A word of caution if you're planning on buying a laptop in the future.
Superfish may make it trivial for attackers to spoof any HTTPS website.

Where's the Twitch for coders to live stream? :-D
Twitch made streaming video games into a hugely popular phenomenon, so what could be next big livestreaming thing? Perhaps it's watching other people code. An emerging trend appears ...

Our internet is safe (for now!) Anything else was a 'solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist.'

Thanks to the #FCC for revising net neutrality rules to promote an #OpenInternet !

EDIT: The internet finally being regulated as an "information service" IS GOOD for open internet as a whole. Before this, companies were private and could (and did) throttle anyone they wanted.

Now ISP are not allowed to do block or throttle ANY traffic, or require paid priority of traffic. Also, FCC is able to investigate and intervene when ISPs overstep. I'd say it's a win...as much as it can be.

I don't want to see the internet in the hands of the government, but I'd want it controlled by privately-motivated monopolies even less.

+Will Weatherly​ my interpretation of the article is that ARPANET evolved and continue to evolve. In 1989/1990 George H W Bush started the process to change the name and hand it over to private enterprise to run as the US military could not prevent unauthorised access and had already established ARPANET II aka milnet. All the article has done is emphasise the different names to fool people into thinking they are different networks.

Thank you for confronting my knowledge, which forced me to do some research. It seems to indicate the inspiration for the internet goes back to the 1950's when the football was created. See http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_football

I wrote something for the first time in...forever! What was your favorite arcade game?
Art by DKNG Studios When I was 14, I could often be found in malls. No, I never set foot in a clothing store. I dodged the perfume-wielding kiosk workers like they were Pac-Man ghosts, and we all know food court offerings are not what lured people to malls. Yet there I was, from open to close - in one spot. The mall arcade, playing Cruis'n USA. This may sound sad to you, but it defined my childhood. If you were also a kid in the ...

I could muddle through a Monday, or I could dream of attending this instead. (Naturally, my song suggestions for drone choreography is "Safety Dance." What's yours?)
Drones can do all sorts of things, but how good are they at entertainment? We'll likely find out this year during the world first drone show in Amsterdam.
