Among the new features is the ability to narrow any search down to spans of a mere five minutes. While it’s not for everyone, if you’re trying to find better ways to filter the fire hose of information that is real-time data, Delicious’ new search tool is an easy way to do it.

Fourteen cows were given to the people of the United States this week by members of a Masai tribe who live in a remote village near Kenya’s border with Tanzania. The tribe sent the cows – the most precious gift they can give – to help America recover from the terrorist attacks nearly nine months ago.
Netflix has pursued set-top box integrations for years to make it easier for cable customers to access its content. Today, people typically have to juggle remotes and switch to alternative streaming devices like the Roku or Apple TV to watch Netflix shows and movies on their TV sets.
One’s a cheerful cartoon adventure. One’s a murder simulator featuring grotesque acts of torture. What new feature could The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Grand Theft Auto V possibly have in common? Does Link finally lose it and clamp jumper cables onto Ganon’s nipples?

Revenue from Google websites, including search advertising, rose 23% to $10.94 billion. Google booked $3.42 billion in revenue from its network business, which includes display advertising. That reflects a 7% improvement compared to the same period last year.
Pentland says the next frontier is microtargetting, when political campaigns and extremist groups sock-puppet social media accounts to make it seem like an entire community is spontaneously espousing similar beliefs. “That sort of persuasion, from people you think are like you having what appears to be a free opinion, is enormously effective,” Pentland says. “Advertising, you can ignore. Having people you think are like you have the same opinion is how fads, bubbles, and panics start.” For now it’s only working on edge cases, if at all. But next time? Or the time after that? Well, they did try to warn us.
After about 36 hours of work, during which his software crashed dozens of times under the weight of all that data, he was able to map out these links, transforming the list into an impossibly intricate data visualization. “It was a picture of the entire ecosystem of misinformation a few days after the election,” Albright says, still in awe of his discovery. “I saw these insights I’d never thought of.”
The FCC also ordered the company to report within 30 days whether it has started to follow the rules. Depending on the company’s response and consumer complaints, additional penalties could be imposed against Fax.com or the firms that have hired the company to send the faxes, the FCC said.

The deal gives Amazon more than 465 physical stores in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Before the acquisition, Amazon had a small brick-and-mortar presence with less than a dozen bookstores, a prototype convenience store in Seattle and pickup locations in some cities near college campuses. The tie-up may also give the Seattle-based company valuable data on how people shop in stores, where the vast majority of retail sales still take place. Amazon is an expert in using data on past purchases and browsing to offer suggestions that might make people buy more, and could start applying that in stores as well as online.
Aisha: We have a few ways of finding authors. We have a place to send submissions on our website, so we can select some from that. We also find some through eLance, which is a freelance website, so we can put a posting out and people respond to that. But also, there’s just people we know. We have a few books which will be coming out soon written by people we know who are from different countries, who always wanted to write but haven’t gotten the opportunity at a big publisher.
With CoreOS, all applications sit inside “containers” – little bubbles of software code that include everything an application needs to run. These containers then latch onto the main OS through the simplest of interfaces. That means you can easily move applications from OS to OS and from machine to machine – much as you move shipping containers from boat to boat and train to train – but it also means you can easily update the OS without disturbing the applications. “The way we’re able to consistently update the OS – and be nimble – is to make sure we have a consistent way of running applications,” Polvi says.
For the second time this year, hackers have broken into computers at the Indiana University, this time just two weeks after the school pledged to tighten its computer security policies.
The full list of Children’s Programming is available on the Intervention website. Oni and Harknell have taken the idea of including children’s programming seriously and it is a major track. We have oriented the children’s programming towards ages 4 through 12, although geeklings of all ages are welcome. We only ask, per Con rules, that kids under 13 be accompanied by an adult. This is actually very important to us at GeekDad and GeekMom, as a big part of what we believe in is parent involvement with raising geeklings.

She is waiting to see if the Court’s decision will decide the fate of hundreds of articles she wrote as a freelance columnist for the San Diego Union-Tribune that were republished electronically without permission or payment and now sit precariously in the newspaper’s archives.
MSNBC.com, the website associated with the cable network that is a combined venture of Microsoft and General Electric, takes a similar approach with a “Conflict with Iraq” section.
I should also point out that by the very nature of crowdsourcing they are always on the look out for writers, artist and cartographers for future work so if you fancy yourself as having a little bit of talent and want to get published then get in touch via their website.
We ignore the parallels between those experiments and the ones the TIs describe at our own peril. We are amphibians in a pot of water over a flame.
But Rubin said security standards call for “defense in-depth,” a term used by security professionals that means defenses must be built into every layer of a system. That includes software, hardware and implementation. “We looked at the software and it was poorly written. I don’t think claiming that the other components are secure is a good enough argument,” Rubin said.
