I saw that episode.
Wow! That sure is an unexpected application of a new super-tensile material.
No government would want to trust their TLD (on which relies the entire country's infrastructure and economy) to a foreign country that interferes with it. Once that can of worms is opened, you'd probably end up with each country hosting their own alternative root and mandating their ISPs either default to using it or being able to fail over to it quickly when necessary.
But for one simple payment or $100,000, you can pre-purchase your batteries for the next 500 billion years!
Unity's equivalent to Metro tiles
I don't know if this is a joke, because when I install Ubuntu these days I kill Unity and replace it with Gnome before doing anything else. But I sure hope so.

Yeah, but if you're using a smartphone at all, you'd need expert knowledge to protect your anonymity from it (rooting, etc.). The authenticator app doesn't require network access though (it's basically a time-synchronized security token, afaik), so it might be possible to port it to some non-connected device.
Funny that ebola has been in existence in the modern world since the 70s, yet only now this is coming to light. Oddly enough, this is perfectly timed with someone in the US getting infected.
"Shit, this is on OUR turf now!??! Better do something about it!"
This is not "only now coming to light"; it's just that you couldn't be bothered to read about it until it was spelled out in a Slashdot headline. People didn't start working on this last week. I'm not sure how fast you think medical research works.
I shall be referring this matter to the German police.
