When 17-year-old George Hotz became the world’s first hacker to crack AT&T’s lock on the iPhone in 2007, the companies officially ignored him while scrambling to fix the bugs his work exposed. When he later reverse engineered the Playstation 3, Sony sued him and settled only after he agreed to never hack another Sony product.

When Hotz dismantled the defenses of Google’s Chrome operating system earlier this year, by contrast, the company paid him a $150,000 reward for helping fix the flaws he’d uncovered. Two months later Chris Evans, a Google security engineer, followed up by email with an offer: How would Hotz like to join an elite team of full-time hackers paid to hunt security vulnerabilities in every popular piece of software that touches the internet?

Today Google plans to publicly reveal that team, known as Project Zero, a group of top Google security researchers with the sole mission of tracking down and neutering the most insidious security flaws in the world’s software. Those secret hackable bugs, known in the security industry as “zero-day” vulnerabilities, are exploited by criminals, state-sponsored hackers and intelligence agencies in their spying operations. By tasking its researchers to drag them into the light, Google hopes to get those spy-friendly flaws fixed. And Project Zero’s hackers won’t be exposing bugs only in Google’s products. They’ll be given free rein to attack any software whose zero-days can be dug up and demonstrated with the aim of pressuring other companies to better protect Google’s users.

Parallella-16 Desktop Computer

This thing is a badass, it has your dual core ARM9 processor and a 16 core FPGA processor, turning it into one of the most efficient, powerful devices in the power/wattage ranks. It’s mostly a development board for now as people continue to explore the capabilities of it.

I may be contemplating selling my soul to get the Desktop version once they start shipping internationally.

"I care not for whoever lives or dies, Commissar. I only care for whoever kills. I offer no regard for gallantry, a heroic heart or any other such drivel - we leave such things to the space marines - No, you see my good man this is the Astra Militarum; this is where the Imperium’s lowest, weakest and most unfavourable are destined to end up. We shall not make heroes of these runts, naysayers and criminals, we shall make them into killers. The Emperor himself cares not for any abstract qualities that makes a man fire his weapon to kill. His only concern, and by inevitable extension our concern is that this man will do has he is ordered and kill on command. It does not matter who falls in battle insofar as to make sure that the fallen have first taken their enemy with them to death.

This is the Astra militarum, Commissar. A thousand deaths today equals naught for tomorrow and the final matter is that we train our men to kill - not to live, or die. But to kill.”

"Without Maslany’s ability to play five-plus different women, the Canadian/British sci-fi show would fall apart, becoming some sort of Sunday afternoon syndicated piece of generic trash rather than a show that’s worthy of obsession." - x

"On BBC America’s "Orphan Black," Tatiana Maslany plays a half-dozen different roles, all of them wonderfully." - x

"The outrage is just — Maslany’s chameleonlike talents have landed her the cover of Entertainment Weekly and earned her professional recognition elsewhere: two Critics Choice Awards and a Golden Globe nomination, to start."- x

THIS SHOW HAS EARNED ALL OF THE AWARDS YET NON OF THE NOMINATIONS.

Don’t ever make campaigns based on: “we’re holding charity to ransom unless you do stuff for us”, it’s disgusting and amounts to moral blackmail which isn’t a pretty way to advertise your company.
Thankfully, upon professing my outrage to them they responded and advised they would be dating 400k meals with OzHarvest (seemingly regardless of tweets), which makes this an exercise in looking like moral blackmail but really just being a badly designed attempt to boost their social profile.

i changed my okcupid profile to say “you should message me if you know any good jokes about giraffes” and someone responded “you, a baby, and a giraffe walked into a bar, and then you walked out with me! ;) ;)” and i’m so angry because that doesn’t even make sense, there is ZERO adherence to structural joke norms, why the fuck is the baby there? did we leave the baby at the bar? jesus christ, did we fucking leave the baby with the fucking giraffe, that is NOT RESPONSIBLE
