Not all the setbacks encountered during the miniLab’s development could be laid at Balwani’s feet, however. Some were a consequence of Holmes’s unreasonable demands. For instance, she insisted that the miniLab cartridges remain a certain size but kept wanting to add more assays to them. Khannah didn’t see why the cartridges couldn’t grow by half an inch since consumers wouldn’t see them. Holmes had abandoned her plan of putting the Theranos devices in Walgreens stores and operating them remotely, to avoid problems with the FDA. Instead, blood pricked from patients’ fingers would be couriered to Theranos’s Palo Alto lab and tested there. But she remained stuck on the notion that the miniLab was a consumer device, like an iPhone or an iPad, and that its components needed to look small and pretty. She still nurtured the ambition of putting it in people’s homes someday, as she had promised early investors.

Last week, when bombs first began to drop on Baghdad, hundreds of U.S. and British business, government and municipal Web sites were defaced with anti-war messages, security experts reported. Seemingly within hours, more hawkish hackers went on the offensive against Arab sites.

In an interview on FOX Business Network’s Countdown to the Closing Bell, Greene said he is prepared to tell President Trump that he needs to focus on this tangible economic threat before it turns into a full-blown crisis.
“The Ruckus philosophy is one of direct action, not anonymity,” Gunn said. “We believe in strength in numbers. Putting people on the street has the value of putting faith in the public. That’s why we’re not at all into faceless things like hacktivism. There’s a profound eloquence to having thousands of people in front of the White House that you can never get from a thousand e-mails or people clicking a website.”
But despite the crackdown, billions of copies of copyrighted songs are now changing hands each year on file sharing services. All the while, some of the most fundamental legal questions surrounding the legality of file sharing have gone unanswered. Even the future of the RIAA’s only jury trial victory – against Minnesota mother Jammie Thomas – is in doubt. Some are wondering if the campaign has shaped up as an utter failure.

Opponents of the law are asking the judge to strike down the law because it is “well-intentioned but technologically misguided.” During three days of sometimes heated arguments in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Democracy and Technology, the attorney general’s procedure for identifying and blocking offending sites was attacked.
That changed with the Model 3, the smaller sedan that Tesla had promised for years as the car that would bring electric driving to the masses. It took Tesla a couple of years to work its way through “production hell” and get to a point where it can sell the car for the long-promised $35,000 price point, which it reached just last month. And Tesla is coming off two quarters in which it posted profits—a rare feat for the company.
Such headline calibration is especially important on crowdfunding platforms. The top dozen 2012 campaigns on Indiegogo, for example, included “Let’s Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum” and “Who Gives A Crap – toilet paper that builds toilets.” And Kickstarter’s 2012 hits included headlines that would be at home on a blog for obsessive fans: “Ministry of Supply: The Future of Dress Shirts,” “Penny Arcade Sells Out,” “Oculus Rift: Step Into the Game,” and “To Be Or Not To Be: That Is The Adventure.”
