Comment Property rights (Score 1) 328 328

Its hard to understand this being in the tech world. Tech world is about ideas and ideologies, but fails to see the real world for what it is (until it bites you in the a$$), which is all about property rights. I was (and still am) a die hard geek, but out of curiosity I wanted to learn about real estate after we bought our house. I thought there are so many inefficiencies that this will be something I can look to find better ways of doing that. I really wanted to do that before we bought the house, but didn't work out that way. I think every one should learn about about how real estate works before buying a house. Its an eye opener. Every war ever fought, every treaty that has been signed, and even the Habendum clause ("to have and to hold") https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habendum_clause in the marriage wows comes down to property rights. Yes, a wife was considered property, and property rights were granted along with such property! As far patents are concerned, like everything else with property rights, its all about YOUR cow crossed into my yard and ate MY grass. Now I want to be compensated.

Maybe Mozilla guys should read slashdot more often... if they /. just a couple of days agao, they would have been able to recognize a business opportunity http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/03/10/1942232 Now, could I be the one to have brokered this deal and collect a few million$?

'Greasemonkey' Malware Targets Firefox 370 370

snydeq writes "Researchers have discovered a new type of malware that collects passwords for banking sites but targets only Firefox. The malware, dubbed 'Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A,' sits in Firefox's add-ons folder, registering itself as 'Greasemonkey,' the well-known collection of scripts that add functionality to Web pages rendered by Firefox. The malware uses JavaScript to identify more than 100 financial and money transfer Web sites, including PayPal, collecting logins and passwords, which it forwards to a server in Russia. Trojan infection can occur via drive-by download or download duping."
