The non-fictionalized version of Louis C.K. may find himself saying “Thank you” more than “I’m sorry” pretty soon, though. He was nominated for seven Emmys last month: three for acting, writing and directing Louie and another four for his comedy special Live at the Beacon Theater, which he began selling through his website for $5 earlier this year.
Remember what we said a minute ago about Hall H being awfully quiet on Saturday? Well, one of the things scheduled to make a little noise in that hallowed hall is a panel on Deadpool 2. Wait, Deadpool 2? Didn’t that already come out? Yes, it did. Which is why this panel is interesting. Why would the franchise’s corporate parents at Fox grab a slot in Comic-Con’s biggest room on its biggest day to plug the home release of a movie it’s already released? Moreover, why would it do so and then not announce who’s participating? (The Comic-Con website still doesn’t have any details listed.) Call it a hunch, but we’re wondering if Ryan Reynolds and company might use the stage time to tease the allegedly forthcoming X-Force movie](http://ew.com/movies/2018/05/29/drew-goddard-x-force-future-deadpool-2-scene/) from writer-director Drew Goddard. Again, it’s just a hunch, but considering what a favorite the Merc with a Mouth is with fans, it would bring the house down if they pulled it off.
Blake said shortly afterwards he caught Anderson trying to remotely crack into one of his computers. Blake said he saw Anderson copying files. He shut the machine down and called the police, who seized Anderson’s computer.
Such trend-spotting may sound like fodder for psychics and fashion police, but it’s also key intelligence for researchers at Getty Images (GETY), who analyze trends and fads to predict what images will sell to which markets in the next two years.
When I broke into my neighbor’s home earlier this week, I didn’t use any cat burglar skills. I don’t know how to pick locks. I’m not even sure how to use a crowbar. It turns out all anyone needs to invade a friend’s apartment is an off switch for their conscience and an iPhone.
“It does not make sense to try and criminalize (ticket scalping),” said Marc Margot, former Island Records chief and chairman-elect of the Resale Rights Society, which was announced Tuesday. “On the other hand, there are not only real issues of consumer protection here, (but) it is unacceptable that not a penny of the estimated 200 million pounds in (annual) transactions generated by the resale of concert tickets in the U.K. is returned to the investors in the live-music industry.”
Theranos has painted the medical community’s thirst for data as a conspiracy-fueled publicity smear campaign, like a health care version of truthers or birthers—These agitators are really just moles for the company’s competitors, digging for proprietary secrets. Yes, the company has every right to protect its secrets, but it has always seemed strange to make the case that showing primary data would give competitors the edge they need to hack apart Theranos’ black box.
Sandblad also said he is still waiting for Microsoft to fix the last vulnerability he reported to the company.
Pipex is owned by UUNET, and according to statistics compiled by spam fighting and tracking sites SpamCop and SpamHaus, more spam gets spewed through UUNET than from all the other Internet service providers combined.
IHMC Robotics’ robot traverses a pile of rubble at the DARPA Robotics Challenge. Photo by Signe Brewster.DARPA infused the competition with significant funding, including nearly $100 million for the robots’ development and an $11 million contract awarded to Boston Dynamics to build Atlas robots, which teams could use instead of building their own hardware. The winning team was awarded $2 million. Second and third place took home $1 million and $500,000, respectively.
The game is free to download, but all of its unlockable features will cost in-game coins, which can be purchased with real money. You can spend those coins to dress your candidate of choice up like a boxer or karate master, or to buy new weapons which range from rubber chickens to lightsabers.
And judging by the steady pace of dot-com failures this year, not even the Internet’s pre-eminent domain is enjoying much cachet lately.
Hackers like dodi have come out and said that the current war isn’t just against Israeli, but the U.S. as well. But Arab activists such as Mustapha Merza believe the American media continues to portray Arabs as terrorist aggressors, even in cyberspace.
2002: Mozilla 1.0 is released. The first major milestone for the open source browser doesn’t do much to impress users or shake loose Microsoft’s crown. However, it proves to the world that free software can succeed not just in the server room, but also on the desktop.
“Moderators on power trips, unpopular thinking, and difference of opinions drive a lot of the moderation out there…. Sure there is spam and ignorant comments, but a large percentage are just people making cheesy jokes, or disagreeing with the crowd.”
But his comments a few days after the terrorist attack, blaming the event on “judges who uphold church-state separation, abortion rights activists, gay people, civil liberties activists and others who are ‘trying to secularize America,'” were perhaps the most widely reviled. (Falwell later apologized for his comments.)
Similarly, the Mayak nuclear fuel reprocessing facility in Chelyabinsk Oblast is also threatened by the flames, as is a nuclear research center in Sarov, which was formerly known as the secret town Arzamas-16. If any of the structures succumb, then radionuclides could be spread widely afield, generating new zones of radioactive pollution and displacing the population of those areas.
Not yet, he admitted, but he won’t content himself with such a retro fashion accessory for long. This summer, he plans to make a new one from a Compaq iPaq Pocket PC that will be fully Flash-driven, with video and motion graphics. “That’ll be my Version 2,” he said.
“Your typical businessperson is much more likely to be impressed by IBM’s support of Linux than by SCO’s claims,” Raymond said.
Dave Pickens, an engineer and parent of three children, got the school website up and running and donated a server to the school himself.
The Audiogalaxy settlement is ominous because it shows the power of a legal ruling against a technology company. But it does little to stymie the millions of users connected to decentralized systems like Kazaa and Morpheus.
(Fans of Adobe and its Flash platform are likely to be disappointed, since Apple’s support for Flash has been anemic at best, and is nonexistent in iTunes LP and iTunes Extras.)
The problem was that StackOverflow used a URL scheme which paginates content using the dynamic
?page=n format. Now you might assume, as Atwood did, that the Google bots could figure this out (after all, probably at least half the web is using the same format), but for whatever reason the Google bots weren’t following these URLs.
“There was a great deal of interest in these capabilities,” In-Q-Tel’s president said of the picture-monitoring effort. “Because more and more of what is on the Internet is in visual form, the ability to search on those materials is important and getting more important all the time.”
Errol Morris’ website is back after a day offline, but the several unseen Switch ads he made for Apple are gone.
Since the early 1990s, interrupting the flow of money from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and elsewhere to al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other militant Islamic groups in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries has been a major objective of U.S. and allied intelligence agencies.
To get an Alipay ID, Liu had to enter his cell phone number and scan his national ID card. He did so reflexively. Alipay had built a reputation for reliability, and compared to going to a bank managed with slothlike indifference and zero attention to customer service, signing up for Alipay was almost fun. With just a few clicks he was in. Alipay’s slogan summed up the experience: “Trust makes it simple.”
