BH: They were taking about immigration in their story and they referenced the film. After three phone calls I finally talked to the editor there. He was like, “ I just don’t know how this would happen. I have no idea how it happened.”
“While we appreciate the enthusiasm for the Series that appears to have inspired your creation of this device, we are also concerned that your iron throne dock will infringe on HBO’s copyright in the Iron Throne,” says the letter.
Wired: Unlike the Asian market, you can buy a case with different varieties—and there are plenty of really good types to choose from.
The app is free and available in Google Play.
Among the technology the office would research is “equipment for particular use in counterterrorism, including devices and technologies to disable terrorist devices.” According to Smith’s aide, terrorist devices “could be anything from a bomb to a computer.” The group is also tasked with researching better “investigative and forensic technologies,” including electronic surveillance methods.
Q: It sounds like it’s a way of involving a lot of people and de-professionalizing art venues.
Malamud became an underground celebrity among policy wonks in DC; among his fans was then-Congressman Ed Markey, who wanted to demo the internet at a hearing. Malamud helped out, a process that involved installing a Russian satellite dish on the roof of the Rayburn building. Not long after, an aide to then-President Clinton asked if Malamud could help open an internet connection to the White House for a presidential event. It had never been done. Malamud went to the roof of the National Press Club, found a clear line-of-sight to the White House, and ran an Ethernet cable from the window in his office to to a wireless bridge beaming bits to the White House lawn.
In May, the EU somehow managed to induce Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and YouTube to agree to delete what it calls “illegal, online hate speech” from their sites within 24 hours of being notified. Keep in mind that there is no such distinction between hate speech and free speech in the U.S.
Your first backup will take a while, so it’s best to do it while charging overnight. Meem isn’t fast: It has a data-transfer speed of a gig every six minutes, so a 16-gig load takes more than an hour and a half. It appears to back up files in chronological order, so the last videos you shot may not make it to the Meem if its capacity fills up. Once the initial heavy lifting has been done, it gets much quicker: The system just adds new files on subsequent backups.
The complaint alleges that at least two of Dropbox’s competitors, SpiderOak and Wuala, make security promises similiar to those of Dropbox, but actually can’t get at the data because they don’t hold the encryption keys. That means those services have to spend more on storage, because they can’t detect duplicate files stored by different users. That, according to the complaint, lets Dropbox promise total security without paying the costs, while putting its competitors at a disadvantage. (SpiderOak does do de-duping within each user’s account to save user’s space, the company says)
Before Steve Bannon was Donald Trump’s campaign advisor, a right-wing media mogul, or a conservative Hollywood documentarian, he helped a group of climate scientists steer a controversial experiment in the Arizona desert back from financial chaos. Twenty-five years ago, a New Agey-experiment called Biosphere 2 set out to recreate life on another planet with eight people locked in a giant glass habitat. But it ended bitterly with allegations of financial fraud, scientific goof-ups, and a power struggle outside the dome.
No, it’s not an ad for Levitra. It’s an ad for Windows XP. Watching it 10 years later – on the anniversary of the day Microsoft released the OS – it’s more than an ad. It’s an oracle. In fact, it’s amazing how precisely Microsoft predicted the future of computing in its cheesy Windows XP promotional materials.
The website of SCO, a small software maker based in Utah, has been shut down for more than a week after being hit by MyDoom. SCO has drawn the ire of advocates of Linux, the freely available operating system, for claiming to own the copyright on some parts of Linux and demanding licensing fees from users.
“We were really focused on identifying the issue and showing there was a systemic problem,” says Christopher Famighetti, a voting rights researcher and one of the authors of the study. Famighetti and his team stopped short of prescribing a reason for that imbalance, which would have required analyzing how each district allocated resources.
For the vendor, there’s an economic balancing act: how much more will your users be annoyed by unpatched software than they will be by the patch, and is that reduction in annoyance worth the cost of patching?
Fidel Salinas, a 28-year-old with ties to Anonymous, faced what may be the most schizophrenic hacking prosecution of all time: In 2012, he was charged with 44 felony counts of computer fraud and abuse, each one carrying a potential 10-year prison sentence. (Salinas claims that the 440 years of prison time was intended to coerce him into hacking targets on behalf of the FBI, which he refused to do.)
Fanatics for the Danger Sidekick are about to get a treat. Engadget has turned up evidence of the next-gen Sidekick on the FCC’s website. The Sidekick III PV200 looks a whole lot like its predecessor, with somewhat rounder styling. We have no reliable way of knowing exactly what new features to expect on this device, but it does say “1.3 mega pixel” on the camera lens. We’re expecting some sort of announcement out of Danger in the coming weeks.
Initially, they thought they might find malicious code in the software that would allow the results of elections to be changed at will. Computer scientists had long contended that anyone with access to a voting system could slip the code in and no one would know.
In the run-up to the conference, health authorities and researchers were clearly hoping that India would back off from its defensive posture and allow collaborations with European scientists in the West who have gotten further in researching the bug. That doesn’t seem to have happened. But the chorus of competing voices coming out of New Delhi in the wake of the meeting seems to indicate that opinion regarding NDM-1 is not monolithic, and maybe that at least is a hopeful signal.
It’s a good idea for golf players to get used to following the rules, since it looks like the United States Golf Association is not warming up to the devices, either.
There are a few things you can do to give your book a chance. Strong and grabby blurbs are a must. Cover art matters. And you really want to have the book edited as well as you’re able. Once you are satisfied and you select your foreign markets, the book is off to Amazon and will usually be available to readers in less than 24 hours. Then you forget about it and start writing the next thing!
When news of the song reached Black Twitter, the social platform’s most sprawling and influential cultural institution, just about everyone weighed in. The consensus—like many opinions of the singer since Jim DeRogatis’s investigative report from BuzzFeed last July claimed the Kelly was holding a group of women against their will—was a binding of cynicism, denial, and utter shock. Marred by allegations of sexual misconduct, many users across the community did little to hide their disgust at a man who has openly preyed on young women for decades.
LixelPixel said the decision to go public cost him several sleepless nights, but he felt obliged to warn the Mac community before crackers discovered the vulnerability.
If you’re not familiar with aggregators, or if you’re new to Cliqset, this video should help demystify the experience.
