Netflix Creates Qwikster For DVD Only Business
From a financial standpoint, this sounds like the Netflix business of streaming is trying to prevent the DVD business side from bankrupting it.
Wikileaks Reveals BitTorrent Lawsuit Background
THIS is what Wikileaks should be doing. Helping expose corrupt organizations that push government to act and pursue certain things.
Mac OS X Lion LDAP Vulnerability Emerges
LDAP if interfacing with AD can get you user credentials for domain admins, server admins, server name objects, login history with IP ranges, etc. Simply a user login can get you email access to anyone in the company and I am sure no matter what company you work for, your CEO would not be happy with their emails getting leaked.
Can You Really Be Traced From an IP Address?
Ya in theory you could translate the IP back to the area and the MAC possibly on their switch of the router to the customer device if they kept that detailed of records of what modems they sent out to each location however you still would not get past the problem that if 5 people are using a internet connection, you can't pin down which one actually did the downloading by IP address alone which in a normal legal system is not enough to convict. If it was a murder trial and you have your suspect down to 5 people, you wont get a conviction so it shouldn't be any different for electronic crime.
Man Pays $200,000 To Save Fake Online Girlfriend
I wish I had 200k to wire period.
What Would You Do With Open.org?
Email me. I will send you my Adsense code that you can fill it with for me.
Pirated App Sold On Mac App Store
I definitely give the person who put the pirated version on the app store an A for effort.
Stem Cell Research Running Into IP Brick Walls
ah yes. way to go American government. lets send another industry that could create jobs and money for the country elsewhere because of our ridiculous laws due to money backed lobbyists.
Russian Media Link Moscow Bombing With Modern Warfare 2 Scene
ive been playing violent video games for years. i not once have considered my self suddenly skilled at anything other than witty comebacks at 12 year olds for all the "training" i've done in games.
Jimmy Wales Declares App Store Models a Threat
i agree that app stores do bring a new level of control and threaten the openness of devices however it does provide a larger distribution center for smaller developers.
the ability to use another app store or source is a huge plus which is what android seems to have going for them. Cydia brought this to the iPhone but it will be nice to see the ability to turn on other app store abilities like you can on android.
FreeBSD Running On PS3
Yes, you could run BSD in the OtherOS feature but the benefit to this method is that there is access to the direct hardware such as the GPU which wasn't available before.
This is booting a true OS now instead of a OS inside the PlayStation OS.
Houston We Have a Problem
How entertaining would it have been if he fell off the ladder or something. A slightly weightless tumble down a ladder on international tv.
Thin Client, Or Fat Client? That Is the Question
Anytime I have seen them, the user requirement for a computer such as a call center was minimal or a organization with very little IT staff so it helped with having one person to manage the clients and if one broke, swap it out quickly.
The big plus of them is forcing what your users can access, knowing their work space is secure, and controlling what comes in and out of the organizations network since the workspace is in a container.
Ya they are easy to mange and simple but with most of the SSL VPN devices out there now offering a similar controled desktop cache, the need for them is getting smaller and smaller.
TSA Pats Down 3-Year-Old
I am so sick of these articles. The terrorist camps are using kids to carry explosives, weapons, etc. Just because a 3 year old is adorable and innocent in our western culture, to some terrorist groups its just a vehicle to transport a explosive device.
Seriously, let anyone who complains about being searched all fly on their own airplane with the rest of the people who don't want to be violated and let the rest of us be the normal flights. I hate this mentality that flying on an airplane suddenly is in the bill of rights next to freedom of speech. Its a privilege and if you don't want to be searched and have the government violate your privacy then drive yourself or walk
Stuxnet Was Designed To Subtly Interfere With Uranium Enrichment
Hey at least they still could get to Facebook and MySpace there.
Shadow Scholar Details Student Cheating
There is cheating in college?! No way. A lot of the papers including research and also computer science classes are full of cheating. People would pay $100 a project that took you maybe 2 hours if you knew what you are doing and near$1,000 for research papers.
Its become a pretty marketable business and there is a lot of sites that have always taken advantage of it. It will always win too since the work people are doing for paying "client" is submitted to the person and not posted online to get caught by plagiarism crawlers.
Aerial Drone To Hunt For Life On Mars
With all the drones and rovers we have sent there, I fell like something would have shown up and wondered WTF that silver thing thats driving around is.
Intelligent life is random in the galaxy based on a lot of theories. I personally think we should stick to that and come up with ways to find resources we can harvest on other planets then trying to build a Moon or Marse base. Bringing back massive ships of minerals and compounds from the moon, mars and other nearby planets is a lot closer than the idea of surviving millions of miles from Earth.
1928 Time Traveler Caught On Film?
It is pretty wild to see but come on, if she was really talking on a cell phone/satellite phone:
a) was there capable towers and satellites at that time to even communicate with
b) why isn't no one freaking out that some lady is talking on a "future device"
It was probably a two way radio or other device. Most of that stuff was around in the early 1920's.
Are Games Getting Easier?
I think they aim the game for the more general public. Games are getting more mainstream than ever so there is the line to stay on that keeps the casual gamer into your game and the hardcore gamer motivated. MW2 and Halo have done a good job with the multiplayer to keep the game fun along with adding the special ops part as something different but if a game wants to be big in the large public, its gotta have more of a store line and fun factor than complexity IMO.
Obama Wants Broader Internet Wiretap Authority
Exactly. This and also net neutrality are why we need to get more younger voters out there and voting against this crap. The large voter base thats above the tech generation just sees "anti-terrorist" and thinks they are doing the country a favor by voting for this garbage.
