How GitHub Apparently Ended UpThe big code repository GitHub is currently fighting off a large, prolonged denial of service attack--apparently in part because China or its sympathizers took exception to dissidents who use GitHub... to host software for routing around China's Great Firewall. No group has taken responsibility for the attack, but several indications suggest that its perpetrators are retaliating against China's perceived enemies. Some of the main GitHub pages targeted in the attack are repositories that specifically aim to help Chinese nationals get around the government's firewall. One such repo belongs to Greatfire.org, an organization that tracks online censorship in China. Its GitHub repository includes both links for individuals who want to access sites banned in China and software that website owners...

Mashable - 31 Mar 2015 06:20

Sufferers experienced "a range of resistances, fears, anxieties, and hostilities,"... according to the 1996 book Women and Computers.

Humans often converge around massive technological shifts — around any change, really — with a flurry of anxieties. In the early days of the telephone, people wondered if the machines might be used to communicate with the...

Apple and Ericsson first clashed in January, after the expiration of a 2008 licensing agreement between the two companies. Despite two years of negotiations, the companies failed to establish a new agreement that would let Apple use Ericsson's cellular technology patents. Apple filed a complaint suggesting Ericsson was both demanding excessive royalties for LTE patents and wrongly claiming its patents as essential for the LTE wireless communication standard. Ericsson responded with its...

Microsoft Surface 3 promisesWhat if you could buy a Surface tablet with a bit less horsepower and a slightly smaller display but longer battery life than the Surface Pro 3? And what if you could have all this for a lot less... money? If your wallet is already open, let me tell you what you're buying: the new Microsoft Surface 3--and it's powered by Windows 8.1. On Tuesday morning, Microsoft launched the Surface 3 with several subtle but critical changes to its entry-level Surface offering. Gone is Windows RT, casually tossed in the dustbin in favor of Windows 8.1. Microsoft also ditched the Surface 2's ARM chip in favor of Intel's latest "Cherry Trail" Atom X7. It's a move to a more power-efficient processor that I predicted last week.

But at $800... (and going up to nearly $2,000), it's also expensive. The Surface 3 is Microsoft's attempt to get in on that lower-priced action, and semi-resurrect the failed "RT" line, this time with real Windows.

How Beats Music can dethroneWhen Apple acquired Beats Music for $3 billion last May, it instantly became the company’s most expensive purchase ever. While the dollar amount involved in the deal might have raised some eyebrows,... the acquisition target certainly did not. With streaming music sites like Pandora and Spotify still gaining in popularity, Apple’s need to get into the streaming music business abundantly clear. And given the tepid product that was iTunes Radio, Apple arguably had no other choice but to go big and bring on an established music-brand if it ever wanted to truly compete with the likes of Spotify.

So, during a country music segment on The Voice I Googled, "how do I install Windows 10."

I haven't used Windows regularly for years, having abandoned the platform professionally just prior to Vista. I've tried to keep up, but never managed more than a vague acquaintance...

Mercury: How Much More Black Can It Be?*

Bad Astronomy - 31 Mar 2015 13:18
Mercury is an airless rocky world, much like our Moon, but for some reason it reflects less light than the Moon. This lower reflectivity (what we science types call its albedo) makes it darker than... expected. For a long time, it was thought that small grains of iron were the culprit. Being near the Sun, Mercury is cooked by light and subatomic particles from the Sun. This creates these tiny iron grains from iron embedded in the surface material, and these grains are quite dark. However, it turns out there isn't enough of them to explain why, on average, Mercury reflects half the light the Moon does. A new study has turned up a new perp: carbon. Comets have lots of carbon in them, and as they swing by the Sun they release a lot of it into space. In fact, as they get closer to the Sun they...

Using highway traffic as an analogy, AMD described how DirectX 11 acts when multiple queues or lanes of traffic must be fed into the GPU. They must be merged. When traffic comes from more than one direction, it has to meter the traffic. That's just not the fastest way to get things done.

So it began a marketing campaign targeted to the country.  Coca-Cola had been available unofficially in France since 1919 and officially since 1933, but after the war Coke decided to raise its profile and capitalize on the proliferation of refrigerators in French homes.  Under the slogan "Drink Fresh," vans toured the streets and salesmen distributed samples to adults and children, in what Coke now calls "La révolution du froid" (The cold revolution).

The South Korean arch-rivals said Tuesday that a consensus had been... reached among top executives from both sides that it was time to focus on improving their products and services for the customers, according to a joint statement. Both companies will drop charges and inform the authorities about the agreement.

"A Public Menace"

Slate - 31 Mar 2015 09:45
In 1916 a 41-year-old man in Los Angeles published a short pamphlet called "The Rise and Fall of Free Speech in America."

He quoted dozens of journalists and politicians who opposed censorship, cited Shakespeare and the Bible for good measure, and protested that "this new art was seized by the powers of intolerance as an excuse for an assault on our liberties."

LG has sent out invitations to events on April 28th and 29th in New York, London, Paris, Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul, at which it's likely to announce its latest flagship smartphone. The tagline is... "See the Great. Feel the Great," with the "G" rendered as the logo used for the company's G series phones. Last May, LG launched the G3 in the same six cities after sending an invite with similar hints. This time around, though, the invite is etched on what looks to be a notebook. One can only hope that the presumed G4 doesn't take its design cues from 2013-era Samsung fake stitching. Whatever LG has in store for us, we'll be on hand to bring you the news on April 28th.

With the rise of Ford's brand perception in the past decade, it has become strikingly apparent that Lincoln needs a change. A big one. Nothing says that like a brand new Lincoln Continental. The Continental is a famous American nameplate that has symbolized "American Exceptionalism" for decades -- Frank Sinatra wrote a line in a song about it just because he liked it -- though it doesn't mean much to most buyers outside of Baby Boomers.

The companies have been fighting since the start... of the year when a license agreement covering Apple's use of Ericsson patents on LTE high-speed wireless technology expired. Apple complained that Ericsson had asked too much money for the patents during negotiations. Apple sued Ericsson in January, arguing the patents are not essential for LTE technology and that the price was excessive. Ericsson counter-sued two days later, alleging Apple had infringed the patents and that the price was fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory--the requirement for patents used in industry standards.

Can Ted Cruz Play Well With Others?

Ted Cruz defended his lack of executive experience this weekend saying that he is not a "community organizer." The Texas senator explained that unlike Barack Obama, who also ran for president after... one term in the Senate, he had accomplished more before becoming a legislator. Cruz pointed to his period as solicitor general of Texas--an answer that was itself a display of the debating talents his supporters say qualify him to be president. Cruz wasn't answering the question as much as redefining the criteria. A lack of executive experience cannot be overcome by simply not having the attributes of the last president who also lacked it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney just bought a script that revisits the story of Fa Mulan, a female warrior who fought... in the Chinese army, that fans first saw in the Academy Award-nominated animated film Mulan back in 1998. Mulan is only the latest property to earn a remake, though it's the first to feature a non-white lead. Disney has had reasonable success with its retellings so far. Though neither film were critical darlings, both Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent fared well at the box office. Cinderella opened in theaters three weeks ago to critical acclaim, and has so far earned $335.7 million in global ticket sales.

Spend... $40,000 on solar panels for your roof, and you won't get your money back in lower electricity bills for a dozen years or more. You'd have to drive a hybrid car tens of thousands of miles to recapture the extra costs in the form of lower spending on gasoline. As a result, going green has historically only been an option to those who can afford to make conspicuous displays of virtuous consumption--not the 1 percent, perhaps, but certainly the top 25 percent.

Coachella And Lollapalooza Ban Selfie Sticks

The Huffington Post - 30 Mar 2015 22:52
Coachella And Lollapalooza BanLOS ANGELES (AP) -- You can bring your beach towels and floral headbands, but forget that selfie stick if you're planning to go to the Coachella or Lollapalooza music festivals. The devices, which... grasp cellphones to allow people to take pictures of themselves farther away from their faces, are banned at this summer's festivals in Indio, California, and Chicago. Coachella dismissed them as "narsisstics" on a list of prohibited items. Selfie sticks have become a popular but polemical photo-taking tool: Avid picture takers like snapping their own shots in front of monuments and sunsets, but critics dismiss them as obnoxious and potentially dangerous to others around them. A spokeswoman for Coachella would not comment on the restriction. Lollapalooza representatives did not return a request...

Airline pilot says quick-fixIn the haste to sustain the illusion that we can somehow achieve complete safety and security, we are rushing to speculate about how the Germanwings disaster could have been prevented, and two trends... are undermining even the most well-intentioned efforts.

Speculation replaces facts, and hasty conclusions are drawn by questionable "experts," presented with no mention that they're not based in fact.
