Wired.com: David Wain’s 2008 movie Role Models was highly praised and Wainy Days is very sharp — funnier than just about any sitcom on television today. How did that show come together?
The main areas where Mozilla lost points related to the lack of public data about project contributors, the size of the developer base, and the number of commits from community members. Mozilla’s impressive new contributor metrics dashboard, which was announced in April but is currently undergoing a security audit prior to public launch, will likely address those shortcomings.
Michael O’Leary, Motion Picture Association of America vice president, told Smith that, “it’s a concern, but frankly overstated.”
Back in March Mattel announced the iconic doll would be teaming up with AMC and the costume creator of the hit show Mad Men. Costumer Jane Bryant worked with Mattel to create a collectible line of Mad Men dolls for the latest Barbie Collection. In this video Janie Bryant and other designers who worked on the project talk about hours spent as children in their rooms, designing clothes for their Barbies. Fully realized, the dolls are now featured in the latest Barbie catalog, and are available for purchase on the website.
Now a quality assurance engineer at the software vendor Workday, Thomas said he was happy he took the classes. But he said he would not recommend that route for everyone, especially if it involved taking on debt, like he did.
The far stealthier of the two known Olympics hacking operations—and perhaps the most troubling—has quietly targeted South Korean Olympics-related organizations for well over a month. Researchers for security firm McAfee discovered just this week that the campaign, which they’ve named Operation GoldDragon, has attempted to plant three distinct spyware tools on target machines that would enable hackers to deeply scour the compromised computers’ contents. McAfee identifies those malicious tools by the names GoldDragon, BravePrince, and GHOST419.
For those curious folks among you, I am, in fact, a Neutral Cleric during our weekly session, and so I couldn’t help but try that particular set of oils–it that happens to be one of my favorite scent combinations, believe it or not. Lawful Paladin is also right up my alley, and Elf Mage is delightful. However, oddly enough, I’m kind of obsessed with Evil, as it’s turned to my go-to daily scent. And the scent that’s gotten me the most compliments? That would be Rogue. Extra bonus: the artwork is fantastic.
They lead me to the basement, where they have constructed a huge batting-and-golfing cage. “We spent a lot of hours in here perfecting the sensors and working on our swings,” Han says. The walls are studded with marks from errant balls. Their prototype worked so well it attracted the attention of an Apple rep who was touring China, looking for products for the Apple Store. Satisfying Apple’s precise aesthetics required them to slowly refine the design through 14 prototypes, but it paid off: Since the Zepp sensor launched in Apple Stores worldwide in 2012, Zepp has activated more than 300,000 of them.
The Google Transparency Project says no. The papers Google funded expressly supported the business, covering “a wide range of policy and legal issues of critical importance to Google’s bottom line, including antitrust, privacy, net neutrality, search neutrality, patents and copyright.”
2008 IGF finalist World of Goo is now slated to be released on the Nintendo Wii, PC, Mac and Linux platforms.
Only a couple of months after taking office, Carter returned to Silicon Valley to deliver a speech at Stanford, the first time in two decades that a secretary of defense had made the pilgrimage. After the talk, his five-car motorcade rolled up in front of the Andreessen Horowitz office. Andreessen was on paternity leave; cofounder Ben Horowitz hosted Carter for a roundtable conversation with entrepreneurs from a dozen companies. The mood was relaxed, and the entrepreneurs spoke freely. “One guy said, ‘We’d love to work with the government, but some of our engineers live a certain lifestyle where they wouldn’t get clearance,’” Horowitz remembers. “He was talking about weed.”

One cool thing about the Bumblebee and Cliffjumper (both in the “Deluxe” line of figurines) is that there’s a sort of gear-driven piece of the transformation that makes a little bit of it feel automatic. For instance, the last step of Bumblebee’s car-to-robot change involves rotating the arms back: when you do that, his head pops up from the hood of the car, and the two headlights separate and angle up. The first time I did that was a “whoa!” moment. Cliffjumper’s isn’t quite as impressive, but you fold the arms down at the shoulders and his head pops up from his chest area.
“It wouldn’t be like a panacea for deaf people,” said Paul Mitchell, director of the American Sign Language Institute. “I think the tendency in deaf culture is to use natural signing and human interpreters.”
