AUSTIN, TX -- (Market wired) -- 03/10/14 -- HP -- HP Autonomy today launched Aurasma 3.0, which expands on the world's leading augmented reality (AR) platform by making it even easier for customers and partners to build powerful AR experiences, segment and target content by audience, and drive deeper integration with social media networks.

HP Aurasma delivers compelling, measurable business results -- in the form of greater mobile engagement, customer conversions and click-through rates. As a result, the HP Aurasma business continues to generate strong momentum and now has more than 40,000 customers, double its total customers from six months ago.
To help businesses and digital marketing agencies accelerate the creation and delivery of powerful mobile experiences, HP Aurasma 3.0 includes several significant enhancements and new capabilities
HP 8 1401 Tablet
Suggested retail: $169.99 ($155.80 resellers)
HP is slowly building out its collection of Android tablets, quietly introducing the HP 8. The HP 8 is a moderately priced slate with good looks, but somewhat underwhelming specs that fall shy of its $169.99 price tag.
Physically, the tablet is nicely sized and attractive. It measures 7.8 by 5.3 by 0.31 inches and weighs 0.69 pounds. I like the white and silver finish, which looks a little less generic than the company’s line of Slate tablets. The 7.85-inch IPS LCD, on the other hand, features just 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, which works out to a grainy 163 pixels per inch. The HP 8 is somewhat underpowered as well. It’s running on a quad-core chip from Chinese company Allwinner, which is something you don’t see every day. It has just 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, though there’s a microSD card slot expandable up to an additional 32GB. The 3,800mAh battery is a bit small for the screen size.
The location of the pet food store is in Oakland, across from San Francisco:
There also is Paws and Claws in the Dimond District, Canine Comforts in Jack London Square, and Pet Food Express and PetVet Petfood in North Oakland. Some foods are grain- and corn-free, ingredients that can cause allergic reactions in some animals. PetVet, which began 30 years ago as a veterinary clinic, sells medically prescribed foods for animals with health problems.
At Pet Food Express in the Rockridge Shopping Center (in North Oakland), well-heeled customers spend up to $110 for a 4-pound bag of K9 Natural dog food. Freeze-dried and fresh refrigerated raw meats are also available. A 5-pound roll of fresh venison or bison costs just under $40. Or maybe your pet would prefer duck, rabbit or venison meat medallions, 4 pounds for $21 to $27. A 30-pound bag of dried food costs about $100.
No neighborhood is immune. A vintage mission-style house across the street from the home of the late Steve Jobs was torn down by a software executive who bought it in October 2012 for $9 million with plans to build a new house on it. Later, the executive changed his mind, and sold the property for $11.4 million.
The lot comes with approved plans for a one-story, 6,000-square-foot home with a 5,570-square-foot basement for a total of 11,635 square feet.
Investors are responsible for some of the scrapped lots.
Mark Wong, an agent with Alain Pinel Realtors in Saratoga, said a Cupertino tear-down that costs $1.2 million can be replaced with a 3,500-square-foot custom home for about $1.9 million, he said. "Eventually, they can sell it for $2.5 million to $2.6 million and make $500,000 to $600,000 profit in 6 months or less. Not a bad return, and they will repeat this flip process over and over again."
And nearly 3 more years to go after nearly 2000 mornings already.
and zero fed rate.
Job gains of 175K beat forecasts; UE rate up to 6.7%
February Nonfarm Payrolls: +175K vs. consensus +154K, +129K previous (revised from 113K).
Unemployment rate: 6.7% vs. 6.6% consensus, 6.6% previous.
Maybe most surprising in today's report is the 0.4% increase in average hourly earnings, the biggest gain in nearly a year.
The labor force participation rate is flat at 63% - it was 63.5% a year ago. The employment-to-population ratio is flat at 58.8% - it was 58.6% a year ago.
You do know that it was rather ~$125K and not ~225K because of demographic changes right?
" ... it takes 225K new jobs per month to keep up with the growing workforce ... "
we can do better if the obstructionists would pass the infrastructure job bill pronto:
Jobless Claims down 26K to 323K
Initial Jobless Claims: -26K to 323K vs. 338K consensus, 334K prior revised (349K prior).
Continuing claims -8K to 2.91M.
What's wrong with these private firm that seems to be so very wrong so often; they are supposed to be based on hundreds of thousands of payroll checks cut !!!
Recent ADP job gains revised lower, but others pushed higher
Today's ADP jobs release (+139K in February vs. 150K expectations) is notable for major revisions to previous numbers, with the most recent months revised sharply lower as those months further back are revised significantly higher.
Originally reported as a gain of 175K, January is cut to 127K.
December cut to 191K from 227K, November raised to 245K from 215K, October to 196K from 130K, September to 215K from 166K.
Indices all made new YTD highs: ADP tomorrow and Friday's UE data. Place thy bets.
scam, Okay for you to listen to Rust Limpball but ought to listen to some mainstream sources as well:
At home, this intervention looks to be one of the most unpopular decisions Putin has ever made. The Kremlin’s own pollster released a survey on Monday that showed 73% of Russians reject it. In phrasing its question posed in early February to 1,600 respondents across the country, the state-funded sociologists at WCIOM were clearly trying to get as much support for the intervention as possible: “Should Russia react to the overthrow of the legally elected authorities in Ukraine?” they asked. Only 15% said yes — hardly a national consensus.
I agree with you on this. All those earned income credits passed into law since Clinton years are welfare programs for the big corporations who continue to squeeze employee compensation and move them to government programs in income credits, food stamps, section 8's, childcare, education credits, medicaid, medicare D ... etc.
On the other hand, if the obstructionists refused to work with POTUS to raise the living standard of workers, those income credits are the only solution.
Ditto with the conflicts elsewhere, particularly in Africa. Of course we have to pick our fights and priority is USA interest, humanitarian down the list.
So they were there early on like every other countries and started packing for home once they realized that it was no picnic. Now, how about the other turfs I listed?
Germany needs to deal with its own neighbors. Let the NATO powers lead and we support. Where were the German troops when our soldiers were in harms way in Afghanistan? Where were they when we took the lead in Palestine, Syria, Libya, North Korea ... Time for them to move their Gluteus maximus.
No more free rides for richer members Germany, Canada and Japan in particular:
We, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States and the President of the European Council and President of the European Commission, join together today to condemn the Russian Federation’s clear violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, in contravention of Russia’s obligations under the UN Charter and its 1997 basing agreement with Ukraine. We call on Russia to address any ongoing security or human rights concerns that it has with Ukraine through direct negotiations, and/or via international observation or mediation under the auspices of the UN or the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. We stand ready to assist with these efforts.
We also call on all parties concerned to behave with the greatest extent of self-restraint and responsibility, and to decrease the tensions.
We note that Russia’s actions in Ukraine also contravene the principles and values on which the G-7 and the G-8 operate. As such, we have decided for the time being to suspend our participation in activities associated with the preparation of the scheduled G-8 Summit in Sochi in June, until the environment comes back where the G-8 is able to have meaningful discussion.
We are united in supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and its right to choose its own future. We commit ourselves to support Ukraine in its efforts to restore unity, stability, and political and economic health to the country. To that end, we will support Ukraine’s work with the International Monetary Fund to negotiate a new program and to implement needed reforms. IMF support will be critical in unlocking additional assistance from the World Bank, other international financial institutions, the EU, and bilateral sources.

How soon you had forgotten those payroll tax holidays, foreign earnings tax repatriation, Auto bailout and TARP under Dubya, all before the 2008 election date. Without those stimulus to aid the muni governments, small businesses, unemployment benfits, tax credits, payroll tax holidays and inrastructure jobs, think there would not be more layoffs? Remember these old businesses:
Sizzler, Sambo's Souper Bowl, Cory's, Jasco's, Kings Table Buffet, Ribs City, Katsu's, (Todai -most locations), Shakey's Pizza, Straw Hat Pizza, Popeye's, Albatross, Fresh Choice ... Mervybs, Factory 2 U, Lucky Supermarket, Thrifty, Longfellow Lumber, Ben Franklin, Circuit City, Hobbytown USA, Kay Bee Toys, Linens N Things, Miller's Outpost, Toy Depot, Taj Bazaar ... HealthSouth, Countrywide, Washington Mutual, Nvastar Financial, K-Mart, New Century Financial, Calpine, Adelphia, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns ... Not to mention all those furniture stores, Loan offices, Real Estate and Hotels.
And the millions of layoffs from businesses that catered to them.
