A second remote SCADA hack was demonstrated at the KEMA Control System Cyber Security Conference in 2006 in Portland, Oregon. This one was conducted by a different DoE lab, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The attack involved compromising a secure VPN to change voltages on a simulated Olympic Peninsula electric system while, again, altering operator displays to conceal the attack.
Amazon’s cloud computing infrastructure is growing so fast that it’s silently becoming a core piece of the internet.
On Thursday, Chaffetz and a host of other lawmakers asked Smith to stop the hearing so that the committee could bring in experts to testify. But Smith had refused, and the committee voted 22-12 to leave the DNS redirect and firewall provisions intact.
Local television in St. Louis is already dispensing doom-laden warnings about rusting metal and hazardous materials exposed by the receding waters.
Obviously, since Friend Connect is a full set of APIs, Google has been working on it for some time, so it isn’t strictly a “me too” response to MySpace or Facebook. In fact Friend Connect looks infinitely more useful than either of the toolsets that MySpace and Facebook are talking about releasing, but it still doesn’t solve all the concerns of data portability. With the limited information that’s available, Friend Connect looks to be primarily of interest to other websites that want develop social tools — not something that will allow users to have more control over their data.

Case-in-point are the short interviews with Burtynsky that accompany 24 of the photos. I enjoy a piece of art more when I know something about it and hearing Burtynsky explain things that you wouldn’t find in a normal caption — like why he composed certain photos in very particular ways — enriched the experience.
In the wake of the Equifax breach, businesses, lawmakers and individuals are grappling with the issue of protecting personal information – and for Congress, that could mean increased regulation and oversight.
And how’s this for fun and convenience: When reading email messages, you can flick your screen right or left to read any message that comes before or after the one you’re currently reading. This basic flick gesture appears throughout the new OS. You can use it to quickly remove individual alerts in your Notifications list, individual browser thumbnails in your browser Tabs view, and any recently used app in the new Recents menu (which is a transplant from Honeycomb, the Android tablet OS).
Marcus said McAfee researchers have already found the Mac Trojan on 65 websites. But he said the malware is not living up to its full potential: It only redirects users who attempt to visit one obscure adult website.
More than 300,000 people have visited the website. All this started because Stein found many people in a chat room early on the morning of Nov. 22, who – like him – were “very angry” about the tax increase.
“The day’s not far away where conversational commerce will become a reality. You don’t have to type at your keyboard and think about the right words to choose to put in a search engine. You’ll be able to ask the question ‘What should I wear to this event, what complements this dress, what shoes or accessories,’” he said. “We’re getting ready to experiment with those technologies that allow the seamless experience to happen.”
“For the record, I always disclose when a book review was generated from a free galley, ARC or finished book (if the book is a printed manuscript or an ebook, I sometimes skip it, since I tear off and discard sheets from the former and generally delete the latter once I’m through with it),” Doctorow wrote. “Though, to be honest, “free” books are a substantial liability, since I get sent about 20 dumb, off-topic or not-quite-right books for every one I review, and I have to pay for a PO Box and a monthly taxi to get them all to the local charity shop.”
A post on the IE 8 blog describes the solution:

Patrick Pilcher, research manager for e-commerce analyst IDC New Zealand, sees the trend in online pharmacies as inexorable and local legislation as relatively futile.
Universalis, a Roman Catholic publishing house in Britain, has expanded its “Liturgy of the Hours” from desktop Internet to wireless application protocol phones.
Cook tweeted Sunday that “250 of my Apple co-workers are #Dreamers. I stand with them. They deserve our respect as equals and a solution rooted in American values.”
It isn’t the first time Apple has run into trouble distributing iOS. Two years ago, Apple halted downloads of iOS 8 after customers said the initial update disrupted their ability to make phone calls and use the TouchID fingerprint sensor. The company has also worked over the years to slim down the size of the iOS download after users complained about having to delete apps to make room for the new software.
Tired: Unlimited choice leads to analysis paralysis; requires a lot of preparation to play.
The site was blatantly illegal. Indeed, an IRS agent had designed it to look as sketchy as possible. It included lists and pictures of various drugs. A giant Mexican flag unfurled across the background. There was a disclaimer promising to replace any packages that were stopped by US Customs. Nevertheless, not one week after Whitaker made his first phone call, his sales rep passed the site along for policy review.
Mitnick served five years in a federal prison for wire fraud, computer fraud and intercepting communications.
“We designed them and built them ourselves and so, even before that though we started installing what we call ‘the highly autonomous logistics operation.’ So it was really driven by robotics and driven by a conveyor-belt system. Now we’ve designed parts of that system in-house, including this cart system,” Huang told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Which brings us to one unexpected force that might bring down Facebook. The S-1 contains 21 pages of text delineating the risk factors facing the company in the coming years, including extensive descriptions of the competitive threats it faces from Google, Twitter, Microsoft, and other social networks abroad. And yet the document is almost entirely silent on the opposite hazard: the risk of no competition, which might bring down the hammer of antitrust. In the S-1 the only oblique reference to that possibility comes in a single bullet point alluding to “changes mandated by legislation, regulatory authorities, or litigation, including settlements and consent decrees, some of which may have a disproportionate effect on us.”
“For a large amount of the world, doing good is fundamentally very, very boring,” explained Gallop. “If you go to the homepage of something like DoSomething.org, or any one of the many [like it], there is an instant yawn factor -– ‘I know this is really good stuff, I should be doing it, but I’m half asleep already.”
For those who came to the digital music scene this year because of Napster, Metallica will forever be known as the band that publicly berated the file-trading company and chased its executives through the halls of the Senate and federal court.
Like a teenager planning to throw a wild party when his parents go on vacation and leave him alone for the first time, I can just imagine the mischievous look on Page’s face when his boss announced it was finally time to give him the key to the corner office.
The clickers themselves vary among companies but generally allow students to respond to multiple choice questions or key in a numeric answer. The clickers can also be used to give quizzes that can be graded automatically and entered in a computerized gradebook, saving professors time. But several professors said they have avoided that so students will see the handheld devices as positive, rather than punitive.
Tesla said it will be mass producing its new high-performance cylindrical “2170 cell,” which CEO Elon Musk has said is both the highest energy density cell in the world and is also the cheapest.
Spain has a long-established cinematographic tradition. Its cinema goes from cheap spaghetti westerns to the works of masters such as Luis Buñuel, Carlos Saura, Pedro Almodovar and a new generation of talented directors like Julio Medem and Alejandro Amenabar.
The latest economic downturn has cast a pall on the future of Latino portals. Unless these portals distinguish themselves to users and make money – real fast – they’ll be forced to close their doors, Korzenny said.
__Bornstein:__There are inherent advantages for each channel and the more we can bring those two things together, the better we can make the overall experience. Most of our consumers are cross-channel shoppers, and we want to make their experience between online and offline as seamless as possible. We know that shoppers want the same information they can find while shopping online in the store as well. In that sense, mobile has been the greatest tool to offer that information in stores.
But isn’t there something sacred about a letter from a friend? Shouldn’t a simple conversation between two companions be free from the taint of naked commercialism?
“Of course it doesn’t,” John said. “It’s thirteen years later. I was a hundred pounds lighter.”
