In other words, Trump will need all the help he can get. And there’s a very good reason why technology names sit atop all the most powerful brands lists. From Apple and Google to Uber and Airbnb, tech companies are among the most recognized brands and their leaders are among the most influential opinion leaders on Earth. Their reach is not limited to Silicon Valley. Their reach has no limits.

Jim Gallagher, a spokesman for MLB, said his office received about a dozen complaints from fans, such as Kennedy, having trouble accessing the webcasts. But he blamed the problem on users trying to log on without an account.
We grabbed a couple of white Russians as trivia questions interrupted the movie soundtrack playing on the sound system. And then it happened. That song by that band came on, and everyone screamed in unison, “I hate the fuckin’ Eagles, man!”
Probably Lincoln’s most controversial act was suspending the writ of habeas corpus, a safeguard of liberty that dates back to English common law and England’s Habeas Corpus Act of 1671. A vital check on the government’s power, habeas corpus says that authorities must bring a person they arrest before a judge who orders it.
ATLANTA – Pamela Elder, a junior at Georgia State University, got hooked when she found some old high school classmates. Next she used the online yearbook of yearbooks to track down people she hadn’t seen since grade school. No wonder the Thefacebook is an internet sensation at campuses across the nation.
Third, and perhaps most likely, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act doesn’t exist in France and doesn’t cover the activities of French citizens. The music industry claimed that by presenting his paper, Felten would have violated the DMCA.
That’s right – diesel. Most people remember the diesel engine for its failures in the late ’70s, when the foul-smelling, noisy, slow-moving passenger vehicles made a brief appearance and then quickly fell out of vogue. Since then, TDIClub members point out, improvements have been made in diesel technology – the only way an average person can distinguish a TDI from its gasoline-running counterpart is by looking at the symbol emblazoned on the car’s trunk.
However, Blackburn was gratified by Twitter’s reversal saying, “We were pleased that Twitter reversed their decision after about 36 hours.”

2012 may have been the year that the password broke. It seemed like everyone on the internet received spam e-mail or desperate pleas for cash – the so-called “Mugged in London” scam – from the e-mail accounts of people who had been hacked. And Wired’s own Mat Honan showed everyone just how damaging a hack can be.
Will three bulging-brained telepaths induce you to buy the latest limited-edition Star Trek posters from Mondo?
In addition to exhibiting one side of confirmation bias—uncritically embracing evidence congenial to your world view—Harris recently exhibited a version of the flip side: straining to reject evidence you find unsettling. He did so in discussing the plight of physicist and popular writer Lawrence Krauss, who was recently suspended by Arizona State University after multiple women accused him of sexual predation.
As with other inmates, Ferrato did take pleasure in the day-for-night atmosphere; the way the city receded and time fell away as you slipped into this other world, with podwellians allowed to leave but mostly choosing not to—“as though it would break the trance” in the words of one. Some footage shot by an Englishman named James Walsh shows the firing range to be no more than moderately diverting, as a succession of beautiful (mostly female) urbanites step up to shoot guns for the first time, some rattled by the experience, others full of G.I. Jane suck-my-dick spunk. In other words … so what?
A key component of Papert’s educational philosophy is self-directed learning. As kids build cool things in Mathland, they naturally encounter problems which require creative mathematical solutions. As a result, formerly abstract mathematical concepts take on a real meaning, and there are tangible rewards for tinkering with these concepts.

The Making of Harry Potter makes a wonderful day out for any fan of the books and films, and indeed, any fan of the movie-making process in general. Warner Brothers says the tour should take about three hours to wander around – we were there for four and a half and I could have stayed much, much longer, there was just so much to see. As soon as we got home, we had to dig out the box set and watch the next film – and I wanted to watch all of them back to back, just to try and spot all the amazing things we’d seen.

The big rumor, that seems to have some serious substantiation behind it, is that Nintendo will release an HD upgraded version of the 2006 game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii U. This will surely end up being more than just a simple remaster, since Twilight Princess was not a simple release: There were two versions, one for GameCube with standard controls and one for Wii with motion controls.
