“Company blogs and websites are missing their own best stuff,” Berry says. “The people who actually care about you are the ones who come to your site.”
It features a monochrome, backlit LCD measuring 4.9 x 3.9 inches, capable of providing resolutions of 480 x 320 pixels.
He’s up to his old tricks again with Milo and Kate. Last year, the creator of Fable told Chris Baker that this game would be a “significant scientific achievement” that would end up on the cover of Wired magazine. And now, here it is: It’s a virtual-human simulator, like *Nintendogs *or Seaman but with a young boy to interact with rather than an animal or quasi-human fish.
“Given his previous failings as chief information officer, I find it unfathomable that you would invest him [Charbo] with this authority,” he wrote. “This decision raises concerns about the seriousness of the administration’s initiative.”
The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company quickly lost ground in the smartphone and tablet markets, thanks in part to a $1.2 billion acquisition of phone maker Palm that fell flat. H-P also struggled to lift PC sales as demand lagged.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said on Monday it is proposing a $350,000 civil fine against Amazon.com Inc for shipping a product that allegedly violated hazardous materials regulations and injured several UPS workers who handled the package.
I’ve attended this convention for seven years now, and every year have a new experience. This year my focus was the Artist’s Alley because my daughter and I were selling Teapunk, our newest venture. We had lovely neighbors, and one of my favorite memories of the weekend was convincing them to don glow sticks and come raving with us on Saturday. They had way more fun then they expected. I suspect I was the oldest person at the rave, but I look forward to dancing like a fool every year and had exactly as much fun as I was hoping. (Those last two sentences remind me of something Bilbo Baggins would say.)
GeekDad: What sorts of TV shows, movies and books held your interest before comic book novelties became your obsession of choice?
Still, after the Prime Day incident, Jacobs says he took a closer look at the pricing of his products since he started selling with Amazon LaunchPad in November of 2015 and he now believes the company also does demand-based pricing, also known as customer-based pricing, meaning they bump up the price of a product as soon as they start seeing it in high demand.
When that news came out, Anonymous turned on BART with a frenzy. In the climate of the Arab Spring, the move reminded many anons of the deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak, who had shut off the Internet in order to suppress dissent. An IRC channel called #opbart was formed immediately, and it quickly grew to more than 400 people, suggesting and debating ways to retaliate against BART. On YouTube (a popular medium for Anonymous manifestos), announcements of various anti-BART ops began pouring onto Anonymous accounts; anti-BART anon handles appeared on Twitter. Subgroups formed to weigh the various options: hacking, D0xing, denial-of-service attacks, real-world protests. And over the next few weeks, nearly every tactic discussed would be attempted against BART. Over the month, anon hackers attacked the ill-defended BART and myBART websites and did data dumps; in a low moment, they posted stolen nude pictures of BART’s spokesman, Linton Johnson, who had bragged that the cell phone shutdown was his idea. Street protests snarled traffic on and off for weeks.
Going after Uber and similar companies over less-visible privacy practices will be harder than making the case that led to Tuesday’s settlement, however. Consent decrees are a safe way to make a case stick, Hartzog explains. Given the FTC’s limited powers, it will be harder to convince a judge that a harsher penalty is warranted.
Powell died after four hours of exposure to 107-degree temperatures. The prison’s own guidelines instruct that prisoners should not be held outside for more than two hours. Powell pleaded to be taken back inside, but was ignored. The autopsy report showed Powell suffered first and second-degree burns, and had a core body temperature of 108 degrees when she died.
“For us, this was a clear fair-use parody from day one,” Gregg Spiridellis said. “And even … how we conceived the idea was to say Woody Guthrie was this incredible, prolific songwriter and just had these incredible, insightful things to say in his political songs, and we thought it would be funny if Woody Guthrie was alive today and just using the discourse of American politics in his songs.”
The 86,000-square-foot facility itself, designed by the San Francisco firm Fisher-Freedman Associates, seems to sit in the heavens – 1,500 feet above the tumult of Oakland, in the craggy hills of Joaquin Miller Park.
FBI agents have arrested a man suspected of posting online messages threatening the life of a California transit cop who was involved in a controversial shooting earlier this year.
Bureaucratic indifference has marked nearly every aspect of the nation’s homeland security operations, a point best indicated by the FCDA’s evolution: Over the following decades, it migrated regularly between different departments and underwent nearly a dozen name changes and agency affiliations before eventually becoming the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the 1970s. After the 9/11 attacks there was yet another organizational reshuffling, and the agency finally ended up part of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003.
Mike Coffey, president of a Texas investigation firm, contends that even periodically refreshing data from state and local databases isn’t sufficient to obtain current data, since courts update records daily and state repositories can’t keep pace with every court. A felony charge one day could be reduced to a misdemeanor the next day, and unless investigators examined courthouse records when they conducted a background check, they couldn’t be sure they were giving employers the most current data.
*Stay away from the beach, * she had been about to say. *Avoid the lake. Stay out of the rain. Don’t go into the shower alone. *The material she was about to cover didn’t come from her training manual. It came from her mother.
They also have a patent, a website, and a nifty graphic I’ve inserted below. In the wild world of privately-produced directed energy weapons, that certainly puts them in the game, I would think (more details on their technology below).
US Cellular is offering 50 percent off a single Galaxy S10E if you have service and pay on a 30-month installment plan. You must be a new or current customer and be willing to get the “Total Plan with Unlimited Plus Data.”
And O, that’s good! Yes, that is the name of Oprah Winfrey’s new healthy comfort food that she’s launching in collaboration with Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ: KHC). The company hopes to convince consumers that packaged foods can also be nutritious.
Gates and former DuPont CEO Charles Holliday heralded the launch of the American Energy Innovation Council with an unusually clear and concise argument for increased government support for green tech R&D.
Google image search is getting the instant treatment in the coming weeks, so that pictures will begin streaming into your browser with the first keystroke.
SAN MATEO, California – Singapore’s most twisted, droll and insanely popular humor site launched quietly enough last year after one of its editors got dumped from a dying Internet company in the United States.
Tableau, co-founded by Stanford University professor Pat Hanrahan, developed animation software that powered movie studio Pixar. Large enterprise customers, such as Barclays, IKEA and Deloitte, use its programs to cut back on the use of spreadsheets. (Reporting by Lauren Hirsch in New York and Liana B.

Ed Black, CEO of computing industry trade group CCIA, was testifying at the hearing, and he agreed that COICA was a “good example of what not to do in an important, complicated digital ecosystem.”
For some, the report offered a chance to shine a little light on their own abilities. Search company Vivisimo, which specializes in making information searchable at the paragraph level, indexed the report and organized it into groups or clusters according to topic. Clusters are then labeled, for example, “Saudi” or “Taliban.” Users can also create their own clusters. More than 20,000 searches took place in the first three days, according to a spokesman. The most frequent “non-canned queries” were “Berger Clinton Iraq Bush Iran.”
REVISED (11/6/08): Apparently, the volcano in question is Dalaffilla, which shows up in the GVP website (Thanks Ole and Ron). There isn’t much information on Dalaffilla, except that, surprisingly, it appears to be a silicic volcano. The reports I’ve read so far seem to indicate that lava flows have spread out over a large area, which would suggest a low viscosity (i.e., basaltic) lava. Thanks to the Eruptions readers who dug out some great information.
And speaking of Russian intelligence, this week it also became apparent that Facebook gave Russian internet giant Mail.ru a two-week extension on curtailing its invasive data practices back in 2015. Facebook says it hasn’t found any misuse by Mail.ru, but, you know. Not ideal.
Cingular’s Mobitex wireless service covers the entire United States, except for North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska.
