Google analytics should not be on a site that requires EV SSL. Its a security disaster waiting to happen if it is.

Microsoft's Automatic Update - the way to browser competition?

Jim

How do you download Opera w/o IE

They have every right to have IE in the OS. Besides what happens if you break the install of your current browser. What they should do is allow OEMs and VARS to bundle and set an alternate browser as default. Also they should be forced to make Sharepoint and Outlook Web Access run under every browser. Also they need to support Silverlight in Opera.

The autoupdate feature would be helpful, but i have doubts that Firefox would take advantage of it, there updates are actually pretty well done.

FCC fingers Comcast VoIP favoritism

Jim

The difference

I had a talk with one of the installers, they use the Internet but install a separate cable modem for VOIP. Also they charge $39.95 per month. Vonage is $24.99 a month. I was also told it would not affect the peak bandwidth and that downloading and uploading would not affect the calls. So i would guess the second modem has its own channels and bandwidth to run on.

Armed anti-paedophile cops swoop on video site uploader

Unhappy

This is insane.

This has to stop. Lawmakers secure positions of power, police get recognition and promotions, news agency's make money, but in the process they destroy someones life just from the accusation. And once your accused for this type of crime your considered guilty in any country.

Another thing, when was the last time any pedophile fought back with deadly force? Is an entire armed task force necessary to arrest a pedophile? You may need a task-force of computer experts but not armed personnel. It only purpose is to harm someones reputation weather they are guilty or not. And in the US even non guilty people are purposly stressed to the point that they can no longer function in daily life.

I think its time we sue politions and police, they have endangerd children more than helped them with these kind of activitys. They are more concerned about making themselves popular than protecting children which is just as wrong and immoral.
