Attention, sélection en vrac… Déjà, lisez cette excellente interview de Bill Gates (part 2 ici). On y apprend (entre autres) qu’il a eu une PSP gratos. Il y a longtemps. Je le hais. Et puis ça vous fera bosser votre anglais. Pour les flemmards uniquement concernés par les jeux vidéo, GK a fait un petit résumé de diverses autres ITW. Bon courage Bill. Ah, on va bien rire pendant les prochains mois, les rumeurs commencent. Chouette.

It’s official: we’re having an Engadget Pool Party this summer. Not sure who’s house it’s going to be at, but we’re going to have to figure something out right quick now that we’ve stumbled upon the SuperScreen Outdoor Theater System, a 13-foot by 16-foot inflatable screen that includes a portable DVD player, dual 15-inch speakers, and a DLP projector. So basically we’re going to need to borrow somebody’s pool for the afternoon. And also ten thousand dollars.
Monde de merde… Maintenant il faut inventer des verres pour protéger les femmes qui sortent.
After a friend was sexually assaulted when her drink was spiked in a bar, design student Tom Martin developed a device designed to put an end to that foul nightclub practice (see the Drink Guard, the Alcotop, and the Drink Safe Coaster for some earlier attempts at spike blockage). The Hollow is a glass with double walls, whose only way in to the liquid part of the chamber is via a special nozzle that must be affixed to the glass. Without the nozzle in place, it’s almost impossible to tamper with the drink’s contents — the center is hollow and bottomless, so anything pitched in in the normal manner would just fall straight through. Additionally, the Hollow sits on a special coaster that changes color as the drink sits. If not touched for over 10 minutes, the coaster is blue, signifying to the drinker the higher likelihood that the drink had been tampered with in her absence. We won’t even go into how insane it is that someone had to invent this device in the first place, and just congratulate Tom Martin on being proactive about it.
Monde de merde bis. Non seulement les ricains mentent, mais en plus ils ne savent pas crypter un PDF. Boooo ! :-/
US Secrets revealed with cut’n’paste:Mark Frauenfelder: Simon says: « Seems that the US report on the killing of Italian agent Calipari in Baghdad by US forces was redacted by a PDF novice who didn’t understand how to operate the DRM. Consequently all the names, numbers and details carefully redacted by the military are available with just a simple cut-and-paste. Does this make the clipboard a DMCA violation mechanism? »
This morning Gianluca Neri, an Italian blogger from Milano, had a look at the document which was published on the net and ridiculized the whole American secret services. With a simple cut and paste from the Acrobat document into a word processor, he was able to disclose all details to the public: names, places, the name of the soldier who fired, everything…
It is actually pretty simple to recover that information. Open this PDF, select all text, copy to clipboard and paste into a regular text editor. if your version of Arcobot does not let you select the text, find the Microsoft Word document here.
