>Local governments have no desire to spend resources negotiating SSL/TLS with every single smartphone in their area when things explode, rivers flood, or people are poisoned
Yea, I'm not sure what the writers of that were thinking, but that's exactly when you want the verifiability of TLS. Otherwise a third party could make things worse by pushing out fake updates or bad information. Yes, TLS has it's own issues, but non-TLS has no verifiability at all.
Ask most people who or what the Internet is and you'll they'll give you some strange answer, even most tech people that don't directly work with it. How many people will say off the top of their head that IANA makes the Internet, the internet?
Chrome did have a lot of bugs. In fact I assume all browsers have a great number of bugs because they try to do everything and the kitchen sink. That said, both Chrome and FF update quickly when there are active exploits in the wild. With IE you'll have to wait till patch Tuesday, unless it is really bad. Adobe is rather hated for taking a long time to patch exploits, and even worse, their update program taking forever to actually update, with the default setting of check once a week.
No, He's probably a standard user, not an admin. On domain networks java update will not download correctly if you are a standard user and eleivate to a domain admin. You have to log in as a admin to get it to work in the first place.
>Why the mighty eff does a mobile OS need to be so big while doing so little?
Because Apple doesn't make small. Even on Windows iTunes is huge. It also benefits them if they ignore bloated application sized. Oh, 8GB iPhone isn't big enough, well spend another $100 more for 16GB total storage. iOS running slow? Buy an iPhone 7 with 42 bajillion cores.
If phones were kept for a long time, or very low profit items, they may focus on more optimized applications, but that is not the case. Phones get replaced fast and ease of programming for the developer is the focus. We're going to have to deal with the fat os for a long time.
What are you going on about Nate. That is not laptop form factor, and will not fit in many laptops. It is a 2.5 inch form factor drive, but its around 5mm thick. No different than the 2.5" enterprise spinning rust.
Most larger storage arrays have gone to 2.5" for higher density IOPs in spinning rust, SSDs keep the same format for convenience.
Or do you work for WDC who doesn't have a flash line up yet and is trying to FUD the technology?
You've not done your reading on this exploit yet. It went from 'not exploitable' to 'exploitable in a case or two' to 'we're finding new exploit avenues every day'.
I'd have thought you'd have learned after looking at 20+ years of netsec experience online that vulnerabilities never get better after being released, the only potential is to get worse.
It is with unfortunate regret that we inform you that Yugguy has passed away in an auto accident. Shortly after performing maintenance on his Honda Civic his car was seen speeding out of control before crashing in to a concrete pylon and bursting in to flame. Upon further investigation a Stuxnet variant was found on a thumb drive in his laptop computer. No other details are available at this time.
If I watch Netflix on my Wii on Google Fiber, it too will show slow speeds. Stream speed != Internet speed.
>I tried "firstname.lastname@example.org" and it appears that that entirely made up name had already been pawned at Adobe.
Oh, how original. I'm sure you if tried email@example.com or one of the other top 100 made up email addresses you'd find them in commonly hacked databases. Even on sites that require a validation email doesn't mean your address is ever deleted from the server if it's not validated.
It's been going on longer that they are even admitting. Some weeks ago I noticed messages sent to my yahoo account had gone from taking about a minute or two to show up to ever increasing amounts of times. Even worse, if you sent the same message a few times you would get one message almost instantly, one twenty minutes later, and the other just disappeared never to be seen again. Something is very wrong there.
I installed downloaded the boot iso and did a net install inside a virtualbox today. The install worked rather well. Many things like setting the root password could be done while the packages were installing allowing the installer to do 2 things at once. Systemd and firewalld are going to take some getting used to though. The updated httpd-2.4, mariadb(mysql)5.5, and updated php were much needed.

>How did a cluster of 4W devices beat a cluster of 95W Xeons?
The same way a GPU beats a cluster of CPUs. CPUs are not 'great' at massively parallel problems, conversely it is unlikely these processors will perform poorly on serial operations.
It's not unheard of in the Linux world either. Tiff isn't a jpg at all, much more complicated format used in the business and medical world pretty often.
>Its very difficult to build a good simulation
You mean impossible.
You can't build a decent simulation of the market when so much of the current behavior of the market is tantamount to abuse of the system. When a new strategy is successful it can rapidly become the dominate behavior in HFT systems in a very short period of time, risk be damned.
Getting rid of the device would be the best first step, but not everybody will be able to act upon that measure in a timely fashion. Disabling remote admin would at least stop a completely unsolicited probe from owning you. The unit could still be attacked via XSS very easily.
And the unexpected reply was
"I'm sorry, I can't do that Dave."
I've done a fair number of SANs this year where the VM storage and bulk file storage are stored on spinning disks, but all the databases have been moved to flash. Moving to flash for DBs has decreased the cost of the installs, fewer servers are needed to serve the same load.
My guess on why they are having a hard time tracking Snowden in the audits... All the system admins were doing similar profile sharing/switching just to get the system to work. It's really easy to track an anomaly traverse a system, but when when the anomalous behavior is standard procedure they may never be able to figure out exactly what happened.
>One place I was at wouldn't let you email the fully dotted quad of a non-routable ip address but were fine with you emailing a MAC address.
I bet you'd blow their mind if you told them you could convert a IP to decimal format.
Crafty people always have a way of getting around dumb policies.

Advancements in agriculture are a large part of it.
I'd like to know what company this is that has a %100 record of nothing going wrong on a well site? Maybe you mean 99.9% safety record which still be around 1500 incidents a year in the U.S. The incident rate of contamination is very low, but at lest in the U.S. there is a large lobby that pays senators to lie and say it doesn't happen.
I'm not sure what you're on, but we can model the weather rather well, the more input data we model we put in, the more reliable our output is. A large tornado outbreak was forecasted in the midwestern U.S. and it happened. You're confusing an exact simulation of what weather on one particular day in one particular place will be, or what one particular stock will be at one particular time because both are an irreducible calculations.
The stock market can be modeled somewhat. The issue is people use the models to predict and profit from the market, which changes the market conditions.
Reproduction of such models have nothing to do with specific or general learning systems. Predicting non-linear dynamic chaotic systems is impossible and can only be 'determined' in probabilities of outcome.
This is about the stupidest shit I've heard today.
Next you're going to tell me aManfromMARS is the voice of The Register. Or, you can accept the fact that like any site that doesn't pre-moderate comments, people can say anything they want. Some people will learn, other people won't give a fuck and post anything they want anonymously. Some of it will get removed quickly, other times it's widely viewed.
Sunil was likely dead way before the bombings in Boston, he's been missing for months. Not dick shit to do with anything later posted on the internet.
What's really funny is you post as AC, in the world you seem to desire that wouldn't be allowed.
I've got a new idea.
Write tens of thousands of viruses that contain chunks of windows system files from every version of Windows you can find. Cause more damage then the virus ever would have.
I'm not sure in this case, I have seen cases where just paying for the license up front is the cheap way to do it... but it is not always the case. Sometimes a vendor just won't, or cannot provide what you want.
I have a friend who had worked in the oil industry for years. One of the biggest complaints he heard from his customers was how poor the tract management software was for making earnings statements to customers. He asked the company providing the software how much they'd have to pay to get the features they want. Answer: Not going to happen, ever, for any price.
He and two other programmers got together and wrote a web based app that does what the customers want. They built it modular, because it's still a work in progress, if customers want new features they are easy to add. They built it with a consistent internal API, so it can interface with other datasources easily in the future. They use agile development methods, development happens quickly and new feature to rollout times are short. And the program isn't Windows only anymore (on the customers side), it will run in any modern web browser.
I think these big firms doing government contracts are doomed to fail on the projects for a few reason too. Too much complexity, trying to tie in to different legacy systems with varying levels of support. Too large of development teams of substandard coders. Too long of release cycles, features people need now get added in with more complicated features that need longer test cycles, which end up being delayed because of bugs, which end up also testing with other code from other teams trying to get stuff done, which ends up causing other bugs, ad infinitum. By the time the code makes it to the user requirements have changed or additional systems need tied in starting the failure chain all over again.
Because they are trying to observe the storm, not kill it.
The schools in America are turning out too few students willing to work tech jobs for minimum wage.
No. I have a friend with no internet service at their location at all. They are able to play non-online games just fine.
>Win Me was not a disaster at all
I'll assume 3 things.
1. You did not use WinME.
2. You did not support WinME.
3. Your memory has faltered.
I have never seen an operating system corrupt files, randomly blue screen, or oddly fail in so many ways as ME.
The vast majority of the computers I work on have somewhere below 150GB of data. Seemingly there aren't a huge number of people out there making TB's of video and media. On top of that, the people with desktops are keeping them much longer. A 5 year old desktop is still pretty fast.
I agree that Hybrid systems will bring the power/price down much faster, if the performance numbers on the FirePro SM10000 hold up. 1.4T of DP math... uuhh, that's crazy. The Nvidia K20 isn't a slacker either. Since supercomputers by their nature are parallel, GPUs will inherently speed them up.
Yes, it was an amplification attack. The attacker sends a small packet, bytes generally, the server replies with a larger packet. 512 bytes with the old behavior and much larger packets with the large udp packet behavior. Any request that sends back more data then send to the wrong host can be described as an amplification attack. It's the magnitude of the DNS response that makes it so effective.
You are right on BIND, the correct response is not to return large amounts of data if you don't have the answer.
>Yes, there were issues at the start, but they seem to a lot better now, I happily spent a couple of hours on it last night, and another 30 minutes this morning.
A lot better? I don't own the game since I do not buy from the devil (EA), but watching the Sims Channel on Twitch.tv I see a lot of 15-20 minute wait times for a server spot. And also unsurprising is the number of "We're having errors loading this region' after that. The whole thing is a slap in the face of the fans of the series.
>So, they're either not very well tested and engineered patches, or patches for incredibly simple problems
Most security flaws are simple problems, implementation errors that can lead to serious problems (off by 1 error).
A few patches need to be well engineered because of a design flaw that cannot be fixed trivially (ActiveX).
Firefox will push a serious release to stable within a day, if whatever f'ed up distribution takes a month that's not their fault. Go back to being abused by Microsoft and Oracles terrible patching schedules and stop trolling here.
Software methods are much more difficult to patent and far easier to implement via other methods. If patents are overly broad you get Amazons trying to patent web shopping carts in any form. When you run a product on someone elses service/product you are at their whims. Look up the history of Microsoft and Excel.
>I'm not sure why we ever needed domain names.
>Telephones don't have a similar concept to domain names
I'd say that's incorrect. Call a large company, listen to the options menu press 1. 1 is likely a 'tele-dns*'
lookup to a ring-group, which looks up individual extensions to ring. The PBX doesn't share that information with the public telephone company at large.
*tele-dns is some crap I've made up that represents the data lookup the system does. In large systems this can get quite complex.

That's because they want to draw you in close. Next thing you know you're locked in a basement of some cult in Utah with 10 other families with 6 wives each. Be wary of those who smile too big.
What ever you do, don't give the customers what they want.
We will instead.
The Pirate Bay.
How to sum up the entire article
TL;DR Business as usual.
"The database is a joint project of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which provided most of the funding, the Carnegie Corporation of New York and school officials from several states. Amplify Education, a division of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, built the infrastructure over the past 18 months. When it was ready, the Gates Foundation turned the database over to a newly created nonprofit, inBloom Inc, which will run it."
Microsoft (via Bill G) wants to corner the market themselves.
IPv6 is going to go thru all the growing pains IPv4 did so many years ago. Now most IPv4 kit has been rolled up in libraries and modules for so long that the developers have forgot all the magic that's been done to keep it from exploding in users faces.
>If "just clicking on things" causes your computer to become compromised, it's not the fault of the user
Most modern browsers don't, not even IE. Most of the 'just click on things" these days are fake A/V warnings meant to trick the dull (some of them are pretty good). How is a browser suppose to stop someone from purposely downloading a file and running it (but the prompt said I had a virus and I needed to run this to remover it!)?
A/V is still mostly useless because the malware writers make lots of copies of their crap and release the ones that pass A/V detection that day, then release a new batch every day after that. A/V is a losing game.
Buyer B now can a)buy it.
a.1) maybe depending on where they live, with widely ranging prices
a.2) maybe depending on their operating system, player, method of connectivity
a.3) be prompted to install all kinds of weird shit to make it work.
a.4) still have it not work, or have it downgraded to low-def
a.5) not be able to play it on 2 different devices because of strange producer whims.
a.6) have the manufacture stop supporting whatever odd DRM after some amount of time
d) Steal it for one price
d.1) anywhere in the world
d.2) use it on any operating system, player, or method of connectivity they transcode it to
d.3) use their standard player of choice
d.4) have it just work
d.5) play it on 2 different devices
d.6) never have to worry about DRM.
Some people are always going to violate copyright on media, not much you can do about that. The rest of them want a cheap, easy, and fair way of getting your product. Itunes with all its bullshit DRM has shown that if you make it easy, people will buy. People are creatures of laziness, going out and pirating stuff is just hard enough that easy to use services like Netflix make it not worthwhile. Successful producers are going to have to realize the 20th century is gone, in the 21st century the world is globally connected. Putting up little 'content' walls is laughable.
For me the situation is simple: Adapt or die.
Historical quite attributed to Andrew Orlowski-Antoinette: "Let them eat digital cake."
""Intellectual property is a monopoly" is a child's logic." Meaning that even a child can recognize it, whats the saying? From the mouth of babies.
If this is the least-badderest way we can come up with then the whole system is screwed because it ignores human nature.
1. People want stuff to work,
2. they want it cheap,
3. they want it now.
What has the copyright cartel delivered them.
1. DRM - Sorry, that expensive player doesn't work right because, HDCP, Region flags, some other bug, etc.
2. Digital download, only $5 MORE then buying the disk! Whadda Bargain!
3. Regional Availability - Please wait till next year you kangaroo eating fucks.
Hey, let them keep their head in the sand making shitty products, worked well for American car manufactures in the 70's.
