It’s a cool, early spring night in Santa Monica, California, and Ian Rogers is sitting cross-legged on the floor of his house, a glass of red wine at his side, a Minor Threat record on the stereo.
Each of the eight subunits has a different stiffness, so placing the blocks in a specific pattern gives each wing a ‘tunable’ flexibility. Just two small motors are enough to twist the entire wing, adjusting the way it cuts through the air.
It’s sold as a must-have accessory to give urban SUVs a whiff of the outback. But U.K. officials say drivers who use spray-on mud to avoid identification by police speed cams face hefty fines for obscuring their license plates.
‘Third Wave’ Author and AOL Co-Founder Steve Case on U.S. entrepreneurship and why he foresees more partnerships between big companies and startups.
Tensions between Iran and the United States have been on the rise, as the Tehran regime builds up its nuclear program and threatens to close one of the world’s most important waterways. In recent days, as many as three U.S. aircraft carrier groups have been in the vicinity of Iran’s shores. Tehran apparently captured a stealthy American spy drone largely intact – and put the remains on display for the world to see. The possibility of an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran is being openly floated in the international press. Iranian nuclear scientists are being regularly killed by magnetic mines – a likely component of a campaign of physical and online sabotage that shows no sign of let-up.
AllPeers CTO Matt Gertner has a well-crafted follow up on his Just Browsing blog, in which he directly challenges my claim: “Michael, I’m scoffing. What are these reasons of which you speak?”
“Almost everything we’ve done in the last 200 years has made divorce easier,” said Mike McManus, founder of a Potomac, Maryland, organization called Marriage Savers. “You want to slow down the process, not speed it up.”

A: For sure. Crowdsourcing was originally based on economics. The whole impetus for corporations to use it was to save money in the beginning. Internet real estate is essentially free.
Arik, who lives in the Israeli town of Modi’in east of Tel Aviv, wrote on the Internet site that Sahar “expresses better than anyone else how much the feeling of despair has spread in the face of never-ending terrorism.”
“Everyone who sends their name to the moon, like I’m doing, becomes part of the next wave of lunar explorers,” said Cathy Peddie, deputy project manager for LRO at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “The LRO mission is the first step in NASA’s plans to return humans to the moon by 2020, and your name can reach there first. How cool is that?”
The Contract for the Web must be not a list of quick fixes but a process that signals a shift in how we understand our relationship with our online community. It must be clear enough to act as a guiding star for the way forward but flexible enough to adapt to the rapid pace of change in technology. It’s our journey from digital adolescence to a more mature, responsible, and inclusive future.
Windows users can turn to Adobe Photoshop Elements, a $100 baby brother to the $650 Photoshop. A Mac version of Photoshop Elements isn’t due until next year, and Adobe’s plans for an online photo editor based on Photoshop aren’t yet fully baked.
Maybe I’m just confused. Is the movie primarily about how scientists aren’t communicating well with the public? If that’s so there are a few good moments but also a lot of unnecessary filler and the message isn’t made entirely clear. If the film is about the reality of global warming, how it is something that we can change and will certainly affect the poor of the world, this message is also present but also gets muddied in the shuffle. Maybe it’s about something else entirely, but many of those who reviewed the film seem to think that a fitting alternate title could be “An Incoherent Truth.” Rather than being accused of being too “literal-minded” to get it I think something that Chris wrote about framing during the last kerfuffle over the subject needs to be kept in mind;
Videogames aren’t the only place memento has become crucial. You could describe to someone what it’s like to hang out with friends in VR platforms like VRchat and High Fidelity, simulacra that resist conventional description, or you could snap a photo and send it to a friend. The sustained community growth of Rec Room, the social VR world, has led to users creating platform-specific Instagram accounts—a virtual username and avatar the only markers of identity necessary. Still, the experiences, as with any Instagram post, translate. Posing together after a virtual paintball game or sitting around a user-created campfire establish a sensory link to activities that only “happened,” at least by conventional definition, in your brain.
That distinction ignores social media’s well-known role as a tool of mass radicalization. Without explicitly espousing violence, these white-supremacist extremists can still recruit potential followers to a set of beliefs with deeply violent roots in Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South. It should come as no surprise that a protest anchored in hate would erupt in violence. For tech companies to defend those online discussions as peaceful protests is disingenuous at best.
Hofman is already seeing this happen. “I hate the fact that I have to use DonorsChoose,” she says. “It gives administrations and politicians an easy way out. They don’t have to worry about giving their teachers what they need anymore, because other people will.”
Once passengers get to the screening system, bins for putting your shoes and jackets will be easier to find and there will be a new generation of x-ray machines, known as millimeter wave portals.
By spending time on your phone, Albers says you will fail to achieve the goal of vacation and much more. This is because using technology means being connected to the people and things that stress us out, and we can therefore never truly escape the feelings that vacation is supposed to quell. Much like your mobile device, if you never recharge your batteries, you will burn out.
You can find WIRED a lot of places these days. There’s the magazine, of course (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year!). There’s this website, which you might be reading on a laptop or tablet but are probably reading on your phone. There’s YouTube and Instagram and Facebook and Twitter and Snapchat and Glizznork, all but one of which are very real things. But starting today, there’s a new addition to that panoply of platforms: your television.
When “HTTPS” is at the beginning of a URL, it indicates your sessions on that website are encrypted, and therefore more secure. If there is only “HTTP,” it means your sessions are not encrypted. It should be noted that for sites in which personal accounts and log-ins are not required, “HTTP” is perfectly fine.
“The Taliban have used pictures of attractive women as the front of their Facebook profiles and have befriended soldiers,” the March review warned, according to the Australian Website News.com.au.
Shkreli stepped down as the head of Turing after prosecutors charged him with securities fraud late last year. Valeant is the target of more than 10 government probes, plus multiple shareholder lawsuits.
