Wired.com: I’d say that I’m looking forward to the day when discs and vinyl disappear in favor of downloads, if only to save on the material waste.
“While February was a very challenging month for J.C. Penney and broader retail, we are pleased with our comp store sales for the combined March and April period, which improved significantly versus February,” he said.
Boomerang looks like a gif, but it’s actually something totally different. Whereas a gif is still images stitched together, a boomerang is made from video footage. The app (for iOS and Android) grabs one second of video then plays it forwards and backwards on a loop for four seconds. This palindromic effect can help create the optical illusion of defying gravity or water being poured backwards, for instance.
Qatar is home to the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East. The military launches operations against ISIS from Al Udeid Air Base, where an estimated 10,000 Americans are deployed. Military officials have said the diplomatic fight won’t impact U.S. missions.
You get the point. Rather than become an unwitting victim—or an all-too-public horror story—just take a wee bit of painter’s tape. If you want to get fancy, Slate recommends something called Washi tape. And if you want to get even fancier, you can pick up a cheap webcam cover pretty much any ol’ place.
Washington state is halting its defense of a landmark law requiring online companies to verify the ages of people posting ads offering “adult services.”
These databases, while much larger, are less organized than frequent flyer records. Unlike the latter, which assign a unique number to each participant, the central reservation system assigns its unique identifier to each trip, making it difficult to accurately track a person’s flight history, since names aren’t unique.
Failing that, you can try to convince the authorities that you don’t have the encryption key. This works better if it’s a zipped archive than the whole disk. You can argue that you’re transporting the files for your boss, or that you forgot the key long ago. Make sure the time stamp on the files matches your claim, though.
*Stop Thief *was released from Parker Brothers in 1979, and it was one of the very first games to feature a handheld digital device called the Crime Scanner that was integral to the game. The premise of the game was simple – players played detectives trying to track and arrest an invisible thief. The game was played on a standard-size game board with two 6d and small plastic figures to represent a player’s position on the board.
The deal includes about 6,500 of Samsung’s printing-related patents, which Mr. Lores said would also help HP expand its business. Around 6,000 Samsung employees will join HP, including about 1,500 engineers, he said.
And it’s a symbol in more ways than one. A name that once stood for crafts handmade by real, live, individual people is now a way of, well, making lots and lots of money. This was the case well before the company filed to go public. But its IPO casts this reality in stark relief. While some people are very upset that Etsy has sold its artisanal soul, their sorrow doesn’t really make a difference to its capitalistic goals.
Last week we reported that some day care facilities associated with Silicon Valley technology companies had vaccination rates below “herd immunity,” the level that confers safety on a population. According to data provided by the California Department of Public Health, six facilities associated with Google, IBM, Cisco, and Pixar fell below both the state average and what health care professionals recommend to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
However, Taubert’s assertion that the long tail does not apply to mobile music was challenged on Friday by Madeleine Milne, managing director of eMusic Europe. “Three quarters of eMusic’s entire four million track catalog sells at least once every year – or, to put it another way, we sell more than 50 percent of our catalog at least once every quarter,” she said.
Oliver built his spy printer from easy-to-buy hardware: A Raspberry Pi minicomputer, a BladeRF software-defined radio, two GSM antennae and of course, a Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1320 printer. He’s also released the code for Stealth Cell Tower on his website.
Before the FCC voted today to adopt new rules that will make it easier for the agency to enforce net neutrality, the agency’s commissioners heard from three people who believe in an open internet: Chad Dickerson, the CEO of Etsy; Veena Sud, the executive Producer of the Netflix-produced serial The Killing; and Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web.
So Yasinsky took a position as the head of research and forensics for a Kiev firm called Information Systems Security Partners. The company was hardly a big name. But Yasinsky turned it into a de facto first responder for victims of Ukraine’s digital siege.
To be fair, AT&T is making an effort to communicate with consumers via its Twitter account, YouTube channel and Facebook page. But clearly the company is glossing over topics that consumers really care about, such as MMS and tethering. Having all these outlets of communication is the perfect opportunity for AT&T to improve its customer relations, so why not start with this topic?
