Making music on Linux: MusicMatch, inventor of digital music jukebox, has released a software application for the Linux platform.
So here’s the only significant downside, in my opinion: the price. Each Pajaggle set is $30, which by itself isn’t so bad but it’s a lot more fun when you have at least two sets. To play the four-player Chaos game I enjoyed at PAX would cost $120, which is much more than I’m prepared to spend without significant consideration. The boards are very durable and high-quality, and they’re made in the US, and not overseas. So I get why they cost so much, but it doesn’t mean I like it. I did end up buying two boards while I was at PAX from the friendly guys from Ancient Wonders — while they weren’t able to provide me with a copy for review, Witt convinced them to give me a (very) small discount.
Out of the total pool of applications for three different types of phones, 30 percent chose the standard model, 60 percent chose the video-conferencing model and 10 percent selected the data card model for laptop personal computers.
Former State Senator Rickey Hendon was another early name in the mayoral race. Hendon, a longtime presence in the local and state political scene, resigned his seat in February 2011. On a national level, he’s probably best known for getting into an argument about a vote with Barack Obama, when they both were state senators, that reportedly ended with Obama having “to be physically restrained.”
Then, in June, Microsoft announced plans to buy GitHub, the platform used by millions of developers and companies, including Google and Walmart, to host popular open source projects, for $7.5 billion. Four months later, IBM said it will buy Red Hat, a company that open sources all of its products, for $34 billion, one of the biggest acquisitions in tech history.
While telemarketing companies may be the ones paying for the call, it is the phone line that I pay for that they’re tying up and my time that they’re wasting. Free speech isn’t when it’s costing me.
In October 2016, a year after DJS struck its deal with Accel, the promissory note came due. DJS reportedly was unable to pay. DCM’s David Chao, the remaining venture investor, reportedly stepped in to pay the note, assuming control of their shares — and affording three board seats to DCM. BitTorrent fired its newly impotent co-CEOs. Today, the company’s chief financial officer, Dipak Joshi, is interim CEO. Both Delamar and Johnson have left the company. BitTorrent has shuttered its LA production studio and San Diego office, and laid off a larger number of its staffers. The Discovery Fund that announced grants to artists in August has finally sent an email to all applicants saying the program has been suspended. (“Sorry, Discovery fund has been scrapped out.”)
A week ago, Google effectively lowered the minimum number of households needed for qualification for about one-third of Kansas City’s neighborhoods after complaints from residents. The company said in a blog post that it had overestimated the number of residents in those neighborhoods in part by miscounting vacant lots and abandoned homes. The adjusted count means fewer households now need to pre-register in 73 neighborhoods. But that lower threshold hasn’t helped in many neighborhoods, according to Google’s map, at least not yet.
