Reports are flooding in that eBay is down, estimated to be the twelfth major outage eBay has experienced this year. The ...
In what is becoming an all too familiar pattern, eBay is once again down. After massive password leaks recently, unexpected site crashes, and whatever this latest thing is...you have to think thousands of low bidders are winning auctions right now and thousands of sellers are kinda getting screwed.
Electric vehicles don't have to be stratospherically priced products from Silicon Valley, or boring range-limited economy-focused cars, either. No, some of the most fun, innovative, and affordable ways to experience electric propulsion come in far smaller
It's 2035. As you head out for work, you're sure to grab your BSH - Brain Security Hat - before heading off to work. The hat has become part of the cultural image of anyone who works in a field with sensitive, proprietary information; as it protects your brain against brain hackers. Does that sound like the…
You can tell what some people are thinking without jumping into the future.
Not exactly — though it’s easy to see why a well-resourced company would want to.
Why? Because, quite frankly, there is nothing else quite like YouTube. Sure, there are some competitors in the video space that are open platforms with video embed functionality like Dailymotion and Vimeo. But neither have the competitive scale.
But as we’ve learned repeatedly over the past year, YouTube is not exactly the best for building a profitable business if you rely solely on it for revenue. And where there’s weakness, there’s opportunity.
And there’s a handful of companies gunning to take a bite out of YouTube’s business.
Suppose you’re a planetary scientist. You operate an unmanned spacecraft, surveying a distant moon in our solar system. Years of funding, engineering work, and long-distance space travel have all come together, and at last this machine—to which you have devoted so much of your life—is in place. And it’s just made an incredible discovery.
Maybe it’s a new kind of crater. Or an odd, unexpected mineral. Or the holy grail: liquid water.
It’s thrilling news—years of your career, vindicated! Now you have to wait. And lobby. And hope for the funding to come through. And wait for the next craft to get there...
If you're familiar with Linux Ubuntu, you may know that they had a free file upload and storage service called Ubuntu One. I recently got this email about the closure of this service. If anyone has used it, remember to retrieve your files.
As previously announced, the file services for Ubuntu One have been discontinued. Your data is available for download until the end of July - if you haven't taken action already, you need to do so now in order to ensure you have a copy of all your data.
In order to make it easy for you to retrieve all of your content, we have released a new feature that lets you download all your content at once. Our website (https://one.ubuntu.com/) has been updated with instructions on how to conveniently download all your files.
In addition, you still can use Mover.io's offer to transfer your data to another cloud provider for free. And the Ubuntu One web interface is available for you to download individual files.
The previously announced option of downloading your files as a zip file is producing unreliable results for a small number of users and therefore we have removed that option. If you already retrieved your files as a zip file, we encourage you to check for the validity of the zip file contents. If there are problems with that file, please use one of the options above to retrieve a complete copy of your data.
Remember that you will have until 31st July 2014 to collect all of your content. After that date, all remaining content will be deleted.
We know you have come to rely on Ubuntu One, and we apologise for the inconvenience this closure may cause. We've always been inspired by the support, feedback and enthusiasm of our users and want to thank you for the support you've shown for Ubuntu One.
