But does it....
Come with a free "Secret Service" flight to GitMo?

As they say one hole closes another HUGE security hole opens.....
Users of this new "web app" can cut their own info and paste someone else's info while they are there :D
Drat flaw was fixed.... :(
You buy a licence for Exchange or other server product.... after a year, if you don't pay M$ for a renewal licence or M$ thinks your running an illegal product , it encrypts all your Emails and data, then you have to pay M$ a licence fee for the decrypt key...
Paris 'cause she don't go down more than a Microsoft Server does...
Didn't Sony release a statement last week saying they will be putting prices UP over the next 3 months?
Are they going to do that old Supermarket con of putting the PS3 price up 10% Around Crimbo and New Near, then dropping the price back down 10% and saying it's a saving for the customer? Wonder what price they will release the 160Gb version at?
It's about "fail-intel" the Atom is one of the worst chips ever to be produced. it's way to power hungry, doubles has a hotplate (if you fancy a fired egg with your chips!) and way to slow to be any use...
I'm just waiting to see how the new ARM's fare....
Think about it!
You've got Apple Cloud (when its working)
Then there's Microsoft's Cloud
Then there's Google's Cloud
Then Nokia's OVI might end up as a Cloud network.
Even Shuttleworth's Ubuntu might get on the Cloud Bandwaggon.
Every person in the world using 5 Massive computers to do all their day to day work using NetBooks or NetTerminals.
The Personal PC's cutting / bleeding edge will drift back to the enthusiasts and gamers.
Slight issue with the generally good article.
Ubuntu8.10 did NOT drop support for the 96 & 71 drivers. Nvidia had not released binaries compatible with the new Xorg (Which has now been corrected) in time for the release.
I'm currently using the 96.43.09-0ubuntu-1 drivers on my Laptop with Ubuntu 8.10 with NO issues.
The default "nv" were used in place of the missing Nvidia drivers when it was released.
Mine is the Zulu speaking Penguin....
The point is that the main reason people don't go for Linux is, They think the Command line is scary and to complicated. By showing the user that the Command line is actually simple and useful tool (abit a complicated one at first..) in the first few articles, takes the scary value out of it and once that's out of the way people can then concentrate on the benefits of the Linux OS.
First thing I'd do (if i did that sort of stuff), would be to send out an email to the "work" email addresses (and a few newspaper addresses just for good measure) saying something like:
"I've decided to quit the VP ticket and back Obama/Biden for '08,"
(or something along those lines...) ;)
The sit back and watch as the G.O.P. disintegrates before they realise about the hack :D:D
Every time a suspect is caught on camera in "Police,Stop Action", "Road Wars" or the latest police clip show on SKY, in the UK and they complain about the Film crew pointing a camera in their faces, the plod with the cuffs is always quick to say "They are in a public area and can film what they like!"
So it's OK to film people being man handled if the film makers are with the police (i.e. plod friendly view) rather than a member of the public shooting a normal daily scene...
Orwell would be spinning in his grave if he didn't see this coming.....
Think about it!
How many licences of Vista has Microsoft sold to vendors and the public?
Compare that to how many actually keep Vista on their PC before "Upgrading" to XP or Linux?
Basically Microsoft is getting people to buy a product they know people will not use!
Marketing man's wet dream! :D:D
genius is say.. pure genius :)
a UK traveller with his encrypted laptop gets his laptop taken. He refuses to give his password and sent back home.
The US tell the UK about your laptop and ask the Met to get the password for them..
A few day's later the police knock at his door saying they want to have a chat about your laptop and it's password.
If you refuse you get locked up for a few years and labelled a terrorist......
Mine is the one with the padded insides and padded envelopes
a PFY's wages that, in the rush to gain control back, some SysAdmin opened the network with the password he gave and let some script kiddies in....
Either that or the SF Mayor will be getting an email from some Russian guy saying:
"All you're passwords are belonging to us! You give 100,000 of you're American dollars to us. We give you good working password. p.s. you want to buy the Viagra?"
"At the official launch, the company told journalists that 'Microsoft has been a longstanding supporter of Asus' to explain the price discrepancy. And — get this — only the XP-based machine will be sold at mass-market retailers, while the Linux-based model will be consigned to computer stores."
So the XP version is going on sale in the big stores! While the Linux version is stuck in the small independent retailers.....
One of those ink re-filler Syringes a bottle of your fave fizzy drink (Irn-Bru for me)
Fill the syringe and pierce the "air hole" and fill the insides with the drink. wait a few hours or so and drain. The Fizzy drink has eaten some of the surface of the platters, and the sticky gunk makes the drive motors useless.
Heck see what those drinks can do to your teeth! :-\ :-/
But Thermite or Pick-Axe are better stress busting way's to go.....
To be honest.
Why go to the bother of wiping a comp or playing about with encryption...
All you need to do is have a secure file that stores the SSH links to your company Servers..
Don't pack a laptop.
Go to the US pick up an EEEPc mini laptop thingies ( the one with the cute bird on the beach in the advertising pics) for a couple of hundred bucks (the price a of a good night out plus tips for the stripper) on the company card... use it to work on the linux OS with SSH while in the US. when you are about to fly home. Fed-Ex the laptop home it's light enough to be cheep...
So you don't have a laptop when catching your plane :D:D
