In one case, the source said that the founders were looking for ways to cut costs, and opted to scale back the customer service team. It was expensive to hire people to answer the phones and listen to customers’ issues from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. across multiple time zones.

Gibson’s vision is to monetize news content on the backend, by scouring the internet for infringing copies of his client’s articles, then suing and relying on the harsh penalties in the Copyright Act – up to $150,000 for a single infringement – to compel quick settlements.

Aas doesn’t pretend that all Let’s-Encrypt-certified sites are benevolent. “People ask if the bad guys use Let’s Encrypt. The answer is basically ‘yeah,'” he says. “But they’re also using a server, an ISP, a domain name. [An HTTPS] certificate is only a small part of their plan, and taking it away wouldn’t really change what’s going on.”
First up will be the latest Tamagotchi itself, V4.5.

Anderson: Let’s talk about where all this is headed. You’ve brought the cost of rocket launches down by a factor of 10. Suppose you can bring it down even more. How does that change the game?

Two confirmed cases with the deadly new strain of TB have been detected at the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases (RGICD) in Bangalore. But the scarier scenario is this: one among them, a 56-year-old man (the hospital has not disclosed his name), has gone absconding, raising the threat perception many levels higher, considering that he could infect others with the deadly strain.
