For some sample code and working examples, head over to the new WebIntents.org site and check out the examples (the image example is particularly good at showing off the potential power of Web Intents).
While the bored students were frantically pressing buttons, the scientists were monitoring changes in their brain using a modified PET scan able to track the activity of dopamine neurons throughout the cortex. This allowed the scientists to search for correlations between dopaminergic activity and the willingness of subjects to pursue the least pleasurable forms of labor. They could see why some people stopped pressing the buttons while others persisted, even after their pinky began to ache.
“The girls are every bit as smart as the guys, but they don’t have confidence,” says David Simpson, the team’s coach, adding that part of why he’s involved is to help more girls to participate in engineering. “What we’ve found is that having FIRST on the application is a big help getting into school,” he says.
But as recently as yesterday, when asked about the leaked Army memo obtained by Danger Room (which cited a risk of “long-term adverse health conditions” from the pits), Pentagon spokesperson George Little told reporters that “we do not have specific evidence that ties these kinds of disposal facilities to health issues.”
It’s been two and a half years since a group calling itself The Guardians of Peace hacked Sony in an epic breach, revealing the personal information of thousands of the entertainment company’s employees. In a class action lawsuit with 435,000 of its ex-employees, Sony struck a deal with the plaintiffs in what will amount to a $15 million payout, with a maximum of $10,000 awarded to each individual class action member. The hack, which the US government linked back to North Korea, didn’t just reveal employee data, but also exposed private correspondence between Sony executive staff that revealed embarrassing details about the film industry.

“E-mail’s success is also its biggest weakness: It is too popular,” said Maurene Grey, Intranets and Electronic workplace analyst with Gartner. “Trying to be more helpful and communicative, employees unnecessarily e-mail their co-workers too often. They clutter e-mail inboxes, fill up servers and sap productivity with the volume of these messages.”
You advised readers to wait a year or so before installing Vista. While I always recommend waiting at least six months to see if there are any patches and so on, your flaw is that you expected Vista to be legacy-friendly. It is clearly stated on Microsoft’s site and others that the company is trying not to do that. Microsoft wants everyone to upgrade to get rid of all old equipment. That’s why the requirements are so high. Now as for the other issues except for the price, which I think is very ridiculous, if this OS was perfect, there would be very little need to improve or upgrade to the next version, right?

Reaper (pictured top) is used for all aspects of making a Rock Band song; not just the music creation, but the character animations, additional sound effects (like the crowd cheering) the venue, the camera control and the lighting. It can be used for audio and MIDI interchangeably, so you can do your mixing and track authoring all in one place. Harmonix has also added a free custom plug-in that allows the creator to watch the gameplay in real time, without having to go back and forth from the Xbox.
Gurr declined to say if he thought the government could deliver this, but indicated he was relaxed whatever the outcome.
The company also is scanning books stored at the New York Public Library and Oxford University, but those two libraries so far are providing Google only with “public domain” works – material no longer protected by copyrights.
TL;DR: SQL injection attacks are the most common way that hackers gain access to websites and steal sensitive data, by exploiting vulnerabilities in web applications that interface with back-end databases.
Shares of IBM, whose revenue has now fallen for 20 quarters in a row, tumbled 4 percent to $163.15 in trading after the bell on Tuesday.
