Scientists Silence Extra Chromosome In Down Syndrome Cells

APE992 Practicality? (230 comments)

Assuming we could silence the extra chromosome in an entire human being what sort of results would we see? I'm curious to see the changes that would occur over weeks if not years. Could it reverse the neurological issues?

Apple Deluged By Police Demands To Decrypt iPhones

APE992 Is Apple being compensated? (239 comments)

If they're going to expect Apple to spend time doing their work for them are they are least compensating them for the time and energy necessary for this?

And Quake III for the Dreamcast allowed for a mouse and keyboard too. Wake me up when this becomes universal.

CyanogenMod: the History of an Android Hack

APE992 CM7 saved me from crucifying my Samsung Captivate (118 comments)

I've been using CM7 on my Samsung Captivate for roughly two months now and the change between it and the ROM Samsung/AT&T make available is astounding: A) GPS actually works. On my stock eclair ROM it'd take upwards of a few minutes to get a lock if ever. B) Stock eclair/froyo would give you 3G at best. The Captivate is capable of HSDPA which CM7 offers (but to be fair all you'd really need to do is flash a compatible radio firmware to enable this on stock ROMs). C) Instead of randomly shutting itself off during the day and night, CM7 keeps on ticking 24/7 unless something catastrophic happens. D) I'm not 100% what filesystems each use, but the stock filesystem causes a well known very noticeable lag that CM7 doesn't have. E) Easily modified for Netflix usage. F) None of those god awful AT&T apps forced upon stock ROM users. I hated those with my Palm Treo 680 and I still hate them. To be fair most, if not all, custom roms are capable of the above. I have used others but typically found that my device would continue to randomly shut itself off, though this might be fixed by virtue of having gingerbread instead of eclair.

Court Rules Against TorrentSpy In MPAA Email Suit

APE992 Store and forward (130 comments)

Don't want someone to know something? Don't write it in an e-mail. Any server set to do so can log anything you send through it, along with any of the hops. Ethical to purchase e-mails? Hell no, a good tactic to find out what the other side is doing? Definitely. That said the MPAA is an outdated business model and should DIAF.
