McCarthy, who spearheaded the site on behalf of the Republican minority party, said lawmakers wouldn’t automatically adopt the most popular ideas. “It’s not American Idol,” McCarthy told CNN.
Thomas M. Wagner has uploaded over 300 science fiction reviews to YouTube since 2013. He’s not a major star, but his content has attracted an audience of around 4,400 bookworms who subscribe to his channel. In return for their attention, Wagner likely receives less than $100 a month in advertising revenue, according to the analytics company SocialBlade.
[bug id=”ces2012″] Wired is heading to Las Vegas to cover the crazy, whirlwind electronics trade show known as CES. We’ll be hitting the announcements, demos and debauchery hard and heavy. But who exactly are we?
The most concerted effort to revise the CFAA came after a U.S. attorney used it to launch a heavy-handed prosecution against internet activist Aaron Swartz for what many considered a minor infraction. Swartz, who helped develop the RSS standard and was a cofounder of the advocacy group Demand Progress, was indicted after he gained entry to a closet at MIT and allegedly connected a laptop to the university’s network to download millions of academic papers that were distributed by the JSTOR subscription service. Swartz was accused of repeatedly spoofing the MAC address of his computer to bypass a block MIT had placed on the address he used. Although JSTOR did not pursue a complaint, the Justice Department pushed forward with prosecuting Swartz. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz insisted that “stealing is stealing” and that authorities were just upholding the law.
Did I get a word in edgewise during this interview? No. But it’s quite alright, as Boll touched on every topic that I’d hoped he would. The entire, unexpurgated, uncensored transcript of the phone call is below.

Osamu Tezuka, by Pop Mhan
“I was given a few choices,” said Mhan, who has worked for Tokyopop, Wildstorm, DC, Marvel, Top Cow and Dark Horse. “But I really honed in on Tezuka because, being a student of sequential illustration, Tezuka has really made a big impact on graphical storytelling, especially in Japan, where he’s dubbed the ‘The Godfather of Manga.’ His talent, insight and abilities inspired future generations to achieve the same high standards his legendary body of work set forth.”
Later New York City mobs drew plenty of public interest. One had more than 100 participants mulling over the purchase of a “Love Rug” at Macy’s department store. Another resulted in a crowd of 150 people making bird noises while sitting on a stone ledge in Central Park. But neither mob drew police attention.
Playboy‘s shift isn’t completely new. The magazine re-launched Playboy.com last year “as a safe-for-work site,” and has seen significant success. “Tens of millions of readers come to our non-nude website and app every month for, yes, photos of beautiful women, but also for articles and videos from our humor, sex and culture, style, nightlife, entertainment and video game sections,” the magazine says.
Mobility is increasingly important to today’s workforce: Sixty-two percent of survey respondents said it is important to be mobile and accessible in their daily business.

And it’s interesting that when asked about replacing Ballmer at Wired’s business conference this past May (see video below), Larson-Green was uncharacteristically blunt. “I wouldn’t rule it out, but I’m not in a hurry,” Larson Green said. “Give me a year and ask me again.”
Danni Ashe did not become the most downloaded woman on the internet because she was the prettiest stripper in America or because she had the biggest boobs. (Although, having spent time with her in person, I can tell you that she’s gorgeous in real life, more so than in her pictures. And she does have beautiful breasts.)
Roberts and the other two judges hearing the case also posed tough questions for Verizon Communications, which is challenging the constitutionality of the subpoenas under the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act. U.S. District Judge John Bates earlier had approved use of the subpoenas, forcing Verizon to turn over names and addresses for at least four Internet subscribers.
The paper said the Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaida-linked, web-based organization, would “follow up with members interested in joining and contact them via e-mail.”
The party site bolsters its false claim that Obama refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance with an equally false quote attributed to the candidate. “I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides. There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message.”
Monsters vs. Aliens
Synopsis: 3-D adventure pictures Reese Witherspoon as wholesome fiancee Susan Murphy, who turns into the 50-foot-tall Ginormica after she’s hit by a comet. First she’s incarcerated with Dr. Cockroach Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie), gelatinous B.O.B. (Seth Rogen) and a half-ape, half-fish creature known as The Missing Link (Will Arnett). Then the “monsters” get a government reprieve to fight off an alien invasion from the evil Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson). Kiefer Sutherland, Stephen Colbert and Paul Rudd also lend their voices to the film, directed by Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2).

“You probably catch some” dangerous offenders “but you also do a lot of damage to people who are legitimately trying to make a new start and improve themselves,” said Larry Spalding, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union office in Tallahassee, Fla.
“We’re trusting there’s not some anti-Semitic bias,” said Michael Salata, the company’s business development manager, referring to the translations provided by the Good News 4 Me. “We have a lot of faith in their coverage.”
The palm sized PDA-like Phraselator lets users speak or select from a screen of English phrases and matches them to equivalent pre-recorded phrases in other languages. The device then broadcasts the foreign-language MP3 file and records reply dialog for later translation. Unlike other machine translators, the Phraselator does not require that users train it to recognize their voice, and it produces human rather than synthesized speech.
Greg Kasavin, editor at the video game website Gamespot.com, attributed Halo‘s popularity to its story, which is rich for a video game and has been further chronicled in a series of novels and spawned an array of fan offshoots, such as the short Red Vs Blue internet films.
“You’re trading fidelity for capacity, so you better know how to develop playlists and exchange task-specific music programs as part of your out-of-the-door rituals,” he said. “I do the old ‘spectacles, testicles, iPod, wallet’ sign of the cross on my way to the gym each morning.”

Mark, a software developer, had ordered the 100 micrograms of acid through a listing on the online marketplace Silk Road. He found a seller with lots of good feedback who seemed to know what they were talking about, added the acid to his digital shopping cart and hit “check out.” He entered his address and paid the seller 50 Bitcoins – untraceable digital currency – worth around $150. Four days later, the drugs (sent from Canada) arrived at his house.
Many companies aren’t as prepared to handle the scale of the credential stuffing threat. Shape Security’s Ghosemajumder says that it’s pretty typical at this point for corporate clients to see 90 percent of their logins come from malicious attacks. He has even worked with customers who deal with credential stuffing in 99.9 percent of login attempts to their service. And while credential dumps from leaks and breaches are the primary fuel for these attacks, criminals can also diversify their approach by using credential pairs gathered from phishing attacks.
Tacx sells dozens of Real Life Videos featuring scenic rides from around the world, with enough variety to keep any rider happy all winter long. The image quality of the RLVs is excellent, and if you’re lucky enough to have a large monitor, this is the next-best thing to riding outdoors. Real Life Video is my favorite Fortius mode, and I happily ride hundreds of virtual kilometers this way every winter.

More recently, Apple made millions of old power cords incompatible by replacing the 30-pin charging port on older iPhones and iPads with the much smaller Lightning port in 2012.
