Mays said it is easy to translate almost any task -– like calculating payroll or categorizing plants into taxonomies -– into HyperCard stacks.
Nielsen faults the current White House site for including sections that are not yet working or are labeled as under construction. “They have a site for kids which is nice but it’s completely empty,” Nielsen said. “That’s going to be really disappointing for little kids. It’s much worse than not having anything.”
You can check out popular deals and newest ads, as well as parse ads by category (like Baby, Desktops, or Jewelry) or by store (Best Buy, JCPenney, Sears). You can also search for a specific product. Hint: There were no deals on MacBook Airs for this Black Friday at the time I searched, but there were some bargains on MacBook Pros and iMacs.
“We do not review them first and then take out those names that we don’t think are proper,” she said. “It can sound terrible, but it’s the customer’s choice.”
Justesen, a computer programmer who drives to work in downtown Salt Lake City from the southern suburb of Payson, Utah, dials 5-1-1 on his wireless phone as soon as he gets in his car. A pre-recorded operator then tells him about traffic conditions and provides alternative routes to the city if an accident were to occur.
Beyond its expanded roster, The King of Fighters XIII makes a few changes to the last game’s battle system. The Critical Counter mechanic has been replaced by Hyper Mode. When activated, it creates a blurring visual effect and allows players to use extremely powerful moves. These new Hyper moves are in addition to the Super moves that were featured in XII, which means that players have even more giant attacks at their disposal.
Andrews, who studied human vision as a postgraduate student at Cambridge University, said, “Foveola is based on decades’ worth of research at Cambridge into how people see shapes. So far, machine vision hasn’t taken much notice of what was happening in biology.”
Given that the new version is a 1.0 release, the focus is naturally on stability. But, while the focus may be stability, there are some new features as well, including an optimized 2D graphics engine, better tools for working with vector files, and new ways to create development add-ons to enhance the Processing production environment.
Both sites rely on users to enter data, from plugging in the addresses and hours of existing brewpubs to adding new ones as they crop up. That means the sites are more useful in areas with more craft beer drinkers and can be a bit spotty elsewhere. It also means the more people who use them, the better they’ll get.
Although many big businesses are no longer feeling quite the same threat from startups, Herbold said competition worries are also likely to come up at informal meetings throughout the day.
It’s safe to say Bond producers really don’t want “clean-cut and boring,” but they also might not want whatever else is floating around in Winehouse’s head. So, they said, “No, no, no.”
Franken has even gone so far as to call net neutrality the “First Amendment issue of our time.” Those are tough words, but Franken remains convinced of their truth, even as he supports a controversial plan to censor websites over concerns about piracy and counterfeiting. (That legislation, called the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act or COICA, is currently under consideration.)
Franken carved a few minutes out of his busy schedule to speak with Ars about net neutrality, the ways that elected officials talk about it, and why COICA really isn’t a bad idea — it just needs a few tweaks and a new coat of paint.
The former North Carolina senator has favored video blogs, in which individuals submit questions to his site via video and he responds in the same format.
The meeting with the Gamergate victims was the genesis for another approach. Lucas Dixon, a wide-eyed Scot with a doctorate in machine learning, and product manager CJ Adams wondered: Could an abuse-detecting AI clean up online conversations by detecting toxic language—with all its idioms and ambiguities—as reliably as humans?
While Dean announced his candidacy on Tuesday, two younger political operatives with strong connections to Silicon Valley also have joined the race: Simon Rosenberg of the New Democratic Network and Donnie Fowler, who recently headed political outreach for the high-tech lobby TechNet.
To anchor the FutureCoast narrative in the real world, Eklund and Thacher came up with the idea of chronofacts, physical representations of the future voicemails leaking into our present. They teamed up artist Debbie Palmer with designer and artificer Haley Moore to create the chronofacts. The result of their work is a beautiful object of elegant curves, delicate etchings and crystalline transparency that encapsulates visually the idea of the ethereal cloud of possible futures into which FutureCoast taps.
Reacting to the need for publicity to help thwart terrorism, President Bush on Wednesday announced a new list of 22 “most wanted” terrorists.
SideStep lacks the helpful charts and prediction capabilities of FareCast, and the interface is not as usable as Yahoo FareChase, but it does offer one perk: You can easily adjust your travel plans – eliminating a stopover, changing the dates – and see how it impacts your cost immediately. A FareTracker lets you store a flight plan and monitor the rates, and it has an e-mail notifier to alert you to low fares. SideStep found the lowest fares on just two international flights out of the eight routes we tested, and it also lost points for usability.
As my kids have moved into the upper elementary and middle school grades, the time for a work-free summer has disappeared. While the majority of their friends are off to sports camps, we have worked to get our geeklets into challenging education-focused and leadership programs.
Adam: I only just learned what the word “blog” means. It meant “phlegm” in at least one tongue I can recall.
Konami has already made a few small announcements leading up to the event this morning.

Three Square Market, the River Falls, Wisc. software design company, is the first tech company in the United States to announce it will offer microchip implants to its employees.
Meet Chumby: a wireless gadget that pulls information off the web and puts it on your desktop. Chumby is like a widget box, serving up a constant stream of photos, sports scores and anything else that can be loaded into an RSS feed. There’s been a lot of hype about this thing. After years in development hell and numerous false starts, it’s been hailed as a revolution in internet access and also slammed as a half-baked gimmick. A gimmick it is not. After plugging in the plush device, we found the Chumby to be the perfect desktop companion, perfect for internet radio and watching eBay.
