Imagine if every YouTube contributor had to maintain records on every piece of video, identifying everyone in the frame; now imagine that YouTube needed to maintain another set of those records. Imagine if both parties also had to make those records available in a physical location a certain number of hours a week, with a staff member on-site to assist government researchers at any time.
The Android case is one of three lodged against Google by European antitrust regulators. Last year, the commission fined Google €2.42 billion ($2.7 billion) for abusing its dominance as a search engine to illegally privilege its own comparison shopping service. Google appealed the decision. The commission also is investigating restrictions that Google has placed on websites displaying search ads from Google’s competitors. In July 2016, the commission issued a preliminary conclusion that found Google had abused its dominance in that arena as well.
The company blamed the decline in revenue to a shift among consumers toward higher featured devices and smartwatches.
“That is pure fiction,” defendant Fredrik Neij protested in the intermission. “There are four banner spaces, not 64. They have counted different versions of the same ads.”
Also, there are a subset of users who need IE 6 for legacy corporate intranets and applications, but also need to interact with today’s web. Given that several Google services – like Google Apps and Google Reader – no longer support IE 6, the day is fast approaching where Chrome Frame will be the only option for those still locked into IE 6 who want to use the newest web apps.
Just who’s running TheRealDeal is, as with most Dark Web markets, a mystery. An administrator didn’t immediately respond to WIRED’s requests for an interview, and the site’s creators describe themselves only as experts in information security with a background in zero-day sales. “We consist of 4 partners who have a lot of experience in infosec,” they wrote in an anonymous Q&A with the Dark Web blog DeepDotWeb.
The very design of a teenager’s MySpace page can be shocking to adult eyes. A highly customizable amalgam of blogging, music sharing and social-discovery services, a typical page is a near perfect reflection of the chaos and passion of youth: a music-filled space, rudely splattered with photos and covered in barely-legible prose rendered in font colors that blend together and fade into the background.
The company claims the right to block users from dialing certain phone numbers, at their discretion, even though common carrier rules, the cousin of net neutrality rules that apply to the phone system, require phone companies to connect all calls.
So if your neighbor buys something from Amazon through your site, they don’t pay sales tax on it. Neither does Amazon. But you could be billed for helping to sell it.
I feel that your apps are very true to the spirit of Maria Montessori. Can you tell me about your background in Montessori and why you are so passionate about that teaching style?
Even as talent agencies like William Morris and television networks such as NBC push for more celebrities on websites and better quality programs, many actors and producers balk at Internet projects, saying they have meager revenue potential compared with TV and movies.
Palin sent the following tweet during the mosque near Ground Zero controversy: “Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate”
U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady of Alexandria, Virginia, noted the investigation in a legal flap surrounding three WikiLeaks associates who lost their bid to protect their Twitter records from U.S. investigators. The three had asked the court to unseal documents in their case. In May, O’Grady ordered the documents remain under seal for six months. On Wednesday he renewed that order, based on a government filing.
They compiled the data into a Google Sheet—names, phone numbers, and a donation history. And then they gave Foy’s campaign a quick tutorial on how to use it. “I knew technology is something we could do better,” Smyth says, “but just didn’t know how to do it. I was able to grow my team by 12 people”—Tech for Campaigns volunteers, free of charge—“and am thrilled with the outcome.” As of mid-October, the calls that Foy and her finance director made off of Ko’s list had generated roughly one-sixth of their campaign budget.
But while reports so far have focused on bad actors flooding the FCC with phony content, some of those same techniques also allowed legitimate groups, like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, to tell their members to click a button and send an auto-generated—albeit earnest—comment to the FCC, creating a groundswell of activism among actual humans. The result: A net neutrality comment period that garnered more input from the public than all previous comment periods across all government agencies—combined.
“Many within the medical profession continue to view deafness essentially as a disability and an abnormality and believe that deaf and hard of hearing individuals need to be ‘fixed’ by cochlear implants,” NAD says on its website. Doctors shouldn’t force parents to view deafness as a disease that needs curing, the group says.
Hopefully Ubisoft also learned that dragging players into a bleak futurescape between missions is a perfect way to ruin the otherwise excellent atmosphere created by its Montreal Studio.
In May, LulzSec made news for the the first time with a similar attack against the website of PBS Newshour, in which it posted a false news story announcing that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur had been found “alive and well” in New Zealand. By then the gang had already hacked Sony’s Japanese website, and before that Fox.com, where the group stole and posted 363 employee passwords, the names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of 73,000 people who had signed up for audition information for the Fox talent show The X-Factor.
11:48 AM:“Your report seems to treat all the potential launch options the same. I guess, how did the panel evaluate the crew panel safety aspect of any option other than the Constellation?” Hall asks.
The study’s author, Richard Retting, called the results “frankly quite startling,” adding that “there’s clearly something happening. This is not a one-off.”
Another document, whose author appears to be Erwin Dass, outlines the major to-dos for the transition, including destroying e-mail files, shredding documents and working on the “Impact Paperwork.”
Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the web, is “not a fan” of the arbitrary new top level domains (TLDs) that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is currently offering, he told Wired.co.uk in a press conference at W3C.
“I’m not doing the news under the CNN logo. I’m not using the CNN logo in competition with CNN. I’m just referencing CNN by using something that looks similar to their logo, but which is intentionally and obviously different,” Exley wrote on his website.
