These ads reflect the evolution marketing messages undergo as brands transition from targeting early adopters to pursuing the mainstream. The focus shifts from the technology and the product itself into the joy an everyday user experiences when interacting with the product.
The distance that triggers a screen lock is somewhat customizable—users can choose between “Near” and “Far” locking distances. While there’s some fluctuation in actual distance because of varying real-world conditions, the “Near” option typically locks your Mac once you step 20-25 feet away from it.

“The credit agencies knew that it was only a matter of time before the people who were doing this would be caught if they kept doing it,” Comey added.
See this Sea-Floor Sunday post from a couple weeks back showing another perspective of the Nigerian continental slope.
If enforced, the patent could conceivably turn all of Netflix’s competitors, no matter what they rent, into paying licensees – or run them out of business entirely.
More from Steve: “We’ve always tried to be at the intersection of technology and liberal arts. To be able to get the best of both, to make extremely advanced products from a technology point of view that also have them be intuitive, easy to use, fun to use.
“It’s the combination of these two things that I think has let us make the kind of creative products like the iPad.
“We’ve got a hands-on area next door, we’d like you to go get your hands on the iPad.”
The inventor of a horse-powered vehicle has given up on his creation and is offering it up sans horse to a lucky winner along with its patent and a $100,000 cash prize. All you have to do is remind him exactly why he built it in the first place because he isn’t sure.
The flash-based game is produced by American Public Media, and tries to give players a better understanding of how the federal budget works and what is required to keep it running smoothly.
To understand the need to look at animal health in order to forecast threats to human health, you can’t do better than the map I’ve inserted above (because Blogger, annoyingly, won’t let me put it below). It has appeared in various forms in various publications for about 10 years but originates I think from the IOM’s Emerging and Reemerging Diseases report in the early 90s. (This iteration comes from the One Health Initiative website.) It depicts the movement of new diseases from animals to humans over about 30 years. It’s up-to-date through SARS and through the 2003-05 movement of H5N1 avian flu around the world. I’m sure H1N1 will be added soon. How many of those outbreaks could we have shortcircuited if we had been warned of their threat in good time?
Grass is a plant that you grow, or smoke, am I right? I had this roommate in college, he was such a stoner he majored in botany just to learn about grow lights. Anyhow, there are a bunch of types of grass, like sedges, which I always get mixed up with sledges. Hey, remember that TV show Sledge Hammer? That was a killer show. “Trust me, I know what I’m doing!” Right? Heh. I wonder what that guy is doing now. IMDB says he was on Law & Order, but who hasn’t been? Has Wil Wheaton been on Law & Order? He totally should be. He’d make an awesome murderer. Did you see the one with Martin Short?
But Perminov, Schweickart adds, is incorrect in assuming that Apophis seriously threatens to strike Earth. From his reply:
“We could not construct a diagnostic classification on the basis of neuroscience findings at this point,” psychiatrist David Kupfer, who chaired the committee overseeing the DSM-5, told the journal Science last year.
Levrat lives in the Swiss city of Lausanne, just 45 minutes away from the Payerne aerological survey station, where balloons are launched twice a day. After he saw a television news story about radiosonde hunting, he contacted MeteoSuisse, the federal agency that runs the station. They introduced him to Roland, who occasionally hangs out there and has collected more than 150 radiosondes. He also runs a website dedicated to the activity. “He’s not just a casual hunter,” Levrat says. “He really promotes this activity.”
The N-Gage features multiplayer game play on a tri-band mobile phone that supports Bluetooth wireless networking and includes an MP3 player and an FM radio.
Creating further confusion (and still in response to the Gawker post), Dunham went on to claim, “He’s never show [sic] aggression to anyone anywhere else but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t, so I’m vigilant.” Yet in July 2013, just a few months after her published essay, the following exchange had occurred between Dunham, her boyfriend’s sister, and some friends:
Gateway shocked the consumer electronics industry last November when it introduced a 42-inch plasma television for around $3,000 – hundreds of dollars below competitors. The televisions will be Gateway branded, but some other products may carry other manufacturers’ names.
That future may already be unfolding: Hackers have found a way to bypass a chip designed to prevent the Mac OS from running on non-Apple PCs, which are often cheaper than Macs.
Strava’s own rules of use explicitly do not sanction illegal behavior, like speeding or center-line violations. But it’s also pretty clear from even a casual perusal of Strava segments that speeding, at least, is common.
