So will it be tragedy, farce or tourism? Obama’s a tourist, so says the Davy Crockett of the American journalistic frontier and philosopher king of The New York Times (aka T Friedman, Esq), but he’s wrong. The winner of the Nobel Prize for Public Speech-making will be at least a super-tourist – with 10,000 armed Israeli and American tour guides in Jerusalem alone. Now that, Mr President, is the wall. No, not That Wall, we’re talking about the Ottoman palisade on each side of the city’s Damascus Gate.

Read Whole Comment + The list shows that the features we read the most are about technology directly affecting us personally. 6 out of 10 of the most heavily traffic'd stories deal with apps a personal user would use, not the tech industry as a whole, or one particular device. However, looking at devices, Google is the King. Not Microsoft which is in danger of becoming an also-ran. As long as Apple innovates, it has strength.

Featuring questions and answers that come entirely from users, Quora is competing for the title of one of the biggest knowledge bases on the Internet.

This semester, my students at the School of Information at UC-Berkeley researched the VC system from the perspective of company founders. We prepared a detailed survey; randomly selected 500 companies from a venture database; and set out to contact the founders. Thanks to Reid Hoffman, we were able to get premium access to LinkedIn—which was very helpful and provided a wealth of information.
Un virus s'attaquant aux téléphones mobiles utilisant le système d'exploitation Android de Google a été détecté en Chine . Baptisé Geinimi, il peut s' emparer de nombreuses données personnelles stockées sur le téléphone d'un utilisateur et les envoyer vers des serveurs. "Une fois que ce logiciel malveillant est installé sur un téléphone, il a la capacité d'obéir aux ordres d'un serveur, permettant à l'opérateur de ce serveur de contrôler le téléphone", précise Lookout Mobile Security, un éditeur d'antivirus spécialisé dans les mobiles. Selon l'éditeur, ce virus est extrêmement "sophistiqué" , bien plus que "les précédentes tentatives de logiciels malveillants visant Android" . La société, qui ne connaît pas les finalités de cette attaque, précise que seuls des utilisateurs téléchargeant des applications d'Android en Chine sont susceptibles d'être affectés. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
A man observes the scene of the bomb blast from within the Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt. Photograph: Ben Curtis/AP At least 21 people have been killed and more than 70 injured in Egypt in a suspected suicide bombing outside a church in Alexandria as worshippers left a new year service. It was initially thought a car bomb had caused the explosion just after midnight at the Coptic orthodox al-Qidiseen church. But the interior ministry suggested a foreign-backed suicide bomber may have been responsible. The blast did not originate in any of the cars that were destroyed, a ministry statement said.
BAGHDAD — When Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki introduced what he called a national partnership government two weeks ago, he included allies and adversaries, Arabs and Kurds, Shiite Muslims and Sunnis. One group, however, was woefully underrepresented. Only one woman was named to Maliki's 42-member cabinet, sparking an outcry in a country that once was a beacon for women's rights in the Arab world and adding to an ongoing struggle over the identity of the new Iraq.
Vice President Joe Biden’s use of profanity, a New York congressman’s admission of groping and a denial of witchcraft were among the top 10 political quotes of 2010. The healthcare reform debate is featured in several others, ranging from a Texas lawmaker’s outburst of “baby killer” to President Obama’s admission that he and his party took a “shellacking” in the midterm elections. Democrats were jubilant after they narrowly passed the healthcare bill in March, as evidenced by Biden’s comment to Obama that it was “a big f------ deal.” While Democrats won that legislative battle, Republicans won the message war on healthcare, capturing control of the House and reducing the Democrats’ majority in the Senate in the November elections.
