SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

In Windows Server 2003 and later versions, Http.sys is the kernel mode driver that handles HTTP requests.
WHY is there a kernel mode driver for HTTP? That's literally begging for security holes.
Needs a followup detailing what exactly was done to tamper with the system, but I don't suppose that's likely given the nature of the system in question.
Maybe if Adobe fixed this, there wouldn't be so many success Flash-based attacks.
The filesystem is also completely proprietary. http://hitmen.c02.at/files/yag... has a description of GameCube discs; http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wii_Di... has Wii discs. (Wii discs are similar to GameCube, but it supports multiple partitions and offsets are multiples of 4 in order to address a full 8 GB dual-layer DVD using 32-bit values.)
The reason why most people think GameCube and Wii discs are written "backwards" is because the disc mastering tools deliberately pad the beginning of the disc with filler data in order to push the actual data towards the outer edge of the disc. This is because the CAV drives used in GameCube and Wii are able to read data faster if they're closer to the outer edge.
The fact that PS4 only has HDMI doesn't mean it's not possible to get HD using other video interfaces.
18) Introduced touch controls on a console controller Mobile gaming has clearly had some form of influence over the latest generation of consoles, and it’s most evident with the PS4’s DualShock 4, which includes a touchpad on the face for swiping and pointing with your fingers, and who knows what else in the future.
Yes, PS4 was the first console with touch controls on the controller. There definitely wasn't a system released a year before with a controller based around a 6" touchscreen. Definitely not.
innovations like the second screen PocketStation
Not only was PocketStation released after Sega's VMU, it doesn't even function as a second screen. Both devices plug into the memory card slot, but while the Dreamcast's memory card slot is in the controller (which makes the screen usable while playing games), the PlayStation's memory card slot is in the console.
Nice try attempting to rewrite history in Sony's favor.
