Cnet slammed for wrapping Nmap downloads with cruddy toolbar

Aye - There's a Story Here

I had the email from Fyodor today, and wanted to push this over to some one at El Reg but couldn't find a link to submit (before my brain wandered on to other stuff.... : "WooHoo! Earthlike planet!!")

It's shocking to see that a 'stalwart' (loosest possible meaning of the term) of the download repositories has done this..

Gone in a Flash: Adobe's long march to HTML5

Alex-TheManfromUncle
Thumb Down

Finally!

Where as I sincerely appreciate what Flash has down for the internet, I have always been a sceptic for its use.

In my experience it slowed down machines, crashed websites, and needed a further update/plugin/install for it to work. The same went for Silverlight.

I prefer nice, clean code that all parties, browsers, and devices can use with little or no additional fuss.

Kelly "The Red" Fiveash does it again..

""Large swathes of the countryside will be able to access super-fast broadband as BT continues its roll-out and as funds already lined up by the government become available in the next five years or so," it said."

...Sort of goes against the tag line, Kelly...!!

Sony to demo 'world's first' in-box wireless tech

Distance

Think of it more like you would need to have your listening device within the workstation to be able to snoop the info being transfered. 14mm isn't that great a distance, and you would need to be within that 14mm radius to pick it up.

Personally, thin kthis is an interesting idea, aside from Wize's (quite correct) security issue.

There might be a use for this in the future, but it's far too early to say.

Grrrrr!

3 freaking months I've been waiting for an i7.. 3!

Some say I've been lucky with not having one from the start, but the fact of the matter is it just wasn't ready yet..

Strangely though, I'm still waiting patiently for one..... Yes yes, you can call me stupid, I don't mind.

Heh "Avoid Detection"

From the F-Secure article:

"In order to avoid detection, it bypasses the local web proxy when doing this connection. "

So that'll mean it'll show up on the firewall then... Oh wait.. you mean it wasn't set up accordingly??

oh?

I just ask the steward/dess for one - very usually have one spare. But then again, a pen is always in my carryon.. until such time that someone uses one (or similar) to be silly with..
