Serious Flaw Emerges In Quantum Cryptography

In recent years, however, physicists have raised expectations that this problem has been solved by the invention of quantum key distribution. Technology transfer, intellectual property, and cockroach living. Radical Conceptual Innovation In After Virtue, Alasdair McIntyre points out an argument made by Karl Popper–that new technology cannot be predicted with any specificity: Some time in the Stone Age you and I are discussing the future and I predict that within the next ten years someone will invent the wheel.

Keeping your Mac locked down: a Mac OS X security primer: Page 1

It's a well-trumpeted aspect of the OS, marketed in detail on the website. Mac OS X has integrated smartcard support and Apple has certified the OS under the Common Criteria guidelines; a section of Apple's developer site is devoted to the subject of security. At the same time, Apple didn't offer cryptographically signed software updates until its hand was forced in July 2002. The company is notorious for boiling down release notes for software updates to "provides bug fixes and security updates" (although the separate mailings posted to the security-announce list do tend to offer a little more detail).

While other Unix distributions tend to patch holes in open-source code relatively quickly, Apple sometimes delays rolling out a security fix in the open-source components of Mac OS X for months or even years. The phrase "security through obscurity" gets tossed around from time to time when discussing Mac OS X. Mac OS X: Rebuild Your Mac with 20 Useful Downloads. Hacker Factor: Gender Guesser.

Expressing Technology: A Roundtable With Sir James Dyson

Photo: Dave Mosher/Wired.com On Wednesday, Sept. 14, Wired hosted a roundtable with Sir James Dyson at our New York offices. Dyson and his staff began by showing off their new vacuum cleaner (the DC 41) and Dyson Hot, a new fan/space heater, which was being introduced later that day. We asked Sir James questions about every aspect of emerging and commercial technology, ranging from intellectual property and education reform to the overlap between Steve Jobs’ design philosophy and his own. We learned (among other things) why research and development in battery technology and artificial intelligence are critical to the future of household cleaning, and why it’s harder to sell high-end vacuum cleaners in China and Brazil.

Deep Web Research 2010

The Deep Web covers somewhere in the vicinity of 1 trillion pages of information located through the world wide web in various files and formats that the current search engines on the Internet either cannot find or have difficulty accessing. The current search engines find about 200 billion pages at the present time of this writing. In the last several years, some of the more comprehensive search engines have written algorithms to search the deeper portions of the world wide web by attempting to find files such as .pdf, .doc, .xls, ppt, .ps. and others.
