Waymo originally said that two Lidar patents were infringed, and on Friday in an amended complaint it added a third patent. It also said that Uber infringed unpatented trade secrets Waymo asserts, such as parameters and measurements for the light beam used in Lidar.
There are several locations where you can join in some birthday celebrations this Wednesday with prizes, giveaways, games and some special guests. But if you’re not in any of these neighborhoods, at least celebrate by finishing out Season 8 (and don’t worry; Season 9 is in the works) or by picking up the new hardcover Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales—check out my full review on the next page.

No, not natively, if you’re talking about iPhoto. Your iPad can only display photos synced to the device, meaning you can’t pull images from your iPhoto photo library over Wi-Fi. You can, however, handle photos using cloud services such as Evernote or Dropbox.
A recent glance at the home page shows a mix of soft and hard news, with “Bill Nye’s new show is opionated, unapologetic and exactly what we need” along with “Stigma against undocumented immigrant hurts everyone seeking a better life in the US”, “What Serena Williams wrote to her baby on Instagram and why it matters,” and “Things get heated as New Orleans dismantles Confederate monuments.” As a scan of Upworthy headlines these days suggests, its version of optimism doesn’t seem to have strayed far from its founders’ roots in liberal politics. Upworthy says it does not define its mission in left-right, liberal-conservative terms, and Pariser says the site’s audience is surprisingly diverse in terms of politics and geography—an expected clump of progressives but more than a handful of Trump supporters and centrists and “folks who aren’t really tuned in to politics.” Content-wise, however, Upworthy clearly hasn’t discovered a magic formula for transcending the intractable pull of partisanship online. Its experiment seems to be more one of tone: positive encouragement rather than inflammatory antagonism.
On March 11, 2011, and in the interest of advancing science, we invited our critics and competitors, the editors at Science and Nature magazines, to join in forming an independent commission to investigate the Hoover findings. Despite their loud complaints, they ignored our offer. Why?
Most likely, this is a temporary situation that will be resolved byadditional mingling by bean counters at both companies, but one wonderswhether Wal-Mart and its customers would have been better served bywaiting until all of its ducks were in a row and then announcing acomprehensive DRM-free store on the level of Amazon MP3.
“People are playing a waiting game,” said Stephen Carl, head equity trader at Williams Capital Group. Investors are “keeping an eye on things with the election and the upcoming Fed meeting on the horizon.”
Maya Chard-Yaron, 19, was poked about 10 times last week. But rather than getting annoyed at the unsolicited jabs, Chard-Yaron kind of enjoyed it – especially since friends and acquaintances were doing the poking through a social-networking website, Thefacebook.
Russell Clifton, a regular Betfair customer, bets as much as 1,000 pounds ($1,690) on a single horse race. As a professional stock trader, he said he’s comfortable with Betfair’s technology and appreciates being able to offer his own odds directly to other individuals.
Does that require separate Congressional approval, or is it basically just part of the big budget?
Fuck it. I’m fucking sick. I’m fucking tired. It’s a fucking “America’s Sweethearts” kind of night. 09:59:54 PM
CIA software to scour photos: The CIA is bankrolling efforts to improve technology designed to scour millions of digital photos or video clips for particular cars or street signs or even, some day, human faces.
As a Yahoo representative told Wired.com, the Flickr team’s intention was to simply add to the way its core users are already using the site to tell stories about themselves. In its announcement, Flickr is even referring to these short clips as “long photos.” Quaint for sure, but also very smart. It seems like a natural extension for a site like Flickr, which attracts a uniquely artistic community that gives the site its distinctly precious flavor.
He currently stars opposite Don Cheadle and Kristin Bell on Showtime’s House of Lies and has a hilarious recurring role on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. He even co-wrote Hugh Jackman’s opening number for The 81st Academy Awards, and has the Emmy to prove it. (“Yeah, we can brag about that,” Schwartz says.) He also operates his own website, RejectedJokes.com, where you can keep up with the actor’s whereabouts, check out his one-panel comic Assorted Jelly Beans, and well… see a few of his rejected jokes from over the years.
Few consider what they are giving away when they download software or start using a website. The median time spent on end-user license agreements is six seconds, Coggeshall said, citing a 2011 study published by MeasuringRU.com.
“[S]ome of the projects support foreign intelligence collection and analysis generally rather than the cyber security mission particularly,” the report concludes. “That is not to say that the proposed projects are not worthwhile, but rather that what will be achieved for the more than $17 billion planned by the administration to secure the government’s networks is less than what might be expected.”
The word iPod is even used to refer to old-style boomboxes, which are now known as iPod Megas, the dictionary says.
A source inside Microsoft requesting anonymity said that if the cracker got into Microsoft’s network using the company’s “Houston” domain as he claims to have done, he would not have had access to the entire server system or to any program code.
People who realize this about our world are in the right. Lesser people are obscurantists, since they’re forced to rely on instructions, regulations, patents, ethics, public opinion and similar unhackerly crutches.
But the brokerage said that scenario was unlikely, as it expected Samsung to resolve problem before the fourth quarter of the year.
In 2006, Moore launched the “Metasploit Decloaking Engine,” a proof-of-concept that compiled five tricks for breaking through anonymization systems. If your Tor install was buttoned down, the site would fail to identify you. But if you’d made a mistake, your IP would appear on the screen, proving you weren’t as anonymous as you thought. “That was the whole point of Decloak,” says Moore, who is chief research officer at Austin-based Rapid7. “I had been aware of these techniques for years, but they weren’t widely known to others.”
You can get the full RSS feed effect, or closer to it, by tapping over to News’s Favorites tab, which lets you comb through all of your chosen media org’s available content. Even this, though, mostly doesn’t feel like a fire hose; partner sites like the ones mentioned above can sort their stories into any of several categories for better navigability. Non-partners fare less well, showing just one big splatter of stories. In an ideal world, I’d put in the time for deep dives into individual titles, but I’ve got two small kids and an even smaller attention span. Given the choice between total comprehensiveness and tight, timely curation, I’ll take the latter every time.
While these exhibits sound promising, the public’s response to the ambitious online component of the show, which launched in January, has been mixed.
“The purpose of such an act is to avoid the flow of massive numbers of people, which potentially could lead to the spread of this epidemic,” he told a news conference.
“We were able to spend like a week and a half before we started filming just sitting with David and talking about what he wanted to create here, working on the character and the look of her,” Monroe says of her prep for the role. “The hair and the wardrobe was really specific so I think that helped a lot in bringing her to life.”

Certain Mercedes are equipped with software that can dial phone numbers for the driver and operate the radio, cassette and CD player by voice command. Some models also have navigation systems but they are not voice-activated yet, said Glenn Melton, general manager for R.A.B. Motors, a Mercedes-Benz dealership in San Rafael, California.
