Citing the economic downturn, SafeWeb abandoned the free service in November 2001. It has licensed its anonymizing technology to another company, PrivaSec, which currently offers the service for free and plans to charge for it soon.
I’ve seen a lot of iPhone cases and the Alter Ego is a pretty basic one. It’s a flexible silicon skin that’s easy to pop on and off and it’s inexpensive. It will provide basic impact and scratch protection without adding much in the way of bulk or weight, and the silicon combined with a stamped hexagon pattern means your hands can get a good grip on the iPhone — unfortunately, that grippy texture means it can attract dust and dog hair too, but that’s probably a bigger hazard in my house than most.
“If a mark is composed solely of a TLD for ‘domain name registry services’ (e.g., the services currently provided by Network Solutions of registering .com domain names), registration should be refused under Trademark Act … on the ground that the TLD would not be perceived as a mark,” the guidelines state.

The Orbital Reflector project is “a way to do an artwork that exists at and thinks about the scale of the planet,” says Paglen, who was photographed in Studio City, California, in November 2018.
The DHS reorganization devastated employee morale and cost FEMA its coveted direct access to the president as it was subsumed into a new Cabinet department. The General Accounting Office had warned against the move, saying, “Concerns have been raised that with the emphasis on terrorism preparedness in the aftermath of September 11th, the transfer of FEMA to DHS may result in decreased emphasis on mitigation of natural hazards. Opponents of the FEMA transfer, such as a former FEMA director [James Lee Witt], said that activities not associated with homeland security would suffer if relocated to a large department dedicated essentially to issues of homeland security.”
Yesterday over 500 flights got axed, and the airline says they’ll be more cancellations today. Exactly how many remains to be seen, but we did a random check this morning and it wasn’t looking so good. All ten of today’s American flights from New York LaGuardia to Chicago O’Hare are canceled, as are half of the ten non-stops from Dallas to Los Angeles.

Is your media taking up tons of room? The 6 GB shown next to the podcast app includes the dozens of podcasts you’ve downloaded over the year.

My point, which I’ll state here more clearly, is that rather than debating the real issue – what are the proper limits on the autonomous operations of weapons? – we are debating something a tad fantastical, an army of self-directing, lethal machines, deciding when they should kill or not. Terminators, in other words. I realize that debating Terminators is more fun, because it provides such sexy headlines as “Automated killer robots ‘threat to humanity,'” but I’m not sure it really addresses the main issue.
The possibility of buying an off-the-shelf product to make a car talk like the one in the 1980s sitcom Knight Rider is just around the corner.
“I’m having a little film festival,” Pete said, and he was–he planned to call in sick to work and watch all these movies, and copy them, if he could; who knew what kind of bizarre copy protection technology existed in this world?
Fischer was arrested in Japan last year on immigration charges after the United States revoked his passport. From jail, Fischer continued promoting the game he invented.
Those who chose to click saw a page that informed them how many more mouse maneuvers stood between the site and its demise. The numbers slowly became transparent as the number of clicks increased.
Hate him or love him, maverick filmmaker Michael Moore has pwned Hollywood and Washington.
Now WA, the brainchild of genius Steven Wolfram, wants iPhone users to pay $50 to run the website inside a specialized app on their iPhone, rather than using the website for free in a browser. Getting people to pay for equation-solving software is not an odd jump for Wolfram, who made millions selling his Mathematica software for thousands of dollars a pop.
