This is where solar device chargers can really come in handy: so long as there’s sunlight, you can keep your cell phone charged. This can be absolutely critical when it comes to disaster preparedness, as folks along Tornado Alley and the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the United States can attest.
“These are complementary approaches, and different ways to get to the same goal of helping consumers block tracking,” said Dean Hachamovitch, the company’s vice president in charge of IE development. “This path is different in that it actually blocks the tracking now.”
The attorneys cited cases in which courts have concluded that if someone gains permission or access to something through trickery or misrepresentation, it is still considered authorization and does not constitute nonconsent. If, for example, someone tricks another party into willingly handing over the keys to a car, the trickster could not be considered guilty of stealing the car.
In fact, while the new Delicious may be a slight regression in functionality, long time users should be relieved to know that, after years of being ignored by Yahoo, someone is finally willing to put some work into Delicious.
This elaborate network of national bunkers—and the unique responsibilities they had in hosting US officials after a nuclear attack—made FEMA’s predecessors and the national continuity-of-government program leaders in the developing field of computers and technology. By the early 1970s, Mount Weather and what was then known as the Office of Emergency Preparedness had amassed some of the most sophisticated and cutting-edge computers in the world to help it respond to the complex scenarios of an unfolding attack.
Like Flickr, smugmug also lets users tag photos, and anyone, even nonmembers, can search images on the service by typing in keywords. Its tools allow members to tag as many as 100 photos at once. That is useful, MacAskill said, for easily categorizing photos from a trip or an event.

The Commission – which approved the transaction without conditions – said it did not only rely on the information about the possibility of matching user accounts when reviewing the deal.
The Takeaway: A mistake or a joke that no one actually took in the manner it was intended? We may never know (but chances are, it’s somewhere between the two; a joke that slipped through vetting a couple of years in a row), but if there’s one thing everyone could learn from the kerfuffle, it’s this:
Both companies said they moved swiftly to have the ads removed after they were discovered by the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, a group which monitors anti-Jewish and other hate groups and has increasingly focused its attention on the Internet.

Van de Roer’s Portrait Machine Project is shot with a piece of controversial new-age technology called an AuraCam. The resulting “aura portraits” may be more at home in psychic fair stalls than in Soho studios.

Correction: The story misstated that Ascena planned to shutter 25% of its retail fleet. In fact, the company plans to reduce a portion of its store count that has lease term experiations or kickouts through July 2019. The 667 stores to be closed represents 15% of Ascena’s total store count.
Now that domain name overseers are releasing a new suffix – dot-biz – Sutton is determined not to let history repeat itself. Her company has filed a claim for trademark rights to the website “Catchword.biz” – less for the purpose of building up the new site than to keep others from doing so.
Piccard and a team of pilots plan to make a multi-stage around the world flight in a solar powered airplane similar to the current test aircraft in 2012. Pilots will fly a single 36 hour day-night-day leg before landing at an airport to switch with another pilot. This will be repeated as they circumnavigate the globe.
Turk dismissed charges that the Bush-Cheney campaign is a top-down hierarchy. “This is one of the great myths of politics,” he said. “Our grass-roots organization is tremendous and comprised of self-starters taking action to ensure the president is re-elected. We have over 1.1 million financial supporters – more than any presidential campaign in history.”
Historically this is a problem that has been solved—imperfectly—through smart objects or symbols, and also tedious manual spacing and image placement on the part of the designer. Instead of merely following the prior art, the team asked itself if there was a better answer—what if they could make almost everything automatic? What if they could compress what can literally take dozens of steps down to just two or three?
I’m eager to try these experiments, but there’s only one hurdle. As my science-loving 5-year-old put it, “I’m way more interested in eating my candy than I am in science.” Sigh.
It didn’t come. The dearth of media attention to Memmott’s winning entry, Lexia to Perplexia, underscored a problem inherent to promoting new media.
A major concern of intellectual property owners is protecting that property on the Net and setting a price for it. But Robert Trebor, a self-described computer hacker in the original “good sense” of the word, says authors can depend on the honesty of their users and should offer the work for free and just ask for a tip.
FCC Plan to Kill Net Neutrality Rules Could Hurt Students
Broadband plays a crucial role in education, from grade school to career retraining. Here’s how the end of net neutrality could set students back.
Refrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community. Help us delete comments that do not follow these guidelines by marking them offensive. Let’s work together to keep the conversation civil.
Where it will stop is anyone’s guess. Originally, the project was to be community-based, but Ratner admitted that restricting the links to Seattle bands is impossible. Already there are obvious exceptions, like Velvet Revolver linked to Guns N’ Roses and Ten Minute Warning (but, oddly, not yet to Stone Temple Pilots).
“I don’t think the ratings are actually capturing a lot of the viewership that’s occurring outside of traditional television…social media interactions and usage has grown exponentially every single year over the last several years, whether it’s on Twitter or some of these other platforms.”
Skeptics, rejoice! MythBusters no longer is the only show that aims to teach its viewers to question their perceptions of reality before deciding what to believe. Instead of taking popular assertions and trying to verify them, though, this show makes its own assertions and dares you to figure out which one is fake. And who better to serve up such a program than the master illusionists and debunkers Penn Jillette and Teller?
Here are the new things that Nintendo announced on Tuesday, as seen by WIRED at a preview event on Sunday:
After we settle into the plastic chairs, the boy returns bearing a tray of Turkish coffee. From a quarter mile away, we can hear gunfire and shelling at the front line—the thump of outgoing artillery, the crunch of incoming. Periodically, the older assistant returns and lobs another bomb into the courtyard, its blast interrupting our conversation as bits of concrete plink against the plastic table. Yassin then wanders over to inspect the crater, squatting down like a tracker on his quarry’s trail. The bomb maker added nitrocellulose to his mix today, in a bid to give his explosives more power; now he is checking the craters for residual ammonium nitrate, which would indicate an inefficient reaction.
Wired.com: While we’re swinging wildly on the subject, do you sometimes wish you were related to Alfred Hitchcock?
“What follows next no one knows for sure,” said Adams, though he does speculate on a future in which hack attacks move beyond simple site defacement and into the realm of serious interference such as tampering with telephone and electrical grids. But for now, the cyber war rages on with assaults escalating in severity day by day. “Right now it’s anarchy out there,” he said.
