To some, it’s more information than your laptop can handle. Others define it as melding data from different sources and seeing what patterns emerge.
Update: While the Nabi (1) came with over $150 worth of pre-loaded software, the Nabi 2 has over $250 worth of pre-loaded software and e-books.
3DLT is a new company and it seems likely that this was all a misunderstanding, where placeholder data went live. But if you are a company whose business is about selling other’s ideas, step one is probably: make sure you’re 100% legit. Step two is probably: don’t accept money for things you can’t sell.
The Wooster Collective is the brainchild of New York City’s Marc Schiller and his wife, Sara. When the two moved to Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood in 2001, they started noticing graffiti and street art while walking their dog around the area, Schiller said.
Science isn’t the only hard part of creating an HIV vaccine. The business of it is lousy, too. In 2010, Don Francis—the same Don Francis who recruited Dorman to the cause—laid out a depressingly plausible explanation for the lack of a vaccine in the journal Biologicals. Publicly funded science, he wrote, is very good at coming up with new knowledge and disseminating it. That’s research. But society leaves the other half of R&D—development—to industry. And industry’s main goal is profit.
“Beyond that, we invite MP3tunes to make a substantive proposal both to redress past infringement of EMI works and to a ensure that there will be no future infringement of EMI works,” attorney Steven Fabrizio wrote MP3tunes’ counsel.
But there’s still one big problem with soldier attire, at least as far as the military’s mad-science agency is concerned: Someone’s gotta stitch the clothes together.
Wired: Compact game in a nice metal tin; discs are well-made and fun to handle; great variety in the knights’ abilities.
The company told the Times that Saga would be bound by deCODE’s privacy agreements with customers, which prohibits the disclosure of customer data to third parties such as insurers, employers or doctors.
Marlowe sees his vlogging as a business. “You have to understand it’s just content. I’m the producer, the director, and sometimes the star all in one,” he said. “That’s what social media has offered people like me—a platform and a voice also and a way to break into an audience.”
The order, Mr. Cook wrote, asks the company “for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create.”
Apple Inc.’s shares reached their highest closing level ever Monday, as investors bet that the 10th-anniversary iPhone expected later this year will return the world’s most valuable company to renewed momentum after its worst stumble in years.
The main part about the game I didn’t like was that there didn’t seem to be any real indication of where you should look for the trinkets — you just lazily fly over large swaths of land, criss-crossing in the hopes of having something pop up on the screen. There aren’t hard borders marked, either: when you fly too far, you just get more and more clouds blowing over the screen until it’s whited-out, and then you’re pushed back onto the map. The graphics aren’t quite at Infinity Blade levels — when you get close up you can start to see the polygons — but the overall tone and atmosphere are very cool. There are scenes in the setting sun, and scenes in the rain at night. The blowing clouds and various environmental elements are impressive.
DesignScape, a project out of the University of Toronto, has won a lot of attention since its YouTube debut in 2015 for the companionship it seems to offer non-designers. Unlike The Grid’s Molly or Firedrop’s Sacha, DesignScape doesn’t promise to do all the work for you, but it doesn’t leave you on your own, either. Instead, more like a teacher than an assistant, it nudges you toward alternate and better solutions. DesignScape’s developer, Peter O’Donovan, now works for Adobe, along with two other of the project’s co-authors, so its features could soon make their way into Adobe’s flagship products. As an Adobe spokesperson pointed out, Adobe Illustrator’s still-in-development Quick Layout, showcased at Adobe MAX 2016, automatically adapts to items you’ve placed in the composition—much like DesignScape.
When Angelenos vote Nov. 5, they’ll be asked to decide whether or not to let the San Fernando Valley secede from the rest of Los Angeles. Secession would split L.A. in two, creating a new city of approximately 1.3 million people, with an annual budget over $1 billion.
Leia’s Metal Bikini, a website dedicated to Carrie Fisher’s classic Star Wars costume, is organizing a Slave Leia group photo and video shoot at Gentle Giant’s booth on the Comic-Con floor next month.
Most of those operations are in eastern North Carolina, and eastern North Carolina is where you have your predominantly African-American communities, …other communities of color and also your highest rates of poverty. Looking at that map, we are able to use the phrase “environmental racism.”
Flashback, early 2008: Citibank officials are witnessing a huge spike in fraudulent withdrawals from New York area ATMs – $180,000 is stolen from cash machines on the Upper East Side in just three days. After a stakeout, police arrest one man walking out of a bank with thousands of dollars in cash and 12 reprogrammed cards. A lucky traffic stop catches two more plunderers who’d driven in from Michigan. Another pair are arrested after trying to mug an undercover FBI agent on the street for a magstripe encoder. In the end, there are 10 arrests and at least $2 million dollars stolen.
U.S. District Judge Marvin Aspen granted a preliminary injunction against the service on Sept. 4. The judge sided with recording company officials who claimed Madster violated copyright law, just as Napster had before it.
It’s going be a tough act for Wikivoyage to pull off, especially keeping the marketers at bay. But then again, that’s what every reference book or encyclopedia maker in the world thought until they were mowed down by Wales and his Wikipedia army.
Bondy also touts Firefox’s integration with Windows 8’s global search feature which allows you to search the web from any screen. Enter a URL and you’ll go to the website; enter anything else and Firefox will search the web using your default search engine. Additional Metro-specific features include a Metro file picker for opening and saving files (unlike a normal sandboxed Metro app, Firefox will have access to any file on your computer).
Twitter had 3,860 employees globally as of June. The reduction of more than 300, chiefly in its sales, partnerships, and marketing efforts.
Wow. I could use this advice for dressing every day, in fact. I’m always forgetting to put on my cod piece/rear under my pants.
New Windows phone: PC-E Phone, a San Diego company, is now selling a wireless phone that runs on the Pocket PC Windows CE operating system.
At first, this seems absurd, but why not? Electrolux ran some tests with real, live people to see how they vacuumed with and without music. The result is predictable, but still wonderful: vacuuming becomes fun! The subjects in the video (below) wiggle and dance to the music, burning extra calories, getting the job done faster and generally having a great time.
Jackson, who coordinates site’s Pollster section, said that the data is truly what matters, and it’s been consistent at the presidential level. “With everything we know about polling in general elections—that opinions are fairly stable, and fluctuations in national polls aren’t necessarily reflecting people changing their voting decisions—it makes sense to keep a calm, steady approach to aggregating and forecasting,” she said. “It might not be the best way to generate news, but it’s a very good way to model noisy data.”
In its brief, Ulbricht’s defense points out that the full extent of the crimes of corrupt Drug Enforcement Administration agent Carl Mark Force IV weren’t revealed to the defense until after the trial, and that similar offenses by Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges weren’t disclosed to the defense at all until indictments against the two agents were unsealed months after Ulbricht’s conviction. “To a significant degree the extent, and in some respects the nature, of Force’s misconduct—as well as Bridges’s participation altogether—was hidden by the government from the defense (and the Court) in this case until after trial,” writes Ulbricht’s lead attorney Joshua Dratel. “Contrary to the government’s claims and the Court’s decision, the evidence of Force’s (and Bridges’s) corruption was both material and exculpatory.”
