Democratic rep fathered alleged Palin hacker

Elrond Hubbard

Same old leftist tactics.

Gwen Moore's son in '04, this leftist scumbag now. Democrats and their spawn behaving dishonorably isn't a new phenomenon.

This might get interesting as we find out more about Kernell's apparent David Plouffe connection.(Obama's campaign manager)

Read the second paragraph!

No it's not the same as Chrome's, nor is it quite as outrageous for a web host to do this as a web browser, but read the second paragraph. It says they get a *perpetual* license to any content other than video, audio, or graphics. I guess that would include text and computer code. Is there any legitimate reason for that clause? I can't think of one.

Media standard backers attempt Apple-less solo run

Elrond Hubbard

the real story

So they want a universal DRM. Like Plays For Sure.... look how that ended

Of course Apple arent showing any interest in this - they're against DRM, for music at least. Good on them too, more legal music for everyone.

Web designer sues Brat City for assaulting hyperlink

Technical ineptness

On the part of the judges who don't understand how easy it is to STOP deep linking, and really more so on the complaining website hosts who are being deep linked for not understanding their own supposed field of expertise.

Legal digital music is commercial suicide

Elrond Hubbard

You forgot CDs

I've been listening to legal digital music on CDs for over 10 years, and the music companies I've been purchasing from don't seem to be dead yet.

It's still able to id people!

By replication i think you'll find she means people have had their sample taken mroe than once so they have multiples of the 'same' DNA just taken at different dates.... it prob fits with their policy of never deleting a sample... even the innocents!

Hope for us yet...

In the context of Amy Winehouse's up-and-down life, someone remarked a few weeks ago that there was nothing funnier than looking at the geeks on here trying to comment on art.

I disagree.

In fact, nothing is funnier than watching the wanking chimps on here, who haven't been near a church in three generations, trying to comment on matters religious...ROFL

UK.gov pushes £50,000 fine for online copyright infringement

Elrond Hubbard

Those annoying licences, eh?

Oops! Looks like the UK arm of the "Christian Copyright Licensing International" (CCLI - http://www.ccli.co.uk), who are one of the "consultation partners" on the policy review document you provide links to are... breaching copyright + IP law themselves.

The JavaScript DHTML menu they use is actually licensed to CCLI Australia, which is run from a different server. This isn't permitted by the authors (Milonic Systems)

screw this.

"About time the hasbeen drama queen learnt she's not above the law."

No, the law is stupid. Any of us could be found under similar circumstances and would be likewise upset and frustrated by this idiotic law. Only Naomi makes news, the rest of us quietly go to jail for this retarded nonsense.

Angry people.

I like how all of your are like, serves her right. blagh blagh blagh.

I Was A Teenage Bot Master

covering the traces

This is a good story for the public but for the underground this guy means nothing. He wasn't more than a skiddie, he didn't code shit, but being stupid is not an excuse in hacking. He deserved to got jailed, I just wonder how was he able to operate so long.

I did remember to their #bottalk channel and to those loosers from bluehell. I always though that the whole netconnection of that eLEET irc server is tapped and these dumbasses were flaming, flaming and flaming about how much power do they have.

He obviously wasn't too intelligent otherwise he would have make an own bot and drop his irc protocol based shit whatever RX/SD/AGO etc he used and try to code at least a http+ssl based or p2p bot. That wasn't his work either.

That he got 400K boxens also hard to believe because the new avs, isp security hardenings, idses etc.. So what I think about him, he bought crypters, source codes, since he got money with his adscams. His behaviour wasn't so different from the spammers.

But I agree with one thing, he didn't screw his life up with hacking, and playing world of warcraft. I spent almost all my life at the front of the computer, rather going out with friends partying, because I had to live in a scum country so don't fucking talk about American Dream TM. This is a life style and why would it be worst than someone else's life which ends with 10 hours work, alcohol and cigarettes and family problems...

Osaifu-Keitai

Japan and South Korea have been using mobile payment/access technologies for years, my preference would be to forgo NFC and adopt the more tried and tested Osaifu-Keitai technologies that are now approaching their third commercially deployed versions unlike NFC, that hasn’t changed much since being passed around research labs years ago.

Mozilla CEO blasts Apple for putting security of the internet at risk

Never mind

This isn't the place for reasoned argument - I get enough of that in my day job, where they frown on such terms as Microshit, Microshaft, Microsuck, Windoze, Steve Ballmer is a Sweaty Moron etc etc.

Besides, as we all know there's no reasoning in the Apple / Microspaz debate. People are firmly entrenched... so why not have a giggle. :-)

Elrond Hubbard

Well,

"What's with this term "fanboi"?"

1. It's not a word.

2. It's crap.

3. It shows people up for the bitter fools they are, clinging to their crappy virus-ridden and desperately unstable Windoze Pee Cees yet unable to move to a stable, working and usable platform due to some misguided need to HATE HATE HATE Apple.

Morons!

Elrond Hubbard
Stop

Tedious

Can you give it a rest with this "Jesus Phone" twaddle? Yeah, we get it. You're poking fun at the fact that Apple has some overzealous fans. Brilliant. Can you think of any new jokes though?

You say this like it's a bad thing... so what if people hang on Jobs' every word? Surely that's their lookout. What exactly is the problem with a company making stuff that people want to buy? Surely it's better to be a bit over the top about good products than inspire nothing but despair and hatred like Microshit??
