And with this I nominate Street Kings.
Well they did knock
I guess the guys inside were expecting Heisenberg.
That's not the issue here. The problem is with knowing that certain functions take different amounts of time to perform for different inputs. These time differentials allows the attacker to make educated guessed as to the contents of the input.
I thought this was common knowledge since the 90's
I clearly remember bullying a chicken with my sword until I was thrashed mercilessly by all the other chickens in the area
Two things to consider
1. If it's not complete, the author doesn't want to risk it being caught before it's even finished.
2. The author may think a disclaimer like that will cover his ass.
Gets its configuration in from a server
Malware 2.0? TaaS (Trojans as a service)? Now we just need a new breed of virus to infect our webapps.
For the same reason Google gives away their stuff for free - Opera's able to collect beaucoup amounts of data from people routed through its proxies. They can then sell this info for a tidy profit.
Why pay for translators?
This technology works often enough well enough that there's no point in hiring translators. Sure it's subject to trolling attempts - when there's a large enough group to actually dedicate to the task. But it's also easily fixed.
And what good would that do?
You realize that the infrastructure itself is down, right? No internet connection renders tor worthless.
But hey, don't let that stop you from tooting your own horn.
Android phones, huh?
So it seems that this is implemented as software. This will be great when some enterprising teen creates a hack to override GPS coordinates reported from the device. Give it a month and every kid will be able to easily lie to their parents about their location: "See? The phone says I was at school all day!"
why they bothered
isn't obvious? Steve Jobs marched into the industrial design section of Apple and demanded that they begin using star-shaped screws. Duh
Not a conspiracy theorist, but
Sounds like the government is either testing GPS security or is preparing a way to defend the united states against gps-guided attacks
ID theft? Really?
I'm by no means a lawyer, but wouldn't identity theft imply that he assumed her identity? Even though it's Google's end goal to tie a gmail account to a specific person, I highly doubt that email is considered a dimension of one's identity. Now if he were to communicate with others using her account there'd be more of a point to argue, but I haven't read anywhere that he impersonated her.
On the other hand, if he is convicted, then all of my friends who've screwed with my facebook account had better look out.
Apple and USB
I don't think Apple will outfit its products with a micro USB port. More likely, they'll throw in a mUSB-to-dock adapter and call it a day.
What connector is that? it looks like sata of some sort.
It'll be really nice when it gets cheap enough to use for NAS or media purposes, but dual drive storage is a great step in the right direction, especially now that they're large enough to store a modern OS w/applications.
Also, have SSD's moved read/write speed bottlenecks elsewhere?
Welcome to Costco
I love you
A resounding sentiment
Hotmail is irrevocably tied to people who chose their handle at age 11 and those looking for a disposable email address.
Just like most of the comments I read, I agree that they need some serious rebranding.
Couldd go either way
They could get pissed off since Amazon's selling the docs, or they may give Amazon a pass for dumping wikileaks from their hosting service by making the information available.
A script kiddie? Probably not
According to the article, he used software he developed
When does Google release it's new (beta!) GBB service?
That's Google Business Bureau for all of you who won't see it coming.
This is no surprise
My wife's been subsisting on arsenic for the past 2 years!
They won't be standing on solid ground when there's an E.Coli epidemic... it'll be rather muddy.
Grabbin my coat for when shit hits the fan
"The Russian company mocked the system by posting doctored photos authenticated by the system purporting to show Russian cosmonauts landing on the moon ahead of US astronauts and Joseph Stalin brandishing an iPhone."
Gotta love them.
I'm calling it as this too.
But that's actually going to be released...
You're on the wrong site bro.
Google is Santa Claus
Good for them
I've thought for sometime that texting and email should converge, seeing as how the only apparent difference to the common user is the endpoint. Might as well throw chat/tweeting into that mix.
I'm as cautious about vertical integration as the next person here, but the idea won't be tied to facebook for long.
Maybe you shouldn't have such a suspiciously large package in your carry-on
It's like Godwin's Law for Apple
Hey bro, thanks for bringing Apple into this. Totally relevant to the story at hand. yup
Microsoft's handling this poorly, sure...
Sure Microsoft's handling this poorly, but they may be selling the Kinect peripheral at cost or at a loss to get people to buy 360's. They may even have plans to sell it for the PC eventually, charging for the driver/software in the process. Also they may be concerned with a third-party effort since it will not perform as well as it would with their own software.
B for attention to detail
F for lack of commitment
You've completely missed the point
That's the other side of the same coin - if you cannot tell that the minerals came from DRC, how can you tell that the minerals /didn't/ come from DRC?
Read the article again. The papertrail cannot be trusted, rendering any audit worthless.
I think the dolphins noticed the humans' fear. As in the guy holding the slab was afraid of dropping it, and the dolphin picked up on that.
this shit is boonanas
I can't wait to read up on how it operates.
Installed Office 2011 Monday
And I like the way the ribbon looks. It looks much better than its Windows counterpart.
What I don't like, however, is Visual Basic for Applications.
Time for a beer
I think it's about playing kids games at a library or a meat-market or something. They even mentioned connecting fans. Sounds pretty boring to me
The poor guy never grew out of the nerdy/awkward middle-schooler phase where everything out of his mouth was guaranteed to creep someone right the fuck out
The Political Reality Distortion Field? Sounds redundant.
I think Steve already knows how to create more Jobs
I'm assuming the government's in control of infrastructure development and maintenance. so it's not hard to reason that they would want to help their country progress by giving citizens access to accurate data.
Also remember Google's based in a foreign country, and hasn't exactly shown itself to be trustworthy, even in its homeland.
I'm glad Apple is doing this
Apple's Java implementation has always felt half-assed to me. Withdrawing it means someone with more resources to devote to a mac port - say, for example, Oracle - will pick up the slack and keep it in line with the Windows and Linux versions.
Oh, and I don't particularly care for Java anyway.
The cold war all over again
I hear that Iran just acquired the low orbit ion cannon...
I think this is where PageRank would come into play. Prices on goods from sites that rank low have less of an effect than ones from high-ranking sites.
Most companies I've seen open source their products are attempting to follow the redhat model: give the software away and charge for support.
That's quite some hyperbole.
Microsoft doesn't have the quite the same power that they wielded at the turn of the millennium.
Furthermore, there's a lot at stake considering the precedent this ruling would set - for everyone involved. And no, this isn't some sort of karmic payback, since this kind of ruling harms the industry as a whole.
Plus, haven't the pitchfork and horns been passed on to Google or Apple in your eyes?
I would love something mobile and not touched by an overseeing company and allows me to visually understand how much I'm providing for goods and services..
Oh wait, that's cash.
Copyright holders know exactly what to look out for and when someone actually violates their copyright.
I thought if a courier began filtering anything they would be responsible for everything? As in they'd lose their common courier status.
Spies don't just get fired, they get burned.
I feel the same way, since it'd essentially be a black-balling move on Google's part. However, it does send a strong message to anyone thinking of doing something similar: there are serious consequences for privacy invasions.
All said, of course Google wouldn't know how to keep a person's private info secret.
