One very interesting pattern I observed in poking at this exploit pack — and 0thers recently — is the decreasing prevalence or complete absence of reported infections from Google Chrome

...

Chrome and Firefox both now include integrated PDF readers, and ... exploits against Adobe’s PDF reader have traditionally been a key contributor to exploit kit infection statistics.

...

Instead, those users are hit with a social engineering attack that tries to trick them into installing the malware by disguising it as a Chrome browser update.

How our Solar System really moves

Being a part of the Solar System, we always view it from a fixed perspective. As in, we don't really imagine the Sun (the center of our solar system) to be moving too.

But let's say we "zoom out" a little bit then we'll see an extraordinary trajectory of the Sun and its planets. This GIF shows a high-speed simulation of the motion.

The author of that video made a followup because so many people complained about reference frames:

Are you tired of how slow the average "git filter-index" takes on those giant git repositories? There's now a replacement workflow that works orders of magnitude faster, if you're willing to have a JVM installed.

Great picture of Google campus, Elliot. I assume the shadow figure is yours. BTW, really enjoying G+. We have been using G+ hangouts to try and plan some meatspace get togethers late this year or early next. Will keep you informed.

Starting December 3, the world’s governments meet behind closed doors to discuss the future of the Internet. This meeting of the International Telecommunication Union or #ITU will take place in Dubai. Some governments want to use this meeting in Dubai to increase censorship and regulate the Internet.

A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. And a #freeandopen Internet depends on you.

Story
Tagline
Software Engineer on Google Chrome
Introduction
I am employed by Google and work on Google Chrome. I was heavily involved in the Linux porting effort, specifically the GTK-ization of the interface.

I wrote rlvm, a re-implemented game engine that's compatible with a proprietary Windows system. It can play 7 commercial games to completion.
