A GCHQ investigation revealed that ISIS hackers intercepted top secret emails from the British government, according to Mirror. Little information was revealed, except that ISIS apparently targeted information held by several of David Cameron’s most senior ministers, including Home Secretary Theresa May, possibly discovering events where government figures or British Royal Family members were expected to be in attendance. Mirror further reported that a ringleader of the alleged plot was killed by a drone strike.
Recently I tracked him down and asked him some questions, about what path he took to end up in this job he loves so much. I wanted to know for me, but also for my sons, and other teens out there, who dream of having music be a part of their future plans.
It’s such a well made model, with the perfect amount of detail for its scale, and comes with beautifully crafted minifigs of Doc Brown and Marty from all three films, as well a skateboard and a hoverboard! However, the best thing is that the designer, Masashi Togami, has actually included the parts to build all three versions of the Delorean too – the ‘regular’ one from the original movie, the flying version from part II and the horse-drawn/train-propelled one from the final film. There’s no word as to whether Lego’s version of the model will include all the parts need for all three Deloreans as yet, or indeed how much it will cost, but it should be in the shops by the middle of 2013.
Words in the technology domain get shortened and decapitalized the more they enter common usage, as well. The words homepage, online, email, website, and (we)blog started out as Home page, on-line, E-mail (from Electronic Mail), Web site, and Web log. The web (or Web) itself is a shortening of World Wide Web, which is also shortened as WWW.
I don’t mean to be curmudgeonly, but … this is not a lifestyle, not even for me and qDot and Violet and whoever else. It’s a portion – sometimes a big portion – of our lives. That doesn’t make it a replacement for relationships outside the net, or a crutch, or even a nirvana we never want to leave.
As the saga of the Silk Road has unfolded over the last four years, everyone has had an opinion about the unprecedented, billion-dollar online narcotics bazaar, from press to politicians to prosecutors. Even the pseudonymous mastermind of the site, the Dread Pirate Roberts, gave an interview and posted many thousands of words to the Silk Road’s users forum. The one voice that’s been missing, however, is that of Ross Ulbricht, the 30-year-old Texan accused of actually running the site from behind the Dread Pirate Roberts mask.
Michel Gondry sneaks his upcoming film for the Sundance crowd. It’s about a man who sets out to recreate the films he accidentally destroyed. Anyone who misses Be Kind Rewind in Park City can watch Mos Def and Jack Black do their thing in theaters beginning Feb. 22.
An increase in e-commerce deliveries lifted U.S. package revenue by 8% to $9.7 billion, and UPS said it will continue to invest in expanding its network as online orders grow.

“We’re here today to deliver the world’s fastest personal computer,” he announced nonchalantly. “It’s amazing.”
Another leading company, DoorDash, uses its data for that kind of optimization as well—for its users and maybe more interestingly for the delivery runners, which the company calls dashers. “You want to make sure the customer gets the food at the time they expect. You want to get it at the best quality from the merchant,” says Rajat Shroff, DoorDash’s VP of product. “And we want to make sure the dashers don’t waste their time waiting around.” So its algorithms do load balancing based on dasher location, delivery address, and restaurant speed. “Zero wait time. That’s what the prediction algorithms are trying to do,” Shroff says.
In 1998, San Francisco 49ers running back Garrison Hearst – the first person to be featured on the video game’s cover other than famed announcer John Madden — suffered a serious injury the next season. The same thing happened to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper in 2001, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick in 2003 and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb in 2005.
The company hires people like Amir Michael, who build servers. It employs engineers like Raghu Murthy, who build software capable of juggling data across tens of thousands of machines. And it nabs minds like Adams, who joined the social networking giant in 2009.
One money exchanger in Northern Ireland revealed that “Segvec” routinely had packages sent to a Tokyo remailer, who forwarded them to a “Stephen Ceres” in Miami.

A storm of withdrawals during one five-minute period yielded the cardholder $8,000 in cash.
