In fact, a user-sourced Doom Queue, properly executed, would be ideal: It would do more than predict The End; it would organize our collective anxieties into a plan of action. And that illusion of control is so very important for the healthy psychology of a free (and frightened) society, even a doomed one. Otherwise, we’re just a bunch of clock-watchers, waiting for the midnight hour.

VANCOUVER — It’s a few hours before the official opening of this year’s TED conference, and architect David Rockwell is showing me around the elaborate new theatre that houses the annual festival of ideas. A combination of Shakespeare’s Globe and the cozy amphitheater at TED’s original site in Monterey, California, it looks like the result of months of hard construction. But only a week ago, it was empty space.
Vahey won’t reveal too many of the book’s secrets now – he says look for some interesting guest interactions in addition to the big Secret Breakfast reveal – but he and the Humphry Slocombe team were willing to offer a preview of sorts. Better than a preview, actually: They created an exclusive ice cream flavor for Wired, dubbed Apple Coded Bacon, that illustrates the type of surprisingly straightforward recipes that will appear in the book. (Apple Coded Bacon won’t be there, but you can get the exclusive recipe below.)
IE’s programming code has a flaw that cannot process certain MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) headers. MIME is a common method of transmitting non-text files by e-mail – it encodes the files and then decodes the file back to its original format, and contains instructions about how to handle the specific file.
In a scene from Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report, fugitive John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is accosted by an interactive video advertisement on a wall: “John Anderton, you could use a Guinness right now.”
Hello, Generation Z. Now that we’ve seen how Millennials turned out, guess what? Our future is in your hands. When it comes to using technology, you have some distinct advantages over the rest of us. You probably learned to use a computer before you could walk, can text faster than you can talk and multitask like a pro juggler.
Vocativ, another new sites hoping to grab the attention of “the young, diverse, social generation,” says it uses data and crawls the deep web to figure out what stories will do well for those readers online, featuring stories like the recent “Most Do-Gooders Are Donut Thieves,” “Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini’s’s Social Media Afterlife,” and “What If Caitlyn Jenner Weren’t So Beautiful?“

“I think Harry Potter and the wider ‘wizarding world’ have literally impacted culture,” she adds. “Many parents and grandparents grew up with Harry Potter. It’s really a cross-generational franchise. And now, we need to get those parents and grandparents back re-engaged in the story.”
I have no idea why one would want to put a cellphone in this particular location, other than to try and sell cellphone arm straps by flashing a bit of ankle.

Congressional Republicans have revamped their health care bill in hopes to satisfy critics. Lawmakers pitched a series of amendments, including an $85 billion fund for tax credits, which would help people aged 50-64 get health insurance and slow down the Medicare expansion freeze. Trump said yesterday at a campaign-style rally in Lousiville, Kentucky, “We’re trying to add it to this bill and if we can’t, we’ll have it right after.”
But there’s a silver lining to this dilemma — if Apple ends up paying the full amount, it canactually earn a 1-for-1 credit on those overseas payments against its U.S. taxes. This means that if Apple is forced to pay the bill, it could repatriate some cash back to the United States while reducing its U.S. tax bill by $14.7 billion.

You see, a few days after the Times’ story ran, commenters on a Jihadist website mused about ways they might be able to beat the
JIN. Some of the online Islamists even turned to my old blog for inspiration, citing potential countermeasures proposed by readers there. “For more information: www.defensetech.org/archives/002170.html,” one of the terrorist-sympathizers wrote. “May Allah bless you,” another answered.
