Security & developer:
- Solaris 10, OS X, iOS, Windows XP (and once upon a time - AIX & Multics)

The most interesting thing about President Obama’s verification photo for the Reddit AMA he’s doing right now? Trackpads must not be his thing; he’s using a Magic Mouse.
Serious Reddit user is serious.
Also, is that a Retina MacBook Pro?
too many ports on the side to be a Retina. on extreme zoom, it looks like there are two jacks past the SD card slot, which would make it a 15” MBP (vs one jack on a 13” MBP).

An average US citizen on an average day, it says, consumes 100,500 words, whether that be email, messages on social networks, searching websites or anywhere else digitally. And as the university says we sleep for seven hours a day, in practice that means that three quarters of waking time is spent receiving information, the majority of which is electronic.
The Internet Defense League
Public enemy number one: ACTA and CISPA style legislation that seems to sprout like mushrooms these days.
Ohanian describes the project, which they plan to officially launch next month, as a “Bat-Signal for the Internet.” Any website owner can sign up on the group’s website to add a bit of code to his or her site–or receive that code by email at the time of a certain campaign–that can be triggered in the case of a political crisis like SOPA, adding an activist call-to-action to all the sites involved, such as a widget or banner asking users to sign petitions, call lawmakers, or boycott companies.
“People who wish to be tapped can see, oh look, the Bat-Signal is up. Time to do something,” says Ohanian. “Whatever website you own, this is a way for you to be notified if something comes up and take some basic actions…If we aggregate everyone that’s doing it, the numbers start exploding.”
Love that Alexis Ohanian has jumped into online activism with both feet. It may be an even bigger gift to the Web than Reddit was.

This is pretty funny.
Amazon just split the tablet market with Apple. The Kindle Fire is subsidized because you’ll shop more. Apple will stay high-end. Every tablet maker in the middle is screwed.
