Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I've invested way too much time to movies and books to not see laser communications, to at the very least, to the moon in my lifetime. There are many authors that have enjoyed my 25 cents or less of royalties they received that should finally be vindicated by including laser based communications in their books!

The last couple of guys who did the election fraud thing... Got to be president.
And this one goes to jail?
Talk about double standards...
I guess his mistake was he was smalltime.. You have to go HUGE if you're going into crime. Then you're too big to fail!
Where is your proof of that claim that there was election fraud in the last presidential election? Once again some AC spouting crap with nothing to back it up. Let me guess, you read it on Facebook so it must be true.
Yet another American deprived of his right to a trial. No doubt they would have tried to send him to prison for a decade or more if he decided to exercise his rights.
A year in prison is probably a fair outcome if the story is as described. But he deserves to have a jury decide that, and not face absurd amounts of time in prison if he wants a jury trial.
He chose not to fight the charges. He was not deprived of his right to a trial. He could of plead not guilty. How about maybe he felt bad about what he did and actually plead guilty because he is in fact guilty. Maybe he decided to actually take personal responsibility for his actions and acknowledge in a court of law that what he did was wrong. Since your not his lawyer all you can do is speculate on his reasons for pleading guilty.
The interesting question... is Hetzner sloppy about security, more so than it's competitors, or are they actually more vigilant and/or more forthcoming about breaches? I have the uncomfortable hunch that we do not hear about a lot of breaches at all the cloud sevices/hosters out there.
My real fear is that it's not because of willful lack of reporting of the breeches, but that the breeches are going on completely undetected that we aren't hearing more about them.
Sony's attitude is just a symptom of what is effecting much of big business throughout the world. They are too afraid to take the risk needed to stay the top of their respective industries. Sony should be embracing the Internet and see it as a great opportunity to grow their business and provide an outstanding service and product to its customers. Instead they see it a roadblock. Something they need to control or hamper so they can continue to do business as they see fit instead of in the manner their customers demand. -Seranfall
