Comment Re:We'll see what Trump does (Score 5, Insightful) 172

Well he campaigned on the idea of giving power back to the people, so if he were an honest man, he'd be on the workers'/union's side here. However it's quite obvious that he's the biggest, greatest liar in the world, as well as being a traditional conservative corporate whore, so he's going to be on AT&T's side.

As for the "boy", he was 17 years old, with a history of selling himself for sex/drugs.

And as for the Senator, he's married with children and has a history of pushing anti-gay and anti-marijuana legislation. Then he gets caught in a motel with an underage boy and marijuana. It's just another example of the incredible projection and hypocrisy that infects the Republican party to its core. Anytime a conservative starts yelling about outlawing something, look closely because he's probably doing a lot of that thing himself.

Comment Enough already with the TLDs (Score 4, Insightful) 89

I wish them luck, but I'm not sure it makes a lot of sense to be creating yet another top-level domain.

For example, a mobile phone company could create to show its Africa-wide presence, or a travel company could set up

So they'll sell off a few hundred generic words to speculators, but I predict few others will be buying in. Many of the new gTLDs created over the past couple of years are either shutting down, or jacking up domain prices into the multi-hundred dollar per year range just to stay in operation. Keeping a TLD alive isn't cheap, and it turns out there's not much demand for all of this namespace after all. When you can't amortize your TLD's infrastructure cost across millions of customers, you wind up having to price each domain so high that nobody's going to buy one.

Submission + - Cloudflare Leaks Sensitive User Data Across the Web

ShaunC writes: In a bug that's been christened "Cloudbleed," Cloudflare disclosed today that some of their products accidentally exposed private user information from a number of websites. Similar to 2014's Heartbleed, Cloudflare's problem involved a buffer overrun that allowed uninitialized memory contents to leak into normal web traffic. Tavis Ormandy, of Google's Project Zero, discovered the flaw last week. Affected sites include Uber, Fitbit, and OKCupid, as well as unnamed services for hotel booking and password management. Cloudflare says the bug has been fixed, and Google has purged affected pages from its search index and cache.

In case of this game, you already bought it so you have a limited license to potentially use it under certain conditions as long as the studio sees fit, doesn't decide to shut off their authentication servers, and neither the publisher nor the gaming platform decide you've violated an arbitrary rule.
