“It’s been well-received,” said Martin Knopp, a director at the Utah Department of Transportation. “We got good feedback from the areas that we tested. We’ve picked up every (car) crash that we could.”
“We’re going to see more value out of the industrial side sooner,” said Jim Lawton, Chief Executive of Rethink Robotics Inc., a U.S. startup that designs hardware and software for automating factory production.
But ads can get expensive, and many web surfers simply refuse to click on them, so being on top of the regular results is key, said Richard Hagerty, chief executive of Impaqt, a Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, search engine consultant who wasn’t at the party.
After The Times published its report Wednesday evening, Facebook severed its ties with Definers. “This type of firm might be normal in Washington, but it’s not the sort of thing I want Facebook associated with,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on a call with reporters Thursday. Both Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg claim they didn’t know Facebook was working with Definers until the The Times published its story. This is not the first time Facebook has employed an opposition research firm. In 2011, the social network hired a public relations firm to plant unflattering stories about Google’s user privacy practices.
All four weapons and their powered-up forms are available from the first level, and you can switch between them at will. But this is where one of the game’s most pressing problems comes into play: The only way to switch weapons is to reach over with your thumb and tap the appropriate icon on the game’s lower touch screen.
When asked if he had ever considered writing a Western, Gibson slightly demurred. But he eventually returned to the question in a later solo post, with an imagined Western straight outta Weirdsville.
The folks from Element Case were kind enough to send me a case to try out, and, after enjoying their case for my 3G, I was anxious to see how their iPhone 4 case fared. It is, I must say, as attractive as it looks in the photos on the website, a fact not true of many products. Like the cases I mentioned before, it covers up the silver antenna, but it more than makes up for that by providing a futuristic-looking and sleek-feeling shell around it. The back plate seems less than useful to me — it might be useful to prevent damage to the back glass if the device were dropped, but it seems too thin to really serve that purpose well (though, having only the one iPhone 4 and a limited budget, I was not willing to actually drop the device to test out the case’s durability). The metal part of the case, however, is very strong — which I verified by (when my iPhone wasn’t actually in the case, of course) throwing it at a concrete sidewalk and hitting it with a hammer.
The print version will continue alongside the free website, which serves up issues dating back to 2005, according to Abrahams.
Scrivener describes itself as “a project management tool for writers.” Which in essence means it’s equal parts note taking tool, scrapbook keeper, document organizer and word processor with a multiple document interface.
Refrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community. Help us delete comments that do not follow these guidelines by marking them offensive. Let’s work together to keep the conversation civil.
The alternative is an unwelcome external dongle or adapter. And, indeed, here we see a docking system before us: a big, ugly one, too. “You can wirelessly recharge your gadgets, so long as you plug them into our adapter dock,” doesn’t quite have the futuristic* je ne sais quoi* we’re looking for.
“There are people who like to listen to books on tape,” said Katie Sacco, an events planner living in San Francisco. “They might want to look at an older audience for this.”
Whether “audio preview” will make any difference to someone whose entire comment reads “rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr” (actual comment from a featured video) is to be seen. I’m guessing most commenters will skip right past it in an effort to get their “first!” comments in there.
That’s a victory for the environmental activists at Greenpeace, who have been pressuring Apple for more than a year to clean up its act and commit to renewable energy.
There are no plug-ins being used, only web standards. So even though Microsoft is making these changes to show off the capabilities of IE9 Beta, the new Bing should work in all modern browsers.
4) Seek to inspire, not just motivate. As social media helps shift power to individual citizens and employees, leadership itself must shift with it. That requires moving from coercive or motivational leadership that uses sticks or carrots to extract performance and allegiance out of people to inspirational leadership that inspires commitment and innovation and hope in people. The most effective 21st-century leaders – those in the C-suite, on the football field and in other realms – understand the value of leaving behind a command-and-control leadership style in favor of a connect-and-collaborate approach. New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin now has two Super Bowl rings to show for his leadership transformation; leaders of truly social enterprises will adopt a similar game plan.
They’re working to move Dropbox forward, which is tricky when Dropbox’s success can be largely attributed to the fact that it’s pretty feature free. It was launched in the Fall of 2008 as what we’re now calling a “lean startup” – a basic service sent out to the masses to be stage tested and tweaked on the go. The enthusiasm for the release was startling. It started with a simple box that users could drop their stuff into so people can access their music, pictures, and documents online and at every connected workstation.
Following the lead of Chris at goodSchist and Callan at NOVA Geoblog, below is a snapshot of global paleogeography during the Late Triassic – *just *before the supercontinent of Pangea broke up – and where I sit right now on that map (small red circle). All images on this post are from Ron Blakey’s (Northern Arizona Univ.) fantastic website of paleogeographic maps and globes.
“I’d love to see another half-dozen professional gay blogs surface that, in theory, would compete with Queerty,” Hauslaib said, “but more importantly, they’d be validating the space and attracting even more ad dollars for everyone.”
