To mark the release of Radiohead’s new record, The King of Limbs, the band is handing out free copies of a custom broadsheet called The Universal Sigh.
The case drew a lot of attention because, as Aleynikov’s defense attorney argued at the time, the improper use of code should have been handled as a civil matter involving a breach of contract instead of a criminal matter.
Palantir sells its technology to police forces on the basis that it breaks down silos, connects databases, and enables sharing between jurisdictions, saving everyone time and resources. The promise, however, comes with one big catch: You don’t get that benefit unless other agencies are also using Palantir.
The airplane’s flight plan took it through cloudy, stormy weather; The New York Times reported that there were lightning strikes along the way, but the foul weather was nothing a modern airliner could not handle. The plane was traveling a busy corridor; six other aircraft were in the area when ground control lost contact with Flight QZ8501, according to data from Flightradar24:
That’s right. Over 700 articles, newspapers all over the world, and newswires fooled by a tabloid blog–and each other.

Megan Gaiser: We make lots of different types of mystery games. Some have more adventure to them and others we try to make them a bit scary. We try to use music that both immerses the player and also adds to the story content. We use scary music at the appropriate times and we’ve found that most of our fans like it.
The quiz, in which users answer questions about what they believe to be the proper roles of government, doesn’t recommend candidates. Instead, users find out how far their positions lie from the mainstream in any of four directions: liberal, conservative, authoritarian and libertarian. In Politopia’s scheme, both Bush and Kerry are fairly moderate.

To verify publishers’ data and traffic reports, the IAB suggested that sites be audited by third parties, such as ABC Interactive. Analysts heartily agreed.
The decision significantly bolsters the digital rights of travelers. It didn’t help Cotterman, though. The court found enough “reasonable suspicion” based on the facts that Cotterman was on a “lookout” list – because he was a convicted sex offender and frequently traveled to Mexico, a known destination for sex tourism. What’s more, adding to reasonable suspicion, under what the court labeled as the “totality of the circumstances,” was the fact that some of the files on one of the laptops were password protected.
Rusty and Lynn got the idea when they visited Awesome Inc, a Lexington tech incubator. They’d driven up from Pikeville, turning onto the Mountain Parkway, cutting down through the shale mountains, and chatting like always. “Windshield time,” Justice calls it.
Although it sounds a bit grim, the book is actually quite a fun, breezy ride. There’s plenty of blood and brain spatter, sure, but the violence tends to be so campy and over the top that it’s impossible to take it seriously. Even the massive death toll around Sarah and David tends to be glossed over – there’s just not a lot of angst here.
A research group at the Georgia Institute of Technology is studying just that, creating what it calls “newsgames” in order to “persuade, inform and titillate.” The goal is to “make information interactive, re-create a historical event, put news content into a puzzle, teach journalism and build a community,” according to the Newsgames website.
To be clear, we do not sanction any manipulation of any situation, it’s not in within Avril’s or Nettwerk’s DNA to do so. Any postings that fans have made on the sites that Avril controls have been immediately taken down.
“We waste a lot of analytic effort talking about the type of weapon, the timing, the tactics. All of that is irrelevant … if you have an Islamic motivation for actions,” Gawthrop said. Even taking down hostile states like Iran is futile, since “there are still internal forces that will seek to exert Islamic rule again.”
On July 20, 2014, a little more than two weeks after the unrest, members of Myanmar’s budding tech scene gathered in a conference room at MICT Park, a badly dated office complex built in Yangon by the junta in a largely unsuccessful attempt to advance the country’s tech prowess.
Women married to men who carry one or two copies of the suspect code were, on average, “less satisfied with their relationship” than were women married to men who didn’t carry this code, Walum said.
A myriad of court decisions seemed to be a boon for online rights, while others clearly were a step backward. The year 2010 saw the rise of the newspaper copyright troll, and judges pushed back on absurd jury verdicts for music file sharing and outdated electronic spying rules.
When you think about what it takes to build a mainstream computing platform, communication is probably the most important use case and we bring a lot of experience to that. Gaming is where VR will initially take off. We’ve done a lot of work there, and the Oculus team is extremely strong. I felt like if we combined those efforts, we could build something really special.
Then what kept happening over and over again is, I’d see these incredible transformations take place, and wonder, “What am I witnessing?”
The projects are part of an overarching shift at the CIA toward cyberespionage. Just last week, CIA director John Brennan issued a memo stating that digital technology must be “at the very center of all our mission endeavors.” Brennan’s memo seemed to suggest that this shift was a reaction to intelligence officers’ dwindling involvement in armed conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Now they have to go back to old-school spying, recruiting agents, getting people to tell you secrets in a peaceful environment,” he wrote. And yet, the Agency’s heightened interest in infiltrating American companies on American soil seems to tell a different story.
According to Schlough, he tries to bring the best of high tech to a traditional ballpark setting. In this Wired News interview, Schlough talked about this latest project, how technology can augment the fan experience and his visions of a biometric future.
Last week, the European Union’s executive arm cheered such efforts, saying that each of the companies had boosted removal of illegal content, including terrorist propaganda, 59% of the time when it was flagged for review, up from a rate of 28% six months ago.
WASHINGTON – A federal plan to stop unwanted telemarketing calls this year with a national “do-not-call” list may be delayed because of opposition from key lawmakers.
Slack, a messaging tool designed for team collaboration, is the working digital world’s latest paramour. Slack is explicitly designed for the office, yet it feels like a friend. It’s business software that you don’t want to quit at the end of the day.
According to David Conklin, a criminologist from the University of Florida, the internet provides one of the most efficient ways for law enforcement officials to get the word out that they need the public’s help.
