Ever wished you could definitively prove how adept your hand-eye coordination remains even after slugging copious amounts of sub-par swill? The National Beer Pong League’s new ranking system has got you covered.
The new Dell Axim X5 handhelds, which will soon go on sale for under $300 after a $50 rebate, aim to take market share from devices made by competitors HP (HPQ), Toshiba and Casio that run Microsoft (MSFT) software.
“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”
You know who I’m not going to miss at all? Mitch McConnell. That guy is the king of the fucking pansy-shitters. 07:50:48 AM
“The code is set up so we can very nicely push in the malicious stuff,” says Fernandes. “But you’d have to explicitly be looking for that.” As evidence that SmartThings owners would actually install their malware, they performed a survey of 22 people using SmartThings devices and found that 77 percent of them would be interested in that battery monitor app.
Spore, starting with the Creature Creator, blurs the line between social networking and videogames. Strange bedfellows, sure, but an exciting prospect, particularly for a game whose content will spawn primarily from a rabid user-base. (There will be official offerings from Maxis Software, of course.) Every player (upon registering their game) is given their own page on the Spore community site, with RSS feeds tracking events in the game, their creatures’ ratings based on community votes (Trunk: hot or not?) and other in-game news.
Gisin and colleagues thought this photon-cloning method would be perfect for their human quantum-detector experiments. All they would have to do is make a few thousand copies of one member of the original entangled photon pair, and send all those copies to the human observer.
Canadian court documents linked to the prosecution of a Montreal-based crime network revealed in a Vice investigation this week that Canadian police have an encryption key that can unlock millions of Blackberry devices. Law enforcement kept this power a secret for years. The documents came to light after a two-year trial revealed the Canadian police used the global encryption key to surveil communications intercepted from cell site simulators. Exactly how Blackberry has worked with Canadian law enforcement to provide the decryption key remains unknown, but what is clear is that the mobile communications company has deeply collaborated with law enforcement to help read customer communications in ways unbeknownst to Blackberry users.
APBNews won numerous journalistic awards for its stories but still struggled to get revenues. Salon, a respected but money-losing online magazine, has laid off several staff and is slashing its expenses.
“In the current election system, the voter is a product to be sold to the corporations. But they’re being sold through this convoluted method of advertising, consultants, (and) traveling. Voteauction is making a more direct line – the old cutting-out-the-middle-man approach.”
Of course, it was a silly thing for Forbes to do. The magazine, even with the lower numbers, still remains second to People in total ad pages, although barely ahead of Fortune and The New York Times Sunday Magazine.
Instead, academic publishers started to consolidate. They solidified their grip on the rights to prestigious journals, allowing them to charge for access and exclude the majority of the world from reading research publications—all while extracting billions in dollars of subscription fees from university libraries and corporations. This meant that some publishers, such as Elsevier, the science, technology, and medicine-focused branch of the RELX Group publishing conglomerate, are able today to extract huge margins—36.7 percent in 2017 in Elsevier’s case, more profitable than Apple, Google/Alphabet, or Microsoft that same year.

WN: Who are the most exciting, inspiring people you’re paying attention to these days?
“Such news have some bearing on the Nasdaq, but Rediff has been built on long-term investors,” said a high-level Rediff employee speaking under condition of anonymity. “We are in hyper growth right now and such cases only have irritation value.”
Notzold smiled as he told the story of projecting one night beside a public-housing project in the United States. A small boy looked on thoughtfully, then beamed up at him and said: “OK mister, now I get it: I can make the windows speak!”
Its success also attracted the attention of Google, which shelled out $1.65 billion to acquire YouTube in late 2006, less than two years after the company was founded.
This isn’t a deep game, to be sure, but it’s undeniably fun. You can play it with just about any age, and it’s especially fun with a lot of people. The only thing I would have changed is that there are a few of the symbols that are words: “Stop,” “Art,” and “OK.” They’re all different colors but it’s the only thing in the game that sort of requires reading ability, and it would have been nice to have those replaced by other drawings.
SnapChat is an app that allows users to send photos that, once open, self-destruct within a pre-determined amount of time ranging from 1-10 seconds. On Tuesday, SnapchatDB.info announced it has stored and made available to download the usernames and phone numbers 4.6 million Snapchat accounts. SnapchatDB.info told FOXBusiness.com in an e-mail statement that the motivation of the hack was to raise public awareness about Snapchat’s lack of security. “It is understandable that tech startups have limited resources but security and privacy should not be a secondary goal. Security matters as much as user experience does.”
YouTube can’t relax, though. Not yet, not ever. New challengers—everyone from Facebook and Snapchat to Vimeo and Vessel—are eyeing its talent and ready to poach its viewers. Absolutely everyone is coming for its advertisers, who have untold billions to spend and serious demands about where it goes. YouTube needs to prove it can turn impossibly huge view counts into actual, real profit.
He gathered a group of similarly beleaguered scientists on the Berkeley campus this week in an attempt to gain public support in their fight against corporate influence over science.
Matador did, however, upload some videos of Chan Marshall working on Jukebox
to YouTube. What a strange world, when it’s easier to watch a video ofa song being made than to find a sample MP3 from the album, especiallybecause Matador’s MP3 policy used to be so lenient. I guess thedifferences with this approach are that you can’t load the YouTubeversions onto most MP3 players (aside from the iPhone and iPodTouch)… and that Google, not Matador, pays for the bandwidth.
Many of the Points in the US have already been visited, and of course the culture is very familiar to me and those of you living there. But despite the absence of some of the more stressful elements (which I quite enjoy) of journeys to unvisited Points, Confluence Hunting is alive and well in the US. Turn on your GPS and check out the Points closest to you. According to Confluence.Org, you’re always within 49 miles of a Point.

Given this growing online data collection, privacy groups, government regulators, and others have argued that users should have a choice. If people don’t want to be tracked across multiple sites, then they should be able to indicate that choice through their browser settings: “Do Not Track.”
Banks with assets of $50 billion or more must satisfy the new rules that will be finalized in the months ahead, according to a statement by the Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
You can already buy prepaid gift cards using bitcoin thanks to a company called Gyft. But Gyft’s cards only work with specific merchants–Amazon or Target or Dell, for example. That’s because the regulations covering cards such as MasterCard or Visa (known as “open loop” cards in the payment industry) are much more onerous than the gift card rules, says Vinny Lingham, Gyft’s CEO.
That level of teacher communication was the biggest difference A. J. Rando noticed when his daughter, Olivia, a middle school student and a black belt in karate, enrolled in VLACS to accommodate training and competition.
Born helpless, nude and unable to provide for himself, Lore Sjöberg eventually overcame these handicaps to embed his name in everything he owns, even fresh produce.
