I *love* pwn2own! Safari and IE8 were cracked on the first day, but not Chrome. Read more: http://www.eweek.com/c...
Chrome wasn't pwned because the contestants didn't show up, not because it's more secure. - Mark Trapp
Like - for Mark's comment. - Space Cowboy
Ditto. - Micah
Anyone know why the Chrome contestants didn't turn up? I assume you would try to turn up if you thought you had a decent shot, particularly given the extra prize money. - Simon
Simon: there's been some confusion about what was allowed on the day of the contest this year. Chrome was patched last night (last week?) in preparation for Pwn2Own, so there's some speculation it was that, but the machines were supposedly locked down last week (which is why Safari 5.0.3 was pwned, not 5.0.4., which was released today). Ars Technica has a more thorough run-down than... more... - Mark Trapp
Also, it's a bit disingenuous to say Safari was cracked within seconds (as some are reporting) or that it only took the maximum of 30 minutes to pwn a computer: one of the requirements to win is that you can't use a disclosed vulnerability so these exploits are the result of weeks and months of testing. It's the final demonstration that only took 5 seconds to deploy. That's one of the really dumb parts of Pwn2Own: they incentivize not reporting vulnerabilities in order to win the yearly contest. - Mark Trapp

"The receptionists at Google always seemed overqualified for the tasks they were given. They smiled and pointed guests to the cooler full of free Naked Juice, explained how the massage chairs in the lobby worked, dialed the extension of the person being called upon and then consoled the visitor for half an hour or so until the Googler in question showed up. One result was that when given the opportunity to express themselves in more intellectually stimulating ways, they did so." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

Doctors: We have cured man of HIV - AIDS - Salon.com
"Doctors: We have cured man of HIV Using stem cells, a medical team in Germany says it has rid the "Berlin Patient" of his HIV infection" - Tudor Bosman from Bookmarklet
"The doctors' findings will be published in the December issue of the peer-reviewed journal Blood, but the Web is aflutter with the implications of their research. This, one source reports, paves the way for an HIV cure using genetically engineered stem cells." - Tudor Bosman
So why is the US so stuffy about stem cell research and use? If these types of things are possible, I say go for it. - Sally - Skyrimmin' It
This is cool in multiple ways. The patient had leukemia, which relapsed, and was going to try a stem cell treatment that would improve his chance of cancer survival. This is a treatment of last resort: it kills about one third of those to whom it is administered. The doctors looked for a potential stem cell donor that has a HIV-resistant mutation, and found one. Due to the patient's... more... - Tudor Bosman
This can't exactly be made into a general-purpose HIV cure, but it's a start. - Tudor Bosman
Sally it's the source of the Stem cell which is an issue. Christians don't like the thought of killing people for research. So aborted babies and fertilized eggs meant for invetro fertilization are the sources they want banned. - Dario Gomez
Religious arguments are difficult for me to comprehend but at least now I have perspective for the counterpoint. - Sally - Skyrimmin' It
As far as I can tell, though, they used the standard protocol for treating relapsed AML: high-intensity chemotherapy followed by allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Even without HIV, the idea is that you kill every cell that rapidly proliferates, including the bone marrow, and including cells of the immune system that hide in usually inaccessible places like the central... more... - Victor Ganata

I think very carefully before I publicly reveal any data about users, even if it seems to be just aggregate data. In this instance, a user whose connection information is private and is one of few users out in a rural area could have private data revealed. - Bruce Lewis

"Mysore is the name of a city in India and Bonda is a deep fried flour dumpling. I have no clue why this is called Mysore bonda. May be the recipe originated in Mysore and got that name. This is a perfect snack for the chilly evenings. All purpose flour is mixed with sour yogurt and the dumplings are deep fried in oil. Mysore bonda is a popular street food in South India - often sold along with Mirchi Bajjis(green peppers dipped in chickpea flour and deep fried in oil) in portable stalls on the street corners." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
Never knew about these. Now I want some! - imabonehead
I would recommend that you try vada too... Tastes similar to a bonda but much crispier. :) - Space Cowboy
