Another day. Another zombie T-Rex to put down. All part of the routine for Arthur Wallace and MI37—the government department devoted to defending Britain from threats magical, supernatural, extraterrestrial, and generally odd.
For the most part, these are not e-books that have been unencrypted, but rather they are predominately print books that have been scanned. The scans are then converted into plain text or e-book formats, such as Adobe e-Book Reader or Microsoft Reader.
To celebrate this milestone, I am posting links to five of my favorite posts each day through Saturday. I started this past Sunday. This week amounts to a second-anniversary review. Explore these links and you will delve deeply into the serious space history world of Beyond Apollo.
Interestingly, no one had the objection that it didn’t feel like, well, reading a book. I expected to have this problem with the eReader but I found it very easy to get used to, even though I love physical books. I grew especially attached to the ability to make any book instantly large print. Far better than holding a paperback close to my nose.

“Names of abortion providers who have been murdered because of their activities are lined through in black, while names of those who have been wounded are highlighted in gray,” the majority ruled. “As a result, we cannot say that it is clear as a matter of law that (the list) is purely protected, political expression.”
__Fact: Relationships are challenging. Particularly when one of you is made of snow.
The prevailing argument against women in combat is that most can’t meet the job’s physical requirements. Exoskeletons, said Knowles, could “radically equalize that,” thus enabling a 130-pound woman to lift, carry and be as effective as a 180-pound man.
Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who led the state coalition against Microsoft, said this week that the DC Circuit Court of Appeals would probably overturn a breakup order from U.S. District Judge Thomas Jackson.
“There’s going to be a star sitting somewhere in Clark space, someone we’ve never heard of, who’s going to make a huge difference,” he said.
Hewlett-Packard faced a similar predicament two years ago when it admitted that it offered fewer than the 65,000 colors it promised for its Jornada handheld computer. The company offered refunds to its customers.
The definition of a “resource” is a bit hazy, but in a good way. For example, you could potentially trade some of your excess oil to a city with a bountiful auto industry in exchange for getting your citizens access to vacations in that city’s ski resorts, or a lowered price tag on imported vehicles. Cities can also work together, specializing in, and offering services, that benefit all: Natetopia pumps crude oil, Kohlerlandia refines it and Wiredville’s sprawling transportation industry cuts both of our costs in distributing that gasoline to our own cities, and those who purchase from us.
“There’s this notion in consumer products and toys that you buy something and that’s what you’ll have forever,” Anki co-founder Hanns Tappeiner said. “But that doesn’t have to be true if you can use software to redefine what a product is and how it works.”
The lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California accused Arista of copying technology, infringing on 14 patents and taking copyrighted material.
Len Westerberg, a spokesman with the federal Department of Canadian Heritage, said they completed an informal review of Amazon.ca following the website launch in late June and determined they didn’t have any jurisdiction over the American e-tailer.
Hacker and security researcher Samy Kamkar takes a look at a variety of hacking scenes from popular media and examines their authenticity.
If you’re using a Mac right now, you’ll notice a weird flowery symbol on a key right next to your spacebar. That’s the command key, used to quickly access particular tools on the Mac — and only the Mac. That flowery symbol is there because Steve Jobs didn’t like the original symbol on the command key: the Apple logo. We don’t quite understand this either, but that’s the way it was. Jobs asked Andy Hertzfeld — the guy who designed the button — to redo the icon, and Hertzfeld turned to Susan Kare — who designed many of Apple’s icons. Her icon isn’t really a flower. It was inspired by a symbol used at Swedish campgrounds to identify a place of interest. How ironic. Image: Wired/Ariel Zambelich
At the other end of the spectrum, Israeli officials, especially those in the Foreign Ministry, the Information Directorate of the Prime Minister’s Office, Minister for Public Diplomacy Yuli Edelstein, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit and others, decry the lack of money and resources that Israel spends on its public diplomacy, on its hasbara.
But there’s one catch. You can only use this amazing variety of resources if you’re using certain devices.
Paul-Olivier Dehaye, a mathematician and cofounder of PersonalData.IO, has used UK data protection law to help individuals access personal information processed by Cambridge Analytica, the controversial firm behind the data breach affecting more than 50 million Facebook users. Dehaye believes that GDPR could help pry out more information.
When it’s not running, Apple maintains its own connection to the user’s iPhone — and developers can push messages to users via the Apple service.
“We found a system that was so vulnerable in itself that you didn’t need to put malicious code into it to rig an election,” Kohno said. The system, they concluded, was open to attack from both inside and out.
Band spokesman Dennis McNally said the group was swayed by the backlash from fans, who for decades have freely taped and traded the band’s live performances.
Transport for London (TfL) will reward passengers who set up the Oyster Auto top-up in the next month with five free iTunes songs. The Oyster Auto top-up automatically refills (by charging your credit card) TfL Oyster transit cards with credit when balance gets low. With Auto top-up, passengers do not need to stop by a ticket booth or machine to add value to their cards. So what’s the catch? Automatically refilling cards somewhat makes passengers unaware of the amount of money spent on transit – sort of like giftcards where the cash is intangible. TfL, however, has a policy where you will never pay more than the price of a day pass if you make enough journeys. Oyster Cards also provide a significant savings over the paper ticket prices: a trip in Central London Zone 1 costs £1.50 (3 USD) with the Oyster or £4 (8 USD) with paper tickets. The Oyster – iTunes deal can be found on the TfL website and will expire on 29 February 2008.
Spam or not, DM Days offers a somewhat unsettling backstage glimpse into the tips and techniques used by marketers to appeal to potential customers.
Mosseri: We’ve been adding these things, right. Like, we didn’t use to predict how long you would read an article for, we didn’t use to have a sense for how broadly trusted a domain was, we didn’t predict how long you would watch a video for. We call these things “p something,” p comment, p informative—how likely are you to comment, how likely are you to see this story as informative—so as we’ve added those over time, just by adding other predictions and outcomes, that shifts the weight from the lighter-weight things to the heavier-weight things. Local is another one we launched in January.
He is not alone. I have lost more than one friend or colleague on mountain roads. It is not a forgiving terrain. James is a hero in the news, and a good person from what I see. Still, the news services seem to miss the point that the Galice-Agness road is less dangerous than most in the region. It was a bad decision to try any shortcut in the winter in a cold spell without maps or preparedness.
The other two books delve deeper into the story: Celandine is actually a prequel involving Midge’s great-aunt, and then Winter Wood ties the two stories together. It’s masterfully written and the way Augarde pulls things together is very satisfying.
“I wanted to create a controller that was kind of ironic – not your typical interface to a video game,” Bugden, who has worked as a web designer and developer, said.
Sony’s projector is aimed at small venues – such as event spaces – or the home cinema enthusiast. Yes, $35,000 is a lot of money, but this is a serious bit of kit.
“I wanted to combine this great urge which we have about our own private identity with the identities of pop icons,” who she said are more like cultural phenomena than “real, private persons.”
Apart from Cisco, the other tech giants, which have announced job cuts in the face of PC industry decline in recent years, are Microsoft, HP and Intel.
Because Bell repeatedly said he would not violate the law, his attorney hopes to use those statements and other evidence to erect a First Amendment defense. Leen said he plans to ask Judge Tanner to tell the jury that because the First Amendment protects advocacy of violent acts, they can find Bell to be not guilty as charged.
