“We were also told that both candidates and our governor (Jeb Bush) were also watching us to see what was happening,” she said. “And happily they seemed to have gotten through to the site with no problems.”
This is a bad thing in the near term – some good companies will go bankrupt and some good security technologies won’t get deployed – but it’s a good thing in the long run. It demonstrates that the computer industry is maturing: IT is getting complicated and subtle, and users are starting to treat it like infrastructure.
For the Berkeley Art Museum, copyright wasn’t a major obstacle in digitizing its collections, since most of its artworks are already in the public domain.
California was the first state to pass a law requiring companies that keep personal data to disclose when that data is lost or stolen. Since then, many states have followed suit. Now Congress is debating federal legislation that would do the same thing nationwide.
The Donnelly campaign said in an email Monday night that the senator signed over his stock in the company on Aug. 11 for $17,410 and plans to donate the proceeds to 10 different charities across Indiana.
“This was, in fact, crazy bad,” says Core Security systems engineer Bobby Kuzma, echoing Ormandy’s original assessment.
I really like Bicing. Barcelona is a cyclist’s city. It’s one of the quickest ways to get around. If this rolls out properly then it will become practical enough to use every day. At the moment I’m sticking to my own bike, though, as I live on the wrong side of town.
Now two interloper enterprises are trying to bridge the gap themselves and crack the connected-car market, getting first to satisfy consumers who just want to get behind the wheel and enjoy access to the content and information they already get from their mobile devices.
Ninja Tune’s beat-tastic DJ Food & The Amorphous Androgynous release the mind-frying, multicolored splatter vinyl 12-inch The Illectrik Hoax with a download card featuring bonus remixes.
The standards are designed to prevent the kind of design that depends too much on one sense, such as sight, hearing or touch – so that those who are blind, deaf or can’t use their hands will still be able to use IT effectively.

When Amazon.com Inc. announced this month it was searching for a home for a second headquarters, it made it clear the winning city should expect to dole out big incentives.
Ah, the printer. Is there a more evil and infuriating piece of hardware in any home? They jam, they need adjusting even though you haven’t printed anything in months, and ink is apparently a rare substance mined in faraway lands worthy of fetching $20 a drop. It’s no wonder everyone has problems with these horrid beasts. For jamming issues, the best you can do is remind them not to push already printed on paper through the machine. Use new paper that’s been stored flat. Also, if the printer is in a humid environment, unless they print over 500 pages every month, only buy one ream at a time. The moisture in the air warps the paper.
“What I don’t think is right is for these issues to be addressed in a way that undermines the spirit of economic cooperation and inconsistent with well-established principles of tax laws,” Mr. Lew said.
You know who doesn’t get bored or sleepy, miss their family, or demand a salary and benefits? Robots. And the highways on which trucks spend nearly all their time make for the easiest kind of computer-controlled driving. Just stay between the lines, don’t hit the car up ahead, and keep on rolling.

I met Lee again at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. We sat in the lounge overlooking the Han River and ordered coffee. This time I asked him about his cousin. He said he didn’t want to bring shame on his family by talking about it. But when I pointed out that someone using the name of a family member had attacked him in public, Lee finally admitted that he had read the posts and suspected they played a role in igniting the controversy.
It’s an inspirational idea, but most startups fail to live up to it. Crowdfunding exacerbates this problem of false hope, making customer demand appear stronger than it actually is. Investors wowed by buzzy crowdfunding campaigns would do well to remember how the Pebble story ended: In December 2016, the startup shut down, selling its assets to competitor Fitbit.
Researchers from iDefense, who found the new attack software being distributed from a Chinese website, said it was already being used to break into vulnerable computers and implant eavesdropping programs. They said they expect widespread attacks similar to the Blaster infection within days.
“My colleague … who got laid off with me went back to Japan because she thought she lapsed out of status,” said Sashank Narasimhadevara, a software programmer with Cambridge Technology Partners. “She got another job here afterward, and her new company says they will file for her H-1B. But she still has to wait in Japan for three months before she can return and start working.”
Google, with its database of users’ internet searches, could easily de-anonymize a public database of internet purchases, or zero in on searches of medical terms to de-anonymize a public health database. Merchants who maintain detailed customer and purchase information could use their data to partially de-anonymize any large search engine’s data, if it were released in an anonymized form. A data broker holding databases of several companies might be able to de-anonymize most of the records in those databases.
