Submission + - A Reporter's Doubts About AntiSec's Claim of Hacking Apple Data from FBI (cio.com)

Curseyoukhan writes: "AntiSec says they got it from Christopher K. Stangl, an agent featured in a 2009 recruitment video titled “Wanted by the FBI: Cyber Security Experts.” Not saying it didn't happen but the irony level is so high it should make you suspicious. That's not the only oddly perfect claim AntiSec made, either."

Submission + - Iran to Ban Women from Science and Engineering Classes (telegraph.co.uk)

jasper160 writes: An August 20th, 2012 announcement from Iran places restrictions on female university students. Iran will be cutting 77 fields of study from the female curriculum, making them male-only fields. Science and engineering are among those affected by the decree. The announcement came soon after the release of statistics showing that women were graduating in far higher numbers than men from Iranian universities and were scoring overall better than men, especially in the sciences.

Senior clerics in Iran's theocratic regime have become concerned about the social side-effects of rising educational standards among women.

Submission + - Most Underaprreciated SF Writer

mvdwege writes: "In the thread on Most Depressing SF there were hundreds of posts and but four mentions of John Brunner, dystopian writer par excellence. Now, given the normally US Libertarian bent of the Slashdot audience, it is understandable that outright British Socialist writer Brunner would get short shrift, but it got me thinking: what SF writers do you know that are, in your opinion, vastly underappreciated?"
