Samsung Unveils Flexible OLED Concept Phone – Video

samsung flexible oled phone Samsung Unveils Flexible OLED Concept Phone   Video

It’s tough for a cellphone to be small enough to fit in your pocket and also big enough to pack a pretty display capable of doing everything you need done. Samsung is attempting to bridge this gap with a cellphone that features a foldable OLED display.

The company showed off the concept phone at the FPD International show in Yokohama. It opens like a book and reveals the flexible OLED, which clocks in at 2.5-inches. The company has offered no word as to when or if they’d put the phone into production. It seems like a great idea, though. Below is a video of the presentation:

Princeton press releases how-to guide for hacking Sequoia e-voting machines

sequoia advantage voting Princeton press releases how to guide for hacking Sequoia e voting machines

Ah, America. Mom. Apple pie. Baseball. Cheating? Maybe my grandfather was right when he said "Computers? Buncha mumbo jumbo." Diebold recently admitted their voter machines were about as easy to hack as an Apple 2e and now this.

Princeton researchers spent a lot of time with the Sequoia e-voting machine and things don’t look pretty for the future of America. They released a 158 page report detailing just how easy it is to hack into it. A researcher was able to bypass the security mechanisms in thirteen seconds. This, also, was with the device located inside of the standard-issue lockbox. Thirteen seconds.I yawn longer than that.

Also, once hacked, it’s easy to transfer malicious code to other units as they are all networked together. Well, look on the bright side. Now I’ll finally be able to get ALF elected to congress. I’ve been dreaming of that since elementary school. Ha! I kill me!

Here is a link to the report.

Google buys a fighter jet – really – no really

google jet Google buys a fighter jet   really   no really

In an ominous moment designed as a harbinger for the coming "search engine wars", Google has bought a fighter jet. NYTimes reports the company has acquired a Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet, a light attack and trainer jet used by air forces around the world. What, besides destroying the three remaining Altavista compounds, is Google going to be doing with this fighter jet?

Helping NASA conduct experiments of course! They already loan out some of their other planes to NASA on occasion, being as how they share an airstrip. The jet was acquired to carry scientific instruments that could not be rigged up to the Boeing 757/767s and Gulfstream jets the company already own. Word on the street, is the jet could be used to help with the day-to-day functionality of the ESA Jules Verne satellite. Aw, those Googlers. So sweet.

In related news, Jeeves of recently bought a Supersoaker 2000. Go get ’em Jeeves!
