All the usual browser tools are included in a Fluid app, including access to the URL bar so you can browse as you normally would, though that will partially defeat the benefits of having a single, separate browser. There’s also a very nice search box that allows you to search within just that application’s domain.
As of the site’s Monday launch, these physical goods are limited to used media because it’s so easy to supply standard listings for those and to ascertain price. Glyde CTO and Excite co-founder Mark Wong-Van Haren managed development of the back-end of the service that “absorb[s] the complexity so users don’t have to.” In addition to helping sellers create listings quickly, Glyde lets them donate a percentage of their revenue to the charity of their choice. As for buyers, while they can’t bid on auctions on Glyde, they don’t have to pay until the product arrives – of particular concern with physical media, which can be scratched.
“Big-box retailers are taking advantage of the shortage to entice customers to their stores,” says David Abrams, who runs the videogame deals site Cheap Ass Gamer. “If they expect to have Wii in stock, they will mention it in their weekly ads.”
Over the last month, as the Phoenix Mars Lander approached and then landed on Mars, it became a fixture on the microblogging website, Twitter.
Side-by-side, applications powered by BREW look no different than those running on Java. But to the companies, naturally, there are big differences.
The camera can also help determine when the user should apply more sunscreen, in the event that it is water, sweat or a towel has removed it.
Sanborn said he’d been thinking about revealing a clue for a long time but couldn’t decide on the right occasion until the 20th anniversary and his birthday coincided in the same month.
With the fate of the Oceanic Six fast approaching, 50 artists salute The Twilight Zone, the show Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams says was a prime influence. Like Lost, Rod Serling’s TV series served up brain-frying conundrums weekly. In an effort to re-channel Twilight Zone‘s time-warped tales of eerie behavior from the 1960s, a Los Angeles gallery has put together the exhibit Another Dimension.
The poor tablet results square with sales figures from market researcher IDC, which has reported tablets falling out of favor for more than a year. In its latest research, IDC said that tablet shipments fell 12% compared to the same quarter last year. Only tablets that mimic laptops — sometimes called detachables — saw growth, but those still represent a small portion of the tablet market.
Financial terms were not disclosed of the deal between the two German companies, which was announced on Tuesday.
The International Air Transportation Association said airlines have conducted risk assessments and noted that other phones have been recalled for battery issues.
Mark Murray must support car pollution then. (“Disposable DVDs go to the Dumps,” May 21, 2003)
That environment is evolving and we have fourth-generation networks on the way. We will get better efficiency out of the fourth generation than we got out of the third and we have two bands of spectrum, AWS and 700 about to come online. But I would say there is a tremendous growing crisis in terms of access to spectrum.
These attacks also leverage the inherent scalability of computer systems. Scamming someone in person takes work. With e-mail, you can try to scam millions of people per hour. And a one-in-a-million success rate might be good enough for a viable criminal enterprise.
Again, Apple operates on its own timetable and doesn’t react – or overreact – to what competitors are doing. If there’s one myth the consumer electronics giant has clearly dispelled, it’s the popular notion of a first mover advantage. Apple is never first to market. Its goal, however, is to be the best. That formula appears to be working.
Square got off the ground by making it easy for anyone to accept credit cards using a small scanner that plugs into the headphone jack of a smartphone. The scanner is free; Square makes money by taking a percentage of each transaction.
At issue is how Dropbox uses encryption, and, more to the point, how it described its system to users.
WASHINGTON – It seemed like such a straightforward example of prosecutorial overeagerness: An Oklahoma “Good Samaritan” was being investigated by the Justice Department for helping a newspaper fix a website security hole. The outcry among the geek community last month began with a story on LinuxFreak.org entitled “Cyber Citizen Lands Felony Charges?” Sites such as Slashdot soon picked up the tale of 24-year-old Brian K. West as evidence of out-of-control, tech-clueless government lawyers, and urged sympathizers to e-mail the U.S. Attorney in charge of the prosecution.
As the attack was taking place, the RIAA site’s database went offline, either due to another attack or – more probably – an RIAA site administrator taking it down as a defensive maneuver.
Groups such as Cyberangels and Pedowatch have picked up the slack by enlisting thousands of volunteers across the globe to scan the Internet for lurid images of children.
Taking preemptive steps such as downloading spam blocker or Caller ID apps can reduce your chances of falling victim to a scam, yet there are still some people who simply report the crime without taking precautions to keep scammers from striking again. If you have never been a victim, take the proper steps to avoid becoming one; and if you have been victimized in the past, learn something from your mistake.
On a recent trip to a watch store in Seth Casteel’s hometown of Los Angeles, a salesperson started making small talk by asking him what he did for a living.
Over the past two months, China has become world’s most enthusiastic Bitcoin market, and the country’s central bank has taken notice. In short, it’s concerned.
In Chimera, the last of the four attacks, the researchers say they exploited not a mere bug, but a backdoor. CTS says it discovered that AMD uses a chipset sold by the Taiwanese firm ASMedia to handle the operation of peripheral devices. The researchers say they had earlier found that ASMedia’s chipset had a function that allowed someone with access to a computer to run their own code on that peripheral chipset, seemingly as a debugging mechanism left in by the developers. That debugging backdoor had apparently been left in not only in ASMedia’s products, but in AMD’s too. As a result, a hacker with administrative privileges on a machine could plant malware in those obscure peripheral chips, potentially using them to read the computer’s memory or network data. And since the backdoor is built into the chip’s hardware design, it may be impossible to fix with a mere software patch.

In probably half the Twitter and LinkedIn profiles I read, users self-identify as leaders, entrepreneurs, investors or CEOs when they really have no such experience. Why? They’re being taught that there’s an equivalence between trying, or even just wanting, and accomplishing.
When you’re Mark Zuckerberg, you can do things a little differently from everyone else. Worried about a pesky construction project next door? Drop $30 million and buy up a four-pack of your neighbor’s homes. Worried that the NSA’s widespread surveillance may undermine everyone’s trust in the internet and torpedo your social networking business? Give the President a call.
