Amazing things happen when designers are given a set of constraints. To celebrate makers everywhere, high-octane sponsor Red Bull is running an online contest in which contenders face off against the ultimate constraint: time.
The client launches an InContext Editing session with a keystroke, and, after logging in, sees a Flash-powered editing interface overlaid on top of the page. There are clearly defined editable regions – parts of the page the client is allowed to click on and edit – and each region can be assigned different permissions. For example, if you want to let your client edit only the content and not the formatting, you can do that. You can also give them full control over layout, font selection and such as well. Everything is WYSIWYG, so if they know how to use something like Microsoft Word, they shouldn’t have any problems.
“Under these policies is it permissible for an employee of Korn/Ferry to loan their username and password to anyone else?”
If those viral clips mean more to Reza than to the average American, it’s probably because he has to work so much harder to see them. YouTube is blocked in Iran. The TED site isn’t, but Iran’s trickling internet speeds make its videos virtually unwatchable anyway. So every couple of days, Reza plugs a USB drive into his satellite TV’s set-top box receiver and changes the channel to a certain unchanging green and white screen that shows only fixed text instructions. He sets the receiver to record to the USB. Then a few hours later he takes the resulting MPEG file on the USB over to his computer, where he decodes it with a piece of software called Toosheh. The result, each time, is more than a gigabyte of compressed, fresh digital contraband pulled directly from space, past both Iran’s infrastructure bottlenecks and its draconian censors.
While telemedicine may seem a cold and impersonal approach to patient care, physicians say it’s exactly the opposite.Physicians take shifts during which they commit to being available for online sessions with patients. Fairview’s hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekend.
Using an average book that sells 30,000 copies a year, Amazon sales account for 7 to 8 percent, or 2,100 copies. Used books account for approximately 15 percent of that number – that’s 315 books a year.
Thingamagoop 2 Synthesizer
Super fun and easy-to-operate synthesizer packs a square wave amplitude modulator and triangle wave pulse width modulator into a metal case (complete with alien artwork). For added fun there’s a LED-equipped antenna – the LEDacle – that can flicker its light into its own light sensor eye for optical theremin goodness. There are a huge number of sounds possible with this cool toy. You can either buy the Thingamagoop as a kit or a completed product. Buy it from BleepLabs. (JB) – – – – – –
Music discovery lets Twitter be in the music industry without competing with the music industry. It lets it continue to be a media company that doesn’t actually make media. It’s becoming increasingly obvious with everything Twitter does that it wants to be the place where you interact with media. It already is our second screen. It’s where you talk about the shows you watch with hashtags. You hear tracks from your favorite artists. You see preview clips of TV shows, and even the lead paragraph of stories you may want to read. Twitter is the second screen wonderland where media goes to explode–or at least that’s the idea. And Twitter Music is another cog in that machine. Sure, it’s insane, but it’s insane in the best possible way.
The boat still needs human oversight. But some of the world’s biggest maritime firms have committed to designing ships that won’t need any captains or crews â€” at least not on board.
On Tuesday, Microsoft opened the doors on what it calls Windows Azure Infrastructure Services, its mimic of Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud, a means of renting computing power over the internet that has remade the way the world builds and runs software. Previously, you could kick the tires on a “preview” of Microsoft’s service, but now the company is ready to share the thing with the world at large, complete with new prices in line with, yes, Amazon EC2.

Wired.com: One of the packages lets the buyer take whatever they want out of your closet. Anything in particular you don’t want to lose?
The question is how Pinterest users will react to seeing ads among their pins. As with Twitter before Promoted Tweets or Facebook before Sponsored Stories, Pinterest feeds enjoy a certain commercial-free purity, even though much of what people share and see through the site amounts to free advertising for whatever is being pinned.
Which is why CSE 484, an undergraduate computer-security course taught this quarter at the University of Washington, is so interesting to watch. Professor Tadayoshi Kohno is trying to teach a security mindset.
But Thomas’s argument against infrastructural doomsday is two-fold. First, he contends that the US electrical grid is under far more strain from wildlife than it ever has been from digital threats. CyberSquirrel1 illustrates that point in an absurd but effective way. Whoever hit Ukraine—almost certainly Russia—has got nothing on the combined impact of North American fauna.
Once atop the crater, Cossman put on a shiny, silver industrial proximity suit—designed to withstand temperatures up to 3,000 degrees—and rappelled in, having no real idea what he was getting himself into. He spent a few hours down there, “running around like crazy with my GoPro,” capturing piles of footage of this roiling inferno, a hole in the earth filled with molten rock so angry and orange that it looks like CGI on his clips.
“What the app does is really take with you into [your doctor’s] appointment a spreadsheet of how you’ve done on medication… as you know medication side effects are enormous and no one is able to keep track of this, but the app really does,” Grenell said.
Inside, there’s a a “Gumstix” ARM Cortex-A8 computer, Arduino Nano, LED Bargraph (for wireless signal level), 802.11 board antenna, 3.7-volt battery, 64×32 pixel LCD RGB display, 5mm cardioid microphone and an 8 GB microSD card. The computer runs a modified GNU/Linux embedded operating system.
Not for sale: Chinese Internet portal NetEase.com (NTES) said it had shelved plans to find a buyer as it continues an internal investigation into the possible misreporting of advertising revenues.
Sure, millions of people use these services every day, but by our definition, they’re vaporware: “Any program that’s in a never-ending, pre-release, beta-testing stage is considered vaporware, even if it’s widely available.”
As predicted and anticipated, iOS 6 features a much-needed update for Apple’s digital assistant, Siri. Specifically, she gains additional functionality in queries relating to sports, dining, and film; gains more systemwide functionality; and expands her language support by leaps and bounds.
The FCC asked for public comment on how quickly to bring VOIP providers under CALEA compliance.
The technology is currently on display at the IFA international consumer electronics exhibition in Berlin, though its creators say it’ll be ready for prime time next year after initial field trials with business partners. The system will be device independent, meaning that Palm Pre and iPhone users alike can hitch a ride.
None of the four could be immediately reached by phone or e-mail. A personal website listed for Sherman on the Rensselaer site was not loading as of Thursday afternoon.
Only students who attend the chosen high schools will be invited to apply for the scholarships. Additionally, they must plan to attend a college or university in the state of Washington in order to be eligible.
To make an exception, just this once, go ahead and tap on Settings right below that prompt. That’ll take you to a scary-sounding page called Install Unknown Apps, where you should toggle over Allow from this source. Then tap your way back to the Fortnite Installer, which will ask you if you want to install this application, which is a little on the nose for an application installer. Tap Install, and wait patiently for it to do its job.
Also, it appears the new boxed set comes packaged with some funky looking dice. Which aren’t at all historically accurate, but look cool.
Beth Noveck, a professor at New York Law School and another organizer of the conference, says those arriving for the three days of panels, discussion and networking are coming to intellectualize about where games and virtual worlds fit into the fabric of their lives.
Unlike strike papers in the past, the Union Record began as an online newspaper, appearing on the Web the first day of the strike and adding a less frequent print edition about a week later.
