I’ve started a long-term host list. After Katrina there were a few websites that popped up and started taking in names and addresses of people across the country who were willing to house evacuees for three to six months. There were quite a few who were even willing to go to New Orleans and pick up the family and help them get re-situated.
This milestone, just over four months after Instagram surpassed 600 million monthly active users, marks the fastest pace the social media giant has been able to add 100 million to its monthly total.
On stage tomorrow, Apple is expected to announce its newest computing chip for the iPhone, the A11. If Apple discloses graphics capabilities that are hugely different from what Imagination’s designs are known to be capable of, it will be a hint that Apple has already ceased tapping Imagination’s intellectual property.
“As we go forward,” said Trebor, “everything is going to be so easy to download we have to create a model that encourages consumers to pay but doesn’t make us crazy.”
But that’s nothing. Heikki Haapavaara, a journalist and the chairman of the Finnish Association of Aviation Journalists (sign us up) says Finnair will route its long-haul traffic through space and offer convenient nonstop service to space-station cities.
The original Red Steel was clearly a rush job intended to make it on shelves for Wii’s launch, but I felt the combination of motion-controlled sword swinging and pointer-controlled gunplay helped make up for the fact that the rest of it was so rough around the edges. Since Red Steel‘s release, Wii shooters have made great leaps in quality, so here’s hoping Red Steel 2 is the game the first one should have been.
Proof from Sudbury National Observatory in Canada that neutrinos have mass, after observing one kind of neutrino spontaneously changing into another kind. While van Middelkoop said in an e-mail that neutrino mass “has an impact on the Standard Model (as an input),” but “does not however put it in question,” Hamish Robertson, University of Washington physicist and spokesman for the experiment, calls the result “the first definite contradiction” to the “minimal” Standard Model.
That’s to be expected as Clark builds a formal campaign apparatus, those leaders said. But an underlying fear is that the seasoned professionals Clark has recruited to run his campaign will run a traditional, hierarchical political campaign that won’t square easily with the more anarchic and collaborative nature of the Internet-based draft movement.
Van Houtryve is referring to coding issues that delayed the official launch of Emphas.is. As developers raced to finish the site, the launch was pushed back; first days, then weeks. Set to launch in January, Emphas.is went live March 7th.
HealthKit bought its corresponding domain name, which Hardacre says is “too important to let go,” in early 2012. Apple hasn’t been in touch with the the company yet.
*First, the entire armory will go on display in Blackwater’s lobby. That should get some attention. If not, he’s counting on a public outcry. *
“Where it used to be some obviously fraudulent operators offering academic degrees in exchange for money and minimal amount of paperwork, it has morphed into a more sophisticated model, where the degree mill offers tutoring and all the trappings of an academic program, but in fact it is still an avenue to getting a degree quickly,” said Michael Lambert, executive director of the Distance Education and Training Council.
Set up a server and fill it with tempting files. Make it hard but not impossible to break into. Then sit back and wait for the crackers to show up.
While people in the country have a vague idea about the possibilities of the Internet, activists and pro-democracy groups working from outside say that the connectivity a Web address and e-mail provides has been vital in bringing the diffused Burmese community together.
The Art Now website registers artistic responses across different media, as they develop from initial attempts to document and memorialize the events to critical explorations of the present and possible futures.
After that meeting the MBTA says the description of the talk on the conference website was revised to delete the reference to “free subway rides for life” and alter the comment about social engineering transit employees. (The image below right, taken from the court document, shows changes made to the description of the talk. Text with a line through it indicates deletions; underlined words indicate additions. The original description still appears in the printed version of the schedule that is being handed out to conference attendees.)
“The strong ties between Kaspersky Lab and the Kremlin are alarming and well-documented,” Shaheen said, adding that she expected Congress to act soon to reinforce the decision by passing legislation.
Limited to a thousand attendees and richly priced, it might be the only comics convention in existence anchored and curated by a single writer. Inspired by cerebral culture happenings like TED and All Tomorrow’s Parties, MorrisonCon is for geeks galvanized by one of the few visionaries capable of redefining comics, which have become a storyboard factory for film and television in this era of repurposed content.
Yet the paper is not simply slow; it’s heavy. Even as increasingly data-rich science has outgrown the paper’s ability to deliver and describe all that science has to offer — its deep databases, its often elaborate methods — we’ve loaded it up needlessly with reputational weight and vital functions other than carrying data.

Tesla’s Autopilot, introduced in October, has been the focus of intense scrutiny since it was revealed in July that a Tesla Model S driver, Joshua Brown, was killed while using the technology in a May 7 collision with a truck in Florida.
Google Clips will be the first standalone camera from the search and advertising company, which has expanded its hardware business over the last year.
I keep hearing analysts whine about Apple’s inability to come up with a hot new product to take the place of the iPhone’s breakout success. And investors are indeed punishing the stock (NASDAQ:AAPL) today. The pundits say the tech giant has lost its innovative mojo. They say Tim Cook is no Steve Jobs. All that’s left is to milk services and the ecosystem. Apple’s best days are behind it, and all that.
The current ban, with affects only foreign carriers flying to the U.S. from 10 cities, allows passengers to travel with larger electronics packed in checked baggage.
There wasn’t really a lot of advertising in this episode, so I’m going to ask the question everybody’s sure to be wondering: Was
Kurt’s Queer Eye makeover Peggy supposed to make her look better?
