Another, Search Engine Optimization, claims you will experience an increase in traffic of up to 6,000 percent, while Patrick Gavin promises to “market your website as if it is our own” with a “combination of both on-page optimization and a very well-implemented link-popularity campaign.”
What’s left, then, is a pretty hefty stack of nouns, which you can use to play this official Blurble game, or just whatever else you can think of. As parents of geeky kids, I’m sure you could come up with a whole lot of other uses for the cards, which are kid-friendly.
The antique BBC Micro had a unique moment in the spotlight at NotCon as many of the other presentations involved more ubiquitous technologies.
I have signed up to do this free iPod thing and when I called AOL to cancel its service, the reps not only told me that AOL’s involved with Gratis on this offer, but also that if I wanted my iPod, I would have to keep AOL for 60 days or I wouldn’t get my iPod ever (“Making Free IPods Pay Off,” Aug. 18, 2004). I got the confirmation for it and the trial lasts for 50 days, so I would have to keep the service for at least one month. The AOL guy kept trying to tell me that it was AOL’s policy and that it was stated on the freeipods.com website. I searched everything on the website and I could not find anything about keeping the AOL membership for any length of time past when I was credited for the offer.
School superintendents struck a deal with a local maker of the technology last year to test the system to track attendance and weed out trespassers.
Bureaucratic indifference has marked nearly every aspect of the nation’s homeland security operations, a point best indicated by the FCDA’s evolution: Over the following decades, it migrated regularly between different departments and underwent nearly a dozen name changes and agency affiliations before eventually becoming the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the 1970s. After the 9/11 attacks there was yet another organizational reshuffling, and the agency finally ended up part of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003.
“I think that the interface of [the] iPad could work well for young children because it maps onto how kids already do things in their daily life,” he said. “Sweeping things across the screen fits exactly with how very young children behave and think.”
Assell says only “a handful” will be affected by the Golfsmith bankruptcy and that its partnership with Golfsmith remains “intact.” GolfTEC will continue operating improvement centers in those Golfsmith stores. And Nike’s (NYSE:NKE) exit from making golf clubs was “almost a non-event,” he said.
Google denies playing any role in New America’s decision or threatening to cut off funding. (Although a spokesperson confirmed to WIRED that Schmidt was displeased.) New America said in a statement that it had nothing to do with Lynn’s work; he was terminated over “repeated refusal to adhere to New America’s standards of openness and institutional collegiality,” a sentiment echoed in emails that Slaughter wrote to Lynn, published on New America’s website “in the name of transparency.”
The first video, titled “The Kinect Robot aka Johnny 5 is alive” has the Kinect’s motorized tilt successfully controlled by “Move Up” and “Move Down” buttons in Windows. When it’s hooked up to the Xbox 360, the little black sensor bar sagely nods at your living room to get a full view of its new play area. Now, the coders have control over it in Windows.
But a new algorithm developed at Stanford University could help change this reality, giving computers the power to more reliably interpret language. Called Neural Analysis of Sentiment – or NaSent for short – the algorithm seeks to improve on current methods of written language analysis by drawing inspiration from the human brain.
The Supreme Court in 2010 said the first-sale doctrine did not apply to overseas purchases of copyrighted works that were imported for resale in the United States. The 4-4 ruling meant Costco was liable for copyright infringement for selling foreign-made watches without the manufacturer’s authorization. However, because there was no majority decision, the ruling did not set a nationwide precedent and solely affirmed a lower court’s ruling.
Although the appeals court ultimately disagreed with Alsup’s conclusion that the way you organize a library can’t be copyrighted, it was a pretty good metaphor even if it did paper over a few technical issues.
