Hacker faces 105 years inside after FBI 'sexploitation' arrest

Rob - Denmark
Boffin

Re: But...how??

Might be: Some girls like girls.

So attacker finds saucy pictures on Alice's (who is into girls) drive, and Alice knows Carol and Diana (also into girls - note the "details on their female friends" part).

Then Bob pretends to be Alice and sends Carol and Dinah a saucy e-mail suggesting pics for pics.

Easy to compute from here.

Just guessing though.

Yep, those ready to abduct you and cut you open to harvest your kidney will definitely check your Facebook profile beforehand, and find another victim, if you haven't given your permission.

Ten... smartphone survival accessories

Rob - Denmark
Boffin

Re: Nasty!

"If that's a full charge in 5 minutes, you'll be lucky if you battery (or phone) survives for long."

The charger can't force the phone to charge faster than it's build for. Electronics in the phone takes care of that, so it'll drain 1 Ah (probably), no matter how many Ah the charger is able to deliver.

5 minutes will NOT give a full charge.

Re: Bender 4 Prez

I think you missed this part of the article:

>>"It was too good an opportunity to pass up," explained Professor Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan. "How often do you get the chance to hack a government network without the possibility of going to jail?"<<

But if you call the risk of going to jail 'a little more interesting', you are right.

Apple recalls first iPod Nanos over battery flaw

Rob - Denmark
Thumb Down

Probably not a new one

"If it is, Apple will send you a box in which to return the player. Six weeks later, you'll receive your replacement. Will it be a new Nano 1G or a more recent model? Apple didn't say. "

Since they need 6 weeks, it's probably not a new one, me thinks.

Fox News tweets hacked to show Obama death stories

Rob - Denmark
Boffin

Just guessing

Here's how tey COULD do it:

If n<5:

Try four times. Wait for the user to login (=post to Twitter), thus resetting the counter. Try four times. Repeat.

OR IF the user don't login, wait an hour (counter is reset after an hour according to http://support.twitter.com/entries/63510-i-m-locked-out-after-too-many-login-attempts) before trying four times again.

But, more likely, they've used a social hack or someone re-used the same password on other sites.

HTTP-on-steroids busts out of Google

Rob - Denmark

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

"A good trick, provided the resulting code still validates and still behaves properly in all target browsers (which probably includes IE6). "

Since IE6 don't support the new protocol, data for IE6 would still be transmitted 'the old way'.

Surely, Sony could have paid him themselves?

Sony could have made a transaction from Northern California to his account, before handing in the subpoena.

That way they can be 100% sure that they'll find a transaction that'll let them sue him in San Francisco.

"It stinks to be number two in a market. Or worse, number three. But that's the position that most consumer technology companies find themselves in today,"

How is this specific for the technology market?

If there is more than two companies on the market, surely most of those companies must find themselves being number two or three? Or four or...?
