this is an article about something that's been bothering me for awhile now, the general responsiveness of the devices we use. Sure, a computer is an excellent multitasker, but why oh why does my phone have such crappy responsiveness when being a phone is all it's designed to do? I don't want my input to be shown to be recognized half a second later, I want a keypress or stroke to be done in realtime as far as the phone's GUI is concerned.

I don't think people understand what it means to run a data center. sure, it must waste a lot of energy when the servers are not stressed to capacity, but it's very little $$ in the way of an insurance policy. Companies are willing to pay for that in order for their website to have as much uptime/scalability/reliability as possible.

http://www.techhive....of-gaming-.html
I admit that when I first started gaming I thought consoles were the way to go, but as I got into PC gaming I can honestly say that I was stupid. Technology comes out so quickly that we really can't expect 5-year-old hardware to support the latest and greatest games. Sure PC gaming is a lot more expensive hardware-wise but the modularity gives us freedom to customize, and sometimes you don't have to upgrade but just do a bit of overclocking.

MySQL isn't owned by Sun anymore, and Oracle hasn't made it clear whether or not MySQL will remain free. As such, Google decided to pull the plug sooner rather than later which is what I would do since changing things at your leisure is much less stressful than doing it because it's necessary.

On the other half of the MySQL coin, there's no certainty that it will become proprietary at all, and it's actually grown quite a bit under Oracle's development

Microsoft is providing security updates to WinXP for another year

Mozilla calls on the world to help protect its browser from the NSA. In the case that the NSA issues both a mandate that browsers insert a snooping backdoor and a gag order on said feature...the open source community can find it, correct it, and because of the licensing, release their own version without it being an official Mozilla product and thus not bound by the same rules.

'Honey encryption' is a new type of encription that is more difficult for hackers to work around, as the application will return data regardless of the credentials entered. The data will always look real, which makes it difficult for brute force attacks as the hacker will have to come up with some way to parse the data.
