If you were thinking that the FAA doesn t really have a say in what you do with drones, you can kiss that thought goodbye.At the U.S. district court in Connecticut, a federal judge ruled against drone pilot Austin Haughwot and his father Bret in this matter.The Haughwots attorney argued that the Federal Aviation Authority has no authority to regulate drones, according to Ars Technica.The ruling now can be used as precedent, just in case others were wondering about the FAA s reach.It turns out this drone pilot attracted attention from the YouTube videos he posted depicting a drone he rigged with a handgun.The original video was posted last July, and in early November the FAA sent the Haughwots administrative subpoenas looking for a number of records, including accounting of any money they might have earned from the YouTube video.
Nearly two months after Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp and four months after Elon Musk and his wife, Talulah Riley, called it quits for the second time, the actress and the entrepreneur have been hanging out, according to TMZ.For those doing a double take, Heard and Musk have apparently been friendly for several years, confirming our well-tested theory that all rich people know each other.TMZ claims, however, that Muskheard let it happen have become closer in recent months, following the Justice League actress split from Depp.Sources told the site that Heard and her sister were spotted hanging out at Musk s hotel bungalow in Miami, and the pair had a private dinner at his house together in Los Angeles two weeks ago.If you still have doubts, TMZ also learned that Heard went to ― gasp ― Musk s office, and he in return has been to her home.Make of the news what you will because TMZ says that no one from Team Amber has confirmed that the two are doing anything more than screening old episodes of Heard s forgotten CW gem, Hidden Palms.

WASHINGTON -- The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits declined slightly last week, falling to the lowest point in 13 weeks.The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly benefit applications dipped by 1,000 to 253,000, the lowest level since it stood at 248,000 for the week of April 16.The weekly claims applications had been at 254,000 for the previous two weeks.Weekly claims, which are a proxy for layoffs, have been below 300,000 for 72 consecutive weeks, the longest stretch since 1973.Despite this prolonged low level, there had been worries that employment growth was slowing after weak reports in April and May.However, the anemic increase of 11,000 jobs in May was followed by a gain of 287,000 in June, easing fears that the country's job machine might be sputtering.

This HP all-in-one is impressively light and compact, but it sacrifices too much in the way of quality to achieve this and keep the price down.Ink cartridges represent reasonable valueThe new HP, the one called HP Development Company, hasn't been shy when it comes to trying new things.Between the world's thinnest laptop the HP Spectre , a 3-in-1 smartphone the HP Elite x3 and the world's fastest desktop printers the Officejet Pro range , the company has had a busy 12 months.Priced £59.99 at Currys around $80, AU$105 , it isn't expensive, although you are paying a premium for going small.The box this MFP comes in contains a few leaflets, an installation disc, a power cable, and a USB lead – a rarity in this day and age for a cheap printer – along with the printer itself.
The BBC's launched its BBC app today, a tool designed to let people filter the vast virtual lorry loads of material it publishes so they end up with a bespoke news experience free from Brexit/Top Gear/politics or whatever the kids of today have had enough of hearing about.The bad news is that you have to go through a signing in or registration process first, as all this customisation can only be done via a BBC ID account; after that there's a massive list of categories to sort through in order to populate your personalised news feed.The setup process also includes a yes/no option to have the app notify you about relevant stories twice a day, which is handy as being pinged about local news and things "the people" are talking about may quickly become tedious.Do all this and it's a simple reader application like the many news curation tools already out there, only one that only pulls in stories from BBC sources -- and has a weather forecast atop the page and tells you where you are if you've opted to let it know your location.It's not exactly thrillingly innovative, but it is a nicely designed and clean tool with lots of white space and the option to filter out celebrity news.It could do with a widget, mind.
In its never-ending quest to attract more users, Twitter is hoping that its next shot is an easy layup instead of an airball.On Tuesday, the National Basketball Association said it has expanded its partnership with Twitter to include more and exclusive live NBA programming and video to be shown on the Twitter, Vine and Periscope platforms.The highlight of the deal is a new, weekly NBA pregame show that will be streamed on Twitter with first-of-its-kind elements that will be exclusive to the microblogging site.The NBA said it will also launch a second program that will be exclusive to Twitter, but no other details of that program were given.The NBA also plans to offer behind-the-scenes videos that will run on the Vine and Periscope apps, which are owned by Twitter.What the deal doesn t include are actual, live NBA games.The NBA current broadcast deal with the ABC, TNT and ESPN TV networks, valued at $24 billion, runs for nine more years.Financial terms of Twitter s deal with the NBA weren t disclosed.Twitter is expected to sell ads that will be carried during the NBA programming and split advertising revenue with the league.Twitter s deal follows the company s announcement earlier this year that it will stream Thursday night National Football League games this fall.That deal, valued at $10 million, includes 10 weeks worth of Thursday night NFL games.Photo: Twitter logo on a computer screen.

Bubba Watson, the fifth-ranked golf player in the world, just can t seem to get around a golf course like regular pros.Three years ago, he boarded a hovercraft and glided over fairways, bunkers and water hazards.Now he s ready to fly over them in the world's first golf cart jetpack.The two-time PGA Masters champ is featured in a new stunt video from Oakley and Thinkmodo, the marketing, media and video company that memorably brought you Devil Baby yes, that s a thing , Tiny Cop Lifting Car and the Automated Selfie Stick, which strangely never caught on with Kim Kardashian..Oakley commissioned the new video, which Mashable is debuting here, to celebrate the return of golf to the Olympics when they kick off in Brazil on Aug. 5.Watson's somewhat nontraditional style of play fit the creation of this radical golf cart design.
I'm John Ore, SVP of product for Business Insider.The following is part of a talk I recently gave at Mobile Moments NYC 2016, which coincided with the launch of our newest brand, INSIDER.Like many publishers, Business Insider recognizes the value that social platforms offer in reaching our readers where they already congregate -- which is increasingly on mobile devices.Our goal is to deliver our readers the content they crave, where and when they want it.That means distributing our content outside of our growing family of sites to platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.And our efforts in engaging this social and mobile audience have paid off.
The advent of new technology has historically moved society forward.Beginning with the onset of the Third Industrial Revolution and Digital Age in the 20th-century, that shift has occurred and will continue to do so at an unprecedented rate; the nature of learning and the education system must move with it, so that the world s youth are prepared for the future of work, a collaborative, yet individualized system of specialized practitioners — as evident in the gig economy.This blog will explore the proliferation of technology in both the classroom and the home, and the increased rate of self-actualized, experiential learning, which I believe will continue to accelerate and with it the development of hard skills during adolescence that are necessary for the success of tomorrow s leaders.

Like many seemingly simple games it s much smarter than it first appears, yet also a little too smart for its own good.Necropolis might look and play a little like a cel-shaded Dark Souls, but it s actually a roguelike; a hack-and-slash dungeon crawl through procedurally generated levels, complete with permadeath when everything goes sour.The timing and evasion-focused combat, where every weapon has its own weight and speed, comes direct from the FromSoftware playbook, as does the close third-person view.However, in terms of actual structure, we re firmly in roguelike territory.Meanwhile, a floating golden pyramid – The Brazen Head – doles out additional quests, which may or may not include slaughter shopping lists kill 6 of this or 10 of that , missions to make food or potions, or a request to smash up any pottery around the level.Doing so will earn tokens to spend on unlocking special chests at the start of each level, or codices more on these later .
