Apple has already issued Yahoo with an subpoena in an attempt to garner details of the accountholder, which, if Apple is lucky, will reveal the individual’s real name and address.
In many ways, all of the Hubble observations are interesting, but here is a list of some of the standouts in the coming week. A more complete list can be found at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) This Week On HST Website.
If it does come to pass, getting cut off from Twitter might hurt Flipboard the least of all the services listed because it’s also a popular RSS reader. That said, a lot of people count on it to keep up with their Twitter feeds, and losing the micro-blogging site’s API could send users packing. Flipboard CEO Mike McCue left Twitter’s Board of Directors in early August, before Twitter announced the changes to its API.
James Franco is one busy dude. He’s acting, he’s directing art films, writing novels, and racking up a bunch of college degrees. (On the last day of shooting for his new film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Franco went directly from the set to the airport so he could attend orientation for his doctoral program at Yale.) WIRED senior editor Adam Rogers talks to Franco about science fiction, technology in movies, and who the real monster is in Frankenstein.
Still, the room for improvement on mobile isn’t keeping shoppers away from digital storefronts, especially when a good deal hangs in the balance. What’s more, rather than distinguishing the days after Thanksgiving as individual shopping events, consumers are starting to see the first big weekend of the holiday-shopping season as just that – the kickoff to a season of deals.
Macy’s, which operates the namesake Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s department store chains, said in September, it would hire 83,000 temporary workers for the holiday quarter, a 2 percent decline from last year.
The U.S. locks up children at more than six times the rate of all other developed nations. The over 60,000 average daily juvenile lockups, a figure estimated by the Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF), are also disproportionately young people of color. With an average cost of $80,000 per year to lock up a child, the U.S. spends more than $5 billion annually on youth detention.
So, do I have you interested? If I do, let’s go forward together and pursue some projects! You need to start by purchasing an Arduino. This is actually optional. You could just purchase the ATMega328 that is the microcontroller used in the current generation Arduino Uno boards. If you have the electronics skills you can get the schematics for the board — it is open source hardware — and build it up yourself. This open architecture and flexibility is why you will find a number of clones and specialty variants on the Arduino. More on those in a later session. In fact, in a later session we are going to build our own Arduino on a breadboard and even a custom Printed Circuit Board! I started with the Arduino Uno board since it was a gift. Also I hadn’t touched hardware at that level since college and needed a refresher. Here are a couple of my favorite places to shop online for parts that sell the Arduino board.
Zoogi’s makers claim that thousands of users, picked up in beta testing, are betting real money through the program, which was released just last week.
