/. and the reg

  • Slashdot | Ten Security Bulletins From Microsoft. Patch time.
  • Slashdot | Political Cybersquatting Or Free Speech? Ultimately people will always be able to come up with some domain name that could possibly be associated with you/your organisation. The most workable solution IMO is to get one good domain and promote that as your official domain. If you're worried - and you have the budget - snag anything which is so close to that one good domain as to be indistinguishable from it. ie.,, and NOT Then, take into account that politics is an extremely dirty game - so pollies should expect this and counter it if they think it's a problem.
  • Slashdot | Sony Launches DVD-Burning Appliance. No doubt the adverts will have miniscule text at the bottom saying "stealing movies robs actors". Sony is ethically pretty dodgy on this - Sony sells albums/movies/etc, sells blank media, sells recording devices... then turns around and claims it is losing money when people combine the three products. Of course, it's not just Sony. But I notice it since I'm a consumer slut for Sony gear (if I was rich it'd be Bose).
  • Was Bush packing Wi-Fi in TV debate? | The Register . Includes a suggestion on how to catch him out if he tried it at the final debate, assuming he did, which seems pretty likely to me :)
