The company’s cloud infrastructure business, Amazon Web Services (AWS), also fell short of expectations. AWS brought in $4.1 billion in revenue, enough to generate $916 million in operating income (good for a 22% operating margin), but the Street was hoping for closer to $1 billion in AWS operating profits. For years, the much more profitable and rapidly growing business has been helping stabilize Amazon’s consolidated results as the company reinvests in expanding core e-commerce operations around the world.
But Cleaver’s transition to San Francisco’s tech scene didn’t go smoothly. She had always been comfortable in circles of men — she spent her twenties investigating police officers, after all. But the clubhouse vibe of the San Francisco tech scene surprised her. She found herself drowned out in meetings; her ideas were disregarded. She felt constantly questioned. In 2013, her difficulties at work culminated in an argument: Cleaver called her boss at Change.org a misogynistic prick (“It was a statement of fact,” she says) and got fired.
Mad Catz (MCZ) said the GameShark Media Player would turn Sony’s (SNE) console, when combined with Sony’s networking adapter, into a playback device for MP3 and OGG audio files, MPEG and DivX video files, and JPEG and PNG photographic files.
“We have thousands of open positions at any given moment, and we intend to hire about 25,000 professionals in the next four years in the United States,” Rometty wrote in a USA Today piece published on Tuesday afternoon.
Because Apple won’t be opening boxes in the stores, Allen said buying an iPhone on Friday – when big crowds are expected – might be faster at Apple stores than at AT&T stores.
All of the software that NASA writes is copyright free, and although the aforementioned rocket guidance system code and other software may be too sensitive to share, many other projects can be shared with anyone – in theory, at least. If the NASA software isn’t open-source, you need to get cleared by the space agency for a release. Sometimes, this is as simple as proving that you’re a U.S. citizen and signing a usage agreement. The problem is that with more than a thousand projects – coded by software developers at 10 different field centers – it has been tricky for outsiders to get an idea of what NASA has. That’s why Lockney and his staff built this master catalog.
The Home device represents an important move in an intensifying battle between Google and other major tech players to establish the dominant “digital assistant.”
>These are all seemingly small enhancements, but they leave the impression that Google’s Android team descended upon its source code in coveralls and hard hats, and proceeded to renovate, refinish, and repaint every square inch of the OS.
I’ll start with the exceptional – Shutterfly – we uploaded our digital pictures and put together several photo albums for ourselves, our extended family, and friends. Easy. Fun. We knew we’d be ordering a bunch of stuff so we signed up for one of their annual print plans. We had a brief hiccup with using that plan when we made our first purchase, but a single phone call to their customer service solved the problem.
In 1999, Raytheon took action against some of its own employees it suspected of compromising company information. Some of them learned the hard way that talking about one’s employer “privately,” and even anonymously, can be risky.
Tweets can contain links, photos, GIFs, or videos. But if you’re tweeting text, you’re limited to 280 characters. It used to be 140, which was even more stifling, but once you get used to it you’ll learn to love the brevity. It helps make your tweets pithy, and there’s much less rambling you have to read when scanning other tweets. Some even say Twitter helps us become better writers.
“This agreement proves good things can happen when the parties are responsible, resolute and stay at the table,” Davis said. “If you walk away from the table, nothing can get done.”
Despite the size of the sites, the takedowns should by no means end the dark web’s vibrant trade in drugs, which researchers at Carnegie Mellon estimated in 2015 to cumulatively generate revenue in the hundreds of millions of dollars, annually. After AlphaBay’s shutdown, many of its users also flocked to another site known as Dream Market, which is likely the second-largest marketplace, ahead of Hansa. Now Dream Market will no doubt take more refugees from Hansa, to become the dark web’s reigning bazaar of the moment.
Farrell cites processes such as update requests and data collection that are done without a particular or specifically designed technology which are ripe for automation. “Today, many companies use emails to get things approved. Things get lost. There’s no system to track the emails. This requires whoever initiates the request to follow up and spend a lot of time tracking to get their approval request done…We believe automation is going to enable today’s workers to focus on more high-value work.”
You would think that the internet would hold a wealth of information about such an unusual animal. At the very least, a vomiting shrimp should be a YouTube sensation. But my internet trawls came up mostly empty. Dr. SkySkull, one of the other tour attendees, turned up a composite image of the shrimp, a viperfish, and a glowing cloud of expelled gunk on the NOAA Ocean Explorer website, but that was just about all.
We’re usually pretty good about filtering things before they get to him on things like that. In the case of “Between Two Ferns,” because of the original problems with the healthcare.gov website, we were pretty far behind the ball and we had to throw a couple Hail Mary’s. But it’s a gut thing. We’re willing to try things that some folks in Washington will say is un-presidential. I’ve always been of the view that people want to see their President periodically not taking himself too seriously. He has very good comic timing. So he does very well on these videos.
A San Francisco-based startup called Netlify wants to make it easier to avoid these sorts of outages by automatically distributing its customers’ content to multiple cloud computing providers. Users don’t need accounts with Amazon, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, or any other cloud company—Netlify maintains relationships with those services. You just sign up for Netlify, and it handles the rest.
“I’ll be honest, I had a meltdown a couple of months ago,” confesses Nyguyen. “I was like, Guys GIFs are a fad, it’s going to go away, we pushed it too far. And I remember this one person said, Are your really worried? I said Yes. They said, Don’t be. GIFs have been around from the start of the Internet. As popular as it is, it won’t go away.”
While keyword spending is on the rise, rich media advertising is also expected to grow significantly, according to Jupiter’s Elliott. This year, he predicts rich media will account for 15 percent of online ad spending, up from 11 percent in 2003. By 2008, he believes 39 percent of all online ad dollars will go to rich media.
“People read these comics and say, ‘Holy shit, this person is amazing! Why didn’t I know about them?'” says Beaton. “And it’s because they weren’t a white dude. There’s only so much room in the history book, but the whole conversation about who gets to be in the history book is changing, and I think that’s pretty amazing.”
Poor reviews of the iPhone 8, which comes 10 years after Apple released the first version of the revolutionary phone, drove down shares of the company to near two-month lows of $152.75 on Thursday, as investors worried pre-orders for the device had come in well below previous launches.
There are many reasons for the reluctance. The business cycle is often measured in decades; building new water infrastructure is time-consuming and costly for the more than 500 utilities who control water in California. The market is also heavily regulated, and by law, most utilities are constrained from seeking a profit.
“I clicked loyally every day for a long time,” said Kimberly Chapman, who now runs the website One-Click Charity Check, which reviews online charities. “I even bought the T-shirts for the Hunger Site and the Rainforest Site. I wore the shirts everywhere, trying to help promote the sites.”
Other websites like CancerAnswers charge $15 for information. Others, like Cancer411.org provide survival rates for specific treatments, but the patient must register and answer a lengthy questionnaire – data the site collects for pharmaceutical companies wanting to recruit patients for clinical trials.
That’s why instead of hosting a rally for his campaign in November, Forde asked Wales to host a forum on fake news, a central challenge to US democracy. And it’s why, when he took the stage that night, he made sure everyone in the room shared Wales’ words with their friends on Facebook. As Forde told the audience that night, “This issue is too important for just us in the room.”
Now, obviously an app can’t replicate the actual joys and messes of having a real child, but it does get some features uncannily accurate. For instance, a young baby will spend much of its time asleep, but will also wake you up in the middle of the night for feedings. (Just drag the bottle to the baby. Because Apple keeps dropping and adding “explicit” apps from iTunes, developer Mike Tsao decided to leave out a breast-feeding option for now.) Shaking the iKid, of course, triggers all sorts of warning bells, but you can actually rock and sing the baby to sleep. Thankfully, you don’t have to sing well for it to work—the iPhone just checks the approximate volume of your voice. Too loud and the baby gets excited.
10. Habitat for Humanity sponsors many stores that sell to the public. My husband and I often wander around in our local store, on our rare date nights. They accept furniture and household donations, and also sell construction supplies that were not needed in their building projects. We stocked much of our temporary condo last year, with inexpensive items from our local ReStore store.

Though there was no official word on how the improvements to Reddit would concretely look like, one engineer tasked with working with moderators to come up with solutions, u/weffrey, mentioned some possibilities in a post, including a pseudo-anonymous feature (“kinda like how Google does ‘fancy fox’ or ‘curious cat’ when you share a document,” the engineer explained), removal reasons, and an option to show reports when something is removed, among others.
In August, Delphi announced that it had joined with Israeli software maker Mobileye to develop the building blocks for a fully autonomous car in about two years.
That got her wheels turning. She wanted to build a game herself, without the killing and violence. So, she turned to her friend Klayman, who has the rare combination of brains, skill and practical experience in both the world of art and sex.
