The Silicon Valley-based firm, which GM acquired in March 2016 for $1 billion, has also been testing its autonomous driving tech on roads in San Francisco, Arizona, and Michigan. During its upcoming tests in Manhattan, there will be an engineer in the driver’s seat to “monitor and evaluate performance,” and a second person in the passenger seat.
Then, just as the Bush administration was finalizing plans to relaunch the site, malicious hackers appear to have defaced the executive branch homepage on Tuesday. In addition, a denial-of-service attack left whitehouse.gov unreachable from, according to a Web monitor, around 2:30 p.m. EDT to 8:20 p.m.
Top experts in astronomy give the site high marks. Harvard astronomy professor Alyssa Goodman said the site “looks amazing.”
One thing that is unquestionable: There is a market. Either through licensing the teledildonics patent or risking lawsuits, several companies have tried to build sex technology that takes advantage of Bluetooth and the internet. “Remote connectivity allows people on opposite ends of the world to control each other’s dildo or sleeve device,” says Maxine Lynn, a patent attorney who writes the blog Unzipped: Sex, Tech, and the Law. “Then there’s also bidirectional control, which is going to be huge in the future. That’s when one sex toy controls the other sex toy and vice versa.”
In 2002, three years before YouTube, BMW ported this revelation to the internet. More than 11 million viewers initially tuned in to watch the web-only short film series The Hire, starring Clive Owen. Of those, 2 million registered to the BMW website. We don’t know how many of those clicks were converted into sales, but here’s the big number: In four years, it’s estimated the videos were viewed over 100 million times.
This reflected Josh. Performance art had been a fashionable form of expression in the 1980s but had run its course by the late ’90s. Ferrato saw that he responded to and admired these edgy people who would do anything; who were so at odds with his own careful, strategized approach to life, but who also often had little to say. In the ’80s, the simple act of breaking boundaries had seemed worthwhile, but by 1999—post-web—most obvious boundaries had been broken. With the rest untroubled by a man with a plastic vagina.
Players roll for initiative, and the losing player must move first. Each player moves their largest Type ship, and then each player moves their second-largest Type, etc. Each ship has its own number of movement points (MP), which can be reduced if the engines are damaged. It costs 1MP to move forward one hex, and 1MP to rotate the ship one hex-face. In addition, there are minimum requirements for how many hexes forward you must travel before you are allowed to rotate. The full rules also include instructions for sideslipping, rotating more than one hex-face, or using offensive or defensive screening.
Thus far several publishers and authors have sued Google, as has the US Authors Guild, Microsoft apparently wishes to avoid the lawsuits.
Partly because of the uneven taxation, revenues in the EU retail sector grew on average by only 1 percent a year between 2008 and 2016, while in the same period revenues of the top-five online retailers, such as Amazon, grew on average by 32 percent per year, the Commission’s report says.
By making changes to the kit’s circuitry, replacing the red LEDs with different colors and reprogramming the included microcontroller, Altman has made not only the TV-B-Gone, but also glowing lights that respond to hand gestures, an electronic “dog” that spins its tail in reaction to sunlight, a 3x3x3 cube of LEDs that displays abstract 3-dimensional patterns, and even a pair of glasses with embedded, flashing LEDs and a pair of headphones for getting your brain waves into a meditative state.
QuickFire strength is that it does not relent, continually firing off thousands of e-mails until the server is shut down and the address blocked. It is believed to be the tool used for hack attacks on the Israeli Foreign Ministry site and its webmaster’s e-mail address.
Sehn does have regrets from the Find Friends exploit, which became part of the aforementioned FTC settlement. (Technically, the agency charged Snapchat with misleading users by claiming that it took reasonable measures to protect user information, a promise the FTC found spurious.) “I think one of the mistakes was not apologizing quickly enough,” he says. “So I want to apologize to our users.”
The replacement of flip phones by smartphones has also increased the risk, said Charlie Klauer, a lead researcher at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
And while he told them he was amenable to stepping aside from management of the firm, Rothenberg was gunning to head River Studios. “I am willing to lead this charge to make sure the River Studios investment is protected for the LPs, and ultimately the largest driver for success. The alternative is to avoid action and allow this investment to disappear unnecessarily,” he wrote.
Still there are a number of WebKit-compatible Greasemonkey scripts out there so if you’re using Mailplane or other site specific apps, like Chris Messina’s Diet Pibb, you may will find that GreaseKit suits your needs.
Gigatron founder and CEO Benjamin Satterfield accepts the SXSWi Web Award for best mobile app on behalf of his company.
NT: Before we dig into that though, back to the narrow network for a second. If data is so screwed up in health care, because good data would change and perhaps undermine all of health care, how can you be completely confident in your decisions about what doctors to let into your network, who to partner with, and how to measure patient quality of care? It’s like a chicken or egg problem.
For Microsoft, Tuesday’s event was the culmination of a campaign to emulate key aspects of the Chromebook strategy, said Mike Fisher, associate director for the education division at Futuresource Consulting.
With text, image enhancement, animation and raised images, i-Map will serve partially sighted and blind people with a general interest in art, as well as art teachers and their visually impaired students.
Ultimately, Squire sees her work as a type of “fusion center”—a government term for a data center that integrates intelligence from different agencies—for groups combating white nationalism. And she admits that she is outsourcing some of the ethical complexities of her work by handing her data off to a variety of actors. “But it’s the same as how Facebook is hypocritical in claiming to be ‘just a platform’ and not taking responsibility for hate. Every time we invent a technology to solve a problem, it introduces a bunch more problems. At least I’m attentive to the problems I’ve caused.” Squire sees herself as having to make difficult choices inside a system where old guidelines have been upended by the seismic powers of the internet. White nationalists can be tracked and followed, and therefore she believes she has a moral obligation to do so. As long as law enforcement keeps “missing” threats like James Alex Fields, she says, “I don’t have any moral quandaries about this. I know I’m following rules and ethics that I can stand up for.”
“I think it can be done,” Burrows said. “It takes time and it slows the process, but we all have to have the good will to let those panels and discussions be done honestly and not be weighted. It’s really hard to do.”
