This is a close call, but I conclude that Feldman's act of production, which would necessarily require his using a password of some type to decrypt the storage device, would be tantamount to telling the government something it does not already know with "reasonably particularity"

I'm guessing this is the trick. The government doesn't know there is evidence on the storage device. It sounds like they are making the argument that compelling a password for discovery purposes is a violation, but providing one to give them what they know you have is not. At least, that's what it seems like they are saying to me.


+ - Intel Demos Next Gen Haswell GT-3 Graphics and Clover Trail Power Consumption->

MojoKid writes "Representatives from Intel at CES were touting the low power characteristics of their current Clover Trail Atom processors that are featured in a number of Windows 8 tablets. Intel apparently is on a mission to rebut the notion that ARM-based processors are more power efficient. In one demo, Intel wired up a number of sensors to the batteries on a quartet of tablets to monitor power consumption in real-time. Two of the tablets (a Samsung ATIV and Dell XPS 10) were built around Qualcomm Krait-based SoCs, one (a Microsoft Surface RT) featured NVIDIA’s Tegra 3, and there was an Acer W510 built on Intel’s Clover Trail Atom. The demo showed the Tegra 3 Surface RT tablet clearly consuming the most the power, with the Clover Trail and Krait-based systems much more tightly grouped. The Clover Trail-based tablet was consuming the least power within the particular Youtube HD video workload shown. In another demo, Intel had a blind taste test of sorts, with two systems set up side by side, running Dirt 3 in DX11 mode at the same image quality settings. One system featured an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650, while the other was powered by an Intel Haswell-based Core processor with integrated GT-3 graphics. Haswell’s GT-3 graphics engine reportedly offers 2X the performance of Ivy Bridge HD 4000 graphics, along with additional features. In the demo, both machines easily produced smooth frame rates and shared nearly indistinguishable image quality."

+ - NIH neuroscientists: Junior Seau had brain disease caused by hits to the head->

McGruber (1417641) writes "ABC News/ESPN broke the story that a team of scientists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) analyzed the brain tissue of renowned NFL linebacker Junior Seau and have concluded that the football player suffered a debilitating brain disease likely caused by two decades worth of hits to the head.

In May 2012, Seau, 43 — football's monster in the middle, a perennial all-star and defensive icon in the 1990s whose passionate hits made him a dominant figure in the NFL — shot himself in the chest at his home in Oceanside, Calif., leaving behind four children and many unanswered questions.

As slashdot earlier reported (, more than 30 NFL players have in recent years been diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a condition once known as "punch drunk" because it affected boxers who had taken multiple blows to the head. Last year, 4,000 retired players joined a class-action lawsuit against the league over its alleged failure to protect players from brain injuries."

Youtube videos are just crap - gotta load them hit play and THEN hit pause and let the rest download and then hit play again AFTER they download completely because otherwise, it just starts and stops.

I don't know WTF it is. Is Netlfix buffering that much better or is Youtube shitty?

Youtube is just shitty sometimes.
