Play this: burglary is a puzzle in 'Third Eye Crime'

Third Eye Crime opens with a familiar scene: a young woman walks into a dimly lit office, while a trench coat-clad man sits behind a desk. Slow, jazzy music plays in the background. She has a problem with her husband, and needs some help. But in this case, the man isn't a private detective — he's a thief with the uncanny ability to predict where people will move moments before they actually do....

Life in the fast lane: reactions to the FCC's bungled net neutrality message

The FCC has had a rough couple days. Controversy exploded yesterday when a Wall Street Journal report warned that the commission is considering new rules that would tear down the core principles of net neutrality and allow already-powerful internet service providers to act as the internet's greedy gatekeepers. Since then, the FCC has made several attempts to reverse the panic and outrage that...

Can a tiny Pacific island nation stop nuclear powers?

The tiny Pacific republic of the Marshall Islands has filed suit against the United States and the eight other nuclear-armed countries, alleging that they haven't met their obligations in working toward global nuclear disarmament. The lawsuits were filed in US federal court and the International Court of Justice and aim to compel the nine nations to begin making a "good faith" effort toward...

Netflix accuses Comcast of charging twice for the same internet content

When Netflix opposed Comcast's looming merger with Time Warner Cable on Monday, the streaming video company did so by raising net neutrality concerns. It argued that Comcast could use its newfound power to charge a toll for content that might compete with its own video offerings — a toll like the one that Netflix already found itself paying to improve the quality of streaming for Comcast customers. Comcast wasn't too happy about that, of course, firing back that it was Netflix's decision to cut out the middleman and work directly with Comcast to speed things up, and that the fee is standard...

Amazon reportedly laying the groundwork for its own delivery service

In a few years, Amazon may handle the entire delivery process for your impulse Prime purchases. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon is in the early stages of branching out its delivery operation into something that could eventually compete directly against UPS and FedEx — two companies that play a critical role in getting its packages to customers today. The online retailer is already testing such a service with trucks making "last mile" drop-offs in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, according to the Journal. Aside from giving shoppers greater control over where and when they take a package, Amazon's big plan would also...

'Watch Dogs' adds real guilt to fake killing

The defining experience of every Grand Theft Auto-style game is running over pedestrians with cars. Typically, I think nothing of it — they’re not really people, after all. They might look a little bit like you and me, but they are devoid of personality, of consciousness, of soul. So when I’m fleeing five cop cars and a pedestrian-filled getaway route presents itself, I don’t hesitate to mow them down. Sometimes I even smile as they bounce off...

FCC chairman says reports of net neutrality's death are 'flat out wrong'

Tomorrow, the Federal Communications Commission will propose new net neutrality rules that will reportedly destroy the concept of net neutrality as we know it, making it okay for internet service providers to establish a "fast lane" for preferred customers and charge an additional toll. Needless to say, those who care about net neutrality weren't too happy to hear that an organization that is supposed to protect communications might sell out to corporate interests. However, Federal...

Apple posts $10.2B in profit on $45.6B in revenue, announces stock split

As investors look to Apple for signs it can continue to grow, the company had better news than many expected, posting a quarter that outdid its performance a year ago. But sales of the iPad were down 16 percent.

Apple reported earnings of $10.2 billion, or $11.62 per share on $45.6 billion in revenue during a quarter that saw the release of no new products. That was above both the $42 to $44 billion in revenue Apple forecast for itself in January, and the $43.6 billion it reported the same...


NYPD commissioner responds to Twitter hashtag disaster: 'I welcome the attention'

The commissioner of the New York Police Department was unruffled by the ugly photos of police violence that flooded Twitter yesterday in response to a tweet from the agency. "I kind of welcome the attention," Commissioner Bill Bratton told the New York Daily News. "We really broke the numbers yesterday."

Just before 2PM, the @NYPDnews account tweeted, "Do you have a photo w/ a member of the NYPD? Tweet us & tag it #myNYPD. It may be featured on our Facebook." The hashtag rapidly turned into...
