Nut Cheerios and oysters and penicillin and just about any other product you can think of. According to Hodes the magic of pallets is the magic of abstraction. "Take any object you like, pile it onto a pallet, and it becomes, simply, a "unit load"—standardized, cubical, and ideally suited to being scooped up by the tines of a forklift. This allows your Cheerios and your oysters to be whisked through the supply chain with great efficiency; the gains are so impressive, in fact, that many experts consider the pallet to be the most important materials-handling innovation of the twentieth...

Sony hack was 'cyberThe hack of Sony Pictures, blamed on North Korea by the FBI, was not an act of war, President Obama said in an interview broadcast on Sunday. "I don't think it was an act of war," he told CNN's "State... of the Union with Candy Crowley" in an interview that was recorded on Friday. "I think it was an act of cyber vandalism that was very costly, very expensive. We take it very seriously. We will respond proportionately, as I said." Obama's remarks are important for framing what might come next. One of the possibilities, he said, was a return of North Korea to the U.S. state sponsors of terrorism list, which automatically imposes certain sanctions on the country and restrictions on interaction with U.S. organizations.

Police don't have a motive for the shootings, but Brinsley had a long criminal record--he was arrested for robbery charges in Ohio in 2009 and served two years in prison for felony gun possession in Georgia--and had made anti-police messages on Instagram the day of the shooting.

Cuba Says the Internet Now a Priority

Slashdot - 21 Dec 2014 23:10
lpress writes Cuba first connected to the Internet in 1996 through a Sprint link funded by the US National Science Foundation. A year later the Cuban government decided to contain and control it. Now... they say the Internet is a priority. If so, they need a long term plan, but they can get started with low cost interim measures. There is virtually no modern infrastructure on the island, but they could aggressively deploy satellite technology at little cost and, where phone lines could support it, install DSL equipment.

François Beaufort, who works on Google's Chromium open-source browser, announced on Friday that new... developer builds of the Chromebook's software let you ask it whatever you want using the "OK Google" voice commands. According to Beaufort, the Chromebook's support for "OK Google" queries is only included in Dev Channel builds and it's "experimental" for now. It's also pretty well hidden. Beaufort describes: "Try out the experimental new version of the 'Ok Google' experience by toggling the chrome://flags/#enable-hotword-hardware flag.

And as for the story, it is coming together a bit: the latest trailer for the upcoming RPG just came out of the Jump Festa 2015 Japanese convention, and it does fill in a few more gaps. And no, there's still no word on when this game will ship.

"We receive reports of several cases of laser interference every month and every one of them is potentially dangerous", Kaakinen says. Last year, 60 cases of laser pointer interference were reported in Finland, and the figure for this year was at 58 in November. Despite the continuing interference, only one person has been caught misusing a laser pointer in this way in Finland.

In the face of threats from hackers, Sony said last... week said it was canceling theatrical release of the satirical movie about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, scheduled for December 25, and "has no further plans" to release on DVD or video-on-demand platforms. On Friday, President Obama publically called that decision a mistake and now both parties appear to be back-pedaling a little. "Remember, Sony only delayed this," David Boies, the company's lead attorney, said in an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press." "Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed.

Silk Road, as you know, was the online marketplace infamous for hosting anonymous drug and gun sales that was busted by the FBI back in 2013. A version 2.0 went up shortly after that, but it suffered the same fate as its predecessor this November. Based on evidence gathered during the crackdown, Shrem agreed to partner with Robert M. Faiella to trade over $1 million in cash from buyers. Faiella was the one with direct contact to buyers, hiding behind the name BTCKing to post ads promoting his dollar-to-Bitcoin business on the marketplace.

An anonymous reader writes The United States has declined an offer by North Korea for a joint investigation into the hacking of Sony Pictures and asked China to help block cyber attacks. "We have... discussed this issue with the Chinese to share information, express our concerns about this attack, and to ask for their cooperation," a senior administration official said. "In our cybersecurity discussions, both China and the United States have expressed the view that conducting destructive attacks in cyberspace is outside the norms of appropriate cyber behavior." China has so far seemed less than sympathetic: "Any civilized world will oppose hacker attacks or terror threats. But a movie like The Interview, which makes fun of the leader of an enemy of the U.S., is nothing to be proud of for...

McCain Calls Sony Hack An 'Act Of War'

The Huffington Post - 21 Dec 2014 18:16
McCain Calls Sony Hack An 'ActWASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) are at odds over whether the cyberattack on Sony Pictures, which the FBI has blamed on North Korea, should be considered an "act of... war." "I don't think it was an act of war," Obama told CNN Sunday. "I think it was an act of cybervandalism that was very costly, very expensive. We take it very seriously. We will respond proportionally." But McCain, in a Sunday appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," advanced a different argument. "The president does not understand that this is a manifestation of a new form of warfare," said McCain. "When you destroy economies, when you are able to impose censorship on the world and especially the United States of America, it's more than vandalism. It's a new form of warfare that we're...

First, start with a recipe -- one of your own, or you can choose from an online database put together by the Foodini makers and in the future, other Foodini owners.

The message reads: By GOPThe result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes.We congratulate you success.FBI is the BEST in the world.

Google+ Will Make Your Videos Look Better

Slashdot - 21 Dec 2014 15:25
ErnieKey writes: A new Google+ feature for uploaded videos has been released that automatically enhances lighting, color, and stability. Soon, it'll also enhance speech in videos. "As more and more... people now also take videos with their smartphones, it makes sense for Google to bring some of the technologies it has developed for photos (and YouTube) to these private videos, as well. Google has long offered a similar feature for YouTube users, so there is likely some overlap between the two systems here. While YouTube offers the option to 'auto-fix' videos, though, it doesn't automatically prompt its users to do this for them. YouTube also offers a number of manual tools for changing contrast, saturation and color temperature that Google+ doesn’t currently offer."

Today the Sun Stands Still

Bad Astronomy - 21 Dec 2014 14:00
Today is the real reason for the season: It's the winter solstice! If you're a purist, then raise your glass at 23:03 UTC (18:03 Eastern US time), because that's the moment the solstice occurs. There... are a lot of ways to look at this, but they all boil down to the Earth's axis being tilted with respect to its orbit. You've seen this with classroom globes; they're tipped by about 23.5°. As it orbits the Sun, the north pole of the Earth's axis is always pointed pretty close to Polaris in the sky, which means that sometimes the axis is tipped toward the Sun, sometimes away. When it's tipped as far from the Sun as it can be, that's the moment of the winter solstice. Illustration by Tfr000 on wikipedia, Creative Commons License. In this animation, the winter solstice occurs when the Earth is...

NASA 'Emails' a Socket Wrench To the ISS

Slashdot - 21 Dec 2014 09:16

The ratcheting socket wrench was... the first "uplink tool" printed in space, according to Grant Lowery, marketing and communications manager for Made In Space, which built the printer in partnership with NASA. The tool was designed on the ground, emailed to the space station and then manufactured where it took four hours to print out the finished product. The space agency hopes to one day use the technology to make parts for broken equipment in space and long-term missions would benefit greatly from onboard manufacturing capabilities.
