YouTube delivers more than 6 billion hours’ worth of content every month to viewers worldwide and is working to promote its talent pool even more. A host of other players—from IAC’s Vimeo to former Hulu CEO Jason Kilar’s Vessel—are gearing up to launch subscription video services. Add in all the hours users are spending on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant Video, and that’s a lot of online time not spent on Facebook. The more Facebook can make itself a native video platform, the more of those hours it can get for itself.
The text of the letter to Matusheski from the Defense Department’s general counsel, Jeh Charles Johnson, follows.
1. New Horizons is currently in the interplanetary cruise phase. What types of monitoring are occurring and on what frequency?
When Jacob and Reddy began working on ToyTalk’s first app in the summer of 2011, Apple had yet to announce Siri to the public. And while speech recognition technology did exist at the time, the field was far less mature than it is today. What’s more, their task was harder than Apple’s.
Yahoo responded again Wednesday to a report that it scanned incoming email to hundreds of millions of accounts for the U.S. government.
Krantz’s secret of success seems to be, at least partly, putting in countless hours in order to produce just a dozen or so pictures in the final story. Back in 2009 and 2010, Krantz spent the entire school year following students at a high school that primarily served low-income students and was in danger of closing.
“The big reason we do what we do is we think it’s important, especially with the craft beer culture that’s growing, that people get out there and connect with the beer they like to drink, and help promote small businesses making craft beer, and meet the people who are making the kind of beer they like,” said Jason Austin, one of the trio of beer-loving developers behind Pint Labs, which created Brewery Map and the database behind it, BreweryDB.com.
The group worries that genetically modified crops, including those engineered to contain pharmaceuticals, will contaminate organic and conventional crops, decrease biodiversity and give corporations control over the world’s food supply. Eramian said fewer than 5 percent of researchers and company representatives attending the meeting work on genetically altered plants. The other 95 percent are trying to find treatments and diagnostic tools for fighting diseases.

For more details on everything that’s new in HTML5 Boilerplate v2, head on over to the official site and read through the changelog. Perhaps the most refreshing thing about this release, is this note in the FAQs:
The ECB is the first of four major central banks set to meet this month, including the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and the Bank of England.
Customs duties have already been slashed in order to make India a hub for handset assembly lines, the official said.
I do not oppose health insurance paying for erection pills, as it does seem like a priority in relationships and for general overall health. (Insurance just better damn well pay for birth control and libido pills, too. Sooner rather than later.)
Yes, for the 23rd year, Discovery is making midsummer television exciting, fascinating and in all ways sharkier. You can read all about the programming on the official Shark Week website, where you can also see clips, read about sharks, play shark-related games and even turn a picture of yourself into a bizarre hybrid of shark and human. The week kicks off at 9PM Eastern/Pacific on Sunday with Ultimate Air Jaws, all about the amazing aerial attacks of great white sharks (see the above picture). That show is immediately followed by Into the Shark Bite, produced by the same folks who do Discovery’s Time Warp series, which uses high-definition, high-speed cameras to show how a shark bite works from closer-up than you can get without reducing your total number of limbs. And that’s just for starters.
For now, Popcorn Time’s developers depend on their unnamed web hosting company to ensure their anonymity, which is hardly a bulletproof strategy. “We’re anonymous but not in hiding,” Pochoclin says. “We guess our hosting company does know who we are. But they’re not supposed to give our information out to anyone. And it’s good enough for us.”
The new owners were already facing an artists’ revolt even beforetoday’s announcement, with Robbie Williams’ manager expressing concernabout the direction of the company, and Coldplay’s manager voicing his”confusion” at last week’s departure of EMI U.K. Chairman and CEO TonyWadsworth.
Since those modest monster beginnings, Kaiju Big Battel has evolved into an expanding series of media offerings. A DVD series from Redline Entertainment will spawn a new title in late 2004. A forthcoming book from Hyperion is due out in February; a 15-city U.S. tour will follow. Even a television pilot is in the works.
Gibbs said if a manufacturer can get a million units into WalMart, an independent inventor with a website will have to sell 1,000 units a day for three years to match that.
On Friday – the day after American Thanksgiving and the biggest shopping day of the year – and throughout the weekend, thousands of anti-consumerism activists worldwide will take to the malls to persuade shoppers not to shop.
Wirt and his team created a filtering system that let consumers actually navigate through the website, finding music quickly and easily.

Ericsson (ERICY) said an important element of the agreement is to accelerate the transformation of the core backbone network into one that is capable of handling both voice and data calls.
So Matsuoka changed the algorithms, shifting the Nest’s personality to more of a gentle coach than a noodge with a climate-change slide show. Her model was the dashboard on the Toyota Prius hybrid car. Just as the Prius provides feedback on fuel consumption, the Nest gives owners a sense of how they’re using energy — and an incentive to save, as opposed to a guilt trip when they don’t. Now, when you set the energy to a temperature-saving level, the Nest awards you with a virtual leaf – a little icon that Nest hopes you will cherish. It’s like a DIY carbon offset.
“We need to embrace technology. It’s not going to go away. We have to live with it. We have to love it,” he said.
The injunction is on appeal. This week, however, Judge White denied eBay’s motion to dismiss the antitrust claims made by Bidder’s Edge. The judge suggested in a footnote of his order that, if eBay’s suit fails, the company’s technologic self-help measures may be evidence of antitrust activity.
Google also announced what it called “Instant Pages” – another Chrome-only feature – that pre-renders the most likely page for a user. Clicking on a web result instantly loads the page in your browser – saving two to five seconds per page load. The effect is like magic, but could have the side effect of annoying website owners since Google will be hitting their servers even when users don’t actually quick through.
Dr Nachson Kenoller, a neurosurgeon who has performed the procedure on three people, said the spinal cord and brain had been considered areas where regeneration was impossible.
What Really Happened: Quite what brought filmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh to a dry lakebed in Nevada, where they built a scale model of our solar system, may forever remain a mystery, but what their project accomplished will make you glad that they did. It might not be the very first to-scale (1 astronomical unit to 176 meters, if you’re curious) model, but it’s certainly one of the most impressive—and one that makes the viewer fully aware of just how damn big everything is out there.
Two years ago, the company made a strategic move to rebrand as CRV – presumably, as I would guess, to hide the Charles River reference and promote its Silicon Valley branch, even though it has just four partners there. The firm also appears to be trying to make a name for itself as an immigrant-friendly investor. Aha.
After several days of testimony in July, Kaplan ordered both sides to submit briefs by Aug. 8, outlining whether computer codes can be considered legally protected forms of speech.
The number of confirmed cases in Singapore has risen to 177, the fourth highest in the world, and Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong said the city state could be facing its worst crisis ever.
