So he identified the vulnerability by diffing the patch against the original? Seems like a pretty obvious investigative step, as in it's one of the first things you'd want to look at if GM isn't telling you what they changed in the ignition switch. Diffing software security patches to identify vulnerable code is standard practice. I guess the GM thing is maybe interesting since it's mechanical hardware, though investigators in things like fraudulent aircraft parts have been diffing hardware for years.

A 727 was stolen in 2003 and has never been found: Wiki
Here's what pictures from satellites look like at 1:00 a.m. over water: Picture
It's just a grid of cores on the chip layout. Nothing wrong with a grid that's 3x5. A 2-dimensional grid does not force the number of cores to be a power of 2.
Plus it makes one think of breasts.
Oh, the Sears Wishbook. Two things every growing boy needed, a toys section, and an intimate apparel section.
Welp, I don't normally respond to a cynical mod-down, but I'm dead serious with this one.
So if you're so pissed off by my statement that you feel the need to hit Underrated in the popdown, maybe you're not laid back enough for such recreational activity.
"Underrated" means that they were modding you up, not down. The mod down is called "Overrated".
The simple English Wikipedia doesn't try to simplify scientific concepts any more than the regular English Wikipedia. It just uses basic words chosen from a small vocabulary set (when possible), and simple sentence construction. It's meant as an aid for people learning the English language. It's not going to help you understand complex physics topics like the one you mentioned.
You need to parse the title as "(Simple English) Wikipedia", not as "Simple (English Wikipedia)".
Are you surprised? This has been MS's strategy for the better part of a decade. Try to compete on vapor rather than on what's shipping. A competitor announces that they're shipping, say, a new MacBook, and MS will announce that they've got something flashy and new about to come out. When it finally ships two and a half years later, it's a POS nowhere close to what MS claimed it was going to be.
Remember everything that MS said was going to be in Vista?
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you didn't RTFA...
You should look up Stephanie Forrest's research. She's been doing things like that for the past 20 years. To give you an idea, she has a mid-90's paper called "A Sense of Self for UNIX Processes".
It's funny how if a group is *actually* powerful, you never see them making claims that they're powerful. Their actions say more than words.
Anonymous are just poseurs. Not only are they poseurs on world-scale power, they're poseurs on computer hacking, all they know how to do is run DoS attacks. They're an embarrassment.
Purchasing price probably dropped a bit. Good time to get a deal.
And the counterexample to that is the TU-144 crash in Paris, the aircraft did not rebound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpPaaP1IIe8
Aeroflot's an airline, not an aircraft manufacturer. Aeroflot flies mostly Boeing and Airbus today.
I believe they were trying to show off, and here's why I think that. One of the news sites had a video (looked like Google Earth) showing where the plane took off, and where it crashed. The mountain it crashed into is this really isolated and abrupt thing sticking way up out of lower elevation terrain. It was very clear from that imagery that the plane took off and made a bee line for those scenic mountains for impressive views for those on board. I think the pilot tried to do a close fly by and did not realize just how steep that mountain was (it is practically vertical where the plane impacted).
So it's a repeat of the Italian captain driving his cruise ship onto a reef.
