In 2013, Ms. Rometty and other senior managers at IBM chose to forego their annual bonus because of the company’s poor performance.
TV tuner and VCR functions allow the Pavio to automatically record programs. Video is stored as AVI files, and even at the highest quality setting you can see some minor pixilation and jumpiness on the 3.5-inch LCD screen. You must install the included Dr. DiVX software order in order to record video from copy-protected sources (not that I encourage such activity). The Pavio automatically assigns file names to video while it records, and it breaks up longer programs into one-hour chunks.
Markdown isn’t alone in this respect. Django programmers were very excited to get their hands on the EveryBlock source code when it was finally released. However, since the EveryBlock code is, like Markdown, a static download, there isn’t and easy way for the community to contribute.
“I’m sweating, my back is killing me, I’m hunched over and my phone buzzes in my pocket. It’s Evan. It’s a Tweet. It says: ‘Sipping pinot noir after a massage in Napa Valley.’ I thought, ‘Great.’ I actually laughed out loud.

Despite the bad economy, the traffic – and revenues – at job-hunting mega-sites like Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com and HotJobs are healthy. Forrester Research analyst Charlene Li calculates that the three career sites had combined revenues of about $417 million in 2002.

PLM runs on a laptop, connected to a central asset manager, called the Team Center. Engineers can check out parts of the project, work on their problems and assignments, and then check it back in to the main branch. This allows for a lot of concurrent design work. “In the past, engineering teams would be somewhat isolated by discipline,” says Nichols, “The overall leadership recognized that they needed to bring all the groups together.”
The Chinese system allowed the entire domain name, including the .com portion, to be written in Chinese, which they claimed was superior to VeriSign’s system, which leaves the suffix – i.e. .com, .net, and .org – in English. That conflict appears to have been settled by the two parties.

Back in 2001, a few masterminds at Microsoft built an incredibly complex online (and occasionally offline) game to promote the Steven Spielberg movie A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. Hailed as one of the first great alternate reality games, the game used hints on the movie’s teaser poster and trailer to lead players to dozens of Easter egg websites, eventually pulling in millions of players on a hunt to solve a murder mystery. It was brilliant marketing that went on to be mimicked over and over again. However, go to the web site for A.I. now, all there is to find is a static page with a movie poster (above) on the Warner Bros. domain. And it’s not even the one with the clues.
Rewind to May 2010, when Google announced the Street View debacle:
The issue has surfaced in other states as schools increasingly use online learning services and cloud computing.
