It should be GNU, not Debian. Glibc is very much a GNU project. How do people not know GlibC is a GNU project?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The idea behind the "Stringent SSL verification process" is that customers will pay a brand-name-trusted CA company to verify the SSL request is from who they claim to be.
Even at *TEN THOUSAND* USD/EUR/GBP/etc per fake certificate, the price is too good for countries like Iran, China, etc for engaging in MITM attacks.
The whole process is a scam outright....
.... and have him help them optimize their ROM images and the experience presented. Lets hope they don't hire him to help them lock down their ROMs, bootloaders, etc some more
Think about it, who else would be better at locking things down than the guy who defeats such locks all the time?
MacOS classic had co-operative multitasking, and yes, it sucked. It sucked hard. It was a huge technical reason to dump the classic stuff and go with OS-X.
With the impending crApple litigation, one could assume that arming themselves with some "patent investments" would be top priority for HTC.
That being said, I think HTC is fine making phones for Android and WM6/7/etc. In fact, I wonder if one day HTC will make Maemo/Meego phones...
... to change Apple's icon to be borg like the way Microsoft's is ?
That 1984 commercial gets more ironic by the moment.
I hope the Canadians put us on a "Special Douche Bag" list
Gotta love our ability to spit on our friends
You can buy a DS/PSP without a freaking multi-year ass-rape contract.
Buying a gaming console should never be a long term financial decision.
"Researchers at Microsoft"..."have developed"..."running embedded Linux"
Um, was that a misprint or did hell just freeze over? Hasn't MS referred to Linux as a "virus", a "cancer", "un-American", a "patent violator", and "communistic"?
Microsoft Research helped create Xen virtualization for Linux
Hell they even *ported* Windows XP to Xen 1.0
Actually, and bizarrely enough, there is a high level FreeBSD developer named Alan Cox too
Do any devices burst into flames ? You bet
Will crApple cover up anything and everything even if that means tampering with the law and/or (American) constitution ? You bet
Will crApple's fanboyz rush to its defense needlessly, dangerously, and even willing to give up personal freedoms for Steve Jobs ? You bet
The real issue is why a tax-payer funded gov't entitity can be meddled around with a company like crApple in the first place. Anyone who has ever read the Consumerist knows that the CPSC has no teeth nor balls, but this is unacceptable and ridiculous.
Basically the United States gave Russia a billion or so and tactical/technical/administrative support every year to reduce their weapons stock pile.
So even when Bush and Putin had their panties bunched up, great work was being done cooperatively by both sides. The program considered pretty successful by government standards.
I know, I know, the idea of good news from government is a scary one!
What am I missing here ?
Will Groklaw one day be reporting about MSFT v. SPI ?
Here goes another few hundred million
If we really believe in taxation without representation then my unborn baby should be able to vote already
That being said
Using channel 14 in the USA (and other non-channel 14 countries) can be done via a DD-WRT compatible router, and Wireless cards where you can change the CRDA to Japan (like Atheros cards that work with ath5k and ath9k on linux.)
The linux command to change your regulatory domain is:
bash# iw reg set JP
The issue with channel 14 is that it is reduced power, meaning in most cases you'll only get 802.11b speeds with it.
Now why something is critical as wifi has to exist with stupid consumer shit is the real crux of the issue
