Google's a DDoS tool: security tester

Net neutrality or protection racket?

If peer to peer traffic is clogging the Internet and slowing down Skype calls, why not mark it as lower priority and do the download overnight? The software updates and Word of Warcraft files that use P2P quite legally aren't hugely urgent and that kind of 'when you’re not busy' bandwidth usage is how Microsoft makes Windows Update polite (the Background Internet Transfer Service doesn't work quite like P2P but some of the principles are similar).

The firewall is a little restrictive, don't you think?

We recently installed a new firewall that will ultimately allow the high school to act as a hub for all district network traffic. Since we're the only building with the space, HVAC, and bandwidth to act as a de facto data center, this makes good sense and will allow for common authentication, distributed backups, and centralized anti-malware and content filtering.

Cellphones to monitor highway traffic

On February 8, 2008, about 100 UC Berkeley students will participate in the Mobile Century experiment, using GPS mobile phones as traffic sensors. During the whole day, these students carrying the GPS-equipped Nokia N95 will drive along a 10-mile stretch of I-880 between Hayward and Fremont, California. 'The phones will store the vehicles' speed and position information every 3 seconds. These measurements will be sent wirelessly to a server for real-time processing.' As more and more cellphones are GPS-equipped, the traffic engineering community, which currently monitors traffic using mostly fixed sensors such as cameras and loop detectors, is tempted to use our phones to get real-time information about traffic. But read more...
