MySpace reportedly loses 50 million songs uploaded over 12 years

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 5:30 Internet Services Music MySpace may have lost 12 years of music in a “server migration project.” Lionel Bonaventure / AFP/Getty Images MySpace may have lost your digital memories in a server migration.”As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace,” it said in a note at the top of the site.”We apologize for the inconvenience. If you would like more information, please contact our Data Protection Officer at DPO@myspace.com.” Tags 5center_img Comments Share your voice Andy Baio, one of the people behind Kickstarter, tweeted that it could mean millions of songs uploaded between the site’s Aug. 1, 2003 launch and 2015 are gone for good.”Myspace accidentally lost all the music uploaded from its first 12 years in a server migration, losing over 50 million songs from 14 million artists,” he wrote Sunday.”I’m deeply skeptical this was an accident. Flagrant incompetence may be bad PR, but it still sounds better than ‘we can’t be bothered with the effort and cost of migrating and hosting 50 million old MP3s,’ ” Baio noted.MySpace didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.It might seem like a dim and distant memory now, but MySpace was an essential springboard for musicians like Arctic Monkeys in 2005 and the most popular site in the US in 2006. It was got a makeover back in 2013, when it was refurbished and rebranded as a cool place to share music and video.First published at 5:07 a.m. PT.Updated at 9:44 a.m. PT: Adds background detail.

New Earthlike planets in our cosmic neighborhood could be habitable

first_img Space,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

University of Göttingen, Institute for Astrophysics As far as the universe goes, Teegarden’s star, a faint red-dwarf, is located pretty much next door. Astronomers have discovered two intriguing planets located in the star’s habitable zone where they could possibly host liquid water.A research team led by the University of Gottingen in Germany announced the Earth-like exoplanet discovery on Tuesday. Teegarden’s star sits just 12.5 light-years away from us, but it’s very different from our own sun. It’s much cooler and dimmer  and wasn’t even discovered until 2003.teegardensplanets2Enlarge ImageThis illustration imagines the view from the Teegarden’s star exoplanets back toward our solar system and Earth. University of Göttingen, Institute for Astrophysics “The two planets resemble the inner planets of our solar system,” said Mathias Zechmeister, lead author of a study on the exoplanets in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. They are both slightly heavier than Earth and might be part of a larger system with more planets.Before we get too excited, it’s important to remember that “Earth like” is no guarantee of a planet hosting life.  The discovery came about through the Carmenes project, which is focused on finding exoplanets around small, cool stars. Carmenes had already located nine other exoplanets.One fun feature of the planets around Teegarden’s star involves the star’s particular location. Possible alien occupants could conceivably look toward our solar system and spot Earth transiting the sun. This creates a faint dimming of our own star as our planet passes in front of it.Perhaps at the same time we’re looking toward Teegarden’s star, extraterrestrials are looking back at us, wondering if Earth could sustain life as they know it. In this wide, wonderful universe, it’s a possibility. Tags Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90)last_img read more

Reliance Jio may help RCom to pay spectrum fee of Rs 5384

first_imgMukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio may help Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications (RCom) in paying up a liberalisation fee of Rs 5,384 crore for sharing its 800 MHz spectrum in 16 circles. The spectrum liberalisation fee is collected from telecom operators for all the circles where airwaves were not auctioned.The department of telecommunications (DoT) had, on 22 December, also asked RCom to pay a one-time spectrum usage charge of Rs 1,596 crore within a month, sources told Business Standard.”The company will submit a bank guarantee equal to the one-time spectrum usage charge of Rs 1,596 crore as the matter is sub judice,” the sources said.RCom, India’s fourth largest telecom operator by subscribers, plans to partner with Reliance Jio to offer 4G services. In September last year, RCom chairman Anil Ambani had said the company would enter into a “strategic partnership” with Reliance Jio for 4G spectrum sharing-cum-trading.RJio possesses 2,300 MHz in all circles, 1,800 MHz in 18 circles and 850 MHz in 10 circles. But, 800 MHz band provides good connectivity indoors and offers seamless voice services through Voice over LTE (VoLTE). The benefits of having 800 MHz spectrum has made the deal “critical” to roll out 4G services. The tie-up will enable RJio to provide 4G services over the 800 MHz band across 10 circles.On the other hand, the partnership will also be beneficial to RCom, as it can use Jio’s 4G network in the 10 circles without incurring any “incremental capex cost”.By the end of September, RCom had a huge debt load of Rs 39,800 crore, which it plans to reduce to Rs 20,000 crore by selling its tower business Reliance Infratel.Meanwhile, the merger of RCom and Sistema Shyam Teleservices (SSTL), which provides telecom services through MTS brand, will enable the former to gain access to liberalised 800 MHz spectrum in eight circles. MTS has a strong presence in non-voice segment and derives nearly half of its total revenues from the segment.Analysts said that increased competition in the data services will likely lead to further increase in capital expenditure by the operators to keep growth intact. Telecom companies are also expected to purchase spectrum from others at a higher price, resulting in increased debt levels.In November last year, Idea Cellular had agreed to buy spectrum for two circles — Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh (West) — from Videocon for Rs 3,310 crore, which is double the amount paid to acquire spectrum for those circles in the March 2015 auction.last_img read more

Allor helps House approve statewide grant for veteran services

first_img14Mar Allor helps House approve statewide grant for veteran services Categories: Allor News Lawmaker cosponsors bill providing counties with grant for veteran services State Rep. Sue Allor of Wolverine today joined her colleagues in the House in passing legislation providing Michigan counties grants to establish and maintain veteran service offices.Under the legislation Allor is co-sponsoring, each county with a veteran service office that satisfies pre-approved requirements will receive $25,000, plus an additional amount based on the number of veterans in that county. To continue receiving the grant, an established county veteran services department must meet benchmarks for staff performance and reporting while maintaining the previous year’s funding level.“With my father having served in the Pacific Theatre during World War II before eventually needing benefits and assisted living, I have seen firsthand the integral work that accredited Veteran Service Officers (VSOs) perform,” Allor said. “Ensuring that these services are readily available for our veterans statewide is the very least we can do to show our deep appreciation.”Lack of funding and sparse access to services has led to inadequate coverage for portions of the state. Depending on the county, a VSO may only be available for a few hours each month at a single location. Only 72 out of Michigan’s 83 counties currently have a county veteran services department.House Bill 5536 now advances to the Senate for further consideration.#####last_img read more
