Comment Re:Goon Badge Ninja Badge? (Score 1) 77

Goon or not, you have to have a badge to enter the party. Here's the thing, the Ninjas provide an event that has become a mainstay for Defcon attendees for years. They ask for nothing in return. There is no door fee, no fee for drinks, nor anything else. They don't ask you to stroke their egos, nor do they ask for anything at all in return. What other organization can you say that about? Do you know how much time and money are put into these events? The events are to honor those worthy of honor, those in our community that make a difference, in whatever small way. Ninja Networks tips their hat to these individuals, for no other reason than because it's the right thing to do, and people seldom do this sort of thing - especially to people in our community. Ninja Networks takes their time to make sure these people are appreciated and respected, in some small way, for the work those chosen few do. For those Nay Sayers out there, try and do something even remotely as constructive with your lives. Other than that, I won't waste any words on you. For those that appreciate this, I look forward to meeting you at Defcon. Hook

Flash Support Confirmed For Android 2.2 282

farble1670 writes "In an interview with the New York Times, Google's Andy Rubin confirmed that Android 2.2 will have support for Flash 10.1. Quoting: '[Rubin] promised that full support for Adobe’s Flash standard was coming in the next version of Android, code-named Froyo, for frozen yogurt (previous Android releases were called Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair, and are represented outside Building 44 on the Google campus with giant sculptures of the desserts). Sometimes being open "means not being militant about the things consumers are actually enjoying," he said.'"

What about pig latin? I mean, where is the voice of the pig latinites in all of this?!? Suuuuure, we may have google with the over-popular English version, and maybe yes we might just have a French version if the French get off their asses and copy what Google is doing...But whilst the Klingons are attacking people throughout the universe, the people that wish to read books in Pig Latin /still/ are not identified! I cry equal time, damn it! I think it's just another way that The Man is trying to subvert our culture and our minds to conform to a non-pig-latin biased relationship... Maybe this rant is a bit misplaced, because I'm feeling strangely like a Clerks mini-mart employee now...."but I'm not even supposed to be here today".
