Russian Government Edits Wikipedia On Flight MH17
That's a lot of what I wanted to say.
If you don't have a citation, it doesn't go on wikipedia. If you can prove all this shit, then post away.
In Canada, if you post information like this you are guilty of "Seditious Libel" and are sentenced to 14 years in prison. I can't imagine what will happen in freedom-loving Russia if that's what Canada will do.
Hacking Online Polls and Other Ways British Spies Seek To Control the Internet
Good for the GCHQ. Just because the agenda is set by the government doesn't mean there aren't other forum stuffers and poll manipulators out there. That's a two decades old technology.
Unfortunately the people who its working on are also two decades behind in web savvy learnin' type stuffs.
Chinese State Media Declares iPhone a Threat To National Security
Do us a favor China, keep them eh? Dump them on the homes of the executives of FoxConn and blow open the doors of their slavery castle.
Ode To Sound Blaster: Are Discrete Audio Cards Still Worth the Investment?
My motherboard has an S/PDIF output, which I link via fibre optic cable directly to my 7.1 channel hometheater AVR. Can your soundblaster best that?
The only reason today for any kind of separate audio equipment on any computer these days is (besides onboard being damaged and needing a substitute) multi-channel rigs for recording and reproducing studio work. That is all.
TSA Prohibits Taking Discharged Electronic Devices Onto Planes
......and that's exactly why they ask you to power them up. This is a good point. A terrorist *could* pack the batteries with explosives and leave the rest of the laptop to be only slightly functional. But with no power up, you could remove the drives and boards and fans and get lots of bomb in there. With this option, at most you could take some of the battery out, replace it with a lesser capacity device and still get the ole' poweron tone and the nod-and-the-wave from the security staff and be on the plane with some really not nice stuff.
Fortunately for us most people don't feel like killing themselves for any kind of cause, and the only real terrorists out there work for the same people as dreamed up the TSA.
Goldman Sachs Demands Google Unsend One of Its E-mails
True enough, but he was emailing it internally. Ideally it shouldn't leave the building or VPN.
This is a huge huge problem these days. Email is obsolete but non-technical people don't even know what to use as an alternative. I don't even know what to use as an alternative, unless I conjure up some SSH keys and perform an SCP.
Philips Ethernet-Powered Lighting Transmits Data To Mobile Devices Via Light
We talked about this stuff already when they announced it.
US Secret Service Wants To Identify Snark
His name is Sheldon Cooper.
The Disappearing Universe
Out of all things the subject where an open mind is needed most is science, especially deep physics such as this stuff. But most people don't do that. They read some opinionated prat's rambling on a subject, who makes outlandish claims based on preliminary evidence, and then they think "oh well it's decided then."
Popular Shuttered Torrent Site Demonoid Returns
Is it really back this time or is it another trick to grab logins like before?
US Navy Wants Smart Robots With Morals, Ethics
If they develop a robot with morals and ethics why would they want to use it in the navy? It won't shoot people. It won't torture them for you. It won't attack other ships. It might see issue with fixing *your* ship so that you can shoot them. What good is it to an organization that owns an earthquake weapon and hundreds of nuclear subs/ships?
$7 USB Stick Aims To Bring Thousands of Poor People Online
These particular guys don't have to address those issues at all. *SOMEONE* Does. But that's what's nice about Africa. Someone will. The place has come up with all sorts of interesting and strange solutions to problems that are unique to their continent. They literally are the bleeding edge. Necessity is the mother of invention, and slums in Africa are the mother of necessity.
Court: Oracle Entitled To Copyright Protection Over Some Parts of Java
Let that dumb language die. It's useless in every way except as a tool to learn coding in a simpler way.
Feds Issue Emergency Order On Crude Oil Trains
You mean to tell me that oil trains aren't reported to emergency officials already? That just seems like common sense. I find it hard to believe that the thousands of people involved in this process aren't already yelling about how there needs to be information passed to governing bodies about the fact that rails are carrying huge amounts of chemicals and oil. Any type of hazardous material should be reported before the train leaves. A truck carrying oil or fuel needs to register its cargo and get a permit to haul it. A ship or airplane same thing. Pipelines declare their cargoes before being built. Am I to understand that for hundreds of years now trains have gotten free reign and can transport anything they want without telling state officials? How fucking stupid are we????

Let's back it with something that has value: fiat currency!
NSA Confirms It Has Been Searching US Citizens' Data Without a Warrant
I clicked on this article because it sounded like an April Fool's joke because the NSA would never admit to this, would they?
Microsoft Promises Not To Snoop Through Email
Your word means nothing. We already had that promise and you broke it. No we don't want another empty promise. You promised Windows 98 would be faster, and the only thing it was faster at was crashing, using up all a computer's memory to encourage upgrades, and catching viruses. You been promising that for decades. Why should this promise be any different?
Fake PGP Keys For Crypto Developers Found
Why would we rely upon the certificate transparency system of Google, purportedly a member of the PRISM Project?
Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'
What a coincidence! That's the island from Lost. They're filming a sequel. It's called "Fucked."
How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?
I just can't see why you haven't thought of grabbing 10 or so 2TB or 3TB drives, copying a segment of the data to them and putting them back in their anti-static bags on the shelf somewhere. SATA drive docks are cheap, or plug it into your eSATA port to access the drive. Perform updates once per week on only the lead drive. I think the problem that remains is software to index it all and know which files need to be backed up and which are on drive X of Y.
