Tom Clancy: Power and Empire: A Jack Ryan Novel, Book 18 (Unabridged) - Marc Cameron

  • Description A newly belligerent Chinese govement leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in this continuation of the number one New York Times best-selling Tom Clancy series.

Pawns are being moved around a global chessboard: an attack on an oil platform in Africa, a terrorist strike on an American destroyer, and a storm-tossed American spy ship that may fall into Chinese hands. It seems that President Zhao is determined to limit Ryan's choices in the upcoming G20 negotiations. But there are hints that there's even more going on behind the sc, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Star Trek's Jeri Ryan reaaaaally wants a transporter - CNET

  • As part of our coverage of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, I talked with a dozen cast members from across the franchise about everything from Star Trek's inclusive message to how it feels to be a sex symbol to nerds. Jeri Ryan didn't want the role at first. The then up-and-comer was trying to kickstart her career after eaing a theater degree and winning the Miss Illinois beauty pageant (she later competed in Miss America, coming in fourth place). "I wasn't remotely interested in science fiction," Ryan said of her pre-Star Trek days. Sure, she'd watched some episodes of the original series. But she'd also heard the shows had a history of stymieing some actor's careers. Then Ryan read about her character, Seven of Nine, a human kidnapped as a young girl by a cybeetic race known as the Borg. She then spends decades participating in the atrocious "assimilation" of other species before she's snatched back by the Voyager crew.

  • 'The Simpsons' pokes fun at Donald Trump's canine hair and tiny hands - CNET

  • [embedded content] "The Simpsons" has never been shy about making fun of American politics. After all, several presidents have been Simpsons-fied on the long-running animated comedy series. Bill Clinton, famously, was always hitting on Marge. George Bush Sr. was a neighbor for a while.But as the 2016 race for the US presidency increasingly resembles a "Simpsons" episode, it was inevitable that the animated series take aim at both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.In a short video clip called "3 a.m." -- posted on YouTube on July 30 by Animation on Fox -- we see Homer and Marge grappling with who to support in the upcoming election, as they watch a commercial showing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The 3 a.m. reference is to an ad from the 2008 campaign when Clinton ran against Barack Obama. While Clinton gets a slight jab in the video, the main focus of the clip is Trump angrily tweeting in bed while taking a break from reading a book of Hitler's speeches. Plus we find out Trump hides his tiny hands in larger fake hands, gets a spray-on tan and has a small dog acting as his hair piece. Trump has yet to react to the clip on Twitter, his usual medium of choice.Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Wheelchair user avatars are coming to Microsoft's Xbox - CNET

  • Enlarge ImageMicrosoft will offer Xbox users the abilty to choose an avatar in a wheelchair. Mike Ybarra/Twitter/screenshot by Lance Whitney/CNET Microsoft is expanding the scope of its Xbox avatars by adding ones seated in wheelchairs.Xbox head Phil Spencer responded Sunday to a couple of tweeters who asked about the possibility of creating wheelchair user avatars. Spencer said the company had already looked at the idea and that it's not far off. Mike Ybarra, head of Windows and Xbox program management, gave everyone a peek Monday night, posting images of the new avatars -- one male and one female -- both sitting in wheelchairs.Microsoft's new avatars are part of an overall industry trend to create online characters that are more expansive and inclusive of the general population. Facebook recently added the ability to choose from among different skin tones for the emojis used on its Messenger chat app. There are now more emojis for women and for gender identity as well.The two new avatars are seated in wheelchairs that sport a flag with the familiar Xbox icon. The facial features are also more detailed and expressive than those seen in existing avatars. That suggests Microsoft's next lineup of avatars may look a bit more "human" than the present ones.Ybarra didn't reveal when the new avatars will debut. But Microsoft reportedly has big plans in store for the Xbox. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo next week, the software giant could unveil as many as four new Xbox One variations.Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • 3D printing produces human hair-like bristles - CNET

  • Enlarge Image Ou et al, MIT Media Lab Slowly but surely, researchers are stripping away the limitations of 3D printers. Until now, dense and finely-featured objects had been considered off-limits, simply because the computer-aided design (CAD) files required would be enormous and take hours to compute. But new software designed by researchers at MIT's Media Lab circumvents this problem.Called Cilllia, it uses sliders to allow the users to create surfaces covered in thousands of hairs with a resolution of 50 microns, about the width of a human hair. Unlike CAD, where each hair has to be drawn individually, this process takes just a few minutes."[Hair] comes with a challenge that is not on the hardware, but on the software side," said first author Jifei Ou, an MIT graduate student in media arts and sciences, in a statement.Cilllia uses sliders that allow the user to quickly change the parameters of the hair structure, with a real-time visual representation. The user can adjust height, thickness, profile and angle, as well as the quantity of hair on a structure. The software can even be used to create curved hairs in a spiral patte.The result is a program that can be easily used to create brush structures in various forms using stereolithography 3D printing. The team made paintbrushes, Velcro-like pads that stick to each other, hair-based actuation, and a furred toy bunny that lights up green when you stroke it correctly.It's the latest advancement in 3D printing, an industry that will be worth just over $20 billion by 2019, according to Canalys."The ability to fabricate customized hair-like structures not only expands the library of 3D-printable shapes, but also enables us to design alteative actuator and sensors," the team's paper, presented at the Association for Computing Machinery's CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in May, concluded.

  • Google chairman: We're not going to touch Trump vs. Clinton - CNET

  • Eric Schmidt: Google will keep supporting gay rights. FAYEZ NURELDINE/AFP/Getty Images No matter which candidate gets your vote in the upcoming presidential election, the world's most valuable tech company will not be standing behind you.Google will not lend its support to either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, according to company's executive chairman Eric Schmidt. "We have not taken a position on the American election and nor do I expect us to," said the longtime Googler, speaking at Startup Grind in London on Wednesday.Google might be how much of the world gets its information about politics these days, but it is not immune to accusations of political bias. Schmidt has previously been described as a "kind of guru" to President Barack Obama's campaign manager, and Google employees were found to be the No. 2 donor to the Democratic National Committee at the last election. But Google has been careful to ensure the company itself does not openly affiliate itself with one political party.Trump is proving to be an incredibly divisive Republican candidate, to the extent that Buzzfeed tued away a $1.3 million advertising deal with the Republican National Convention. If Google was going to publicly align itself to the Democrats, or distance itself from the Republicans, now would probably be the moment. Thanks to Schmidt's declaration, we know it won't, but that doesn't mean that Clinton won't receive similar support as her predecessors from Google employees on an individual basis."We always had policy that the company does not have a policy in these areas," said Schmidt, alluding to Google's public-facing political non-partisanism. Individual employees, though, are free to take whatever political stance they so wish. Googlers are on the whole, Schmidt conceded, are a liberal bunch -- something he sees as being reflective of the political outlook of the San Francisco Bay Area in Califoia, , ...ادامه مطلب

  • Watch Kobe Bryant play a Ghostbuster (or not) - CNET

  • Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.Enlarge ImageHe can only add to the movie's greatness. Players Tribune/YouTube screenshot by Chris Matyszczyk/CNET The upcoming "Ghostbusters" movie has been getting mixed advance mutter. (I'm being my usual polite). The first trailer was assailed by Kevin Smith, a director who's had his own share of hits and misses. And even one of the movie's stars, Melissa McCarthy, said it was confusing. In an atmosphere of such angst, who are you going to call? Why, that famed performer Kobe Bryant.The just-retired NBA star revealed on Thursday that he enjoys a cameo in an ad premiering on Thursday during the NBA finals. There he is, all suited up in Ghostbusters gear and ready to what? Flop, perhaps? (I mean "flop" in the basketball sense, of course.)Should you be surprised to see Bryant -- not the most popular NBA star ever -- in such a work of art, please don't be. He's already declared he has artistic pretensions. He's created a company to produce movies. And who could forget the way he announced his retirement with a poem? Yes, an ode to basketball. Surely his presence in this new "Ghostbusters" ad can only enhance the movie's potential. You will be able to see for yourself when it's released July 14 in Australia and July 15 in the US and UK. The film, a reboot of the '80s franchise, features an all-female crew of Ghostbusters and is directed by Paul Feig. I understand, however, that Bryant himself isn't in the movie. He's just a fan of the original.I fancy this will be the first step toward Bryant taking on leading roles in other remakes. Or at least in ads for other remakes. And no, I'm not thinking of something low level like "Space Jam." I'm thinking "A Star Is Bo." Or perhaps "Flash Gordon."Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Former FCC chairman Powell dishes on over-regulation and Donald Trump (Q&A) - CNET

  • Michael Powell, a former FCC chairman and currently head of the cable industry's biggest lobbying group, is frustrated.NCTA President Michael Powell addresses the cable industry at the trade group's annual show. Cable companies have been "increasingly saddled with heavy rules without any compelling evidence of harm to consumers or competitors," Powell, president of National Cable & Telecommunications Association, said at an industry trade show last week. He pointed to proposals to ensure more competition in the cable set-top box business and to regulate privacy for Inteet service providers as evidence of "tectonic shifts that have crumbled decades of settled law and policy." For consumers, he says these regulatory policies will lead to higher costs as they are encouraged to buy set-top boxes no one wants. Meanwhile, the privacy rules leave out the biggest companies, like Google, Facebook and Amazon, that are already collecting and selling sensitive information about consumers online. Proponents of such rules argue that consumers will ultimately have more choice and lower prices. CNET sat down with Powell to talk about the issues facing the cable industry. He offered his candid views on the Federal Communications Commission's set-top box proposal and its plans to regulate Inteet privacy, as well as his thoughts on the presidential campaign. Below is an edited excerpt of that conversation.Q: You said the FCC launched an assault on the cable industry. Do you think the FCC is picking on cable companies? Powell: It's not that they're picking on us. But regulatory agencies set priorities. They establish visions that guide their agenda, and what I see emerging is a very pointed view that the Inteet communications ecosystem is increasingly perceived as bifurcated rather than being seen as a virtuous ingredient of what drives Inteet growth. Instead they're considered a barrier or an impediment to that.Let's talk about the FCC's set-top box proceeding. The FCC wants to, ...ادامه مطلب
