Hacking suspect a ‘genius,’ but often in trouble

Already a rock-star to anarchists and cyber-terrorists worldwide, Hammond was one of five computer hackers charged Tuesday with crimes related to high-profile cyber attacks against major corporations and government entities. Court documents tie Hammond to “Anonymous,” a decentralized international collective of “hacktivists,” or people who use computer networks for political protests and other actions.

His mother, Rose Collins, offered a heavy sigh when informed that the FBI had arrested her 27-year-old son.

“Again?” she asked. “I love my son, but he is a genius with no brain. He has a 168 IQ, but he has no wisdom.”

A cheap and fully optical solution for ultra-fast internet

Supported by EUR 2.6 million in research funding from the European Commission, the project not only demonstrated connection speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps), around 2,000 times faster than most Internet users experience today, but the researchers showed that such speeds can be achieved at relatively little extra cost using existing fibre infrastructure and off-the-shelf components.

Hands-on with the iRobot Roomba 780: My belated first date with a floor-sweeping robot

The Roomba arrived in my two-bedroom, 800-square-foot Brooklyn apartment about two weeks ago, and I’ll tell you, this thing comes armed to the teeth with impressive sounding features.
We’re talking optical and acoustic sensors that literally look and listen for dirt and debris; ultra-fine filters that catch particles of dust less than a micron across; redesigned motors and cleaning heads that are less likely to get snarled with pet or human hair; and a roomier bin that collects more dirt, debris, and gunk than any previous Roomba.

Cel mai de succes SISTEM BANCAR din lume: cel creat de Mohamed

Un sistem bancar ferit de crize, creat la umbra Coranului

Sistemul bancar islamic se deosebește de sistemul bancar occidental prin faptul că debitorii sunt obligați să investească în firme cu acoperire în realitate, fiindu-le interzise speculațiile financiare. Orice capital varsat trebuie să aiba legatura cu bunuri reale. În acest fel băncile sunt ferite de așa-numitele “bule speculative”.

Unele sectoare ale economiei sunt exluse din activitatea băncilor musulmane. Ele nu creditează firme care produc sau distribuie alcool, produc, procesează sau vând carne de porc.

De asemenea, băncile islamice nu dau bani pentru investiții în industria pornografică sau de armanent doar pentru simplul fapt că sunt interzise de Coran. În principiu, băncilor musulmane le este interzis să dea bani pentru activitati care contravin interesului religios..
