The failcast: how much d'oh can we take?

This week, we have a whole podcast of fail. Sony PlayStation Network's breach has to be one of the biggest "d'oh!" moments in data breach history, while iPhone's location-tracking has people fuming, global roaming prices are just plain ridiculous and the Amazon Web Services outage shows that cloud can break, too.

Satellites seeing clearly despite clouds

Two researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have developed a mathematical tweak which dramatically improves air pollution detection on cloudy days. They've found a way to reduce cloud-induced glare when satellites measure blue skies on cloudy days, by as much as ten-fold in some cases. 'Because clouds represent one of the largest areas of uncertainty, eventually this could lead to improved climate models.' The method is remarkably simple. Researchers discovered that combining measurements of reflected light at several wavelengths can eliminate the cloud effects, making air pollution measurements much more accurate. These results need to be confirmed, but the method could soon be used to data being collected by NASA's Earth Observing System in skies near clouds. But read more...
