First off, some background: Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held a press conference—or, maybe more properly, issued a statement—and instead of discussing Trump s speech to the CIA or the Women s March events worldwide, Spicer attacked the media for their reporting of the crowd numbers from Inauguration Day.He said magnetometers kept crowds off the Mall in Washington not true and that newfangled, never-before-used ground coverings made the empty spaces look more sparse also not true .And Spicer added that this was the largest audience to ever witness the inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.That final point he backed up with numbers from the WMATA, Washington, DC s public transportation system.Soon after the conference ended, people on social media picked up on the line, recasting it to litigate things that nerds have fought about forever the best Star Trek movie, the best Matrix film, and so on .— Matt @themattprov January 22, 2017

You could be born a patrician or a plebe, a Protestant or a Catholic, a small-town kid or a city slicker.Whether you were in ancient Rome or 1950s Minnesota, chances were you d settle down in the town your parents lived in, go to the church or temple your parents went to, vote for the political party your parents voted for.Not only were the identities pre-fabricated, they were also very binding.When D Artagnan s father sends him off to the capital in the Victor Hugo classic The Three Musketeers, the old man doesn t tell him to go find himself.Instead he tells his son that he has no choice but to be brave for two reasons: the first is that you are a Gascon, and the second is that you are my son.Fight the more for duels being forbidden, since consequently there is twice as much courage in fighting.

Reuters – A South Korean court on Thursday dismissed a warrant to arrest the head of the Samsung Group, the country s largest conglomerate, amid a graft scandal that has led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.The pre-dawn decision by the Seoul Central District Court to allow Jay Y. Lee to go home is likely to come as a major relief to the company, whose leadership vacuum Lee has tried to fill since his father suffered a heart attack in 2014.Lee, who had been questioned for 22 hours last week and was held overnight on Wednesday while the court reached its decision, left the Seoul Detention Centre carrying a white shopping bag and climbed into a car without talking to reporters.The judge said in a statement that an arrest now was not necessary.After reviewing the contents and the process of the investigation so far … it is difficult to acknowledge the necessity and substantiality of an arrest at the current stage, he said.Samsung said in an emailed statement that it appreciated the fact that the merits of this case can now be determined without the need for detention .The group s flagship, Samsung Electronics, is the world s biggest maker of smartphones, flat-screen televisions and memory chips.The special prosecutor s office on Monday said it would seek a warrant to arrest the group s third-generation leader on suspicion of bribery, embezzlement and perjury.Lee had denied wrongdoing.Park, 64, was impeached last month by parliament over the influence-peddling scandal.If the decision is upheld by the Constitutional Court, she will become South Korea s first democratically elected leader to be forced from office early.Park, who remains in office but stripped of her powers while the court decides her fate, has also denied wrongdoing.The special prosecutor has accused Lee of paying bribes totaling 43 billion won $36.70 million to organizations linked to Choi Soon-sil, a friend of the president who is at the center of the scandal, to secure the 2015 merger of two affiliates and cement his control of the family business.Earlier this week, the special prosecutor indicted the chairman of the National Pension Service, the world s third-largest pension fund, on charges of abuse of power and giving false testimony.By Joyce Lee; Additional reporting by Ju-min Park, Se Young Lee and Christine Kim; Writing by Nick Macfie

There have been rumors for a while about Twitter preparing to retire its commerce operation.Now it looks like the company has finally started to wind down its partnerships in confirmation of that fact.Customers of e-commerce platform Shopify are receiving notices informing them that the Twitter sales channel is getting shut down as a result of the Twitter team pivoting way from their ecommerce focus.From what we understand, Twitter is now gradually winding down the Buy button, and with it the partnerships that it forged to bring in retailers and other businesses to use them.At the same time, Twitter will continue to offer a Donate button to give to charitable causes and other non-profits, which Twitter will offer directly.Other links to Buy information, such as this information page on Twitter s Business site, will also slowly now start to disappear, as the products are no longer being offered.

Flygande bilar har länge varit en långkörare i science fiction-sammanhang men i verkligheten har bilen fått stanna kvar på marken till förmån för drönare, men kanske blir det snart ändring på det.Det är flygplans- och helikoptertillverkaren Airbus som enligt Reuters nu hoppas på att få upp ett billiknande fordon i luften innan årets slut.Redan förra året startade Airbus upp en arbetsgrupp med målet att utforska olika koncept för urbana transportfordon i luften, och tanken är att blanda en bil med helikopter för att skapa framtidens kollektivtrafik.Likt en buss i luften som företagsnamnet antyder.För hundra år sedan gick den urbana transporten under jorden, nu har vi resurserna för att gå ovanför marken , sa Tom Enders, vd för Airbus, under en konferens i München, enligt Reuters.Tekniken är fortfarande i sin linda, men Tom Enders försäkrade alla åhörare om att Airbus tar utvecklingen på största allvar och att det finns mycket att vinna på flygande stadstrafik.

Kortadresser are comfortable, but can be dangerous if you do not know the source.You've probably both seen and used them – shortened urls which make a long and convoluted address much simpler to use.There are plenty of services online where you yourself can create such short urls.the Example is Bitly bit.ly , Google's own goo.gl , Hootsuite ow.ly , Twitter's t.co., Gilby tinyurl.com, Gravity4 tr.im and Korturl korturl.com .this is a handy way to, for example, send short links to your friends instead of those horrible long character combinations that sometimes occur on the web.But you might get them yourself also, sometimes, or find them on the web.

The tale of the underage girl who wasn't and still isn't years laterThe owner of Fark.com is furious at Google and wants it to reimburse him for five weeks of lost ads – thanks to a five-year-old story that featured a picture of a girl wrongly believed to be underage.Drew Curtis has taken out his anger in a blog post on the long-running news aggregation website, having been overwhelmed with the irony of having ads pulled over a pic that previously saw a man in Puerto Rico wrongly arrested.Google informed Curtis that it has identified a banned image on Fark.com and thus was pulling the ability for him to run Google ads on the site – something that resulted in a "huge financial hit" thanks to the five weeks it took to resolve.As soon as he received the email saying he had a banned image on his site, he responded immediately, asking the obvious question: where?It took Google three days to respond, pointing out the offending image.

Nintendo's sole sizzle-reel for the Nintendo Switch didn't show off the system's cartridges, which means the document from the French Twitter user may very well contain the world's first look at them.The Hori documents show a few unlabeled cartridges, which look very similar to 3DS carts, tucked into a 24-game carrying case.One other cart is tucked into a combination cartridge-controller carrying case, and this image does a better job offering scale for the sake of measuring a Switch cartridge's size.I admit, digging into a peripheral-preview document is a bit desperate, but anticipation continues to mount for the console as its major reveal looms.Nintendo will host in Tokyo, scheduled for 11 p.m. Eastern time.Expect announcements about the system's price, release date, and launch games lineup.

The Information Commissioner's Office has published some of the numbers it deals with in the world of unsolicited phone calls, revealing that on your average grey and sad UK day it receives 370 complaints from people fed up with all the automated spam calls about PPI and accidents that get flung about the country.That's a huge amount of angry people, given most reactions to dead-air robot calls is to sigh and make a futile attempt to block the number.And what do we all do now when the phone rings and it's no one?Number look-up specialist Tellows says it received a staggering 7,624 requests for information about one single mobile phone number on one day, which clearly suggests that the illegal practise of making mass cold automated calls without consent is going on.There's some trickery involved too.One of the more common complaints involved being called by a lady called "Julie Smith" who asks the recipient if they've had a car accident recently.
