White declined to comment on the sweet-heart contract and said he did not believe, but would check, whether Desyne is running the TRIP website.
Thomson, which owns the RCA brand, will sell the players in some Wal-Mart and Kmart stores as well as on Wal-Mart’s website starting this month even as the filtering software they employ faces a legal challenge from Hollywood.
But Kobeissi also knows that it’s equally important that Cryptocat be usable and pretty. Kobeissi wants Cryptocat to be something you want to use, not just need to. Encrypted chat tools have existed for years — but have largely stayed in the hands of geeks, who usually aren’t the ones most likely to need strong crypto. “Security is not just good crypto. It’s very important to have good crypto, and audit it. Security is not possible without (that), but security is equally impossible without making it accessible.”
Revenue grew to $23.20 billion from $18.53 billion, also topping the $22.01 billion forecast by analysts.
But Scrivener is more than just a file-browser and word processor, it lets you sort and organize your documents using virtual index cards to store a synopsis for every document you create. To storyboard your ideas just drag them around and rearrange them on the corkboard.
Sony claimed the rootkit didn’t phone home when it did. On Nov. 4, Thomas Hesse, Sony BMG’s president of global digital business, demonstrated the company’s disdain for its customers when he said, “Most people don’t even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it?” in an NPR interview. Even Sony’s apology only admits that its rootkit “includes a feature that may make a user’s computer susceptible to a virus written specifically to target the software.”
10:11 am: Apple’s Mac market share is now 23%, so nearly 1 out of every 4 computers sold in the U.S. is a Mac.

The Halo movie will be shot in Wellington, New Zealand, and will use Jackson’s production and post-production facilities there.
Don’t expect your favorite band to delete its MySpace page any time soon, but the general social network is no longer the latest word in fan outreach. Artists and their labels increasingly see dedicated websites as destinations in their own right, for fans who want to get close to a band, together, without distractions from general content and other people.
Before 2010, there weren’t many gadgets on Kickstarter. It was mostly still a place for music and movies. So when Glif did well, other would-be designers and makers began to copy Gerhardt and Provost’s method. The video style, the contribute-to-preorder gambit, that’s all Kickstarter For Dummies stuff now. Back then it was brand new. “By instinct,” says John Dimatos, Kickstarter’s director for design and tech communities, “they created a lot of the tropes on Kickstarter.”
After setting up for our second gig of the day, Scott began to thumb through the used CD section of our evening venue. When he pulled a country blues album by Skip James from the rack, I asked if he had ever listened to Kelly Joe Phelps (Phelps is relatively obscure artist who happens to be the single biggest influence on my own guitar playing). Scott’s eyes lit up and we made an instant geek guitar connection. We went on to geek out over some of our favorite players like Bill Frisell, Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Willie Mctell and Robert Johnson. It reminded me that you can be a geek about anything, not just tech and Science Fiction.
The unusual strategy of removing a popular branding icon from an ad underscores a frustrating problem for Ask Jeeves, which is unique in that encourages surfers to submit search requests in question form. Although the company says its search engine is “second to none,” it isn’t getting much respect.
“Social media has allowed [hate groups] to spread and share their messages in ways that was never before possible,” says Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, which has tracked anti-Semitism and hate for more than a century. “They’ve moved from the margins into the mainstream.”
However, Buffett’s IBM position has severely underperformed the market over the past five years, even if you factor in dividends.
Pete closed the laptop gently. “I do know movies,” he said. “Just not exactly the same ones you do.”
Zuckerberg Media Founder and CEO Randi Zuckerberg says American companies need to make investments to close an expanding technology “skills gap.”
Telvent, which is owned by Schneider Electric, told customers in a letter that on Sept. 10 it learned of the breach into its network. The attackers installed malicious software on the network and also accessed project files for its OASyS SCADA system, according to KrebsOnSecurity, which first reported the breach.
I don’t think I could tell you what we’re going to be working on a year from now though – we have too many ideas to finish at any one given time: Rodain’s currently messing with a card game that rides the line between co-op and vs play. Marc wants to finish The Lost Fleet and talks about multiplayer emergence a lot. I’m curious to see what happens when you merge RTS and fighting games, or what a game that’s built around thought processes looks like. Picking something to dedicate 2 years of our lives to is something that players do best.
“The enthusiasm of current users certainly bodes well for the future,” IDC’s Ireland said. “It’s just taking some time for the product to catch on with the mass market.”
Now we’re taking a look at a demo of a game called Clumsy Ninja. The character is based on a real-time simulation of the body, he’s aware of his environment, self aware, and fully interactive. This game looks super cute, I can’t wait to check it out. He’s based on many years of research, on technology that not too long ago would have required a super computer.
To summarize: if the incidences of mass shootings in the US match a Poisson distribution, then this argues that the streaks (years with unusually high number of shootings) are expected due to chance. If the data doesn’t fit a Poisson distribution, then this suggests that it violates one of the assumptions – either mass shootings are not independent events, or the rate is falling, or it’s on the rise.
“It’s a great team, but I worry that you guys are selling to content publishers, and I could only connect you to ecommerce customers.”
“Wonderful technology, but you guys are working in ecommerce, and my whole network is content publishing.”
Buytaert: We are working on Drupal 7 right now. We’ll have a better database abstraction layer, better support for WYSIWYG tools and usability improvements for admins that make it easier to configure Drupal.
By that summer, Lee’s alleged fraud had become one of Korea’s top news items. Death threats streamed in, and Lee found himself accosted by angry people on the street. Since his face was so recognizable, he became a virtual prisoner in his Seoul apartment. In a matter of weeks, he went from being one of the most beloved figures in the country to one of the most reviled.
Our generation has been lucky to grow up in a time where we did not see the effects, first-hand, of the diseases that vaccines protect us against. Our parents’ generation was not so lucky. I had a teacher who was crippled because of polio. It would be terrible if we had to see these effects, once again, in order to get the necessary incentive to protect our children from these diseases. Already, the cases of measles and whooping cough have increased in the United States, with nearly 50% of those who contracted measles in the last few months ending up in hospital and a number of babies hospitalized and dying from whooping cough.
When asked for comment by FOXBusiness.com the major U.S. wireless carriers directed us to the FCC’s website for more information.
Insult your friends for buying cheap, utilitarian cars by giving them an obviously-fake Decano ricer sunroof. Usually bought to massage injured self-esteem, sent as a gift it becomes a gesture of reptilian disdain.
The conference starts Monday in San Jose, California. The idea is to get outside software programmers geared up to write apps for Apple products.

SAN FRANCISCO – Mark Sargent thinks he’s the strangest thing on Craigslist.org. He says as much after slipping a Led Zeppelin track into a music deck and belting out a hearty show-tune rendition of “Rock and Roll” while channeling the voice of Ethel Merman.
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Chief Executive Steve Ballmer will likely begin to internally outline his plans to restructure the software giant by July 1, according to a report from All Things Digital.
Knowing how much money is spent for which programs, and where, is a great start. Knowing what good, if any, spending that money accomplishes would be even better. Web 2.0 technology can help citizens process and understand political donations, government contracts and programs, and performance metrics in all sorts of important and novel ways.
iCast-away: The great iCast plan to have the music labels pay the CMGI company for marketing came to a final, crashing halt this week.
That’s starting to change. Michelin recently introduced its Vision concept tire, a one-piece wheel-and-tire combo that’s “airless, connected, rechargeable, customizable, and organic.” The rechargeable part means that the tread can be changed to adapt to various road conditions, climates, and driving styles. But the French tire giant mentioned at the unveiling of the concept in June that it could be at least 10 years or more before the technology sees the light of day.
In any case, I highly recommend this film. It may or may not change your mind if you’re a skeptic. (So, you know, it’s safe….) But the footage and film will likely blow your mind regardless.
Such approval is necessary, T-Mobile added, “to protect the carrier and its customers from potentially illegal, fraudulent, or offensive marketing campaigns conducted on its network.”
