I'll keep denying until somebody can explain to me why going in and out of ice ages wasn't manmade, but now we should freak out and spend billions over 1 or 2 degrees of "manmade" "climate change" over the last hundred years (when it has been going back down for the last 15 years straight).

Basically, they tried to put an unlimited iPad SIM card in a PC. They disassembled the driver to find out how it authorized them and realized that there was no security, it just went to a hidden website. They went to the website and it didn't work but then they changed their agent string in their browser to impersonate an iPad. At that point, it showed him his account information. After that, they just incremented the number up and down and realized that it showed them EVERYONE'S account information.

The people that left their coins sitting on Mt. Gox's servers instead of getting them off immediately? Yes, those people are unusually stupid.

The people that are buying Lambroghinis ( ), apartments ( ) and even castles in Estonia ( ) for mere pennies on the dollar don't seem very stupid.

Karpeles IS unusually stupid (OK, let's say arrogant and naive). He claimed to have lost 2,000,000 bitcoins until people looked at the PUBLIC blockchain and found that he had previously had access to accounts where some of the "missing" bitcoins were still sitting. Then, all of a sudden, when the Japanese court threatened him with arrest, he was suddenly able to "find" and produce them.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
