  • Web scraping is legal says the Ninth Circuit. (Tech Crunch)

    If you put the data out there in public, it's out there in public. You can mess around making it difficult to scrape (Instagram) but if the data is public, it's public.
    "We’re disappointed in the court’s decision. This is a preliminary ruling - stop laughing - and the case is far from over - I said, stop laughing," said LinkedIn spokesperson Greg Snapper in a statement. "We will continue to fight to protect our members’ ability to control the information they make publicly available on LinkedIn. On LinkedIn, our members trust us with their information, though we don't know why, which is why we prohibit entirely legal scraping of public data."
    Well, he almost said that. Close enough.

  • Never back up anything. (Bleeping Computer)

    In fact, the more important the file is, the more important it is not to back it up. In this case, a MetaMask seed file couple with a weak password, an iCloud backup, and a bit of social engineering enabled the theft of $665,000.

  • Need a 4 port 100GbE / 16 port 25GbE web-managed switch but only have $800? MicroTik has you covered. (Serve the Home)

    SFP of course; I haven't seen any switches supporting 25GBASE-T just yet.

  • Which universe do we live in? (Quanta)

    This matters, because if we live in an Algorithmica universe then there's an easy way to break all forms of encryption and we just haven't found it yet, and if we live in a Pessiland universe then many mathematical problems are effectively insoluble but cryptography is not reliable.

    They only problem is the labels all peeled off and we can't tell which one is us.

  • The four day work week is coming. (ZDNet)

    Not sure how you fit 100 hours of work into four days, but okay.

  • Benchmarks have already leaked for Intel's Sapphire Rapids server CPUs. (WCCFTech)

    How do Intel's new 56 core CPUs compare to AMD's existing 64 core processors? Not all that well, to be honest.
