Comment: Re:Mic? (Score 1) 175

by jayloden (#26806503) Attached to: Turning an iPod Touch Into an iPhone

I have an iPod touch, and it works just fine with the apple headphones that include a mic. I didn't want to shell out for another pair of headphones, so I use the ones that came free with my Blackberry (also includes a mic) and that works fine too. I believe the earlier generation iPod touch required an external mic attached to the dock connector but the current models can use any headphone/mic in a standard size jack.

+ - Are false positives hurting you?

Gerald writes "After the most recent Wireshark release a certain AV vendor's product started warning users that the installer contained adware. Since then, I've spent several hours verifying this isn't the case, trying to get the AV vendor to fix their stuff, and reassuring affected users that we do not ship adware with our product.

Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case. I've had to do this several times over the past few years, and each incident uses up time that could have been better spent elsewhere. It's even worse for other projects. If you produce software, have you ever suffered collateral damage from AV false positives?"

According to the article Google's response: "On Friday, Google responded to the complaints by agreeing to implement a series of measures it believes will help thwart piracy. In an afternoon conference call with studio representatives, lawyers for Google said the company would remove certain ads the companies objected to, create a list of approved advertisers and refrain from selling keywords used by rogue sites to lure users to pirated material. In addition, the Google lawyers said the company would introduce internal guidelines on monitoring keywords and train its ad sales force about how to avoid selling such ads."
