Michael Weisman may not be a household name in his own hometown, but to people in the Netherlands, he is a TV star.
Its print guides may be iconic, but Zagat hasn’t sat on its hands in the 21st century, either. It has a popular website offering free and subscription content, and paid “Zagat to Go” applications for the major smartphone platforms and iPad. It has partnered with FourSquare to do check-ins and pull in reviews and comments about local restaurants, and with OpenTable to book reservations. Zagat’s mobile apps use location services and augmented reality components, and generally do almost everything you’d want a mobile recommendation application to do.

Myspace, the social network that dominated the early part of this century, has risen from the ashes. Or at least, that’s the plan, as Myspace’s new website emerges from beta along with a new mobile app.
“Canonical needs to make money, and after dropping support for Gnome, support for KDE couldn’t be far behind,” read a blog post from Jonathan Riddell, lead developer for Kubuntu, referring to the two desktop interfaces dropped from the Ubuntu project. “Then I got e-mails from companies, governments, and individuals saying they depend on it, use it every day for themselves, their clients and their families.

This is the point where we all expected that you can flip, twist and rotate the robot and voila! You’d have a car! But this is not the case. To go from the robot to the vehicle, you have to disassemble everything and start from scratch with a separate set of directions. Definitely not what we expected for Transformers! Both the kids and the parents were disappointed in this, but our son took it in stride.
This couldn’t come at a better time for Apple, as the company has seemingly done a good job with upselling customers to the iPhone 7 Plus with the new dual-camera system, which is one of the larger model’s headline selling features. The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is Apple’s most direct competitor to Samsung’s 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 7, and the two companies dominate the space for premium phones and phablets.

Mike Pfeffer, a 26-year-old IT professional, was thinking about buying a Kindle, Amazon’s pricey new digital book reader, but he wanted to look at the screen and touch the buttons before shelling out $359 for it.
CT scanners create a 3-D image that can be rotated to give screeners a better look. Suspicious bags can be pulled aside and opened by screeners.
GeoJSON has a steep learning curve, though Exversion’s Marianne Bullotti assured me that it’s worth the ascent. From personal experience, every GIS will treat you to a heavy headache to map ratio. In either case, messing with the PLUTO data isn’t for noobs, but it’s the new standard if you’re interested in looking seriously at how a city uses its space.
San Diego consistently ranks somewhere between fourth and eighth on Forbes annual lists of the most wired American cities. As home to wireless companies Qualcomm and Kyocera, as well as a host of defense industries, residents here have long relied on Wi-Fi, text-messaging, a couple of Fry’s stores and family cell phone plans.
But executives at the band’s label, Capitol Records, freak out, and the ensuing ruckus winds up in The Wall Street Journal and on the cover of Red Herring. Eventually the MP3s are allowed to stay online, but to Rogers, the whole fight is ridiculous: Why would a label get in the way of its own artist?
