    Greasemonkey, I was disappointed by that article. It doesn't say anything about how he tasted.

    Japanese authorities ... deemed the banquet legal because there is no law against cannibalism in the country.

    Good to know...

    The cyber cold war continues...

    That's a pretty hefty bit of malware there. Not just after what's on the machine, it also records nearby conversations if there's a mic available, and goes hunting for nearby bluetooth devices to pok around in too.

    I've long been of the belief that this sort of thing has been going on for ages, so it's nice to see some evidence I guess...

    I had a big rave in the New Better Future thread about how increasingly the future would be determined by the people of the developing world.

    So, less than a week after an Egyptian 19-year-old designs a (hypothetical) space drive, an Indian 16-year-old (living in Germany) solves a mathematical problem that's been around since Newton.

    Over the years, i've sat and watched the rise of the machines. From robots replacing welders to Photoshop scything through the ranks of graphic design, just progress, i mumbled to myself, like the weavers and the spinning jenny and all that. You can't stop it, you can't stand in its way, you just have to adapt.
    Won't be much of a problem for me anyway, mobile phones and satellite trackers are a pain, they may have put paid to the three hour layby kips and sneaky popping down to Tescos for a spot of shopping, but they're always going to need drivers...

    Oh dear!

    Insurance companies must be scratching their collective heads over exactly how to assess (and set premiums for) the potential bugs or failures that algorithm controllled vehhicles will undoubtedly exhibit (anyone seen their roomba go a bit nuts for no reason occasionally?).

    ^^LSD? I doubt it. It's more likely to be PCP if drugs are the cause.
