The other way it works is related to distance. The documentation states that if the Locator Tag moves further than 30 feet away, the beeping will go off on the Transmitter (what you’re holding). This will also happen if the Locator Tag is turned off. This is just an alert for the parent to look up and take note of where your child is located. The documentation also states that the Transmitter has a range of 150 feet – at any time you can push the button and set off an alarm on the Locator Tag.
“Within 48 hours, our team plastered the same sites with altered versions of the ads that showed the toll al-Qaida attacks have taken on the Yemeni people,” Clinton said, according to the AP. “We can tell our efforts are starting to have an impact because extremists are publicly venting their frustration and asking supporters not to believe everything they read on the internet.”
Let’s go ahead and open a can of worms on a geek-oriented website. For a while now I’ve been toying with my thoughts on intelligent design, where do I really stand? Since I was 16, and madly in love with Cmdr. William Riker of the Starship Enterprise, I have been a believer and advocate of intelligent design. To be precise, of a young Earth, the 7 days of creation kind of intelligent design. I also enjoy looking at the science behind things, the patterns, the developments, the growth. So 14 years later, raising a curious son in America instead of England, and working in the school system, I often find myself asking my 16 year old self some questions. It seems a young man called Aidan Dwyer in New York state has given me another way to get to grips with my own thoughts on the subject, though not necessarily a new one. Using an oak tree as his model, he designeda solar installation based on the Fibonacci sequence, he found this sequence helped the Oak tree achieve it’s growth. He won a 2011 Young Naturalist Award from the American Museum of Natural History. One of my English G+ friends posted this article under the heading “God got there first again,” which got me thinking again.
In an interview on FOX Business’ Varney & Co., Loup Ventures’ Gene Munster said the auto industry will go through a “paradigm shift” in the near future.
While American Memory has been a success, it is only a small step toward developing a larger digital strategy.
While “Pluggers” is still plugging away, nowadays I find funny examples of DIY repair at There, I Fixed It. While the attitude of the site is usually making fun of the supposed fixes, occasionally you come across something that’s pretty brilliant, or at least fairly clever.
It isn’t much, but it took less than 20 minutes to put together. The site’s mixing interface is reminiscent of Apple’s GarageBand or ProTools Lite, which are both designed for beginners. Jamglue is slimmed down even more. When I was finished, I clicked Save, and Jamglue generated an MP3 for me to download, share, post on my website or take anywhere I want.
The esteemed New York Times has prickled the folks at GM by comparing the company to a crack dealer. Op-ed writer Thomas Friedman this week said GM’s plan to pay people who buy one of their larger vehicles the difference between $1.99 and the actual price of gas is “Like a crack dealer looking to keep his addicts on a tight leash…”
After complaining to Interland, the company removed the code from Riseman’s site on Thursday, but it reappeared on Friday, he said. Interland removed it again on Saturday, only to have it appear again on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The disappearing laptop was never explained. But Tuominen and his colleague at F-Secure, Timo Hirvonen, couldn’t let go of the possibility that Vingcard’s locks contained a vulnerability that would let someone slip past a hotel room’s electronically secured bolt. And they’d spend roughly the next decade and a half proving it.

IBM supercomputer Watson squared off Monday in a historic Valentine’s Day encounter against Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in a landmark test of artificial intelligence.
RA: More of a how-to than anything else. It’s pedagogy, essentially. It’s teaching theory and practice. But it’s not one-to-one, it’s not like “when this happens, do this.” It’s more like where you should get yourself mentally and spiritually to do this career.
