New Flash vuln exploited (again). Adobe posts emergency fix (again)

Re: whitelist

It wouldn't help that much. It would only serve to force attackers into targeting legit domains.

Malware! tainted! ads! infect! thousands! of! Yahoo! users!

kororas

This is one reason why I've been blocking ads, since forever. Probably quite hard to achieve this attack vector, but once you have it, your audience (read victims) is massive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Once, twice, three times - a Very Large Phone™

kororas

Re: It's inevitable...

The other difference is the stylus in the Note 3 is has some feature where you don't need to make conact with the screen for the device to know its there. When the pen is 2-3mm away from the screen the device shows a dot directly underneath the stylus on the screen. Useful for hovering functions and all sorts of other things.

Its certainly not your typical dumb stylus.

PS: I've had this device for a week now. Its great.

What Compsci textbooks don't tell you: Real world code sucks

kororas
Thumb Up

I actually find myself in your position. These days im doing a mixture of technologies for a small business, I have always counted myself lucky and your statement has reaffimed it.

When I started my code wasn't great but my ethic was. My techniques have improved a lot of the period of employment and crucially I have been allowed the flexibility to bring old code I have developed up to my current standard on many occasions.

I think it allows for a great improvement to personal skills and comprehension, when looking over and improving old code.

Re: Bestest Religion Ever

Probably because you represent a 'missed opportunity' on the part of some of these religious nuts. If you arn't with them, your against them, in their opinion.

I'm suprised at Adobe to be honest. most companies would flog that dead horse (note: its not a dead horse just yet) into the ground but it seems they are looking to the future with a more unified web platform. Scary stuff.

Whilst i believe bioware will do well with the franchise I also think they are shooting themselves in the feet with this move. Enthusiast sites help their advertising amongst other things and refusing them of any public support will likely mean a lot less of them will crop up.

I guess they know what their doing....

2011 Games Preview

kororas
Stop

May i suggest

Sticking with the consoles if i were you, you're quite clearly out of touch with the pc games market if your going to make the assumption the pc market is dead just because a few big names take a while to get some games out.

Hell id rather them take some time over it to produce a game with some depth unlike some questionable console titles that are pumped out to appease the masses.

Apple posts $20bn+ quarter

kororas
Jobs Horns

A lot of these comments...

Are from people that have some irrational behaviour that dont want to see Apple do well, I on the other hand say fair play to them, even though I will never have any intention of buying their products.

I am however slightly disturbed by this, as I have grown very wary of capatilist ventures making too much money because they start to get more than a little bullish and egotistical in the market.

I for one

quite like this game and believe its well worth the 34.99 i paid for it. Blizzard have polished this game to a very high standard which is something far from common in the pc game market these days with all the cross console ports and crap going on.

Microsoft says it again - no second beta for Windows 7

kororas

Too eager

They seem to eager to get this one out, probably to make up for poor Vista uptake. Those of use who already have Vista should see no real reason to upgrade. Id prefer to see them take a little more time over their OS releases (5yrs) and bring whole new feature sets to the table rather than having to shell out every couple of years for some minor improvements.
