Bash To Require Further Patching, As More Shellshock Holes Found

LookIntoTheFuture Re:not supposed to be on the web! (329 comments)

I'm not sure bash was ever intended to be involved in web facing applications. That's not what it's for! Once you go down that road, even indirectly, there's a lot that can go wrong.

Maybe next someone will run arbitrary user input from the web through g++, execute it in ring 0, and call it a security hole?

Ah. So you've heard of systemd?

Dun, dun, dun, tsss. Is it getting hot in here?

Next Android To Enable Local Encryption By Default Too, Says Google

LookIntoTheFuture Third-Party Doctrine (126 comments)

it leaves unresolved the tension between security and convenience when both companies' devices are configured to upload user content to iCloud and Google+ servers for backup and synchronization across devices

The existence of the Third-Party Doctrine makes the decision simple for me.

Thanks. I really just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one. I spent the bulk of the last 15 modding APK's posts as troll. :)

Justice Sotomayor Warns Against Tech-Enabled "Orwellian" World

LookIntoTheFuture Re:What are the bounds of property? (166 comments)

In a perfect world, people would be polite and ASK if they could take photos of you or your property. But in this reality, people can do whatever they want without thinking about anyone else. Empathy is frowned upon. It's mine and I want it NOW NOW NOW. Wah! he's not letting me do whatever I want to! What an asshole!

Hidden Obstacles For Google's Self-Driving Cars

LookIntoTheFuture Hype (289 comments)

Google often leaves the impression that, as a Google executive once wrote, the cars can “drive anywhere a car can legally drive.”

Wow, that's just a big ol' lie isn't it?

Dell's New Alienware Case Goes to Extremes To Prevent Overheating

LookIntoTheFuture Re:Ineffective advertising (149 comments)

I'm anything BUT an Apple fan, but I think their new design for the Mac Pro is better looking and probably more functional from a shape perspective than this idea from Alienware. Glad to see manufacturers trying new things, but I hope they keep looking.

That thing makes me want to start smoking again so I could ash in it.
