Fascinating read - H.G. Wells interviews Stalin.
How to make Easter eggs… Hmm.
Shit I got a stiffy now. Can’t wait.
Hmmm. Whenever I see “consent” I think about rape. Which best describes invasion of privacy for me. I’m too lazy and google is honestly too despicable for being worthy of the time, but it would be an interesting exercise to replace all the verbs following “consent” in their new ToS by “rape”. Hell I may just do it later.
I hope it works. That’s really amazing stuff, I’ve said it here already many times.
We live in a panopticon, and it’s time to get real. Yes, we should look to our security updates for protection against “ordinary” criminals. But if you’re worried about the government, patching NSA-exploited zero-days is a bit like trying to treat a bubonic plague outbreak by hanging a sprig of lavender over your front door: at best it’s a displacement activity, while the cure lies elsewhere.

So, this explains a lot. It explains why those “market research analysts” kept pushing Samsung up and putting Apple down. It explains why we don’t see any of those devices in the wild. It explains why we don’t see any meaningful percentage in the traffic of our websites. It explains why the white-box (others) does not appear anywhere but in the charts of “analysts”. Incidentally it also explains why the others are still in the game and believe in their chances.
Those Android tablets simply do not exist. They’re an inventory number, they weren’t sold. And for the believers of the church of market-share: there is no market-share.
I must confess I laughed. Now, popcorn is ready, let’s look at the reaction of the market. And Samsung investors, who were clearly misled.
in Asia in particular, that humiliation is priceless… for Samsung competitors. ↩
Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
Phew. And here we go again.
