Google Prepares Fix To Stop SSL/TLS Attacks

Phaeilo Re:TLS 1.1 or 1.2? (122 comments)

But if you have to renegotiate down to 1.0 because the server does not support it, you are still vulnerable.

Google Patches 30 Chrome Bugs, Adds Instant Pages

Phaeilo Re:Instant Pages? (103 comments)

I don't think your browser runs prefetched javascript. So Google Analytics won't be triggered.

Telex Would Work, But Is It Overkill?

Phaeilo Who will build that router? (92 comments)

So you want a router on level 7 that does a asymmetric crypto on every client_hello that's passing by. Even if such a machine existed and the border ISPs were compensated for additional costs caused by it, I doubt they'd put up with it. Traditional technologies like TOR or VPNs are already available and seem a lot less insane than "Telex".

Dragon Capsule Could Be 1st Private Craft To Dock With ISS

Phaeilo Re:SpaceX vs. NASA vs. Russians vs. Chinese (178 comments)

Maybe they'll start charging passengers for in-flight meals. If it works at 10 km altitude it should work at 300 km. :D

Phaeilo Re:Licensing Fees (473 comments)

Windows 8 ARM Will Not Support Legacy Software

Phaeilo Re:.NET (381 comments)

That's exactly what I thought. However, isn't the "full version" of .NET too big (a few GB) for mobile devices?

An IP Address Does Not Point To a Person, Judge Rules

Phaeilo Customer responsibility (293 comments)

I dislike these 'pay-up-or-else-schemes' as much as anybody else. But in shouldn't each ISP customer be accountable for what happens on their connection? If you decide to share the connection with your family/friends/neighbours it's your job to ensure that they don't abuse it. Otherwise anyone could set up an open wifi and deny any responsibilities for what happens on the connection...

Apple's Secret Weapon To Win the Tablet Wars

Phaeilo Re:Was Microsoft Riight? (716 comments)

I hope the Zune is excluded in your statement, because it had/has a pretty nice GUI that exactly fits its purpose.

Firefox 5 Details: Sharing, Home Tab, PDF Viewer

Phaeilo Chrome's PDF-Viewer sucks (453 comments)

The title says it. Adobe's plugin can display slideshows the way they are supposed to work, by instantly displaying the next page when hitting down. Chrome's viewer just acts like a word processor sliding the pages up slowly, which sucks for reading some slides online.

Google Logo Changes Again, Hinting RT Search?

Phaeilo Re:Streaming Search Vid (212 comments)

I also had streaming search last weekend or even before that. It worked for a few days but then sadly disappeared. It certainly felt very responsive with next to no latency. They also had an option to turn "streaming" off.

Dell Settles With the SEC For $100M

Phaeilo Re:How about reprecautions for one's actions?! (239 comments)

Oh yeah, I still remember when a couple of years ago you would see the Intel logo in _every_ TV ad of the big German electronic stores. I don't think I ever saw an ad for an AMD machine on TV.
