In one less credible part of the statement, however, Chrysler also claims that “no defect has been found,” and that “[Fiat Chrysler Automobiles] is conducting this campaign out of an abundance of caution.”

Ho was astounded: Had time-clock technology not changed since The Flintstones? “I can’t believe this is still a thing,” he thought. He realized he could quickly cobble together a website that performed the same task, but better: Employees could check in with their phones, and the site would total up the hours automatically. “Don’t buy this time clock,” he told his father. “I’m going to code you one.” Three days later, he had a prototype. His father’s office began using the service and, to Ho’s delight, they loved it. The system was remarkably more efficient than a paper-based time clock.
HP (NYSE:HPQ) had a lot of big news this month. They officially split themselves into two companies dividing the main business by rolling out Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE). And ahead of its anticipated earnings release Tuesday the company announced a line of new ZBook mobile workstations that are “thinner, lighter and more powerful than earlier models,” as well as unveiling new technical innovations for its desktop workstation products.
“The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel — and I have more fat than I can use,” Bittner wrote on his website, lipodiesel.com, which has since been taken down. “Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly, but they get to take part in saving the Earth.”
“I’m not pretending it’s definitive or history,” Goyer explained, but instead he’s writing a great story about known facts and filling in the blanks where blank spaces exist. He said Da Vinci loved codes and secret societies and some of that will be in the show as well.
This is a striking example of inverted topography. In this case, the channel deposits contain coarser material (likely sand/gravel) and therefore are more resistant than the out-of-channel material (likely mud/silt). No data from the planet surface exists for this location but these are reasonable guesses. The cross-cutting relationships of this feature also nicely reveal that the wide meander swing was abandonded for a shorter, more direct route at some point.
Because one flaw has yet to be fixed, he said, users should also turn up security settings on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browsers to the highest levels.
But I still don’t think that explains Swoopo’s addictive appeal. Instead, I think the real appeal of the website is the sheer uncertainty. As an item nears the end of bidding, a big countdown clock appears. At any moment, someone else can come up in and bid on the item, which then resets the clock to twenty seconds. The process repeats and repeats, until the price gets to a point that discourages other bidders. (It’s probably less discouraging to you, since you’ve already sunk $50 in bidding fees.) But here’s the dirty secret of the site: after placing a bid, you’re forced to wait and watch. You have no way of knowing if your bid will win, or if someone else will swoop in and bid on the laptop at the last possible second. In other words, it’s just like a slot machine: you put in a quarter and wait for the wheels to whirr. With swoopo, the random number generator is other people.
HP has plans to produce another round of its TouchPad tablets before the year is out, despite its earlier decision to discontinue its mobile hardware products.
In his mission report, Chevrin reports difficulty in finding suitable outlets to recharge the car’s batteries. Among the fueling stations: a game lodge, a Botswanan casino, and campsite bathrooms in Zambia. Stops were scheduled to spread the word about clean energy in the developing world, where the potential for energy leapfrogging is particularly promising. Other stops were not planned: police officers frequently pulled the car over, wanting a closer look at the curious out-of-place vehicle.
Just before Thanksgiving, the Army posted to its FOIA reading room a large tranche of documents from Chelsea Manning’s court martial, including an 88 megabyte zip file containing the prosecution’s unclassified exhibits in the case. Buried in that file is Exhibit 123, a log of a chat that an Army forensics expert recovered from the unallocated space on Manning’s computer. The chat is between Manning (“dawgnetwork”) and a WikiLeaks contact the Army says is Julian Assange.
Most embarrassing, NBC’s competitor site Yahoo Sports, which has its own dedicated Olympics website, has announced that, for the first three days of the Olympic Games, its Olympics site generated over 8 million unique users, 1.3 million more than NBC’s site received, according to comScore Media Metrix, a company that measures internet use.
Dialect coach Erik Singer analyzes the accents of some of Hollywood’s biggest names. How accurate were they really?
Bell told Wired News last November that he was researching information about Gordon. “I am thinking very strongly of picketing (IRS Agent) Jeff Gordon’s house. I don’t intend to violate any laws when I do that. It’s conceivable that they won’t appreciate my picketing their house,” Bell said.
4:19 pm: We see the combination of software and hardware working together in our PC ecosystem, Ballmer says. OEM partnerships are essential to the reimagination of Windows. The ultimate landing point of the PC experience is through our partnerships with OEMs – HP, Dell, etc. OEMs will deliver more PCs this year: 375 million Windows PCs estimated to ship this year according to IDC.
Things started to get a little wonky here. We had instructions that it would be a 10 minute walk to the “corrals” at the starting line. And that we were to all be in place by 5am. But no one was allowed to start walking towards the corrals until about 4:45am. So picture 20,000 people all walking at once.
