SOPA Makes Strange Bedfellows

jessiej Not surprising (439 comments)

158 Corporations and $21 Million shouldn't be a surprise. It's the status quo for US politics.

SOPA is just one of the many pieces of legislation being bought and paid for by corporations. So after you write your senators and representatives, go to http://movetoamend.org/ and sign the petition to end corporate personhood!

Email-only Providers?

jessiej Re:Yahoo! Mail (601 comments)

This is actually what I do. From my domain, all my email is automatically forwarded to my gmail account. Using gmail > settings > accounts, I've added the appropriate addresses and selected "Reply from the same address the message was sent to". It works wonderfully!

Is the Boeing 787 Hackable By Passengers?

jessiej jessiej writes  |  about 7 years ago

jessiej (1019654) writes "According to the BBC 'Boeing has been ordered to ensure passengers on its new 787 Dreamliner jet cannot hack into the flight system and take control of the plane.' Boeing claims their new line, shipping out in November, has 'appropriate safeguards'. The AP reports, however, that 'navigation and communications systems could be vulnerable.'"

They describe a system that moves away from a single textarea for editing wiki files to configurable multi field files that can be browsed directory style. Unfortunately, these features are only available to administrators so testing them out requires downloading and installing their software."

jessiej (1019654) writes "Even though CIGS, a newer type of solar panel, is less efficient than it's silicon counterpart, millions are being invested in manufacturing. Why? 'CIGS panels use far less raw material than silicon solar panels and the factories themselves cost less to build,' $25 million compared to $230 million. These types of panels could even be made into a t-shirt logo."
