Here's where I see a pointer to an array on the stack getting passed around: In the openssl-1.0.1f release, in ssl/d1_pkt.c in the function dtls1_dispatch_alert(), at line 1731 "buf" is declared as a local array of chars. At line 1758 a call is made to do_dtls1_write() where the third argument is the address of this array is passed. In that function you'll see this pointer being assigned to a field to a heap alloc'd variable. But maybe this is dead code so it's never reached, but there are no comments.
I glanced at some of the OpenSSL C code, in particular the new code that introduced this bug. No comments, no asserts, no cross-checks, stupid variable names (like "payload" for the size of the payload, "pl" for a pointer to the payload data), no suggestions for how to test this new feature (such as what if the request has the payload size field that's not the same as the actual payload). In an unrelated function I saw an array declared on the stack, getting filled up, and then a pointer to this array getting assigned to a field of an argument to this function, and then a return...
But I thought even if you are found innocent in a criminal trial you could then be tried in a civil trial, which is what happened to this guy, and could also happen in the US.
In a quick skim of the patent I didn't see a definition of mood, so can almost any user tracking be considered mood inference? Suppose I bought something yesterday at Amazon, then something similar today, now if Amazon raises the prices for me on similar items tomorrow - is that an infringement because Amazon detected that I'm in the "mood" to buy similar items?
If you look at wireless signal strength maps like this http://www.datasync.com/~rsf1/cell-air.htm you will see there are gaps in vertical coverage - where there's no signal. So I don't see how even any special equipment in planes can work with such low signal levels. (The old airfones used a different communication connection)
I thought there's little or no signal strength at 10,000 feet above ground level, wireless antennas are designed for ground coverage, not reaching anything in the sky.
(yes I saw it somewhere else)

Except if you ask New Jersey drivers, they will all tell you they are the worst.
There's really no alternative to Windows for most desktop and laptop usage, and there are "apps" to hide or disable the silly touch UI in Win so that the reasonable Win 7 UI can be used. Trying to use Linux on a laptop or desktop in a real work environment is a deadend, and Macs are a niche - so what's left?
That would be something most people might not be able to do consistently - and when someone begins to daydream?
I thought a gate that can be crashed through by emergency fire vehicles was OK to block a road. The gate has a lock for you, and should be enough to keep out unwanteds, but any firetruck would knock it down without blinking.
