Scientist says he’s first human with a computer virus - Blogs - Yahoo! Canada Tech

"Scientist says he’s first human with a computer virus"
By Christopher Null

Let the hysteria begin: Computer viruses have apparently made the leap from PC to person, BBC News reports.

Mind you, this was all intentional. British scientist Mark Gasson of the University of Reading introduced a computer virus into an RFID chip (similar to the chips implanted in pets to identify them if they go missing) and then implanted the infected chip into his own hand.

In its uninfected state, Gasson's chip lets him pass through secured doorways and turn on his cell phone, so it has practical real-world capabilities.

An infected chip could pass malicious code on to chip scanners as, say, the bearer passes through a security door. The virus could then spread to other systems in the network, depending on the complexity and cleverness of its programming.

Right now this is just a proof of concept, but it’s a sobering one in a world where 'touchless' networking systems like RFID are becoming more and more commonplace, while the security of these systems has been largely ignored.

Recently issued passports, which include an RFID chip now by default, have already been subject to extensive hacking attempts — and numerous hacking successes. Some people even suggest whacking your passport with a hammer to disable the RFID chip inside. (We don't endorse this, however.)

What happens when you have an actual RFID implant? BBC News notes that these chips are becoming popular receptacles for medical information, so if a person is unconscious, medical responders can still determine if someone has a critical allergy or a rare condition that a hospital might need to be aware of. What happens if a virus scrambles or even reverses this information?

The issue of viruses moving from computer to human may not be the nightmare that Hollywood makes it out to be — but the threat is becoming more real than we might like to believe.

Adobe Community Help and Google Site Search: Making search come alive in CS5

Friday, April 30, 2010 at 12:03 PM

Editor’s note: Today’s guest blogger is Mark Nichoson, Product Manager at Adobe Community Help.2


Back in 2008, Adobe began to use the power of Google Site Search to “plug the whole community brain trust right into the Creative Suite,” as we liked to say.

Now with the launch of Adobe® Creative Suite 5, we’ve taken that brain trust to a whole new level with the introduction of our new Community Help application. It’s an Adobe AIR®-based companion that’s automatically installed as part of any new Adobe CS5 product.

Launched directly from the Help menu of any CS5 product, the Community Help application enables customers to:
  • find fast answers with powerful new search options that let them focus results to just Adobe content, community content, developer resources, or even code samples
  • download core Adobe Help and language reference content for offline viewing (thanks to the Adobe AIR runtime)
  • see what the community thinks is the best, most valuable content via ratings and comments
  • share their expertise with others and find out what experts have to say about using their favorite Adobe product
Google Site Search: integration and innovation
Under the hood of the Community Help app lies our Google Site Search engine. This search engine searches across about 3000 sites – content such as product Help, language references, Tech Notes, Developer Connection articles, and Adobe TV videos as well as the best online content from the Adobe community. Content is chosen by experts at Adobe and in the design and developer communities, meaning customers find the answers they need faster.

Thanks to the robust Google Site Search APIs, the development team was not only able to easily integrate search results but also create unique innovations such as our new Code Search functionality. Formerly known as Blueprint, this new search option allows Adobe Flash® and Flex developers to search for relevant code samples so that they can write better code, faster.

A new definition of Help
By combining the best community content with the definitive reference that customers traditionally expect from Adobe, Community Help allows us to expand the definition what help means. Now users can tap into an entire ecosystem of content — one that can dynamically adjust to changing user needs and provide a much richer set of resources over the lifetime of the product.

Community Help can also be used as a standalone application. To give it a try, you can download it from adobe.com.

Top Money-Making Website: Craiglist (Rocker's World - The Zone 21)

Top Money-Making Website: Craiglist (Rocker's World - The Zone 21)
Craiglist Top money-making website Craiglist made profits for years now, considering a large increasing part of this particular giant’s revenues is are from sex ads, this is what fresh estimations tell. Specially focusing on prostitution, that is well know to be a very illegal thing in the United States.


Profits are estimated to rise by 22 percent this year, all from sex ads, according to the Advanced Interactive Media Group, which is monitoring the classifieds site already 7 years ago. It furnished estimates of sex-ad revenue, which it based on the number of ads counted on Craigslist during the month of February multiplied by the $10 fee for such ads. Usually does not charge anything, but the site takes in money for sex ads,not to forget certain real estate and job ads.

Not responding to any qustions about this increase in sex-ad revenues. The company which is based in San Francisco which remains to be private, does not disclose its revenues, which AIM Group estimated were $100 million last year based on counting the number of advertisements on sites.
Currently one-third of Craiglist’s expected $122 million in revenues, or more than $36 million, are foreseen to be mainly from sex ads.Because of this the company is seriously questioned.

Ashley Graham vs. ABC – Big Busted Model Banned! (Rocker's World - The Zone 21)

email post
Ashley Graham vs. ABC – Big Busted Model Banned! (Rocker's World - The Zone 21) Ashley Graham vs. ABC – Big Busted Model Banned! By AAyles on April 23rd, 2010 AShley GrahamAshley Graham is not impressed with the way she was treated by ABC – and we don’t blame her. The big-busted model was set to appear in an ad for Lane Bryant but was axed when ABC deemed the commercial too hot for TV. The ad was scheduled to appear during commercial breaks for the hit show Dancing with the Stars, a show known for scantily-clad women who wear next-to-nothing and shake their assets on the dance floor every week. Need we also remind you that Dancing with the Stars is aired live, where the provocatively dressed stars are often victim to wardrobe malfunctions (much like Chelsea’s this week). Your tatas falling out of your dress on live TV seems a little hotter than a previously recorded ad with a woman wearing a well-secured bra, don’t you think? Ashley was insulted and offended after ABC made its decision releasing this statement shortly after: “I was very surprised. The first thing I thought of was Victoria’s Secret commercials, and how they’re just as racy, if not more racy, than Lane Bryant.” ABC fired back with this statement of their own: “Their statements are not true,” said ABC Vice President Julie Hoover. “We were willing to accommodate them, but they chose to seek publicity.” While ABC never backed down on their decision, Lane Bryant and Fox struck a deal and the commercial was aired during American Idol. You can check out the commercial below: Do you think Ashley Graham was treated unfairly? Was the commercial really too hot for TV? Photo via NY Post
