Hey, either Macs don't count much on the desktop, or we may have to finally lay the "year of the Linux desktop" joke to rest.
Google's low-cost Chromebooks outsold Apple's range of Macs for the first time in the US recently. While IDC doesn't typically break out Windows vs. Chromebook sales, IDC analyst Linn Huang...

Speechless ...
 
ISIS’s efforts at changing educational curricula have led it to adopt, at the beginning of the 2014 school year, new books for middle school children aged 12 to 15. The book Kitab al-Tawhid by the famous Islamic scholar Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab—founder of Wahhabism—is one of the most important foundations of ISIS’s middle school education.

This is, of course, devastating for those who try to excuse the Saudi Royal House as somehow not deeply responsible for modern Sunni irredentist radicalism, as the Wahhabis are simply a branch of that clan.

It gets better. Additionally ISIS changed the internationally acknowledged mathematical symbol for adding (+), replacing it with a new symbol represented by the letter z. ISIS’s reasoning is that the + sign indicates the cross, which is used worldwide as a symbol for Christians.
ISIS teachers neglect subjects that used to be taught, such as science, mathematics, art and music. Instead, children are taught how to fight in jihad.

Okay, sticking this much harder landing on the barge means that Elon's SpaceX team really knows their stuff. No fluke but a new era in a can-do civilization that deep down loves science and believes in the future.  Apocalypse-be-damned. Ain't gonna happen.  We are awakening.

For the second time in less than a month, SpaceX has landed the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket on a ship at sea.

It's been called "Brin's Corollary to Moore's Law." That CAMERAS get smaller, faster, cheaper, better and more mobile at a rate much, much faster than Moore's Law.  This article clues you in to the latest aspects, e.g. lensless cameras that won't even have that telltale glint. Micro air vehicles (MAV) - drones the size of flies, that will follow you and "go-pro" your life, whether you were the camera's owner or not.  And cameras that see around corners.  The lesson to all this? Stop imagining that you will ever protect freedom and privacy by hiding! We can live in this looming future while retaining some freedom, even enhancing freedom! But only if we learn to stop worrying and love the drone.

Phil Plait explains yet another spectacular image from rapidly advancing astronomy - a vastly better view of the expanding and ongoing Tycho supernova. But don’t stop there. Go on to the Chandra XRay site to see amazing closeups and the story of an unlucky star that was too close when the Tycho blew up! In fact, the companion star “caused” the supernova.

Observations spanning 15 years reveal the physical expansion of debris hurled into space by a supernova.

Tomorrow, in the Nevada desert, one of the companies working to develop a hyperloop will deliver a proof of concept—the first full-scale demonstration of the transportation technology.

Tomorrow, in the Nevada desert, one of the companies working to develop a hyperloop will deliver a proof of concept—the first full-scale demonstration of the transportation technology that will be able to travel at speeds over 300 mph, radically changing the future of transit along the way.

Are black holes quantum computers?  Might the mega-sun BH at the center of our galaxy be an uber quantum engine, actually operating on whatever information falls into it?  This physicist thinks that gravitons may thread across the event horizon, providing the ‘hair’ that John Wheeler claimed Black Holes cannot have.  They do this by forming a critical Bose-Einstein condensate… or so a new model suggests, and the insight may open up yet another approach to designing quantum computers.  Now the bigger question… is that where THIS simulation is currently being run?
Might nature’s bottomless pits actually be ultra-efficient quantum computers? That could explain why data never dies

Many of you recall the thrilling sight of Jupiter getting whacked multiple times by the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 in 1994. Well Phil Plait reveals some video taken this month by an amateur astronomer, which appears to reveal another one smacking the King World. Yipe!  This’ll affect the statistics, for sure. 
Jupiter, the solar system's punching bag: It got whacked by a comet or an asteroid a couple of weeks ago, and two amateur astronomers caught it on video.

Computer Science Research and Teaching
Introduction
After rather classical University studies (DEUG MIAS, Licence info, Maitrise Info, DEA I3), I've done a phd on program analysis for security.

Currently I'm co-leader of LSE a small lab working on systems and computer security. I'm also a programming teacher at EPITA where I teach OCaml/C programming, Algorithm, Java Programming and Parallel Programming.

The LSE lab hosts many security and kernel programming related projects, and I actually leading an experimental project on designing a modern programming language for kernel programming.

Some years ago, I've used to play in a Raw Black Metal band called Olc Sinnsir that has recorded two demo-tapes and full length album (The Throne Of Dead Emotions out on Oaken Shield Records). While I'm not playing for a particular band now, I still have some plans to found a new one oriented over heavy/thrash/progressive influences.

Cuisine maison, accueil sympa, de bon petits plats de qualité avec des bons produits. Et le tout à un prix somme toute raisonnable pour le quartier (entrée + plat + dessert pour 28€, la carte est plus chère.)

Very good breakfast, really nice staff and affordable prices. The perfect place for the morning after a long day walking around London.

Très bien pour un séjour court. Personnel agréable, cadre superbe et piscine très sympa. Le restaurant n'en est pas un par contre (il n'est pas pire que les cantines d'hôtel au même tarif ... ) Par contre le petit déjeuner est complet avec de bonnes viennoiseries et du choix. Le départ est peut être un peu tôt par contre. En bref : un week-end agréable.
