This was already bad; now it's worse.

+Leng See Goh Yes you are right, it's now coming back to bite them in the ass. Cisco is responsible for all the hardware used in the Great Firewall of China, or at least it was at one point, China might be moving to replace their hardware with domestic made stuff now.

+Michael Ott Your answer was useless. And, FYI, I wrote "QuikCalc" 22 years ago, "SmartCalc" 21 years ago, so forgive me for not being as impressed with your (supposed) experience as you are.
For everyone else, I found a way to disable some of these new pop-ups without dumping Chrome:
In Chrome go: "Settings">"Advanced">"Content Settings">"Notifications" and select "Do Not Allow Any Sight to Show Notifications"
When you run across a sight where that's a problem, add it to the "Manage Exceptions" list

“I’ll get calls from Kor [Adana], and he’ll say 'Oh, I’m on set right now and we’re trying to figure out how to say a word,'” McGregor said. "I won’t give it away because you’ll see it soon, but they even want to get the accuracy of how hackers or infosec community say the terms that we use. Things like ee-maks versus em-aks [for Emacs] help reaffirm the show is staying true to life.”
Plus, two of those tech advisors encourage infosec folks to send in hack ideas.

The life and times of scientific ice (some of it lands in a convenience-store-style freezer that would seem more at home holding rows of Häagen-Dazs)
Up close and personal with a new core of very old Antarctic ice.

Quickest ¼ mile, maybe, but no match on the Nürburgring for a McLaren, or for Ferrari, or for Bugatti. Or for a Viper. Or a Corvette. Maybe faster than a Chevy Volt...

VW has a lot going on, but they managed to eke out a very nice small car
Better cabins, safety systems, and electronics make it a player in the small car game.

Euro VWs get 80 mpg. An awesome technological achievement. But the SOBs in the US Fed won't let us have them. Sorry bastards...

Happy Birthday(ish), Linus's baby. #Linux
Just 7.7% of devs are unpaid—because Linux development is worth paying for.
