What part of private key did you not understand, Dell? #fail
: Every #Dell #desktop and #laptop shipped since August has contained a bogus root certificate, #eDellRoot. Not only that, but the cert includes its own private key! It’s like #Superfish 2.0...
That means more than 10,000,000 computers were infected at the source, allowing attackers to spoof secure websites. And they could install infected Windows updates, because the certificate is also able to sign code.
Oh, and if you try to remove the cert, Dell’s bloatware reinstalls it. Nice.
What a freakin’ mess. Dell clearly learned nothing from Lenovo’s Superfish débâcle.
I think this is like the third Engadget article I've corrected this year.
Amazon also sells the Meego -- a USB stick PC with 32GB of memory, an extra USB port, and slot for expandable storage that runs Windows 8 you can upgrade to Windows 10, for the same price as this hobbled Chromestick.
This book came up today in a conversation about old programming/technical books. This along with Peter Norton's Guide To Assembly Language were like my nerd bibles in the late 80s. lol

One more observation: Andy Warhol used the image of an ordinary can of Campbell's soup and turned it into art.
Google+ designer -- you're no Andy Warhol. Turning G+ into the color of Campbell's tomato soup isn't the same. Ugly, fugly, horribly ugly.
