How I think about it: The crates that Rust needs will have to be kept in tree - certain dependencies are not easy to maintain in tree.

Unhappy about excluding nation-state attacks from cyberinsurance? Get ready to pay
If a miscreant wanted to really stick it to a company - Engineer the malware on a, say Iranian (false flag), computer with the proper time zone, language, GPS, etc. I would bet now some companies might pay the ransom.
Insurance companies must not be allowed to cherry pick events to avoid covering say a hack. In the U.S. some states have laws like that. Or else floods, earthquakes, or fire insurance would not be sold. Sorry, those are the risks in the insurance industry.
Quantum computing startup IonQ lands on Microsoft's Azure
"Chapman claimed Aria was "a computer that is over 130,000 times more computationally powerful than our previous cloud offering..."
Only if you can express your problem as a combinatorial optimisation problem, for example.
I wonder how many people would bet the farm on quantum computing - like our friend Peter is doing?
The truth about that draft law banning Uncle Sam buying insecure software
"...submitted bill of materials is free from all known vulnerabilities or defects affecting the security of the end product or service."
It does not sound ambiguous to me, especially since the supreme court is full of constitutionalists.
What this would stop is selling software with a known bug - like Apple selling IOS to Uncle Sam with a known security vulnerability, like a VPN data leak for instance.
Two years on, Apple iOS VPNs still leak IP addresses

Crypto lender Celsius in Chapter 11 deep freeze
What I want to know is why the judge gave Celsius so much money for operating expenses and to retain their employees. What exactly is everyone going to be doing? It sounds like another expense that will come out of their customers pocket - but hey, they keep their jobs.
It seems that the principals were made mostly whole already with their customers funds as well - that is the real reason for halting withdrawals - so those in on the "deal" can exit nicely.
As an aside, I hate that they call these scams crypto. I work with cryptography quite a bit. If someone asks what kind of software do I write - I have to bother to explain that no I'm not one of the scammers.
Tech world may face huge fines if it doesn't scrub CSAM from encrypted chats
I have been encrypting mail before I send it for several years now - all automated (meaning no mess, no fuss.) The feds do not think that this will become common? Remember more and more tech savvy kids are born every day.
If crypto is banned, then encryption will be used more than ever - plus that horse already left the barn.
W3C overrules objections by Google, Mozilla to decentralized identifier spec
What makes it so difficult to give people what they want? Time and time again another spec gets forced down our collective throats. Nobody listens anymore - companies think that they are far too important to actually listen to anyone who knows what they are talking about - from program features to security to ease of use. Especially security.

Consultant plays Metaverse MythBuster. Here's why they're wrong
It is clear that we are only at the beginning of the hype cycle as we know it today. As experimentation broadens, there will be an explosion of hype that will transform the way we work, play, connect, and engage. Brands will need to define their hype strategy – and the decision on which path to take will depend on what they believe about their own hype and the investment required.

Intel blasts Bitcoin mining, unveils own mining kit
"A single ledger entry in Bitcoin consumes enough energy to power your house for almost a day. That's a climate crisis. That's not okay,"
"But in under a minute in that same interview"
"Intel's bringing forward a blockchain chip that's dramatically better,"
And that is arguable.
Credibility it seems, is meaningless.
