Naughty Flash Player BURIED ALIVE in OS X Mavericks Safari sandbox

Alperian

Flash locked up like the 'Princes in the tower'. I am looking forward to the total invulnerability of HTML5. Web developers are being played like marks in a big con while Adobe has got itself at least 10 more years of development cycles with its 'Edge' products.

Today I think I'll move an ellipse across the canvas. Yey!

Takes me back to Flash 4.

ALIEN DETECTION was SUPPRESSED by the BBC - top boffin

Alien

If you asked these BBC people why they don't buy a lottery ticket, they would probably say that the odds are "too astronomical" (although they probably make £240,000 pa anyhow).

Ask them if they would consider a program looking for aliens (Alien Watch Live!?) and they would cite H&S reasons.

Is anyone with that magnitude of judgement impairment employable?

Nowadays $100,000 won't even get you a design proposal for the 'ultimate bacon sarnie'. Surprising the amount of empty PR it will buy though when your scramjet just went down in flames and your spare Mars lander ate dirt.

Alperian

More Legislation

What we need is to clampdown on earthquakes. In particularly, tremors in local constituencies where carbon capture is being implemented. Perhaps a new Westminster carbon forum would be the answer?

LinkedIn admits site hack, adds pinch of salt to passwords

Alperian

Nonsensical

if you go to www.linkedin.com/home it says this:

'We will not store your password or email anyone without your permission.'

Methinks they might be buffoons.

Chrome spends a week at the top of the browser charts

Re: Untick

I always use the fastest browser at any one time because I (like most folks) want the page up immediately. It is therefore a shame that FF12 became the speed champ too late. Google is just too big and powerful a company now in all things. I use FF12 and rarely if ever start up ie.
