JooJoo Tablet Dies, Fusion Garage Continues On

valeo.de Re:so sad (91 comments)

You know you really are full of shite. Stop talking about Java and Android as if you're some kind of expert; you're far away from such an esteemed title. Scathing insult sent from my Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Making Ubuntu Look Like Windows 7

valeo.de Who else is disappointed? (473 comments)

Am I the only one who was disappointed upon visiting the linked "story" only to find a desktop that doesn't look anything like Windows 7? Windows 7 doesn't (by default) use dark UI elements, there's no transparency for the task/menu bar, I could go on... I use Windows way more that I'd like, alas, and to me that just looks like Gnome with an (admittedly quite nice) gtk-engine theme.

Slow news day?

Lexmark Sues 24 Companies Over Toner-Cartridge Patents

valeo.de Re:Formulas? (294 comments)

Everyone? I agree (in spirit), but if everyone gets a license to use such patents, then companies like, for example, Apple or Microsoft or Oracle would get (pooled?) open source patents for free whilst still being able to use their own patent portfolios to do harm. Which is like the worst of both worlds... or something.

If there were more posts like this on Slashdot, I'd come here not just when I'm bored senseless and looking to kill time before bed. ;)

Samsung Galaxy Tablet Coming In September

valeo.de Re:Possible GPS navigation? (202 comments)

I was quite surprised actually, the GPS on my Galaxy S seems to be pretty accurate (to about 5-10m). Seems like myself and a few others were the lucky ones judging by all the reports I've seen of the GPS being duff. Makes me wonder if it'll get worse if I update to the latest firmware...

Legal Analysis of Oracle v. Google

valeo.de Re:Yet again (206 comments)

For the love of all things pure, please learn to use more punctuation! You make a somewhat valid, or rather interesting point, but 90+ words without a single comma is really taking the piss...

40 Windows Apps Said To Contain Critical Bug

valeo.de Re:how can we trust (158 comments)

Probably because this particular security researcher wants to make a name for themselves. ;)

Peronally I prefer full-disclosure (or worst case, so-called "responsible" disclosure) and don't see the value in these kind of pre-announcements, especially when the attack vector is known as is the case here. All it does is send an even clearer signal to enterprising crackers that they should be looking at popular applications to see if they are vulnerable to this exploit, which doesn't exactly help security.

Root Privileges Through Linux Kernel Bug

valeo.de Re:Nothing to see here.... (131 comments)

Apparently the patch that Andrea Arcangeli submitted back in 2004 was deemed too ugly for inclusion. I've not been able to find an authoritative source on this though, so by all means take this with heaps of salt.

Root Privileges Through Linux Kernel Bug

valeo.de Re:Long live to SUSE??? (131 comments)

No, just that this particular bug has been patched in SUSE for six years, while mainline has only just gotten the fix.

40 Windows Apps Said To Contain Critical Bug

valeo.de Re:And I care about this why? (158 comments)

Generalise much?

If I could run Linux full time, I'd do so without hesitation. Alas, the state of audio in Linux means I have to spend way more time than I'd like in Windows... stupidity really doesn't come into it.

40 Windows Apps Said To Contain Critical Bug

valeo.de Re:how can we trust (158 comments)

Perhaps this guy is giving the companies that develop these applications adequate time to patch them, before telling the world which ones are vulnerable? It's not like it'd be the first time where something like this has happened.

Linux X.org Critical Security Flaw Silently Patched

valeo.de Re:This is why I *ONLY* use OS X (259 comments)

Yes, OS X is more secure. Oh, and Apple doesn't have a fucking atrocious security track record. And that PDF-based 'root my iPhone/iPad in a single click' didn't exist either...
