Of Course, That Was Back When Almost All The Internet Retailers Were Basking In The Sunlight Of A Bull Market

The best-case scenario for an investigator is seizing a physical device—one lawyer told me that he advises his clients to immediately destroy their phones or laptops after being accused, especially because Pakistani courts privilege physical evidence and a lack of it could help undermine a case. But even if there were a device containing incriminating content, could you necessarily determine who had transmitted or downloaded the material?

Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson says he pre-ordered the Mark One about a year ago for $8,000, but was told last Friday in a phone call with a MarkForged salesman that the company refuses to sell him one, citing terms of service that disallow private citizens from using the machine to make firearms. So instead, Wilson is offering what he describes as a “bounty” to anyone who can get him MarkForged’s new carbon fiber printer.

Started by freelance media producer Pawel Janicki and media artist Jarek Kujda in 2001, the Gameboyzz Orchestra plays live music that can be simultaneously euphonious, grating and reminiscent of a Legend of Zelda implosion.

The reason for this is that during the startup period during February through August of 2009, we shared the same hosting company and to some extent used the same tracker cluster and IP-address space provided by DCP Networks, the same service provider as The Pirate Bay used. OpenBitTorrent was at the time a customer of DCP Networks and Fredrik Neij, one of their employees but also one of the founders of The Pirate Bay.

Arment explained that his “read later” app Instapaper Pro was an example of software that breaks free from metaphor. In reading mode, you can view articles that split up into easily readable “cards,” but as soon as text is selected, you can begin scrolling.
