Apple To Face $350 Million Trial Over iPod DRM

Kenja Re:This is typical of the "Jobs era" Apple (135 comments)

Actually... many of them use an obfuscated database to store the songs, just like the iPod. This has been the case going back to the first hard drive based player I got, the Rio Karma.

Kenja There is no more Photoshop. (197 comments)

At least not in the traditional sense of what we all think of when we speak of Photoshop. The new model is a web based subscription app. Which means I will no longer be buying Photoshop.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

Kenja Re:I like... (643 comments)

You are confusing the Republican voters, who will often just elect the person with the (R) next to their name, and their representatives, who will often do things that the voters do not want (but at least their not godless democrats!).

60,000 Oculus Rift DK2 Orders, 20,000+ Units Shipped, New Orders Ship In October

Kenja Re:Eh, Suckers! (67 comments)

While I'm not a fan of the system, what you are paying for is mostly the motion tracking system. I do have the first generation dev kit and it's rather nice compared to similar prior systems (Virtual-IO for example). But it is also majorly over hyped and Facebooks involvement was a death blow for me. But that's just me...

Silent Circle's Blackphone Exploited at Def Con

Kenja Cell phones are insecure. (46 comments)

It's inherent in how they work. Rather then trying to secure them, which I don't think can be done, just start assuming they are insecure and treat them as such. Don't hold a private, personal conversation in a crowded public room and don't send text messages you don't want other people to see.

PayPal's Two-Factor Authentication Can Be Bypassed Using eBay Bug

Kenja unable to replicate findings. (33 comments)

Perhaps I'm not understanding... but as my PayPal and eBay accounts have different passwords and i have two factor authentication setup using a DigiPass 5 rotating cypher key, I am unable to replicate what is being reported. No mater what, I am prompted for my DigiPass token key and password.
