OV chipkaart hacked, software available

This forum has links to the sites which explain the hack and to the software itself, for as long as it’s up. The hack comes down to filling up your anonymous chipcard once, then making a copy and restoring the copy every now and again. This is undetectable, especially during the week. Weekends are apparently […]

Facebook ads use your face for free

Facebook introduced a handful of new ad units that combine your “Likes,” Facebook Places check ins, and your use of certain apps with advertisements for things like Starbucks, Coke, Levi’s jeans and Budweiser. In other words, if you happen to click “Like” on the Starbucks page, check into your local faux Italian coffee bar, or […]

Theme it – find themes for your jailbroken iphone easily

So far this looks like a great app – faster and easier to navigate than Cydia, it’s a shame that Saurik / Jay Freeman is showing exactly the Apple Monopolist Spirit that the jailbreaking community IMHO is trying to get rid of by forcing this package off the official repositories and by even going so […]

Tunisia was busy stealing the whole country’s passwords over Christmas

It turns out that every Tunisian ISP was keylogging all login attempts to facebook and other sites from Christmas. The Inside Story of How Facebook Responded to Tunisian Hacks – Alexis Madrigal – Technology – The Atlantic.

Ultrafast quantum computer closer: Ten billion bits of entanglement achieved in silicon

Scientists from Oxford University have made a significant step towards an ultrafast quantum computer by successfully generating 10 billion bits of quantum entanglement in silicon for the first time — entanglement is the key ingredient that promises to make quantum computers far more powerful than conventional computing devices. via Ultrafast quantum computer closer: Ten billion […]

SMB Traffic Analyzer

SMB Traffic Analyzer (SMBTA in the following) is a software package to monitor and create statistics about the data flow on one or more Samba servers. Statistical data can be automatically created for users, Samba services, as well as complete domains. In difference to typical network scanners, SMBTA does not listen on the network card […]

Palestine papers – Israel / Palestinian negotiation papers leaked

Like wikileaks for the Middle East, it shows concessions made by the Palestinians weren’t good enough for Israel and the US was running around showboating, not doing much constructive. The story behind the Palestine papers | World news | The Guardian.

EU Emissions Trading System down after hack siphons off $38 million from Czech traders

The European Commission (EC) suspended trading in carbon credits on Wednseday after unknown hackers compromised the accounts of Czech traders and siphoned off around $38 million, according to published reports. EU countries including Estonia, Austria, The Czech Republic, Poland and France began closing their carbon trading registries yesterday after learning that carbon allowances had been […]

Jawbone Era – with 10mm HD speaker, uUSB charger and accellerometer

My current jawbone has a worse speaker than the Jabra and the earpiece holder doesn’t work so well for me. Now they have a new system to hold it in your ear which hopefully works better, but they’ve addressed all the other niggles I had AND added an accellerometer! oh, and you can see the […]

ICSI Netalyzr analyses your network performance from local AND remote

This runs as a java applet on your side and also analyses traffic on the university of Berkely servers, giving you a good view of connection problems from both inside and outside of your network. It takes a few minutes to run though. ICSI Netalyzr.

Time travel using entanglement

Recently, it has been shown that the massless quantum vacuum state contains entanglement between timelike separated regions of spacetime, in addition to the entanglement between the spacelike separated regions usually considered. Here, we show that timelike entanglement can be extracted from the Minkowski vacuum and converted into ordinary entanglement between two inertial, two-state detectors at […]

DNA Teleports into water

Oddly enough, if you have a 7Hz wave and 2 testtubes, one filled with twater and one with bacterial DNA, after 18 hours you will find the DNA teleported to the water! The best thing about this quantum entanglement is that the effect lasts for a very very long time, it’s not transient. 1012.5166v1.pdf application/pdf […]

How often should you mail your email list? Often!

Allthough you lose quite a few subscribers, you keep the subscribers who are interested in your messages and you increase conversions. You won’t be put on a spamlist (if you mail a subscribed list with an option to unsubscribe). It also outperforms using social media. Extreme Email Experiment: How Much Is Too Much?.

Antimatter created by Thunderstorms

Scientists using NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have detected beams of antimatter produced above thunderstorms on Earth, a phenomenon never seen before. Scientists think the antimatter particles were formed in a terrestrial gamma-ray flash TGF, a brief burst produced inside thunderstorms and shown to be associated with lightning. It is estimated that about 500 TGFs […]

Dutch .gov wants to store all the car trips you’ve made

The Dutch have a system on roads that read number plates automatically for speeding purposes. Now – surprise surprise – they want to store not only the number plate information, but also the pictoral information (including the driver’s face) for a period of four weeks. I’m sure they’ll be trotting out the paedofile capturing arguments […]

iPhone Explorer – A USB iPhone browser for Mac and PC

turns your iphone into a disk and lets you copy files to and from it. It’s different from iphone folders in that it should work under 64 bit windows and it’s different from iphone disk in that it’s free. iPhone Explorer – A USB iPhone browser for Mac and PC.

US Navy officially pussified, humorless PC morons. USS Enterprise XO fortunately not.

The XO of the Enterprise used to hold movie nights featuring funny, sexually tinted skits. One or two people got upset, it got out and now the USN top is going nuts in a frantic attempt to show how humorless they are. Enterprise Skipper Condemned, Defended.

Hungary goes dictatorship – crazy media law requires “balance” (whatever that is) or huge fines

Under the new law, a government-appointed media council will have the power to decide whether a publication has broken rules on what it calls balanced and ‘moral’ reporting, and can issue heavy fines. Print and Internet media can face fines of more than $100,000 and broadcasters nearly $1 million, if, for example, their coverage is […]
