“Because the reproduction right is necessarily implicated when a copyrighted work is embodied in a new material object, and because digital music files must be embodied in a new material object following their transfer over the internet, the court determines that the embodiment of a digital music file on a new hard disk is a reproduction within the meaning of the Copyright Act.
I think there could be a Nintendo 3DS software title which does not use the 3D feature at all, and I believe Nintendo will develop such software. Instead, other features of the Nintendo 3DS should be focused on. It might be a communication feature, or other functions (such as the gyro sensor or the motion sensor). The important thing is that each respective software title has its own characteristics, and appeals to the consumers in a way that fits the software. So I am not worried in a way like, “The value of the Nintendo 3DS will decrease when the novelty of 3D wears off.”
__Nulman: __It’s not up to the industry; it’s up to the talent. The industry will always be there to jump on and ride the next big thing … not that there’s anything wrong with that. But if the industry gets too involved too early, it may taint the end product. To me, developing comedic talent is like kids and sports – instead of trying to organize them, give them a proper place to play … then stand on the sidelines and look for the standouts.
Soon after Feiss’ ad debuted on July 17 during Macworld New York, she became the subject of heated online debate about her, um, seemingly fuzzy state of mind. Commentators at sites like Metafilter noted her speech is somewhat slow and slurred, and her eyes appear to be red.
First inform your family how important backup is to the well being of their files. They should already be backing up on a regular basis. If not, get them an external hard drive and set that up. If they have a Mac, just use the built-in Time Machine feature. For Windows users, fire up the Windows Backup wizard for Windows 7 and File History for Windows 8. Both will automatically back up your family’s computer on a regular basis and offer restore capabilities when a hard drive fails.
U.S. District Judge Robert Jones ruled in favor of the abortion-rights groups, handing down an injunction barring the defendants from publishing the posters, the website, or any related material. Kozinski and his fellow judges, Andrew Kleinfeld and William W Schwarzer, reversed the decision and told the district judge to “dissolve the injunction and enter judgment for the defendants on all counts.”
Things happen differently in India. Two hackers accused of defacing the Mumbai cops’ website six months ago, who later claimed to have been beaten during interrogation, have now been offered help finding jobs. By the police.
Cervantes: Oh, we have a lot of things custom made. For example, out sheet-metal cage is custom made for us.
On average, analysts currently expect revenue during the holiday quarter of $74.6 billion, up a whopping 76% sequentially but down 1.7% year over year. Could hot, new Macs be what Apple needs to push total revenue into year-over-year growth for the quarter?
“Since we’re the most technology-dependent nation in the world, the emphasis needs to be on defense, not offense issues and solutions,” Forno said. “However, (computer security) doesn’t sell as many votes as a new carrier, a bomber the Air Force doesn’t need, or a hybrid airframe that has a hard time staying in the air.
Bixby represents a major reboot for S Voice, the voice assistant you probably forgot Samsung already has. Introduced in 2012 with the Galaxy S III, S Voice was largely a “me-too” voice platform that launched the year after Siri. It wasn’t terrible, it just didn’t distinguish itself. But Bixby will (eventually) feature advanced AI that could leapfrog Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri when it comes to speech comprehension, and Samsung’s enormous scale could make it a dominant player in the emerging voice-assistant space.
Even in small ways, Onavo doesn’t seem to prioritize user privacy protection. The company’s website, for example, currently doesn’t have an active SSL certificate, meaning no HTTPS encryption for users browsing the site. “I just don’t get how a service being essentially repackaged by a multibillion dollar tech company could be overlooked like this,” That One Privacy Guy said, noticing the site’s lack of SSL. But then he added, “Of course I’m being facetious, Onavo is obviously not there to fulfill the stated role.”
According to a federal lawsuit Qualcomm filed Wednesday, Apple has also instructed its contractors to withhold those payments and has agreed to indemnify them for damages from any lawsuits. Qualcomm has separate licensing agreements with the contractors. Qualcomm’s lawsuit says those contractors are still paying royalties for non-Apple products.
Electronic Arts temporarily shuttered its online government conspiracy game Majestic.
The best question? “Do you have a holographic version so that if someone looks from a certain angle, the sunroof will look like it’s open?”
I won’t reproduce the list here, but you can see it in my comment on that thread (in case it gets deleted, I’ve reproduced the list here). It includes nearly 70 peer-reviewed papers, five textbooks, and several websites. At first, Anaconda appreciated this list … later he dismissed it as a “laundry list” and was upset that he didn’t have access, which I’ll discuss more below.
“To those customers who tried Prime for the first time and our long time members, thank you for a great Prime Day,” Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime, said in a statement. “Our teams around the world will keep working to add more and more to your membership, so Prime continues to make your life better every day.

That’s not to say that the descent of Hollywood to Down Under hasn’t gone completely unnoticed. Tickets to the wrap party were being offered on the black market for NZ$1,500, about US$660, according to local newspaper reports.
“There is not a lot of demand for 3-D images yet,” said Chris Chinnock, president of Insight Media, a company that conducts market research on video-projection equipment. “So you’ll obviously pay a bit of a premium to get the 3-D effect.”
Ramon Stoppelenburg, a journalism student from Holland, launched Letmestayforaday.com this week and already has dozens of offers from accommodating strangers.
Familiars are creatures that will stay on the table in front of you until you use their effect, and then they get discarded and cycle through the deck until they show up again. You get to draw one familiar card the first time you kill a monster in the dungeon, and that familiar is yours for the rest of the game. The more XP you have, the more powerful abilities your familiar will give you — but you don’t actually spend the XP when you use the ability.
Hi, I’m the Playmobil Princess, and this is my castle. It is also known as set #5142. There are other sets that can be used with my castle, but this is the base set which includes several hundred pieces.
The preliminary total “only provides a glimpse of the magnitude of the problem,” said NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman. “Nobody has a clue how many there really are.”
