You thought they were dead? You thought you'd heard the last of them, but yes, SCO are back and set to ruffle IBM's feathers all over again with their reactivated $5 Billion lawsuit.

If you can't beat them lock them out! Microsoft appear to be on course to implement their plan to stop anyone putting what they want on a PC or Laptop with Secure Boot scheduled to be implemented on Windows 10.

♫ ♪ "Happy birthday to you..........." ♬ ♩ The GNU Manifesto turns 30! If you didn't know that, don't worry, clearly most of the Internet is unaware too.

When does an online fantasy cross the line into criminal conspiracy? That’s the issue the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is currently weighing in United States v. Gilberto Valle, the so-called “cannibal cop” case.

OpenSSL patched a “high” severity flaw as part of a patch batch on Thursday that turned out to be nowhere near as scary as widely feared.

CeBIT attendees on Thursday fell victims to a series of well-executed hacks. Thankfully, they weren’t malicious in origin; instead, they were live demonstrations by notorious ex-hacker Kevin Mitnick.

The Islamic State has taken over Tataouine, the town in Tunisia where multiple Star Wars movies were filmed.

WTF...

via +Tim Cuthbertson 
 
RadioShack's recent bankruptcy filing means that it has to close nearly 2,000 stores and sell off many of its assets. Some of those assets are to be expected, like trademarks and store leases. But other assets might come as a shock to consumers -- assets like personal customer information and email addresses.

We have 2 Maplins within 10 miles of us. Radio Shack hasn't been prominent in the UK for decades. I haven't seen a branch since the early 90s.

And the Radio Shack Saga continues (well just a different article). Of course I almost always gave false information. I think the last time I used a real address was when I lived in New York (16 years ago).

Perfect example how America fails because we have absolutely no laws protecting private information, outside of Healthcare.  In Europe this is totally illegal.
