Prepaid plans work well for cell phones users who talk 200 minutes or less a month, says the Telecommunications Research & Action Center, a non-profit organization. And if you have more than once cell phone in the family, try substituting one pre-paid cell phone for at least one post-paid cell phone, they suggest.
“The fact that our electric grid was developed independently in different regions of the country, I think actually makes it harder to do a widespread cyberattack. The thing we have to protect the most is what we call an EMS system, that’s the brains of our grid and that’s where we put a significant amount of effort into protecting,” he told FOX Business’ Liz Claman.
An assistant U.S. attorney said that letting the civil case go forward could jeopardize the criminal case. The filing was the first indication the government was also investigating the Genuity deal for possible illegal activity.
That makes Ghostery’s Smart Mode in some ways even more appealing than the AI upgrade. The stripped-down interface highlights key information more cleanly, without first suggesting you wade into the minutia. It turns on smart-tracking by default. And it does its best to cap page-load speeds at five seconds.
Today, weird though it may be, a politician is a brand. The Clinton campaign knows this. At the outset, Clinton’s team hired famed designer Michael Bierut to create its logo. Today, an in-house team handles every aspect of Clinton’s visual brand, including—you guessed it—Pantsuit.
After the earthquake that rocked Haiti on Tuesday, gamers rallied to help pitch in by raising awareness and collecting donations.
While visiting some friends in San Francisco this December, I found and bought a packet of delightful stickers made by a company called Momiji. There was also a tiny wooden doll with Princess Leia buns carrying a cake, which, in case you don’t know, is exactly what I look like ALL THE TIME. So I bought that too. Since we were in Japantown, I assumed that Momijiwas a Japanese company – but after doing a little research (which is a nice way of saying I wanted more stickers so I looked them up online) it turns out they are based in the United Kingdom. They’re a tiny company that creates vibrant and whimsical “message” dolls. And even though I’ve never been much of a doll person – I find them oddly irresistible and mildly addictive.
Wain: Lake Bell and Rob Corddry met on a movie [What Happens in Vegas] not long before Childrens Hospital.
Like many new parents, former Kozmo Chief Technology Officer Chris Siragusa had a lot on his mind when his son, Max, was born four years ago. Omnipresent was the need for a seemingly endless supply of diapers, baby food and formula.
Their solution is a good old-fashioned website, logo, and brand identity book. The site is appealing, in a meticulously crafted, Squarespace kind of way. It even looks a bit like Warby Parker’s site—almost as though you could shop there. In total, the site bridges the history of nuclear power with what Transatomic is doing now. There’s a page dedicated to the science, “where you end up getting the specifics and the feeling of comfort in knowing these guys are experts,” DuPey says.
Oates, the former lead designer for Flickr, immediately wondered if her infant was also going to be laid off. She asked for a week to help shift the program over to its new manager, but the request was denied.
Light pollution occurs when artificial illumination washes out our view of the night sky. But making it hard for astronomers and amateur skywatchers to view the stars is just one of the problems it causes. According to the website:
Public Image Ltd.’s 4-song EP One Drop, which contains the band’s first new material in 20 years, is one of many Record Store Day special releases out this Saturday.
Unfortunately, as well-meaning as they are, these gestures aren’t likely to have much of an impact on the world’s overall energy consumption – at least not until major data centers begin to follow the lead of the boutiques. And that’s not going to happen anytime soon, say energy analysts.
While many state legislatures have genetic privacy on their radar screens, few are concerned with ownership of DNA. And that concerns some experts.
When it reopens May 17, a computer-controlled lighting system will illuminate the hall, simulating sun-dappled water shimmering on the ceiling and walls. The dioramas of preserved sea creatures that have terrified and enchanted generations of New York City schoolkids aren’t going anywhere, but they’ll be joined by a slew of video screens featuring images of marine ecosystems and their living inhabitants, along with interactive displays running on Macintosh G4 computers.
__Update 9/7/2012: Our cries for the slideshow to be remove and an apology to be issued was heard yesterday at 6pm. Thank you to everyone for reaching out and letting the station know that enough is enough. May the force be with you. __
“I think the thing to do here is to prosecute the underlying fraud,” says Hoofnagle. “It seems to me it could be a privacy-enhancing technology that has useful purposes. For instance to call a police tip line or a newspaper perhaps.”
The retailer introduced “Countdown Deals” for Prime members in the days leading up to July 12, with each day of deals focusing on a specific product category [electronics, outdoor living, etc.].
“Also, black is cool,” says Bevil Conway, a neurobiologist at the National Eye Institute and, not coincidentally, the researcher I called a couple of years ago when trying to figure out why people couldn’t tell whether a dress on the internet was blue and gold or brown and white. “Like, black is independently a really neat thing, and the asymmetry between black and white is fascinating.”
Final Fantasy XV, too, previously was the domain of Square Enix’s last remaining Big Name Director, Tetsuya Nomura. But after years of development hell, he quit (or was asked to quit) the project and replaced by upstart director Hajime Tabata, whose smaller-scale Final Fantasy games on the largely forgettable Sony PSP platform turned out to be, against all expectations, the best-received series entries of the last decade.
But students and parents, who weren’t told about the RFID chips until they complained, are upset over what they say are surreptitious tactics the school used to implement the program. They also question the ethics of a monetary deal the school made with the company to test and promote its product, using students as guinea pigs.

But ad blocking doesn’t merely threaten Google’s business, it also negatively impacts that of publishers and independent content creators. It’s a tension that Ghostery is aware of, even if its new monetization efforts don’t address it directly. “We recognize that the digital economy needs an engine of monetization,” says Tillman. “Any long-term solution needs to include content creators and publishers.”
