But there were other kinds of winners. There was the news media, whose TV ratings and website traffic soared. And the comedians, both professional and amateur.
I could go on – the daily, off-the-record conversations Greenwald had with Assange while penning at least one of his anti-Wired screeds; or the fact that he failed to disclose in the body of his first article that he was personally trying to secure a new attorney for Manning while writing the piece.
The other issue is that the clause allows the Company to choose the arbitrator. This is highly unusual and may actually invalidate the arbitration clause. In order to comport with due process, a mandatory arbitration agreement must, among other things, provide a neutral, impartial decision maker. Typically this is done by allowing the parties to jointly select an arbitrator or to have an impartial third party (such as an arbitration agency) select one.
Clear was founded by entrepreneurial journalist Steven Brill in response to long airport lines and charged $200 a year to air travelers who got cards entitling them to special lanes at airport security.
Becoming a delivery driver, though, isn’t required for employees, Lore stressed, but rather an opportunity to earn extra cash. Those who want to, can opt into the program and have control over things like how many packages they deliver, and size and weight limits of each shipment.
Because Ziff Davis’ 1.3-MB text file included names, mailing addresses, e-mail addresses and in some cases credit card numbers, a thief who downloaded it would have enough information to make fraudulent mail-order purchases. An executive at one New York magazine firm called the error “a bush-league mistake for a major online publisher.”
TIRED Some users have complained about the low-contrast text. The book content is shackled by DRM that makes it impossible to use on any other device you own, unless you use Amazon’s Kindle application. Will display PDF files, but Amazon charges a conversion fee of 10 cents per file if you want to send them wirelessly. No touchscreen, and keyboard-based typing can be tedious. Available in one color only.
The game’s main Adventure mode features eight levels. After a brief period of orientation, figuring out the most opportune times to deploy my super-powered lasers (as well as a small stock of smart bombs that obliterate everything on the screen), I was able to zip through the entire game in well under two hours.
Yet the picture is attributed to a static Flickr URL that doesn’t even indicate what Flickr account the photo was borrowed from. Oddly, enough it was the “official” Star Wars Flickr page.
Farnsworth uses high-tech microphones, but he learned his craft from William Evans, a former Cornell University ornithologist who developed the initial recording setup and pared it down for the DIY crowd.
Fortunately, as parents, large-scale implementation isn’t a prerequisite. Any time you create a situation in which your child needs math to accomplish something desirable, like making a robot, or a videogame, or a model airplane, you are taking your kid a little closer to Mathland. And that’s an amazing place to be.
The inevitable conclusion is that the malware is designed specifically to attack the Tor browser. The strongest clue that the culprit is the FBI, beyond the circumstantial timing of Marques’ arrest, is that the malware does nothing but identify the target.
The Nexus One will, crucially, be sold unlocked, according to TechCrunch, giving Google complete control over the hardware and software with no pesky carrier interference. Even the iPhone, which has had almost unprecedented autonomy in its functionality is still constrained by carriers: AT&T’s anti-tethering paranoia is a good example.
Whether further isolating an already isolated country is just punishment, however, remains to be seen.
“My wish is that each and every one of us will resolve to turn our backs on the use of chemicals,” writes the author of the Anchorage piece. He’s not alone in this perspective. If I google the term “chemical free” I get more than 60 million hits in .15 seconds. The number one hit, the website “Go Chemical Free“, assures me that a chemical-free diet could help eliminate autism.
HANNOVER, Germany – Like many startups, Andreas Stutz said it was tough to get funding when he was shopping the Friendlyway concept.
__PB: __Writing is a difficult business, at least for me, and I have long been searching for a way to get out of it. The result: my new diabolical master plan, a book that readers will write for me. It’s called Write This Book! and it should be available in a year or so.
The banner states that the enforcement action was a collaborative effort between the FBI, US Postal Inspection Service, the criminal division of the IRS, the Department of Justice’s child exploitation and obscenity division, as well as attorneys general from Arizona, California, and Texas.
The site offers users the choice of submitting ideas on any subject they choose, or on a pre-selected group of top issues that include: accountability in education; energy and gas prices; healthcare reform; the economy; judicial nominations; national security and “protecting American values.”
Who Will Like It? Who wouldn’t like shooting wooden discs across a table? This is one of those games that you’ll get out for a quick filler and then end up playing the rest of the night.
“Most Americans allow the mobile apps and web sites to manage their clouds on their behalf, and have very little understanding of what’s happening in the background. I suspect that won’t change anytime soon,” Linthicum tells FOXBusiness.com.
An iPhone’s home button—with its embedded fingerprint sensor—is paired to a phone at the factory. Thanks to entropy, sometimes home buttons break; sometimes they get replaced when users swap out a shattered screen. When you replace an original home button with a different one, iOS detects the hardware change. And it shuts down Touch ID completely (which is a good security feature). Only Apple has the tech to make the complete transplant—remapping the sensor to keep Touch ID valid. But for some, the loss of Touch ID is worth an otherwise functioning phone. Lots of people don’t live anywhere near an Apple store—so they go to a local shop or they do the repair on their own.
You can start off with a couple of Orbs (the two speaker kit is $240) and add to them later. The Mod2, for instance, is simply two pairs of Orbs on custom stands. What we love, though, is the look of the things. The speakers are decidedly retro. The white ones would look at home in the Moloko Milk Bar, and the brushed silver ones look almost exactly the same as a real retro pair of speakers I found in the attic when I moved into my current apartment (the previous owners came back to collect them, sadly, along with the stack of rare 45s that was with them).
“We don’t want to make our network one that works well for one segment and turns off whole other segments,” Pincus says. “I can’t tell you we’re never going to piss off some segment of our users. (But) we’re trying to create enough sandboxes and segment enough so that people can express themselves and not be offensive to others.”
For classroom teachers, there are special sections on Science and Health that offer an even wider choice of materials. Science is divided up into elementary and middle school levels with virtual labs, videos, reading passages, simulations and more. Health is divided up into different grade levels, since each age group is naturally concerned with different health-related issues.
A thoughtful educator who admits to mixed feelings about blocking the site, Trask says he has never tried to punish kids for their MySpace use – he just wants parents to know about it. His junior high students are at the youngest end of MySpace’s user base. “My goal is to let parents know, ‘Guess what, this is out there. And your child may be on there.'”
Auction searches within the client are more dynamic than on the website. When you adjust your query, the item listings in the lower half of the window update immediately. The client also suggests a list of associated keywords that might broaden each search.
What worries both Steffen and Seltzer is a provision in the bill that designates as “willful” any violation of a trademark committed in conjunction with false domain registration. Willful violations allow a court to level up to a $150,000 statutory fine.
The cyborg consumer, Giesler said, is one that uses several different technologies – from cell phones to Viagra – and is highly connected, technically and socially.
