Submission + - TSA Mandates GA 'Self-Pat-Down' Program 1

countertrolling writes: In a compromise measure that attempts to balance calls for increased security in GA operations against the individual liberties of GA pilots, Pistole announced that new self-administered pat-down program would be mandatory in the very near future. Acceptance has been (at best) mixed within the GA community. While most pilots knew that enhanced steps were going to be forthcoming from TSA, as a 'necessary counter' to security threats, most complain that the new procedures go too far.

Submission + - AT&T to introduce broadband caps (dslreports.com)

rekenner writes: In the upcoming weeks, AT&T customers are going to start receiving notices that their broadband services are going to have a monthly cap, starting in May. DSL users will have a cap of 150 GB per month, while U-Verse users will have a more "generous" cap of 250 GB per month. However, unlike other caps, it won't be until your third month of overage, on the life of the account, that you'll be charged an overage. Thanks, I guess.

Submission + - Reverse Enginnering the Playstation Move (hackaday.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Hack-a-Day reader Kenn has been working hard at reverse enginnering the Playstation Move controller for use in a quadrocopter project.

He recently was able to program the controller's microchip to run arbitrary code, a big first step in the process of completely repurposing the controller. At this rate, it shouldn't be long before he has custom firmware running on the controller

Yes, but it would take the *entire* industry, inclusive of Sony, Nintendo, and MS. They refuse to allow AO games on their systems. So, it's something of a catch-22. If AO games could be proven to sell (and that the negative PR wouldn't be too bad), they might allow AO games. But that can't happen until they consider an AO game...
