Then, the object of the game is to get the other person’s Alka-Seltzer wet. As the tablet reacts to the water, it will start foaming and eventually fall off the string. The last person with an Alka-Seltzer necklace is the winner. As an alternative, you can divide into teams instead of every-person-for-themselves.
Ellenbogen bought Deborah Potter’s portion of Greenway’s assets without knowing if her brother would be amenable to selling. Robert Dozier was older, in declining health, and preferred the regular checks from syndication over rocking the boat. Ellenbogen convinced him, and went through the same process with Jacque Leslie and the estate of Barry Rubin. Leslie was nearly 100 and died less than a month after completing the deal; Rubin’s share was split among numerous family members.
“The bottom line is the evidence indicates that Uber hired Levandowski even though it knew or should have known that he possessed over 14,000 confidential Waymo files,” Alsup wrote. “At least some information from those files, if not the files themselves, has seeped into Uber’s own Lidar development efforts.” Uber was ordered to return all downloaded materials to Waymo by noon on May 31.
Images of “Euro Teen Sluts” appear where Manchester, Iowa’s city government information used to be. And teachers looking for Home Education Magazine at its former online address will find a link to “gang bang models,” but absolutely no helpful tips on home schooling.
An employee of CTU was killed last month when a mortar reportedly struck his trailer inside the Green Zone. Feeney told the Fayetteville Observer the employee, Larry Eugene Young, “was sleeping in his hooch when a mortar hit his trailer with a direct hit … He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
So far, the Japanese have taken a lead in this technology. Japanese electronics maker NEC said it would release a 3-D-enabled notebook computer in Japan next year. Sharp already sells a cell phone that displays 3-D pictures in Japan. A year ago, 100 companies, including Sharp, Sony, Sanyo, Toshiba and the Japanese division of Microsoft, formed a coalition called the 3D Consortium to brainstorm ways to bring 3-D products to market. One goal: making sure the various companies’ products work together.
UC Berkeley’s Center for New Media hopes it has a way to fix that mess in its Opinion Space visualization tool, which provides a planetarium view of users opinions.
Quidsi’s Diapers.com, which launched in 2005, helped prove that consumers would buy household products online if a broad selection was paired with free, fast shipping. By the time of the acquisition in late 2010, however, Amazon had undercut its competitor on diaper prices and launched a service that offered free two-day shipping for new parents for three months or more.
The extra security is handy because, like other recent Japanese phones, the P903i can be used as a credit card or a prepaid cash card.
More than 100 million accounts hacked and over 100 million members’ passwords were leaked. The company responded with a mandatory password reset.
From there, the iPhone’s story is one of evolution, not revolution. Each year, Apple made the phone bigger and faster, refining the product without changing the basic form factor or its most beloved features. It became more popular every time. From the beginning, Apple seemed to know the camera could be a smartphone’s best feature: The iPhone 4, with its selfie camera and HD video recording, was the biggest thing in cameras since Kodak. Ever since, Apple’s cameras have been among the best in their class.
Yet even knowledgeable consumers find it frustrating to set up security. It can involve punching in dozens of characters as the passphrase for each connected device, and navigating screens filled with a dizzying set of acronyms for encryption and authentication.

“On the one hand, I agree that we’ve seen a bit less invective than before, but on the other hand, the entire Switchers campaign is keeping the whole thing on the front burner,” Engst said.
The world’s biggest retailer today announced its plans for Black Friday, which at Walmart this year in fact starts at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day. (For you Canadians that means it’s a Thursday in November.) The marquee deal this year is the 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 for $399 — the same price you’d pay at the Apple store, except Walmart is offering a $75 Walmart gift card with every purchase.

Indiana authorities staked out the trailer the first week of July and collected a piece of trash with the suspect’s DNA on it. Lab tests confirmed that the DNA recovered from the condoms in 2004, and the crime scene in 1988, belonged to the same man: 59-year-old John Dale Miller. Police arrested him July 15th. According to local reports, when the police asked him why they were at his home, Miller replied, “April Tinsley.” On Friday, December 7, Miller pled guilty in the Allen County Courthouse to murder and child molestation, as part of a plea agreement. On December 21, a judge sentenced him to 80 years in prison.
“[Caverly] could have obtained a copy of that and modified it for his own use,” he told Threat Level. “But the ability to dispense cash without recording activity – that was definitely a feature of the East European malware.”
“The data has been available for a long time, but without ours and other websites, what’s reported to the Federal Election Commission would be of minimal use because the FEC doesn’t have the resources to present it in a way that’s useful,” he said.
Hiser and company may have contributed a fair bit to ODF over the years and have done a pretty good job of promoting the format until lately, but in the end they seem to have flown the coop.
A: We have been doing this for seven years, and it’s a function not only of time but also the amount of training data. At this point we’ve had over 215 million messages go through our AI platform, and those messages help us train the system to respond like a person.
“We’re not hoping that it’s all recovered intact,” Cantrell said, “but it sure would be nice.”

After a series of rides, Stoppelenberg was eventually picked up by a group of guys who were driving around looking for him. They all ended up drinking the booze at his new host’s flat before heading off to the pub for the night.
“We realized we were kind of screwed and were going to have to either shut it down or start charging something,” he explained. “It was so easy. I asked the community, which at the time was about 500 people strong, if they were okay with that, and everyone agreed. We worked out the budget, and it came out to around 25 cents a photo, so that’s where we started.”
For instance, a high-end hotel operator might offer guests the chance to pick art they like in their rooms, while a hotel chain might opt for a screen in the lobby.
Macwan’s jaunty acoustic guitar and peppy doo-doo-doo chorus proved a perfect match for tennis player Andy Murray‘s antics in the clip promoting Head tennis rackets, which has been viewed more than a half-million times in the last two weeks. In an e-mail to Wired.com, Macwan says: “I was just pretty amazed that the agency found my song was more interesting and authentic than those of big studios that had weeks to prepare.”
It’s easy to see why consumers would be weary of buying and owning such things. The number of phones, tablets, cameras, and other gadgets is torrential, and we are increasingly inundated with pitches for still more of them on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter. Making sense of it all to make an informed decision can be time-consuming, and there’s always the risk of choosing something that will soon be outdated, even orphaned.

Since joining the dot-com two years ago, she has learned to make shoes and navigate the Internet, while earning enough money to support her five children. Unlike most people in Korogocho, who scrape by on less than $1 a day, Egosangwa, 41, has a job she loves and skills she never imagined.
Of course, the use of computers to aid in scientific research goes back about 75 years, and the method of manually poring over data in search of meaningful patterns originated millennia earlier. But some scientists are arguing that the latest techniques in machine learning and AI represent a fundamentally new way of doing science. One such approach, known as generative modeling, can help identify the most plausible theory among competing explanations for observational data, based solely on the data, and, importantly, without any preprogrammed knowledge of what physical processes might be at work in the system under study. Proponents of generative modeling see it as novel enough to be considered a potential “third way” of learning about the universe.
“That has not been part of our business plan,” says Yolles. “Our mission really is trying to help water utilities and customers save water. In terms of data, privacy and security we do not share personal identifiable information with any third party, period.”
