Jerome DelVicchio, an accountant for a defunct pet supplies e-commerce site, said that he and other employees were allowed to take their “wonderfully powerful” laptops with them when the company closed.
BlueLinx is now selling the technology to carriers and cell-phone manufacturers and directly to businesses that want to keep cell phones from ringing in meeting rooms and other public areas.
When I first wrote about these guys in 2006, I said they were “a new startup .. hoping to make DNS into a household word and usher in an age where smarter DNS service is offered competitively, like e-mail service or spam filtering today.”
Cook joined Pixar in 1981 when it was part of Lucasfilm and was the primary author of Pixar’s RenderMan software, which creates photo-realistic computer images for animation, effects and design. It has been used in 19 of the last 20 films to win Oscars for visual effects. Cook later started a digital imaging company and headed a software company he sold to Microsoft, before returning to Pixar as vice president of software development. Since 2012, he has been a business consultant to prominent Silicon Valley companies.
The agreement forbids prosecutors from targeting members of the coalition until Sept. 7; a hearing is scheduled for Aug. 8 to determine if the Free Speech Coalition actually has a valid case against the government.
All of the new devices run Windows 10 S, a new variant of Microsoft’s flagship operating system. The new OS only permits users to run apps obtained through Microsoft’s online Windows Store, which the company says makes the devices more secure and easier to manage.
Of course, Sony went and left out that all important “gaming” aspect – and no, pool and bowling don’t count. If they figure out how to take full advantage of integrating the PlayStation 3’s library and a living world, and spend a little less time trying to monetize their experiment, Home (or something like it) could feasibly replace traditional matchmaking services.
As identity theft has grown, so has fear of being victimized through high-tech means. A new study finds some computer users are cutting back on time spent surfing the internet. Some have also stopped buying altogether on the web.
Trend Micro said the ad was being hosted by Hetzner AG, a German provider it claimed “has a colorful track record when it comes to spewing dodgy content, having hosted literally hundreds of malicious URLs.”
One day, we might look back at 2016 and realize it was the year where everybody finally started getting comfortable with the idea of science in the kitchen. Classic kitchen science books like Harold McGee’s On Food and Cooking have been references for years, but that book has always been one you’d pull off a shelf to better understand a recipe you were making and not good bedtime reading. Now, a more-digestible sort of knowledge and theory are being baked right into the cookbook. It’s almost the time of year where it feels like an important cookbook comes out every day. Before that kicks in, it’s a great time to take a look at some year-to-date favorites.
Even so, he says the safest bet would have been to tell Chrysler owners to simply bring their vehicles into a dealership to have their software updated. “The USB route is the cheap way to do it,” Trumpbour says. “But the dealership route probably would have been better, because you wouldn’t have this attack vector.”
The weird divide between the digital and physical is probably most clear in Alec Soth’s project Disappear With Me. The Minneapolis-based photographer is well known for intimate images of Americana captured on a wide format camera. His prints are the type of art you’d blow up and proudly hang on your wall, if you could afford it.
You can easily build playlists from that data, and it will also recommend tracks that you might not have heard, based on what you like. Best of all, it can generate playlists of similar tracks based on whatever’s playing now, which is enormously useful at parties for when you’re not sure what you want to put on next but don’t want to ruin the mood.
It’s the snail racing team that will be the focus of the just announced Turbo F.A.S.T. on Netflix. That’s likely good news for viewers, as that team was a fascinating group of normal snails who nevertheless still managed to do impossible things. (Naturally, given they are led by Samuel L. Jackson.)
Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at the Helsinki-based cybersecurity company F-Secure, called the attack “the biggest ransomware outbreak in history.”
It’s an effort to prevent debilitating injuries like repetitive strain injury (RSI).
Microsoft is also eliminating some text advertisements and other material from its MSN website, claiming that the new site will load up to 50 percent faster and have a cleaner look that is easier to navigate. But the website will still have some ads and contain plenty of links to news, gossip and other Microsoft businesses.
AltspaceVR’s technology isn’t ready for a wide rollout, but the company is moving as fast as it can: it just opened signups for a limited alpha test of its mobile app, and for the rest of the week it’ll be announcing new functions for its mobile and desktop apps. Early among those, Romo promises, will be avatar customization. Not that it’s so bad being a robot—as long as it gets me out of taking an Uber across to town to watch a PowerPoint.
There are still two awkward steps necessary before you can install the extensions. First, you’ll need make sure you’re receiving updates from Chrome’s developer channel. If you haven’t already, download the Chrome Channel Changer and switch channels to “developer.” Then, you’ll need to launch Chrome from the command line adding the
–enable-extensions flag to the end of the application path.
For a more complete solution you’ll need to use an add-on like Ghostery or Do Not Track Plus, both of which are available for most web browsers. The chief drawback to both of these solutions is that you may lose some functionality. To stick with the Facebook example used earlier, if Ghostery is blocking Facebook scripts then you won’t be able to use Like buttons. Fortunately both Ghostery and Do Not Track Plus allow you to customize which sites are blocked. I recommend blocking everything and then when you encounter something that isn’t working, click the Do Not Track Plus icon and edit the blocking options to allow, for example, Facebook so that Like buttons work (or Disqus so that comments work, etc.). That way you remain protected from the vast majority of invisible tracking, but can still enjoy the web services you choose to trust.
WIRED reached out late Monday to other social media companies, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Tumblr, and Snapchat to ask whether NASA had reached out to any of them with offers of Pluto news or images. The only company to immediately respond was Twitter, which said @NASANewHorizons will be live-tweeting this morning using the hashtag #plutoflyby.

“I know I made a mistake trying to order DSL service through those idiots,” he ranted, defending his decision by saying that there were no other high-speed Internet providers in the neighborhood.
