Excerpt: "Warning: (1) This Device May Not Cause Harmful Interference" Except for that ridiculously sloppy (and funny!) typo, and the missing Apple glyph, the counterfeit my father received from eBay is really authentic-looking. The counterfeiters … 1. Deceptively make the power supply look like the original (minus the Apple logo). 2. Use the same model number (A1172) to further mislead and allow sellers to mislead consumers. 3. Even more frighteningly, it does not put out the proper voltage according to my trusty multi-meter — at least not the same voltage as the OEM Apple part! Other differences include the fact that it's slightly thicker, the circular ring…

Excerpt: Sure, it might get you the wrong type of attention, or people might suspect you wear a tin foil hat to receive better reception, but this is one of the most artful pieces of link bait I've seen: "The 'socialist' label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots." "J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality." Come on, now? That's a bit of…

Bradley Spencer is holding a contest where the best analogy wins a free copy of my book. I smell some link bait. Well, at least it worked on me :)

Excerpt: Everyone is selling SSL certificates. Really? Not really. It turns out that the majority of quality SSL certificates are actually dispensed from the same company in some shape or form — VeriSign. VeriSign currently owns at least Thawte, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL. In other words, they own all but one of the "older-than-dirt" high-ubiquity certificate authorities, GlobalSign. Here's the lowdown: Verisign proper has the oldest root certificate, created in January 1996. It is the most ubiquitous, meaning, more browsers accept certificates granted by them than any others. They're unfortunately also ridiculously expensive. Thawte has the 2nd oldest…

Excerpt: The average IQ of the internet pedophile is apparently much higher than the aggregate of IQs at MySpace. Let me make a prediction: MySpace will be found liable for several incidents of child exploitation going forward — even more so than before. Wired's blog made it public over here. I was blissfully unaware of this until now (not being a pedophile and all…), but I could always tell that MySpace was a poorly conceived application. The idea was good, but that is where it ended. The problem is that MySpace was started (and hence programmed) by a team that never knew…

Excerpt: Authored By: Cristian Darie http://www.cristiandarie.ro/books. I'm writing this article to warn you about an implementation detail of the ASP.NET 2.0 session management mechanism, which, if handled incorrectly, can potentially remove your ASP.NET 2.0 web site from Google's index. The Background The communication protocol our web browsers use when navigating the Internet - HTTP - was designed to be stateless protocol. Unless special tracking-techniques are used, a web server that serves many requests at the same time cannot know if those requests come from different users, or from a single user performing multiple requests. Using an IP address to is particularly useless when NAT-based…
