Responsive websites don’t rely on user agent strings though. Instead they adapt to screen size based on CSS media queries so even if a user has the option for desktop sites checked in Chrome they still won’t get the “desktop” site (of course with responsive sites there really is no desktop site, just a desktop layout).
I assembled the cabinet over a few weeks (mainly nights). A few coats of paint along with some t-molding to cover the edges give it a polished look. The cabinet was no longer an idea but a very close to finished treasure.
Although he says his company is pro-transparency, Jeftovic didn’t go so far as to say he philosophically supports WikiLeaks.

These dust-ups come at a time when Amazon’s success appears to depend increasingly on third-party sales, which now account for about 40 percent of the total items sold through the company’s website. This seems like a great deal for Amazon. It has a massive technology infrastructure. It’s built dozens of massive warehouses. The less money Amazon has to spend on inventory to keep those shelves filled, the lower its costs and the lower its risk.
“Uru Live‘s a good example of a publisher and developer jumping in and trying to do something ambitious online before they were ready to commit to the needs of getting a massively multiplayer (online game) going,” said Chris Kramer, director of public relations at Sony Online Entertainment, which publishes EverQuest, a competing online world. “Most publishers just aren’t in the position where they can commit the sort of dollars to the technology to run a successful” MMO.
“It was exciting,” said Kareem Zaghloul, a neurosurgeon and researcher at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, “because the data they showed was very consistent with [Howard’s] ideas.” (In work published last month, Zaghloul and his team showed how changes in neural states in the human temporal lobe linked directly to people’s performance on a memory task.)
Well, I’ve found another great project-supplying company. It’s called Kiwi Crate, and it sends out a pre-packaged little box that contains at least three special craft projects each month. You can pay-as-you-go for a monthly box or you can save some money by subscribing to a 3-month or 12-month delivery. Aimed at kids ages 3 to 7, it’s absolutely perfect. You don’t need to go hunting for anything!
Nina Stössinger, senior typeface designer at Frere-Jones Type, expects artificial intelligence to have an ability to “replicate patterns and logic” frequently used in design work. Some of the results might be predictable, and some might be layouts we could create on our own. If something like DesignScape could help get those warm-up and immediate ideas out of us faster, Stössinger sees that as a useful aid. But she also worries that such assistance could trap designers, preventing them from thinking outside the box or customizing their work.
This text conversation has been another driver for messaging growth. Most text messages demand a response, like “U@” (where you at) or “UOK” (you OK). SMS has also spawned a large number of services, like jokes, horoscopes, ordering taxis and information about favorite programs, football teams or the latest news.
Then the 58-year-old Arkansas native, who retired from the military three years ago, dropped something of a bombshell on the gathering.
A gifted learner who had been enrolled in advanced-placement classes and tutored other kids in French, Layshock spent the next month in a scaled-down three-hour-a-day program where a typical assignment saw students building a tower out of paper clips as a lesson in teamwork. The punishment led to an ACLU lawsuit that is ongoing, and garnered the school district a slew of critical stories in the local papers.
Microsoft has expressed concerns about royalty-free licensing of W3C standards – something Linux developers strongly support.
The TI-Navigator wireless classroom learning system includes a classroom computer for the teacher, with a series of wireless hubs that power TI-83 Plus graphing calculators that wirelessly connect the students to the teacher.
“Facebook has to address an ongoing series of conflicting goals as it seeks to expand ad revenues and eventually go public,” Jeffrey Chester, a privacy advocate and the executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy, said in an e-mail message. “As the company continually develops new ways to monetize its user data, new threats to member privacy appear. So, the company has to operate with a two steps forward, one step back approach.”
“It’s going to be disruptive but it can be a positive and a negative,” he said. “Each employee becomes more productive [which means she is] worth more. However, we may need fewer employees.”
On March 4, an embryologist at Pacific Fertility Center was doing a routine walk-through of the clinic’s collection of waist-high steel tanks, each one filled with thousands of liquid nitrogen-bathed vials of frozen sperm, eggs, and embryos. The San Francisco-based clinic offers cryogenic cold storage and in vitro fertilization services for patients throughout the Bay Area, many of whom work for tech companies with hefty fertility benefits packages—Apple, Google, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn. PFC charges its patients $600 a year for storage alone, which covers the personnel required to maintain the tanks, according to its website. Every day someone has to do a physical inspection of the equipment, and staff are on-call 24/7. But that Sunday, the embryologist discovered that in one tank, Tank No. 4., the liquid nitrogen levels had slipped to dangerously low levels.
What isn’t known, because of the condition of the Martellus map, is how similar the text on the two maps is. “One of the most exciting images I’ve ever seen of a map is an ultraviolet image of the Martellus map taken in the early ’60s,” Van Duzer said. “If you look at eastern Asia with natural light, if you look closely, you get a hint that there’s text there, but if you look in ultraviolet light suddenly you see that there’s text everywhere.”
Rumors of a Flash Player on the iPhone have been growing in volume lately, but Steve Jobs rather harshly rejected the idea during a recent Apple shareholder meeting. Jobs dismissed the idea of putting Adobe’s Flash Player on the iPhone, saying that the desktop Flash Player “performs too slow to be useful” and the mobile version “is not capable of being used with the web.”
Next, what about the mass? I recently did a calculation like this for The Hulk. In short, I assumed a person was like a cylinder. If you increase the height of a human-cylinder by 8.7 times, you would have to increase the radius of the human-cylinder by 8.7 times in order to keep the aspect ratio correct.
The plans come after an aborted attempt by the Chinese search giant’s chief executive Robin Li to buy the unit earlier this year for $2.3 billion.
“We’d like our (street team) membership to knock on online doors,” Cho said, “IMing their buddy lists and helping them to find their polling places.”
Land of enchantment, aliens, spaceracing: Now that a team is on the verge of winning the X Prize, Diamandis wants to make sure everyone knows we’re just beginning the new space race.
Log onto the Helix DNA marketplace—it’s like the app store for consumer genetic products—and the candy-colored website invites you to “Get started with DNA.” Clicking through takes you to one of Helix’s featured products: the DNAPassport. It was developed by Denver-based HumanCode, which Helix acquired in June, and lets users explore where their ancestors come from, whether they might be sensitive to gluten or lactose, and more than 40 other genetically-influenced traits. One of them is something called “academic achievement.”
