Many prisoners’ websites are run by foreign activists who live in countries where capital punishment is illegal. The American Civil Liberties Union, which cites a national error rate of 68 percent in death penalty judgments, also hosts some convicts’ sites.
But how can a startup from New York compete with the Orville Redenbacher’s or Jiffy Pop’s of the world? “We really don’t consider ourselves in competition with the other popcorn companies, no one does it like us,” says Nercessian. It’s his secret popping method that sets Kettle Corn NYC apart.
Dell’s sales have grown this year, but less rapidly, causing shares in the company to lose nearly one-half their value in the past 52 weeks.
Google Glass had the right idea but the wrong timing, rollout and price-point. Folks weren’t ready for the creep factor of being recorded without their permission, but with the right positioning and functionality, I believe consumers will warm up to the idea. The potential to augment our work and personal lives with real-time, hands-free information, communication and entertainment is practically limitless.
“That ruling will wrongly delay the marketing of every biosimilar,” Sandoz’s lawyer Deanne Maynard told the justices. She said Congress “would not have extended the 12-year exclusivity period in such a bizarre way.”
This new development will not only put MySpace in the good graces of the IP/DRM police, but it will also put Google/YouTube on the spot as the obvious question becomes: Why hasn’t YouTube implemented the same system? On the downside, we’ll have to watch closely to see if this new soft-DRM hinders the popularity of MySpace. It may be time to start taking bets on what site MySpacers will migrate to.
Kelly has a point, but it comes out all wrong. Anonymous systems are inherently easier to abuse and harder to secure, as his eBay example illustrates. In an anonymous commerce system – where the buyer does not know who the seller is and vice versa – it’s easy for one to cheat the other. This cheating, even if only a minority engaged in it, would quickly erode confidence in the marketplace, and eBay would be out of business. The auction site’s solution was brilliant: a feedback system that attached an ongoing “reputation” to those anonymous user names, and made buyers and sellers accountable for their actions.
Harris (HRS) said a unit of the company would commence a tender offer for all outstanding shares of Exigent for $3.55 per share in cash, a premium of about 45 percent based on Exigent’s closing price of $1-15/16 on the Nasdaq on Monday.
The state’s attorney general claims Rubin and his classmates violated New Jersey computer crime laws and demanded they hand over source code for their creation and any documentation related to the tool.

He’s met with similar reactions from the New York City police department and the Secret Service. In a strange twist of fate, Mann actually missed the Austin screening because airport security wouldn’t let him on the plane with his gear.

About 56 million credit cards may have been exposed during five-month hack attack on the home improvement retailer.
The Global Square Knutson is helping to build is finalizing its tech and will launch, probably in January, with basic linkages for various Occupy sites to trade messages, re-publish articles and allow cross-commenting on them.
Once you’ve calculated the number of BTUs you’ll need, there’s other variables to factor in as well. If the space is exposed to a lot of direct sunlight, add 10 percent to the number of BTUs you’ll require. No sunlight? Subtract 10 percent. Planning on regularly having more than two people in the space at a time? Tack on an additional 600 BTUs per person. Putting your air conditioner in the kitchen? That’s an automatic 6,000 additional BTUs to compensate for the amount of heat generated by your stove and oven.

On the other hand, the fact that the application basically breaks out of character by including entries about real-world topics might disappoint the Star Trek purists.
Nokia expects its new luxury Nseries handsets, which feature built-in hard drives and high-quality camera lenses, to boost sales by differentiating the company from its competitors and increasing its industry-leading margins.
To me, that was starting to seem like a long shot. But it did look like there could be another path. Most companies, after all, are more like Covered—a boring product that serves a need—than like Snapchat. Somewhere between the billionaires and the flameouts, there are less dramatic potentialities. People like Ross could be testing a different future: for cities like Denver to be homes for useful, if unglamorous, tech companies—in other words, Main Street businesses with code.
Verizon’s shares were down 2.5 percent at $49.10 in premarket trading. Up to Wednesday’s close, the stock had risen 8.76 percent since the start of the year.
Dunkin’ Donuts, in a statement, said it wrote the letter, “In support of our legal rights under trademark law and in support of our franchisees.”

Further raising doubts over its future viability, Toshiba’s U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse Electric Co. filed for bankruptcy protection in March.
He documents his efforts on a website and recently started a service that allows suspicious wives to register the make, model and license plate of their husbands’ cars. If Bates finds a registered car’s occupants in compromising positions during his forays into the city’s underbelly, he will send the wife a copy of his evidence. He said more than 2,000 people have signed up for the service, including wives, girlfriends and employers.
The initial spacecraft, known as MX-1E, is slated to fly before the end of the year aboard a Rocket Lab Electron booster, which launches from New Zealand. Moon Express hopes the endeavor will clinch a $20 million prize from Google, but Richards said the win was not essential.
With Toys R Us gone, those sales are up for grabs, and Amazon wants them. The digital-first company was already beating Toys R Us in market share. And while it alone was not responsible for the demise of Toys R Us—poor business decisions and its sizable debt were also to blame—Amazon did put intense pressure on the toy store chain with extremely low prices, especially during the past few holidays seasons, using its familiar tactic of sacrificing profit for market share. Toys R Us couldn’t compete. Now Amazon hopes to feed from the carcass.
Since Congressman Steve Israel first called for legislation that would ban 3-D printed guns, those plastic-printed firearms have evolved from a few simple components to a full one-shot pistol to rifles and multi-shot revolvers, with more advances on the horizon. Israel’s bill, meanwhile, has gone nowhere, leaving a widening gap between DIY weapons and the law.
Nielsen was speaking at an event to promote his new book, Homepage Usability: 50 Websites Deconstructed. The book – written with co-author Marie Tahir – proposes 113 design guidelines that Web builders should abide by to make their sites easy to use.
