Among the losers: teams pulling for top level domains like dot-geo, dot-health, dot-union, dot-web and literally hundreds of others.
It’s those good old days, when ads spoke to us and got lodged in our heads, that are the focus of Doug Pray’s new unrated documentary, Art & Copy.

It wasn’t that long ago that the vast majority of portable videogames were purchased much like console games, on a disc or cartridge for $30-40 each. Smartphones have since thoroughly disrupted that market, giving gamers an array of portable devices that play games with an upfront cost of either 99 cents or nothing at all, with much of that money being funneled directly into developers’ pockets.
The company placed a temporary freeze on issuing over-the-phone password resets following Wired’s story about a particularly devastating social engineering scam. Apple now refers people to its iForgot website to reset passwords. While making users go through online support and answer security questions there fixes the problem, it means that Apple can’t offer effective phone support to anyone legitimately locked out of an AppleID account.

The Suining system was rudimentary, and it briefly sparked a national debate over what criteria should be included in a social credit score. But it provided a testing ground for what could work nationally. And however crude the letter grades were, they were less crude than what they replaced. Social credit in Suining was accompanied by a shift to subtler government messaging.
If files were destroyed by Fax.com employees, they could have been violating the order of the California Superior Court judge overseeing the Kirsch lawsuit. The judge on July 9 ordered Fax.com to preserve all its records. According to one source, the destruction of documents happened in late August, well after the judge’s order.
Once it starts circling the comet’s 4-kilometer nucleus, Rosetta will have about three months to figure out how to gets its cube-shaped, 100-kilogram lander onto the surface. The key is to be gentle. Because the comet has very little gravitational pull, the lander could just “bounce off and disappear” if it comes down too hard, Schwehm said. “The impact will be less than a meter per second. That’s like if you walk fast, and hit a wall.”
“In my opinion, it is the height of irresponsible medicine and irresponsible parenting to make any attempt to use somatic cell nuclear transfer for reproductive purposes at a time when the best scientific minds believe not only that it is unsafe now, but that it may always remain unsafe due to the basic biological processes involved,” said R. Alta Charo, a professor of law and medical ethics at the University of Wisconsin.

“The fact that the National Alliance set up a website, and issued press releases basically stating in a very clear way that they plan on recruiting anti-globalization activists that were participating in the anti-G8 demonstrations, it just seemed more significant than some of the other calls from hate groups and white supremacist groups,” he said.
“Law enforcement is of course doing all their activities pursuant to the constitution and there’s certainly restrictions around that are, but as far intelligence is concerned it’s a little less restrictive. They have more options to get information than the law enforcement does.”
