Berkely scientists plan to "Jurassic Park" some extinct pigeons back to life
I suppose "Quarternary Park" just doesn't have that certain "ring" to it.
New Adobe PDF Zero-Day Under Attack

Facebook Calls All-Hands Meeting On Privacy
My opinion is that if you post personally identifiable information to a public website, and expect that information to be kept from all the world's eyeballs, you're being incredibly foolish.
I'm not saying Facebook has no responsibility here, just that people should take care to only share in a public forum what they are comfortable sharing with the entire universe. My Facebook profile contains nothing that I wouldn't want my mom, boss, pastor, or future employer to see.
I'm probably departing Facebook because... well... just watch the South Park Facebook episode and that sums up everything I hate about it.
Privacy? I don't post private stuff to a public website, no matter how much they promise only to share that stuff with "friends" and "networks."
No Ceasefire in DVD Format Battle
I for one would like to be able to take an HDTV recording in its native transport stream format, drop it into a DVD authoring program, and write it to disc for archival. Since 1080p HDTV comes out to something like 7 GB/hr, a 4.7 GB DVD just ain't gonna cut it. Even dual layer is too small.
