HTTPS Everywhere | Electronic Frontier Foundation

HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS. Information about how to access the project’s Git repository and get involved in development is here.

Visual explanation of how HTTPS Everywhere works

 

Webmasters and prospective contributors: Check the HTTPS Everywhere Atlas to quickly see how existing HTTPS Everywhere rules affect sites you care about! HTTPS Everywhere is governed by EFF’s Privacy Policy for Software.

Problems Installing: Some people report that installing HTTPS Everywhere gives them the error: “The addon could not be downloaded because of a connection failure on www.eff.org.”

COVID-19 Technology Access Framework | Office of Technology Licensing

We strongly believe that while intellectual property rights can often serve to incentivize the creation of new products, such rights should not become a barrier to addressing widespread, urgent and essential health-related needs. To address the global COVID-19 pandemic, we are each implementing technology transfer strategies to allow for and incentivize rapid utilization of our available technologies that may be useful for preventing, diagnosing and treating COVID-19 infection during the pandemic.

To achieve our common goal, we each individually commit to the following guidelines:

1. We are committed to implementing COVID-19 patenting and licensing strategies that are consistent with our goal of facilitating rapid global access. For most types of technologies, this includes the use of rapidly executable non-exclusive royalty-free licenses to intellectual property rights that we have the right to license, for the purpose of making and distributing products to prevent, diagnose and treat COVID-19 infection during the pandemic

DriveInfo Gadget Review – A Free System Monitoring Tool

Microsoft discontinued all desktop gadgets for Windows Vista and Windows 7 due to serious vulnerabilities. We recommend following Microsoft’s guidance and NOT using any desktop gadgets.

The DriveInfo gadget is one of our favorite system utility gadgets for Windows. There are plenty of useful options including several background and icon choices, but overall it’s still an easy to use Windows gadget.

The DriveInfo gadget displays the remaining free space on your hard drive(s) in both percentage and GB format. There’s even a handy progress-type bar that graphically displays used disk space.

Pros & Cons

Aside from missing a small option, DriveInfo is a must-have system utility gadget:

What We Like

  • Isn’t confusing to use

  • Very simple to read

  • Contains several background and icon choices

  • Several options provide flexibility in drives displayed

  • Doubles as a drive shortcut list

  • Can display more than one drive at once

Epson EH-TW9200W, 2400ANSI, FullHD 16:9, WiFi, 2x 3D-Glasses

My third projector will be installed this evening 🙂

  • from 2005 – 2008 Panasonic PT-AE900
  • from 2008 – 2015 Sanyo Z2000

It is a big upgrade from my Sanyo Z2000. I currently have a Dalite TENSIONED COSMOPOLITAN ELECTROL 16:9 HDTV 133”. This screen has always looked to sparkly on the whites during viewing. It is even worse with this new projector.

Why this model and not the Panasonic PT-AE8000 (first out in 2011 now for 1770 CHF)

Better than the Panasonic PT-AE8000 for me because

  • Latest technology: model first available in end of 2013,
  • 2 HDMI on the back only but wireless transmitting (+5 HDMI) = 7 HDMI in total,
  • 2D-to-3D conversion,
  • Frame Interpolation,
  • 2 x 3D glasses are included,
  • Wireless HDMI,
  • Panasonic has a 2000 hour limit which ends warranty coverage. No hour limit on Epson.
  • But all in all more expensive (+1000 CHF).

The Trouble with Digital Transformation

Despite growing acknowledgment of the need for digital transformation, most companies struggle to get clear business benefits from new digital technologies. They lack both the management temperament and relevant experience to know how to effectively drive transformation through technology.


There is no one factor that impedes digital transformation.


Even companies where leadership has demonstrated it can effectively leverage technology can run into challenges with new digital technologies. Today’s emerging technologies, like social media, mobile, analytics and embedded devices, demand different mindsets and skill sets than previous waves of transformative technology.


There is no one factor that impedes digital transformation. Lack of vision or sense of urgency plagued many companies, culture at others, and organizational constraints problems at still others. Our research highlighted nine specific hurdles in the broad areas of leadership, institutional obstacles and execution that companies need

Pixar’s computer graphics pioneers have won the $1 million Turing Award

Two men who invented game-changing 3D computer graphics techniques now widely used in the film industry have won the highest distinction in computer science: the Turing Award. If you enjoyed Toy Story, The Lord of the Rings, Finding Nemo, Titanic, Avatar, or Jurassic Park, you have them to thank.

Who are they? Edwin Catmull and Patrick Hanrahan. Catmull cofounded Pixar and hired biophysics PhD Hanrahan as one of the first employees in 1986. Hanrahan spent much of his time modeling materials and lighting to help animations look closer to real life. “Physicists generally don’t study hair or skin, and why they look the way they do. I did, and spent years thinking about how to get things like lighting right,” he told MIT Technology Review.

Their work: Hanrahan was the lead architect of the team that created the complex software known as RenderMan, which

Views on the future of advertising from Mediassociates

Like all great inventions, SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas, has gone through its Gartner Hype Cycle. First came the buzzing hyperbole. In 2007, a startup called Twitter took SXSW by storm, and one year later, Mark Zuckerberg was grilled in a interview (deemed either disastrous or sexist)  by journalist Sarah Lacy, generating wild enthusiasm for Facebook as the new, big media platform. Were you there? Did you hear Zuck speak? If you worked in media, SXSW Interactive each March — a thought-leadership series far different than the concurrent music and film SXSW carnivals — was the place to be.

And then the buzz collapsed. Big brands crept in, taking over entire buildings with “activations” and with their slickness eroding SXSW’s cool. Some of this was positive: The 9:1 male-female ratio of the conference’s early days became more 50:50, and the exaggerated hoopla over every little app launch (Foursquare, Gowalla, Color,
