Microsoft To Support CentOS Linux In Hyper-V
Most are missing the point of MS supporting this. It's all about the $ in licensing fees of VMware vs. Microsoft. Windows shops pay for windows licenses and always will have to if they want/have to use the OS. Microsoft recognizes that a lot of shops are probably mixed and are attempting to reverse the pay for VMware and drop Windows path that a lot of people are taking. They are offering the MS alternative, use Hyper-V and get Linux support without a VMware tax.
Of course, others would say, its like pay MS and VMware tax and yes that is true as well.
But in the end, for a business time is money. Being able to have an army of technical people motivated by real money supporting a product versus all us wonderful /. users telling them how they are doing it wrong in the world on Linux is what makes the world go round.
If You Think You Can Ignore IPv6, Think Again
How long until the classic IPV4 internet is looked upon with the likes of AOL or Compuserv? All the control, gatekeepers will force freedom to migrate to V6. It'll be the wild west of the internet all over again.
Carbon Trading Halted After EU Exchange Is Hacked
So, this is how I roughly understand the whole carbon credits thing is supposed to work. Am I right here? And does the real-world application work like this model, or is it rife with corruption, bureaucracy, and an inability to accomplish its stated goals like every other government project? Have their been any studies on the effectiveness of such a system?
The certification of carbon credits is taken very seriously and there are, according to the UNFCCC Parties & Observers, "Over 1,297 NGOs and 83 IGOs are admitted as observers." Further, carbon emissions especially from manufactures is fairly standard science. Fuel input + burn rate = carbon emission rate. The statistics are held not only on the scrubbers but the input valves as well. Also, it is reported by the fuel companies how much fuel they are selling and where it is being passed off. All this put together, along with thousands of NGO interests, allows the market to have enough watchdogs to prevent serious abuse.
The key to carbon credits in the US is that you need a verification and certification process behind the carbon creditors. Again, NGO and even government regulation can go a long way towards certifying and making the market more transparent.

Digging Into the WikiLeaks Cables
Another thought here is that the local populace would be up in arms if our state was secretly communicating or making deals with others without the voters knowledge. Transparency is very important to people on a local level is seems but make it national and it's, "oh I don't have time to worry or they know what they are doing." Put it in a local scene and people would be demanding resignation.
WikiLeaks Starts Mass Mirroring Effort
Not picking on you specifically, but pay pal is so shady they are like the godaddy of internet paying. The freeze was bound to happen.
WikiLeaks Starts Mass Mirroring Effort
You run the risk of the ones you do business with disassociating themselves with you. Perhaps a little FBI file will open up. Either way, until they find you doing something else wrong you are fine. Only those who are allowed access to classified documents can know what true classified documents are and only they can leak illegally obtain the documents. If documents are found on a street and someone finds them, it is not they who have broken the law but those who left the documents there. If they are given to you, it is not your fault but it of that person that gave them to you. IANAL but having wikileaks isn't going to end you up in court.
I saw a editorial cartoon today with santa looking at the computer, fuming. The caption said, "Wikileaks released his entire 'naught and nice' list..." R. MeKee.

AOL Spends $1M On Solid State Memory SAN
If you compare their IOPS price to a Fibre drive you will find that AOL got quite the bargain.
250,000 IOPS / 180 IOPS = 1388 10kRPM Fibre drives * $2,000 a pop - $1M = $1.7M savings.

The NSA announced today that they are offering secured online backup for all Blackberry users. RIMM responded saying they were surprised how quickly the DNS poison spread but wish the NSA well in their user friendly backup service. Many Middle East governments are also now offering the easy secure backup service as well.

The Coming Onslaught of iPad Competitors
The iPad and alike competitors should bet on business communication suites. One which has video conferencing, document presentation and sharing collaboration tools will be the most successful. I would like it if I could do an impromptu video conference meeting with anyone remotely as face to face interaction leads to better understanding and communication. Take the meeting collaboration space, have the pads chirp to each other forming a meeting share where they can present documents live and collaborate in the editing. Combine the video conference and meeting function together so remote operations are included just like person to person. You could make a remote desktop viewer that shares to everyone else. Give us a headphone and mic jack for privacy as well. Make a scrum board that has tasks that are passed seamlessly through the pads and updated live remote and interoffice. That is a sweet pad.
