At Last, Flying Cars?
I don't know about you, but I don't want a flying car generating lift with ducted airflow or jet engines. I want my flying car to be equipped with anti-"insert natural law here" devices. Just saying...
Blazing Fast Password Recovery With New ATI Cards
True, a simple brute force will take nearly forever. However, if you have a good large wordlist with say the top 10 million passwords, then you should be able to "recover" most passwords in much less than a day. Furthermore, if you wish to do a bruteforce method, I would suggest John the Ripper. It will pump out wordlists using frequency tables. Thus your more common passwords alphanumeric passwords will be tested before say *()3s3Ag+%&c. Useful since most induhviduals don't like to memorize random passwords.
And I didn't RTFA, but this slashvertisement sounds strikingly similar to say pyrit/aircrack-ng/jtr available on Backtrack.

Mozilla Rolls Out Firefox 3.6 RC, Nears Final
I haven't checked up on NoScript, but I'm currently using Chrome Beta with AdBlock. I haven't had a single problem with Chrome, unlike Firefox which comes bundled with features like memory leaks and countless crashes.
Malware Threat Reports Are "Apples and Oranges"
1) Antivirus solutions do not co-exist - and not just the resident portion. I'd love to run a second or 3rd scanner like I can for spyware but Antivirus vendors have created a market that is use to the worst kind of lock in. Why can't I run 3 different products side by side and decide which one's resident scanner I want switched on? I'm sure there are technical issue but I'm also sure they're not insurmountable.
I decided on one paranoid night to try to do just that. I found that for the most popular free solutions (AVG, Avast, Avira) you can install them side-by-side and narrowed it down to just one resident scanner running. You either have to find the hidden option in the menus, disable the start-up entries, or just opt not to install them during setup. I was able to safely ignore the warnings about having other AV products installed during the various setups.
An easy solution for individual files is VirusTotal. You can upload the file (less than 20MB) and have it scan it with ~39 different antivirus programs.
The most important thing to remember is that security is a process, and not a product. (If I remember that saying right... and I don't mean explorer.exe)
Full Body Scanners Violate Child Porn Laws
If your that worried about some TSA guards seeing a pseudo-image of your body, maybe you should hit the gym a little more often...
Full Body Scanners Violate Child Porn Laws
Let me know the outcome... actually try to tape it for me, because I want to have a good laugh when you try to place a police officer under citizen's arrest because you caught them speeding.
Kepler Finds Five More Exoplanets
We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. Maybe a little styrofoam. Maybe. A little styrofoam. The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance.

Google Chrome Displaces Safari As Third In Survey
I'm pretty sure that some induhviduals who go to "The Google" might notice the Google ad in the upper-right corner stating "A faster way to browse the web" with an installation button. Granted they might not know that Google Chrome is an alternate web browser to Internet Explorer, but these are the same people who click on all the pop-up ads and think they actually are the one millionth visitor. As far as they are concerned, it still brings them to the same Internet.

They haven't taken control of your information. They just took your ILLUSION of your control of your information.

The way I see people drive every day, I'd have thought that they have passed testing and moved onto production.

DIY Google Street View Project?
The most popular video cameras for motor sports seem to be the
ContourHD($300) and the
GoPro($200) cameras. Both are small, have good FOV, and decent (or excellent for the contourHD) resolution.
Apple Mac Mini 1TB Upgrade — Not Easy But Possible
In my opinion, I use my HDDs more than my DVD drive. I would suggest upgrading the drives in the Mini and getting an external DVD drive. That way, when you need it, you can plug it in and go. Of course, this is only a more favorable alternative if you hardly use your optical drive.

MS Says Windows 7 Will Run DirectX 10 On the CPU
Maybe so, but maybe M$ figured that instead of benchmarking a game where it might actually make a difference and then having all of /. ask "But can it run Crysis?", they decided to answer that question.
