My father always wondered why technology improved so much, except in the area of batteries. This looks like a reasonable start in addressing his concern.

It never ceases to amaze me at how inept the US response to the AAIB has been. This article covers it really well.

It seems that being honest and diligent in making mortgage payments is not the only way to keep your house these days. Not paying also seems to work.

The 2008 financial meltdown and disclosures of secret documents in recent years exposed widespread government overreach and corporate fraud and abuse. As trust in traditional institutions began to sag, global uprisings were spawned to find solutions outside of electoral politics.

Really well written article on why dimbulbs like Jim Cramer will never appreciate people (such as +Elon Musk) who are capable of long(er)-term thinking.
Tesla is not a traditional auto company struggling to one better GM and Toyota in a move-by-move game of chess, it's a California high-tech startup. For Musk, this isn't about tactics and it's not even about strategy. It's about a new industrial revo...

(I'd bet a good digital forensics analysis of the server would turn up that they don't do technology well either.)

Self-explanatory! #nsa   #patriotact  
Read our letter to U.S. House and Senate leadership on how our surveillance laws should be changed. Then add your name to show your support. #United4NSAReform

@briankrebs shows how easily crime can pay, and how difficult keeping up in the "arms race" really is for company security departments.
Earlier this month I wrote about Antidetect, a commercial tool designed to help thieves evade fraud detection schemes employed by many e-commerce companies. That piece walked readers through a sales video for Antidetect showing the software being used to buy products online with stolen credit ...

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
