Tech Giants Join Microsoft In Calling For US Gov To End Use Of Warrants To Demand Overseas Data | TechCrunch

Why do companies give a whit if their data overseas is out of the reach of the United States government? Read the question again, and see if you don’t have your answer. Glibness aside, tech companies are now segregating data for certain clients. European firms don’t want to use a storage solution that the United States government can easily demand access to.

Galaxy Tab S: Samsung takes on the iPad - Telegraph

The challenge, however, is to convince consumers that this tablet, costing from $399 but with a European price as yet unannounced, is worth paying for. Research into consumer buying habits suggests tablets find themselves increasingly dismissed as either an iPad or not, so Samsung has sought to augment its screen quality with a series of content deals, providing users with a free, subscription to publications as diverse as The Economist and The Washington Post, as well as monthly free books from Amazon via the Kindle app and free copies of popular games such as Cut the Rope. But the Android tablet operating system still lacks the appealing apps for larger devices, even though it has caught up with Apple in smartphone apps.

The model also has rectangular volume buttons on the left, and the camera and LED at the back. The LED is circular in shape and not elongated like the iPhone 5s. It could suggest that Apple has managed to make changes to the TrueTone flash, which was first introduced last year in iPhone 5s to make it circular.

Scientists Discover Vast 'Ocean' Hidden Deep Underground

"Geological processes on the Earth’s surface, such as earthquakes or erupting volcanoes, are an expression of what is going on inside the Earth, out of our sight," geophysicist Dr. Steven Jacobsen , an associate professor at Northwestern University, said in a written statement. "I think we are finally seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water cycle, which may help explain the vast amount of liquid water on the surface of our habitable planet. Scientists have been looking for this missing deep water for decades ."

E3 2014: Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo 5 Beta Announced for Xbox One - IGN

So, will the massive list of content and features in Master Chief Collection be enough to stoke software sales, or even convince Xbox 360 gamers who haven’t yet upgraded to the new system to take the (now $399) plunge? That remains to be seen. As fan-pleasing as this package is, it is, at the end of the day, four old games. But where Microsoft sees this disc as a one-stop shop for new Xbox One owners to get up to speed for Halo 5, I see it as something else. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is for us old-school original Xbox gamers – the ones who always wanted to play Halo: CE multiplayer online and the ones who wish the Halo 2 servers had never been taken down. It's for us, and if the first two Halos in particular play as authentically as 343 claims – I won’t know for sure until I’m given the chance to put my own hands on it – then it’s going to make a lot of veteran Xbox gamers very, very happy.

Uber's driver wasn’t familiar with The Shard , a towering glass structure that is one of the most recognizable landmarks in London. The driver took a different route from the other two, which ended up taking twice as much time. The fare was 60% more than the other trips because of a premium Uber charges for busy times.

Google Fiber franchise wins approval from Portland City Council -- Here's what's next

Clarification: The $300 million cost figure appeared, during Henry's prerecorded testimony, to be a firm commitment of Google's minimum investment in the Portland network should it decide to proceed. But the city and Google said afterward that the dollar figure is an estimate by city staff, not a figure provided by Google. The article has been updated to reflect that.)

Two years later and the space agency hasn't built a spaceship capable of such speeds yet — but thanks to artist Mark Rademaker,  we now know what one could look like . The result is the IXS Enterprise, a ship that shares similarities with both its science fiction Star Trek namesake, and NASA's real-world space shuttle.

When we’re comfortable, we’ll announce a release date."

You give Facebook a lot of information. Here are five things the social network knows about you. - WSJ

Facebook prompts members to indicate their favorite movies, songs and more. Did you tell Facebook you like “Game of Thrones?” Then expect ads about fantasy books. If you opt in to a new feature, Facebook may figure out you are watching “Game of Thrones” by using your device’s microphone and recognizing the theme song as you type a status update. A lot of this information can be gleaned through the seemingly simple act of “liking” something. If you like a lot of Republicans politicians but no Democrats, then you are sending a message about your political affiliations.

Dear Google: don't screw up Android

The history of Android has always been about more . From its inception with the T-Mobile G1 in 2008, Google’s mobile operating system has sought to compete by having more features, higher specs, and bigger devices than everyone else. Improving relentlessly with each new release, Android’s rise has produced excellent new phones but also many disappointed users who were either left on an old version of the software or bought a device that was never good enough in the first place. Late last year, Google sought to correct that by putting the brakes on and introducing Android 4.4 KitKat , an OS update that was about less .

Is it right to jail someone for being offensive on Facebook or Twitter?

But if free speech is threatened, where are its defenders? When asked to comment on last week's sentence, Index on Censorship chief executive Jodie Ginsberg said the CPS had ignored its own guidelines, which was "highly damaging for free expression in this country". But beyond a tight circle of specialists, reaction to the jailing of two men for posts made after Maguire's murder has been muted, which is perhaps more surprising in light of Facebook's decision to reject complaints about Newsome's post and leave it online, on grounds that it doesn't violate the company's community standards. In other words, a post regarded by the British state as so far beyond the pale that its author has gone to prison is still allowed on Facebook. Facebook's director of public policy in Europe, Richard Allan, who is also a Lib Dem member of the House of Lords, declined to comment, though a spokesperson stressed that Facebook is making efforts to educate users about the possible consequences of social media use.

12 Hidden Tricks Advertisers Use to Sell You Stuff | Design | WIRED

The best way to get you to buy something is to make you believe you don’t have to buy it. Advertisers have mastered the art of reverse psychology, and it works to their advantage. The fact is, nobody likes to be told what to do. “No one likes to feel like they’re being persuaded,” explains Andrews. Which is why advertisers try to convince you that you have a choice in the matter. Transparency, or a brand acknowledging its shortcomings is one way they go about it. Another is saying things like, “you’re free to go with that other vacuum” or “I know you might not agree to this, but…” By playing to the fact that consumers don’t want to be persuaded, advertisers are, in fact, persuading you to like their brand.

House Republicans push to roll back nutrition standards for school meals

A study released in March by the Harvard School of Public Health supports Vilsack: It found that children’s consumption of fruits and vegetables increased significantly following the law’s passage.  It also debunks the School Nutrition Association’s claim that the new rules have led to more wasted food because children are rejecting the healthier options.

29 Because We're Happy: Using Social Media to Turn Audiences Around

The answer lies in the structure of social media and the power of social monitoring systems.  While most people know about social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, these are a small part of the social landscape. The social pyramid, as I define it, is six different levels where very different types of conversations occur. At the top, there are the social networking sites where conversations are fast, shallow and trending. A new study shows many companies use social media to advertise and communicate with followers and customers.

E3 2014: Assassin's Creed Unity Co-op Revealed - IGN

The action looks quintessential Assassin's Creed; silently moving through thick crowds, acting inconspicuously, and then suddenly, you strike. Only two assassins are shown at first, as they make their way through the crowd gathered outside of the palace, only to set things off by suddenly (and simultaneously) stabbing two guards. With the die cast, the two men begin scaling a nearby wall and enter the palace itself, where things get even bloodier.

12 Perfect Grad Gifts for the Aspiring Entrepreneur

One of the best gifts you can get an aspiring entrepreneur is a large whiteboard and dry-erase markers in a fun variety of colors.

In a high-tech world, an old-school whiteboard and pen set may seem like a silly gift for an entrepreneur, but it will quickly become one of their most used tools in the early stages of ideating and starting up! — Doreen Bloch , Poshly Inc.

The Military History of 'Leave No Man Behind'

The Black Hawk Down incident was a hostage rescue, while The Great Raid was an attempt to free prisoners of war. Though the two are distinct, The Great Raid was conducted because the lives of prisoners at Cabanatuan were thought to be in danger, just like Durant's life was in Somalia. According to U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, the American military decided to swap Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl in part because a video of Bergdahl from January, 2014 showed him to be deteriorating mentally and physically.

Mozilla under fire: Inside the 9-day reign of fallen CEO Brendan Eich - CNET

Instead, Eich was tapping out emails as he worked to dampen the firestorm over his long-held opposition to gay marriage. Many in and around the Mozilla community were incensed, even though his personal views on the issue were old news. His beliefs first surfaced when Eich was chief technology officer for Mozilla, and revered as the father of the most popular programming language for the Web. But after his appointment as CEO, the scrutiny became broader and more intense, and the story about his stance on gay marriage went viral.

Google’s New All-Seeing Satellites Have Huge Potential—For Good and Evil | Business | WIRED

But people may find the idea of Google looking down from the heavens on their physical selves more discomfiting than peering through their browsers at their virtual personas.

Why Your Company Needs To Measure Employee Engagement

Interviewee : Cool. Yeah, I mean, I love the product and I’m psyched to help build it out. I could stand being trapped in an airport with you guys. Can you give me a better idea of how emotionally equipped everyone is to handle the highs and lows? Would you say you are interested in my personal and professional development? Do you envision us all working together for the long haul or do you think of me as a great person to initiate getting your startup off the ground and running and then making over the team with a whole new set of people once you get funding? I just want to know how much I can personally afford to invest emotionally before I commit fully.

Clever piece of code exposes hidden changes to Supreme Court opinions

WhoBel, I won’t disagree with your argument except to point out that you are assuming a perfect world where every entity has good intentions and perfect competence. One could in theory impose this requirement on the Supreme Court, but then you would still be depending on SCOTUS to do what is required – in effect, to police itself. In order to be sure SCOTUS followed through, you would still need independent verification. That is one reason the First Amendment exists: a free press is a check on what the government does. Since you are not a US citizen, you may not appreciate the degree to which the framers feared centralized government power and the lengths they went to protect the people from it. (Sadly, way too many US citizens lack the same appreciation.)

3D-print with Nutella: Paste extruder takes on Play-Doh, icing - CNET

The extruder is designed to work with most stepper-based (a type of motor) 3D desktop printers. If your printer uses regular plastic filament, it will probably work just fine with the Discov3ry. You will have to make adjustments to your printing parameters to accommodate the squishiness of the type of paste material you're working with. Structur3d Printing, the company behind the extruder, says it will provide guidance on dialing in the proper settings and choosing the proper extruder tip to handle the viscosity of the material.
