If anything, the rowers are tired to the point they’re throwing away the wireless gadgets to lessen their load. Tom Mailhot and John Zeigler, the only Americans in the competition, recently tossed a rugged, Palm-sized armband by Melard Technologies that was helping them keep tabs on their heart rates, food consumption, distance traveled, navigation patterns and water temperature. The device weighed two pounds.
The kitty book is reasonably priced, at $12, and might make a nice stocking stuffer. The Norris set is $36 retail but I’ve seen it discounted at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Jobs was joined by the city’s new mayor, Gavin Newsom, who has garnered international headlines for allowing same-sex couples to get hitched at City Hall.
The proof? On Halloween, professional online criminals were found using Trojan-horse software to target, for the first time, computers running Apple’s OS X operating system – just as they have been doing for years on the more ubiquitous flavors of Windows.
“Electronic voting is part of our future. We are proud that the 2000 Democratic National Convention will feature so much cutting-edge technology,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Joe Andrew said in an Internet press briefing.
In August 2016, a year before the email bombing of ProPublica, Krebs woke up on a Saturday morning to discover that his Gmail inbox was overflowing with newsletter subscriptions. Upon investigation, he learned that the attackers had also flooded the inboxes of more than 100 government email addresses around the world. When Krebs wrote about this attack, the companies that specialize in sending bulk email took notice. Email bombs had surfaced occasionally in the past, but the scale of the attack and the publicity on Krebs’s blog prompted a new reckoning.
Visitors to the youth-oriented GMC Granite concept’s new website will undoubtedly notice a black-and-white square positioned above the black-and-white square that is the GMC Granite concept. It’s called a QR code, and GM hopes it will revolutionize the way they advertise automobiles.
For now there are no plans for other geek-themed cakes. But, there’s always the possibility of a special request.
Since this article was initially published on ARGNet, participants have uncovered a great deal of new information about the Snow Town Library over at the Unfiction forums.
(And if you’re going to Denny’s on a Sunday morning, get there before church lets out if you don’t want to wait an hour for a table.)
But what really distinguishes Heid’s manual is the accompanying DVD, in which Heid gives a series of video tutorials.
Bill Joy had a famous cover story in Wired that created a firestorm, because you had a technological leader talking about the dire prospects of technology. His article was based on my previous book, The Age of Spiritual Machines. He and I are often compared. Even though I’m known as an optimist, I’ve always investigated the promise of new technology versus the peril. In that Wired article, Bill Joy focused on the peril.
Nonetheless, I think whoever decided this is stupid. Writers should have the freedom to write how they want, to express it as they feel it should be, or else they shouldn’t be writers. Who wants a writer that doesn’t write what he feels? (Other than huge, monopolistic companies that want a good image, so that nothing else matters. I hope this isn’t one of those businesses, is it?)
It’s always nice when bonkers design concepts become a reality. Like a parking meter vending machine that will “marry” you and your buddies for jokes.
Still, the virtual keyboard would have distinct advantages over the QWERTY thumb keyboards on Palm’s Tungsten line and the Handspring Treo models, which incorporated the mini keyboards into the devices after BlackBerry models became a hit, Baker said.
As you might imagine, that’s also where the trouble starts. The Google Play Store is not perfect, but it has aggressive built-in malware protections. The open internet, meanwhile, is a terrible goblin town.
Anonabox’s creator, August Germar, says that he’s been both dismayed at the vitriol and overwhelmed by the demand for the device. He traces the controversy to his own marketing around the project, in which he claimed to be offering a ready-made consumer device. Instead, he insists his Kickstarter was actually aimed at developers and beta testers who he hoped would try out the Anonabox and work together to help him iron out its issues. “I had thought this would be like push-starting a car,” Germar says. “Instead, it’s been like being handcuffed to a rocket.”
The Pennsylvania company, a holding of the Liberty Media giant that owns Sirius XM and the Atlanta Braves, provides location technology to those soon-to-be-merged carriers, so police, firefighters and medics can know where you’re at in an emergency. In the U.S., it locates over 60 million 911 calls annually. But very quietly, over the last four years, TruePosition has moved into the homeland security business – worldwide.
Kehe: Becca is chewing out Azog.
Whose heart DID grow!
Kehe: Azog: “I won’t be contesting your motion, I’ll be joining it.”
“He’ll sleep at home tonight.”
Crucchiola: This is because Will is stoic.
But also because Becca is a legal genius.
I’m going to say.
Enderle, whose clients include Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and Intel, said going after the business audience makes the most sense now, but “ideally, this would be in a media center.” He expects other businesses to follow RGB into the space.
Google will roll out the New Gmail over the next few days, but if you still have the Old Gmail, you can make the switch manually. We made the change yesterday, and well, we’re not pissed off.
A small telecom believed to be at the center of a historic court battle over government surveillance published its first transparency report on Thursday, noting that it had received 16 government requests for customer data in 2013. But the report may be most significant for what it doesn’t say.
Passbook will collect tickets, cards, boarding passes, and coupon apps all in one place. It will integrate with the iPhone’s location services to give you alerts when you’re near an establishment that you have a card or coupon for, among other things. As described during its WWDC unveiling, Passbook won’t directly process actual payments, but that could change with the addition of NFC.
Shane Anderson, the “list dad” of the once-mighty Mac EvangeList mailing list, is in jail after being charged with two misdemeanors: unauthorized computer access and criminal mischief of the third degree.
