Following the release of The Internship this week, job-rating website Glassdoor reports that interns at Google are paid an average $5,800 monthly, with specialized software engineer interns earning up to $6,700 per month. Microsoft and Amazon interns also earn more than $5,500 per month, with research interns at Microsoft making $7,000 monthly. That's better than a job at the Dalkey Archive Press!
Tobyd, The New York Coliseum was a behemoth of a building to the right of the much more modest Huntington Hartford building in the photo, it ( the Coliseum ) was part office building and convention center until it was torn down in 2000. The Huntington Hartford ( think A&P supermarkets ) building started off as an art museum, became abandoned and its sidewalks turned into cardboard shanty towns by the homeless. Ever since its inception it has been the target of much architectural angst, the last I heard its shame has been covered by a new facade.
It's also chilling that smartphone-makers have been slow to respond when there are plenty of third-party apps available that disable phones once they're lost or stolen. Apple just incorporated that capability, something I added years ago to my family's phones via Lookout. Of course, whenever someone's phone gets stolen they have to buy a new one, making it a pretty good sales model. And I've had friends who bought phones from eBay, then got burnt when those used phones didn't work. You don't necessarily know the history of those used phones; some could well be stolen, although I know eBay works to prevent that and does have mechanisms in place to protect sellers and buyers.
"Reportedly, 40 percent of robberies in New York each year involve cellphones."
It's alarming And I think that it's high time that the concerned authorities should look into this matter! Locking/unlocking your phone with facial recognition technology was a smart idea which was being included in the last Friday file and has the potential of making the stolen gadgets useless for the robbers (similar to the case of credit cards) but I am afraid they will start forcing the people to unlock their gadgets at the spot just after the act of snatching!
