MH: Most companies today are creating and using content to attract prospects and maneuver them into an active buying cycle. Because content so heavily impacts whether a company gets found and known online, having SEO audit tools built into the systems that marketers are using to create and publish the content (let’s look at MA and landing page creation or CMS and blog publishing) is an added benefit. It’s additional reassurance that your content is structured, written, and formatted for optimal searchability. Search engine marketing can be considered a hard skill—the frequent algorithm updates and changes in how content is valued—requiring marketers to stay up to date on the latest SEO updates. So, if an SEO audit tool is built into the technologies they use, they can lean on the system to ensure they are getting the most impact out of their content programs.
Major news sites like CNN.com, MSNBC and Wired.com were freely accessible from the PCs. Google could be reached at first, but the caches were blocked, as was Google News. The BBC’s front page was accessible, but individual stories were not. Anonymizer.com was blocked.

“There is a general softening in phone demand to contend with as well as expectations of a big upgrade, all of which softens the blow of this quarter’s miss,” said James McQuivey, a Forrester Research analyst. “If we see Apple downplaying expectations before the next upgrade cycle, it might mean that the company isn’t confident it will beat those expectations.”
Since the ships will be too large for the Panama Canal, they’ll also be used on the Asia to Europe route. That means these ships aren’t just record-breakers, but also bets from both Maersk and CMA CGM on the growth of trade between the two regions. Like the Explorer Class vessels, the Triple-Es will all be built at Daewoo Shipbuilding in South Korea.
David Brady, a political science professor at Stanford University who has worked as a political consultant, praised the project but does not think it will ultimately affect the opinions of politicians.
So one day in January 2016, Michael drove with his wife to meet Wolfson and Andries at the Pine Street Clinic in San Anselmo, where they rented space. There, water gurgled in a fountain, a bird twittered in a cage, and the smell of Chinese herbs filled the air. Wolfson, a big garrulous man with white, curly hair and a pronounced limp from several back surgeries, asked about Michael’s medical history. As a teen, Michael had had a noncancerous tumor removed from his abdomen. The tumor was acting like an extra adrenal gland, secreting hormones that prevented him from growing and caused him to sweat profusely, often until his clothes were drenched. The surgery was successful, but recovery had been long and difficult, he told Wolfson. He’d been intubated in the intensive care unit for nearly a week.
“They are looking to explore how they can exploit the machine from a mechanical standpoint,” says Jim Barbee, chief of the division. That means physical hacks aimed at the coin hopper or the bill reader. Software vulnerabilities like Kane’s are nearly unheard of. “I’ve been here about 14 years, and in my tenure, none pop into mind other than the one that you’re referring to,” he says. “Possibly one or two others, but it is an extreme rarity”’
Clevert’s injunction even exceeds the terms Referee magazine was originally seeking in its litigation; Referee was only attempting to wrest the existing Right Sports domains that have the word “referee” in them.
The movie premieres at South by Southwest this year, and the filmmakers are busy handing out the highly amusing swag as they paper the walls of the Austin Convention Center with posters. (See the Humboldt County trailer.)
The year-old startup is run by 18-year-old entrepreneurs Kevin Petrovic, Rujul Zaparde, and Shri Ganeshram, none of whom are even old enough to rent their own cars yet. Each decided to forgo college (Petrovic was accepted to Princeton, Zaparde to Harvard, and Ganeshram dropped out of MIT) to work on what they saw as an opportunity to connect people spending money on long-term parking and those paying to rent a car. “The three of us were frustrated that there are cars being purchased by rental car companies for maximum capacity, and at the same time there are car owners leaving their cars empty at lots when they go on vacation,” says Ganeshram.
[The expander is] a silicone shell that is filled slowly over time with saltwater to stretch the skin and make room for your implant. The expander is placed under [the] chest skin at the site of [the] planned reconstructed breast. A small needle is used to fill the expander with sterile saline. The needle is inserted through the skin to a “fill port” located inside the expander. Gradually over time, the overlying tissues expand.
There were also computer-controlled prosthetic limbs, fabulously intricate robot dinosaurs and a FogScreen projection system made from airborne water droplets.
We presented first for our bus. Our demo ran long, which cut into our biz dev guru Bhavin Shah’s time for our company details, but we still covered more business strategy than most groups. Then SpeakerMeter came up and delivered a killer pitch. I was nervous. I didn’t expect to lose, but I didn’t expect to win, either.
Perhaps this is a common geek quality, but I really like being quizzed. (I also like filling out forms, but that’s another post.) As long as the topic isn’t totally foreign to me, I always perk up at the prospect of a mini-test of my knowledge. I’m not even necessarily gunning for the top score – I just like to know how much I know, rated objectively.
The Windows-only download is the product of the Tokyo firm Lunascape, which has apparently been developing this product as Japanese-only release since 2004. This is the first English version of the browser, and it’s available as a free alpha download.
“This argument that everything needs to be kept secret is not viable because the stuff does get out whether companies intend it or not,” he said. “Now two out of the three top companies have leaked their system.
Some commercial application developers, including Microsoft, have slammed open source development, saying that it lacks the necessary controls to define the common programming standards that need to be used across different projects to ensure compatibility.
Sanford said he supported both proposals, particularly the concept of a standard, national notification requirement. Without it, he said, state and local governments could bombard consumers with their own.
This was odd. You’ll remember the new coronavirus, distantly related to SARS, which surfaced last year in a slow and not well-disclosed manner (for the back story, see these posts from last September, October, November and December). Since the initial reveal last year, there has been very little information released about the virus and whatever illness it might be causing. The World Health Organization has been monitoring the gradual accumulation of cases, but there has been almost nothing published since last fall. In fact, though teams from Columbia University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to help investigate the new illness, neither entity has published anything since those trips were made. And at the point at which I opened my inbox this morning, the WHO’s last update on the new virus had been published on March 26.**
“There’s a one-to-one correspondence between a task and the programming environment,” he said. “Even simple databases are more complicated.”
You will need a Google account to get started, but the application is completely online and free. Creating quizzes is one of the most obvious applications but some people are using Breadcrumb to create data center troubleshooting guides or training guides. By the way, kids will enjoy creating applications, too, because there is virtually no learning curve. So, encourage the kids to create their own applications to help them study, quiz their peers, or even invent new uses for the tool.
In the late ’90s, Neil co-founded the first internet service provider in France, Worldnet, and in 2000, he sold the company for $50 million. By then, he had already founded Free, which is now the second-largest ISP in France. Last year, the company launched Free Mobile, which offers unlimited calls, texts and data for just $27 a month, about half the price of incumbent competitors, according to Forbes.
Late last fall, in the gleaming white lobby of Madison Square Garden, uniformed attendants were posted at security stations to make thousands of smartphones stupid. Chris Rock was playing his 10th show in a 12-city international tour, and at every stop, each guest was required to pass through the entryway, confirm that his or her phone was on vibrate or silent, and then hand it over to a security guard who snapped it into a locking gray neoprene pouch—rendering it totally inaccessible. The besuited man ahead of me in line, clearly coming straight from the office, had two cell phones, each of which required its own little bag. The kid behind me groaned that he wouldn’t be able to Snapchat his night. The friend whom I’d come to meet was nowhere to be found, and after slipping my phone into the pouch, I couldn’t text her to ask where she was. Finally, I spotted her near the escalator. “That was weirdly scary,” she said, laughing.
So over the course of one strange week in WIRED’s office, that’s what I set out to do. Here’s how it all went down.
Working with Radiowave.com, MSN Chat Radio allows users to choose from 40 genre-based channels that provide background music for chat sessions.
Such investigations are enormously complicated and frequently point overseas at sophisticated hackers skilled at covering their digital footprints, John Malcolm said.
Advertisers often receive small credits from Google and their other ad-tech vendors when they detect discrepancies, but in this case, for some buyers, the instance of fraud discovered was larger than usual.
Both Pakistan Body Count, run by computer science professor Zeeshan-ul-hassan Usmani, and the Long War Journal, operated by former G.I. Bill Roggio, rely on the same data: local news accounts. But the two sites use startlingly different methodologies to reach their results. Roggio only counts civilian deaths if they’re specifically mentioned in the news stories. Usmani figures that all reported “Taliban” are, in fact, civilians. It’s a questionable assumption, all-but-discounting the possibility of drones hitting home-grown militants. Nevertheless, the site provides a look at how the U.S. drone strikes are perceived in the country where the Hellfire missiles land.
