But then there would have been a space in the name...

"If you routinely browse in multiple languages, then you're sufficiently unusual that it's not unreasonable to expect you to be the one who has to do something different.
Like, maintain a separate browser window for each language. To me that doesn't sound too big an imposition."
That's only because you haven't tried it in real life.
I just got an e-mail with an update to an order i placed before Easter. The e-mail is in Danish. When I click the link, should I choose the English or the Danish browser? (Turns out, the website is in English, despite the Danish e-mail).
http://www.logitech.com - better use my English browser. Turns out, Logitech detects my location and redirects me to http://www.logitech.com/da-dk, so now I have to switch to my Danish browser?
Visiting Lenovo's Support site, I end up on http://support.lenovo.com/dk/en (DK for Denmark but EN for English, since the language on the support site is in English. So English or Danish browser?
And yes, we have domains with special Danish letters: Æ, Ø og Å.
Might be: Some girls like girls.
So attacker finds saucy pictures on Alice's (who is into girls) drive, and Alice knows Carol and Diana (also into girls - note the "details on their female friends" part).
Then Bob pretends to be Alice and sends Carol and Dinah a saucy e-mail suggesting pics for pics.
Easy to compute from here.
Just guessing though.
"If that's a full charge in 5 minutes, you'll be lucky if you battery (or phone) survives for long."
The charger can't force the phone to charge faster than it's build for. Electronics in the phone takes care of that, so it'll drain 1 Ah (probably), no matter how many Ah the charger is able to deliver.
5 minutes will NOT give a full charge.
I think you missed this part of the article:
>>"It was too good an opportunity to pass up," explained Professor Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan. "How often do you get the chance to hack a government network without the possibility of going to jail?"<<
But if you call the risk of going to jail 'a little more interesting', you are right.
Here's how tey COULD do it:
Try four times. Wait for the user to login (=post to Twitter), thus resetting the counter. Try four times. Repeat.
OR IF the user don't login, wait an hour (counter is reset after an hour according to http://support.twitter.com/entries/63510-i-m-locked-out-after-too-many-login-attempts) before trying four times again.
But, more likely, they've used a social hack or someone re-used the same password on other sites.
"A good trick, provided the resulting code still validates and still behaves properly in all target browsers (which probably includes IE6). "
Since IE6 don't support the new protocol, data for IE6 would still be transmitted 'the old way'.
"Truly, though why no one in PBS had the common sense to check with their IT people that the doors were locked properly beats me..."
And what did you expect the IT people to answer?
"Oh, pease don't air that documentary. We have to secure our servers first, otherwise know as 'something we should have done in the first place'"
"It stinks to be number two in a market. Or worse, number three. But that's the position that most consumer technology companies find themselves in today,"
How is this specific for the technology market?
If there is more than two companies on the market, surely most of those companies must find themselves being number two or three? Or four or...?
