Hanging out on Pinterest’s website will get you outdoors…
“The industry rules are upside down. However, there are plenty of artists out there who cooperate and even pretend ignorance with the current situation,” Lima said. “There will always be those who want to sleep and wake up as millionaires, with zillions of fans around the world idolizing them. They want to be the next Madonna and Michael Jackson. For how long? Three, six months, until the next one comes around?
Amazon doesn’t carry it. Nor Best Buy, nor Target. GameStop doesn’t carry it. In fact, GameStop currently only lists 595 Wii titles. The ESRB says it’s rated 1421 Wii titles. Since about 500 of those should be downloadable games, that means there’s, oh, 300 Wii games that the nation’s predominant games specialty retailer doesn’t even want to bother with.
“My guess is that in the future this is a tool that legal professionals are really going to use,” says Ted Wang, one of the firm’s partners.
The tiny two-wheeler is automated, storing itself at “iPark” locations. If you feel like driving, the concept features a holographic user interface that allows drivers to control the car through hand gestures. Need room for more people? No problem. Carve out some space in the infinitely configurable “soft sphere” that molds to users’ needs. What makes the idea so cool is it might actually work. Jannarelly tells us the technology behind his idea is available now.
Apple also projected gross margin, a closely watched measure of profitability, of 38% to 38.5%, even to slightly up from 38% in the just-completed quarter.
Classic Ringtones, which offers about 40 different chirps, roars and calls from various animals, is launching in the United States in late November, after pioneering its nature notes in the United Kingdom last year.
A while back the good people at SparkFun asked GeekDad if any of the writers would like to try out their new ProtoSnap line of Arduino-compatible development platforms. Since I have been interested for some time in learning how to make crafts and projects with programmable electronics – and especially since I have no electronics experience whatsoever – I took them up on their offer.
Those iPod addicted folks (who are prone to suffering separation anxiety if they accidentally leave home without their music players) now have several choices of new cars that make it easy to take your tunes on the road.
“The last time I read the exact phrase ‘or at the very least, could cause needless confusion and apprehension’ was three days ago in a Microsoft response to another security related article. It’s their new shrink-wrap response.”
Global warming is simply a “reality,” said Leshner. “I’m sure you can find eight scientists who don’t (agree), but the vast majority of scientists around the world agree about the need for alternative energy sources.”
A spokeswoman for Publicis Media, a division of Publicis Groupe SA, referred calls to Facebook. Publicis was responsible for purchasing roughly $77 billion in ads on behalf of marketers around the world in 2015, according to estimates from research firm RECMA.
Back to business: William Shatner will resume his role as spokesman for Priceline.com, but won’t be singing in the next generation of ads for the name-your-own-price Internet company.
“It was just odd,” Murphy says. “I understand the motivation of people who are trying to qualify to run Boston, or be part of it. You can see the benefit even if you don’t agree with it.” But when it comes to less prestigious races like cartoon character-themed 5Ks, “this is the stuff that’s beyond me.”
“While the internet should be free, it should not be lawless,” Smith, the committee’s chairman from Texas, said.
To reform the agency, President Bill Clinton brought in an old friend—like so many of his predecessors—but that friend turned out to be perhaps FEMA’s most effective leader in its history. James Lee Witt seemed perhaps an odd fit at first. A Skoal-dipping son of a farmer who became known in the capital for his ostrich-skin boots and Southern drawl, he had never graduated from college, but he had a forceful personality and a strong background in emergency management from Arkansas. In short order Witt reshuffled nearly 80 percent of the agency’s senior leadership. FEMA streamlined its public mission to just four priorities that would become familiar hallmarks in the years ahead: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Witt launched a public relations campaign on Capitol Hill to reassure representatives and senators that their states would get the help they needed.
According to Thompson, the U.S., bankruptcy courts are likely to favor dollar liabilities over bitcoin liabilities. But he doesn’t know what would happen in Japan, Mt. Gox’s home, and he believes that bitcoin debts could still create some problems in the U.S. For example, courts deal with government backed currencies all the time, but as they’re liquidating assets, how do they figure out what any owed bitcoins are worth? If investors truly think Gox is going out of business and that the price of bitcoin is going to crash because of Gox’s problems, it could make sense to lock in their U.S. dollars right now.
This same mindset is accurately reflected in the media where even strong environmental links to disease often receive little attention, while speculative genetic associations can be front page news.
Readers will be able to search and view the Post’s editorial and news coverage, and sports and gossip columns on the Internet in the original printed format from the paper’s almost 200-year-old archive.
So Graham’s team arranged a study at Twitter’s UK headquarters. One hundred and fourteen people participated, in groups of around twenty. Videos of the sessions show people putting on the helmets, which look like a cross between a Snoopy-style Red Baron helmet and a polka dot shower cap destined for Katy Perry’s cranium in a music video.
Another woman told Wu, “I heard so many bad things about the internet and MySpace … I see in the news all the time how dangerous it is.”
I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell –
“FUCK YOU IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A JOKE!” Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad! You’ve got to say, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to put up with these overly sensitive morons who can’t take a joke anymore”. Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the assholes who look at you funny. But first get up out of your chairs, stand up in your cubicles, put down your bongs, zip up your pants and yell, ‘”FUCK YOU IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A JOKE!”
The fact that these sculptures happen to look like jellyfish is a happy accident.
All of that suggests, if it weren’t already clear, that those seeking a security audit should probably not engage a group of anonymous, lawbreaking Twitter-defacement artists. But OurMine does offer some real security lessons, free of charge: Don’t reuse passwords between sites, set up two-factor authentication, and be aware that linking accounts can lead to unexpected security risks. Your Twitter account, as OurMine has successfully taught Sunder Pichai free of charge, is only as secure as the least-secure account that can post to it.
“We remain on the sidelines until we see signs of re-acceleration in user growth, an inflection on Snap pricing… and/or get closer to the end of the lock-up expiration,” Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Kip Paulson said in a research note on Monday, lowering his price target to $15 from $17.
We’re talking about the differences between print and online media, when Morrissey offhandedly mentions that Broadly won’t have comments. “When women are speaking online, it’s such a lightning rod for every angle—other feminists are telling you you’re not doing feminism properly, MRAs are coming in and calling you a fat whore,” she says, describing the constant abuse and harassment that she saw as an editor in the comments at Jezebel. “No comments on Broadly,” she says, matter of factly. “That was that.”
When he went to film the segment, he was struck by the energy of the kids and the pastor. “Their spirit was different, their attitude was different, their vernacular was different. It was just very refreshing,” he says. Soon, Soto was volunteering for the church—drawing on the technology skills he’d picked up as a kid, tinkering on his dad’s computer—and developing online worship tools to post sermons and build apps. The lead pastor was so impressed that he created a special residency program that would allow Soto to become a pastor. Eventually, he was tasked with launching a new branch of the church on a $500,000 budget. Soto spent two years setting it up and three years pastoring, but quickly he was itching to do something more.
Mr. Cook’s annual compensation is lower than that of other Apple executives, but that number is somewhat misleading because of the big restricted-stock grant he received in 2011. Last August, 1.26 million shares of the stock vested and were valued at about $135 million. Mr. Cook sold $36 million in shares and forfeited another $71 million to cover taxes, according to a filing in August.
San Francisco – Wired magazine’s fourth annual Rave Awards on Monday night was possibly the splashiest party Silicon Valley has seen for a couple of years: a sign, the magazine says, of an economic turnaround.
Owen’s parents believe drawing patent applications and thinking of new inventions is a great way for Owen to focus his energy, which might otherwise get him in to trouble. They created a workspace for him in the basement, an orderly table with discarded electronics in various states of disassembly, set amidst his sisters’ dollhouses and toys. It’s where Owen learned to solder, and where he recently spent an afternoon swapping out a blown fuse in a scrapped TV he and his dad picked from the trash during a father-son expedition to the dump.
Moshe Pritsker and Nikita Bernstein have launched a website where biologists share video clips of their research procedures. JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, is currently home to dozens of highly technical movies filmed in the labs of top universities. Although this could be a source of entertainment for science nerds, the site’s main goal is to make it easier for scientists across the globe to share research methods.
Even if he wins, according to the North Carolina statute he’s suing under, Pugh stands to net a whopping $80. That’s $10 for each of eight e-mails he received.
Joltage, founded by Andrew Weinreich (founder of the defunct SixDegrees.com) combines Weinreich’s penchant for viral marketing with a user-friendly payback scheme. The company provides a free software download that lets Wi-Fi base operators set up controlled access to their network for laptop-toting Joltage subscribers, who pay $1.99 per hour or $24.99 per month for the privilege.
