As much as I love Firefox I honestly don’t see this happening by the end of 2005. Far too many corporations mandate that IE be the broswer of choice. Until Firefox can break into this market (which they are slowly beginning to do) this market share will not be attainable.
Wow, this is crazy.
“The Firefox full-page NYT ad campaign finished off today with an impressive $250,000 over 10 days. Impressive to say the least, and it goes to show just how much momentum Firefox has.”
So I managed to play around with and get my Moblog working finally. I know some of you are rolling your eyes going “Yet another Moblog?” and my response is, “yes…but this one I will actually use.” The gmail moblog wasn’t really useful, it’s more of a proof of concept than anything else. Besides, that account is kind of a mess at the moment due to my extensive use of Gfile. Oh how I wish Gmail would get rid of the 10MB attachment limit so I could really make use of my Gmail account.
Anyways, back to the point. So now all I do is drop an email to a certain email account with a particular subject line from a particular email account (a list I specify so as not to receive any spam moblog posts) and then the entry is added with whatever attachments I included.
Now…I just need to get a camera phone so I can start photoblogging with this moblog. That looks to be several years down the line though because I’ve only had my cell for 1 1/2 years at this point. Half way there I supposed. Ah well, back to the land of the productive.
I had to smile when I saw this. Apparently copies of Halo 2 have begun to arrive in stores this weekend for sale Monday, November 8th.
Well tonight pretty much failed. Granted, I really expecting much, but it failed more than I expected none the less. After standing outside for 30 minutes and seeing the line to get into the party not moving at all a friend and I gave up. It turns out that literally about 15 minutea after we left the line was gone and everyone was inside. My fucking luck. Ah well…here I go to read Darwin.
I just downloaded a new video showing a lot of Halo 2’s multiplayer action and let me just tell you, oh my god. By far the coolest thing that I saw was this thing called Proximity Voice. Basically what this means is that while playing online (with the optional headset) you can speak and only people who would hear you in real life (those just in your immediate vacinity) will be able to hear you. So for example if you kill someone in a one on one duel you can stand over there body and talk trash to just them. While this doesn’t sound like a big deal to the non-geek, think about the technology behind that seemingly simple feature. The engine has to determine:
Anyways, enough rambling. This game is going to kick so much ass. I can’t decide which I am more excited about, Halo 2 or Half Life 2 Too much fun and goodness…stupid classes.
The flaw which was discovered by Goldshlagger and was tested many times by Nana’s editorial board had shown an alarming success rate. In order not to further jeopardize mail boxes’ owners, we will only disclose that the process is based upon a security breach in the service’s identity authentication. It allows the hacker to “snatch” the victims cookie file (a file planted in the victim’s computer used to identify him) using a seemingly innocent link (which directs to Gmail’s site itself).
Once stolen, this cookie file allows the hacker to identify himself as the victim, without the need of a password. Even if the victim does change his password afterwards, it will be to no avail. The system authenticates the hacker as the victim, using the stolen cookie file. Thus no password is involved in the authentication process. The victim can change his password as many times as he pleases, and it still won’t stop the hacker from using his box”, explains Goldshlagger.
Just in case anyone missed it, Next Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB) is the new name for Palladium even though Palladium still gets through around most of the time because it’s shorter and because so many people are already afraid of that word.
As terrifying as the idea of Palladium is, it has some very interesting perks. This would be quite nice if the security spec is applied to handhelds…finally some type of quality wireless security.
It’s amusing, in a cute way that the guy is still excited about his “baby.”
