Google Explains Why WebView Vulnerability Will Go Unpatched On Android 4.3

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Not to be an apologist for Google, but (579 comments)

Apple and Microsoft control their own update process on all platforms; Google does not. It's the individual carriers who are getting in the way of Android updates.

Calls For European ISPs To Filter Content Could Be Illegal

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Good for a chuckle, anyway. (60 comments)

Of course, the politicians and security beaurocrats are the ones defining which content is "certain" content. But what's really laughable is that actions like this _might_ be precluded by privacy rights, rather than freedom-of speech rights. Sure, I know it's Europe, so muzzling some ideas is deemed OK, theorecically to prevent another Nazi uprising (or whatever).

Cuba's Pending Tech Revolution

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Not to mention... (122 comments)

I used to work for an after-market brake parts supplier. They had a full-line catalog: if you needed a master cylinder for a 55 Checker cab, they could sell you one. The sales and marketing guys used to have wet dreams about the day when Cuba would open up.

Deep-Frying Graphene Microspheres For Energy Storage

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:The ultrasonic nozzles in the TFA... (49 comments)

I remember experimental ultrasonic vapor carburetors (Edelbrock IIRC) from the late 70's. Don't know why they never saw mass production, seemed like a great idea, simple and effective.

Marriot Back-Pedals On Wireless Blocking

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Incomplete summary (179 comments)

We're not talking about them blocking wireless hotspots in guest's rooms, that's just overlap. The issue is that they were blocking wireless hotspots in convention space they were renting out, so the individual conventioneers and exhibitors HAD to buy the Marriot wi-fi package at exorbitant prices.
