In Canada here they do the same thing so it would really be nice to have this posted.

We do this in Canada?
Please, show me!

Aussie Researcher Cracks OS X Lion Passwords

do0b Re:While it's possible... (165 comments)

I can get dsAttrTypeNative:ShadowHashData results for any local accounts on 10.7.1 using a regular user.
Good to know it's already been patched in 10.7.2.
Now if it could just be available to the general public.

Lodsys Responds To In-App Purchasing Patent Controversy

do0b Re:So (158 comments)

I wouldn't think Apple, Google and Microsoft agreed to such a percentage. A flat fee, maybe. More like grant us a license or we'll find a way to litigate you to the ground.

Phones aren't special.

do0b Re:Lies. (353 comments)

No it doesn't auto-update.
Not on a mac. The adobe download offers an uninstaller, but does not offer an auto-updater.

Are Consumer Hard Drives Headed Into History?

do0b Re:The MacBook Air is a poor example to choose her (681 comments)

No the flash modules are not soldered to the logic board.
See this
The flash module uses a mini pci-e connector like the wireless module right above it. While it might require an Apple module at the moment, it is serviceable.

Microsoft To Charge Phone Makers a Licensing Fee

do0b Re:On the desktop, perhaps (225 comments)

Using Subsystems for Unix Applications gets you a nice csh and ksh combo with vi, grep and an outdated gcc.
It feels weird to edit files in /dev/fs/c/windows/ but it's doable.
You can compile the necessary stuff to do grep ERROR logfile | mail -s "to_address" in a few minutes.
(Why yes, I hate myself a little for this comment)

Android Software Piracy Rampant

do0b Re:Numbers need a reference scale (510 comments)

Pirates usually aren't technically minded individuals. It may be hard to break the copy protection. But once it is figured out, it's really too easy to duplicate. In this case, I'm really curious to see how they get their numbers. I mean from TFA and the company's website why would the app need network access? Aren't Android app updates managed by the Android store?

do0b Re:It's probably (381 comments)

Remote wiping is already available for the iPhone. I was hoping this patent would include a way to remotely "brick" the phone when reported stolen.

do0b Re:A new low (381 comments)

If it's for their own usage then you're entirely correct.
If they place such tools under the control of the end user then they really are onto something!

This brings the cost per song to $2,250."
