New .secure Internet Domain On Tap 129

CowboyRobot writes "A new top-level domain (TLD) in the works for the Internet will bake security in from the outset: The .secure domain will require fully encrypted HTTPS sessions and a comprehensive vetting process for websites and their operators. If the new domain takes off, it could shift the way Web domains are secured. ICANN is expected to sign off on .secure, and for the new TLD to be up and running June or July 2013."

The short story Double-Take by Winston K. Marks covers the concept, although in there it was in a theatre as an evolution of 3D movies, where one viewer could watch a movie from the male lead's perspective, and the other from the female lead's perspective.

The story was written in 1953. Is that prior art enough? You can check here a bit over half-way down for the story.

You can get onto Netflix to browse by trying to log in once, and letting it tell you PSN is under maintenance, but it won't let you actually watch anything without logging on to PSN. :P


Internet Downloading Costs To Rise In Canada 433

An anonymous reader writes "According to CBC News, 'Surfing and downloading from the internet is about to get more expensive for many Canadians as internet companies Shaw and Primus have announced plans to impose new fees and caps on internet usage. Over the past year, the CRTC, Canada's communication regulator, let Bell and Rogers start charging extra for customers who download a lot of data. ... Primus and Shaw have said they will begin passing on higher fees to their customers beginning Feb. 1. Primus, for example, rents bandwidth on Bell's networks and said Bell is inflating the costs for everyone, including them. 'It's an economic disincentive for internet use,' said Matt Stein, vice-president of network services for Primus. 'It's not meant to recover costs. In fact these charges that Bell has levied are many, many, many times what it costs to actually deliver it.'"

I think you meant to respond to The Snowman... But either way, he wasn't saying you got your definitions wrong, but that you got the direction wrong... NIPR -> SIPR has always been just fine (although the media, once connected to the SIPR side, is no longer allowed to be attached to the NIPR side) but SIPR -> NIPR has never been allowed...
