“These are extraordinary circumstances under which we are going to let things slide and we would allow them to switch jobs without leaving the country, even if they have been unemployed for a while,” she added.
“You would think a site that likes to mock people, such as gawker, would have better security and actually have a clue what they are doing. But as we’ve proven, those who think they are beyond our reach aren’t as safe as they would like to think!”
That’s what resonated with me as I read Reavill’s book. It’s not a diatribe against the porn machine or an attempt to impose one uniform set of morals on a million other people.
Heusinger said 12 male readers had sent in applications, which included nude photographs, to have sex with a woman columnist named Shelley Masters.
The unusual move by the three-judge panel cheered attorneys for 2600 magazine, which is defending a lawsuit brought by movie studios over the DeCSS utility it distributed.
On a hunch that the building would be targeted by coalition bombers – Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf occupied offices three floors below – Harif had spent the night in an SCIS service center in Baghdad’s Hay Al-Adel district, where he could remotely monitor the ISP’s servers.
The idea came to Gronquist when he had a taxidermied antelope in his studio. He told Wired.co.uk: “I started wondering what it might be like in a future where animals had evolved to fight back. I call it ‘absurdist futurism.’ The iconic logo-horned animals derive from my dreams about the future of branding, which I like to think will include genetic branding.”
Other websites have not gone so far as to formalize the policy, but other sites have begun to publish more “reviews in progress”—stories that evaluate the game when the review embargo goes up, but refrain from rendering a final judgment until the writer has had more time with the final product.
Some like Dobush quit the site. But that hasn’t really mattered to Etsy. In the end, the change increased the number of people using the site and increased revenues—as it was designed to do. According to the company’s IPO filing, revenues reached $74.6 million in 2012 and $125 million in 2013. Last year, after the change in policy, they topped $195 million.
On their website, OpenBCI has made the hardware design and interface software open source, and with a bit of handiness and access to a 3-D printer, you could be controlling—and tinkering with—robot arms from the comfort of your own home.
Later today, senators Markey and Blumenthal intend to reveal new legislation designed to tighten cars’ protections against hackers. The bill (which a Markey spokesperson insists wasn’t timed to this story) will call on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Trade Commission to set new security standards and create a privacy and security rating system for consumers. “Controlled demonstrations show how frightening it would be to have a hacker take over controls of a car,” Markey wrote in a statement to WIRED. “Drivers shouldn’t have to choose between being connected and being protected…We need clear rules of the road that protect cars from hackers and American families from data trackers.”
Bivings denies all of the allegations and calls them “egregious” in a letter to the editor of the Guardian, which ran the letter today.
On May 24, as Weldon tried to persuade members of the House of Representatives that embryonic stem-cell research was not only unethical but unnecessary, he held up a poster-size image of himself standing beside Fajt, who is clutching a walker in the photo.
The program saves the files as animated gifs – which is delightfully old school – but I have been experimenting with possible conversion tools and you can get some slightly pixilated, but decent avi files out of it. The reason for this is my boys now want to include sound effects. So, I’m looking for a simple video editing tool so we can see if they can manage that.
What Happened: The administration rolled out what it was calling its tax reform agenda, which went about as well as should be expected.
Where It Blew Up: Twitter, media reports
What Really Happened: After a surprise announcement last week, the Trump administration followed through on its promise to release its tax plan. Kind of.
Of course, if this was Sanders’ way of ceding the party’s power to Clinton, the Clinton camp may be wildly disappointed. Sanders said he is committed to working with Clinton to defeat Donald Trump, but refused to endorse her. He insisted he’s still taking his fight to the convention to pass a progressive platform, though he knows as well as anyone that the nominee can abide by the platform—or not—once the general election is underway.
On the other hand, the FTC maintains an enormous database of spam that sees 40,000 new e-mails every day.
What Really Happened: Laying the groundwork for this winter’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the Pottermore website this week launched History of Magic in North America, a new multiple-part series of faux essays by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling in which she built a new mythology of magic for the other side of the Atlantic. You might imagine such a thing would have fans howling in glee, but it turned out that their yells had an entirely different purpose.
One aspect of the exhibit that could have been somewhat cool but ended up being a distraction was the “Explorer’s Card” you can obtain at a station where you first come in. At several of the other stations you’re invited to insert your Explorer’s Card, which records some of the data you’re reviewing, saves videos you record and so on for you to review at home. As of this post, the system still isn’t up and running, and it seems to me I spent more time playing with the card than actually absorbing information.
