Technology could be used to at least shore up those foundations. The Awareness and Localization of Explosives-Related Threats (ALERT) Center at Northeastern University is a Department of Homeland Security “Center of Excellence” (a swanky name for funded R&D centers) that is looking into the future of security checkpoints, and it’s got some intriguing ideas. Those include making checkpoints painless—maybe even invisible—and new video recognition techniques to spot and track suspicious behavior.
SAN JOSE, California – A developing broadband technology promises download speeds up to 10 times that of DSL, but you’ll need to stop by Radio Shack and pick up some old-fashioned gear first.
But why does this even need to exist? Unlike the carnival game quality of how-old.net and twinsornot.net, “is it nude” seems easy enough to answer with our own eyeballs.

So they decided to copy Friendster, and they basically made an entire replica of it but they made one crucial mistake, which is that they allowed people to enter HTML into the template.
I would simply add that you should read Romenesko while you can. He won’t be around forever, but his contribution will last. I’m not talking about his wholesaling of newsroom gossip; I’m talking about his trailblazing business model, succeeding where the websites of major newspapers have pretty much failed. That is, he’s proven that speedily aggregated, often unsubstantiated information is marketable. Both the Huffington Post and the investors behind Tina Brown’s proposed aggregation site are also betting on that.
That Mekas is still on the cutting edge of filmmaking should surprise no one. He’s been called, alternately, the godfather and midwife of the American indie scene.
“I want people to feel empowered and enthusiastic. I want them to go home and take apart all their toys,” said Rosenthal.
Turkey is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance. If authorities there were behind the hack attack, it would mean that a NATO ally had attempted to spy on a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, presumably without the knowledge or approval of U.S. authorities, and for reasons that don’t appear to be related to a criminal or counter-terrorism investigation.

Uber’s crises have come so fast that they’ve piled on top of one another. We’ve laid out some of the companies most infamous milestones.
This was more than just a cool hack. She built it to show that people could control a sex device securely, anonymously, and peer-to-peer. “No one else has to know you’re connecting to my vibrator except me and you, and in some cases even I don’t know who’s connecting,” Lewis says.

Since launching in July 2006, OpenDNS has added features to its services, such as removing confirmed phishing sites from the database, letting users choose to have craigslist.cm automatically changed to craigslist.com to prevent domain squatting, and providing a keyword browsing service that works on multiple computers. Also, OpenDNS catches typos such as wordpres.sorg and just fixes it. DNS Advantage does not yet have such services, but says it plans to add new options in the future.

Tesla has just delivered the first 30 models of its most crucial car, the Model 3. The new addition to the Tesla family is supposed to be the “affordable” car, starting at $35,000. Tesla CEO Elon Musk says over half a million people have already paid $1000 to reserve their Model 3.
VATICAN CITY – The Internet caters to the best and worst of human nature and needs regulation to stop depravity flooding cyberspace, Pope John Paul said on Tuesday.
Hahahahaha LMAO ROTFL: Acronyms fail me when I try to encapsulate my reaction to this fake movie trailer from CollegeHumor. Two arch-enemies ruin lives by — what else? — Facebook sabotage. “Caspar sent me…3,000 toilet paper rolls?”
To conclude, the Out of Print eReader jackets will be a great gift this holiday season for that person who enjoys something fun, retro and functional.
“(This gift) honors his lifetime of philanthropy, his lifelong devotion to Stanford and his passionate belief in the value of a liberal arts education. Had he lived, I am certain this is something he would have done himself,” Walter Hewlett said in a press release.
In the interest of protecting future moles and whistleblowers, we’ve assembled a list of Dos and Don’ts for leaking safely:
“The group’s most important claim is that they are presiding over a caliphate,” Mr. Smith said. “The Internet is simply a tool used to manage a global influence operation.”
At GeekDad we have been big fans (and I’m pretty sure most contributors have been big backers) of the Makey Makey Kickstarter project. The team has done really well over at Kickstarter, but the catch is (like with most crowd funded projects) you then have to wait a few months before your rewards arrive.
Feingold called Wyden’s amendment a first step, but said he intended to proceed with his bill.
“I think as more and more people find these sites, they will see a need for government regulation,” Lee says.
It works like this: Anyone can donate money through the fund-raising website CrowdRise, specifying what kind of psychedelics research they want to fund. This money lands in a fund operated by a grantmaking organization called Charities Aid Foundation America that then vets which researchers it doles out the money to. Niño’s aiming for $2 million initially, with the possibility of additional campaigns in the future.
“The cameras are running hacked firmware and it works pretty well,” he says.”Then we take it to a whole new level for processing the images.”
“My account was basically unused because I was getting dozens of replies every day from people who thought the account belonged to the State of Israel,” Meléndez told The New York Times in a story published Tuesday.

It’s a relatively meager haul given the virulence of the malware outbreak, and some researchers are citing it as further evidence that the cyberattack was intended not to make money but to send a message.
It’s an epic of class-action lawsuits in California and elsewhere, and the focus of criminal investigations. The rootkit has even been found on computers run by the Department of Defense, to the Department of Homeland Security’s displeasure. While Sony could be prosecuted under U.S. cybercrime law, no one thinks it will be. And lawsuits are never the whole story.
