Stolen data may hurt badly too !

Heinrich Kieber, a 43-year-old data entry clerk, not only took sensitive information on 1,400 clients from the bank and stored it on discs, he then sold the information to tax authorities in various countries including the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.

His actions sparked a major tax evasion investigation. In the UK alone the Inland Revenue may prosecute more than 300 people in order to reclaim £ 300 million in unpaid taxes as a result of the information handed over by the whistleblower.

Intel calls for its human rights in EU appeal !

Intel's precise legal arguments aren't known. Lets speculate:

1. Intel didn't know for EU laws and human rights when it payed humans not to buy AMD?
2. What about human rights of ethnic cleansed Palestinians whose land Intel used for its Kiryat Gat fab? They don't have any human rights? Right? Add items 1+2 to get a new human rights quality !

Apollo 13 at launch: Stronger rockets should be used for Ares driving crew safe escape or ..

Landing parachutes will simply melt down in case of buster rockets explosion. Gulp. How NASA managed that kind accident never happened in Apollo missions? Similar rockets, now mostly used to loft communications satellites, come in configurations that use only liquid fuels. Only now I understand why is necessary to prematurely shut down Space Shuttle programs and why the hell it never had built in emergency escape system. OMG, they were simply doomed in that case. Thus to reach Moon and return the crew safely, two launch are needed.
1. Early launch vehicle for astronauts capsule alone (remember John Glenn ?).
2. Heavy Ares launch for Command and Lunar modules.

Both landing systems are needed.

Final proof: A solar rover prototype that will explore the Apollo moon landing

Solar power doesn’t have to be limited to Earth-based gadgets — at least, not if Carnegie Mellon roboticist Dr. William Whittaker has anything to say about it. Whitaker and Astrobiotic Technology have teamed up to develop a solar rover prototype that will explore the Apollo moon landing site and find out how materials used in the mission have fared over all these years.
NASA wasn't interested in that problem for Mars journeys or what?
tay tuned to find out the results of the team’s experiments when the solar rover lands on the Apollo moon site in 2011!

The man whom someone has stolen 4G Iphone commited suicide

Taiwan news say his boss beat him up before he killed himself. The man then jumped from a 12-story building last week. Whether he has been trying 4G iPhone last time during the fall alas isn't known. To China, that is normal way of their everyday life.
However, it is known that after 12 story fall COTS iPod is still functional.
If it is not the case for the 4G iPhone too, further aerodynamics tests in Apple's iWind tunnel should be continued looking for the best 4G iPhone prototypes. Mr. Sun's death has sparked a public backlash in China, where Hon Hai's hierarchical management style has been the subject of criticism. In August 2006, Hon Hai sued two Chinese journalists in Shenzhen for reporting workers assembling iPods in its Shenzhen factory were forced to work overtime. Beaten regularly ? It's been Apple's strategy to use the element of surprise in building up sales mania whenever it launches a new model of iPod or iPhone. And in the interest of protecting its effectiveness, Apple imposes immense pressure on its suppliers and contractors to maintain secrecy. Secret contract option with Apple requires dead penalty for any prototype loss ?!

NASA actually don't know who left the Apollo 14 traces

LATEST on the Apollo 14:
NASA says those are astronaut footpaths.
Obviously, Apollo 14 astronauts had had two wheels instead of foots. Not like this one below. Beside, someone later has stolen huge and shiny plate antenna left on Moon, on the left side of LM base!!
And do you see 7 meters large round crater just in front of your eyes! Gone with wind ?

Well, picture on the left gives one idea who left the wheel traces on "Moon". ALSEP was pretty heavy on Earth, but easy to carry on Moon, being 6 times lighter. The total mass of the Apollo-16 ALSEP was ~250 lbs, or 41.5 lbs moon weight, so easy to carry by one man (picture above left). But, on Earth rickshaw was needed, picture left, being astronaut equipment alone is too heavy !
From the ALSEP documentation:
A-14 had difficulty releasing one of the Boyd bolts on an ALSEP sub-pallet when the guide cup became full of dirt. They commented that there seemed to be no way to avoid getting the experiments dirty during transport and deployment. Also, there was always at least one side of the central station in the shade, which made seeing the bolts difficult. On the traverse to the deployment site, the pallets on either side of the antenna mast ("barbell") oscillated vertically and the mast flexed, making the assembly rather difficult to carry. However, they believed the "barbell" arrangement to be suitable for traverses of as much as 150 meters. When erecting the central station the sunshield did not lock in the "up" position, but the scientists in the back room at JSC noticed it and had the crew return to fix it. The communication between these scientists and the crew on the surface was, by some accounts, too "filtered" to have good interaction under the tight timelines that existed.

A second EVA period began at 3:11 a.m. EST February 6. The two astronauts loaded the mobile equipment transporter (MET) - used for the first time - with photographic equipment, tools, and a lunar portable magnetometer.
BAD HARDWARE proposal: Rickshaws was used or not at all ? We know all LM ascendings from Moon were shooted. It is easy to convince us. Simply, post them online.

2. Astronaut footpath is visible from 100km orbit? Hahahahhahahha
3. Well, not footpaths alone but their debris.
4. Where is then Antares Lunar module dust debris after ascending blow out ? No ascending ? Or no dust there?
5. Do you see the Lunar rovers left in missions 15, 16 and 17, shooted up here.
6. Where are their surface tracks ?

7. Anyone else saw Apollo 15, 16, 17 ?
8. Why laser reflector located close west of ALSEP is cut off?
8. Where are 3D surface LRO shoots ?

Moon landing hoax is now 40 years old !

NASA did manage to land (a) men at Moon and return them safely !, but wasn't able to archive spectacular high resolution video tapes as a definite proof of its claim?
Hahahahahahahhahahahahha. Don't make fools of yourself NASA people anymore. Original tapes probably left in top secret studio where they were produced. Someone should look at there.
LATEST: Don't look there the tapes definitely were erased and reused:
The original recordings of the first humans landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and re-used.

Let me now to reformulate my finding above: NASA did manage to land (a) men at Moon and return them safely !, but wasn't able to keep the tape as a proof of that historical accomplishment safely !! HAHAHAHHAHAHHHA.
What more, NASA had had enough $40B budget to return men safely, but left in the end without money to buy an extra video tape for archive !. After multiple perfect Moon landings, NASA could get a lot of private donations for that pesky tape, not for only one, but for the whole Saturn rocket house full of archive tapes.

The Lunar Module Eagle was a surprisingly fragile machine.
Its skin was "so thin one of us could have taken a pencil and jammed it through the side of the ship," Buzz Aldrin said. Perhaps this hidden fact was behind the NASA decision to make fake Moon landing in a safer place. On Earth.

OMG: Oil prices in 3% rise after Intel's $700M bubble

Global stocks and crude oil prices jumped 3.0 percent or more on Wednesday after blockbuster earnings from Intel and a raft of economic news suggested the U.S. economy may be pulling out of a deep recession.

More about that hilarious bullshit read at always cautious Th'inq
"Intel actually sold its garbage processor stocks to China."

BAD HARDWARE: Thus, my drive is more expensive because Intel sold garbage processors to China ?. These processors consumes a lot of power. Chinese drives a lot of cars, and after this price rise they will drive of course less.
Miraculously, CO2 foot print for China remained the same, because the same power consumed by Intel processors is spared by less oil burnt.
Who dares to say that Intel isn't eco friendly company? Intel is actually in net losses $398M ? Though, we can say now their losses are in Intel's inverted logic
less than expected.

NASA to burn Space station in 2016 !

Though it is from NASA, enough is enough.

We want to see Space station delivered first to Moon orbit, than landed o Moon as a research station.
How it will reach Moon orbit? Booster rockets. How it will descent to Moon? Using retro rockets, than in the last phase inflatable balloons like at Mars rovers. Or /and space cranes like in latest Mars lab to be used in 2012.
Make a Moon hotel if nothing else. We desperately need a lunar base there. Regardless how old it is. Anything is simply better than nothing.

We choose not to land at Moon !

Not because it is hard, but because it is easy.

Who the hell simultaneously shoot both of us at Moon? Picture on the left is from Apollo 11 mission at UNIVAC archives.How we really accomplished it is somewhat secretly showed for the first time here.

InterPlanetaryNet (TM) is on !

The interplanetary internet now has its first permanent node in space, aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Its new capability has already speeded up the transfer of data back to Earth by about four times, says BioServe's Kevin Gifford. If data is lost during a link, the system automatically transmits lost data later. Until nowm someone had to schedule a second attempt.

First (a) man at Moon is suspiciously quiet

"To my knowledge he has done two television interviews in the last 40 years - and he says nothing about what he felt about anything. He will talk about matters of fact and that's it"
The music he took on the mission to the Moon was deeply eccentric," says Smith. "Most astronauts took one classical piece, and one country and western.Two years after his historic journey, in August 1971, Armstrong left Nasa and decided to become a teacher."
Ostensibly, it was a very strange decision. He could have done anything," says Smith.

BAD HARDWARE: He couldn't stand fake Moon landings out any more? He was afraid of quandary questions about his own Moon landing after that ?

Did the hell anyone ever see public and commercial potential of a celebrating song playing say by Armstrong with banjo at Moon? No? Why not? Umm, there is no air on Moon. Well, there were no men on Moon too, so what? Why was this hoax needed at all to NASA? To distract public opinion focus from domestic and foreign problems far from Earth.

Two new 5 minutes storage rules

In 1987, Jim Gray and Gianfranco Putzolu published their now-famous five-minute rule for trading off memory and I/O capacity. Based on then-current prices and performance characteristics of Tandem equipment, Gray and Putzolu found the price of RAM to hold a 1KB record was about equal to the (fractional) price of a disk drive required to access such a record every 400 seconds.

Now? Seems we will get soon a new level in storage hierarchy for a 5 minutes rule: Flash storage.
The 20-year-old five-minute rule for RAM and disks still holds, but for ever-larger disk pages. Moreover, it should be augmented by two new five-minute rules: one for small pages moving between RAM and flash memory and one for large pages moving between flash memory and traditional disks.

The latest complete version of the system, known as Einstein, won't be fully installed for 18 months, according to current and former officials, seven years after it was first rolled out. This system doesn't protect networks from attack. It only raises the alarm after one has happened.

Building a crash-proof Internet

Finally, a truth on bad Internet

Anything that makes the internet more resilient should be good news, and not just for the millions of ordinary people who use it to book holidays or twitter to their friends. The financial impact of a net outage can be huge: online commerce is now worth over $7 trillion annually, representing about 12 per cent of global GDP. A 2005 study by researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich calculated that cutting off all links to the internet would cost Switzerland over $3 billion per week - around 1 per cent of its GDP. And with e-commerce expected to account for 18 per cent of global GDP by 2010, the impact of failure is set to grow.

Solution is network backdoor.
The key is OpenFlow. With the cooperation of the manufacturer, a small OpenFlow program can be added to almost any router, where it acts like a remote control for the proprietary algorithms and hardware inside.
