Bitcoin Exchange Flexcoin Wiped Out By Theft

Yim Sinking ship (704 comments)

How long till bitcoins become illegal tender? I wonder if these coins are being moved around to another exchange, liquidated, and move on to the next one to rob. This is happening way too frequently, and since there isn't any enforcement tied to it, there will be no recourse for these exchanges. Sitting ducks, anyone?

Microsoft Counts Down To XP Death

Yim Good (766 comments)

I can see that the camp that develops Windows Phone OS is going to progressively overtake and meld with the software developers of Windows 7. Apple is following that model with iOS becoming integrated with Lion. Just a matter of time before tablet-like computers replace the traditional setup, especially at the office, where terminal style application access could be implemented. However, XP is going to stick around, whether MS likes it or not. It's paid for, business owners are cheap, and most of their software for day-to-day runs just fine with it. When there are more SaaS options and apps for mobile devices that supersede the need for an XP machine running a bunch of local apps, then XP will be supplanted.

Apple Announces New MacBook, Pro, Air

Yim Where's the big boy? (774 comments)

Where's the 17" mammoth? They can't extrude the aluminum slab that big? That's Apple's showpiece, and I'm really surprised it didn't make the cut. Does anyone know the scoop?
