When they used an "electron microscope" to look at a "petri dish" and watch a virus grow "in real time" I was doubled over in the theater in pain trying not to cry out too loud at the absurd stupidity of that scene! I cried!!!
ConnectBot can open a port that your application can tunnel through. What I really want is a way to tunnel the browser and maybe even email on my android for when I am using a public insecure wifi point, but I haven't run across anything even remotely close....

Fascinating attempt at a story... If it contained anything substantial like a fact, I might actually believe it!
Of course, citing a single source from T-Mobile, which is obviously very unbiased, really lends a lot of credibility to the "story"!
PharmaReady has a DMS system that should be able to do what you ask provided you have the webserver available outside your intranet. Instead of passing documents via email, authorized users would upload them themselves and then pass a link. The system is designed with FDA regulations in mind and keeps an audit trail of all activities and has well defined users and user permissions.
This is the same situation as in the American Biotech industry. Most companies are small with high burn rates and the whole industry is built around squeezing every bit of time and energy out of employees and then discarding them. Its easy to just say, "Get another job" but its not always that easy. Some of us have friends and family that we actually like to see and living the gypsy lifestyle moving from one job location to another doesn't make that easy on friends, family or children. Furthermore, some of us got where we are by being specialized, and once discarded its not easy or quick to find the next...
This is a nice science article, but mainstream media has made this "breakthrough" into something it is not, not by a long shot.
First, it has nothing to do with vaccines. Vaccines are when you are injected with a protein that causes YOU to generate antibodies to that protein. This article is about injecting you with antibodies, which will be cleared from your body in about three days, and the authors guess that it will cost about $1000 a dose (yes, that means upwards of $2000 a week, and two or more shots at the doctor's office per week!)
Second, while the stalk of the HA protein is a great substrate for antibodies, it is not normally exposed and most antibodies won't be able to see it. Sure, they loaded up some mice with unreasonably high amounts of antibodies and saw some protection to select strains of influenza, but there is a long way to see if this will work against many (never all) strains of influenza, or even if it will work at all in humans! Again, good basic research, but its not a breakthrough, its a good start, a good idea, which is exactly what public science is all about. Sadly, they know very little about commercial drug production and are cashing in on FUD!
If you want to more about flu research go to a site like http://www.pandemicflu.gov/ . There are several new drugs, which hold much more promise and are much closer to being on the market then this!
Disclaimer: I help do research on one of those other drugs...
Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
