The subpoena, first reported by TechCrunch, demands “all subscriber information” regarding the two Twitter accounts, including “name, address, contact information, creation date, creation Internet Protocol address and any and all login Internet Protocol addresses.”
The EFF has partnered with Access, a digital freedom activist group, to create the new HTTPS Now website. The new site will keep track of which sites offer HTTPS connections, how much of the site is secure and whether or not the site mixes secure and insecure content.
Ecuador’s foreign minister, Ricardo Patino, said on Twitter that in evaluating Assange’s asylum request, his ministry is “studying the risk claimed by Assange that he would be face a politically motivated trial and could be sentenced to death.”
But if xkcd is currently making headlines, it’s because Munroe’s message to “get out and live!” is provoking a stream of real-time events. For example, Richard Stallman was attacked by ninjas in a comical re-enactment of an xkcd strip as he innocently attempted to give a talk at Yale. Photos circulate of people playing chess on roller coasters.
“I can’t comment on exactly how much the cost will be, but it pains my heart that it will be such a big number,” Koh said.
The park has a number of man-made attractions such as the visitor’s center shown above, as well a number of shops, restaurants and other services. Of course, the real attraction is the canyon itself, so we concentrated our time and attention on that.
Still, Pritchard said he does not believe the sale of the troubled unit will be a big help to VeriSign. “I think it’s a neutral move,” he said. “The question that VeriSign really needs to answer is, where’s the growth going to come from?”

Lorna is a homeschooling mom and artist in England whose kids always seem ready to tackle activities like making neuron keychains from beads. They’re also enthusiastic participants in the challenges thought up by the next blog:
For the past few years, home automation — the so-called smart home — has been coming, but in 2017 it might be time to say it’s here. Products like Amazon’s (NASDAQ: AMZN) Echo/Alexa and Alphabet‘s (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Google Home, along with Apple‘s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone/Siri, have become viable platforms to control smart homes. And while only Amazon and Google have an official presence at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), smart-home devices that work with one or more of those platforms (as well as others) were one of the dominant trends at the show.
Haseltine strongly believes that a database law is not the solution, but neither are the present agreements between Celera and the journal.
Fenn’s earrings are made from gator teeth, and the boardwalk looks masticated and spit out, its component parts hardly visible. An orange-and-white barrier marches across the crumpled walkway, as if it wasn’t patently clear that there’s trouble ahead.
I was telling her how it was a good game because you had to look at the characters’ faces and try and tell if they were telling the truth (for brevity, leaving out the slightly hammy nature to some of this). “It makes it feel like there are real people in the game, and that it matters how well you do.”
There are signs that Netflix is trying to do better. It recently tweaked its UI so that the next episode of a TV series starts automatically after you finish one, simulating the always-something-on-next effect of regular TV. Felix Salmon recently argued that Netflix’s new super-specific, algorithmically suggested microgenres are an effort to make itself more TV-like, an attempt to serve up something from its vast archive of second-tier content that you’ll consent to watch, even if you’re not enthralled by it.

On the internet Atomic Overlook is subject to instant coverage and Lipsky has benefited because of it. Yet, in some ways, this rapid regurgitation is part of the issue. At 38 years, Lipsky is not old, and yet he remembers simpler times with surprisingly few media options.
I’ve spent quite a few happy evenings discussing the 3DS with friends and family now. Each time I’m surprised that many of them still think it is just a DS with a 3D screen, and are oblivious to the better graphics and other interactions like AR Games.
But with that growth comes issues. Hearing a host explaining how they used Squarespace to build the podcast’s website makes sense. Hearing that same host read ads for five different household products each week, though? Maybe less so. “There’s a tension about the sincerity of an endorsement,” Meyers says. “The danger of integrating ads is that the audience gets cynical, and stops believing it.” That danger is even more immediate for a journalistic enterprise like Containers, which explores the global economy through the lens of Oakland’s shipping industry; when reporting hinges on neutrality, even the appearance of being beholden to the industry you’re covering can be trouble.
Hamill used his post-Star Wars celebrity to convince Fox to make videotaped copies of all 120 episodes for him. It was the only “official” collection any fan would see for the next 35 or so years: home-video distribution didn’t exist when the series was produced, and when outfits like Columbia House—the service that promised 10 CDs or VHS tapes for a penny and a commitment to get a lot of mail—wanted to solicit the show in the 1990s, it found Fox and Warner Bros. at odds. Neither wanted to navigate the legal morass or hand off distribution to any other party—especially not to each other. (According to one source, a Warner Bros./DC executive once vowed Fox would release the property “over my dead body.”)
“That is precisely the constituency that the Ashcroft selection seems intended to placate. If there’s one area where a social conservative agenda could manifest itself at DOJ, it is in the area of obscenity prosecution.”
A study conducted by JDA Software Group Inc. found that using a chip card typically added 8 to 12 seconds per check-out process due to the actual transaction, “fumble time” and the time it took the cashier to instruct shoppers on how to use new machines. The study used two different card-reading machines at an unnamed specialty retailer that has more than 4,000 stores.
“We will now see self-driving cars, and that’s going to be a tremendous help to the elderly, who may not be mobile, to the disabled, so that they will have more independence, more freedom. But we also need to understand that there are some concerns about privacy, and other things that we need to kind of reconcile as well,” she said.
Mendez turned to his co-worker, Greg Stoll, a 23-year-old software engineer who had experimented with Google Maps’ API, and asked him to code a way for people to report and find damage assessments on a Google Map.
According to the company’s website, nearly 1500 scientists have “expressed interest” in testing the technology as of late Monday, and more than 17,000 people had signed up to receive word of the results.
“We didn’t come here for the money,” cofounder Keller Rinaudo tells me during my 2012 visit, explaining that the company has first-round funding from the TechFund and several other sources. Instead, he says, they were motivated by the intimacy of the Las Vegas entrepreneurial community. Since its move to the desert a year earlier, Romotive has grown from three employees to 15 and now leases 11 units in the Ogden. We speak while sitting at a table in Romotive’s main apartment/office. Behind us, in an open kitchen, Bobby Walter, who serves as company accountant as well as in-house chef, unwraps packages of sausages to put into a lunchtime jambalaya for the team. Rinaudo concedes that it has been harder to persuade new hires, especially people with families, to uproot themselves and move here, but he’s firm about the benefits of being in Vegas. Space for both living and working is readily available, making it easier for the company to grow.
The FAA now requires all drone owners register their aircraft before flying them in US airspace. You can do that through the FAA’s website or by mail. You provide your name, address, and email address, plus a $5 fee (which will be waived for the first 30 days). The registration’s good for three years, for recreational use only. If you’re not happy about the idea of telling the FAA all about your drone, the aforementioned Academy of Model Aeronautics is your best bet for fighting it.
“This is a very impressive tool,” said Dave Kroll, director of security research at Finjan Software.
