Anyone in business who says "it's in our DNA" should probably ignored. Probably not the best person to have as CEO!
Cool IP addresses for the DNS
184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 - Now those be memorable IP addresses for DNS settings!
Won't somebody think of the children?
Is the babys surname going to be Trueman by any chance?
Agree with the author
Security is not down to just getting in via the expected route.. but any way possible. It appears that StrongWebmail thought they were invincible, but were not, and probably never will be, especially with an attitude that the hackers didnt really get in. Rubbish.
Would be interesting to know what was in the schedule...
If millions are using Windows 7 full time..
Then surely moving to the RC is an upgrade path that they want to test.
Sounds like the parts are trying to run too fast or hot
Silicon setup and hold timing issues manifest at higher temperatures. If the phones are not out of spec for the devices, perhaps the firmware is overclocking the silicon... Regardless, it looks like Apple are running their devices on the very edge....
Mine's the one that just makes calls.
Big step in the right direction
A great move by apple, which will help bring DRM-free to the masses.
Next they will be banning blank CDs and DVDs, as they could be used for playing back copied music... Or DVD burners for being able to write them.
Mind the language
I echo ACs point - no need for all the profanity!
6 months or $5000
Seems a bit low for deliberately infecting someone!
... get a first life!
No security expert worth their salt
Would share files from a sandbox to their host PC. Sad to see that VMware has this vulnerability though - hope to see it patched soon!
Forget blu-ray, HD-dvd, SD cards, MicroSD, and the like... this is the future.... not.
[throws his single umd film in the bin]
And now follows...
Lots of HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray banter, eventually leading into fanboys of the PS3 and XBOX-360.
ps - go blu-ray
I for one love lovefilm
They keep sending me 3 month free trial vouchers, about once a year. So I go onto the 3disk at a time deal, eat as much as I can then quit, and wait for the next voucher.
Cant grumble at free..
Will! Never! Happen!
Anyone this vain
... would expect it to be a mac under the hood, and have more ram than my work laptop. Steve, as he charges extra for fancy cases.
I'd like to know where the black multimeter probe is connected....... without that information, that reading does not mean anything!
Perhaps I'm missing the point, but what possible benifit is a network attachment to a toaster?
A CD... by post??
A CD? ~700 Meg?
Why not just securely deliver it online? <sigh>
When will they learn...
It has long been known that the way to stop security holes is to not have any services running unless they are absolutely necessary, and then really be on the ball.
Look at Win XP - the number of critical services hacks has been reduced substantially by the default enabling of the firewall in recent times, effectively preventing the services being visible from the net.
Services that are enabled by default are bad news. A router should look stealth on all ports by default, anything else is just begging for someone to start digging.
Wep is an industry standard...
Then again so is an open access point. Wep is broken, and Eircom should know better.
How hot will it run?
Would love to buy two...
But I'm sure I read somewhere that only residents of the US and Canada will be able to get them.
I guess they could always follow Apple and Microsofts strategy, and offer it here in Blighty for £400 ... <sigh>
Ring tones are the most annoying thing on this planet. I mean, come on... whats wrong with "ring ring?". Anyone attempting to turn any kind of music into a ringtone should be charged...
Nice idea but....
What about if the car is full of drunk people, but the driver is not.... would the sensors really be able to differentiate between a drunk passenger and a drunk driver?
Also if someone has just had a drink, would they already be perspiring alcohol?
Sounds like a nice idea, but I dont see it hitting the streets any time soon. And if so, the price of it will probably make it an optional extra.
Why iPlayer is deemed to fail
It has an "i" at the front - which means Apple will most likely sue... don't they have rights on anything that starts with an i ?? :-)
