Comment Not Google's Fault (Score 1) 639

I wonder if everyone realizes that it wasn't Google that designed the packaging, but likely they just designed the artwork on the outside.

As for the box itself, it seems that a packaging engineer just got their fit between the two halves a little too tight... it's not like they put it in heat-welded clamshell packaging!

FDA: Software Failure Behind 24% of Last Year's Medical Device Recalls 128

chicksdaddy writes "Software failures were behind 24 percent of all the medical device recalls in 2011, according to data from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories (OSEL). The absence of solid architecture and 'principled engineering practices' in software development affects a wide range of medical devices, with potentially life-threatening consequences, the FDA warned. In response, FDA told Threatpost that it is developing tools to disassemble and test medical device software and locate security problems and weak design."

Comment Ghost the drive... (Score 0) 143

Simply ghost the drive after a full (clean) install, and have her save the important files to a specific directory that you can have task scheduler back up once/day or on bootup if she turns the machine off when she's not using it (my mother leaves hers on all the time).

If she screws something up, nuke the main drive/partition, throw the original image back over it, and everything is good again. Unless she gets something *extremely* militant, it should work perfectly.
