$30K Worth of Multimeters Must Be Destroyed Because They're Yellow

SmSlDoo Re:To be fair... (653 comments)

I have to agree with you there, it does look like a fluke.

China is the reason that laws like these exist, knock-offs are a huge business for them. If you can make a product that looks like a fluke people may buy it just because they expect it to be a fluke.

Chinese Court Fines Apple For Copyright Violations

SmSlDoo Re:So... (102 comments)

My guess is that it is a ploy by the Chineese government to force the works to be removed from the App Store.

If they requested directly to have the works removed they would get denied, but if they claim infringement towards the author they can get traction.

Iranians, Russians, and Chinese Hackers Are After You, Says Lawmaker

SmSlDoo Re:Oh noes... (211 comments)

My all time favorite catch was when we noticed one of the IPs in an attack was from Microsoft's corporate office.
Needless to say they were probably running IE.

SmSlDoo Re:Oh noes... (211 comments)

I agree, when I look in to spam on servers I do notice quite a bit coming from residential ISPs.

Hate to see what these computers are being used for that we are not seeing.

SmSlDoo Oh noes... (211 comments)

The real problem is normal users that do not really know what is happening on their computers and really do not care.
It always brings me back to images of windows users with 20 different toolbars loaded in to IE.
