  1. It wasn't necessarily clear from all the blogs, but the "Chrome" EULA being criticized is indeed the same terms and conditions as the normal EULA for Google Docs, etc.

    If the EULA for Chrome has been changed, as of this posting the EULA for Google docs et al. remain same as always:

    11. Content licence from you

    11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive licence to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. This licence is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to display, distribute and promote the Services and may be revoked for certain Services as defined in the Additional Terms of those Services.

    11.2 You agree that this licence includes a right for Google to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with whom Google has relationships for the provision of syndicated services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services.

  2. hmm let's see... why do kids want to be on myspace at school. well, school is boring, school is unpleasant, teachers are stupid, other kids are mean, myspace is more interesting than school, schools censoring myspace is a form of oppression just begging to be circumvented, it's fun to hack around roadblocks stupidly constructed by a mindless system, public education is a scam, humans are social beings and the internet is creating a wider pool of social opportunities...... I could go on and on and on. If I were in school I'd try to get on myspace too. It's a no-brainer.


  3. Doesn't windows come with DOS? What more from a shell would you want that DOS doesn't give you? :P

    But yeah, I've seen demos of cygwin and it seems like a lot of trouble for what ends up being a still fairly hacked-together approximation of *nix functionality. virtual box plus Linux would be so much more satisfying. I have also played around with some success with Qemu.



    For just getting a shell to play around with, try Slackware; it does not default into X so you can stay in the shell as much as you want.


  4. Not surprising; since the very beginning of the iPhone, Apple was acknowledging that their plan was basically security-by-lack-of-features. They should take back all the fancy features they've introduced since its inception and protect their customer base again. Come to think of it people can be easily give away important information via a simple phone call, so Apple may want to reconsider the iPhone's ability to make or receive phone calls.


  5. that i've seen, most people's passwords are short and often only a single word; it seems the idea of a passphrase is foreign to most users. this method of taking note of the rows of the keys being hit is great and would really narrow down the possibilities. i'll have to try it for kicks sometime. then again, a lot of the users i'm talking about here are probably so unaware of security that they would probably jsut give me their password if i were to ask nicely for it.....


  6. if you can't get broadband connection to download a linux distro, either:

    1. download a really small distro like slax (advanced users) or puppy (new users)


    2. go to a book store.

    a. locate either a book or a magazine on Linux that comes with a Linux disc in the back

    b. acquire book / magazine + disc

    c. install on computer


    3. go to an online ISO store and purchase a disc or flash drive with linux on it; they will ship it to you via postal service.

    hope that helps. I've done all three of those things and each one has resulted in good, clean linux fun,


  7. Are you literally asking how to recreate such a site with the same look and feel? Because if so, view the source code and see that they are using javascript along with a little inline css.

    If you are asking what app they used to create it, I would probably guess they hand-coded it. A really quick glance over the code doesn't give away any of the excess tags that Dreamweaver and similar apps tend to put in, there is no meta data identifying any particular app...probably someone sat down and coded it from scratch or from an inhouse template.

    But as someone else has said, it's not a terrible idea to simply email the webmaster or the company and ask your questions. It's not like site contains any deep dark secrets (or does it?) so they will probably answer any reasonable questions you have. Or they'll ignore you. But either way it doesn't hurt to ask.
