This really is a sad day, those moronic scriptkiddies have won..
I really hope they can catch the persons who did this, and who made the threats. The should get life in prison if it were up to me (well actually they should just get the deathpenalty if it was really up to me)...
These morons ruined the lives of a lot of hardworking people..

And you don't think the other methods won't have the same problems? you don't think you will see printed images on monitors for the graphical 'passwords'? also with 2 factor, how many people will loose their account for the token.. (yes 2 factor is slightly more secure ofcourse, but it certainly isn't as safe/monkeyproof as some people seem to think)

How many units of each type did they test? because if they only tested one of each, you cannot make any assumptions about and can't even call it a good test.. I've seen so many different results with the same HDD's.. Or even with SDD's, where my SDD died after a couple of months, but the one of my collegue is still plowing away after 2 years (SDD's from the same batch)..

They can't even find all the living organisms on this planet or in our own solar system, or even know how our own galaxy is even created, and they think they know only 10% of all galaxies have 'complex life' as on earth? Please get real.. We're not even a spec in our own galaxy, and I'm very confidend that in our own galaxy there are more 'complex life' out there than 10%.. let alone the much MUCH bigger galaxies...

Comment: fueling time... (Score 1) 293

yeah, but by the time you have decend hydrogen stations where you can actually refill your car, the electric cars already have new batteries that have the same mileage with a fuelingtime of a few minutes.. And let's not forget, hydrogen isn't the safest fuel there is, but I would assume those tanks are safer than regular gasolinetanks...

Comment: professor? (Score 1) 455

And he calls himself a professor? I guess he's way off base..
Smarter as us doesn't mean it has to understand what it's talking about (most politicians don't know jack what they are talking about and still they 'make' the rules)..
And let's not forget, with neural networks, AI can advance much faster than a regular person, and also let's not forget, there are way more advanced projects going on in laboratories than IBM's Watson, which haven't been shown to the public.. IBM's Watson is just the tip of the iceberg..
I sometimes wonder how these "professors" got their degree, sometimes I just wonder if those positions come with a box of cereal...
