Bug

+ - Google Groups search ... still broken->

Submitted by b0s0z0ku
b0s0z0ku (752509) writes "For the past month or more, searching for any phrase on the Google Groups website has yielded only the first page of results with no convenient way to navigate to subsequent pages. The page bar on the bottom of the screen has gone missing. Despite this bug being reported to Google by multiple people, Google has not seen fit to fix it in a timely manner. This humble poster wonders if Google Groups is being maintained at all, and by whom?"

+ - Major problems with two financial websites

Submitted by b0s0z0ku
b0s0z0ku (752509) writes "As of 16:30EST today, the Bank of America website is down, and has been down for most of the day. Nasdaq.com is reporting completely different data from Scottrade and my iPhone, and the data on Nasdaq.com appears to be bogus (markets do not fluctuate repeatedly and immediately like that).

Both screenshots were taken 10 minutes ago. Could this be a sign of a cyberattack against US financial institutions?"

+ - Apple limits iPhones to 2 per person, rejects cash

Submitted by b0s0z0ku
b0s0z0ku (752509) writes "Citing concerns about availability for the holidays, Apple is now limiting iPhone purchases to two per person (at least at Apple stores) and only accepting credit card payments in order to create a record of who bought the phones. Could this possibly be their attempt to control the market for unlocked iPhones now that the 1.1.1 firmware has been cracked? Naaw, never."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - On the Internet, no one knows you're a ... 1

b0s0z0ku (752509) writes " Crazy story from Wired about IM's and who people really are. Two people start an online relationship. She thinks that he's a 20 year old Marine. He thinks that she's a 17 yo girl from West Virginia. His co-worker is also dating her online, BTW, and it all comes to a bad end. Will we be seeing a bad movie about all this in a year?"
Windows

+ - RIP Outlook Express

Submitted by b0s0z0ku
b0s0z0ku (752509) writes "According to this Computerworld story, Outlook Express is due to be end-of-lifed and replaced with Windows Live Mail in XP or Windows Mail in Vista. Am I the only one who's used Windows Live Mail and thought that the interface was awfully cluttered? Does it do newsgroups? And will this be pushed on users like IE 7, so people will see their mail client change overnight?"
