Although, GPS does not use special relativity in it’s function – it has to account for it in order to function – If special relativity did not exist, gps would still be possible.
Using stop-motion animation and imagery from Google Maps Street View, director Tony Jenkins provides a look at how a lonely desk toy manages to escape his confined world and take a cross country drive to the Pacific coast.
Congressman Paul held himself well against the interviewer’s obvious attempt to discredit.
“The only way to remove Carrier IQ is with advanced skills,” Eckhart wrote in a report, published on the Web on Monday. “If you choose to void your warranty and unlock your bootloader you can (mostly) remove Carrier IQ.”
The software, Carrier IQ, tracked the location of the phone, what keys were pressed, which Web pages were visited, when calls were placed, and other information on how the device is used and when.
Eckhart discovered that Carrier IQ can be shown as present on the phone to users or configured as hidden, which was the case on the HTC phones he analyzed. And he found what he described as “leaked training documents” that indicate that carriers can view customer usage information via a remote portal that displays devices by equipment ID and subscriber ID.
A helpful YouTube video put out by the Bank of Canada explains the new security features. For example, a suspicious money taker should note that although the polymer bill is nice and smooth, there should be raised ink on the big number 100, the “Bank of Canada” text and the shoulders of the portrait of Sir Robert Borden, the prime minister of Canada from 1911 to 1920.
There are also two transparent windows on the note — one small one depicts a frosted maple leaf, the other extends the height of the bill, and has a copy of the portrait toward the top of the window, and an image of a building at the bottom. If you move the bill the colors of the building will change a lot, while the color changes on the portrait are more subtle.
MIT student Tyler Christensen created a musical Tesla coil hat for his Halloween costume (it played the Mortal Kombat theme and the Harry Potter theme while discharging semi-tam lightning). While freely stipulating that this is “a really bad idea,” Tyler is still generous enough to document his project for others who might follow in his bad footsteps.
Really, it’s just a DRSSTC. Nothing less, nothing more, nothing fancy. It was a bit tricky to make a bridge appropriately sized, and even harder to make a boost converter for it. In fact, the boost never truly worked. If I play a mid to high note for a few seconds, the boost can’t keep up and it fades away. I think this is due to saturation of my boost core, but I haven’t really taken the time to do much on this since now I’m back in the gate driver world and also have to throw together my 6.131 power electronics final project. I’ll fix hatcoil in February.
If you’re thinking about getting the Fire, you have to decide not just whether you want a tablet, but what kind of tablet you want. This isn’t an iPad-killer. It has the potential to do lots of things, but there are many things I have yet to see it do, and I wonder if it will get there given the lean software support. It’s my impression that Amazon believes that the Fire will be so popular that developers will choose to work on its platform rather than on Google’s main trunk of Android, but that’s just a theory right now.
Still, there’s no question that the Fire is a really terrific tablet for its price. The amount of content you have access to — and the ease of getting to that content — is notable to say the least. The device is decently designed, and the software — while lacking some polish — is still excellent compared to pretty much anything in this range (and that includes the Nook Color). It’s a well thought out tablet that can only get better as the company refines the software. It’s not perfect, but it’s a great start, and at $200, that may be all Amazon needs this holiday shopping season.

Debutante plagiarist Q.R. Markham’s temporarily-lauded spy thriller, Assassin of Secrets, is in fact a string of passages lifted from other books in the genre. No-one noticed until it was released, at which time readers noticed at once.
The book’s been recalled by publisher Little, Brown, whose president, Michael Pietsch, apologized in a prepared statement: “We take great pride in the writers and books we publish and tremendous care in every aspect of our publishing process, so it is with deep regret that we have published a book that we can no longer stand behind. Our goal is to never have this happen, but when it does, it is important to us to communicate with and compensate readers and retailers as quickly as possible.”
The author represented others’ work as his own, deceived and embarrassed those he worked with, and created a nightmare for his publisher, and deserves no sympathy or respect.
