In their mission to build the perfect processor, chip designers basically have two main goals: stellar number-crunching performance, and battery-preserving power efficiency. To reach their performance goals, the chip makers can increase a processor’s clock speed – but this will reduce battery life.
When Rosan outlines his desire to expand EverBlock to include windows and doors, it’s easy to see it becoming a new substrate for construction. That’s not a bad idea. Like all modular systems, EverBlock’s real benefit is in its efficiency. But with just three block versions, there are limitations to what you can build with the blocks. Don’t expect a life-size version of Lego’s architecture series just yet (though how cool would that be).
Hundreds of thousands of computers already have been infected by the fast-spreading MyDoom worm variants. The effectiveness of the infection, especially in harnessing an army of computers to bombard target sites with a flood of data, means copycat viruses likely will be used by hackers and activists, said the top antivirus official at Finland’s F-Secure, a firm that works with various law enforcement agencies on a number of cybercrime investigations.

Flexibility is crucial to a hashtag’s success: A tiny, string of words must both mark individual thoughts and experiences and integrate them to a larger whole.
One of the biggest worries for these luxury companies: The difficulty of segregating their product listings from the rest of the goods sold through the site. That means a $5,000 suit from luxury Italian menswear company Brioni, a subsidiary of Kering, can appear next to a $200 suit from Kenneth Cole.
I still can’t get over the VTA bus driver who tried to confiscate the monthly pass the shelter gave me because I had the gall to wear a suit while looking for work. Obviously, I was a cheater since I didn’t match her preconceptions.
I expected someone who was either disengaged from the issue or a corporate representative who was in some way going to try to continue to sell me on Disney despite my concerns. That is not what I got. The man on the other end of the phone sounded like he actually understood.

The sanctions, which were announced on the Department of Treasury’s website Friday, are the first part of what the government has said will be a “proportional” response to the recent cyber attack against Sony and threats of violence against American movie theaters, which US officials say was supported by the North Korean government. The sanctions will impact three North Korean businesses and government agencies, as well as 10 government officials, who will be prohibited from dealing with the U.S. financial system.
“You’ve got a kid. You’re gonna need money,” Rogers’ stepdad told him. “Get a computer science degree. You were always good with that shit.”Rogers finds a community college an hour outside of Goshen, and baby Zoe arrives just a few weeks before his first class. At night, when he’s not studying, Rogers paces around his living room with her in his arms, listening to the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique. One time he falls asleep with her on the couch, only to wake up in a panic, wondering if he dropped her.

On December 12, the group announced it is splitting into two entities: The Peers Foundation, which still includes former executive director Natalie Foster on its board, and a separate business called Peers. The foundation, which just secured its nonprofit status in September, has yet to appoint a director, and it’s still figuring out an appropriate agenda. Clark has no connection to it.

The encrypted sections include intentional spelling errors and misaligned characters set higher on a line of text than characters around them. But in 2006, Sanborn realized the sculpture contained an inadvertent error, a missing “x” that he mistakenly deleted from the end of a line in section two, a section that was already solved. He discovered the omission while doing a letter-by-letter comparison of the plain text and coded text in preparation for a book about the life of the sculpture.

• I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Not because I don’t dig the idea of a day dedicated to people kissing and telling each other they adore one another: I think that’s wonderful. I just detest a holiday entirely devoted to romantic cliche. That said, romantic cliche pretty much sums up the entirety of Western Civilization, so now wonder “the killjoys of the Karmic universe” are trying to ban it in India. At Beyond the Beyond.
Along with the book, McLaren has launched a year-long weekly-assignment Street Photography Flickr project, where aspiring street photographers can contribute their work.

“I’d even pay iTunes if they’d share the stats with me,” said Saurini, 31, a self-described former stoner who chats about weird news items and plays music on his podcast. “I would love to learn how can I take advantage of their system better so I can get more listeners. They should realize that indie podcasters would pay for that information.”

Last year, the festival provided songs using a shared iTunes playlist. Whenever conference attendees logged on using one of Austin’s wireless hot spots, 600 or so songs appeared in their iTunes jukebox.
9:15 – Ouch. Wireless interference is stopping Miyamoto from showing us how to use the bow and arrow; the pointer is messing up. A rare technical glitch in a Nintendo show. He’s got it working now. Sort of. He shoots an arrow into the ground. “We’ll try a new item,” he says. You can shoot a beetle, then fly around the level as a beetle by tilting the Wii Remote. You can use the beetle to fetch items for you.
