The AP archive on YouTube is cool. Relevant or not will depend on how actionable they will make the metadata.

They spin tales about its successes and failures, but they don’t care about its complexity.

Wow. It only gets more direct after that in the song "Governor".

Why is the new Photos ignore "no download" setting, at least when a photo is shared via a link?

+Zachary Fair, I will report, thank you for pointing that out. What concerns me is that Google made it look like a smooth transition while did not make clear which other safety settings the new Photos system disregards. Being quiet about dropping access guards violates http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principle_of_least_astonishment and and damages trust in the best scenario.

See, +The White House, all those fancy Microsoft wireless keyboards you got are vulnerable, thanks to the government's blind eye to the proper consumer information technology security.
KEYSWEEPER // SIGINT // SAMY.PL // REL TO ALL // APPLIED HACKING. KeySweeper. KeySweeper is a stealthy Arduino-based device, camouflaged as a functioning USB wall charger, that wirelessly and passively sniffs, decrypts, logs and reports back (over GSM) all keystrokes from any Microsoft wireless ...

A nice peek into the high-end art market. It is very fascinating to see that something, which value can not (yet) be estimated algorithmically, has such high margins - and how that may attract investors. It seems to be a matter of time when neural networks will be trained on price estimates for the art sold and account for time, location, artist history, and such. I bet that artists will likely get a better initial price, while subsequent trades will carry less margin.

One side of the market not covered in the episode are investors which commission original work to create value from scratch - I think that is part of what Graham Foundation does ( http://www.grahamfoundation.org/ ).

On a less serious note, how come +Ted Forbes did not mention "Thomas Crown Affair" http://imdb.com/title/tt0155267 is beyond me :D

Hm.. The informant/naive victim pattern is loosely similar to mid-30s GUGB practices. Nowhere close in scale, but very close in spirit.

Let's not single Facebook out. Probably as relevant here...
Have you ever been walking in a dark alley and seen something that you thought was a crouching person, but it turned out to be a garbage…

С моим плохим слухом акустика была адекватная. Про проблемы в San Jose много говорили и волновались перед концертом. Мне очень понравилось, после концерта купил МП3 альбомы "Радио Африка", "Zoom Zoom Zoom", "День серебра", и "Кунсткамера" :)

Very cooperative and accommodating shop for any custom need or repair we could throw at them. Punctual and high-quality. Often they offer some very interesting estate jewelry.

First visited the place in 2012 - liked it at that time. Recently came in December 2013 and it was totally bad experience. Escargots were tasteless. Service was slow and inattentive - wine service, delivery, and check out. We were not asked once if we liked it of if things were OK. Steak tartar felt like from a recently defrosted meat - not fresh at all. Too bad.

beef tenderloin salad advertised with medium-rare meat. Comes out as medium at best, most pieces are medium-well. Meat it's very "fibery". Service is OK, on a somewhat slower side. BTW, this is their terminal B location experience.

We had high expectations of Lamfé from our visit four years ago. At that time their crepes bodin noir were our best meal in Paris. Turns out Lamfé has a new chef since then. A little worried, we asked what is the new chef's specialty. Steak tartar. OK, we'll bite. It was incredible. Light and fresh, exquisitely fragrant. It is served under beef carpaccio and poached egg, big portion - ours was good for two. My wife still maintains this Xmas 2012 steak tartar was the best in her life.

As your left and right neighbours are about twice closer than a companion across the table, forget about any meaningful conversation. Well, forget about it regardless as the noise is ridiculously high anyway. Drunk people from the bar were hitting my head 4-5 times, while passing waiters took care of kicking the chair. The food is below average, definitely not worth the money. Show, no go, much like Publican. But - if you are in for salty stuff, you are going to like that lasting impression. Service fails mostly because they can not hear what patrons are saying. Asked for a cider bottle, got a glass, wrong dish. Could not flag the waiter down for more than ten minutes to pay and get outta there. But - if you like screaming "hip" scene - may be your place.

Fresh juices, excellent meats. Portions are on a larger side. Friendly waiters. We had Kibbee Nahyee, Lamb Chops, Meat Pies, and pot of Arabic Coffee (on the photo), some salads. Second time stopped for juices and salads- everything was superb.
