Nielsen Will Start Tracking Netflix and Amazon Video

GuldKalle Re:What about SSL? (55 comments)

It's still encrypted when played back, so it's just white noise. Netflix installs a decryption implant as part of the subscription.

Blizzard Announces Overwatch, a First-Person Shooter

GuldKalle Re:Destiny ? (183 comments)

That's the problem, it doesn't make sense. When talking platforms, you'll distinguish by processor/instruction set or by OS family. Can you show an example (other than when installing OSX) where your definition of PC is better than using the OS family?

Blizzard Announces Overwatch, a First-Person Shooter

GuldKalle Re:Destiny ? (183 comments)

If you install Windows on a mac, does it turn into a "PC"? What's a "PC" called if you install Linux on it? It seems like a pretty useless definition.

Stolen Adobe Passwords Were Encrypted, Not Hashed

GuldKalle Re:Am I imagining it? (230 comments)

Not really. You could still test all users against the top 100 passwords in a reasonable amount of time. After that, test if their mail accounts have the same password.
It won't get you all user passwords, but the low hanging fruit / naive / non-tech-savvy users are probably a better target anyway

GuldKalle Re:Wait a second... (230 comments)

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

GuldKalle Re:Scala is a scripting language? (577 comments)

Java can run in a console, too. Does scala have an equivalent to python or javascript eval()?

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

GuldKalle Re:Scala is a scripting language? (577 comments)

That doesn't mean it's not compiled. It just means that it's compiled automatically and possibly saved to a temporary location.
