My right honourable friend is right. He will see various proposals on procurement which I hope will have his support. One I emphasise is opening up Government procurement to smaller and medium sized enterprises who too often find that the bureaucracy associated with procurement regimes in the part has literally kept them off the list.

There was no specific suggestion of malicious intent (or of benevolence, either). Indeed, the era of this dictionary saw some good hacks: using a room-sized computer to play music, for instance; or, some would say, writing the dictionary itself. Wardialling with a PDP-1, those were the days! The Tech , MIT's newspaper, Nov. 20, 1963. The word appears incidentally around that time in issues of The Tech , MIT's newspaper, but we have to wait for November 1963 to see it break into the mainstream with a story of a group of students disrupting MIT's phone system through wardialling with a PDP-1 (PDF link). Straight away we see the start of the association with computer crime, though there is an air of Boys will be boys, in the official reaction any approval is absent. (If by any chance any of that MIT class of '63 whose nefarious activities are documented happens to be a Hackaday reader, we urge you to write your memoir of the escapades.

Source I personally went through and searched for things about E.T.s and found a document titledMy First Contact with Friends from Space ‘. It is a single-paged document, number 7 of 18 but there are no others in this collection. Upon further research I found that it was possibly referring to a book originally written in German. When I searched for the German version I found a link that I translated into English and to my surprise it contained a moderate-sized amount of information of a person getting information about ETs, high-technology and other related topics. Here is a link to the PDF (in German) . One of the most important pieces of information to be released this week was the coverage of PizzaGate on CBS News with reporter Ben Swann . He took a rational, responsible and factual approach to this topic and right out of the gate various media websites attacked him .

Both companies – or in Google’s case, its parent group, Alphabet – are therefore expected to announce booming revenues in their fourth-quarter results over the next fortnight, with Alphabet going first on Thursday and Amazon the following week. But analysts are already looking beyond the simple question of how many cardboard boxes Amazon filled and how many searches Google answered. They’re wondering which company will win the battle to control your home . That battle is being fought by two carafe-sized cylinders from the respective companies. One is Amazon’s Echo , with its voice-operatedpersonal assistant”, Alexa; the other is Google Home , which responds to the phraseOK Google”.

“When it’s used in the right way, it’s a very powerful tool to drive mobile engagement and store traffic,” said Richard Corps, managing director. The company’s latest product is “AR Window,” which superimposes life-sized augmented-reality characters into store environments via big screen displays in store windows. A recent project for video game retailer, Game, had an approximately 2-meter-tall Master Chief character from the popularHalogame series posing in store windows. “It looks like those characters are actually inside the store ... it stops people outside the store because they’re amazed to see these characters ... and then it drives them inside the store because they want to have their photograph taken with these characters,” Corps said. Footfall traffic increased by 18 percent, he added, and sales by 12 percent as a result of the campaign.
