Screenplays for two of the last four Best Picture winners (The King’s Speech, Slumdog Millionaire) first appeared on the Black List, and scripts for 2012 movies Looper and Argo showed up Leonard’s tip sheet long before those films went into production. Other titles that benefited from the Black List early-warning system include (500) Days Of Summer, Juno, Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Salt, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The Source Code, The Fighter, The Hangover, The Wrestler, There Will Be Blood, Up in the Air and Zombieland.
The USB device is roughly the size of a pocket knife, and sits directly in front of a computer’s display. Leap Motion says on its site that the technology behind the Leap could be added to cars, medical devices, and lights.
Friedman drove 1,800 miles from his home in Buffalo, New York to the annual Winter Star Party in the Florida Keys, “for the steady skies, warm temperatures and the company of good astronomy friends,” he wrote on his website. “But when I heard that the ISS would transit the sun nearby … I had to give it a try.”
Meanwhile, to keep the spread of the Code Red worms from slowing down its cable Internet network, AT&T is blocking access to port 80 Web servers run by residential customers, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Trump has also been an opponent of the Obama administration’s net neutrality rules barring internet service providers from obstructing or slowing consumer access to web content. Two advisers to his Federal Communications Commission transition team are opponents of the rules, as are the two Republicans on the FCC.
Here, I use “resources” broadly to refer to any manipulable quantities that have a well-defined causal role generally accepted by practitioners, including physical quantities such as mass, energy, charge, and momentum, as well as real-time computational resources like CPU cycles, network bandwidth, memory, disk space, and battery life. “Causal accounts” can use a similarly broad range of explanatory principles governing the involvement of such resources in causal processes. These principles could range from the conservation laws of physics to the scheduling disciplines implemented in operating systems. And note, I say “amenable” because I’m not proposing changing the law to require the inventor to provide a correct causal theory of operation. Instead, one who alleges that a claimed invention fails to meet this test must show that the claim purports to cover multiple resource-specific causal accounts.
But the music industry isn’t comfortable with acknowledging fair use in any specific context where it hasn’t already been established by a court. So the industry remains vague, preserving its ability to claim that ripping songs from CDs is legal simply because the music rights holders have authorized such behavior.
Tesla could have reacted by fixing any one of the bugs to block the attack. Instead, it went further, implementing a more fundamental security feature that will make the next hack of its vehicles more difficult for even sophisticated hackers to pull off.
Android 4.0, better known as Ice Cream Sandwich, was the first version of Android we genuinely loved using. It was the point at which Android finally grew up and became an OS that could truly compete with Apple’s iOS. It offered a level of polish, design and soul that had been absent in Google’s OS up to that point. Android 4.1 and 4.2, aka Jelly Bean, refined the software, making it faster and even easier to use. And, of course Jelly Bean introduced Google Voice Search, which is everything Siri wishes she were, and more.
Perry and Lester are two guys living in an abandoned mall outside of Miami. They’re the sort of guys who, to borrow a phrase from the Queen in Alice in Wonderland, can think up six impossible things before breakfast — and then build them in their workshop out of stuff they’ve found in the junkyard.
