Submission + - SPAM: Chrome Multitask mode

ravindra.joisa writes: "Chrome Multitask Mode lets you browse the web with multiple cursors at the same time, so you can get more done, faster. So much web, so little time. Multitask Mode allows you to browse the web with more than one mouse, so you can see more, do more, and wait less. Multitask Mode lets you use as many mice as you can plug into your computer, so you and your friends can navigate dozens of sites, at the same time, on the same device. Watch this video and let us know who do you think David is and do you think its an April Fool. ;)"

Submission + - WIFI/cell signal blocking maternity clothes 1

musikit writes: My wife and I have recently found out she is pregnant with our first child. She thinks that WIFI and cell signals pose a big risk to the child, or maybe she just wants to reduce any impact while in the womb. Today in Ikebukuro Tokyo she bought "RF blocking maternity belt" but on testing it, it did not block out our cell phones. I looked (briefly) into it and discovered http://www.bellyarmor.com/ that apparently has this type of wear. Can anyone recommend this or other brands? is it effective? is she off her rocker? Most appreciate the help.

Submission + - RubyOnRails.org Domain Registration Lost 1

Tyler Larson writes: "It seems that official Ruby On Rails website (rubyonrails.org) has turned into a parked advertising page. The WHOIS record for the domain lists the registrant as "Next Angle", administered by "BuyDomains.dk LLC". David Heinemeier Hansson filed two years ago for a trademark on the phrase "ruby on rails," and he may or may not be able to use it to reclaim the associated domain name. It seems clear, however, that if BuyDomains has legitimately taken ownership of the domain--which currently has a Google PageRank of 7/10--they will not let it go without either a drawn-out fight or a very large payment.

For many organizations, their domain name has become their identity. What precautions do you take to make sure it doesn't get taken from you? What sort of contingency plan can you implement in the case that it does?"

SCO Proposes Sale of Assets To Continue Litigation 290

gzipped_tar sends in this excerpt from the Salt Lake Tribune: "The embattled SCO Group Inc. is proposing to auction off its core products and use proceeds to continue its controversial lawsuits over the alleged violations of its copyrights in Linux open-source software. The Lindon company has filed a new reorganization plan with the federal court in Delaware where it sought bankruptcy protection from creditors after an adverse ruling in the Linux litigation. If approved by a bankruptcy judge, the plan could mean SCO's server software and mobile products lines are owned by other parties while SCO itself remained largely to pursue the lawsuits under the leadership of CEO Darl McBride. 'One goal of this approach is to separate the legal defence of its intellectual property from its core product business,' McBride said in a letter to customers, partners and shareholders. Jeff Hunsaker, president and COO of The SCO Group, said the litigation had been distracting to the company's efforts to market its products. 'We believe there's value in these assets and in order for the business to move forward it's imperative we separate it from our legal claims and we allow our products business to move forward,' he said Friday."
