Hack an Oscilloscope, Get a DMCA Take-Down Notice From Tektronix

frootcakeuk Perhaps they can ask Google to forget that page? (273 comments)

No need when HAD instantly back down and alter the content of the page.

Also, for it to be a DCMA, doesn't the requested takedown have to have something to do with DRM?

Yes it obviously was! As I said above, thanks for clarifying that for me. It wasn't entirely clear to me in the summary. Perhaps I shall read a little more into it.

Fuel Cells From Nanomaterials Made From Human Urine

frootcakeuk Energy density? (83 comments)

So the material is made porous by heating and removing salt particles. Nice! There can't be much material left after drying though, I'm curious how much the energy density of said yield would be. I did spin through the paper, I noticed the 300-400mg/L yield but not the energy density, did anyone else catch it amongst the jargon?

A Bike Taillight that Goes Beyond Mere Taillighting (Video)

frootcakeuk Road Legal? (86 comments)

I'm pretty sure the legality of this in use on the road using animations or any colour other than red is questionable at best.

Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

frootcakeuk Re:Why???? (2219 comments)

Why??? Why do you have to cut off support? If it costs nothing to maintain (in the grand scheme of things i imagine this is close to that) then why does it have to be cut off? It needs no maintenance, it needs nothing! So, please give us ONE good reason. WHY???

Is the Porsche Carrera GT Too Dangerous?

Like what exactly? They don't have anti-lock or traction control. Yes they have KERS & DRS but that isn't an aid at all. Care to clarify?

Atlanta Man Shatters Coast-to-Coast Driving Record, Averaging 98MPH

frootcakeuk Re:As good as it gets? (666 comments)

Not that I disagree with you, but where did you read that it was directly modelled on the Autobahn?

I found this in wiki.

"Eisenhower gained an appreciation of the Reichsautobahn system, the first "national" implementation of modern Germany's Autobahn network as a necessary component of a national defense system while he was serving as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II.[9] He recognized that the proposed system would also provide key ground transport routes for military supplies and troop deployments in case of an emergency or foreign invasion."

Nothing in there says that anything to do with the Federal Insterstate system was modelled on the Autobahn, simply that it was recognised as a good thing by Eisenhower. This would indicate that the Interstate system, on which everyone drives in the right, has absolutely nothing to do with the Autobahn, on which everyone drives on the left.

Apple Freely Releases iPhone 5S Fingerprint Data

frootcakeuk frootcakeuk writes  |  about a year ago

frootcakeuk (638517) writes "According to Nationalreport.net, all iPhone 5S fingerprint data will be shared with NSA.

FTA:

"Apple’s official spokespeople have maintained a vague stance on the potential of sharing their fingerprint database with the NSA. "

"“Absolutely the databases will be merged. This whole ‘fingerprint scan’ idea originated from someone in our Government. They just didn’t expect to be outed by Snowden, you know.” Said Tim Richardson, District Manager of Apple’s North America Marketing Department. He went onto explain that the NSA and FBI have been compiling a special database for over a year now to use with the new Apple technology. Fingerprints from all over the nation. Cold cases. Fugitives of the law. Missing persons.""
