While it will be helpful for management to provide some commentary on how efforts like these are helping Messenger become more integral to Facebook’s business, investors shouldn’t expect the impact to be very noticeable yet. Facebook management warned during the company’s second-quarter earnings call that any catalysts from messaging are not expected to offset an anticipated deceleration in revenue growth caused by ad load being a less significant driver in the second half of the year.
It was called The Battle Cave for good reason. They were battling software code, but also time. In an echo of The War Room in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, their efforts were mapped out on a pair of displays mounted high on the wall, a constant reminder of just how far they were from finishing what was supposed to be the future of Facebook.
It’s something that even Jon Eythorsson’s granddaughter, Kristjana Eythorsdottir, thinks about. She was only 10 years old when the elder Eythorsson, who formally established the Iceland Glaciological Society in 1950, passed away, but she followed his vocation and today works at the Iceland Meteorological Office. Her grey hair is shorn into a spiky pixie cut, and her hiking pants and running shoes suggest she’s ready to set out into the field at a moment’s notice.
And here’s the thing. Just about all of the changes that were submitted were great. The readers were thorough in a way no single editor could ever be, uncovering missed spaces, substituting “an” for “a,” pointing out that our description of Ruby on Rails as a language was incorrect, and digging up an embarrassing number of typos.
Users of the site, though, testify to a variety of experiences with the drugs that seem to indicate that the Freeze is actually a botulinum toxin-derivative, as discountmedspa.com’s proprietor claims. If the site’s comments are a con — it’s a very elaborate one.
“We are very disappointed by the last-minute reluctance of the CIA and the NSA to meet our delegation in spite of the advanced preparations that had been made,” said Chairman Carlos Coelho in a statement on Thursday. “As a result we are cutting short our visit to Washington and returning to Europe immediately.”
While the format of Jason Shiga’s Empire State isn’t quite as mind-blowing as his earlier choose-your-own-adventure Meanwhile, it’s still a very geeky, very funny book. It’s a spin on the classic boy-pursues-girl story, but oddly enough this graphic novel is more realistic than most Hollywood movies. Or maybe that’s not odd. At any rate, it’s sure to be a hit for the favorite comic-book-loving dad in your life. Check out the full review or buy it from Amazon. (JL)
The National Institute of Drug Abuse paints a dismal picture of psychedelics. NIDA’s website says the drugs result in neurotoxicity, violence and crime.
“I’m hopeful that Yahoo will realize that its user base respects a company that respects its users’ freedom to post and access a variety of material undaunted by governmental pressure,” Greene said.
But for some in the palliative care community—the doctors, nurses, and caregivers that manage end-of-life care—the battle over aid in dying is a distraction from the real problems that dying people face. “I think it’s a moot debate that’s divorced from the reality of end-of-life care,” says David Magnus, a bioethicist at Stanford Medical School. That reality is clear in a report published last year by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science.
A proxy, on a technical level, is very private. A proxy won’t save you if you’ve decided to give personally identifiable information to every website you come across (e.g., filling in your dogster.com profile with your home address, phone number, and medical history), but using a proxy server means your IP can’t be tracked easily by common web browsing.
In the Meowmorphosis, you’ll meet Gregor Samsa, a humble young man who works as a fabric salesman to support his parents and sister. Gregor’s quiet life goes strangely awry when he wakes up one morning late for work and finds that, inexplicably, he is now a man-sized baby kitten. Midway through Quirk’s new edition, Gregor escapes into the streets of Prague, where he stumbles into an alarming landscape populated by creepy characters who’ve wandered in from some of Kafka’s other most famous stories. That’s right, The Meowmorphosis is a mash-up with the rest of Kafka’s literary life.

The dispute affects one of the central tenets of the antitrust settlement: improving the ability of rival software vendors to compete against Microsoft’s own programs running on Windows. One settlement provision allows Microsoft’s own programs to launch only if rival software “fails to implement a reasonable technical requirement.”
Apple is also bringing the ability to send money to friends or other people through its payment service, Apple Pay. So far, the service has limited payments to purchases of products and services from companies and other organizations.
“Think about it, elderly people, people with conditions right, frail people, it’s hard for them to manipulate digital interfaces with their hands, their eyesight many times is not as good. So, voice-activated interfaces gives us the only opportunity to actually give them advice, provide them access to digital interfaces.”
__Wired.com: __The news of your appointment to the National Council on Disability was greeted with praise from groups like the Autism Society of America and the American Association of People with Disabilities, but also stinging attacks. On one site, a mother of two autistic kids compared you to a “blind surgeon” who would be unable to do an effective job on the council. Were you surprised by the intensity of these attacks?

For years, video has overshadowed other erotic opportunities online. Yet as the noose of 18 U.S.C. 2257 tightens, I’m wondering if we’ll see a resurgence of alternative – and perhaps more creative – sexual content. (The law, which became effective as of June 23, 2005, places onerous new requirements on businesses that produce, sell or show adult videos and images.)
Before the preorder period closed on October 6, 2016, Lily had descended into chaos. The $14 million wasn’t enough to cover the costs of hardware construction, which, according to employees, Lily had outsourced to a Chinese contract manufacturer. The internal struggle, according to two former employees, was both developmental and managerial. After the spectacular presale, Lily began to hire over a dozen people, not including a batch of interns. They leased a hip San Francisco office. “The more money they got, the less they listened to advisors, and the more money they spent,” a former employee told me. “They got millions of dollars and [thought], ‘We are special.’”
From there, Daniel says, it simply was a matter of combining different bits of research Algorithmia already has undertaken or acquired. “We’d done quite a bit of work on image recognition,” Daniel says. “One of our engineers took some algorithms off the shelf, things like image detection, skin color detection, and then put them together.”

Stuart Braithwaite: The Mogwai frontman’s set starts out with what sounds like the first recorded music of all time. It’s not Robert Johnson, but it might be his dad… then things get a bit more lively.
In our help article we stated “Dropbox employees aren’t able to access user files.” That means that we prevent such access via access controls on our backend as well as strict policy prohibitions. That statement didn’t say anything about who holds encryption keys or what mechanisms prevent access to the data. We updated our help article and security overview to be explicit about this. Also, to clarify we’ve never stated we don’t have access to encryption keys. We’ve made quite a few posts in our public forums over the years about this very fact and we are quite open with our community: 1, 2, 3.
