Microsoft giving Europeans with Windows XP and Vista choice of browser, too

July 29th, 2009


As it turns out, it won’t just be Windows 7 that’ll be giving Europeans a choice of what web browser to use. In fact, the lengths that Microsoft is going to appease the European Commission is quite extreme. Ars Technica did some digging and here’s the fine print of the proposal. Within three to six months of the EC’s approval, an update will be sent out to Europeans with Windows XP and Vista, labeled “high priority” or “important.” User who install the update and have Internet Explorer as the default browser will see the ballot screen on next log in, which will show up to ten different browsers with at least a 0.5 percent share of the market in the European Economic Area (EEA). Users can then choose to download something new, ignore the screen, or defer until an indefinite time in the future. Windows 7 users will get the ballot update within two weeks of the Commission’s decision or by its October 22nd launch, whichever comes second. Extreme? You betcha — but we can’t argue over having more choice.

Wenn ein junges Blog nach regenbogenfarbenen Zombies benannt sind, die Einhörner statt Hirne essen, und wenn dieses Blog dann noch Schönheiten wie obiges Strobo-Sexy-Morlock-GIF postet, dann muss ich das ja wohl mal verlinken. Geht ja gar nicht anders.

Hi ihr… Ich bin momentan endlich mal im Urlaub. Fernab von allem in totaler stille in einem kleinen Haus mitten in der Wildniss auf Rügen… Ich hatte zwar gedacht, das ich mittels GPRS Modem trotzdem ein paar Posts raushauen kann, aber mein Internet ist mit durchschnittlich 6 kb/s (max 15) einfach zu langsam… Ausserdem sollte ich die Zeit nutzen mal zumindest ein wenig “abzuschalten”.

Google announces Chrome OS, coming to netbooks second half of 2010

July 8th, 2009


We can’t believe it’s actually here, but after hearing whispers of a Google OS for what seems like ages now, the company’s now gone official with its plans. According to the official developer blog, it’ll be an open source, lightweight platform that can “power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems,” and will be capable of running on x86 (that includes Intel Atom) and ARM chips. Addressing potential overlap with Android-based netbooks, the official line is that “choice will drive innovation for the benefit of everyone, including Google” — a pretty wild statement to make, but hey, it’s still all Google. A large portion of its fresh out of beta Google Apps suite already supports an offline mode, so we guess the groundwork’s laid out. The company says it’s currently working with a number of OEM manufacturers and that it’ll initially appear on a number of netbooks coming to market sometime in the second half of 2010. Excited? We are.

Apple patching nasty iPhone SMS vulnerability

July 4th, 2009


Given the hype surrounding Apple’s iPhone, we’re actually surprised that we haven’t seen more holes to plug over the years. In fact, the last major iPhone exploit to take the world by storm happened right around this time two years ago, and now — thanks to OS X security expert Charlie Miller — we’re seeing yet another come to light. Over at the SyScan conference in Singapore, Mr. Miller disclosed a hole that would let attackers “run software code on the phone that is sent by SMS over a mobile operator’s network in order to monitor the location of the phone using GPS, turn on the phone’s microphone to eavesdrop on conversations, or make the phone join a distributed denial of service attack or a botnet.” Charlie’s planning to detail the vulnerability in full at the upcoming Black Hat conference, but Apple’s hoping to have it all patched up by the end of this month.

iPhone 3GS jailbreak released by GeoHot ahead of Dev Team

July 3rd, 2009

Be warned, this is beta stuff and we haven’t been able to test it ourselves. However, a number of breathless tipsers and commenters are reporting a successful jailbreak and unlock of their iPhone 3GS. The magic begins with a 3GS jailbreak released by GeoHot. See, George is fed up with the Dev-Team’s insistence on waiting until Apple releases iPhone OS version 3.1. As he puts it:

Normally I don’t make tools for the general public, and rather wait for the dev team to do it. But guys, whats up with waiting until 3.1? That isn’t how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn’t worth waiting because you might have the “last” hole in the iPhone. What last hole…this isn’t golf. I’ll find a new one next week.

Meeeeow. After performing the jailbreak, ultrasn0w should then take care of the unlock although we haven’t seen official comment on this by GeoHot or the Dev-Team yet. Good luck, backup, and kiss the children goodbye — it could be a long weekend if you brick your new iPhone. Now hit the read link if you must.
