    SternisheFan writes with this selection from a story at the Washington Post: Apple said Wednesday night that it is making it impossible for the company to turn over data from most iPhones or iPads to police — even when they have a search warrant — taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user data. The move, announced with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple's latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, amounts to an engineering solution to a legal dilemma: Rather than comply with binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that makes it almost impossible for the company – or anyone else but the device's owner – to gain access to the vast troves of user data typically stored on smartphones or tablet computers. The key is the encryption that Apple mobile devices automatically put in place when a user selects...

    snydeq writes The wheels of justice spin slowly, but they seem finally to be running software patents out of town, writes Simon Phipps in his analysis of how Alice Corp. v CLS Bank is becoming a landmark decision for patent cases in the U.S. 'In case after case, the Court of Appeals is using Alice to resolve patent appeals. In each case so far, the Court of Appeals has found the software patents in question to be invalid. ... As PatentlyO points out, the Alice effect is even reaching to lower courts, saving the Court of Appeals from having to strike down patent findings on appeal.' Although the patent industry broadly speaking sees the Alice verdict as a death knell for many existing patents, some expect Alice to turn software patents into 'draftsmen's art because as you and I have seen over the years, every time there's a court ruling it just means that you have to word the patent claims differently.' ...

    mikejuk writes with this excerpt: When Google Labs closed there was an outcry. How could an organization just pull the rug from under so many projects? At least Google announced what it was doing. Mozilla, it seems since there is no official record, just quietly tiptoes away — leaving the lights on since the Mozilla Labs Website is still accessible. It is accessible but when you start to explore the website you notice it is moribund with the last blog post being December 2013 with the penultimate one being September 2013. The fact that it is gone is confirmed by recent blog posts and by the redeployment of the people who used to run it. The projects that survived have been moved to their own websites. It isn't clear what has happened to the Hatchery -the incubator that invited new ideas from all and sundry. One of the big advantages of open source is the ease with which a project can be started. One of the big disadvantages of open source is the ease with which projects can be al...

    HughPickens.com writes The Interecept reports that contrary to lurid claims made by U.S. officials, a new independent analysis of Edward Snowden's revelations on NSA surveillance that examined the frequency of releases and updates of encryption software by jihadi groups has found no correlation in either measure to Snowden's leaks about the NSA's surveillance techniques. According to the report "well prior to Edward Snowden, online jihadists were already aware that law enforcement and intelligence agencies were attempting to monitor them (PDF)." In fact, concerns about terrorists' use of sophisticated encryption technology predates even 9/11. Earlier this month former NSA head Michael Hayden stated, "The changed communications practices and patterns of terrorist groups following the Snowden revelations have impacted our ability to track and monitor these groups", while Matthew Olsen of the National Counterterrorism Centre would add "Following the disclosure of the stolen NSA documents,...

    itwbennett writes The Senate Armed Service Committee released on Wednesday an unclassified version of a report (PDF) commissioned last year to investigate cyberattacks against contractors for the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM). The report alleges that the Chinese military successfully stole emails, documents, login credentials and more from contractors, but few of those incidents were ever reported to TRANSCOM. During a one-year period starting in June 2012, TRANSCOM contractors endured more than 50 intrusions, 20 of which were successful in planting malware. TRANSCOM learned of only two of the incidents. The FBI, however, was aware of 10 of the attacks. ...

    The Washington Post reports (building on a short AP report they're also carrying) that "[Australian] police have arrested 15 people allegedly linked to the Islamic State, some who plotted a public beheading." According to the Sydney Morning Herald, of the arrestees, only two have been charged. From the Washington Post story: “Police said the planned attack was to be “random.” The killers were to behead a victim and then drape the body in the black Islamic State flag, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. ... Direct exhortations were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in [the Islamic State] to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said at a press conference, as the BBC reported. “So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that’s why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.” ...

    KentuckyFC (1144503) writes A growing number of police forces around the world are using data on past crimes to predict the likelihood of crimes in the future. These predictions can be made more accurate by combining crime data with local demographic data about the local population. However, this data is time consuming and expensive to collect and so only updated rarely. Now a team of data experts have shown how combing crime data with data collected from mobile phones can make the prediction of future crimes even more accurate. The team used an anonymised dataset of O2 mobile phone users in the London metropolitan area during December 2012 and January 2013. They then used a small portion of the data to train a machine learning algorithm to find correlations between this and local crime statistics in the same period. Finally, they used the trained algorithm to predict future crime rates in the same areas. Without the mobile phone data, the predictions have an accuracy of 62 per cent. B...

    onproton (3434437) writes The journal Nature released a study today that reveals a link between the consumption of artificial sweeteners and the development of glucose intolerance [note: abstract online; paper itself is paywalled], a leading risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes, citing a critical alteration of intestinal bacteria. Paradoxically, these non-caloric sweeteners, which can be up to 20,000 times sweeter than natural sugars, are often recommended to diabetes patients to control blood glucose levels. Sugar substitutes have come under additional fire lately from studies showing that eating artificially sweetened foods can lead to greater overall calorie consumption and even weight gain. While some, especially food industry officials, remain highly skeptical of such studies, more research still needs to be done to determine the actual risks these substances may pose to health. ...

    An anonymous reader writes On Wednesday at a hearing in front of the US House Committee on Small Business, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler stated that for ISPs to be eligible for government broadband subsidies, they would have to deliver speeds of at least 10 Mbps. Said Wheeler: "What we are saying is we can't make the mistake of spending the people's money, which is what Universal Service is, to continue to subsidize something that's subpar." He further indicated that he would remedy the situation by the end of 2014. The broadband subsidies are collected through bill surcharges paid for by phone customers. ...

     Editor’s Note: Yesterday, we ran a story about a new startup called ManServants, which facilitates the rental of “hot men” for $125.

I am sure I received a very similar box to Fahey and when I cracked open all the figs I was really impressed. They certainly seem to be of similar quality to the original 1.0 figures I own and in some cases I…...

    Tycho: I knew that once The Tracksuit had weighed in on Destiny, the conversation would get interesting.  And it has. Much of Halo’s most savory material has been in the margins of the actual core products: books, hidden journals, and forums devoted to parsing it.  My favorite Halo story - that is to say, the best Halo story - was, technically speaking, an advertisement.  Even before the release of the original Halo, it had already passed into legend: angular, hostile communiques from some kind of Sentient established a frankly intoxicating set of parentheses around a game…...

    Tycho: Titanfall had “hype” behind it, but I don’t think it compares to the Destiny hype.  The pitch to Activision must have been blissfully short: “We will make you a Halo MMO.”  I try to imagine the acquisitions manager opening their briefcase so fast that papers fly everywhere, and they’re trying to read them in mid-air to find the right one, and they’re swiping at them like a cat in a kind of slow motion, billion-dollar snowglobe. The game must certainly sweep the Unlikely Helmet Awards.  Everybody’s face looks like the Jedi…...

    I know a lot of people have no faith in Capcom these days, but Deep Down looks interesting to me every time I see it. It doesn't look quite as good as a Souls game mechanically, but I'll take everything I can get in terms of action dungeon crawling. This new TGS 2014 trailer highlights some of the less seen aspects of the game, like the Assassin's Creed-esque "modern day virtual reality" gimmick. I just hope the free-to-play scheme doesn't ruin the game. ...

    In the course of covering videogames, sometimes you go into an appointment knowing exactly what's going to happen. You know precisely how the game will play and what the demo will be like -- everything's just crystal clear. That's how my first look at Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair on PS4 went. There sure are a lot of bugs, and oh boy, do you ever kill them. Dropped off in the middle of a giant city, I was given ten minutes to defend Earth with my forces. Equipped with a machine gun and a rocket launcher, I set off to blow as many giant ants into rust-colored oblivion as I possibly could. Real talk: If the game kept track of this sort of thing, I may have done more damage than good. But, we're here to fulfill our exterminator superhero fantasies, so let's not dwell on semantics. Anyone that's familiar with the franchise won't be surprised to find out that The Shadow of New Despair isn't going to push the PS4 to it...

    It's become exceedingly easy in recent years to point the finger at any four player cooperative game in Japan and call it a Monster Hunter clone. I'm not particularly fond of this way of thinking. Despite my love of Monster Hunter (200+ hours in MH4), I think many of the various hunting action games have unique, interesting qualities that separate them from one another. Perhaps that's why I had been so jazzed to check out Final Fantasy Explorers, Square Enix's first attempt to dabble in the hunting action genre. With a stable of classic monsters, jobs, and giant bosses in its long history, Final Fantasy seems like the perfect franchise to get a spinoff in the genre. ...

    Back in the day when I first played Final Fantasy VIII, I fantasized about a world in which people could walk up to random strangers, ask to play a card game, and be treated to one without it being weird. We are not there yet, but the makers of Eminence: Xander's Tales apparently have had similar thoughts. Eminence is planned as a massively multiplayer online trading card game, and one of the most interesting bits planned is the ability banned on most schoolyards: winner takes one of the loser's cards. This can be toggled between battles for those afraid of losing prized digital possessions, but I hope most player-vs-player battles are played for keeps. I am a bit torn on how to feel about this. On the one hand, it seems a little iffy that the card gameplay is pretty much just a straight rip from FFVIII's Triple Triad subgame...

    I'd never played Bladestorm, the historical action/strategy title that seems to be a bit of a cult classic within the Dynasty Warriors type. It's still a bit odd that Koei Tecmo is reviving the 2007 PS3 and 360 game and that the HD update is also coming to the PS3 along with the PS4 and Xbox One. The TGS showing was sparse. Only the PS4 and Xbox One versions were being demoed, but the two Xbox One stations seemed to have cheaper (not by too much) TVs than the two PS4 stations (also my Xbox One character froze towards the end of the level). It also failed to shed light on the revealed full name, Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War & Nightmare. The "Nightmare" bit is meant to refer to a new separate section of the game that eschews faux historical dealings for a fantasy world of goblins and the like. ...

    PSBlog : "The Tomorrow Children is an online game, combining synchronous and asynchronous gameplay. This is to encourage a fresh style of play. If you just want to explore by yourself you can and other players cant see you. But if you want to interact with other players, your actions in the world will begin to pop up in their worlds. The world itself is synchronized too, so your interactions appear in both your own world and theirs. For example: if you dig a hole, that hole will be dug in the same place for other players in their world. Its pretty interesting to see people working together within this system, digging out to find resources and using them to build up their towns together. People have asked what kind of roles players can assume in the game. The Tomorrow Children is a sandbox but there are some loosely defined roles you can take on such as Radio Officer which is a kind of scout role, and Engineer Commander who likes explosives and building roads, but you can mix a......

The customization, especially for a game that gets thrown around with the term MMO quite often, is quite negligible."...

    Are video games sexist? Are video games rife with sexism? And have you heard that most video gamers are now adult women—not teenage boys in the basement? A new study says so. Feminist tech writers have seized on the study as proof that the video industry has fallen behind the times: too many games, they say, perpetuate a culture of sexism and misogyny.

    In this tutorial we will discuss about the java.io.tmpdir system property. The java.io.tmpdir system property indicates the temporary directory used by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to create and store temporary files. The default value is typically "/tmp", or "/var/tmp" on Unix-like platforms. On Microsoft Windows systems the java.io.tmpdir property is typically "C:\\WINNT\\TEMP"....

    I'm trying to make a game with jquery where bullets are appended using a function. So far bullets are generating whenever I press spacebar but I want to generate bullets like 3-5 stacks. 3-5 bullets will be generated and then a short break then again 3-5 bullets will be generated and the process continues. Bullets are appended as div element. Here are the codes, function generateBullet() { var Player = $('#player'); var PlayerLeft = Player.offset().left; var PlayerTop = Player.offset().top - 50; var appendingValue = "<div class='bulletID' style=' position: absolute; left: 250px; top: 250px;'></div>"; var appendSize = $('.bulletID').size(); if (appendSize >= 3) { $('#content').delay(5000).append(appendingValue); } else { $('#content').append(appendingValue); } } function animateBullet() { var bulletID = $('.bulletID'); bulletID.each(function () { var nowTop = $(this).offset().top; $(this).css("top", nowTop - 25); }); } v...

    I am stepping through a Python package's code to attempt to understand what it is doing so that I can modify it, but I'm getting confused on one step. The code has the line: get_key = lambda r: (r.CHROM, r.POS) which is used to order a list based on r.CHROM and r.POS (I think at least thats what it's doing). Given my particular case, r.CHROM is a str data type which can be any numeric values from 1-22, as well as alpha characters, X, Y, and MT in that order of sorting priority. The issue is when this lambda function is used to sort, it sorts on alphanumeric and comes out in the order 1,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,2,20,21,22, ... which is obviously incorrect from what I want. Is it possible to modify this lambda function to provide a custom comparison priority or hierarchy, so that my resulting list comes ou...

    I am working on an eight queens/ chess board problem in my class. For my code, i am using a one dimensional array i.e q[c](c is the column) to store the value of the row which consists of a queen. for example, q[1]=3 means that in column 2 (0 based array), there is a queen in row 4. The original problem used a 2d array, so b[r][c] would either = 0, or 1, 1 being a queen, 0 being the rest. The program used an ok function to test each queen it was placing against all previously placed queens, and at the end, printed the result. The print function was for(int j=0; j<c;j++) cout<<endl; for(int i=0; i<c;i++) cout<< b[i][j]; which printed 92 solution boards that looked something like this 10000000 00001000 01000000 00010000 00000010 00100000 00000100 00000001 Now for my issue: I can NOT for the life of me figure out how to get the aforementioned 1d array b[c] to print a board which l...

What we can see here is a working connection from Java to a SQLServer DB. My question is when I generate the .war, if I want to quickly change to another DB...I basically can't! (not without having to change these lines to the respective DB and generate a whole new .war).

    The limitation of 3D Printer build volume is over. The folks over at NEXT and LIFE Labs have created a prototype robot with a 3D print head attached to it. Unlike a traditional 3D Printer that moves the print head around within the confines of a machine, the 3&DBot drives the print head around any flat surface, extruding as it goes. Although the 3&DBot has 4 wheels, they are all stationary and face independent directions. Normally, this arrangement would only allow a vehicle to rotate in a circle. However, the wheels used here are not conventional, they are Mecanum-style with … ...

    [Dave] wanted to make an Arduino robot out of a remote-control 1950 Mercury. He removed the RC portion from the car and kept the drive and steering motors. The idea was to use three ultrasonic rangefinders in the grille real estate and move the car forward based on the longest distance detected. He initially used a Seeed motor controller and some Grove cables soldered to his sensors to power the steering. It went forward, but only forward, and [Dave] decided the motor controller and the car’s steering motor weren’t playing well together. [Dave] had the idea to use relays … ...

It might only be a display to show the current weather conditions, but it’s a start, and only a hint of what this module can do.
