Maybe that’s the crux of my disappointment with the show. David and Amy dated for three months, and appear in at least three episodes. Yet they didn’t take advantage of most of the latest dating technology; the entire online portion of their relationship consisted of scheduling, according to David.
That’s what has happened with an anonymizer system that was originally developed and funded by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to help government employees shield their identity online. It is now being co-funded and promoted by the civil liberties group Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Facebook, another company without its own smartphone operating system, also is betting on VR that works on standalones headsets build by its Oculus subsidiary. The Oculus headset also requires a connection to a high-powered PC. Oculus is expected to reveal the latest updates to its VR products at a conference next week.
Now that they had an engineer, Nick felt pretty good going into his meeting on Sunday, January 5, with what would, with any luck, be their first paying customer. He met the general manager of a small property that was part of a giant media concern. The GM knew how the game was played: He was happy to be a “customer” in exchange for a deep discount. He looked over Nick’s fee schedule and selected the service he thought his company would need, then negotiated a 75 percent discount for a three-month trial. It wasn’t much in the way of revenue for Boomtrain but it was something, and if it was successful they could expect the parent company to be a great channel partner, maybe—who knew?—bringing them into their other properties across the board.
Cleary’s only connection to LulzSec, Topiary claims, was that he ran a chat server that hosted a public LulzSec “fan room” where supporters could gather. “We had identical fan chats on 2600, AnonOps, Efnet, Rizon, Unreal, etc…” Topiary says, listing off other chat networks.
7. Force her to write an article for publication, defending the existence of Jar-Jar Binks and the casting of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker.
That was a statement issued exactly five years ago Tuesday by Kori Bernards, a spokeswoman for the Motion Picture Association of America.
At Si Spain, a Spanish cultural website, messages of sympathy started to pour in at a condolence message board set up for families of terror victims, including Miguel Angel Blanco, the Basque city councilman kidnapped and murdered by Basque separatists in 1997.
All of that makes Project Zero the logical next step in Google’s anti-spying efforts, says Chris Soghoian, a privacy-focused technologist at the ACLU who has closely followed the zero-day vulnerability issue. He points to the now-famous “fuck these guys” blog post by a Google security engineer addressing the NSA’s spying practices. “Google’s security team is angry about surveillance,” Soghoian says, “and they’re trying to do something about it.”
As it turns out, AT&T and Apple do not have a relationship as regards Lollapalooza. ITunes can sell the un-“censored” versions – if that’s what ends up getting approved by the artist and label.
Richard Davis, head of the BIPM’s mass and related quantities section, and Quinn, a paper co-author and emeritus director of the BIPM, could not be reached for comment.
The workshop is that of Wally Yachts, a Monaco-based company (naturally) responsible some of the most sophisticated yachts money can buy. A quick scroll through the company’s website will find something for everyone, from the lowly multimillion dollar recording artist up through your standard captain of industry. For the most lucrative Bond villain types there’s the Wally Why, a concept designed in collaboration with Hermes that is half-boat, half-private island (and still purportedly highly friendly to the environment!)
“The scammers seem to be scared to death of Ashley,” says Ludlow, who in his spare time is a philosophy professor at the University of Michigan. “They’re on the warpath against her.”
But a challenge to existing business models, however radical, is minor compared to a wholesale rethinking of the art of fiction. And in announcing Pottermore, that’s what Rowling promised: an acknowledgment that the internet makes possible an entirely new form of narrative, one that readers can not only consume but explore and build upon.
Twitter’s uniquely successful evangelism of its own technology might just turn the company into a test case for how technology companies can and should communicate with one another in the age of social media.
For a number of reasons, the claim is probably doomed in court. But the premise of the lawsuit—that the Serbian Crown was sabotaged online—isn’t as farfetched as it might seem.
The TSA can’t seem to find the balance between convenience and security. Even when the line moves smoothly, the process feels invasive, ad hoc, and simultaneously ineffective: Screeners seem to constantly fail tests to find fake explosives or weapons.
Google has taken its 360-degree Street View cameras into some of the most famous and acclaimed galleries, to open the world’s art collection to the internet.
But the tactical advantages are obvious, too. Sudden squalls have humbled superior navies since the Persians fell back from the shores of Greece. Even the term kamikaze, meaning “divine wind,” originated with the hurricane that overwhelmed the invading Mongol fleet in 1291. The United States doesn’t want to follow in the wake of those empires.
“When she comes over, she sometimes checks her mail, or we go on IRC to bug some people with the icky love stuff, but we don’t really do so for longer than five or 10 minutes. We already spend enough time on our computers, so we would like to do other things when we’re together,” Nostalg1c said.
It’s not the first time ChoicePoint has had a security lapse. In 2002, the company acknowledged that it had left an internal corporate database viewable by anyone with a web browser.
This week’s Sea-Floor Sunday grabs another great image from the Virtual Seismic Atlas website.
2. Create a Solid Shredding Policy – I’ve got old paperwork sitting around in my office that really needs to be shredded. My old shredder, however, can only handle about five hand-fed pages at a time. And while it can shred credit cards, it’s not so good at CD/DVDs even though it’s marketed as being able to handle those (causes jams all the time). I’ve been looking for a better shredder but I believe I’ve since found something even better.
Firefox: Go to the hamburger icon in the upper righthand corner. Click Add-ons. Go to the lefthand column and click Plugins. Go to the dropdown next to Shockwave Flash and select Never Activate.
Originally, Apache was designed for Unix. Now versions are available for most operating systems including Windows, OSX and Linux. There are also numerous add-ons and tailored versions of the server using the Apache module API. The name Apache comes from its origins as a series of “patch files.”
