What about various chrome extensions that have superfish embeded inside them?

A while ago, flash video downloader was one, not sure if it still there... http://download.cnet.com/FVD-D...

Google, do a better job, terminate all accounts to anyone using superfish.

CNET are fuckwits too, stop serving malware, they should be raided by the FBI now.

Do what google says, or they will make your govt and country invisible on the neti, get no tourists.

Aussie taxies suck too btw.

Useless and OVER PRICED.

Charging so called night rates up to 9am. Thats FRAUD, its NOT NIGHT time between 6am and 9am.

They just classify it as expensive night rates, to sting all business travelers in the mornings.

I call the taxi regulators fraudsters.

please mark flash as spyware, please kill flash!!!!

Any business that still wants programmers to make apps in flash are stupid, HULU, please recode your apps.

Besides Flash/Flex, AS, just purely suck as a language, utter putrid crap.

Please make all firewalls block flash.

Make firefox not even accept flash plugins, ban it , black list it.

Comment: USBs are smuggled like cocain in NK (Score 0) 288

Yes up your butthole, or swallowed.

But data is being sneaker netted everywhere in NK, there are docos to show how they do it.

How do they get it in? Well, even the ones in the military smuggle stuff in, actually, they are the ones most often with the money and friends outside who can do it.

Eventually, it trickles down to the ultra poor, who might want that USB stick more desperately than food, it at least can be copied/traded for food.

There are a few cities that are one side china, one side NK. I am sure they have smuggled 3G devices in so people in NK can download from China. Put USBs on drones or baloons, or floated.

Comment: Re:Is SONY breaking the law with this "defense"? (Score 2) 190

Sony execs have been sacking lots of writers/artists/3d anims just to save another $100m, and yet they are still making $600m per $1000m spent on movies. They dont need to make MORE profits.

The execs of sony are greedy scum that want nothing but 100000000% profits, based on zero expenses for zero effort on their behalf.

Just use the new method of bouncing 80% of light in between the windows layers, and have the photocell detectors at the edge of the windows.

1. reduced heat inside home, built in tinting.
2. transparent windows that create power.

Works no matter what angle.

All the evidence concerning the universe has not yet been collected, so there's still hope.
