“We’re moving aggressively to deliver the most possible value to our key customers – audiences, advertisers and publishers – and seize the major new opportunities we see ahead for the Internet,” said Terry Semel, Yahoo! chairman and chief executive officer. “The Internet is continuing to grow and evolve at a rapid pace, and we’re reshaping Yahoo! to be a leader in this transformation, just as we did successfully five years ago. Our strategy capitalizes on big emerging trends and leverages our core strengths in search, media, communities and communications. We believe having a more customer-focused organization, supported by robust technology, will speed the development of leading-edge experiences for our most valuable audience segments. In turn, we plan to drive growth and profitability by leveraging our deep audience insights to create a full-fledged advertising network, with a marketplace that meets supply and demand both on Yahoo!’s valuable owned-and-operated network and across the entire Internet.”

Do I “love” Ice Cream Sandwich? No. Love is a big word that I reserve for living creatures. But after spending a good amount of time with the new OS, I look at my iPhone 4S and feel *jealous *that I can’t tap into all of the new Android fun.

OpenStreetMap founder Steve Coast says the project is “still waiting for the big one.” But in addition to Nestoria and so many other small outfits making the leap to OSM, some bigger organizations have taken note.

“The problem with those SVOD platforms is there [are] no brands, the economics are really inferior and if we work with those devices and created the right economic model I think it could be a positive. Right now I think what we are doing is we’re feeding those platforms. Those platforms are trading at higher multiples than we are and we are the ones that have the juice. We are the ones that have the content that bring those alive,” he said.
Extracting a batch of stem cells from an embryo destroys the embryo, which opponents consider akin to taking a life.
The more connected we are, the more we are all just pixels on a screen. And we crave more pixels, pixels talking to us, responding to us, acknowledging us—as often as possible.
Be sure to check out the comments on the original story for more tips. The overwhelming advice seemed to be “stick to PC gaming,” where the high barriers to entry can tend to filter out the young. But there’s also a good argument for finding a solid team on your favorite console and sticking with them.
A relatively small number of these sites have something to do with marijuana commerce, and the vast majority of these are devoted to selling seeds, which isn’t illegal in many countries. Even in the United States, where seeds are considered contraband, there’s little consequence in getting caught.
The point is: I am going to assume that the thruster accelerates the ship – which may not agree with the movie. Moving on.

“It might be really expensive to hire a full-time person, so if you don’t have the money to keep them all year, they go contract,” he said.
I’m a sucker for robots of any sort, but make them big and creepy and you’ve got my attention. This one does so in spades. Titanoboa is a 50 foot long electromechanical snake weighing in at 2,000 pounds, built by the same guys who brought us the giant mechanical spider seen at Maker Faire the last couple years.

Rogers has always urged the industry to make music easier to get—advice the major labels have consistently ignored, choosing instead to erect an obstacle course of odd laws, adversarial formats, and frustrating software. Partly as a result, the business has slowly deteriorated from a cash-moated kingdom to a midapocalyptic crazytown, with all sides locked in gainless combat.

I absolutely love Aaron Renier’s Spiral-Bound (one of my picks for non-traditional kids’ comics last fall) and have been waiting for his next book for some time. My wait is finally over. The Unsinkable Walker Bean came out last month, and it’s a whopper of a tale: pirates, giant woman-headed lobster monsters from the deep, and a mysterious cursed skull. (Trust me: it’s much better than the last Indiana Jones flick.) This one is targeted at a slightly older crowd than Renier’s original, but should still be fine for tweens and up.
