“It is likely that people involved in the bombings use the site,” said Aaron Weisburd, director of Internet Haganah, a self-described “counterinsurgency” organization working against pro-terror sites on the web.
Modder jmoorfoot4 is taking submissions for future tweaks to Rockstar’s violent open-world game: “If you want to make a request please visit my blog and post your idea there,” he writes on his website. “Gaming is what it is all about.”
As for China, it remains unclear how much digital intrusion people there will tolerate in the name of efficiency and social cohesion—to say nothing of people in other countries that are tempted by Beijing’s model. Regimes that ask people to trade freedom for stability tend to invite dissent. And Chinese growth is slowing. For the past century, democracies have proven more resilient and successful than dictatorships, even if democracies, particularly in an age of algorithms, have made some stupid decisions along the way.
Kohl’s said it would provide 1,000 square feet of space in the stores that would be manned by Amazon employees selling devices such as Fire tablets and voice-controlled speaker Echo.
“The amount of advertising we need to do has sharply declined in the last 12 months,” he said. “Demand is so high we’re doing a lot more business on techies.com now, with less advertising, and when we do advertise we’re finding our dollar goes a lot further.”
And a boycott, if successful, could potentially have another side effect in that if the movie performs poorly at the box office it may be hard to parse if that’s because LGBT rights advocates stayed home or because it was of a certain flavor of sci-fi that audiences just didn’t go for. It’s the same fear that’s crept up this summer amidst lackluster ticket sales for movies like Pacific Rim: If genre pictures cease performing well, eventually studios might just stop funding them. Then no one wins.

But every reactionary has an equal and opposite … re-reaction? White supremacists have met violent resistance from antifascists—a countermovement of militant leftists. If you only see antifascists going meme-for-meme with self-described “alt-right” trolls, they’re easy to dismiss. But antifascists haven’t only picked off easy targets like Milo Yiannopoulos’ talk at UC Berkeley: They’ve also exposed the in-real-life identities of prominent neo-Nazi podcasters and moved to block white nationalist recruitment even in teensy towns of 6,000 people. “They can’t have a book club meeting without someone kicking down their door,” says James Anderson, a member of anarchist website It’s Going Down’s editorial collective.
With the advent of 5G, Deutsche Telekom may receive offers for T-Mobile from other U.S. companies, such as DISH Network Corp and Comcast Corp. Sprint could also be an acquisition target for other companies, the sources said.
The problem is that this complacency has led to a crappier web. Publishers plaster their sites with ads that automatically play video and audio without your permission. Advertisers collect data about the pages you visit. And criminals sometimes use bad ads to deliver malware.

Napster’s yet-to-be-developed service might be just the place for the largely theoretical Secure Digital Music Initiative to get its test run.
To that effect, Bollier would be better off showing us how the push for increased revenues has harmed consumers on the whole. But he doesn’t do that. Instead, he only shows us how the immediate parties in his case studies are affected by the outcome of each legal challenge. There is little additional research or analysis to show how a particular legal battle has had a chilling effect on other artists, business owners or consumers.

Before that though, I wanted to describe the general setting and show some photographs of my field area. The paper is about a detailed outcrop study of deep-marine stratigraphy at a mountain called Cerro Divisadero in southern Chile.
No, the former Microsoft bigwig is not joining the search engine game. He wants to provide the world’s businesses with the sort of new-age software know-how that Google has long used behind the scenes to run its massive web empire, including not only its search engine but countless other online services. “What we’re trying to do is bring Google to the enterprise,” says Maritz, referring to the large businesses typically served by EMC, a company that made its millions selling big, beefy hardware devices that store online data.
Produced and hosted by Wall Street Journal reporters Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, the conference took the form of a series of live, onstage interviews. The intent of the gag order, Mossberg said, was to help interviewees relax and perhaps loosen their tongues.
Although he didn’t get into specifics, certainly one area that Berners-Lee has championed in the past is HTML 5. Far more than just an extension of HTML 4, HTML 5 seeks to create a web that’s actually a full-fledged application platform – a level playing field where video, sound, images, animations and full interactivity with your computer are all standardized.

Even though John George clearly states on his website that he is not really selling dehydrated water and his listing for it is a joke, some customers have placed orders anyway. View Slideshow The infinite power supply does not exist. But for the past two years, that fact hasn’t stopped people from trying to buy one.

As a 10-year-old in Switzerland, David Colombini entered a contest. He and a bunch of other youngsters released balloons into the sky to see whose would travel the farthest. Colombini won: His floated all the way into neighboring Austria. Today, Colombini is a designer, and it’s hard not to see his latest project as an homage to that childhood memory. It’s a machine that sends digital media into the world attached to a huge biodegradable balloon.
This is a convenient twist on the aquatic ape myth. The traditional version of the story is that early humans waded into shallow bodies of water and adopted an amphibious lifestyle. Over time, hominins became increasingly adapted to life at the water’s edge – AAH proponents claim that our apparent lack of body hair, erect posture, and other aspects of our natural history are all attributable to an aquatic past. One of the movement’s chief advocates, Elaine Morgan, even used the AAH to attack chauvinistic ideas about “Man the Hunter” prevalent during the 1960s and 1970s. Chasing down prey on the savannas didn’t create humanity, she argued, but instead female hominins led the way into safe little pools where infants could cling to the flowing, floating locks of their australopithecine mothers.
The rain is battering away at a conference room window in downtown San Francisco as Peter Yolles, the founder of WaterSmart, tells me how his company is making a business out of convincing people to consume less water.
