BlackBerry TIFF Vulnerability Could Allow Access To Enterprise Server

ilovepi Re:TIFF with Malware? (41 comments)

I don't know the means by which this particular attack is delivered. However, I know that the "unhackable" versions of Sony's PSP systems were finally hacked by a payloaded .TIFF file. I'd imagine there are some similarities, so you might want to look up how that hack worked.

Valve Begins Listing Linux Requirements For Certain Games On Steam

ilovepi Re:Why would you want to game on Linux (332 comments)

So if you want to do both unixy world and games why not Mac?.

1) Some people like Linux more than either of the proprietary OSes. This might be because they can configure Linux more, or because it's free, or because it's ideologically free, or because their friend told them to run it, or any of a thousand other reasons.

2) Why not? Many indie developers have already made Linux-compatible games that are also on steam. For instance, most of the Humble Indie bundles have had a requirement of running on Linux, and most of those games also provided steam keys.

3) Other people aren't a Apple shills/trolls?

A Copyright Nightmare

ilovepi Re:How is it different from a play? (411 comments)

Photographs should be protected so long as the photographer used flash, since at least some of the reflected light originates from the photographers camera.

Additionally, photos which have been developed (and thus use pigments or chemicals to be produced) can be copyrightable. Photos that have been digitally retouched (and thus no longer use that natural lighting) should be copyrighted as well.

Latest Humble Bundle Comes With Uplink Source Code

ilovepi The License (96 comments)

While it's definitely cool that the Bundle now comes with the code for these game, make sure you read the license for publication of any finished product; while it's understandable that Introversion would want people to pay for the software, the license requires that a developer contact Introversion if they make a port, and they don't allow porting to a multitude of consumer devices (anything nintendo, sony, or microsoft makes) even if the end-user is required to buy the media required to play the game (such that they would need to purchase the full PC version.) So keep this in mind before making a PSP version (like someone did with the Aquaria source released in the first Humble Bundle.) As a modding platform and possibly as a learning tool, providing the source is very nice of Introversion. So, for the most part, kudos to them.

Some Early Adopters Stung By Ubuntu's Karmic Koala

ilovepi Ubiquity Crashed During Install (1231 comments)

Nearing the end of the install on my laptop ubiquity crashed, this happened on each of three attempts. There had already been a bug filed on the beta and someone had found that apt-get removing ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu before running the install off the live CD solved that problem. Since that the only issues I've had have simply been me messing with the wrong files, these are easily fixed. All in all it's a pretty sleek operating system.

Is Flash Really On 99% of Net Devices?

ilovepi Flash PSP (383 comments)

They should get some REAL flash on the PSP. The newest firmware only supports flash 6. So yes, it has flash, but the only content available is some flash games. 'Till then I'll just have to kick my brother off my computer every time I wanna watch someone jump out their second story window.

Wireless Invention Jams Teen Drivers' Cell Calls

ilovepi Turn bluetooth off??? (232 comments)

I'm thinking just turn off the bluetooth. I'm a teen (soon to be driving) and although I wouldn't use my cell in the car anyways (I'm in California, it's law) I'm sure I or any of my friends could bypass this device. Also, I'm guessing to program a number into the key you'll have a USB cable and some software (that would be the smart way to do it). I'll install the stuff on my computer and enter all my friend's numbers, my parents won't find out unless they're calling my friends from the car.
