Critical TLS/SSL Flaw in Apple Operating Systems
A simple coding error; probably a cut-and-paste mistake. I would love to know what the root cause analysis of the mistake looked like inside Apple. Also, you have to assume that US, Chinese, and other intelligence agencies have automated attacks on every operating system release and knew about the mistake as soon as it got into the wild.
Mt. Gox Files U.S. Bankruptcy
Supposedly, Mt. Gox was run by a Magic the Gathering site, so now I'm surprised Mt. Gox held up this long.
John McAfee's Setup
Hilarious, especially some of the linked YouTube videos. As an aside, I like that usesthis.com has expanded to interview people who use technology to actually get something done besides write code, build web sites, etc. It helps to put the latest Web bubble in better perspective.
