We estimate the additional expense burden will become six-figures inabout a year – and that’s year in and year out to boot. Here’s thehard part. We would need to cut current services and projects and stopor delay taking on initiatives. And that collides with ourorganizational DNA which screams for innovation and tireless pursuit ofour mission. Simply put, it’s just discouraging.
Summer of Code has served as a launchpad for quite a few new open source software projects as well as helping to jumpstart work on existing favorites. This year’s roster includes some 1,208 students who will spend the next 12 weeks writing code for 180 different open source organizations.
The fund alleges that Ms. Holmes and Mr. Balwani claimed their technology could do many more types of tests than it was capable of performing, the person said. Regulatory records disclosed by the Journal earlier this year show the company’s marquee Edison blood-testing device was being used to do only about a dozen tests before the company ceased using it altogether last year.
This campus will supplement Apple’s current digs, which were built in 1993 and cover 32 acres in Cupertino. Apple has had a presence in the city since its founding in 1976.

He also pointed the finger at system administrators who didn’t update their virus software regularly, noting that the latest version of his program had been released two months ago, plenty of time for the virus files to have been updated to block the spread of the Anna virus.
A Virginia coder named Brian Hoffman created this open source project to be a fully peer-to-peer uncensorable marketplace: Product listings are hosted on the computers of anonymous users, and freelance arbiters settle disputes for a fee. Hoffman says he’s not inviting in drug dealers, but that he can’t stop them from crashing the party. And with potentially thousands of different computers hosting the network and no central target for the Feds, it could be nearly impossible to shut them down.
“You’ll never be able to make up a person’s ability to perceive what’s the right move at the time, I don’t think,” said New Jersey State Police Sgt. Ed Long, who works in the traffic and public safety office.
In addition to such grassroots efforts, many vested parties also took the opportunity provided by the Tunney Act to opine on the proposed settlement. For example, ProComp, a trade group composed of Microsoft’s biggest competitors, held a press conference in Washington on Monday to announce that they’d marshaled the nation’s top legal and economic minds to stand against the settlement.
In the blog post covering Contacts 0.2, Mozilla’s Michael Hanson says his team is working quickly on adding support for other social networks, Thunderbird’s address book and the Windows address book.
I was curious about the sound of the album. At first, it sounded like a bad recording. Then I thought about it for a second, well, a couple minutes. I was so used to slickly produced and studio outputs I wasn’t prepared for his low fidelity sound. The first listen was tough, it was an adjustment. But Marc does a good job of pulling you in with his lyrics. He’s a storyteller, and adept at that. He puts true emotion in the stories he’s telling, however fictional they may be. But at the same time, they aren’t outrageous affairs and you can easily associate with the characters that he is creating. Then you start to notice all the sounds behind the ever present acoustic guitar, all sounds that Marc created himself, by himself in his home studio.
Watch out, university students: If you’re not careful, Molly Fitzgerald-Hayes will teach you about the human genome when you’re not paying attention.
“For 23 years, Mathematica has been a simple private company,” Wolfram said. “For better or worse, that allows one to do much crazier projects than you can through the traditional VC route.”
The crew Dragon capsule — an upgraded version of the cargo Dragon — has yet to fly in space. Neither has a Falcon Heavy rocket, which is essentially a Falcon 9 rocket with two strap-on boosters, according to Musk. A Falcon Heavy test flight is planned this summer, while an empty crew capsule is set to launch to the space station late this year. He said there will be ample time to test both the spacecraft and the rocket, before the moon mission.
The second bit of news is that the folks at Disney have created a very cool e-card maker for the official Phineas and Ferb website for Father’s Day, called the “Dad-inator.” Not only can you pick which character(s) you want to use, but you can also to some extent customize the animated card by placing related objects in the scene. It’s pretty fun to play around with, and, speaking as a dad who loves the show, I can say that I’d love to get such a card from my kids. If you’re worried about privacy concerns, rest assured that the only email address the application requires is that of the recipient, and that it only asks for the sender’s first name.
The popular first-person-shooter Quake was even turned into a purely audio experience by All in Play, a company that produces games for both blind and sighted players.
More than 15 million people around the globe have already downloaded Ingress, which uses a smartphone’s GPS tracking and camera to assist players in opening and claiming “portals” — any interesting place in their city, as long as it is accessible by foot — for their team. The idea is that a mysterious alien energy force, the Shapers, is coming into the world through these portals; you can play for the “Enlightened,” who “embrace the power this energy may bestow upon us,” or the “Resistance,” who want to stop it.
