R2D2 simply refuses to speak anything other than astromech droid because he's elitist/racist/facist. Same goes for all the astromech droids. Every time they tried to fix the 'bug' they'd get a droid that sabatoges shit instead of fix it so they gave up. Now go rewatch the original trilogy enlightened. If we could understand them it would probably be a never-ending stream of rants on how george lucas fucks up every computer related scene in his movies.

How about video of people being murdered in Lybia, you sicko? In all seriousness, I know it's newsworthy but nobody wants to watch stuff like this. I didn't hit play on any of these but if the captions are at all accurate: EXTREMELY NSFW

This exploit reveals your passwords to a website that you visit (although I have not RTFA), which is a bit different.

The slashvertized tool does not send passwords to a website. It reveals passwords to you when you run the tool locally. This is not news.

At the risk of putting this company out of business here's a 'cracker' for passwords stored by most browsers.
