“The saddest part is they took both of my external drives,” says Humphrey. “They had every single photograph that I’ve taken in the past five months.”
__1958: __New hire Jack Kilby shows his Texas Instruments colleagues a little something he’s built. A very little something: a working integrated circuit on a piece of semiconductor material. The world will soon change.
We need to shift the discussion from “harm” to “suitability.” But ultimately the decision about what’s “suitable” is not up to us — it’s up to parents to make the decision, hopefully an informed one, about which games are OK for their own children to play.
It’s simply inconceivable that Egerstad is the first person to do this sort of eavesdropping; Len Sassaman published a paper on this attack earlier this year. The price you pay for anonymity is exposing your traffic to shady people.
Until now, Casper products have been available exclusively online. The company’s model has largely been credited with disrupting the mattress retail category, giving shoppers an alternative to traditional store-to-store mattress shopping since the brand ships its product in a compact box and gives customers 100 nights to sleep on the mattress with the option to return it for a full refund if needed.
Two narrators speaking from the future, report that Google buys the building in 2023, only to scan, demolish, and then reconstruct the landmark museum to scale in 3D printed concrete, outfitted to support the first virtual museum featuring a massive collection of digitized art works, high-resolution files that Google collected over the years for Art Project. The full script is available on our website along with images of the installation. Four Anonymous Paintings derived from blurred paintings in Art Project’s Metropolitan Museum galleries were included in our installation. The Met will be leasing the Whitney Museum’s Breuer building from 2014 – 2022. The Anonymous Paintings presages the future institutional movement of artworks, and in the scenario described in Art Project 2023, the transition from a public museum to a privatized virtual experience.
Many of these devices were available in the United Kingdom long before they came to the United States, leading me to wonder just what, exactly, Americans are so afraid of. When Leander Kahney wrote about the launch of Purring Kitty in April 2003, the software developer worried that he wasn’t going to be able to offer the product in the United States due to resistance from cell-phone service providers worried about carrying adult products. (And yet, the Yankee Group predicts a billion-dollar market for mobile porn by 2008. Go figure.)
Employees of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy apparently contacted Dash after reading his August 14 blog post naming the federal government as “the most interesting new tech startup of 2009.”
“I can confirm that Arm have been working together with Intel and AMD to address a side-channel analysis method which exploits speculative execution techniques used in certain high-end processors, including some of our Cortex-A processors,” says ARM public relations director Phil Hughes. “This method requires malware running locally and could result in data being accessed from privileged memory.” Hughes notes that ARM’s IoT-focused Cortex-M line is unaffected.
Marcel Vigneron, the memorably unpopular molecular gastronomist from last year’s Top Chef, can add the staff of wd-50 to the long list of people that can’t stand him. The place is agog at the effrontery of Vigneron, since they believe he has brazenly ripped off one of chef Wylie Dufresne’s best-known dishes. By the looks of a feature in the current issue of Wired, Vigneron has created a showpiece dish of a “cyber egg,” the yolk of which is made of carrot-cardamom purée, surrounded by a white of hardened coconut milk. Very interesting, given that almost the exact same dish (minus a garnish of foam and carrot) has been served often at wd-50, is featured on the restaurant’s website, and, we are told by members of the staff, has been eaten by Vigneron at least twice.
“Some customers have been impacted by these performance issues and they should be resolved shortly,” Microsoft spokeswoman Lisa Hill said.
The United States has led the charge for global e-passports because authorities say the chip, which is digitally signed by the issuing country, will help them distinguish between official documents and forged ones. The United States plans to begin issuing e-passports to U.S. citizens beginning in October. Germany has already started issuing the documents.
Indeed, former Wisconsin governor and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson has said he will drop out if he doesn’t perform well. The poll is far from scientific – candidates try to stuff the ballot box by purchasing tickets for their supporters to attend the event, at $35 a pop, and by providing them with food, transportation and entertainment. In addition, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona Sen. John McCain aren’t participating in the process. Neither is unofficial presidential hopeful Fred Thompson – though all these candidates are on the straw poll ballot.
“There were far fewer objectors than people believed and the press believed,” Boni told Wired.com. “It’s just that they were extremely vocal, in large part out of self-interest. If you look at the roster of objectors, they’re competitors of Google, or they’re societies that have their own agendas that don’t align with Google’s.”
One important source of assistance has been the Washington State Attorney General’s office, which, besides defending the constitutionality of the law, has set up a website on how to fight spam.
The case, being heard this week in U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, has drawn close attention from followers of digital rights issues, who view it as a significant test of the legal reach of the controversial Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
NFL coaches and players use the “Surface” tablets on the sidelines to view photos of previous in-game moments and diagram plays as part of an exclusive league-wide partnership with the tech giant. Signed in 2014, the agreement will purportedly cost Microsoft $80 million annually through 2019.
Andreessen: We see this playing out in retail, where ecommerce is becoming a group activity. Long before Ning, actually, in 1999, I invested in a company called Mobshop, which was Reed’s law applied to commerce, through group sales. It didn’t work back then. But 10 years later, I invested in Groupon, because I could see it was the same idea—finding, on the fly, a group of people who want the same product and using their massive numbers to command steep discounts. The Internet lets you aggregate groups in a way that was never previously possible.
It’s a promotion with a purpose. The music is bait to get young people to vote in the November presidential elections.

Last week, Microsoft announced that set-top box chip manufacturers would soon add support for the Windows Media Video 9 Series. On the surface, placing operations at the hardware level helps lower prices and moves the industry closer to its goal of easy interoperability of devices.
The job cuts will be made over the next 12 to 18 months, Infineon (IFX) said, and should help save about 1 billion euros ($880 million).
