Ex-Microsofties Unveil Paper, An iPad App For Ideating And Sharing

I mean a lot. Layers, Brushes, iDraw, SketchBook Pro, SketchPad HD, SketchyPad, Draft, and Penultimate, to name a few. If you build in the concept of ideating, the list only grows longer, with apps like Evernote, MindNode, Adobe Ideas … well, I think we all get the point. It’s a saturated market. But a new app called Paper, by a promising new company named FiftyThree, is jumping right in.

“There are many note taking applications which are useful, but boring,” FiftyThree co-founder Georg Petschnigg tells Co.Design.

Cybercrime.gov. The Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS) is responsible for implementing the Department's national strategies in combating computer and intellectual property crimes worldwide.

CCIPS prevents, investigates, and prosecutes computer crimes by working with other government agencies, the private sector, academic institutions, and foreign counterparts. Section attorneys work to improve the domestic and international infrastructure-legal, technological, and operational-to pursue network criminals most effectively. The Section's enforcement responsibilities against intellectual property crimes are similarly multi-faceted. Intellectual Property (IP) has become one of the principal U.S. economic engines, and the nation is a target of choice for thieves of material protected by copyright, trademark, or trade-secret designation.

Researchers from North Carolina State University have created a computer program that allows a car to stay in its lane without human control, opening the door to the development of new automobile safety features and military applications that could save lives.

Computer program allows car to stay in its lane without human control

"We develop computer vision programs, which allow a computer to understand what a video camera is looking at -- whether it is a stop sign or a pedestrian. Cellular Counter Brings Computer Programming to Life. In an essential step toward programming cells as precisely as computers, synthetic biologists have finally learned to count.

Cellular Counter Brings Computer Programming to Life

By linking a series of protein switches, researchers made prototype cell-level counters that could eventually be used to coordinate complex sets of genetic instructions running on biomolecular machines, from disease-hunting cells to intracellular computing networks. In the electronic world, basic counting functions underlie even the most powerful supercomputers. “What we’ve done is to impose some of the controls we’ve imposed in electrical engineering onto the biological cell,” said synthetic biologist Timothy Lu at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “We hope to be able to control the cell more reliably, and have it perform more defined functions.

This forms the fundamental basis for building more complicated circuits.” Counters will allow synthetic biologists “to start thinking about programming biology in time and space.

The use of electronic products has grown substantially over the past two decades, changing the way and the speed in which we communicate and how we get information and entertainment.

Common Wastes & Materials

According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household.1 Donating used electronics for reuse extends the lives of valuable products. Recycling electronics prevents valuable materials from going into the waste stream. Consumers now have many options to recycle or donate for reuse their used electronics. Many computer, TV, and cell phone manufacturers, as well as electronics retailers offer some kind of take back program or sponsor recycling events. And several other states are considering passing similar laws. Reference to specific websites or organizations above is for informational purposes only and is not a reflection of EPA endorsement.
