This release makes it sound like Stanford engineered it

I don't know what record they are claiming to have achieved with 1mill cores.

Re: Public interest defence
The Computer Misuse Act doesn't contain *any* defenses, let alone Public Interest.
The best you can do is say you didn't know you were unauthorised.
> can also only run 32KB of program code with around 2KB of memory.
pfft, kids today, in my day that was more than the program code, the memory, the OS and the screen RAM combined. And we liked it!
These are people with access to RIPA
Making these phones a *very* attractive target.
One "sandbox" app across two platforms. Yeah, that sounds like an excellent idea.
Sandboxes, pfft, they work great on compromised devices.
Still, no less secure than whatever shitty Dell is going to be running at their homes.
Is that how you get a degree these days ?
Still, they are better than some of the Comp-Sci graduates I've interviewed.
1 in a million always dodgy to me
I've always thought the X in a million chances of a DNA match was one of the dodgiest statistics around.
DNA is not randomly distributed. So to say "picked at random from the popualtion there is a 1 in X chance of a match" is not the same as "the chance of DNA picked at random from the town in which you and your ancestors have lived in for over 1000 years is 1 in X".
> While Linux is supposed to be open source, Microsoft has claimed since 2007 that more than 235 of its patents are violated by the project.
Care to explain what "supposed to be" to is trying to say here ?
And what on earth does that have to do with the claim by Microsoft ?
v. sloppy Brid-Aine
So it's BROWSERS that are broken NOT TLS ?
Because TLS is used in other places than the web browser, in your Email connections for instance:
Received: from TX2EHSOBE001.bigfish.com (tx2ehsobe001.messaging.microsoft.com [18.104.22.168])
(using TLSv1 with cipher AES128-SHA (128/128 bits))
bunch of whiners
$500 a month for hosting and no sysadmin to pay. Not an amazing deal but not ruinous either.
About the same as going to Rackspace.
Must have only use 6 proxies
generic name for obvious app
When I saw thew bullet points for what's new in iOS5 my first reaction was : "blimey, you've been living *without* those things for all this time, I thought your platform was supposed to be useful. I guess they had to spend a lot of time getting the phone to pretend to be a flute".
And the icon, the symbol for WiFi combined with the symbol for sync as used by 1990s Palm Pilot.
let me know when there's some *real* news, ta.
Oh BBC, pot kettle
BBC News has learnt that the Government has spent tens of thousands of pounds developing iPhone applications.
"It seems many Government bodies have given in to the temptation to spend money on fashionable gimmicks at a time when they are meant to be cutting back on self-indulgent wastes of money", he told BBC News.

Personally I use Rio from Plan9port, that's right. a WM you've never heard of.
Getting Java running is hard enough!!
Porridge, with jam
A guy I kind of know was in prison (he was caught with guns an live hand grenades in his car !!). He kept running his business with a mobile and played Xbox all day. He said if it wasn't for the fact he couldn't have sex with his missus he would have been quite happy to stay inside.
I might click OK this week when I have no juicy info.
Then a few months down the line I get tempted into the "link this account to your mobile so you can MMS right ot your news feed" feature and I forget I already gave Zynga permission to SMS spam me as and when.
Or better still "reply to this text to stop this sort of spam" [only 1.50 per message, two messages required]
bunch of ranters
> to see how we can regulate the virtual city **while still regarding the internet as an opportunity**
an opportunity for whom and for what ?
Commerce is already doing fine, no need to touch that
anyway, I hope morality is just a smokescreen.
"The bombs dropped on Hiroshima killed 200,000 people, so you can stuff your morality" - crass
Linux is a cleaning product on t'continent
Looks like kitchen roll
Email - damn stuff
I have to send bulk (solicited) email. Writing the code and pressing "send" is a nervous time, even when you think you've tested everything.
Loving the hate
PHP is disliked because it is a shit language. Simple as that.
It has no rigourl, arguments to functions are inconsistently ordered str_replace is it (in_this_string, replace_this, with_this) or (replace_this, with_this, in_this_string) ?
then, of course, there's this http://imgur.com/7unV7
PHP is popular because it has batteries included and back when I started using it, when it was called Personal Home Page, the alternatives were CGI (mostly Perl) or ASP (vbscript, jscript).
I continue to use it through gritted teeth because once I've coded it up my replacement for ongoing maintenance will be much cheaper than me.
Need an address for online ?
I don't think so chummy.
Market Forces ?
This should be a golden opportunity, the campaigners should start a business offering porn free internet / porn by password internet.
They'll either make a mint or lose out from lack of demand.
We did this for lulz
The first year "Stars in Their Eyes" had an online poll they had nothing to stop multi-voting. So we whipped up an auto-voting script. Was funny hearing Matthew Kelly say "we've had an amazing response to our Internet voting".
MBR writing is due to MS DRM my friends
A windows PC doesn't fill the MBR so "clever" apps have been using it as a private scratch space :
including but not limited to HP ProtectTools, PC Angel, Adobe Flexnet
btw. Coraid uses Plan 9 From Bell Labs
I know they don't make much of it in the news but I know they do as they are very active in the Plan9 community, in fact they hosted last year's Plan 9 International Conference in Athens, GA. http://4e.iwp9.org/
Brantley is a nice guy, I wish them all the best.
Two is Three
> City A.M. called it a second Google-branded phone.
oh the ignorance flows like Ukrainian aluminium runoff
The Nexus One was the SECOND Google banded phone. I might just replace my G1 with this, the *third* Google phone.
sending a hash of my username instead, thanks
local users is a misnomer
because www is a local user, smtp is a local user, even nobody etc.etc.
