I’m generally in favor of EPIC’s work, but this is ridiculous (“Domain Owners Lose Privacy,” March 4, 2005). Quite simply, you don’t need to own a domain name in order to practice free speech online. In fact, you don’t need to own a domain name for anything, although it’s definitely advantageous for doing business, or for large organizations.
“It is pretty standard for big computer companies to get as many patents as they can for basic reasons of self-defense,” Nielsen told Slashdot. “If somebody tries to come after you then you can fight back with your own patents. That usually does not mean that the company wants to go after smaller companies unless they attack first.”
Intelligence agencies would find fake certificates more useful, he adds. If the NSA got a fake certificate for Gmail – which now uses SSL as the default for e-mail sessions in their entirety (not just their logins) – they could install one of Packet Forensics’ boxes surreptitiously at an ISP in, for example, Afghanistan, in order to read all the customer’s Gmail messages. Such an attack, though, could be detected with a little digging, and the NSA would never know if they’d been found out.

You may want to point out in your piece that Web
History is for users who have chosen to sign up for a Google account and that during that sign up process the user can choose not to have Web History. The way your piece reads now suggests that anyone searching on Google has Web History, which is not the case. It is also important to point out that those with Web
History can delete their Web History either entirely, or in parts, at their own discretion any time they like.
Carrie Fisher was smashing in The Force Awakens, but that didn’t stop trolls from attacking her “aged” appearance. In her new memoir, The Princess Diarist, the popular and unashamedly candid actress looks more than ready to take on the social-media backlash, addressing the ongoing ageism that dictates the careers of so many women in Hollywood. In one handwritten page released on Twitter from the manuscript, Fisher writes: “My hours alone are spent wondering what I said, why I said it, why I shouldn’t have said it … what they think of me.” Using early diaries she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, Fisher promises to take a closer look at Princess Leia, examining how the decision to play the character changed her life.
“You can argue this on constitutional grounds. Does the government have the right to do this? Frankly, I think the government does have a right to do it. You can do balancing privacy and security… dead men don’t have a right to privacy. I don’t use those lenses. My lens is the security lens, and frankly, it’s a close but clear call that Apple’s right on just raw security grounds,” he said.

“If you have the skills to break into a product that’s secure, are you going to announce it to the world, or are you going to keep those skills to yourself?” said Jeff Moss, a hacker and security expert at Blackhat, a computer company based in Seattle.

Two separate research initiatives—one from a pioneering cryptographer and a second from a team based at Stanford University—have proposed a return to this purer, Athenian-style democracy. Rather than expect everyone to vote, both proposals argue, we should randomly select an anonymous subset of electors from among registered voters. Their votes would then be extrapolated to the wider population. Think of it as voting via statistically valid sample. With a population of 313 million, the US would need about 100,000 voters to deliver a reliable margin of error.
The folks at Hillsboro weren’t eager to concede their title to Chandler. “There was this little bit of mano-a-mano between the two construction sites,” Calder admits. “It was like, ‘Our crane is bigger.'”
The World Atlas of Solar Eclipse Maps on the NASA page illustrates eclipse locations for the next 90 years. You could find yourself anywhere from a monastery in Bhutan to a farm in the Ozarks, with a view of a sky hardly anyone gets to see.
Sure, your kids probably won’t care, and he looks more like his cartoon counterpart this way, but it reinforces my disappointment that the post–Michael Bay Transformers aren’t actually designed in such a way that the transformations are physically possible.
My question to Dyson and ICHEG : Why the artificial “rule” of one entry per year and only one entry per year? Why not have some years with multiple entries? Some years with no entries?

Recently a publicist offered me a nice little scoop involving two of her clients, who planned to post a list of 10 U.S. advertisers that have been flouting the Can-Spam Act of 2003 by ignoring consumers’ demands to unsubscribe. Instead of cutting down on spam, attempted delisting just generated more mounds of e-mail. Would I be interested?
Jonathan Mendez: I’ve been reading stories about how journalism is going to the people in cases like this, so I figured this might pick up well from that, but at the same time, I had no idea how big it would get.
That means the law frequently rests on the definition of “authorization.” Many cases suggest that if the owner doesn’t want you to use the system, for whatever reason, your use is unauthorized. In one case I took on appeal, the trial court had held that searching for airline fares on a publicly available, unprotected website was unauthorized access because the airline had asked the searcher to stop.
