Comcast first announced Gigabit Pro earlier this year, promising that it will offer either Gigabit Pro fiber connections or a one gigabit connection over traditional cable to most of its US customers by the end of the year. The announcement promised that the service would be available in Atlanta in May. That hasn’t happened yet, but the new pricing page suggests that even if Comcast’s 2gbps service is massively delayed and prohibitively expensive for typical consumers, it’s at least not dead, either.
Shortly after the law went into effect, the Arizona Department of Corrections scoured the Internet and informed prisoners whose names appeared on websites that the information had to be removed within three weeks or they could face criminal charges.
Dallas Mavericks owner and television personality Mark Cuban also backed Clinton last week, calling her campaign chairman John Podesta on the night she accepted her nomination to say he was ready to support the former secretary of state.
It can be hard to keep porn sites straight, since so many of them sound like parodies to begin with, and mostly seem to follow the same basic rubric. Pornhub stands out, though, as not just the biggest adult site in the world, but one of the biggest sites over all.
But there is a downside. Unlike the web, which is decentralized, IFTTT is a single company. One that could go away, or change its terms of service. This has become a real problem for app developers in recent years, as crucial cloud services like Facebook’s Parse and PayPal’s StackMob have shut down.
Critics accuse the EPA of ignoring expert advice and basing their decision on an abstract model of perchlorate exposure, rather than existing human data.
Snyder: I watched it three or four times. I enjoyed the film, but didn’t use it as a learning tool. What it mostly did was validate Frank’s aesthetic in the commercial realm. After that movie, the studio could understand that a Frank Miller movie was a viable idea.
Apple has long been a brand respected for excellent customer service and rock-solid industrial design. Wired.com believes that Apple should do the following in order to retain the respectability of its brand and loyalty of customers:
This release adds a new Style Editor to Firefox’s developer toolkit. The Style Editor offers a two-pane view for browsing all of a webpage’s styles, both inline and external stylesheets. The right-hand pane displays the styles as plain text (with syntax highlighting), while the left pane shows the list of all your style sources. Make changes to the stylesheet and your changes are reflected on the webpage in real time. When you’ve got things looking the way you’d like you can then save the modified stylesheet.
Netflix garnered the second-most Emmy nominations of any network. Only cable juggernaut HBO racked up more, with 110 nods. Streaming rival Hulu picked up 18 nominations, while Amazon snagged 16.
Metadata, or information in a file that tells what a file is about, isn’t a new idea. Web pages have meta tags that describe the content on a page; for instance, The New York Times website might have a tag that describes it as an online newspaper.
Caverly’s attorney told Threat Level that his client wrote the code himself. It instructed the ATMs to dispense cash without creating a record of the transactions.
The Japanese billionaire met separately with the Berkshire Hathaway Inc. boss and Mr. Malone, whose Liberty Broadband Corp. is one of Charter Communications Inc.’s biggest investors, this week at an annual gathering of CEOs in Sun Valley, Idaho, the people said.
Nimble makes charging accessories. As early as next year, the company will expand its product line to include more types of accessories. But for now, the founders say they’re starting with what they, as ex-Mophie folks, know best: charging. At launch, Nimble is selling two wireless charging pads, a charging stand, a travel wall charger, and four portable charging batteries. The battery line includes 10k, 13k, 20k, and 26k mAh models.
How hard could it be? DIY modders around the world are designing and sharing rogue alternatives to brand name electronics. For those with curiosity, diligence and a rebel’s spirit, it’s quite possible to get your hands on a unique MP3 player and avoid selling your soul to tech conformity.
The 50-50 joint operation, one of the first to make color thin-film transistor displays, faces rising competition from low-cost South Korean and Taiwanese producers who are steadily driving Japanese firms out of commodity-type personal computer displays into smaller, more expensive panels.
Another concern is page load times. Because WOFF has built-in compression, adding extra WOFF fonts to your pages shouldn’t slow them down as much as a traditional OpenType or TrueType font file.
It’s also the limitations that the game places on you: because you only have so many rounds and so many workers, you can’t do everything. You can raise a few of each animal, but then you may not get the bonus points for having, say, a whole bunch of pigs. But if you don’t get the minimum of 4 of each type of animal, it’ll cost you points. So do you make up for that by building some great buildings or expanding your farm? Or do you go after all those animals, and skimp on the building? Much of this will also be determined by what your opponent is doing, because if they take all the cows, then you’ll just have to find some other way to make up those lost points.
People who buy the EE savings bonds using the new “TreasuryDirect” option being offered by the government wouldn’t receive a paper savings bond. Instead, the bond would exist in electronic form. Last year, the government offered people the same option to buy inflation-indexed savings bonds.
That’s the idea behind MyLifeBits, a new Microsoft research project that aims to record the essence of a person’s life on computer disks: every photograph snapped, home movie filmed, Web page browsed, e-mail scribbled, phone call made or bill paid.
Surgeons typically balk at performing gastric bypass on someone so young, but doctors diagnosed her with psuedotumor cerebri and obstructive sleep apnea caused by morbid obesity, so her doctor agreed to do the surgery.
But even for experts, the science behind the demo will be difficult to evaluate simply by watching it on TV.
But it’s easy to see why the business world would love it, if not for the cool effects and customization it can bring to their products, then for the data it provides about their customers. Imagine Amazon tailoring its clothing recommendations to include not only what a customer might like, but what is most likely to fit well. Or perhaps, by looking at the data, a clothing manufacturer would completely overhaul its sizing to better fit its target demographic. O’Farrell wants to be the purveyor of that data.
Not only is this liberation good for the women, it’s good for the fans. “We know what the fans want,” she says. “Community has always been a part of our culture. A website is basically an extension of a fan club – it’s a community approach that lets fans and performers get as close as possible, without any middlemen.”
As a point of contention between the rights of copyright holders and the rights of the public, “deep linking” seemed to go away for the past two years, after a federal judge declared it kosher.
