An essential instrument in the hackers toolkit for attacking one of the least secure parts of the system.
Judging by my Google search history, I'm going to be seeing porn everywhere I go....
Awesome :) El Reg really is an education sometimes. Also, see the comment way way above this one about water inhibiting the thermal runaway.
I am not a chemist, but I remember from school that water and lithium is generally a bad combination. Is water really the safest way to put out a battery fire?
Oh yeah! That sounds like a really good idea!
It's bad enough that he's been jailed for a boneheaded facebook comment, and now this?
Is this the American penal system at work? Is he being assaulted by the inmates or the wardens?
How about if I were to build a robot that could consent to and even enjoy being a sex slave? Would that satisfy you?
If it can be shown that those bugs are directly responsible for sending innocent people to jail, I think the Post Office are going to have a very very big legal bill on their hands.
Their Iron Dome seems to work pretty well.
They were probably thinking, "Woah, this is easy... Nintendo have obviously not heard of Intrusion detection."
Vertical landing would be a boon if you were thinking of landing your rocket on a planet or moon with little or no atmosphere.
You know what? A pot plant would really spruce that place up a bit.
Sie müssen die Deutschen lieben! :D
(lieben die Deutschen? I can never remember where german verbs are supposed to go)
Google isn't going to take data protection seriously until the Information Commissioner's Office does.
An artist trying to be sciencey :D

Katie Patterson would do well to study their attempts.
I'm not sure which is worse. Screwing up a service that customers have paid for, or the terrible grammar.
Couldn't put that rocket back together again.
Yeah, but you try telling them that!
Random capitals, rabid foaming at the mouth zeal for open source unix systems....
It's hauntingly familiar.
Sounds like some kind of two way telescreen.
Aw come on! How can that not be in the public interest? You know he's got to be up to something!
I guess we'll find out if it really is a quantum processor after the wave function collapses.
Does Labour MP Helen Goodman have any evidence of this? (Besides people posting pictures of their kids?)
With all these warnings I'm genuinely curious about the link now.
Dare I click on it?
Modern games developers! Take note!
You could learn a lot from Prince of Persia.
Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't make it right.

Speak for yourself. I'm a riot.
Women enter plenty of professions with a less glamorous image. To suggest that women are this shallow is just as bad as the "lets paint it pink" marketing of tech firms that want to appeal to women.
The UK survived the blitz, the IRA, and the entire cold war without losing our liberties and freedom.
What's so special about the latest batch of people trying to destroy us that we need to hand over all our cash to GCHQ, MI5 and MI6?

A Key Signing Party!
