Google infringes old Lycos patents, must pay $30 million | Ars Technica

Google infringes old Lycos patents, must pay $30 million | Ars Technica: "That obviously isn't going to happen. In the middle of trial, US District Judge Raymond Jackson issued a ruling that foreclosed the most heated of those billion-dollar dreams, putting a strict cap on Vringo's ultimate payday. He limited the company to receiving damages only from the day it had filed the lawsuit in 2011. Originally, Vringo had wanted damages back to 2005. The stock price hit a nadir of $1.91 per share on the afternoon of October 31, shortly after Jackson's ruling. (It rebounded to around $4 per share after the jury deliberations dragged on to a third day.)"

Startup company - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "A company may cease to be a startup as it passes various milestones, such as becoming profitable, or becoming publicly traded in an IPO, or ceasing to exist as an independent entity via a merger or acquisition. Companies may also fail and cease to operate altogether.

The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses Audio Book | Eric Ries | Download The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses: "The Lean Startup approach fosters companies that are both more capital efficient and that leverage human creativity more effectively. Inspired by lessons from lean manufacturing, it relies on “validated learning”, rapid scientific experimentation, as well as a number of counter-intuitive practices that shorten product-development cycles, measure actual progress without resorting to vanity metrics, and learn what customers really want. It enables a company to shift directions with agility, altering plans inch by inch, minute by minute.
Rather than wasting time creating elaborate business plans, The Lean Startup offers entrepreneurs - in companies of all sizes - a way to test their vision continuously, to adapt and adjust before it’s too late. Ries provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful startups in a age when companies need to innovate more than ever.

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 3 Chapter 5

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 3 Chapter 5: "The Supreme Living Being in His feature as the transcendental puruṣa incarnation, who is the Lord's plenary expansion, impregnates the material nature of three modes, and thus by the influence of eternal time the living entities appear.

SB 3.5.27: Thereafter, influenced by the interactions of eternal time, the supreme sum total of matter called the mahat-tattva became manifested, and in this mahat-tattva the unalloyed goodness, the Supreme Lord, sowed the seeds of universal manifestation out of His own body.

SB 3.5.28: Thereafter the mahat-tattva differentiated itself into many different forms as the reservoir of the would-be entities. The mahat-tattva is chiefly in the mode of ignorance, and it generates the false ego. It is a plenary expansion of the Personality of Godhead, with full consciousness of creative principles and time for fructification."

Sanders Say:

There is an expression which I have learned by reading the Bhagavad Gita As It Is by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, many years ago (which 1st came  into my hands at Port Authority, NYC when I was around 16 years old on my way to a reunion of an American Youth Hostels bicycle trip to Canada lead by Floyd (that was his first name... no not Pink Floyd...sheesh)..

The expression is chewing what has already been chewed. The premise of reincarnation is elucidated and expounded upon in this book. The past, present and future as explained as karmic reactions explains how so much of what goes in today's world is so mundane, mainly because we have been there and done that many times before.

Chewing what has already been chewed. 

Things which only provide fast temporary relief are of this nature because they are derived from the "sum total of matter called the mahat-tattva" elsewhere in The Bhagavad Gita, these material hankerings we all have is explained as Krsna's (just figure on using G-d to avoid any "your religion-my religion type of argumentation) inferior energy which the swami often refers to using the sanskrit term, Krnsa's powerful Yoga-Maya, or just Maya for short.

One of my favorite verses I recall from the Swami's book is an example used explaining how Krnsa may enter this world (obviously if he so chooses- yet this is disputed by some who insist that G-d is and must be incorporeal) and not become entrapped by this inferior "illusory" energy. The analogy used is perfect!

Om-Tat-Sat:

The spider weaves a web to entangle its potential sources of food, yet the spider itself does not become entangled in its own web. 

In my own humble opinion, one of the principles stated by Maimonides in his 13 principles; that G-d is incorporeal and does not have a body (of any sort, in the past present or future) is one of these fundamental 13 principles of faith which is included in the daily prayer. The prayer says that anyone who does not believe these principle's is an apikoros (non believer).

  
Therefore, I (simply because I have a belief) that if G-d wanted to take on any sort of form... well he most certainly can) by this definition become labeled as apikoros (and I most certainly am a complete believer in G-d)  It is my "personal belief" that this particular principle is included in the list of 13 to teach us something far more subtle. However if one finds themselves to actually be born into a religion which simply does not allow sincere inquiry and questioning on some of the more esoteric and complex beliefs then it is certainly understandable for one to look outside of such a restrictive environment. 

The particulars regarding myself (like so many other things in my life) are of course not the usual. That is, I was not given a specific "tradition" of learning as part of my early childhood (or even the usual pre- bar mitzvah track) yet I was always (yes always) a very spiritual inquisitive person. 

According to one of the 13 principle's of Maimonides, G-d is incorporeal. According to the Bhagavad Gita... the explanation I am expounding upon here, is G-d is omnipotent (He can do anything) and omnipresent (he can be anywhere... at the same time... ?) ...

Rather than take on the Rabbis and lose my share in the world to come I would rather simply state that it only makes sense that if G-d wanted to "be corporal" that he could be corporeal. Yet now taking on this particular argument I do see the conundrum. 

  How could "one" be corporeal and remain omni-pressent?

I would rather ask that question remain part of a very fine religion, then to be drummed out the religion for thinking about something too deeply. 

There is a bigger issue here, and that should be readily obvious to those who know my story. That being why I am delving into all this Bhagavad Gita stuff, instead of sticking with the strictly Jewish sources? 

The answer to that question is huge, and would take me quite a bit of time and words to explain. The simple "readers digest" answer however is this:

I have always been interested in the very deep, and highly esoteric mysteries of creation. I have never danced around questions or been satisfied with simple answers or highly dogmatic concepts. Does that mean that I am unfit for any religion, not in my opinion, far from it. I believe that I am one of these people who needs the longer and more complex explanation. Often things as important as religion are treated on a very simplistic level. Such a level, has never been nor never will be the starting point for me. 

Time is short and there is little time to dance around valid questions.

O foremost among the great thinkers [munis] [Śaunaka], seeing the glaring brahmāstra proceeding towards them, the Pāṇḍavas took up their five respective weapons.

PURPORT"


PURPORT
The brahmāstras are finer than the nuclear weapons. Aśvatthāmā discharged the brahmāstra simply to kill the Pāṇḍavas, namely the five brothers headed by Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira and their only grandson, who was lying within the womb of Uttarā. Therefore the brahmāstra, more effective and finer than the atomic weapons, was not as blind as the atomic bombs. When the atomic bombs are discharged they do not discriminate between the target and others. Mainly the atomic bombs do harm to the innocent because there is no control. The brahmāstra is not like that. It marks out the target and proceeds accordingly without harming the innocent.

O foremost among the great thinkers [munis] [Śaunaka], seeing the glaring brahmāstra proceeding towards them, the Pāṇḍavas took up their five respective weapons.

PURPORT

The brahmāstras are finer than the nuclear weapons. Aśvatthāmā discharged the brahmāstra simply to kill the Pāṇḍavas, namely the five brothers headed by Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira and their only grandson, who was lying within the womb of Uttarā. Therefore the brahmāstra, more effective and finer than the atomic weapons, was not as blind as the atomic bombs. When the atomic bombs are discharged they do not discriminate between the target and others. Mainly the atomic bombs do harm to the innocent because there is no control. The brahmāstra is not like that. It marks out the target and proceeds accordingly without harming the innocent."

Atomic Weapons- are lousy and exceedingly gross because they do not discriminate between guilty or innocent friend or foe, however the 'karmic weapons" of the supreme lord are infallible, and specific and very fine and never miss creating the proper "cause-effect" reaction designed to cure our transgressions.

An original purport culled from the translation I randomly landed on based on my 'vedic research" on the Cayo-munio verse I learned over twenty years ago yet have never "completely forgotten". When one truly learns "eternal wisdom" it does not fade like so many other mundane topics/

BHAGAVAD GITA OF ORDER: CHAPTER 5

BHAGAVAD GITA OF ORDER: CHAPTER 5: "He who dedicates all his works to the spiritual forsaking of his attachments is never affected by sin like a lotusleaf is in the water. (11) With their body, mind and intelligence purified yogis even with their senses are acting in giving up the attachments for the sake of the soul. (12) United in giving up the fruits they unflinching attain perfect peace while the ones unconnected in the desire to enjoy the results are entrapped in attachment."

Bhagavad-gita As It Is Chapter 14

Bhagavad-gita As It Is Chapter 14: "BG 14.5: Material nature consists of three modes — goodness, passion and ignorance. When the eternal living entity comes in contact with nature, O mighty-armed Arjuna, he becomes conditioned by these modes.

BG 14.6: O sinless one, the mode of goodness, being purer than the others, is illuminating, and it frees one from all sinful reactions. Those situated in that mode become conditioned by a sense of happiness and knowledge.

BG 14.7: The mode of passion is born of unlimited desires and longings, O son of Kuntī, and because of this the embodied living entity is bound to material fruitive actions."

The ultimate dilema of "the conditioned soul"- how to live in the world of action and "work to obtain the fruits which are required for mere existence (even though almost everyone desires so much more in their "pursuit of happiness" and not to become trapped in an insatiable downward spiral for the pursuit of temporary pleasure which have no bounds.

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 3 Chapter 5

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 3 Chapter 5: "SB 3.5.2: Vidura said: O great sage, everyone in this world engages in fruitive activities to attain happiness, but one finds neither satiation nor the mitigation of distress. On the contrary, one is only aggravated by such activities. Please, therefore, give us directions on how one should live for real happiness.

SB 3.5.3: O my lord, great philanthropic souls travel on the earth on behalf of the Supreme Personality of Godhead to show compassion to the fallen souls who are averse to the sense of subordination to the Lord.

SB 3.5.4: Therefore, O great sage, please give me instruction on the transcendental devotional service of the Lord, so that He who is situated in the heart of everyone can be pleased to impart, from within, knowledge of the Absolute Truth in terms of the ancient Vedic principles delivered only to those who are purified by the process of devotional service."

SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM (Bhagavata Purana); the story of Krishna

SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM (Bhagavata Purana); the story of Krishna: "The Fortunate One is thus the Lord who is known in different forms or incarnations, but also the devotees are part of His reality and are also called bhâgavata when they are of  pure devotion. Thus there is the Lord in His many appearances, the devotee with as many faces and the book. They are all called Fortunate. To be fortunate means to be of the opulence, or to carry, or live by, the fullness of God's riches, beauty, fame, power, knowledge and detachment."

Webmasters note:

Unfortunately for those who truly understand the meaning of detachment (regardless of their ancestral religion) who have delved into books like the Bhagavad Gita, or other more detailed Vedic sources (such as the one quoted) may eventually come to realize that obtaining the fruits of ones labor (work=money) and remaining detached is quite a narrow path to walk.

Counselling is an opportunity to create a space in your week where you can stop, reflect on your life's choices and connect to your true self.

Assemblyman Gary Schaer Continues the Fight for New Jersey’s Neediest: "One legislator who has been critical of the Administration’s cuts in social services is Assemblyman Gary Schaer (D-36, Bergen/Passaic). Christe’s cuts, especially in Medicaid funding, have elicited public responses by Assemblyman Schaer in recent weeks. The Assemblyman has stated that the Governor’s budget planning has caused him to be “very troubled by this proposal …..It's not government's role to be charity, but it is government's role to provide opportunity.

SCHUMER URGES PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION TO RAISE LIMIT ON SOLAR ENERGY CREDIT SYSTEM FOR HOMES AND BUSINESSES

SCHUMER URGES PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION TO RAISE LIMIT ON SOLAR ENERGY CREDIT SYSTEM FOR HOMES AND BUSINESSES: "Last week, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported that Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation (CHG&E), a utility provider in the Hudson Valley, reached their total allowable limit set by the Public Service Commission for the amount of solar energy that can be generated by homeowners and businesses and pumped back into the grid for credits. Therefore, CHG&E recently suspended the net metering benefit for all of its future solar customers, a major disincentive for new businesses and homeowners to install solar panels in the Hudson Valley. As a result of pressure from Schumer and the local solar industry, CHG&E announced today that they would begin processing net metering applications temporarily until the PSC issues its ruling. However, Schumer said that the PSC needs to make a permanent fix to the net metering limits to ensure consumer confidence that solar panels, which can be time-consuming to install and connect to the grid, will not be cut off from net-metering benefits."

Learn how solar energy works and save money also- Hudson Solar: "What is Net Metering?

Solar electric generation and purchases from the electric utility are “netted out” automatically. This can slow down the utility’s meter or even spin it backwards if the solar system is producing more electricity than is being consumed. Your excess electricity is then sold back to the utility at the retail rate, per agreement with the utility company.

Most State utilities will permit most customers with fewer than 25 kilowatts of PV to net meter."

Will The Occupy Wall Street Movement Continue?

Will The Occupy Wall Street Movement Continue?: "While many find it difficult to unequivocally state that this group (movement) is wrong, the surprising thing I have found that many people simply say, this group is not entirely wrong.

What this means is that the rank and file people of the US have woken up and realized that government process is substantially run by the economic interest that stand to gain or lose the most by what the government does.

The thing that has precipitated this is when the government did the unthinkable which was to bail out businesses, banks, and other large corporate concerns. The government has essentially become a vassal of big business. In other words the US government is sort of like a publicly held "not for profit corporation" which is run by a board of directors (it share holders) the one's with the most money hold the largest shares and effectively buy their influence."

But when the gas comes from fracturing bedrock with about five million gallons of toxic water per well, the word “clean” takes on a disturbingly Orwellian tone. Don’t be fooled. Fracking for shale gas is in truth dirty energy. It inevitably leaks toxic chemicals into the air and water.

Mitt Romney: Tisha B'Av in Jerusalem | The Weekly Standard: "Romney and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the appropriateness of a Romney visit to Israel on this date. But Netanyahu, THE WEEKLY STANDARD has confirmed from top aides in Jerusalem and Boston, encouraged Romney to be in Jerusalem on this solemn day, one that recalls the tragedies of Jewish history and calls to mind current threats to the Jewish people.

Indeed, THE WEEKLY STANDARD can report that Prime Minister and Mrs. Netanyahu have invited the Romneys to join them for the traditional meal breaking the fast following sundown after Tisha B’Av. "

Editor/Publisher's Opinion:

It's clever polotics, with minimal possibilities for backfiring. It's clear that Obama has said and done much to simply disenfranchise Jews who strongly support Israel. I suppose in the back of everyone's mind is:

Is Obama capable of doing anything profound in his apparent favoritism towards the "non-Zionistic" side of things in general? Will his absolute allegiance to the principles of a strong US military as the primary defense against the threat implicit in the planned Iran implementation of a nuclear weapons program.

If Obama does not initiate effective actions including a potential preemptive military action to regain the dominance the US  once had with regards to its unique position worldwide in, and its stance longstanding stance against the proliferation of nuclear weapons, then Obama would have missed his opportunity to potentially take his place amongst the great leaders of the United States.

The dramatic effect of non-action, could potentially only become significant if his administration becomes the reason for allowing a new, wealthy and technological threat to world peace to develop in this very volatile part of the world.

 Logic dictates that action, including dramatic, effective and strategic strikes against the uprising of a significant threat to World Peace, in the middle east must be taken under the watch of our current President's leadership.

The lack of decisive action in the middle east will effectively seal the failure of  Obama's re-election. The people of the United States simply do not want another super-power, to develop when the US has the power and the strategic military connections, to stop if.

If Obama is willing to gamble that the usual ever present anti-semitic feelings, along with  perceived world-wide anti Israel sentiment, will excuse his in-adequate handling of the clear and present danger associated with a nuclear Iran, he will simply continue in his rhetoric.  The absence of establishing of effective plan to counteract, or failure to develop enough economic or political pressure on Iran to cease and desist from its nuclear plans, will become the legacy of what his administration will be known for.

The simply attempt to placate pubic opinion with domestic and job related issues, will not carry the voters, in the final tally. The first duty of the President of the United States is to protect the nation form its enemies.



If Obama fails in this respect primarily due to his perceived bias towards factions which seek and hope to destroy Israel, (based on his un-apologetic muslim beliefs)  Obama will be directly responsible for a very dark legacy, in allowing instability to develop unchecked in the middle east in the form a nuclear capable Iran.

The bulk of that cloud-related spending is for what Gartner terms “business process as a service,” followed by Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Overall, Gartner predicts overall spending on IT will increase from $3.5 trillion in 2011 to $3.7 trillion in 2013."

Glossary of Terms Used in Payment Processing | Shift4

Glossary of Terms Used in Payment Processing | Shift4: "Discount Rate - This is the fee paid by a Merchant to the Merchant Bank to handle the deposit of credit card funds into their bank. It is usually quoted as a percentage to hundreds (or basis point).

Effective Rate - The calculated bundled rate to the Merchant of a transaction after combining the Discount Rate, assessments and other per item transaction fee.

Transaction Fee and Rate Information for Accepting Credit Cards | Shift4: " Merchants are continuously trying to figure out and understand the various fees that they get charged for accepting credit card transactions. The industry has created a myriad of different fees that can be imposed upon a Merchant and these fees are hidden behind a variety of different rules and regulations created by the Card Associations.

The only fee most Merchants are familiar with is their quoted Discount Rate. The Discount Rate is a percentage of each dollar processed, and possibly an additional flat per transaction fee that the Merchant Services Provider charges the Merchant for processing a transaction. From that Discount Rate, the Merchant Services Provider, Processor, Issuing Bank and Card Associations all take portions for their services."

Why I left Google. What happened to my book. What I work on at Facebook. » THINK OUTSIDE IN: "Google is an engineering company, and as a researcher or designer, it’s very difficult to have your voice heard at a strategic level. Ultimately I felt that although my research formed a cornerstone of the Google social strategy, and I had correctly predicted how other products in the market would play out, I wasn’t being listened to when it came to executing that strategy. My peers listened intently, but persuading the leadership was a losing battle. Google values technology, not social science. I also moved because the culture had changed dramatically in the few years I was at Google. It became much more bureaucratic and political."

Why I left Google. What happened to my book. What I work on at Facebook. » THINK OUTSIDE IN: " Why I left Google
- What happened to my book ‘Social Circles’
- What I’m working on at Facebook
I never intended to write publicly about why I left Google, but it seems necessary to give people some facts that they can refer to, and not have people speculating and making stuff up.

Before I get into specifics, I want to say that I still hold tremendous respect for Google. I worked there for four years, loved the company, and busted a gut to help them ship great products. I learned an immense amount from a lot of very smart people."

Work At Home Special Report!

Work At Home Special Report!: ""I basically make $6,000-$8,000 a month online."
-Kelly Richards

I asked her about how she discovered her tight lip secret. "Honestly, it is easier than you would think, all I did was fill out a simple form to get front line access to the Home Profit System. I got the instructions kit and within a month I was making over $4,000 a month. The instructions are pretty simple, I am not a computer whiz, but I can use the internet. I fill forms and surf sites, I don't even have to sell anything and nobody has to buy anything. It's as easy as being on facebook.""

Samsung Galaxy S III Review - Watch CNET's Video Review

Samsung Galaxy S III Review - Watch CNET's Video Review: "Samsung's new flagship phone is one of the first handsets to use Corning's Gorilla Glass 2, a thinner, lighter, more responsive cover glass material that the two companies also say lets colors shine brighter. I definitely noticed the screen's sensitivity; at times I barely had to brush the display for a response. Colors looked bright and vibrant with the phone in a dark setting, but slide to full brightness and the screen sometimes seemed dark, especially when compared with other phones at full throttle.

Like typical AMOLED displays, the GS3 overdoes it on the greens,"

Samsung Galaxy S3: Supply Shortage Costs Samsung 2 Million in Sales - Mobile & Apps

Samsung Galaxy S3: Supply Shortage Costs Samsung 2 Million in Sales - Mobile & Apps: "they did not believe in their own products, but because they might have over-estimated the competition.

UPDATE 4-Judge halts sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab in U.S. | Reuters

UPDATE 4-Judge halts sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab in U.S. | Reuters: " A decisive injunction in one of the U.S. legal cases could strengthen Apple's hand in negotiating cross-licensing deals, where firms agree to let each other use their patented technologies.

Opponents of Apple say the iPhone and iPad maker is using patents too aggressively in its bid to stamp out competition.

"The relief being given to Apple here is extraordinary. Preliminary injunctions are rarely asked for and rarely granted," said Colleen Chien, a professor at Santa Clara Law in Silicon Valley.

"That this was a design patent and copying was alleged distinguish this case from plain vanilla utility patent cases. Cases involving these kinds of patents are based more on a counterfeiting theory than a competition theory, so I don't expect this case to have ramifications for all smartphone disputes, but rather those involving design patents and the kind of product resemblance we had here.""

Physical Or Virtual Keyboard? Maybe We Can Help You Decide | TalkAndroid.com: "I believe virtual keyboards continue get a bad rap.  They are often labeled as unreliable and inaccurate however, I’m going to chock that one up to a user error.  I personally find that typing on a virtual keyboard is much, much quicker than typing on a physical one.  Why you ask?  Though I can’t explain it with an exact science, I think most will agree it requires more force to push a physical button than the simple lite tap "
