Adobe Hacked: Almost 3 Million Accounts Compromised
At the beginning of August I purchased the latest version of Adobe Premier using a Credit card as this is the ONLY way you can do this - monthly payments require a credit card. Since this is a company purchase I used the company card, this card had never been used before for Internet transactions. I have a special card for this but because this is a monthly purchase I did not want to transfer money every month into the "special" credit card.
On the 20.08.2013 the credit card was debited by a person called "NOVAPOKEREW" through a PAYPAL account. I rang paypal and after a lengthy conversation (on and off for 3 hours) and being handed from person to person they acknowledged this was fraudulent and have no problem giving the money back to me (thank you PAYPAL).
What gives me the shits is that Adobe is lying because I have seen many people saying their credit card has been debited somewhere at the end of August - Adobe you are lying!!!!
To add insult to injury when you try to reset your password you end up in an endless loop of resetting your password again and again - this too has been the experience of MANY other people (just search for Adobe Hacked and start reading).
While I like your products ADOBE, you suck at security and customer service as well giving the incorrect information about an event.
This is not about being hacked, it can happen to anyone - but leaving your customers in the dark - well if there would be another product like Indesign ot Premier - I would NOT be using Adobe anymore, that's for sure
Windows 8 Killing PC Sales
While I understand where you are coming from ... one of our people @ work bought a Sony with an I7, SSD and touch - I actually replaced my Linux laptop and got myself a Dell XPS12 (i7,ssd,8gb ram) - it is fast (boot time 10s or so), the touch screen really works and getting a couple of add-ons (e.g. classic start menu and putty) makes Windows 8 useable - and looking up "things (i.e. google, mail, addresses etc)" on the computer from off to reading the info is a delight - so there is something worthwhile upgrading for.
Are Plastic Bag Bans Making People Sick?
Who paid for the survey - a plastic bag manufacturer? I have been using cloth based bags for many years - sometimes they do not get washed for weeks/months ... When I go bread shopping at the bakery the bread goes in there without other bags - then at the green grocer we put the stuff straight into as well. No one in our family has been ill for many, many years.

Why IT Needs To Change for Gen Z
" .... CIOs should buckle up and brace themselves for a future .... "
Brace alright ... the onslaught of costs to defend your systems, viruses/troyans/malware interrupting work-flow, costs of looking after people cause they cant connect although you have given them a fool proof set of instructions, stealing of IP ... you name it its all there for the taking.
I have a wifi, but that sits in front of the firewall (as in the internet site) so they can connect there laptops but they need to use the VPN and the phones can use it too.

Years-Old Conficker Worm Still a Threat
One of my doggies was running around like crazy on XMAS day, rubbing her bum along the floor ... licking her bum like mad ... so I checked it out ... pulled up her tail and there it was 5cm of worm sticking out ... ran to the toilet, picked up a toilet and 20s of pulling later I had a 35cm worm lying on the floor boards ... Moral of the story: Dogs need virus/worm protection too and the next day there were two tablets going down her throat.
Years-Old Conficker Worm Still a Threat
of course it still a problem, especially if you read what happened to me this morning....
Our sales directors computer (dell) has real trouble accessing the net (very very slow) whenever he tethers his laptop with his Galaxy S. I have the same laptop and phone but use Fedora14 and tethering gives me real good speed (considering) .... his is Win7 using Trend Micro (included when buying the dell) . When I turn Trend Micro off it performs well, loads the web-pages at the same speed as mine does.
So there would be no surprise to me if a lot of machine run without virus/internet security because those machine become a real hog/snail/whatever .... so users cant be bothered!

Living Earth Simulator Aims To Simulate Everything
Things that came to mind:
1. It will show us what a lot of us already know, we're fucking up the place.
2. It would be more sufficient to actually do sth. about stopping stuffing up the place instead of thinking about stopping the stuffing up and collecting data about what we are actually stuffing up so we can stop stuffing up the place.
3. make a cup of tea and have a minced pie, after all its xmas.
