Better yet, just logged into my ebay acct. and there's NOTHING in the communications there either.

Slashdot, now with less actual news and information, but nearly 100% sensational!

I understand reading is hard so I highlighted the important parts for you.

eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) said beginning later today it will be asking eBay users to change their passwords because of a cyberattack that compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data.

Because, when it comes to car commercials, ad agencies are bound by so many rules and regulations regarding depictions of reckless driving and such things that it becomes almost impossible tp create a cool car commercial without running the risk of going to court over it (both the ad agency AND car manufacturer).

What the hell are you talking about.... I just watched a car commercial where a woman jumped on top of a moving train with a car.

"22%? um 2.25% as an opening bid with the normal ending point of 1.2% or 0% depending on cross licensing agreements. At no point was there a 22% offer on the table.

MSFT revenue for 2012 is 17.41 billion
Motorola had demanded Microsoft pay annual royalties of up to $4 billion

4 / 17.41 = 0.22975 = 22.975%

So either RIM feels they should have this, or they're really stupid.

There is no reason to send your email credentials to RIM ... the local device needs it, but I can't think of a single defensible reason to send your credentials to their servers.

Why do companies feel they're entitled to this kind of information? Pretty much everyone who owns a BlackBerry should be asking if they can really trust the device.

Looks like you have no clue how RIM e-mail works on Blackberries. Just copy and pasting a quick summary on how their e-mail system works. "Unlike other PDAs, the BlackBerry device does not log into your email account for you, and check for new messages. This pull type email is best related to having a Post Office box. It requires physical action on your part to go and check your mail. You have to get up, drive in your car to the PO Box location, open it up, check for new mail, get back in your car, and drive home. All this time you are expending time and energy. What happens if you are unable to check the box due to the store/post office being closed? You have to wait until the next chance you get, and then check. As you can see this is not a very time/energy efficient way of doing things.

On the other hand, if you had someone to bring your mail to you, a Postal worker wouldn’t that be a better alternative? All you have to do is sit at home and when the mail arrives you have it. No need to do anything, no need to go anywhere else. This is how the BlackBerry architecture works." (Example From

For a site apparently loaded with Computer professionals its astounding how many here do not know how BlackBerry e-mail works.

You really should consider eBay if you are looking for a decent monitor. I picked up a 27 inch 2560 x 1440 for $265 that uses a Samsung IPS LED panel. Search for QX2710. I got mine shipped straight from South Korea. The bezel and the circuit are of low quality but the actual LED panel is the same as Apple Cinema Monitors. The monitor lacks certain features HDMI port for example and it only uses DVI and you need a high end video card as the monitor needs a video card to do the conversion. But for the $265 that I paid I think this was a complete steal and worth it so far.

The world is not octal despite DEC.
