appeals court throws out six intellectual ventures “do it on a computer” patents

But the companies that decided to stand up to IV rather than buckle under have been faring well, as judges have found the patents that IV has chosen to enforce in court less than impressive. It's a telling sign about the giant patent-holder's collection. Given the opportunity to pull just about any patent out of its huge collection, one would assume the company would choose the best

sc dismisses plea to probe role of media

The Supreme Court today dismissed a PIL seeking an SIT probe into the role of media in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam case, saying it is an "attack" on media's independence."We will not direct any investigation against the media unless there is a direct involvement," a bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said, while rejecting the PIL filed by veteran journalist Hari Jaisingh.It seems there is a disguised attempt to curtail independence and freedom of media, the bench said, adding "this is an attack on media. We will not entertain this.""We cannot curtail the right of the media in this manner. Media has been given an independent status in our democratic polity. Why should we entertain this," said the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and Mohan M Shantanagoudar.The court,

house to set up panel to gag media

Karnataka Assembly Speaker K B Koliwad on Wednesday announced setting up a House committee to spell out measures to rein in what he called “irresponsible” and “arbitrary” media.The announcement came after legislators across all political parties came down heavily on the media. The lawmakers charged the media, both print and visual, with blackmail, extortion, character assassination and misleading society. Some of them used unparliamentary language while narrating their bitter encounters with the media. The attack, to begin with, was confined to a section of television channels but later even the print media was not spared. Both the Lower and the Upper Houses devoted much of their time to media bashing. In the Assembly, the members vied with each other to speak out under a particular rule t

unc coach roy williams calls out president trump's tweets

North Carolina head coach Roy Williams didn't mince words when commenting on President Donald Trump's social media activity.Following UNC's 78–53 win over Miami in the ACC tournament on Thursday, Williams was asked about the advantages of the tournament taking place in New York and whether it might garner more media or recruiting attention for his team.His response, in short, was that there were no advantages, and he pointed to social media as a reason why not."It used to be much more [important to play in a big market] than I think it is now," Williams said. "Now everybody has got social media, and we don't need The New York Times to find out what in the dickens is going on in our country. You know, our president tweets out more bulls--- than anybody I've ever seen. We've got social media

fisheye 4 life: how to shoot social media gold with your fisheye lens!

How can I shoot some really awesome, social media realness with my fisheye lens?When people think of a fisheye lens, they probably conjure up thoughts of extreme sport videos, or maybe some hyper-colored, uber loud club footage, or maybe even just GoPro videos where the camera falls from an airplane and lands in a pig pen, or that insane catwalk where models are literally jumping off cliffs.Regardless of what a fisheye lens means to you, the look and effect of one in your photos and videos can add an incredibly different & fun element to your social media posts!Whether you're grabbing grub with a friend, snapping some "candid" modeling shots on the street, doing some bike-riding, flying high in the sky on your vacation, or just chilling with the family, there's room for a fisheye lens to t

nbc invested $500 million in snap's ipo

NBC has made similar investments on other digital media companies in recent years, including $400 million in Buzzfeed and $200 million in Vox Media. And the media giant has worked with Snap in the past. NBC, Buzzfeed and Snap all partnered for coverage during the Rio Olympics this past summer, and NBC has made Snapchat-ready versions of content from some of its most popular programs (including SNL and The Voice). This deal appears to be the result of a year-long attempt from NBC to woo Snap CEO Evan Spiegel into a closer partnership. The question now is wheter Snap's forays into media-created content will change thanks to this investment. A memo from NBC Universal Steve Burke (published by Recode) doesn't provide much in the way of hints. He indicates that more Snapchat-formatted versions

why senator cory booker draws inspiration from social media

Booker's discussion with Google's Malika Saada Saar (senior council on civil and human rights) touched on this theme pretty significantly. Saada noted that social media was both responsible for amplifying movements like Black Lives Matter and the Women's March, but it also has led to mass harassment and hate in a lot of cases.For his part, Booker said that "that the power of those platforms is going to be determined by who engages with them and who uses them," as with all media. But being able to speak directly to an audience is a particularly powerful tool that most politicians didn't have until recently (something that can be just as much a negative as a positive).

u.s. orders ‘mandatory social media check’ for some visa applicants

The U.S. government has ordered a mandatory social media check for some visa applicants, according to a new leak, as well as well as more strenuous screening for applicants identified as ‘warranting increased scrutiny.’ Sources claim the orders were made by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and that the social media checks apply to individuals who are coming from places under ISIS control.The information comes from Reuters which cites diplomatic cables it got access to, as well as unnamed former officials.
