Bought a new toy - it will not arrive for awhile (indigogo) but hope it will be useful for home automation projects.  Programmable with Javascript, my least favorite language.

Thunderstruck by AC/DC playing on Iranian computers in the middle of the night? Not sure if I believe it, but weird enough that it's plausible.

The NES4001 was the first VPN / layer 3 encryption product.  I found this one on a surplus electronics site. It appears to be intact.

The Apple 'gotofail' security flaw looks very suspicious.

It's a really interesting failure that is hard to find in any typical  certificate validation tests.  The nature of the 'bug' is the ideal type of implementation error that is readily exploitable and hard to detect (without source code).  The security flaw only shows up if a specially constructed server swaps keys at a point in the TLS exchange that results in incorrectly validating the certificate/key. 

You would think that a developer writing the code or anyone reviewing would notice the duplicate line (line 631 http://opensource.apple.com/source/Security/Security-55471/libsecurity_ssl/lib/sslKeyExchange.c )  The extra 'goto Fail' occurs in a location where no lines of code were directly changed from the prior version (AKAICT).  Bugs are common, but a extra 'cut paste' error does not seem viable.  It's not likely a merge error since the lines before and after are not touched from the prior version.

The big question is if Apple can identify when and how this 'bug' was inserted.

Very surprised to see that McDonald's apparently assaulted the "father of wearable computing" (Dr. Steve Mann) six months ago and has done nothing to acknowledge his claims that seem to be well backed up by images from his wearable device. 
Hi pioneering efforts with wearable foreshadow the very interesting social impacts possible with the broader adoption of wearable devices (like the Google Glass).

Why use NFC if barcodes will do?
 
Will Apple bypass #NFC  again with Passbook on #iOS  6 and the #iPhone5?

Interesting - as WI-Fi Direct gets deployed ever device will be able to look like a "hotspot".  
Is this a security thing to prevent rogue APs, or are they protecting profits of the local hotspot?

Answered my own question with a little searching:

This month will be the start of a new wireless wide-band battle: WiGig (60GHz)  versus the return of UWB (6-10GHz).  Ultra Wide Band (UWB) is being resurrected as a variant of the recently completed 802.11ac standard.  WiGig at 60GHz is furhter along in it's standardization process and attempts to wear the clothing of "Wi-Fi", but is really it's own new technology.
The resurrected 6-10GHz band being adjacent to the current Wi-Fi 5GHz band is potentially an easy target for companies to extend their chips into new spectrum with very high throughput.
But does the market really need either technology.  They are both have a very limited range that makes them primarily a solution for docking a very close data exchange.
Still - big money is now bet bet on two different technologies - supporters of one technology will be very threatened by the other - so the battles are beginning.
The first major volley will be in a couple of weeks in efforts to extend 802.11ac into 6-1`0GHz in the IEEE standards.

The Molino Stucky Hilton is in a beautiful building and the staff provides great service, but these are not enough to compensate for the inconvenience of location. The shuttle only runs hourly to San Marco Zaccaria. The drinks are 5 times more at the Hilton bar than at local pub.
