One of these startups is Blockchain, the brainchild of Ben Reeves. After getting Armstrong’s breakup email, Reeves resolved to build Blockchain into more than just a data-gathering site. Like Armstrong, he saw the bitcoin wallet as a platform for financial services. But Reeves didn’t want Blockchain to have access to its customers’ bitcoins. So he hacked an ingenious wallet that can be accessed from a browser or a mobile phone but leaves the critical private key on the user’s computer. Blockchain can never lose your bitcoins. However, if you forget your password, it can’t find them for you either. None of the Valley’s investors wanted anything to do with Reeves.
The other photo handed out by Biscardi at the press conference purportedly shows the mouth and tongue of the dead creature discovered by Whitton and Dyer, below.
The RIAA claims that the re-runs “will be readily subject to editing and manipulation by any reasonably tech-savvy individual.”
The Klingons were another sticking point: I was cool with showing this rogue gang of Kahless-worshippers but when the rest of the house leadership Skypes in to T’Kuvma’s sarcophagus ship I was disappointed. Enterprise tried to give the makeup and characterization changes of past Klingons some kind of sense, but I felt like even that explanation couldn’t remotely cover for why all these Klingons looked different. At least they were completely subtitled—that I really dug.
And, props to Gizmag who has a great article on all the technical breakdown information you need.

In the end we loved our time in D.C. Despite the fact that the sniper kept us indoors for six weeks that fall, we spent every weekend exploring museums, fairs, festivals and exhibits. We had been told we would be in D.C. for two years, so when we got word that they were sending us to Utah a year early, we had mixed feelings. There was so much left to do and explore.
We bought two strings of 20-LED micro lights from our local party supply store. These were easily clear-taped to the front of the poster. The battery packs were taped to the back. These lights were lightweight and didn’t create a burden on my husband and kids who had to fight the crowds on the monorail to get to the various viewing locations.
Basically, the box will still be doing its regular job of pushing through your favorite video, but instead of just streaming it to your specified hardware (like your PC notebook) via the web, it will actually be available on the web.
One client, after his girlfriend was a no-show, asked Roxanne to join him for dinner on his rooftop. “I was like, ‘No, I’m going to leave,’ she says. ‘This is too much.’”
Bungie’s official website was updated recently with a post and image teasing a new game from the Halo creators.
Needham said a printing revolution might have occurred 20 years after Gutenberg is credited with inventing moveable type.
For Gomez, 43, skip tracing is as much about stalking and capturing elusive prey as it is about getting paid. Today much of that hunting is done digitally, and Gomez has made an art of combing through cyberspace and finding the status updates, financial records, and location blips that virtually everyone leaves behind in the modern age. Gomez’s digital background stretches back to childhood, when her parents, both IBM engineers, insisted that the 10-year-old Michelle build a computer from scratch. “I even had to do my own soldering,” she remembers. The experience laid a foundation for the skills that have made her so good at finding people. “Profiling a subject is a lot like constructing a motherboard,” Gomez says. “You have to see connections that are invisible to other people by filling the spaces between with information.”
A: National statistics show that a child is reported missing every 8 seconds in America, or about 800,000 per year. There is no greater fear for parents than their child being missing, whether because they are lost or abducted. The CATS GPS tracking and location devices are the best solution available to keep children from becoming missing.
Unknown to Campbell, a cyber thief who went by the nick “desertmack” had gained access to his e-mail account and had been watching him for weeks. The Mexico wedding was the break desertmack needed. He’d been hoping a little tequila and sunshine would distract Campbell from obsessively checking his brokerage account long enough to steal the money and send it to Brussels, where an accomplice would withdraw it.
In September 16, 2011, an anime fan posted a math question to the online bulletin board 4chan about the cult classic television series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Season one of the show, which involves time travel, had originally aired in nonchronological order, and a re-broadcast and a DVD version had each further rearranged the episodes. Fans were arguing online about the best order to watch the episodes, and the 4chan poster wondered: If viewers wanted to see the series in every possible order, what is the shortest list of episodes they’d have to watch?
With Steampunk Week winding down here at GeekMom, those who still want to get their steampunk geek on have a place to go in April:
In what ways could popular artists sell out in the Time Before Social Media? Here are some hazily remembered examples for the Millennials to pore over, saucer-eyed: licensing your music or body or face for an advertisement; displaying unironic joy in your own music video; touring with the Smashing Pumpkins; publicly flaunting the material advantages of fame; charging more than a nominal fee for a performance; announcing an album release date at an awards show; acting in pretty much any television show; and—a more current example—creating a website in your own name. (This is why, to this day, I have refused to pay what I assume is a reasonable fee to register johnmagary.biz.) In a world that, to my hopeful, idiotic young eyes, favored the good and right to triumph over the cynical and bad, these were the boundaries for artists as I understood them.
You’ll notice I mentioned seven different organizations involved, each bringing their particular areas of expertise to bear. By the time I joined the project, the game was about a week away from launch, so I wasn’t able to see for myself the division of labor in these stages – so I asked both Juxt and No Mimes about the division of responsibilities between the main three companies. According to the two companies, Juxt and No Mimes collectively did the creative heavy lifting, partnering to draw the broad creative strokes of the experience. No Mimes wrote the story details and alternate reality game through design documents, scripts, asset lists, and other reference materials. No Mimes also produced the game’s audio and video elements, conducted the live events, provided character-to-player interaction, voiced the characters in real time, monitored the community, and made the occasional on-the-fly redesign. Juxt provided the rest of the creative production, technical development, and general creative oversight. Cisco signed off on all strategic and creative decisions. Bill Fleig, Director of Project Management at Juxt, said about Cisco “a really great client to work with, willing to push boundaries, but at the same time staying very responsible to their audience.”
Earth observation satellites are usually placed in what are called sun-synchronous orbits (SSO). These are special LEO orbits that are designed to maintain the same angle between the Sun, satellite, and a spot on the ground by using the Earth’s gravitational field to rotate the satellite’s orbit around the Earth at the same rate the Earth rotates around the Sun. This allows for consistent lighting and overflight times for the places on the ground the satellite is observing, as well as consistent illumination of the satellite’s solar panels. To accomplish this, the satellite needs to be placed into a precise inclination and matching altitude as shown in this graph.
Less than two weeks later, Goldwater announced a surprising shift in direction. “Otto will have their company launch on Tuesday of next week,” he wrote to Hill on May 12. “[…] They are filming some video of self-driving trucks in Nevada tomorrow for the launch on Tuesday (there is someone in the truck [with] a kill switch.) The filming is being done up in Reno.”
“We went out and raised roughly $6 million and the project has been on for roughly two years,” said Manwani.
The Apple I is arguably the most sought-after vintage PC on the market. Only 50 are estimated to exist, and they rarely go on sale.
For the millions of television viewers who tune in to the first presidential debate in Miami Thursday night, the event will probably seem scripted, familiar and maybe even cordial. And for good reason. The Republican and Democratic parties worked out detailed ground rules, all but promising that the televised debates will be uneventful.
King says the CIA finds his self-described “book” tasteless and claims that his job has been repeatedly imperiled by his out-of-office jokes.
On a couple of occasions, the mock-ups have been reported in the media as leaks from Apple’s secretive design department. Conge recalled the occasion when one particularly outrageous design showed up on a Mac rumor site, touted as a new Apple machine.
Like we saw in the beta, the apps show up in a bottom bar like a tray. You can use a widget inside the tray to pause Pandora while checking your mail.
“In some cities, these areas are quite well mapped and quite well monitored. In Sao Paulo in Brazil, for example, they have a very big program. All of the data has been collected, it’s online, it’s monitored regularly – but that’s unusual, there are many many cities where people don’t know at all what the situation is.”
However, the search for wreckage has focused on Texas, where Gov. Rick Perry said 33 counties a 28,000-square-mile area from north of Dallas all the way to the Gulf Coast had reported debris. That amounts to about 10 percent of Texas’ land area, or more than all of West Virginia.
Hitting the pavement: Come snow or freezing temperatures, Brian W. Vaszily isn’t going home until he’s sold 4,000 copies of his first novel: Beyond Stone and Steel: A Memorial to the September 11, 2001 Victims.
It’s not the first time that investors have bought into even the hokiest of rumors that somebody – Facebook, Google, Verizon, Yahoo, really anybody – might actually be interested in acquiring the beleaguered company. And there are always a couple of newsmakers ready to throw fuel on the fire.
