Google ups ante to $5,000 for Chrome browser bug bounties

Glenns

How much do security researchers...

..get paid ???

"recent paper published by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley found that over a three-year period, Google's bug bounty programs cost it less than it would likely have paid a single full-time employee."

Google have paid out $2Million+ are they really going to pay single security researcher $666,000 PA ???

WTF?

Re: Buy ARM?

I'm glad I'm not the only one wondering when bubble 2.0 will burst... instagram for $1billion !! WTF !!

They are expecting facebook to be valued around $100 billion...for a company with increasing costs and decreasing profits ($205m last quarter) I don't get it :S

Fantastic article

This is why I come to the Reg, so much nicer to read a well informed structured article as opposed to the usual "my dads bigger than your dad" fanboy rantings on other sites

Seven lessons from the HP Touchpad fire sale

Sort of agree...

I'm in a lucky position to have had a few tablets, both iOS and Android based they all do what they are designed for (media consumption) very well, personally I prefer the Android system but iOS is good if somewhat overrated. the problem i have with tablets its their main attribute, size.

Too large to fit a pocket means I will normally use my phone unless the tablet is in arms reach, this is why so many have become coffee table devices, this is where I believe most will exist well into the future, and that's a good thing as its where most people feel comfortably (in their lounge watching tv) browsing the internet , playing the odd game , reading / writing emails etc.

this is where the price become so important, Apple pitch high, their customer base is happy to pay high but really a secondary or tertiary device (after computer or laptop & phone) should really be in the sub £200 bracket. I suspect this is what Amazon will go for at least with its budget device.

basically phone is with me everywhere, computer / laptop is for everything and tablet is for lazying on couch reading news and generally slobbery computing.

I have noticed that many of my clients who own iPhones or other smartphones with 3-3.5" screens seem to use them more than people who own newer phones with larger screens i.e. SGS2 etc

I think when limited to 3.5 inch or less on your phone the tablet is more necessary, when you have super amoled plus 4.5" gorgeousness :D tablets get less use.

Psychological projection

I work in manufacturing items specifically like this and I can tell you that the £1 mentioned by another commenter is very close to the real cost of this item.

You just seem to be desperate to justifying Apple's failings by accusing others of being idiots.

Apple overpriced ..again

I guess your looking in the wrong places, I just got a spare battery for my Vaio VGN-FW21M, cost me less than £50 and has a damm sight more value than a little cable.

£35 for something that should be included is a disgrace, but hey that's Apple for you.
