Look Forward To Per-Service, Per-Page Fees
What if ISPs will do the same thing?
How Do You Manage the Information In Your Life?
It's very powerful once you get the concept.
Gene Simmons Threatens Anonymous Again and Gets DDoS'd
Weird. Don't they make most of their money by performing dozens of times a year, anyway?
I'd rephrase it: Don't they make enough money anyway?
If someone is that rich does it really matter if not everyone buys his records? Isn't the free publicity worth more than earning even more money?
Emacs users can find the relevant package here with screenshots and demonstration Youtube video.
High-Tech Research Moving From US To China
First of all China is robbing the West blind intellectually.
Well, in the past the West robbed China materially.
So it's not like a thief steals from an innocent, more like an aspiring thief stealing from an experienced one.
Code Bubbles — Rethinking the IDE's User Interface
I watched the video in 1080p and the text was pretty much unreadable. One would need either a huge screen or have to live with constant panning.
Is Mozilla Ubiquity Dead?
Bad for you. It's very useful for quick calculations, translations, map searches, etc. I find it most useful to add tasks effortlessly to my Google Calendar.
I suggest you to try it, because it's quite handy.
EU Committee Says No To Bank Data Sharing
This is a great thing. US has no fucking business to our banking data or any other thing.
Or at least if they want this data then obviously they must share all US banking data with us in the spirit of cooperation.
One sided data sharing is out of the question.
Microsoft Links Malware Rates To Pirated Windows
How about Service Pack 3? Does it contain WGA? If so then those who want to avoid WGA can't install SP3 at all, because it's one big bundle and you can't select individual components from it to install.
And SP3 is offered as a recommended security update by MS for SP2 users.
10/GUI — an Interface For Multi-Touch Input
How can you over-hype a one-paragraph summary?
Five minutes into the video and I'm still none the wiser as to how this is supposed to be an improvement in the use of my computer, or more comfortable, or easier.
In my opinion, it isn't.
Putting all my apps into a single line and navigating that line is not efficient. I'll stick to Autohotkey which allows me to jump to any of my usual apps with a single keypress.
I found eliminating the mouse as much as possible and finding convenient keyboard shortcuts is the key to efficient computer use. Using a touchpad which is just an other kind of mouse is not the solution. For computer newbies it may be, but not for seasoned users.
Cameron's Avatar Trailer Posted
Cartoon-like blue CGI aliens and an apparently average summer blockbuster story. Maybe it's better in 3D, but in 2D it's laughable.
Google Wave Reviewed
Probably only if you use a wave server operated by Google.
But this is acceptable, since they devote their own resources to run it. You can always run your own server if you don't like it.
Strong Passwords Not As Good As You Think
Sentences as passwords are only applicable in environments that allow such things.
You can use a long sentence and use only the first letter of words and the punctuation. That's what I do.
British Men Jailed For Online Hate Crimes
Also track down the "Anonymous" group for hate speech against Scientologists, etc.
Well, how about tracking down scientologists for hate speech against "Anonymous" then?
Online Attack Hits US Government Web Sites
Let's not. See what offends me about this whole thing is that it's so obivious. If they'd just targeted America, it could have been anyone. But 'whoever' it was had to go and hit South Korea too, at the same time. Who hates both the US and South Korea?
It could be the Martians.
uSocial Sells Twitter Followers By the Thousand
It's a total waste of money buying in
There are lots of narcistic people in the world and they may pay for all those fans who follow their precious self.
Professor Gets 4 Years in Prison for Sharing Drone Plans With Students
Should have been 40 years, idiot. Just bringing the laptop to China is shear stupidity.
Not really relevant. The data can be copied from it just as easily in the US.
Even the " prohibited from sharing sensitive data with foreign nationals" condition is a fluff, since a foreign nation can simply pay a US citizen to get the data.
NSA To Build 20-Acre Data Center In Utah
The secret service builds a datacenter and announces that in mainstream media?
It can be a ploy to divert public attention from other more important clandestine projects to this decoy.
Pirate Bay Announces Sale to Swedish Company For $7.8 Million
Personally I don't really approve of piracy because it hurts Open Source alternatives and wouldn't trust anything downloaded from PB to not have trojans on it these days.
AVIs of Lost episodes are trojan-free.
Wikipedia Censored To Protect Captive Reporter
They'd gladly blab about a kidnapping if it wasn't one of their own. It does, after all, sell newspapers.
True. There is lots of information in newspapers and Wikipedia in general which can get people in trouble. Why select one individual? Where do we draw the line on what should be supressed?
Maybe a committe should be set up to prescreen Wikipedia edits, so they don't harm anyone on the planet...
What the heck is this?
First entry or something.
