RIM investigates BlackBerry PlayBook rooting

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

DingleberryYesterday we reported that the BlackBerry PlayBook was efficiently rooted by a developer through the “dingleberry” strategy. Properly, it looks like RIM is now mindful of the circumstance and is searching into it. The company unveiled a assertion stating that it is now in get in touch with with the “security scientists” at the rear of the exploit. RIM is also informed of the developer’s ideas to release tools that will allow any person root their PlayBook, and has talked about that if that transpires, an investigation will take location.

For those of you who are anxious that the securities of your BlackBerry telephones will be compromised, dread not. RIM has declared that the exploit only impacts the PlayBook and their smartphones are unaffected. This is definitely intriguing as RIM’s subsequent operating system, BBX, will be a combination of QNX and BlackBerry OS, so I guess they want to be totally certain that this sort of exploits won’t be achievable in the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, the dingleberry site has been set up, however no resources for rooting the PlayBook have been put up yet. How numerous of you are eager on rooting your PlayBook?

Watch a Montage of Barney Frank Being Frank with Friends and Foes

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

When Congressman Barney Frank declared on Monday that he won’t be operating for reelection next 12 months, Television producers from New York to D.Do. almost certainly gasped collectively in panic. Who would fill the role on night cable information exhibits of the exasperated interviewee unabashedly zinging those across the aisle while also providing constant YouTube fodder from the Home flooring? That chamber is down one particular sharp-tongued Democrat as it is. In planning for Frank’s departure, we’ve compiled a sampling of some of his most amusing verbal punches. Not amazingly, Newt Gingrich is frequently the punching bag.

Data Shows: Removing ‘Rogue Sites’ From Search Won’t Make Much Of A Difference

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

The legacy entertainment industry absolutely loves to blame Google for its problems. As I’ve noted in the past, it’s mostly a correlation-not-causation error. That is, they see their own difficulty in adapting and sinking revenues (mainly at the record labels) and they see Google making a ton of money — and they conclude that the two things are related, and that Google must be to blame. That’s why they keep demanding that Google “take action” against the so-called “rogue sites.” It seemed like a reasonable question, then, to see just how much traffic Google actually sends to these sites. Thankfully Compete tracks a lot of this kind of data… and the MPAA recently handed us a list of “rogue sites” to look at.

Pulling up the data on traffic sources for every site listed there shows that taking the big search engines out of the equation would barely matter. Across all 19 sites listed, 85% DOES NOT come from search (Google, Yahoo and Bing). Specifically, across all of those sites, the big three search engines deliver a whopping 15.2% of the traffic to those sites. Google sends about 11.5% of the traffic. Remove search links… and those sites will see a slight dip — at best.

Of course, not all of these sites are equal, so we decided to look more closely at the favorite bogeyman of the legacy entertainment industry: The Pirate Bay. To hear the industry tell the story, if Google just blocked The Pirate Bay from its results, traffic would dry up. The evidence there suggests that the entertainment industry doesn’t have the facts on their side (do they ever?). Google search drives slightly less than 22% of The Pirate Bay’s traffic. Considering how many sites rely on Google for traffic, this is well below average. Add in Yahoo Search and Bing, and we’re still talking about less than 28% of TPB’s traffic actually coming from search.

And of that search traffic, what are people searching for? Well, most are searching for some variation on “the pirate bay.” We looked at all of the search traffic to TPB for the past three months. The top 16 search terms that send traffic to TPB are some variation on the site’s name. These are the top eight search terms, for example:

  1. pirate bay
  2. the pirate bay
  3. piratebay
  4. thepiratebay
  5. tpb
  6. piratebay.org
  7. pirates bay
  8. thepiratebay.org

In other words, people getting to TPB from Google already know exactly what they’re looking for. It’s actually pretty rare for people to just randomly search on an artist’s name, and have Google send them off to The Pirate Bay. In fact, going through the top 100 search terms that take people to The Pirate Bay, less than 30% appear to be direct searches for infringing material — and only two of those don’t involve the material in question and a word that shows the person is clearly looking for infringing material (mostly “torrent”, but sometimes “serial number” or something like that). Meaning that only 2 of the top 100 searches that drive people to The Pirate Bay actually involve people just searching for content without making it clear that they’re looking for either TPB or a torrent file specifically. Those two searches? “Drake take care download” and “r kelly sex tape.”

Take Care, of course, is Drake’s high profile new album — the same one that Drake made clear he didn’t mind if people listened to the leaked versions online — effectively sanctioning people to search for the downloads. It’s also been a highly successful album on the sales front, anyway — selling over 600,000 copies in its debut week. Doesn’t sound like Drake is really suffering because of this search. As for the R. Kelly tape… well… let’s just not go there.

Still, the point is pretty clear: Google and the other search engines don’t really drive that much traffic to TPB (or other so-called “rogue sites”), and an awful lot of the traffic they do drive… is people searching for TPB itself (meaning they’re just using Google as a shortcut, rather than to “discover” infringing works). And, when Google does drive people to specific content, it’s usually because the person is already looking for what’s almost certain to be an unauthorized version. Thus, the picture the industry paints of people doing innocent searches for authorized content, and somehow being waylaid by Google pointing them to TPB just isn’t seen in the data. At all.

Force Google, Yahoo and Bing to “block” links to TPB and it will have almost no impact on traffic to TPB. It may annoy some people who use Google for navigation (rather than discovery), but it won’t stop them from going to TPB, since that’s clearly what they want. The drive to force Google to either block or “warn” people about these links seems entirely pointless based on the data. So, once again, the data suggests that the industry is in hysterics based on reasons not supported by the data. The effort to make search engines block links would be a total and complete waste of time.

You need to install PowerPoint (not just the viewer) or an software that can develop PowerPoint files.

PowerPoint is not free of charge. If you are in search of a totally free substitute OpenOffice and NeoOffice can get you by.
