There is a long-running legal battle between Oracle and Google over the use of Java, an Oracle product, in Android. In the latest court filing, Oracle is shooting for the moon: $9.3 billion in copyright damages from Google.
Tras décadas como fiel asistente de instalación de malware en los navegadores web, la existencia de ese vector de plagas online conocido como Java Plug in toca a su fin. Oracle ha anunciado que eliminará definitivamente el infortunado software en septiembre.
Oracle’s security chief Mary Ann Davidson published a rambling screed today against the security research industry, bug bounties, and reverse engineering on the company’s corporate blog. Oracle took it down, but the rant is one of the most impressively incoherent jeremiads to come out of Silicon Valley. And that’s…
Batgirl has been in the media for all the wrong reasons recently — but this is nothing new. The iconic heroine has long been a source of controversy for DC, thanks to a series of strange decisions. Here's the story of DC's Batgirls, and the controversies that have come to define them.
Yesterday, Vox somehow managed to write an entire article about the history of Oracle and its founder Larry Ellison without mentioning the CIA even once. Which is pretty astounding, given the fact that Oracle takes its name from a 1977 CIA project codename. And that the CIA was Oracle's first customer.
Larry Ellison is continuing his push to be the supervillain San Francisco deserves. He already has supervillain money, a supervillain island, and now, after cheating in his own yacht race, his minions are running wild across the city defrauding exotic dancers.
Abocada al declive. Es el futuro inmediato de Apple según el multimillonario Larry Ellion, fundador de Oracle. En una entrevista con Charlie Rose en la CBS, el magnate tecnológico dejó muy clara su opinión sobre el Apple post-Jobs: fracasará. Ellison, que fundó Oracle en 1977, tal vez se equivoque, pero pocos…
Intel's always been a bit of a brand machine—remember the "Intel Inside" stickers?—and on Tuesday it upheld that tradition. In a pivot from the sort of stodgy "Sponsors of Tomorrow" slogan, the company is going with the hacker-friendly "Look Inside." How much can a new slogan really matter, though? A lot, if history…
Oracle ha lanzado un parche de emergencia (el update 11) para intentar solucionar la vulnerabilidad de Java. Eso dice. Eso parece. Sin embargo, Adam Gowdiak, el experto en seguridad que descubrió inicialmente el fallo asegura que todavía no es 100% seguro utilizar los plugins de Java en el navegador. En sus propias…
Java isn't good for your for your computer's health right now. It can mess it up pretty bad. Bad enough that the Department of Homeland Security is warning us all to turn it off. OK, but how do you do that? Fortunately, it's not that hard.
We've been concerned about the security of Java for a while now. There was that vulnerability that affected like a billion computers, and Apple went so far as to remove Java plugins from all OSX browsers. Now even the Department of Homeland Security is in on the act with a special message: "Yo, shut off that Java jazz
The US Military makes its fair share of mistakes when it comes to technology—but over the weekend, the New York Times revealed that even upgrading a single software system can go horribly wrong for it.
If you aren't already familiar with PBS's Idea Channel, drop what you're doing and go check it out. Immediately. In fact, why don't you start with the video featured here, in which the Idea Channel's Mike Rugnetta presents a damn compelling case that William Gibson is pretty much a modern day soothsayer.
Well, to be fair, any list of bloggers is going to be less fun than any expectation you could possibly have for it. (And your expectations for a blogger list better be pretty low to begin with.) But this list of who commented on the Oracle vs. Google trial, while also being paid by Google? Dud.
As the last details of the Google vs. Oracle Java lawsuit wrap up, both companies have responed to a court order to disclose paid bloggers. Google has claimed they had none, despite Oracle's assertions to the contrary. Oracle fessed up to one.
