    [ OAuth allows us to log into many sites using familiar credentials, from Twitter, Facebook, Google or Microsoft. The main author of the original OAuth 1.0 spec says these giants took it and made OAuth 2.0 a monstrous, complex, and insecure mess that has already brought us significant vulnerabilities] Egor Homakov hacked Facebook the other day, and while that's interesting all on its own, it's much more interesting as the advance guard of what will surely be a busy season of attacks against sites authenticating with OAuth 2.0. The hack, which also employs a Chrome bug, allows Homakov to obtain...

    The industry that Apple operates in is notoriously fickle, cutthroat, cruel and unforgiving. The product cycle for Apple's most important product lines - iPhone and iPad -is alarmingly short. In three years or less, the mobile phones and tablet computers that Apple produces today will be obsolete in the marketplace. Furthermore, the competitive landscape will be different three years from now. There will be entirely new products replacing the old ones that are currently in the marketplace, and there will be new companies competing to provide those products with the best possible quality and at the lowest possible price. Absolutely...

  • Amazing Doc Severinsen tracks

    Some remarkable music from Doc Severinsen and most of the members of the old Tonight Show. These guys are the creme-de-la-creme of the LA session community in the late '60s. At the time this album was made, the Beatles were still together. You can hear their influence, as well as that of Blood Sweat and Tears in this music. When my high school band teacher heard this, his comment was "they probably did one run-through before they recorded that." Enjoy.

    Explanation: Sometimes the Moon is a busy direction. Last week, for example, our very Moon passed in front of the planet Jupiter. While capturing this unusual spectacle from New South Wales, Australia, a quick-thinking astrophotographer realized that a nearby plane might itself pass in front of the Moon, and so quickly reset his camera to take a continuous series of short duration shots. As hoped, for a brief instant, that airplane, the Moon, and Jupiter were all visible in a single exposure, which is shown above. But the project was not complete -- a longer exposure was then taken to...

    Why Was Michelle Obama At The Oscars? Posted by Jennifer Rubin It was the average too-long, unfunny, over-produced Academy Awards TV show and then, after suffering through the 10-hour (well, it seemed like it) show, there was the first lady. In a ball gown. With military service personnel in dress uniform behind her. Michelle Obama, with service members behind her, announcing the winner of the Best Picture Academy Award (Mario Anzuoni / Reuters) She declared of the Best Picture nominees, They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find...

    O'Brien Mitsubishi, based in Normal, IL, is offering something way outside the norm: an absurdly low lease price the cheapest we've ever seen for on an electric vehicle. AutoblogGreen reader Josh K. could hardly believe what he saw when driving by a rotating banner advertising the a Mitsubishi i-MiEV recently: $69 a month for 24 months. That compares with the official Mitsubishi lease program from last fall, which was $249 a month for three years. Yes, it sounds too good to be true. So we called the dealership and had the lease offering confirmed. Salesman Scott Lovett explained...

    A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a high school teacher reportedly invited her female students to dress in burqas and refer to Muslim terrorists as freedom fighters. State Sen. Dan Patrick told Fox News he is very disturbed by a Facebook photograph posted by one of the students in a world geography class at Lumberton High School, which showed them in Islamic garb. He also is investigating reports that the students were forced to write an essay based on an article in The Washington Post that blamed Egypts turmoil on democracy rather than the Muslim Brotherhood. Parents are...

    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The plural of anecdote is statistics. There are lies, damned lies and statistics. So take what I am about to say for whatever it is worth. Maybe nothing. I own some Tesla (TSLA) stock, after all, just so I can go to the annual shareholder meeting, get a free coffee and be my usual pest. You could argue that what I am about to present is the equivalent of saying, "I've never seen a non-Apple (AAPL) tablet out in the wild, so therefore..." -- and you would be right. But people are still justifying this kind...

    The first clue is a sign "Fresh Eggs for Sale" in front of the school. There is a sheep pen on the baseball field and the sounds of farm animals greet pupils every morning. This is not your ordinary elementary school. It is the Walton Rural Life Center, a kindergarten-through-fourth grade charter school in rural Kansas that uses agriculture to teach students about math, science, economics - and responsibility. The farm theme is so popular that the center has a waiting list to enroll and has given the town of Walton, population 235, a boost, said Mayor Evan Johnson. "It's...

    When man falls on hard times, what's his best friend to do? A new donation-based program called Pet Food Stamps aims to provide food stamps for pets of low-income families and for food stamp recipients who otherwise could not afford to feed their pets, reported ABC affiliate KVIA in Las Cruces, N.M. Based in New York, the program is open to anyone in the United States. More than 45,000 pets have already been signed up in the past two weeks, according to the program's founder and executive director Marc Okon. Once need and income is verified, the families will receive...

    "'Grieved' that U.S. now approaching 'zero influence'"Jimmy Carter knows who to blame for the worlds troubles: the United States. Speaking Sunday in San Francisco, the former president told the Commonwealth Club,Our country is now looked upon as the foremost war-like nation on earth, and there is almost a complete dearth now of commitment of America to negotiate differences with others. Its just the latest slam on the U.S. Hes also blasted staunch allies Britain and Israel, while offering words of support for America-haters Iran, Hamas, Saddam Hussein and North Korea. This time, Carter even scorched the Obama administration for its...

    Is this what Michelle Obama looks like untethered to the pressure of a campaign? Is she free to follow her whims without worries about political backlash? The first lady became the buzz of the weekend when she beamed into the Academy Awards from the White House to present the award for best picture with Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson. Attendees and viewers were flabbergasted at the satellite image of the elegantly dressed Obama, flanked by young service members in full regalia, opening the envelope to name Ben Afflecks Argo the winner. It just seem[ed] so natural because the whole thing is...

Lauderdale. In the class were eighteen people (including three MD's) learning how to suture wounds using stitch and staples; nine folks were in the back of the room, schmoozing...
  • To solve our debt problems, lets sell Alaska

    To solve our debt problems, lets sell Alaska Treadwell makes a strong case for a home-grown offer. He notes that of Alaskas 365 million acres, the state government already owns 103 million, which were deeded at the time of statehood. An additional 44 million acres came with the Alaska Native Claims Act. U.S. cash in our till would barely cover a week of federal deficits, but we believe the potential here is worth trillions, especially if we gained freedom to drill it, Treadwell said. Location, location, location.
