The failure of HealthCare.gov gave words to a feeling people already had. Ease of use has become paramount. The prevailing, and I think correct, sentiment is that if it’s difficult to use, it’s a badly designed product – it’s the designer’s fault, not my own. The age of spending hours programming a VCR is over.
The call-out version of #HimToo is still the hashtag’s dominant use, regardless of the tweeter’s politics. For every #HimToo tweet seeking to remind people that President Trump has been accused of assault, there are others using the hashtag to criticize left-leaning figures like Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau (who has been accused of groping) or US senator Kirsten Gillibrand (who has worked with Bill Clinton despite his sexual history).
“Good morning and thank you all for coming today,” Jobs says. “We want to kick off 2010 with a magical truly revolutionary product today. But first I have some updates.”
“As soon as you flip that switch and go away from the Android Market, which is the one place where most people go, then you are putting yourself at some risk,” Miller said.
The expo, expected to draw 15 million visitors, continues a long tradition of World’s Fairs as showcases for new technological frontiers. The steam engine, telephone, fluorescent lighting, the television – even the hamburger – were all innovations unveiled at fairs past.
Polyvore drives millions of clicks to such pages every month. Its engineers have invested hundreds of hours in making these revenue-generating links robust. Even if a retailer changes the web address of a product, as happens frequently, Polyvore’s software bots will quickly find the new product address and rewrite the links.
The red carpet arrivals—in which eerily over-smiling, Muppet-like creatures awkwardly ask famous people about international events—will begin with E! Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2019 Golden Globe Awards. That special airs Sunday, starting at 1pm Pacific (4pm Eastern), and you can watch it on E!, or on the network’s smartphone app. If you can only find time for a few red carpet looks, or even slayalicious lewks, there are multiple specials airing closer to the show’s starting time: E!’s Live From the Red Carpet—also on the network’s smartphone app—starts at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern). Meanwhile, NBC’s own arrivals show starts at 4pm Pacific (7pm Eastern) on the website, the network’s app, and its Facebook page.
Some users were surprised to find out that Microsoft believes that using the back button is not a standard, best security practice.
But let’s look on the positive side. Plenty of other foreigners have been hung and a Malaysian teenager is currently on death row waiting to come of age before being executed. That’s got to count for something!
SAN FRANCISCO – The Apple booth at the center of the expo floor here at Macworld could be likened to a supernova – a bright star, overheated with all that excitement for the new pivot-arm iMac, whose gravity draws in Macheads from all corners of the show.
How did I do? I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves. And if anyone better understands what the “Age Grade” percentage is, do tell. I found this tool, but I’m still not 100% understanding of it. I’ve never run a race that provided this information.
The increase would be the first in two years for Netflix, although it won’t seem that way for millions of subscribers. That’s because Netflix temporarily froze its rates for long-time subscribers the last two times it raised its prices, delaying the most recent increases until the second half of last year for them.
The second gadget, ThumbDrive from Trek 2000 International, eschews the pen design for an even smaller footprint – or fingerprint. The ThumbDrive weighs in at just 18 grams and is roughly the size of the human digit for which it was named. It plugs into the USB port, and has a capacity of up to 256 MB.
Schroepfer also wrote that apps will no longer be able to access certain information like religious or political views, relationship status and details, custom friends lists, education, and work history. The changes could have wide-reaching consequences for apps that often rely on this data, including Tinder. The dating app previously included work and education history on users’ dating profiles, though it’s not clear whether this feature is causing the glitch. “This was part of the changes that we announced today, and we are working with Tinder to address this issue,” a Facebook spokesperson said to WIRED in a statement. Tinder did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but a tweet from its official Twitter account acknowledged that “a technical issue is preventing users from logging into Tinder.”
The Mueller investigation has lasted so long, it’s easy to forget that it’ll end at some point. In fact, according to recent reports, it may wrap up as early as next week. But what does that mean exactly? We took a look at seven distinct possibilities, from fizzle to fireworks. As though the border wall “national emergency” wasn’t enough to worry about.
