Did you know the Vivid girls are also authors? At a bookstore today I saw a novel called “Day of the Dead” by Mercedez something or other … turns out more than one Vivid contract star has a book out. It was shelved in general fiction but it’s obviously an erotic novel.
Conspiracy for Good can best be described as an amalgamation of an alternate reality game, a street theater show, and a social movement. Players have been charged with the task of bringing down Blackwell Briggs, an evil global security firm with a penchant for kidnapping and skullduggery. Players willing to risk attracting Blackwell Briggs’ ire joined up with the Conspiracy for Good, an organization of socially-minded individuals committed to opposing the company’s excess.
Second, the French researchers penetrated just one of the technologies in the SDMI challenge – and the Princeton team was more successful.
“This practice reflects the perils and misuse in technology when consumers are made unknowing victims of Big Brother tactics,” Blumenthal said.
The Kidz Korner Gift Shoppe program was started by two former PTA presidents who sought a “safe” environment for school-aged children to enjoy a holiday shopping experience, still allowing them to surprise their families and friends. The products offered are low-cost and come in a wide variety of price ranges and qualities. The shoppe focuses on tailored products for relatives, such as travel coffee mugs that say “#1 Mom” and “#1 Dad”. Or pendants that say “Grandma” with a heart.
“It would be much cooler if you fire me,” Ellison said, according to an account Benioff gave Fortune. Eventually, Ellison did resign from the Salesforce board, and in the years since, the two have enjoyed the sort of spirited tete-a-tete the Oracle CEO is so famous for.
If you’re anything like me, perhaps you’ve considered that customer service agents are actually behavioral scientists, conducting some massive psychological experiment on you.
As a result, Twitter’s user growth has stalled at about 300 million monthly active users (MAUs) while archrival Facebook continues to pile on users, even with a staggering 1.6 billion MOUs who spend an average of nearly an hour a day on the site.
But it’s time for music apps to grow up and become more than just dumbed-down websites or bad marketing. To become art in their own right.
The three Sherlock movies were broadcast in three successive Sundays by Masterpiece Mystery on PBS stations and the DVDs are available for pre-order at the PBS website. I highly recommend them for any mystery lover and I’m looking forward to the next set of movies, tentatively scheduled for airing in the UK next August. Hopefully, they’ll again be carried on an American station as well. Quickly.
As you can see from the game’s official “unofficial” website, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard lampoons everything from* Duke Nukem* to Doom to Mario Kart within a shooter wrapped in years of faux sequels and spin-offs.

That recovery hints that a vaccine is possible for those diseases—and many others. It’s a matter of creating a trigger that will speed up some processes that already happen in nature.
Because the microphone is tuned specifically to the high frequencies used for migratory bird calls — which are much higher than frequencies used in mate-attracting or territory-marking birdsong — traffic and airplane noise doesn’t register. A single hard drive can hold a season’s recordings.
Wiesner’s latest is Art & Max, the story of two lizards out in the desert. Art — Arthur, actually — is a horned lizard and a serious artist. Max, a collared lizard, is enthusiastic and excited about painting but is a little, well reckless. But what happens when he starts painting is unexpected, hilarious and — because this is David Wiesner we’re talking about — expertly rendered. It’s a short picture book and the only text is the dialogue between Arthur and Max, but my kids have been asking for it repeatedly. (And it was the perfect excuse to pull my other Wiesner books back off the shelf again.)
Another watch face will feature Woody, Jessie and Buzz from “Toy Story,” joining Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Apple is also bringing improvements to playing music and recording fitness activities.
