I just looooove when the people being bashed in the comments come up defending their position! Thanks a lot for all the info griffey!

Researcher Finds Tor Exit Node Adding Malware To Downloads
Tor provides anonymity. It does not provide authenticity or secrecy, and doesn't pretend to.
Not only it doesn't provide these things, it potentially cripples then by adding a random computer as a Man In The Middle! What did you guys expect?
Also, seeing that people who usually perform activities of this type (spreading malware) should be the ones most interested in TOR, I see some signs as to the kind of organizations who would attempt to do this...
Samsung Acknowledges and Fixes Bug On 840 EVO SSDs
If you want to follow someone - pick Apple. Given the way news coverage is, if there's a problem with someone somewhere and their SSD in their Apple product, the whole world would know in a nanosecond. Someone as heavily scrutitinized as Apple (where even one failure in millions of computers sold would probably bring about SSD-gate) means if there is a real problem, you'd already know.
Don't be so sure about that. I and many others have had problems with the GPU soldering on 2011 Macbook Pros. This has been affecting lots of users since last year, and although there was some media coverage, I don't think it's gathering enough attention as you seem to imply it would.

Unbelievable. I went straight to walmart.com to verify your claim, and now I'm definitely amazed.
It's incredible how cheap these things have gotten.
Apple WWDC 2014: Tim Cook Unveils Yosemite
And FFS, this is the DEVELOPER conference. New product announcements here are few and far between. Here's an overview of the last ten years of WWDC. If you can read that list and still be surprised or disappointed at what was or wasn't announced today, you're an idiot.
Awesome page, thanks for the link!
Apple WWDC 2014: Tim Cook Unveils Yosemite
I was just thinking how much this remembers me of my Operating Systems classes in college, and then I saw your disclaimer:

Although studying it again now, it seemed much more interesting! Maybe my teacher wasn't very good...
Kids With Wheels: Should the Unlicensed Be Allowed To 'Drive' Autonomous Cars?
Is there a rock beneath the bag? You can't know. You can, however, guess there isn't and adjust your estimates about any future bags containing rocks should this one be harmless. That happens all the time, and is one of the numerous ways in which human rationality tends to break down.
You are giving computers and self driving cars way more power than they have in reality. A human could see the bag bouncing around in the road and make the decision, where the computer system would detect an obstacle and react differently.
And I think you are giving then way less power than they have in reality. Facebook already can detect faces better than we do.
Also, why are you assuming the computer system would react differently? Can't it learn (or be trained) to detect the bouncing bag to know there isn't a risk in this case?
I also think they could learn to do that better than humans too. We can get distracted, and only notice the bag on the last second, when it is laying still and formed just like it was over a rock. A computer system will be totally dedicated to paying attention to everything on the road, and wouldn't miss a single bounce of the bag, when it could reduce the risk factor of the bag enormously and then ignore it.
The human mind, contrary to your implication outperforms computers all the time.
Yes, it outperforms computers all the time, but less with each passing moment.
Do you believe in statistics? If autonomous cars injure and kill less people than human controlled cars, then what's the point of this kind of discussion?
Did Mozilla Have No Choice But To Add DRM To Firefox?
Yeah, my cousin told me that his friend had an aunt who dated a guy who told them that. So I wrote it in Wikipedia.
...sorry, I checked and saw that it has correct references (here by the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H...), but when I hear something like "wikipedia states", I can't help but think of something like that.

You should definitely make a blog post about this!
Facebook's Face Identification Project Is Accurate 97.25% of the Time
Facebook is, among many other things, the top photo sharing service on the web. And face recognition plays a very important role in this aspect. They must invest a lot in this kind of technologies, so it's no surprise skynet will be born from them.
This news was showing in a lot of sites lately, couldn't wait to see what discussions it would spark here! Let me grab my popcorn!
Flash Is Dead; Long Live OpenFL!
Flash is no more native than HTML5. At this point it doesn't make sense to "place bets" on Flash at all, unless like the article author you've spent many years on Flash and are not interested in change.
Flash can create a 'native' PC or OS X app (OK, it consists of a standalone Flash player bundled with your flash App, but the practical upshot is the same unless some strange permutation of misconceptions has led you to expect 'bare metal' efficiency from something like Flash).
You can also have this type of 'native' using HTML5 and Nodejs. By using this component called node-webkit.
Brazil Blocks Foreign Mobile Phones
Unfortunately, it's not so simple. Although the iPhone 5S is sold here, for example, the only certified Model is the A1457, as you can see in the this page, if you understand Portuguese.
It's a page from Anatel, the government agency responsible for cellphone communications in Brazil (something like FCC in the USA, I guess) which shows certified wireless communication devices for use in Brazil.
Wikipedia tells me there are at least 7 models of the iPhone 5S out there, so only one of these will work in Brazil, eventually. Unless Apple certifies all models with Anatel, which I doubt will happen.
Also, If you bring your shiny new cellphone shortly after launch, it probably won't work either, because the iPhone is released here with a few months delay, usually.
So, basically, fuck this shit.
