Twitter Trends exploited to promote scareware

How hard can it be?

How difficult can it be to grammatically detect coordinated tweets which contain links to malicious websites?

Too hard.

PH -- because she likes it too hard.

Google cancels anti-eBay bash

Monopolies commision

Certainly in the UK it would be a case for the monopolies commission as eBay are denying the users freedom to use their competitors. Obviously this could be complete nonsense as it's only a gut feeling! I always thought PayPal was a decent system until the case when I saw a payment arrive in my account so I sent off a Mac Mini to the buyer, only to find the payment "Reversed" by PayPal. If the buyer had not been so honest I could have been in real trouble. I would rather use Google's payment portal than eBay's any time.

Microsoft demos mind-bending photo app

MS vs MAC = yawn

This development is truly astounding and I think a lot of people are getting bogged down in the usual slating of Microsoft rather than seeing the massive innovation that has happened here. Imagine being able to harness this technology yourself to give people virtual tours of your construction project, or taking thousands of photographs of an African village to encourage people to donate to charity. There are ALWAYS going to be occasions when people want to allow someone to visit a location, but for one reason or another the person cannot attend in person.
