dr00g911, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?

He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, almost 100 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to corporations. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Corporate infiltration, Corporate indoctrination, Corporate subversion and the international Corporate conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

This is a VERY old diagram. It shows how the design was intended 3 years ago.

If your going to cite diagrams, use one from the actual product. http://audivolv.com/emotivEpocMindReadingHelmet.jpg

As for previous comments on "conductive goo", the emotive epoc uses felt pads with a saline solution for conductivity. If you will notice, the owner and lead researchers are both women with thick, long hair and they have no problems using the device.

Linux support is in the works (Read: Drivers are under development); however, since their target is gamers, this is not their priority at the moment.

+ - British Village Requests Removal from GPS Maps-> 6

Submitted by
longacre
longacre writes "The tiny village of Barrow Gurney, England has asked GPS map publisher Tele Atlas to remove them from the company's maps. The reason: truck drivers using GPS navigation devices are being directed to drive through the town despite the roads being too narrow for sidewalks, and causing numerous accidents. At the root of the problem lies the fact that the navigation maps used by trucks are the same as those used by passenger cars, which don't contain data on road width or no truck zones. Tele Atlas says they will release truck-appropriate databases at some point, but until then they advise local governments to make use of a technology dating back to the Romans: road signs."

+ - Sen McCain's MySpace page gets hacked

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?com mand=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9014483&intsrc=hm_ list Visitors to Sen. John McCain's MySpace page were likely surprised today by a statement that the Senator has reversed his position on gay marriage and "come out in full support of gay marriage ... particularly marriage between passionate females." Most won't be surprised that the statement was apparently posted as a prank. The co-founder of an online news site, who said he designed the MySpace template used for McCain's page, claimed responsibility for changing the site . Mike Davidson, cofounder of Newsvine, said on his Web site that he commandeered the MySpace page because McCain's office used a design template of his without providing him credit. Davidson also said his imagery was used on the page and his server is used serve up McCain's MySpace images."

Software Deletes Files to Defend Against Piracy 544

teamhasnoi writes "Back in 2004, we discussed a program that deleted your home directory on entry of a pirated serial number. Now, a new developer is using the same method to protect his software, aptly named Display Eater. In the developers's own words, 'There exist several illegal cd-keys that you can use to unlock the demo program. If Display Eater detects that you are using these, it will erase something. I don't know if this is going to become Display Eater policy. If this level of piracy continues, development will stop.'"

CazazzaKid (666) writes "The band Nine Inch Nails have been running an Alternate Reality Game called "Year Zero" to promote their upcoming album. As part of the campaign, they have distributed MP3s of songs from the album, containing hidden codes that can be used as clues in the game. A German fan, who helped distribute the intentionally leaked music on his blog, has now received a ceise and desist order from Universal, as well as a $670 fine."

Infoworld reports about the efforts of Polish researcher Michael Zalewski, who apparently kept finding new vulnerabilities in the popular browser on a daily basis through the month, first postponing the 2.0.0.2 update, and then finding a remotely exploitable flaw in it immediately after its release."
