    An anonymous reader writes: Just days before voting to repeal net neutrality regulations, FCC chairman Ajit Pai introduced a comedy video at the annual gathering of the Federal Communications Bar Association -- and it offered its own self-disparaging version of Pai's tenure as a Verizon attorney in 2003. "We want to brainwash and groom a Verizon puppet to install as FCC chairman," says a real-world Verizon executive appearing in the videotaped skit. "That sounds awesome," Pai responds. And the day of the vote Pai also appeared in another trying-to-be-funny video on the conservative site The Daily Caller demonstrating "seven things you can still do on the internet after net neutrality." In the first image he's holding a fidget spinner and dressed as Santa Claus, and the unmistakably patronizing video reminds critics that they can still upload photos of their meals to Instagram and "post photos of cute animals, like puppies." He also demonstrated that net neutrality critics can still s...

    Long-time Slashdot reader iamacat writes: Not a day goes by without a story about another Intel Management Engine vulnerability. What I get is that a lot of consumer PCs can access network and run x86 code on top of UNIX-like OS such as Minix even when powered off. This sounds pretty useful for tasks such as running an occasional use Plex server. Like I can have a box that draws very little power when idle. But when an incoming connection is detected, it can power itself and the media drive on and serve the requested content. The original submission ends with an interesting question. "if Intel ME is so insecure, how do I exploit it for practically useful purposes?" ...

    Long-time Slashdot reader theodp writes: This holiday season, many Slashdot readers are likely to find gifts under the tree because of Bill Gates' book picks. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it seems that turnabout is fair play -- what book recommendations do you have for Bill? At the top of my pick list for personalized learning advocate Gates would be Brian Dear's remarkable The Friendly Orange Glow: The Untold Story of the PLATO System and the Dawn of Cyberculture, with its tale of how a group of visionary engineers and designers -- some of them only high school students -- created a shockingly little-known computer system called PLATO in the late 1960s and 1970s that was decades ahead of its time in experimenting with how people could learn, engage, communicate, and play through connected terminals and computers.

    An anonymous reader quotes CNN: A power outage at the world's busiest airport left thousands of passengers stranded in dark terminals and in planes sitting on the tarmac, amid a nationwide ground stop. Incoming and outgoing flights at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were halted indefinitely as crews worked to restore power, leading to hundreds of flight delays and cancellations. Atlanta is the heart of the US air transport system, and what happens there has the potential to ripple through the country. More than 600 flights to and from Atlanta have been canceled, including 350 departures, according to Flightradar24... Flights headed to Atlanta are being held on the ground at their departure airport. Inbound flights to Atlanta are being diverted, US Customs and Border Protection said. Departures from the airport are delayed because electronic equipment is not working in the terminals, the FAA said. The cause of the incident is under investigation. Some people strande...

    "Google's annual list of the most popular searches is here, offering a peek into what people are really thinking about," writes CNN. An anonymous reader quotes their report: This year, you wanted to know more about one of the most powerful storms on record, the devastating Hurricane Irma. But you were also curious about [hip hop artist] Cardi B. and Unicorn Frappuccinos... Like 2017 itself, this year's top searches skew a little darker than usual, but are punctuated with some whimsy and positive moments. The top trending searches in the U.S. were Irma, Matt Lauer, Tom Petty, the Super Bowl and the Las Vegas shooting. To determine the most popular trending searches, Google looked at its trillions of queries, filtered out spam and repeats, and identified searches that had the highest uptick in traffic compared with the previous year. It breaks them into categories like news, memes, and recipes (beef stroganoff was a hit). Surprisingly there were more searches for 'iPhone 8" than for '...

    The San Francisco Bay Area has more car thefts than any region in America, according to SFGate.com. A National Insurance Crime Bureau report found that between 2012 and 2014, there were an average of 30,000 car thefts a year just in the cities of San Francisco, Oakland and Hayward. But one theft took a strange turn. An anonymous reader quotes their report: Cierra and Josh Barton purchased a new Honda HR-V at the beginning of summer. It was stolen while parked in front of their Livermore apartment complex at the end of August. Four months later, Hayward police called the Bartons to say they had recovered the vehicle... What they found, to their surprise, was a car in relatively good shape -- a few dents, a rattling hood. But in the back and front windows were Lyft stickers, Cierra Barton said. The odometer had spiked from 2,000 miles to more than 13,000. And in the back seat, Cierra said she found a pillow, a jacket and a stuffed animal. "It wasn't burned out, it wasn't gutted, but it a...

    An anonymous reader writes: Recently Gizmodo hailed "the best show ever made about Silicon Valley", asking its readers one question: why didn't you watch it? They're talking about AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, which their Senior Reviews Editor says "discovered the fascinating, frustrating human side to the soulless monsters who built Silicon Valley." Unfortunately, "nobody watched it. The show never cracked a million live viewers after the pilot episode. It sat firmly on the bubble every season, getting greenlit only by the grace of AMC." Today Netflix is making that show's fourth (and final) season available -- but is it the best show about working in tech?

    Remember that former Facebook exec who felt "tremendous guilt" about creating tools "that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works"? He's now walking back his criticism -- at least somewhat. Gizmodo reports: Palihapitiya said that he believes that "Facebook is a force for good in the world," and went on to express his belief that the social network is really trying to make its platform less of a hellish garbage fire of misinformation and election interference. "Facebook has made tremendous strides in coming to terms with its unforeseen influence and, more so than any of its peers, the team there has taken real steps to course correct," he wrote in the post... Facebook is certainly trying to soothe naysayers who think the platform might be rotting the brains of our youth -- a viewpoint that Sean Parker, Facebook's first president, essentially expressed last month... For Palihapitiya's part, Thursday night's statement wasn't a total reversal of his original claims, but s...

    A Maine alternative newsweekly just interviewed self-taught rocket scientist "Mad" Mike Hughes, who still believes that the earth is a flat, Frisbee-shaped disc. ("Think about this. Australia -- which is supposedly on the other side of the planet -- is upside down yet they're holding the waters in the ocean. Now how is that happening?") And Mike's got a new way to prove it after his aborted launch attempt in November. An anonymous reader writes: "One thing I want to clarify is that this rocket was never supposed to prove that the Earth is flat," Hughes tells an interviewer. "I was never going to go high enough to do that." But he will prove it's flat -- with an even riskier stunt. "I have a plan to go 62 miles up to the edge of space. It's going to cost $1.8 million and that could happen within 10 months." "I'm going to have a balloon built at about $250,000 with $100,000 worth of hydrogen in it. It will lift me up about 20 miles... If I'm unconscious, they can use the controls to br...

    New Comic: It Burns Us

    Tycho: Sometimes my friend Amy Falcone says that something is “a lot,” and now Gorborath has adopted it.  Generally something is “a lot” when you “can’t even.”  That’s the threshold. I feel like 52 billion dollars is a lot. I can’t contextualize it in any way.  Numbers that big trail off into occult geometries, chthonic vibrations, and hissing parselmouth.  It feels like we’ve entered the Epoch Of Gargantua; these are creatures whose slightest movement carves valleys.  I really like a lot of the stuff they make,…...

    New Comic: Shivering In The Jeweled Dark

    Tycho: The Sword of the Conqueror Notes compiled 1489 DR (AC, SCRTRN) Long ago, there was said to be a great King whose Gray Fortress dwelt both in Shadow and in Light.  And from this palace, which had a face of cruel stone, the King built two kingdoms - one in each realm. The Forces of Light in the story - in literal terms, the Armies of the Prime Material - could not break the Grey, nor could the Forces of Shadow.  In time an alliance was formed between these two armies, and a weapon forged to mark that bond.  Called Schism, it was a flexible spear of eleven and one half feet in…...

    Tycho: I feast on spoilers; I actively seek them out.  I typically read the last page of a book first - just one more way in which I am an iconoclast, whose zesty street wisdom is incalculable by the undifferentiated Norm.  The problem is that there exists a kind of Reverse Market for this type of illicit information, and it’s generally flooded with nonsense. I have a ton of PAX South news to get to, so let’s jump in.  First, we had a demo of True Dungeon set up last year, and it was incredible  We are overjoyed to have the full thing this year, and our joy is further…...

    Tycho: (Here’s the strip.  I’ve never had a single interaction with Geoff Keighley that wasn’t good, so there’s no beef; I just do a lot of public appearances too and it’s a very fragile time.  Here’s today’s Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team fic, with art by Kate Welch, that is to say, Rosie Beestinger.) Like a spring icicle, the protection money continued to drip, drip, drip. It had started with Marvin from the New Ironbark Inn.  He’d settled in the northern tip of Red Larch after fleeing the destruction of Nemezir,…...

    New Comic: Drumroll

    Tycho: I’ve wanted to see The Last Jedi ever since I got out of the theater for The Force Awakens.  Arguably, I’ve wanted to see it ever since I knew there was such a thing as Star Wars.  You know me; I’ve wanted people to ask hard questions about these fucking Space Wizards from the jump.  It seems like we might be getting there?  Anyway, it’s out next week and that seems a little crazy, but I am “not mad at it.” It technically starts showing before the 15th, a day we call the 14th.  So the day of our Dinner is also when this thoroughly…...

    This weekend, at Bandai Namco's LEVEL UP event in Paris, the studio revealed a Switch port of their neon-soaked, bass-heavy, arcade-action title Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus.Plus is a revamped edition of Pac-Man CE 2, itself is the sequel to one of last generation's best games. The Switch port brings all of CE2's screens, modes, music and features to Nintendo's hybrid-console, but also includes an exclusive Co-Op mode. Two players take a Joy Con each to guide their respective Pac-Men (Pac-Mans?) through the mazes, greedily gobbling dots, ghosts and boss characters with reckless abandon.As the pellet-trail naturally guides Pac-Man through each maze, Co-Op mode requires some adaptation on the two players behalf. Should one player divert, or be chased, from his or her given path, that one wrong turn could cost valuable time and points as both players improvise to get the greedy bastards back on track. ...

    This past week, I was handed a story from Soranews24 of a tweet about a Japanese father.

This past week, I was handed a story from Rocketnews24 of a tweet story about a Japanese father. What followed was his own personal chronicle of how he met his daughter's boyfriend and challenged him to a match of Guilty Gear as a show of dominance, which ended about as badly as you can imagine.

He ended up with no dinner and got kicked out of the house just because he's been playing Gui...

    [I was still in my twenties the first time I read this blog. At exactly two months into my thirties, this feels more relevant than ever.  In the newest entry for our Who Let The Blogs Out initiative, where we promote older blogs that may have been overlooked the first time around, SpielerDad gives us a good, stern talking to about some of the aging characters in video games. – Kevin] Getting older is not as bad as people make it out to be. Take it from me, as someone who has been on this merry-go-round called earth over thirty-six times. Complaining about it is so cliché anyway. Sure, my muscles ache a bit more than they used to, and my peaches hang down a little lower, and my beard has a touch of grey here and there, but you learn to deal. Perhaps the worst part was the thinning of my long beautiful mane of hair, but I just started shaving all that shit off. Now I’m a sexy bald man, like the late, great Telly Savalas. ...

    I didn’t hear about Gorogoa until I read an article about its creator, Jason Roberts, and his seven-year journey developing this game. It intrigued me, as did the art in the screenshots, and I felt I owed it to him in some way to play this passion project. Spending seven years is a long damn time to work on a single game. Gorogoa proves it was time well spent. Read more......

    I remember when I first bought my PlayStation Vita. It was early last year. I made the decision to drop $150 on a used one after spending more than half a year with my PS TV and continuously getting upset at how many games wouldn't work on it. Actually getting my hands on the device made me realize what I was missing this whole time. The Vita is an immaculate machine. My hands never get cramped when I spend hours working my way through one of the thousand different JRPGs it has and the screen on the thing is a real beaut. Just a shame it never got the support it deserved. With a dearth of titles from Sony itself, the device was left to flail in the wind, only able to keep itself relevant thanks to a consumer base willing to spend money and a developer pool willing to dedicate time and energy to making Vita games. We like to joke that Sony doesn't even know what a Vita is. But clearly whoever is pulling the strings on the Japanese PlayStation Twitter account knows what ...

    Since starting this weekly feature back in January, I’ve tried to keep things positive. There is so much negativity throughout gaming that the last thing we need is another article on a somewhat popular website throwing shade and trashing the art tens or dozens or hundreds of people spend years trying to make a reality. That’s what I’ve only asked happy questions, for the most part, and plan to continue doing so going forward.  But this week? Fuck it. I’m in a mood so let’s get nasty talking about the game or games we hate the most. One of the reasons I've avoided this topic is I couldn’t think of a game I absolutely despised. I never played E.T. or Superman 64 or all the other stereotypical games that always end up on these lists. (Side-note: Knowing what we know about E.T. and its development, can we all just agree to lay off it?) It’s not that hard for me to find fun ...

    At the recent ARMS Japan Grand Prix 2017, Nintendo showed a teaser for the upcoming Version 5.0. The teaser showcases a new character and stage, as well as possibly some more cinematic elements.

    I used to be a pretty big scaredy cat when it came to games (not so much with films, though – the interactive side to games really had the potential to freak me out). After toughing it out for a few weeks with REmake earlier on in the year, I think I made some good progress towards having a normal tolerance for spooky games. I would no longer flinch and switch my console off straight away at the first sign of a zombie, and I realised that I felt no fear whatsoever trying the original BioShock for the first time in October. Of course, that doesn't mean I am now immune to blood, guts and gore. In fact, my jimmies were thoroughly rustled just last week by a game that appears innocuous on the surface but is designed to bury its way under your skin, like a rather nasty and persistent parasite. I knew the secret, I knew the surprise. But it still didn't prepare me for how tense I would be throughout pretty much the whole second half of the game....

    Bandai Namco is bringing Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus to the Nintendo Switch, including a new and exclusive co-op mode.

    As the year winds down, many who play video games are sharing a similar sentiment right now: the years end means a time to reflect on the inevitable back-log. Back-logs manifest themselves through a variety of ways, but no matter the player, they probably have a backlog. 2017 in particular was an onslaught of games that didnt fail to impress....

    One of the biggest challenges to implementing an end-to-end Continuous Delivery pipeline is making sure adequate test automation is in place. However, even if you have automated across your entire Test Suite, there is a second challenge: How do you manage Test infrastructure and environments without breaking the bank? If you want to move towards Continuous Delivery, you need to execute a majority of your tests for each code change in a pristine environment that is as close to your production environment as possible. This ensures that code defects are identified immediately and every code change is therefore "shippable." However, creating these environments and updating them with each new application version or every time the config changes adds a lot of overhead. If you're testing an application with many tiers or microservices, the complexity increases since each tier ...

In reference to the state of software testing in 2017, we here make bold predictions of trends of software testing for 2018 and beyond....

    In one of my last posts, I showed you how to install and enable a Postgres extension called LTREE.

As we’ll see, using LTREE I can count leaves, cut off branches, and climb up and down trees easily — all using SQL right inside my application’s existing Postgres database! But trees are natural, haphazard, branching structures with countless leaves, while database tables are man-made rectangles full of numbers and text. How can I possibly save a beautiful tree structure into an ugly, boring database table?...

Starting from a set of requirements to meet, they designed their engine and analyzed it in software before embarking on physical model assembly. An engine monitoring system was developed in parallel and integrated into the model. These embedded sensors gave performance feedback, and armed with data the team iterated though ideas to improve their design. …read more...

If you don’t have an Mbed board but fancy giving it a go, you might imagine that you’d be out of luck, but [Jan Jongboom] could have an answer to your problem in the form of an Mbed simulation in your browser. We’re not high-end ARM microcontroller developers here at Hackaday so beyond observing that it brings the Mbed abstraction layer binaries to the browser through the magic of Emscripten …read more...

    Infrared remote controls are simple and ubiquitous. Emulating them with the aid of a microcontroller is a common project that hackers use to control equipment as diverse as televisions, cable boxes, and home stereos. Some air conditioners can be a little more complicated, however, but [Ken]’s here to help. The root of the problem is that the air conditioner remote was using a non-obvious checksum to verify if commands received were valid. To determine the function generating the checksum, [Ken] decided to bust out the tools of differential cryptanalysis. This involves carefully varying the input to a cryptographic function and …read more...
