Escalating Gmail/Spamming Attacks

RootWind Re:Happened to one my accounts as well (139 comments)

This is what was in the details before I changed the password last week:
Mobile Algeria ( Apr 14 (6 days ago)
Mobile Serbia ( Apr 14 (6 days ago)
Mobile Saudi Arabia ( Apr 9
Mobile United States (TX) ( Apr 7

From people describing that they see Texas and Serbia activity. It sounds almost like it's all the same "entity"?

Escalating Gmail/Spamming Attacks

RootWind Happened to one my accounts as well (139 comments)

This happened to a gmail account that I use specifically just to auto-forward e-mails. I never log-in to it since all it does is forward, and it had a pretty secure password. I would imagine a spammer wouldn't just brute-force random accounts?

Obama To Launch Website For Tracking Tax Expenditures

RootWind Re:It freaks me out... (358 comments)

You might want to revisit that story. Somewhere a long the way, the Obama administration putting a stay on all pending cases (including wiretapping) somehow means he "supports" warrantless wiretapping. You might notice Obama has yet to get his Attorney General pick confirmed. So Obama has yet to actually support warrantless wiretapping. Whether he will or will not will be a story for another day.

Palm Announces Killer New Phone

RootWind Looks like it is Launch Exclusive (617 comments)

Looks like Sprint only has a launch exclusive, so you can be sure the Verizon and U.S. GSM iterations will soon follow a few months after.

Obama Moves To Link Pentagon With NASA

RootWind Discuss/Consider = Action? (491 comments)

I'm not entirely sure whether Obama will actually pursue this, but I notice a trend going on. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like every time any idea is discussed, the press seems to make the assumption that the Obama administration is actually going to pursue it (and unmodified). Are they just not use to the idea of actual discussion about choices?

Net Neutrality Opponent Calls Google a "Bandwidth Hog"

RootWind Maybe Google should start charging them (320 comments)

Google is a content provider after all, maybe they should start charging AT&T. People pay to connect to the internet for the content, not to say they can connect to the AT&T network.

Barack Obama Wins US Presidency

RootWind Back to when intelligence matters... (3709 comments)

This was what it came down to for me. I didn't quite agree with everything Obama was proposing, but it came down to the strive for knowledge. It seemed at every turn the Republicans seemed so proud of their own ignorance. Higher education made you an "elitist." Sure, McCain may not necessarily have been one of them, but he surrounded himself with them (Palin is a great example), and it is the people that make up your administration that really point the direction of the country.

RootWind (993172) writes "Two months after the initial finding of the "volume keys" by muslix64, Engadget reports that arnezami also of Doom9 forums has discovered the "processing keys." This discovery allows the full unlocking, decryption, and backup of all currently released HD-DVD and Blu-ray movies (at least AACS-wise), instead of decrypting each individually through "volume keys." It seems the DRM arms battle is in full swing."
