Patent Troll Says Anyone Using Wi-Fi Infringes

DOJ: We Can Force You To Decrypt That Laptop
Considering that the key for a one time pad must be as long or longer then the data to be encrypted I don't see how that helps. Can anyone really memorize several GB worth of random values?
And I'm not sure what you mean by revealing it would be meaningless. Once the key is known revealing the plain text is a simple matter for a one time pad.

On Several Fronts, US Gov't Prepares To Regulate Online Privacy
They'll just package it with the backdoor mandate the NSA wants. It'll pass under some title like "The Citizen Privacy, Security and Safety Act" because how could someone possibly oppose those?
7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail
Come on now. Everyone know if you eat zombie flesh you become a zombie. Before you know it we'll be up to our necks in zombie lion, zombie tiger and zombie bears. However, zombie birds will probably be the worst considering the distances they can cover.
Narco-Blogger Beats Mexico Drug War News Blackout
I guess you never know when you will need an M-16 with a large clip to take down your own country's elected government.
Pet peeve of mine.
This is a Clip
This is a Magazine
The clip is used to feed rounds into the magazine. The magazine may either be fixed like on an M1 Garand or Removable like on an M-16.
Abandon Earth Or Die, Warns Hawking
In the long run we're all dead?
Then why even try in the first place? Could it be that there is some worth in doing something despite the fact it may amount to nothing in the big picture of things?
Colleges Stepping Up Anti-Cheating Technology
I actually had a situation similar to #2 but both classes were during the same semester. I simply went to both professors and asked if it would be a problem to reuse my paper and neither had a problem with it. Got an 'A' on both papers too.
Now a classmate of mine did something similar but didn't first check with the professors. He didn't get in trouble but was asked to rewrite one of the papers.
US Plans Cyber Shield For Private Companies and Utilities
Do keep in mind that the NSA is one of the largest employers of Ph.D. Mathematicians in the US. They wrote the book on SELinux and are generally considered to be 5 years ahead of the next leader in the private sector.
Who ever put the NSA together did a good job, at least in the sense of it accomplishing its mission.
Pakistani Lawyer Wants Mark Zuckerberg Executed
I guess Ray Person (Generation Kill) was right, "It's lack of pussy fucks countries up."
EU To Monitor All Internet Searches
As a legislature becomes more isolated from it's constituency it begin to more closely resemble an oligarchy.
As long as the courts are allowed to reinterpret a laws meaning these kind of things are inevitable.
BP Says "Top Kill" Operation Has Failed
Removing explicit Limited Liability protection that the government provides to all corporations from lenders and plaintiffs would be a good start. With owners suddenly being personally liable for the actions of their company they'd really start to care about what they did.
Proposed Law Would Require ID To Buy Prepaid Phones
Because it's not about catching crooks, it's about maintain an image of potency. I can also see this being used as a stepping stone to a revival of REALID to "curb fake IDs" and "protect us from terrorists" all while doing neither.

FTC Could Gain Enforcement Power Over Internet
Pretty sure electronic fraud law cover that, as well as RICO. Once you start directly interfering with commerce you're done. That not even taking into account the fallout in PR.
FTC Could Gain Enforcement Power Over Internet
Thank you Wickard v. Filburn
Volcanic Ash Heading Towards North America
And why is it I don't hear either side giving any real consideration to a reinstatement of Glass-Steagall? No, they want to give the power and responsibility to the FED. The very institution at the heart of the matter which also didn't see it all coming. All the talk of regulation reform is just moving deck chairs on the Titanic.

Health Care Reform
Though on other side, the question all Americans should be asking themselves is: do private insurers have better resume???
Before WWII I say they had a decent record then we got FDR's wage and price controls which set everything in motion.
One can easily bash gov't - bashing health insurers might backfire (who like all the big businesses have their hand in pretty much everything). And if gov't does shitty job, one can always vote for opposition/independent - you rarely if ever have much choice when dealing with health insurers.
The problem with this is once you create a hugh new bureaucracy those people employed by it aren't about to vote against their own lively hood.
