Banks accept Dubai MOSAD assassins' stolen IDs !

Our investigation has revealed that the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) has either failed to cancel the stolen passport credentials of the three Australian citizens used in the attack, or has failed to update the My Passport database used by some Australian financial institutions to verify the identity of new customers.

Exclusive: How Google’s Algorithm Rules the Web

Want to know how Google is about to change your life?

LATEST: Xerox sues Google, Yahoo over search patents
In its complaint, Xerox said various services from Google and Yahoo--including AdWords, Yahoo Search, and YouTube--fall under the scope of the patents, entitled "System for Automatically Generating Queries" and "Method and Apparatus for the Integration of Information and Knowledge."

9/11 top evidence

Shortly after the attack the F-16 fighters established a combat air patrol over the nation’s capital. However, the order was don't probe too deeply into the terrorist attacks of September 11

BAD HARDWARE: Do you somewhere see the Boeing remnants at the Pentagon ?
NO. I can only see the cars driving nearby highway, just like nothing has happened !

Google wants to offer 1Gbps broadband

Google recently announced it will attempt to provide a select group of US communities with internet access at an unprecedentedly high rate of 1 gigabit per second – between 100 and 1000 times greater than what's available in most countries. It's 10 times faster than homes receive in the online gaming haven of South Korea – where they plan to have gigabit delivery in 2012.

The truth on bad Win 7 DRAM usage

According to XPnet's polling, Windows 7 PCs sport an average of 3.3GB of memory, compared to 1.7GB in the average Windows XP computer. (Machines running Windows Vista contain an average of 2.7GB.)
"But the numbers show just how much larger and more complex Windows 7 is than XP."

BAD HARDWARE: My arse shows. I am writing this happily using 1GB DRAM laptop with 32bit Win 7 Ultimate installed together with 15 additional applications. And physical memory usage is still 62%.
Handles 15000
Threads 500
Processes 50
Those Win 7 tweaks however are not applied.

Lunar mirrors deteriorate

Soon to stop functioning.
Obama should help make them working to test general relativity. Well, lets replace them then. Provided they are there at all , brought by Apollo astronauts.

After the Vietnam, Afganistan or Iran should be the next Moon landing target in 2020

I mean the places where the huge U.S. war budget will completely land down instead astronauts on Moon. Just like in Vietnam case.

Says who?
Eighteen-inch wafers will replace 12-inch as the mainstream in 2015, according to Joo-Tai Moon, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics.

Flight 447: Killer microprocessor !

A case started in a California district court on behalf of some of the relatives who died when an Air France flight 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on June 1 2009.
"The microprocessors and other component parts designed and manufactured by Intel were defective when they left the custody and control of Intel, and a proximate cause of the crash," the filing says.

Microprocessors and other components "failed to adequately filter out inaccurate data and provided erroneous information; the microprocessors used in the flight control computers, ADIRUs and other components prevented the installed software from functioning properly and created inaccurate data" and so failed "properly detect and warn of the accumulation of ice on the aircraft".

Six reasons why graphene will prevail CMOS in the end

Here's six reasons why Meindl thinks graphene will drive the industry in the post-CMOS era:

1. Graphene has ''a mechanical strength-to-weight ratio exceeding that of any known material.''

2. ''Carrier mobility exceeds 200,000-cm2/Vs.''

3. ''Carriers with zero effective mass that propagate as 'Dirac fermions' in a manner similar to photons with a velocity 300 times less than the speed of light without scattering for distances in the micrometer range.''

4. ''The capacity to conduct current densities as large as one thousand times greater than copper without electromigration.''

5. ''Record values of more than 5,000W/mK for room temperature thermal conductivity.''

6. ''The capability to serve as a source, channel drain regions of a field effect transistor (FET) and as an interconnect.''

Mysterious Google rerouting

And recently Google signed Cooperation with NSA?

Google and others have said they will need Terabit Ethernet products as early as 2013.

Though there are no 100 Gbit Ethernet products I can use now.

Google is not alone: NSA contributed to XP, Vista, Win7

Microsoft said that it has sought help from the NSA over the last four years. In 2007, NSA officials acknowledged working with Microsoft during the development of Windows Vista to help boost its defenses against computer viruses, worms and other attacks. Apparently its skills can be seen in the Windows XP consumer version and the Windows Server 2003 for corporate customers,as well as in Vista.
As far as in the year 2007.
We are so eager for the latest NSA software push contributions in Win 7.

Declassified: Israel's attack on US NSA ship

One of the most controversial events in the history of U.S.-Israeli relations was the attack by Israeli aircraft, during the midst of the Six-Day War of June 1967, on the USS Liberty, a ship assigned to gather signals intelligence on behalf of the National Security Agency. The attack left thirty-four Americans dead and 171 wounded.

Christmas breakthrough: Chinese hackers broke into NSA, service chiefs' comps

US NSA is as you know, famous Google security adviser.
More than 200 computers belonging to top-ranking government officials, including the three service chiefs and former India national security advisor (NSA) MK Narayanan, were compromised in the hacking operation that originated in China on December 15, it has emerged. Narayanan has been heavily criticized in leading up to the Mumbai terrorists attacks !
Sources disclose that the computer of at least one service chief was totally compromised as he opened the malicious mail sent with a PDF document carrying a hidden ‘trojan’ spyware.
LATEST: China has closed what it claims to be the largest hacker training website in the country and arrested three of its members, domestic media reported on Monday.

BAD HARDWARE: The only consolation is that they were not the terrorists. Though, hm, even those could buy in the black market what they can't brake themself, isn't it?
This time, Chinese hackers used botnet servers based in Russia to launch the attack on computers of government officials. Copy?

Power 7: IBM readies 10 PFlops supercomputer

IBM: Envisioning the world's fastest supercomputer
IBM launches Power7 chip, systems

"We took some of that genetic material from the Cell program--ways to do floating point (calculations)--and embedded that right into the Power7 core," McCredie said in an interview with CNET.

But that's not the only thing that makes the Power7 chip special. It integrates eight processing cores in one chip package and each core can execute four tasks--called "threads"--turning an individual chip into a virtual 32-core processor. As a yardstick, Intel's high-end Xeon processors typically have two threads per processing core.

BAD HARDWARE: Lets calculate its power consumption. At 1Gflops/W fastest supercomputer will consume 10 MW for processors only. Congrats.

The NSA - Google tie

The NSA would also be able to help Google understand what methods are being used to penetrate its system, the sources said. Google, for its part, may share information on the types of malicious code seen in the attacks -- without disclosing proprietary data about what was taken, which would concern shareholders, sources said.

BAD HARDWARE: Seems like Big Brother is sometimes benevolent.

Arthur C. Clarke's 2001 Newspad finally arrives, nine years late

When he tired of official reports and memoranda and minutes, he would plug his foolscap-sized Newspad into the ship's information circuit and scan the latest reports from Earth. One by one he would conjure up the world's major electronic papers; he knew the codes of the more important ones by heart, and had no need to consult the list on the back of his pad. Switching to the display unit's short-term memory, he would hold the front page while he quickly searched the headlines and noted the items that interested him.Each had its own two-digit reference; when he punched that, the postage-stamp-sized rectangle would expand until it neatly filled the screen and he could read it with comfort. When he had finished, he would flash back to the complete page and select a new subject for detailed examination.
"If the analogy with the iPod and iPhone holds up, history suggests, then, that a hockey stick in iPad sales is unlikely to occur before fiscal 2012, which is beyond our forecast period."

American carriers have publically stated they want 100G Ethernet systems today

American carriers have publically stated they want 100G systems today, but my expectation is they will be deployed in about two or three years
The groups are already looking to define their needs beyond 100G, Foisel said.

BAD HARWDARE: In 5 years, backplanes will thus commercially run at 50 Gpbs.

Big Brother is your biggest friend !

Anonyomus social networking? No.
There are very few people on any social network who belong to exactly the same groups. A 'group fingerprint' could thus allow websites to identify previously anonymous visitors.
According to Holz, other large social networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook could also be used for this type of test, although the shear size of these networks and the resulting data volumes would present a problem.
