1. Password written on a sticky note placed under the keyboard.
2. Password on a strip of paper taped over on the palm-rest of a laptop.
Perfectly good way to manage your passwords when you're in Burnt Scrotum, New Mexico and your opponent is in Pudong, China.
So why is this on slashdot exactly? This site is supposed to be about the tech itself, not the financial problems of the people behind it.
Treating this like "Shuttleworth's problem" is losing sight of the big picture. The SA government is desperate to prevent money leaving the country, because if it was easy to get out, a significant chunk of the population would (SA, particularly in the large cities, is not a fun place to live). They may have eliminated the apartheid-era controls, but they've introduced far stricter ones to prevent capital flight from the country. Shuttleworth's case is just one of the more visible ones, there are huge numbers of people who would leave if they could get their money out.
You should try my Appchain app. It apps all your apps into one app. It even apps its own app into the app.
Yeah, but does it tech the tech? Everyone knows you need to be able to tech the tech to the warp drive to fix serious problems.
The article starts with a picture that suggests it replaces the Esc key. (I can hear your screams of shock and pain from here.)
You're right. Initially I thought it was up in the uselss-wank row of keys that vendors like to put above the function keys, but it does appear to be replacing the Esc key. Assuming they then follow the Lenovo Carbon Gen 2 model of keyboard braindamage which is... well it's hard to describe in words, see for yourself (yes, someone actually did that on purpose, which is why you can buy Gen 2's on eBay for much less than the older Gen 1's), there'll be a quick subsequent release of a Model n+1 that undoes it all again.
nobody wants a fullscreen IM app. that's the problem.
Well, except tablet users...
You've asked all of them, I suppose?
I use Skype on a tablet, and I want it as a background app so I can chat while I'm doing other stuff. I don't want it taking over the entire screen, or doing anything else more significant than a notification area icon to tell me it's still running.
Without America, TPP is dead, but there will likely be a new free trade agreement to replace it, anchored on China, rather than America.
That's because China sees a trade agreement as being about trade and making money, not a means of furthering the global agendas of whichever megacorporations pay the people writing it the most money. I'm from a country that has a free trade agreement with China, negotiated openly and available for anyone to check (heck, there's even a web site set up to tell you all you need to know), that basically says "you sell us your stuff, we sell you ours, the rest is up to you". That's a free trade agreement, not the stuff US corporations are trying to force on the world.
I think it's a sign that there's something seriously wrong when people are requesting a regular release cadence to fix all the security holes in the software that's supposed to be protecting them from security problems...
They have a wind farm in Wellington. It's called West Wind.
That's Wellington's secondary wind farm. The primary wind farm is called The Beehive.
Seems they should track down the source of any possible hardware infections before replacing all hardware.

Firefox users point out that this isnâ(TM)t very user friendly, and is very unlike Mozilla.
Actually it's very like Mozilla, at least the Mozilla from the last five years or so. You sit there, you take what we give you, and you LIKE IT, dammit!
To be fair, a retrofit to fuel cells would be relatively simple, since everything on the boat runs on electricity anyway.
Well yeah, that one's simple, but what about the unicorn farts mentioned by a previous poster? Just the torque converters for that alone would be enormous, not to mention the extra whangle drums and sliding paff gongbudgers.
"How could such an advanced culture have staged such bloody spectacles?"
Nowadays we do it with drones and remote cameras.
