In this week’s State of the Union speech, President Obama acknowledged the United States’ greatest hope for emerging successfully from the “Great Recession” when he said:
The rapid rise of the Android 2.1 indicates that the fractured nature of the platform–a major concern among Android developers and users–may no longer be an issue by the end of the year. In the 16 months since the first Android phone hit the market, Google has made four major upgrades to the operating system.

What you have to do to earn a stickers varies somewhat, from very simple tasks – check in to say you’re reading that particular book for example – to more complex things, like you’ll need to check in with five separate O’Reilly hacker books before you get that sticker. Once you earn a sticker for something, you increase the level of interaction with other users who are fans of that particular movie, book or TV show. Adaptive Blue tells us there are around 500,000 people using its Glue social plug-ins and apps.
Continuing the trend of “Surprise!” album releases that his band Radiohead pretty much started seven years ago, Thom Yorke just up and released an album on BitTorrent today. It’s called Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes and it’ll cost you $6.
F.lux was founded almost by accident. In 2008 Michael and Lorna Herf had recently left their jobs working on Google’s photo management tool Picasa, and were living in Santa Monica. Lorna is a painter and used the upstairs loft in their apartment for her studio, where she would often work through the night. She quickly ran into a problem: Even with lamps and lightbulbs, the lack of sunlight obfuscated the hues of her paints, messing up the outcome of her work. “All the colors came out completely wrong, and this thing she thought to be, say, orange would be bright pink,” Herf says of his wife’s dilemma.
Step 5: Twitter will provide you with some accounts you can follow based on your interests. Pick out a few you like. If you see them to start you feed off on the right foot.
In 2008, Google hired Marquis-Boire in its Zurich, Switzerland office. He was assigned to cybersecurity incident response at the company not long before the biggest known security crisis in its history: the so-called Aurora hacking operation, in which Chinese hackers breached Google’s network for months and stole information that included source code from its servers. Marquis-Boire became an early member of the core team of network defenders assigned to battle the state-sponsored spies trying to eavesdrop on Google’s users. “He has quite a hacker mind,” says Heather Adkins, Google’s manager of information security, “Of everyone I’ve ever hired at Google, I’d put him in the top one percent of technical capability.”

Picture me at this moment grabbing up those fluorite crystals in search of a positive energy that would help me find a polite answer to that statement rather than a sarcastic rejoinder that water is, in fact, nothing but chemicals. That it even has its very own chemical formula of H2O. That such formula tells us that, at a minimum, when we drink water were are drinking the naturally occurring chemicals hydrogen and oxygen.
Teachers flunk mobile phone company: Teachers in Britain have expressed outrage at a mobile phone retailer that decided to hire school children as sales staff.
Usmani says his site gets about 15,000 visitors a week. His tallies of innocent deaths are wildly different from the estimates produced by the Long War Journal and the New America Foundation. But Usmani’s dark analysis is similar to other Pakistani reports. According to The News of Pakistan, “US drones killed 123 civilians [and] three al-Qaeda men in January.” Dawn’s account is even more morbid: “For each Al Qaeda and Taliban terrorist killed by US drones, 140 innocent Pakistanis also had to die.”
Reynolds agreed. “Everybody concedes that there’s a limited understanding of (active sonar’s) impact.”
When is it going live? Q1, 2018 is the plan for the public launch. Right now, we have a few beta customers giving us great feedback to help us build the right product. The beta is private for now but we will open it up soon. It’s been really helpful to be in Lisbon as I’ve met some great people that helped me with this project. I’ve been working out of Second Home, a co-working space that feels much more like a startup than a desk-renting space. Every Friday there’s a mingling event so you can find out what other people are working on; we even have a live DJ! Both this, and Futurospective, are tech ideas which improve people’s lives, in some way.
But what if Gutenberg didn’t actually invent the revolutionary technique of mass-producing words as we know it today?
Working with IDEO meant the district’s was able to conduct what was essentially a massive social experiment in real time with real kids. It led to a few breakthroughs.
TIRED If you aren’t a geek, gamer or nerd, you may be hard pressed to get any more than half of what Beefy is referencing throughout the album.
Once upon a time, people used analog desks and did Jazzercise and lived in caves. These were dark times.
Knowles said despite Kubrick’s involvement, he is surprised that Spielberg has been able to keep quiet about the project.
Regardless, marketing firms and perhaps a few content owners looking to experiment outside the iTunes Music Store are going to be Navio’s customers, rather than consumers. Most iTunes users don’t even know they have a DRM problem, and those who do know tend to stay away from DRM completely, even varieties that provide a degree of flexibility across various closed systems.
“You can think of a future where there’s a Google map,” he said, “and with user’s permission, you could go into the houses and buildings and then have a full 3-D view of the world.” This only seems a little creepy when compared to the possibility that we may be helping some hidden artificial intelligence prepare for the Rise of the Machines by creating a Matrix-esque digital library.
Staffup Weekend put the lie to Stein’s pronouncement. As Nicholson later wrote me, “The fact that people stayed for 48 hours to work on something put them head and shoulders above the thousands of applications we receive, because the participants are people who show up and see things through.”

By inserting a drum into the well tight enough to create pressure, the composted methane gas is forced through an underground pipe into the creators’ home, where the residents use the gas for cooking and heating.
That workflow might turn off novice users and would make developing with the Twitter API a bit more complex (which could mean fewer cool third-party Twitter tools), but just like signing into your bank website is more difficult than it used to be, the tradeoff of gaining more control of which apps can access your account seems worth it in this case.
Whenever you listen you must be prepared to act! Pratt explains that “closing the loop” on any listening activity is critical. When genuine concerns are raised be ready to respond and act. Even if it doesn’t seem meaningful to you as a manager or executive, jeans day, uniform requirements, and parking lot challenges may matter to your folks out there on the front lines.
Given the fact that the junta’s stronghold depends upon their control over the flow of information, the advent of the Internet posed a serious and immediate cause for concern.
The process begins when a document such as a traffic ticket is scanned into one of the court system’s two scanners and then entered into a database.
Pictures of the 22 “most wanted” terrorists, including Osama bin Laden, are posted on Fox’s America’s Most Wanted website. Bush went to the FBI on Wednesday to publicize the list.
Today’s Traktor updates are just part of a giant refresh NI is making to its many hardware and software tools. The company is updating its music creation hardware; the Komplete Kontrol 88-key keyboard gets a refresh today, and NI is debuting new entry-level Maschine and Kontrol hardware controllers.

The company’s web services—Sounds.com, The Loop Loft, and Metapop—are also getting updates.
“Unfortunately, a lot of people believe this scenario could take place because of the perceptions of the government corruption in Africa,” said John Kane, research manager at the National White Collar Crime Center, which runs the complaint center with the FBI.
Replacing a dial on a vibrator with a pressure switch or a slider bar makes it more accessible to folks who lack fine motor control. You can glue a stick onto a slider to help extend a person’s reach. For those who experience tremors or seizures, a butterfly vibrator – the kind held onto the body with straps – eliminates the need to hold the device in place.
“You know, Julian referred to me once as his ‘adversary,’ so it might make sense in his little world of games to do something like that,” Domscheit-Berg says. “It’s a new low.”
