SpaceX landing a rocket onto a robotic ship, and almost managing to keep it upright. Very kerbal.

Robotic butterflies!
 
The German company Festo has produced some amazing flying robots, and their butterflies are the latest example of beautiful motion.  (If you like this you'll love their 2012 bird, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnR8fDW3Ilo.)

3D printing 100x faster with uniform strength in all directions and with no layering artifacts. This looks pretty incredible.
What we think of as 3D printing, says Joseph DeSimone, is really just 2D printing over and over ... slowly. Onstage at TED2015, he unveils a bold new technique — inspired, yes, by Terminator 2 — that's 25 to 100 times faster, and creates smooth, strong parts. Could it finally help to fulfill the tremendous promise of 3D printing?

Tobacco companies are not made of the finest available moral fiber. Who would have guessed?

In light of recent news, a reminder of how you can protect your privacy and raise a middle finger at the three- and four-letter agencies who love to violate it.

If you use iOS, use Signal: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/signal-private-messenger/id874139669?mt=8
If you use Android, use Redphone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.thoughtcrime.redphone and TextSecure: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.thoughtcrime.securesms

If the Agencies are after you specifically you are pretty screwed anyway. Making mass surveillance of everyone harder is still worthwhile.

One of my bucket list items since I read my first party report back in 1991 was to attend a european demoparty and compete in a compo.  I competed at NAID '96 and placed there, which was awesome, b...

"The company argued that the Canadian government shouldn't even have resorted to an environmental review and is now seeking $300 million in compensation."
If anyone tries to convince you that TTIP is no threat to a government’s ability to protect its people, just point them to Canada.

  #MarsOne  appears to be mostly a scam. Sigh.
No money, no process, no explanation: An insider speaks out for the first time on the hopelessly flawed scheme to fly to…

A crappy internet video and a 10 minutes skype interview is how many members of the Italian Parliament were chosen. The MarsOne scam seems a child little trick by comparison.

If you work on communications infrastructure, the NSA views you as a target for individual surveillance and compromise as a means to carry out their objectives even if you have done nothing wrong.

This is terrifying. (hi, NSA.)

"GCHQ operatives identified key individuals and their positions within Gemalto and then dug into their emails. In one instance, GCHQ zeroed in on a Gemalto employee in Thailand who they observed sending PGP-encrypted files, noting that if GCHQ wanted to expand its Gemalto operations, “he would certainly be a good place to start.” They did not claim to have decrypted the employee’s communications, but noted that the use of PGP could mean the contents were potentially valuable.

The cyberstalking was not limited to Gemalto. GCHQ operatives wrote a script that allowed the agency to mine the private communications of employees of major telecommunications and SIM “personalization” companies for technical terms used in the assigning of secret keys to mobile phone customers. Employees for the SIM card manufacturers and wireless network providers were labeled as “known individuals and operators targeted” in a top-secret GCHQ document."

On January 17, 2014, President Barack Obama gave a major address on the NSA spying scandal. “The bottom line is that people around the world, regardless of their nationality, should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security and that we take their privacy concerns into account in our policies and procedures,” he said. -- BULLSHIT
American and British spies hacked into the internal computer network of the largest manufacturer of SIM cards in the world.

Lenovo helpfully preinstalled MitM malware on their laptops which destroys the security of HTTPS connections and lets anyone MitM users of those laptops. Wow.
 
Lenovo pre-installs a web proxy that injects ads. It MITMs HTTPS traffic by installing its own trusted root certificate.

Always install your OS manually. Don't trust the OEM's version.

EDIT:  Holy shit, apparently it's the same key for all installs: https://twitter.com/fugueish/status/568258997578371072

(The private key is necessarily present on the machine. So basically if the key is not public already it will be shortly, and anyone will be able to spoof any web site to Lenovo users.)

EDIT2: Uninstalling the app does NOT remove the certificate. https://twitter.com/metsfan/status/568265468173107200
Ok, I will take a look at ESET. Thanks   Yes, VisualDiscovery is part of the bundled software in my lenovo laptop.. It is from a developer called Superfish.

IMHO the problem is even worse. How many people out there have installed Komodia-based software to '-censor- protect their children' ?

What a delight! I liked a lot the real 747-100 cockpit where you can try sitting in the pilot's seat and have a knowledgeable volunteer explain what all the knobs do and what all the dials mean. I've visited quite a few museums related to aviation, but still there was a lot that was new to me such as the unmanned airship-airplane hybrid Avitor which is quite possibly the most steampunk thing I have ever seen. Recommended for anyone interested in airplanes, helicopters, gliders or jetpacks.

Unpretentious and reasonably priced but the food is still great. I had the Roghan Josh with garlic naan and I can heartily recommend it.
