Full disk encryption

Last night had a good time when watched 24 from FOX. One scenario is that some highly useful information was recovered from an exploded laptop hard drive. After equipping with all fancy high technologies, they still forgot to do FDE. Just being curious, I should google and see how fast a computer forensicist can deal with an AES encrypted hard drive. Can he/she do it in 24 hours? 😉

Brocade bought Sliverback

Detailed news can be found here. Though we do not know how much Brocade paid. But the news said this

“Brocade did not say yesterday how much it paid for privately held Silverback, but said it was “not material,” meaning it’s not enough money to have to be reported to shareholders.”

So it is a small money. Or means Sliverback is not a successful start up. But the iSCSI HBA from Silverback is nice. I tried one back in 2004 and it is blading fast. Again, good technology means not much… 😛

What a special slick deal!

By the end of this year, the contents of all 1,800 courses taught at one of the world’s most prestigious universities will be available online to anyone in the world, anywhere in the world. Learners won’t have to register for the classes, and everyone is accepted

If you spend your spare time on it and finish all courses, will MIT give you the credits and eventually a degree?

Peoplerank from Google?

A NYT article reported that Google soon will use a new algorithm to screen job applicant.

When you have tons of web page floating in Web, you need a pagerank to get the right search results, so when you get tons of job applications, you will need a peoplerank to get the right person(s). Can they open source it so all the recruiters can use it and save a lot of labor? Or they will patent it and gain profit?

Maybe I should register a “job interview appliance” domain or patent now? 😉

Update: The word “peoplerank” is used for other purpose already…:P
