There’s also a very cool new interactive graph for filtering bookmarks around larger chunks of time. For example, if you wanted to see all your bookmarks added on this day last year, just click the interactive graph, select the start and end points and then click the search button to narrow the results.
If the ship is full and there’s a clear path to take, then the plundering begins! Any trolls which were in the sea space on the path taken get moved to the small boats below the Chief Troll’s boat, with the bottom-most troll placed on the bottom-most boat and then filling up from there. (Once the last boat is reached all remaining trolls are placed on the top-most boat in a stack in the same order they were in the sea space.) The ship moves to the appropriate island, and each troll disembarks (from head to tail) and collects the plunder on the corresponding space on the island. Players place their plunder on the appropriate space on their private boats, and any plunder taken by the Chief Troll goes into the Chief Troll’s boat which is on the left side of the board. Anyone who has collected appropriate sets marks their bonuses on the board with troll markers. The island the boat just left is replenished with plunder tiles.
Facebook is getting support in court papers from several organizations including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union, as well as eight tech companies such as Microsoft and Apple Inc.
When shoppers try such a service at home, they are “11 times more likely to buy,” according to Sally Huang, the lead of Houzz’s similar AR app. This is what Ori Inbar, a VC investor in AR, calls “moving the internet off screens into the real world.”
In the first half, the Symphony performed Costello’s first full-length orchestral work, Il Sogno, while Costello sat listening in the audience.
MP4 is a pretty standard thing to write on a label here in Spain, and a lot of people take it to be an upgrade to MP3. I overheard this conversation last year, watching somebody show off a generic, cheapo media player:
Garbade and Green, Livecoding.tv founders, after their YC Demo Day presentation, August 19, 2015.
“I like novels from Julius Verne,” he told Wired.com. “I’m the big romantic and environmentalist, and I like the sea and adrenaline.”
Ecommerce giant Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is under federal investigation for potential violations of the U.S. government’s sanctions against Iran, including sales to an individual listed on the terrorism watch list, the company said in a regulatory filing last Friday.
Jobs also compared the new Power Macs to PCs on price. According to Jobs, a roughly comparable PC from Dell’s website, featuring a pair of Xeon processors, costs $4,031, “and is not as fast.”
The Pulse of the City team incorporated a lot more than one digital element. A heart-shaped sculpture, bigger than a parking meter, made of cardboard and auto body putty, Pulse linked an EKG board to a pair of copper handles to measure the pulse of anyone holding it. Then, with an Arduino, a midi shield, a handful of LEDs, and an XBee radio, it generated a light and music show, and shared pulse information to the web.
Rees, who previously wrote the book My New Fighting Technique Is Unstoppable, said Nash understands what he meant to convey with the strip. “Where many people only saw the hype and notoriety, he saw the grief, confusion and other emotions,” he said. “(Nash’s) willingness to donate some of Soft Skull’s proceeds only underscores what a good match this is.”
“Even defendants whose cases were dismissed are finding their mugs hot on the internet,” the company’s website adds. “Every time someone clicks on your page to view your mug shots, sites like Florida Arrests earns a little more cash from Google…. We have perfected the art of fighting mug-shot websites.”
“WebKit has the strength of Apple behind it,” he said. “And Nokia. It has the potential to become the universal browser” – the core technology for different companies to build different browsers.
In short, there doesn’t seem to be any consistency in the current DoD
policy. And that’s no surprise. A few months ago, a senior Pentagon
P.A. [public affairs] official told me that his service had no plans to engage the blogosphere, because their studies showed that “people don’t rely on blogs for news and information.” And he said it with a straight face. *
You’re fired: Simply Hired, a 5-month-old employment-related Internet startup, has started an affiliated website devoted to the stories of workers who have received a pink slip for a silly, outrageous or embarrassing reason.
The AAGPS V4 uses GPS (Global Positioning System) and cell ID technology to position the device. It also uses the wireless GSM network to transmit those positions to a web-based portal to view those positions.
UPDATE: Because of the new rocket threat, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has now placed all communities within 24 miles of the Gaza Strip under “special situation” regulations. According to the Jerusalem Post, the move means that the Israeli Home Front Command “has the authority to issue binding regulations for the population in the area. Citizens living within… must follow the Home Front Command instructions.”
Samuel DiPiazza Jr., CEO of PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Robert Eccles, a former Harvard Business School professor, argue in their book that all of the necessary resources are at hand to “to solve a crisis of historic proportions.”
At least one paper that Kriegeskorte has reviewed—by Andrew Haun, a neuroscientist at University of Wisconsin-Madison—was rejected by the journal. Haun has a thick skin about it: One upside, he says, is that he’ll be able to write a reply to Kriegeskorte—something that normally doesn’t happen when a paper is rejected. Other recipients might not have such a cheery outlook; Kriegeskorte thinks he’s probably upset some authors he’s reviewed. But to him, those are just the growing pains for a new culture of unshackled information.
“People need to realize that by not keeping their machines secure, they are costing the rest of the Internet community millions of dollars in time and lost revenue.”
A website Ancheta maintained included a schedule of prices he charged people who wanted to rent out the machines, along with guidelines on how many bots were required to bring down a particular type of website.
When Muris said a law passed by Congress prevents the FTC from dealing with political calls, Barton said: “We’ve seen the enemy and he’s us.”
And, when asked to evaluate links from a Google search containing mixed results on a topic, the researchers found that many college students could be swayed by a polished site with impressive logos of media companies. In other words, the ubiquitous “as seen on Fox News and Oprah” was often enough to assuage their skepticism.
Legal experts say investigators wouldn’t break any laws in accessing a publicly available database like GEDmatch, which exists expressly to map that connectivity. “The tension though is that any sample that gets uploaded also is providing information that could to lead to relatives that either haven’t consented to have their information made public, or even know it’s been done,” says Jennifer Mnookin, dean of the UCLA School of Law and a founder of its program on understanding forensic science evidence. “That’s not necessarily wrong, but it leads to a web of information that implicates a population well beyond those who made a decision themselves to be included.”
Since, I’ve already seen the Mophie Juice Pack Pro in action, I was curious to see how well the iBattz Mojo Armor battery case would hold up.
After the predetermined number of days (or when all survivors are killed off), the player with the most victory points wins.

The way I think about that problem is people who are about to become financially [independent] are typically high school to college, that transition. We need to teach them some basics but it’s completely impractical to teach them everything. It’s like asking them to memorize Wikipedia. First of all, what’s the point? Second of all, we just want them to make good decisions, not to know everything. So to your point, I think there are some basics like compounding interest, how credit scores work, when you need to buy certain things, that we can do right around that age. The rest of it, I think there are resources like NerdWallet where, when you go ask a specific question, you’re going to get back a really clear answer. So I think that’s where technology should supplement.
I plugged in an iPhone and a point-and-shoot camera, and both were recognized immediately by Picasa. I also appreciated the fact that Picasa lets you organize and store your photos however you want on your hard drive. It seeks out photos on your local machine and loads them into the app while preserving whatever file structure you’ve built. This is especially useful for iPhoto users who currently rely on the file system enforced by Apple’s program. It’s also great for stubborn geeks like myself who don’t like our applications telling us what to do and where to put our files.
The HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught some of the best pictures ever of one of Mars’ two moons, Phobos, late last month. There is a stereo version of the image available on their website and an even higher res version after the jump (for your own Phobos exploring). The illuminated part of Phobos visible here is about 21 km across.
Cherie Chappell, a lawyer in Edmond, Oklahoma, who is representing West, refused to comment. “The case is still pending. I cannot talk about it at all because of that,” Chappel said.
