The drivetrain isn’t quite as potent at the Roadster’s, with just 201 horsepower to the Roadster’s 288, but it’s got 166 pound-feet of torque. Though down on power, the acceleration lines up exactly with the Roadster Sport thanks to improved battery chemistry and a lighter curb weight. Three “military grade” lithium-polymer battery packs doll out 37 kilowatt-hours of juice. All that oomph, and a curb weight of 2,354 pounds (370 pounds lighter than the Tesla), let the SP:01 deliver a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds — exactly the same as the Tesla Roadster Sport.
After the war broke out, Pax’s site was featured in hundreds of news stories, including pieces by MSNBC, the BBC, The New York Times and The Washington Post. The bandwidth demands caused by the ensuing stampede of visitors overwhelmed the weblog’s servers, until Google kicked in with mirrors.
Beth Coleman, aka DJ Singe, and a leading light in NYC’s multimedia scene, will also play a set.
The BPAL RPG line is currently available at the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab website. It’s a great addition to the wonderful line of perfume oils and really appeals to any geek who has played a RPG before.
Musician Dan Phillips was pleased to see his song, “Let it Snow,” included in one of the playlists.
It’s the kind of logistical knot that other marketplaces, including eBay, have tried to avoid. But Ready-Campbell says it’s by design. By making the process of selling old stuff easier for sellers, he believes Twice can not only entice more people to sell their things online, but can also make the shopping experience more appealing to buyers.
__Some other notes from the terminal: __Thanks to AT&T spokesman Seth Bloom, who was able to arrange a loaner phone for me after I lost my iPhone. Appreciate the help, Seth. Of course, if anybody has an iPhone that they’d like to sell me for a reasonable price, let me know.
“A single plasma detonation is at the moment equivalent to that of a large firecracker,” says Braun, “just imagine couple hundred all at once.”
That material could make a firearm that doesn’t crack or deform after a few shots, as the plastic Liberator tends to. Defense Distributed engineer John Sullivan says one of the biggest barriers to the Liberator’s durability has been the expansion of its barrel with every firing. A barrel with strands of carbon fiber wound around it in rings would withstand much greater “hoop stress,” as Sullivan calls it. “The barrel won’t expand. It’s just beautiful,” Sullivan says. “This is a gun machine they’ve made, and we want to make a gun on it.”
It remains to be seen if the website triggers enough viewer bloodlust to generate big ratings for the 13-episode series, but as an experiment in web/network synergy, Harper’s twisted universe will likely test the limits of not-ready-for-prime-time torture porn.
When WIRED covered the announcement of Graph API, Ryan Singel wrote, “There’s a nagging suspicion that when Facebook says it’s simply reacting to changing norms about how public we want our lives to be, that it’s actually forging that condition, not reacting to it.”
“The case law that comes out of Judge Omansky’s decision is a miracle for online news sites like my own and online journalists like myself,” he said in an e-mail interview on Sunday. “It establishes that an online news provider now has the same rights as The New York Times or any other newspaper or magazine in the eyes of the law.”
From there, the team worked to trace the botnet’s connections back to the main Mirai control server. Then, armed with court orders, they were able to track down associated email addresses and cell phone numbers used for those accounts, establishing and linking names to the boxes.
“Their standards are not up to scratch,” said 71-year-old Walt Burrows, who has driven a black cab for 39 years. “The black cab is an iconic part of London. What you get with a black cab is a metered fare and you know you’re safe.”
The Standard Magnetic Project Mat retails for $12.95 and the Pro Magnetic Project Mat is $19.95. You can pick one up at iFixit.com. I also urge you to read the Fix The Planet Page. I respect the company’s philosophy and if you don’t fix your own electronics, this video may change your mind.

As for “integrity,” HTTPS also prevents any interloper on your local network from tampering with or partially blocking the contents of a site on its way from a server to your browser. Without HTTPS, a government censor can choose to block certain pages of a site or even just parts of a page. More active tampering could allow an internet service provider to insert ads or hackers to inject code designed to compromise your computer. Last year the Chinese government even used a similar trick to add a script to the homepage of the Chinese search engine Baidu that triggered visitors’ browsers to request information from the Chinese version of the New York Times and the code repository Github, knocking both sites offline.
This #HimToo movement inspired New York Times op-eds and dedicated accounts for male victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Critics would argue that #MeToo has always been gender neutral, and high-profile men like Terry Crews are a crucial part of the movement. But reports of Italian actress Asia Argento (and erstwhile #MeToo leader) paying off a young male accuser reinforced the need for a separate, male-focused movement.
“This is a great effort and a good start on making an accessible museum exhibit that can be used by people with visual disabilities,” Bartlett said. “More websites need to take this kind of proactive action to realize that in the 21st century, audiences include people of all abilities and capabilities.”
As meme, metaphor, and instrument of civic awareness, the Doomsday Clock is unmatched. But as a clock, it’s a total failure. It’s really a gauge, not a timepiece—what self-respecting nonquantum chronometer rides back and forth over the same patch of time for 50 years, anyway? Its website, Turnbacktheclock.org, features imagery and a domain name meant to suggest the difficulty, maybe even the impossibility, of the task. To turn back the clock you would need a miracle—or at least a flux capacitor.
Overstock’s expansion into auto sales comes as Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), the world’s largest e-commerce company, looks to carve out a larger piece of the market for itself. Amazon has partnered with Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) to sell three Fiat models in Italy through the website. Reports indicate that Amazon is looking to sell cars elsewhere in Europe. Rival Ebay (NASDA:EBAY) has also expanded its automobile offerings, selling new and used vehicles as well as parts.
But now “pivot” has become this all-purpose joke meaning—“Oops, that didn’t work, let’s try something else.”
And if you absolutely must have everything, there’s the Master Collection, which includes just about every application that Adobe makes. It’s $2500, or $2000 for the upgrade.
Stephen Yellin even set up his bar mitzvah as a political convention with all 50 delegations, but he admits the nomination was rigged in his favor.
When done right, though, they can add a subtle bit of action to a layout. Image: Guillaume Kurkdjian
The FTC has shown some interest in online advertising in the last two years, holding hearings and issuing an advisory report (.pdf) in February 2009. But Center for Digital Democracy director Jeff Chester say its “inaction has encouraged the data-collection and ad-targeting industry to expand the use of consumer information for personalized advertising.”
Many within the music industry (including U2 manager Paul McGuinness) will no doubt view these 2.3 million downloads as sales Radiohead lost by giving the album away in a readily-sharable format. And either way, they represent email addresses that Radiohead failed to add into its fan database.
