Devotees of Atkins Nutritionals will have to wait a little longer. The company says it will begin offering Atkins 2Go early next year, a carbohydrate guide and weight-loss tracker for cell phones, along with mobile software developer Digital Chocolate. A version for Palm-based PDAs, developed by NoviiMedia, is expected to debut in January.
Within a day, donors had given more than $10,000. The final amount raised was $13,125 from 303 people across the world, mostly donated in sums of $5 or $10, many with notes congratulating Shreateh and deriding Facebook.
The Cleveland Clinic took a more sophisticated approach that included “on-field traumatic neuromechanics injury risk parameters” like angular acceleration, angular velocity, acute subdural hematoma and brain contusion. Angular acceleration (sometimes called rotational acceleration) typically occurs when a player is hit on the side of the head, resulting in rapid turning of the head and neck. Rotational acceleration can be devastating, stretching and even shredding brain tissue.
4. Don’t be afraid to deflect the situation: Scalzi recommends that if you see a friend or coworker in an uncomfortable situation that you “use your friend privileges for good. There have been times where I’ve seen female friends looking trapped by a dude, where I have gone over and said, ‘excuse me, I need to borrow my friend here for just a moment,’ and then gently extricated her to find out if everything was fine. If it is, no harm done and she can go back to her conversation. If it wasn’t then she can use that moment as an escape route, with me backing her up. Likewise there have been times when I have been talking with a female friend and some dude who has been making her uncomfortable comes up; I’ll tell that guy we’re having a private conversation, and that he should move along. This does mean you have to be willing to be seen as a jerk by this guy, but if this guy is making your friend uncomfortable, then that’s probably not going to be a problem.”
True&Co’s new line of lingerie, which includes bras, panties, and loungewear, is based on an entirely new fitting system for bras called TrueSpectrum. Unlike traditional bra sizes, which only account for the size of a woman’s rib cage and the distance between her breasts, TrueSpectrum sizes take into account whether her breasts are full or shallow, high or low, wide-set, or a combination of a few. The bras, themselves, have then been designed to address the most common complaints reported in the quiz. For instance, 62 percent of women complain about “busting out,” particularly in their underarms. So, True&Co designed a bra with a high-cut spandex band to prevent that from happening.
On Wednesday, Steve Jobs introduced lots of new software and some hardware during his keynote speech at Macworld.
That said, even France acknowledges that building these cards from scratch is extraordinarily time-consuming, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does France have to curate dozens of cards per student every week, many of which he creates himself, but he must also make sure that those cards fit that student’s so-called “personalized learning plan”—a set of learning priorities for each student. One student’s learning plan might prioritize math over reading or emphasize time management skills or other similarly squishy concepts that a student needs to master.
Despite not pressing a shutter, Kenny is a photographer. She hunts for subtle beauty lost in the million of images that make up a virtual world. And she isn’t stopping anytime soon. “I always give my pictures ratings 1 out of 10 and I’ve only ever got as far as an 8,” she says. “I haven’t found the ultimate moment. That’s what drives me. Out of billions of images, surely there’s a 10 out there somewhere.” Maybe just around that next corner.
For instance, websites that use Single Sign-On can either automatically log you in if you’re already logged into Facebook elsewhere in your browser, or they can require you to enter your Facebook password every single time you log in. The second scenario is more secure, because hackers would need more than just the user’s access token to get into third-party sites. They’d need passwords, too.
The San Francisco singing group that put together the popular “Here Comes Another Bubble” video that created a copyright controversy has released an updated version.
So they had some tough choices to make: “Is Tron the right selection for 1982?” Dyson writes. “After all, other great arcade games hit the market that year like Joust, Q-bert, Robotron 2084, and Ms. Pac-Man.” The next year, the movie Wargames was released, which like Tron, was a key reflection in pop culture how society was beginning to worry about all these pixelated fantasy worlds. (I wrote about this very issue in a story about Wreck-It Ralph and other Hollywood manifestations of video game terror.) The timeline ends with 2011’s entry: “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim showcases the beauty, majesty, and massiveness of video games as players explore a seemingly endless, beautifully rendered fantasy world.”
The link+commentary style of Delicious feels a little stale compared to lively Snipd. There is more to a web page than its URL, and Snipd lets you zero in on the pieces that are important, then share them.
Over the past week, however, enthusiasts worked to solve these problems, exchanging ideas over IRC and testing new versions of specially tailored system software Semthex created, which is necessary to bypass built-in restrictions on installing the full version of OS X.
