+ - Tor Exit Nodes Located and Mapped->

Submitted by
Itsik
Itsik writes "Tor Exit Nodes are the gateways where encrypted Tor traffic hits the Internet. This means an exit node can be abused to monitor Tor traffic (after it leaves the onion network). It is in the design of the Tor network that locating the source of that traffic through the network should be difficult to determine. However if the exit traffic is unencrypted and contains identifying information then an exit node can be abused.
The torproject therefore is dependent on a diverse and wide range of exit nodes. This is an attempt to display the exit nodes diversity in a Google map with Geolocation. The map was built using Google Maps API v3, with Marker Clusterer."

I recall over the summer reading a piece in the Wall Street Journal (http://blogs.wsj.com/atwork/2012/07/13/working-from-home-beware-a-career-hit/?mod=e2tw)
Pointing to the fact that telecommuters aka people that work remotely are less likely to get promoted regardless of their productivity and work ethic.

Quite alarming

+ - Cross-platform iPhone/Android/RIM apps made easy->

Submitted by ruphus13
ruphus13 (890164) writes "The iPhone has been wildly successful with the developer community, and Android and RIM are working aggressively to do the same. However, developers still have to port applications for each platform, and so they often end up choosing one. Until now. PhoneGap is an Open Source project looking to address this issue, and allow developers to crank out cross-platform applications extremely quickly and easily. From the article, "PhoneGap is an open source development tool for building fast, easy mobile apps with JavaScript. If you're a web developer who wants to build mobile applications in HTML and JavaScript while still taking advantage of the core features in the iPhone, Android and Blackberry SDKs, PhoneGap is for you...The creators of PhoneGap think it's nonsense that developers have to write the same app in several different programming languages to reach the widest swath of mobile phone customers, so they developed an open source, cross-platorm framework that bridges the gaps among them.""
