Hewlett-Packard unveils new handheld PC: Hewlett-Packard last week introduced the Jornada 720, its newest addition to the handheld PC family.
But the company is doing more than a TV show. Amazon now sells its own private-label fashion lines; on episode two, it even hawked a white button-down shirt from one of these lines. Even when it’s not selling its own stuff, it’s able to cross-sell from other online stores it owns. (I noticed the blue jumpsuit one of the hosts was wearing was sold by Shopbop, a company Amazon acquired in 2006.)

According to the filing, Equifax will “verify taxpayer identity” and assist in the “ongoing identity verification and validations needs of the [IRS].” The contract is a “sole source order,” meaning the IRS is granting Equifax exclusive rights to provide these services.

At the festival, you get a chance to hear about favorite authors talk about their favorite characters, how books came to be, and what the craft of writing is like. Having spent so much time in a world created by someone else, it can be a little astonishing to see writers in person. Martha Grimes took me by surprise, with her sharp wit and frank discussion of alcohol in her books and personal life. Some authors seem distant, a few are bewildered, but most seem downright exuberant in their love of their craft and the festival that celebrates books.

But Key said he was not asked to approve warrants in this case, nor was he briefed on the GCSB operation beforehand.
“The consumer market wants on-demand video,” he says. “The music revolution has already happened, and video is next…. I think that Usenet and BitTorrent are the same as they always were: Smart people are finding loopholes so they can get what they want. Eventually the companies will have to give in to the pressure.”
Domscheit-Berg: and you’re not even fulfilling your role as a leader right now
If you go to Downtown Disney planning on dinner, it’s best to make reservations ahead of time if you’re there in high season, because drop-in wait times can be long. Of all the restaurants we tried there, the Raglan Road Irish Pub has the best food. Places like Planet Hollywood, T-Rex, and Rainforest Cafe sacrifice food quality for spectacle and high-volume.

There’s no denying, however, that the announcement makes the similarly equipped $400 Xbox 360 package, which launched in the United States last November, look like a steal. And while Sony showed many PS3 game demos that were in an obviously early state, Microsoft’s press conference highlighted plenty of second-generation Xbox 360 games, like the third-person shooter Gears of War, that were polished and looked close to done.
Laura Ruby is the 508 coordinator at Microsoft. She heads a team of 40 people working to improve the accessibility of Microsoft products and to meet the new requirements. While emphasizing that her group was established over a decade ago, Ruby acknowledged that the new law would have a significant – and positive – impact on Microsoft and its competitors.
“508 is going to raise the bar for industry,” she said. “It will allow us to compete with each other in terms of accessibility as we try to win government accounts. This challenges us to do more.”

Georgia’s digital election infrastructure has had numerous vulnerabilities and data exposures while Kemp has been in charge.
