After all, if what amounts to a few script-kiddies can get this deep into confidential material, how much more material can a determined, knowledgeable, and well-funded adversary get?

HP Gives Printers Email Addresses

TravTrav wow, this is brilliant (325 comments)

although I think they're not seeing the paper for the print.... if they really want to capitalize on cartridge replacement, they should make printers that print both the text, and the page; kind of like 3d printers. They could market it as 'earth-friendly' while driving the cost (and profit margin) of each page up exponentially. Of course, if I had a printer like this, I'd be printing 20's and 100's...

Font Foundries Opening Up To the Web

TravTrav The real winners here are (209 comments)

the disabled. One of the best reasons for using web-fonts is the corresponding removal of text content from images, which were done to work around the lack of good web fonts. Search engines will also be a bit more accurate, so in a sense everybody wins.

Steve Jobs Publishes Some "Thoughts On Flash"

TravTrav I'm still not getting this 'buggy' claim (944 comments)

I don't use a mac all the time, but on the other hand, I can't think of a single instance in which Flash caused my browser or the machine to crash. Somebody else posted that they've looked at crash reports in Safari and discovered that they were all from flash plugin which may be true, but I've certainly never had that experience on a mac, and absolutely not on a pc. If that is the case, then how is that solely the fault of Flash plugin, when flash plugin works perfectly fine on other macs? When you take into account the recent change on their App store developers agreement, the hypocrisy in this press release reaches a staggering new level.

Google: what if we sit over here...

TravTrav (1236742) writes "From the article: Google Inc. will shift its search engine for China off the mainland but won't shut it down altogether, and it will maintain other operations in the country. It's an attempt to balance its stance against censorship with its desire to profit from an explosively growing Internet market

S.F. judge dissolves his Wikileaks injunction

TravTrav TravTrav writes  |  more than 6 years ago

TravTrav writes "WikiLeaks Returns: more from SF Chronicle
A federal judge in San Francisco who had ordered the shutdown of a whistle-blowers' Web site where private bank documents were posted changed his mind Friday, conceding his original ruling might not have been constitutional.
Such decrees raise "serious questions of prior restraint (on speech) and possible violations of the First Amendment," White said. He also said federal courts may lack jurisdiction over the case because the bank has failed to show that Wikileaks, or anyone responsible for its operations, is based in the United States."
