IBM (NYSE:IBM) says it will continue to aggressively invest in growth areas, despite suffering sixteen straight quarters of declining revenue.
Circulating throughout Park City this week are three daily printed newsletters, each of which is produced by an Internet movie news site. The three newsletters, published by Indiewire, Inside and Roughcut.com, seem to be everywhere – in theater lobbies, at coffeehouses, in the hands of filmgoers who wait in line for their next screening.
Federal records show that Otto’s 18-wheelers are covering fewer miles than ever before. Key engineers have been reassigned to its self-driving car program. And ambitious plans for pilot projects across the nation have been delayed or cancelled. Perhaps most telling, emails obtained under public records legislation suggest that one month before Otto emerged from stealth, Levandowski was already envisaging its future as an autonomous urban taxi service.
There’s no legal “right” to copy the copyrighted music on a CD onto a CD-R. However, burning a copy of CD onto a CD-R, or transferring a copy onto your computer hard drive or your portable music player, won’t usually raise concerns so long as:
2. Push strongly off the dock. Be careful not to lean on the handlebars. That will result in a hilarious, but pathetic, nosedive.
The HomePod speaker unveiled at a conference for software programmers Monday is similar to devices that rivals Amazon and Google have already been selling, though Apple says it’s giving more emphasis to sound quality, not just smarts. It’s no surprise, but there’s integration with the Apple Music online subscription.
After becoming acquainted with the curmudgeonly talking dodo who lives with Phil, Nate sets out on a trip with her. The story takes place in 1928, so Phil and Nate fly in a biplane (a “Sopwith Platypus,” in a fine joke that will go over most kids’ heads) to Arabia, where they must assist in the rebirth of a phoenix, an event that takes place only once every 500 years. Naturally, there are complications along the way, including a pair of gremlins (one of whom becomes a major character) on the plane and Phil being kidnapped by Bedouins.
A world without net neutrality might end up meaning that you have to pay more to access the internet content that you want. But it also might crush innovation.

Third, the Obama Administration also has set aside just over $1 billion for the NextGen Air Traffic Control system, which will – eventually – replace a system built upon World War II-era technology. That amount is an increase of roughly 30 percent over last year’s budget. It would be difficult to overstate the need for this upgrade; the system we’re using now is the airborne equivalent of building new roads to meet the needs of horse-drawn buggies. You can blame this antiquated system for much of the inefficiency in air traffic, and if it isn’t fixed, the Federal Aviation Administration warns we’ll be gridlocked by 2015. NextGen is an ongoing attempt to revolutionize, and hopefully introduce some sensibility to, the air traffic control system. It has a long way to go before it becomes the new standard, but hopefully this infusion of funds will speed things up some.
These folks may have missed out on the shrimp-and-caviar receptions at the nearby Democratic shindigs, but somehow, you get the impression they had a lot more fun.
I got a pretty nice surprise yesterday morning; Laelaps was listed as one of the “Top 30 Science Blogs” by the Times science magazine Eureka! I was proud to see this blog featured alongside those of Scicurious, Ed, Carl, David, Sheril, Bora, and many of the others who made the list. Even better, Eureka wants to expand the list to include the top 100 science blogs, so be sure to send in your nominations for the best of the best to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Best blogs” in the subject line.
Windows not closing the door on Java: Microsoft said it would support Sun Microsystems’ Java programming language in the Windows operating system nine months longer than first planned, to give customers more time to make the transition between the software platforms.
As you roll the dice and move your detective around the board, your goal is to land on the spot where you believe the thief is standing and press the Arrest button. You enter the building number followed by the two digit number where you believe the thief is standing. If he’s on the street, you enter the three digit number after pressing Arrest.
Last year I posted about the online seismic-reflection image collection website Virtual Seismic Atlas. They now have 410 individual images and are always getting more (in fact, if you have access to images that could be released to the public, they are always looking for data donors).
In the end, Coyer says, internet companies actually have a financial interest in giving users more options. “The alternative is more regulation,” she says. Companies may or may not warm to the task of getting more aggressive about hate speech. But you can always count on them to not want the government to tell them what to do.
