Bitcoin Inventor Satoshi Nakamoto Outed By Newsweek
Allowed to write books pretty much in peace for 50 years?

I'll get the blankets! Let's kill some kids!
Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?
How do you propose to detect people sending out proprietary information such as documents obtained via NDAs from other companies, personal information, credit cards etc if you can't monitor outgoing traffic? You're going to trust people, right? If someone is upset that their surfing/facebook etc usage on company time is being monitored so there's less of a chance I'm going to be the victim of fraud, identity theft etc then they need to get another job, or surf on their phone, or something.
One In Ten Americans Thinks HTML Is a Type of Sexually Transmitted Infection
It's like Chinese Whispers ("Telephone" in the US) where *everybody* deliberately messes up the message on purpose!
Android Beats iOS As the Top Tablet OS
> All sort of white-label chinese makers? Who is buying these?
Millions of Chinese, Thai, Indian, African people.
> And can you say
> that these are truly Android tablets if they have some sort of modified android 2.3?
I'm running modified Android 4.2.2 - Cyanogenmod - on my phone. So, yes, I'm running and developing Android on it.
India Plans Mission To Probe Sun By 2020
India has more than a `homeless` problem; I don't see how you can equate the two, unless you're rather willfully ignoring the massive problems India is turning its back on to fund these `we're in the space-age club too` extravagances.
India Plans Mission To Probe Sun By 2020
Chances are that he's not from a country which sentences people to gang-rape:
Sure, it's a cultural thing; best not interfere or comment, right?
Girl's Facebook Post Costs Her Dad $80,000

And then probably twice.
Using Google Maps To Intercept FBI and Secret Service Calls
about Google Maps? Is he going to pull the same stunt with fake listings on other sites/apps, local newspapers, shops, etc? And will he then repeat the process with the local police, hospitals, schools, shops etc etc? Where does it end?
Spooks-as-a-Service Swarm RSA Conference
No-one's ever going to trust the NS..sorry, RSA again - might as well big-up the whole "we're in it together" thing while it lasts.
Lawrence Lessig Wins Fair Use Case
Exactly - secret settlements = not a clear win and he was partly wrong. Hopefully there'll be some clarification here, otherwise what has it proved?
Github Rolls Out New Text Editor Atom
Man you do NOT want to be rushing into signing up for emails. That shit's like having kids.

Which we'd all of course believe.
Interview: Ask Richard Stallman What You Will

Who pays journalists who write for free newspapers?

One of them. Who cares? The guy you're replying to writes free software (which anyone can copy) for a customer (or customers) who need(s) it.
You're looking at it the wrong with with all competitors and everything. Sure, most companies won't want you to do that, but then again, some companies don't like you even using free software, let alone writing it. If you write free software there's a good chance you'll be using free software with licenses which force you to release your code anyway; the guy paying for the software will know this and - unless you believe the OP is lying - is totally cool with it.
Apple Urges Arizona Governor To Veto Anti-Gay Legislation
now gays. Can't Americans just stop acting like utter fucking cunts for a few moments and work on their hatred? I'm guessing it's religious in nature; after all, religious texts are full of specious, homophobic nonsense. Thank fuck that shit is on the way out.
How Mobile Apps Are Reinventing the Worst of the Software Industry
I've never suffered from the permissions required by any Android app. Should I be worried? Worried an app might read my phone book and know my friends/colleagues email addresses? And then what? Email them! A HA! We have some more email addresses!! Oh, and phone numbers. Handy - now they'll get phone calls from..who, exactly? App developers? They'll know my location? Fine - add `random, evil ad company` to the long list of people who know my location.
If you don't want to run the risk of - worst case scenario - people knowing your colleagues' email addresses, then I suggest you read the permissions required of an app and not install it if it can read your contacts. It's still possible to buy dumbphones if you don't want a smartphone.
Not heard from Atwood for a while, though. Has he done another amusing `compare mp3 codecs by using pirated copies of fuck-awful 80's music` article recently?
Paraguayan ccTLD Hacked, Google.com.py Redirected, Internal Database Leaked
You mean this February then. That was last week, not last year, therefore its misleading to say "last February".
Nostalgic For the ZX Spectrum? Soon You Can Play With a New One
The keyboard where the keys fell out if you turned it upside down? That device was a joke, and in no way ahead of its time.
Gmail's 'Unsubscribe' Tool Comes Out of the Weeds
Is it just another link to the unsubscribe link already in the email? In which case, I probably won't want to click it, for the usual reasons (instead clicking on Delete or, more likely, Spam).
If Google is letting you unsubscribe from email lists/spam etc which don't have an unsubscribe option, by acknowledging your click of their unsubscribe button, and then treating further emails from that sender as having been unsubscribed from by simply dropping them (or sending back an unsubscribe request without the users getting involved) then it's a little more cool.
Ubuntu 14.04 Brings Back Menus In Application Windows
Only making changes if they're an improvement is fine, but making a bad mistake and stick with it? Why would anyone want to do that?
