“Hol van egy konnektor?” was the question of the moment – that’s Hungarian for “Where is an outlet?”
However, the documents illustrate the business model of the RedPaper – an experimental online information market.
Thompson: Are there other things? I know that labeling something as false and that fact checkers flagged it had an inverse effect of what everyone expected and you rolled that back. Has there been anything else that has had a surprising effect, where it’s been less effective than you expected or more effective?
“I didn’t realize they were tracking my every move the whole time I had the car,” said the man, who did not want to be identified and said he was “only going as fast as everyone else was.”
“The total cost from the company’s inception to the first landing on the moon is going to be under $50 million. And that means including developing everything. Going forward, the cost is going to be $10 million [per mission]. And that’s what makes it a great business,” he said.
A major concern of intellectual property owners is protecting that property on the Net and setting a price for it.

Tony Campaigne, a stock trader and an old friend of Zimmerman, is having Moran install a wireless network in his home office.
Backups are another important factor in modern media libraries. If you’re like me, you spend a non-trivial amount of time cultivating your media library. Painstakingly ensuring everything is properly tagged, has good cover art, and being generally meticulous about keeping the media library in good shape. If you’ve done all of that work and you’re not backing your library up, you are, potentially, one drive failure away from having to redo all of that work. Our current WD drive has two disks that I keep in a RAID 1, or mirrored, configuration, where the drives are kept as duplicates of each other. This brings my 2 TB drive down to 1 TB of useable space. With no room for more drives, I would need to add another dive to expand or to look at getting a speed acceleration from striping. Well, in my case, I am doing just that, starting to push out to an offsite backup. Honestly, I would prefer to have the speed of a striped array with the backup of a mirror, known as RAID 10 configuration in addition to offsite backups. This is an option offered by the Drobo that makes the whole system very attractive. The Drobo technology goes somewhat above and beyond the standard RAID definitions with something they call BeyondRAID technology and provides a level of flexibility in striping the drives and backing up the drives that is unprecedented in a non-enterprise level storage appliance.

In the past couple of years, many number theorists have given up on trying to understand Mochizuki’s papers. But if Mochizuki or his followers can provide a thorough and coherent explanation for why Scholze and Stix’s picture is too simplistic (assuming that it is), “this might go a long way towards relieving some of the fatigue and maybe giving people more willingness to look into this thing again,” Kedlaya said.
Apple and Google are cracking down on obnoxious online ads. And they just might change the way the web works in the process.
Teachers at Yishun Town Secondary School in Singapore will take roll with short-messaging service – marking the names of absent students in an electronic database.

“A password is a construct of the past that has run out of steam,” said Joseph Atick, chief executive of Identix, a Minnesota designer of fingerprint-based authentication. “The human mind-set is not used to dealing with so many different passwords and so many different PINs.”
For BitTorrent, initiatives like the Arthur Newman promotion and the Kaskade Bundle are just the start of a process that, it’s hoped, will move the software and company further into the entertainment industry mainstream. It’ll be a long haul, Mason said, but once executives – who tend to be all about the numbers, after all – see the results BitTorrent can deliver in terms of fan engagement, they’ll get the picture.
