So isn't this just another one of those open/secure authentication mechanisms, which means that we're now going to have to remember an ever expanding and potentially insecure methods, instead of passwords, of identifying ourselves to various entities on teh internetz?

I RTFA too. I was expecting something completely different when they said "Peppermint OS One integrates video sites like YouTube and Hulu right into the desktop experience."

I then realized that you'd have to be pretty thick to consider a few bookmarks an "integration" of those sites into the "desktop", but clearly the author and submitter did fall for it.

The only good bit about the entire article was the pun at the end - "Peppermint OS is a breath of fresh air." Har har har!

+ - Sprint Needs a Winner: Is the WiMax HTC Evo Enough->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: Sprint will begin selling the first of two WiMax smartphones announced for this year on June 4. The Android device promises blistering download speeds for a relatively modest price, it can be a Wi-Fi hotspot, it carries two cameras, one of them with 8 megapixels, and it delivers video output at 720p on a 4.3” display. Oh, and you can use it to amke phone calls, too. The HTC Evo is smartphone overkill at its finest. The question is: Is it good enough? Do you really want a WiMax phone? Will consumers bite and finally give Sprint a glowing flagship device?

Yes, it's like when you travel to another country. You could eat some of the local food and fall sick (maybe), but once your guts are accustomed to it, you'll get better at it. TFA is simply another story in which a group of scientists have confirmed things we already know by experience.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
