Amazon's Echo: a $200, Multi-Function, Audio-Centric Device

uCallHimDrJ0NES Plays Fruit Ninja as well as the Kinect (129 comments)

You just shout "SLICE! CHOP! SLICE!" at it and it makes fruit slicing noises and tells you afterwards how well you did. When you're not using it, it quietly keeps a compressed log of human presence information and keyword flags that get sent to Amazon's supercustomers. Just like the Kinect, but no Xbox required. Awesome innovation.

LibraryBox is an Open Source Server That Runs on Low-Cost Hardware (Video)

uCallHimDrJ0NES Gadget users who think they are nerds... (47 comments)

...are gradually replacing computer operators, even on communities like Slashdot, because time and aging and dying and stuff. Those gadget users who don't understand GPOS's and don't want to...they want stuff like this. To me, it looks like a waste of time, but maybe they'll make some money. Not with my help, though.

Signed-In Maps Mean More Location Data For Google

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:I can't speak for others, obviously (39 comments)

The advantage is that all of the Google maps-based map pages you see embedded at various sites will now be configured the same way, and any pins you've stuck in or any other notes you've made will now be consistent across sites. The disadvantage is that now sites don't have a means of utilizing a Google map without their customers being tracked by Google.

Signed-In Maps Mean More Location Data For Google

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:If people don't want Google to have their info (39 comments)

They haven't been signed in to Google. This change will force users of pages that utilize Google maps to auth to Google in order to display the result.

Four Charged With Stealing Army Helicopter Training Software

uCallHimDrJ0NES This is a serious breach. (46 comments)

Since Xbox Live and all siloed online gaming is a means by which we are tracking the gifted and talented drone pilots and Dalek operators of the future, this is a mission-critical breach. We need to get computers out of the hands of these hacker terrorists, or else parents might get wise.

It's Banned Books Week; I recommend ...

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Why is 1984 in this poll? (410 comments)

Publishers revoking editions ebooks isn't a ban. It's stupid, irritating, and a great example of why I am against DRM, but it's not a ban.

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:I'll wager (410 comments)

Your interpretation of Ingsoc's jealousy is light. Sex is very important. Love is more important. 1984 is not a pro- or anti-theistic work. You do the work's message a disservice when you attempt to use it for a tangentially related polemic in this way. I would hate to see a theistic person's desire to read 1984 discouraged by an inaccurate representation that the work is atheist in its message.

Great comment. I love 1984, but I'm tired of hearing how it's banned. I've never seen it banned.

Where the heck is the anarchists cookbook? I remember mail-ordering it in high-school and then promptly setting our shed on fire.

Are the two events related? :)

I think HDM is an international mega-hit, and "banning" by Catholic schools was a godsend to the publishers. Yeah, I said godsend. I crack myself up. You guys know how baited protest marketing works, right?

They Might Be Giants "Dial-a-Song" returns online.

uCallHimDrJ0NES uCallHimDrJ0NES writes  |  about 2 months ago

uCallHimDrJ0NES (2546640) writes "Why is the world in love again? TMBG's website announced the return of the nerd music favorite "Dial-a-song" service as a website. The plan is apparently a new song every week. The original PSTN-based Dial-a-Song service, which ran on an old-school answering machine, was a staple of nerd culture for years. Remember, those giants don't want to rule the world. They just want your half."

NTLM 100 Percent Broken Using Hashes Derived from Captures

uCallHimDrJ0NES uCallHimDrJ0NES writes  |  about 2 years ago

uCallHimDrJ0NES (2546640) writes "Security researcher Mark Gamache has used Moxie Marlinspike's Cloudcracker to derive hashes from captured NTLM handshakes, resulting in successful pass-the-hash attacks. It's been going on for a long time, probably, but this is the first time a "white hat" has researched and exposed the how-to details for us all to enjoy. Microsoft has posted a little guidance for those who need to turn off NTLM: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2793313. Have fun explaining your new security project to your management, server admins!"
