Adobe euthanizes Flash 10.1 for 64-bit Linux


for 64-bit browsers

It is a pain to use a 32-bit plugin in a 64-bit browser. It either needs a wrapper, which is buggy and inefficient, or run it in a different process, which isn't easy.

This is especially important for Linux, where 64-bit OSes always come with a 64-bit browser.

Firefox plans fix for decade-old browsing history leak


that's exactly what they did


Wikipedia's Gallery guy hung up to dry?


Oh no! Our British taxpayer dollars!!

Oh no, we can't let Americans steal stuff made with our taxpayer dollars. We should get them back by stealing stuff they made.

Like all the digital photos in the Library of Congress (http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/catalog.html)

Or photos from the White House (http://www.whitehouse.gov/) and NASA (http://www.nasa.gov/).

Oh wait, they release all of that into the public domain. Greedy Americans.
