Access to high voltage charging stations at RV parks is making happy campers out of EV owners.
Until February, Johnson was a Presidential Innovation Fellow, appointed by the White House to help spur tech innovation in government. He spent about a third of his six-month fellowship “trying to figure out the legal way for our project to ask a question,” he wrote in a blog post. “Not writing code, not talking to customers – just filling out the paperwork and seeking approval to put this form on the Internet.”
Never mind that the new dot-museums and dot-coop extensions will be restricted to bona fide museums and cooperatives. SiteLeader will let you pre-register any of the seven new top-level domains (TLDs) for a mere $15.

Space X became the first company to launch a recycled rocket. Here’s what makes the company so cool.
“To me the worst case scenario is nothing happens, nothing changes and this is just the new normal,” Englehardt says. “When we first started talking about session replays people were surprised, but over time that surprise all goes away and this becomes an acceptable risk. I hope that our findings encourage companies to change their practices, not just patching the specific things we point out, but really change the design of the product.”
If your current phone does everything you want it to do, then don’t upgrade. If it’s held together with tape, it’s probably time to replace your phone. Almost all carriers will have Black Friday deals for the new iPhone and Android phones. If your family member is in the market for either of those, we recommend the iPhone 5s, HTC One, and Moto X.
These messages were used to arrange meetings, cash drops, deliveries of laptops and further information exchanges. One of the steganographically hidden messages also directed the conspirators to use radiograms – a decades-old method to pass information, long discredited in spooky circles.
That moment was the culmination of almost three years of work. In the fall of 2012, Miller, a security researcher for Twitter and a former NSA hacker, and Valasek, the director of vehicle security research at the consultancy IOActive, were inspired by the UCSD and University of Washington study to apply for a car-hacking research grant from Darpa. With the resulting $80,000, they bought a Toyota Prius and a Ford Escape. They spent the next year tearing the vehicles apart digitally and physically, mapping out their electronic control units, or ECUs—the computers that run practically every component of a modern car—and learning to speak the CAN network protocol that controls them.
Similarly, using a technology called “information dispersal,” Cleversafe takes massive amounts of data, slices it up into pieces and then sends those slices off to various locations, or “storage nodes.” Although the data might be in four different data centers across the country, it can be accessed in real time from a “private cloud.” And unlike traditional storage methods, there’s no need to make several complete duplicates of the original data, which saves space and money.

“The idea is to answer some of the most pressing questions in the world: What will the White House do next?” said one of the founders, Andrew Geiger, an American programmer living in Paris.
So where exactly did the San Francisco balloons go? After entering outer space at an altitude of 10,000 feet, the two weather balloons followed a similar trajectory, traveling south of San Francisco, past cities including San Mateo and Cupertino.
All of this just means that if Apple is going to stay on top, it needs to extract more value out of existing iPhone lovers—a strategy it has been aggressively pursuing. It has always billed the Apple Watch as something of a spiritual successor to the iPhone: It’s even more accessible, even more personalized, and could take over some of your smartphone’s basic functionality. Plus, it’s now a legitimate health tracker.
Inkspot, acclaimed as one of the best websites for writers, shut down last week as a casualty of severe cutbacks at Xlibris, the digital cooperative press.

Kosmynka: It’s pretty surreal. We’ve worked really hard on this for the last 10 months, and most of the guys on our team are also juggling a full-time job. Our developers are really passionate about working on Gigotron, and you can tell when you use the product.
The collection of amateur astro photos posted on the internet could make up a vast untapped sky survey to rival even professional telescopes. A new study uses photos culled from an online image search to reconstruct the orbit of a comet.
The latest example concerns a Canadian couple. After seeing Feldman’s online site, liver4you.org, the pair wired $70,000 to a New York bank account for Feldman last year. In exchange, the husband was promised he would get a new liver at a hospital in the Philippines.
Rob Corddry (Creator, Executive Producer, “Dr. Blake Downs): I got cast in a movie called The Ten, one of David Wain’s movies and probably his most under-appreciated and least seen.
“It appears that this sort of technique … seems to work well with a progressive mind-set or progressive people,” says ActBlue’s Matt DeBergalis, “because of the two-way nature of true online grass-roots participation…. The users are the ones who choose issues…. It’s a very back-and-forth, multi-participant sort of thing.”
Irwin and co. tested whether we exercise harder when alone, with a virtual partner, or in competition. They had college-aged women exercise alone on stationary bikes, telling them to pedal as long as they could.
The “Public Pledge on Self-discipline for China Internet Industry” has attracted more than 300 signatories since its launch March 16, said a spokeswoman for the Internet Society of China, who identified herself only as Miss Sun.
Splacer is a new startup out of Tel Aviv that wants to be the “Airbnb of event spaces.” Its pitch is simple and familiar: You can rent a space—be it a West Village townhouse, a financial district loft, a storage space in Chinatown—for hours (not days), and do it with efficiency and ease and no location scout.The flipside of that? You can make money off your space, too, and for less commitment than letting a stranger sleep in your bed.
Why would Iraq agree to such a contract? It’s not clear, but Ziad Cattan, the man the United States chose to oversee Iraq’s defense procurement, signed the contract. As the LA Times reported, Cattan, has since been accused of massive corruption, much it involving no-bid contracts for Soviet-era equipment.
But Leticia did log on to his sales website at an Internet cafe to show a day’s worth of sales last week, displaying a log that indicates a sale every four minutes on average.
Australian Lost fan John Klyza says he likes to keep up with news about the show but has no patience for what he describes as full-blown “ruiners.”
So far, the project has produced a handful of useful homebrew prosthetic hacks, and is closing in on a solution that would dramatically improve the functionality of the common hook device.
Maybe an email, or a phone call from Apple. Instead, my first indication that something was “wrong” was a real-life visit from the organization best known for protecting the President of the United States of America.
