As for the Safari hole, it’s a vulnerability, not an exploit, and there are probably dozens of these in OS X, maybe more.
But Mohl dismissed shutting out Canadian surfers as a viable alternative, calling IP-address blocking an imperfect science. “One of the things we know about the Web is you could be in Denmark, but make your e-mail look like it’s coming from Boston,” she said.
The company said the Search Appliance was capable of scanning a host of documents, from personnel records to corporate literature, engineers’ computer code and even employee e-mail. However, it said each company would be able to determine the parameters of the in-house searches it conducts.
“This is how people produce information in the year 2013. They use Google Docs, they track changes, they collaborate,” Kraft says. “We’re bringing that new way of doing business to one of the most old fashioned and most important institutions.”
Online endeavors come and go faster than you can say Pets.com. But this month, the electronic magazine fineArt forum celebrates its 15th anniversary.
Previous eras of digital music revolved aroundsoftware and hardware, but LaLa founder Bill Nguyen says the future ofmusic, e-mail and many other activities will happen in the browser as applications migrate online.
“Our iPhone, ouriPod, our magic super device is the browser,” Nguyen told Wired.com.
“We think the future ofeverything is in a browser – forget about devices, forget abouteverything else.”
After that glaring omission, Greenwald mischaracterizes my contacts with the companies Lamo hacked. In writing about Lamo’s New York Times hack, Greenwald claims: “When Lamo hacked into the NYT, it was Poulsen who notified the newspaper’s executives on Lamo’s behalf, and then wrote about it afterward.” In truth, I contacted a spokeswoman for the Times, notified her of the intrusion, gave her time to confirm it, and then quoted her in the article.
Correction: The original version of this article incorrectly stated the number of square feet in the proposed building.
The program is legal in Russia. Sklyarov’s supporters say his work merely restores the “fair use” privileges consumers have traditionally enjoyed under U.S. copyright law.
First off: a “mini” Maker Faire is definitely a lot smaller than the Bay Area and New York versions, but it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to see and do everything there in a couple of hours. I took my kids on Saturday and ended up staying most of the day, and then went back on Sunday for a few more hours — and that was with me hustling the kids along.
Well, he engraved most of it into the ring. To add a little extra security, Shrem had his father leave out one of the digits from the private key. That’s stored in Shrem’s head – and only his head.
I realized most of my Twitter friends are like me: white dorks. So I picked out my new friend and started to pay attention.
“A lot left thinking they had a conversation with a real person,” said Fox, a 27-year-old undergraduate at the University of California at Berkeley. “Nobody thinks it’s an AI because they’re not even thinking about it.”
Bates’ hometown of Oklahoma City had such a television program itself but pulled the plug last year, saying it provided free advertising for prostitutes – who were featured on the public-access station along with their arrested customers – and did nothing stop the problem.
Neither improvement is likely to happen if Congress rejects the Bush administration’s proposed 2005 budget. “We don’t know what will happen,” said Quinn. “But we’re hopeful.”
Sony’s decision to drop its ATRAC file format and shutter the Connect music store signals a radical departure for the electronics giant, which has tried for 15 years to market its proprietary file format as a viable competitor to MP3 and other digital music formats.
“Developers have an opportunity to reach a significant customer base with new, entertaining and compelling applications,” said JK Shin, president of Samsung’s mobile communications, in a statement.
For its part, the Terrorist Screening Center, which compiles the unified terrorist watch list created by a 2003 presidential directive, did not respond with a request for comment. But a 2005 Inspector General report (.pdf) found the center’s database of hundreds of thousand of records was plagued with technical difficulties and inaccurate entries.
On January 10, the same user posted a third message to InfoWars implying that he might kill another police officer in Martinsville, Virginia, who had killed a 17-year-old boy with a Taser. In that message, the user claimed he owned a gun.
In the front window, there’s a tiny doll standing next to a bitcoin address, and if you wire some money to the address via your smartphone, the doll dances the hula. When the first hacker arrives each morning, unlocking the doors and deactivating the security alarm, the HeatSync website tells the world the lab is open. And on a table inside the workshop – beside a 3D printer, a laser cutter, and other hacker gear – you’ll find an LED display that shows you what people are saying about HeatSync on Twitter.
Wired.com spoke to Tudinh Duong, a member of Collective Visual and the director of this project, to hear about some of the team’s inspirations behind More Than Games.
MS: Because as the insurance company, we already have a lot more data than anybody else in the system. That’s the key reason to me why I felt we had to be an insurance company from the very beginning. If you try to go to employers and get their data, if you try to go to health systems to get their data, you’ll have a limited view. We see in real time what’s happening, and that’s a huge difference.
I played a version of Galactic Alliance by Vectorform a couple years ago at PAX on the Microsoft Surface Table. It’s a space-based tower defense game that handles up to four players simultaneously, working together to prevent various aliens from reaching Earth (or entering various gates). It was a lot of fun, and I played several rounds of it with random strangers. I hadn’t realized there was a version for the iPad for free (some are complaining that the latest update isn’t working), but now there’s Galactic Alliance 2.
The site also contains a couple of easter eggs; hidden in the source code is a “demon sheep” image, a reference to Fiorina’s bizarre 2010 attack ad against then-primary-opponent Ted Campbell that featured, well, a demonic sheep falling from a pedestal. That same joke plays out at [Fact-checking quibbles and obscure hidden references aside, though, what’s most striking about carlyfiorina.org is that it exists at all, or rather that it exists outside of Fiorina’s own stables. Fiorina has been politically active for years, including that 2010 California senate run. Domain look-up service Whois.net shows that carlyfiorina.org wasn’t created in December of 2014, by an anonymous owner with a bone to pick (we’ve reached out for comment). Surely at some point in those four years, someone in her camp would have thought to log into GoDaddy.
Amped, by contrast, only gives us the American view. And instead of humanity uniting against machines, it’s neighbor fighting neighbor. The conflict in the story is driven by politics and culture, not technology gone awry (at least, not from the point of view of the “good guys”). Ironically, the amps themselves, who are accused of using technology to gain an unfair advantage, mainly live in trailer parks and ghettos. They’re not backed by scientists and high tech labs; in fact, we see them struggle to keep their implants maintained and functioning without the equipment and facilities they need to survive.
Johnston read the argument and thought it seemed plausible, but he didn’t invest much effort in checking it carefully. At the time, mathematicians believed that the factorial formula for superpermutations was probably correct, and when you think you know the exact answer to a question, a lower bound isn’t very interesting. In other words, the superpermutation research episodes were playing out of order.
