Quantum Gravity?

Einstein, meet Heisenberg… Heisenbert, Einstein!

Physicist Fotini Markopoulou Kalamara has developed a way to connect relativity with quantum theory–while making sure that cause still precedes effect.

What sort of breakthroughs will this bring about? Will we someday be able to control gravity?

Trekking into Oblivion?

This review of Nemesis seems to think that the film is a total waste

In all, Nemesis is a creative disappointment. With other genre pictures of late leading a new wave of sci-fi/fantasy creativity, Trek seems more archaic and less sophisticated than ever. I honestly doubt that non-Trek audiences will find much of interest here. Here’s hoping the “good” films switch to the odd-numbered films next time around.

Say it ain’t so!

Hot Dog reviews TTT

These last few weeks are going to be torture!

THE TWO TOWERS supasses all levels of expectation, and in the process it makes everything that THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING achieved look tame by comparison.

Lord God Almighty! Can this be possible? It’s what every fan has hoped for, but didn’t believe could be done… out strip an already perfect work of film and blow past it like it was standing still!

Where do I go to stand in line [[:-)]].

Oscar for Gollum?

It’s a beautiful statue, my preciousssss…

There was never any Oscar buzz for the performances of Jar Jar Binks or Dobby, but New Line is hoping that Gollum will be up for an acting Academy Award in March.

Now, wouldn’t that be a hoot!

From what I’ve gathered from around the web, Andy Serkis gives an incredible performance and will probably deserve at least a nomination.

We likes, we does!

MS: Don’t Trust MS!

According to Microsoft, you can’t trust Microsoft to supply secure software!

Not was enough that recent vulnerability in IE that can run any program in an unpatched windows system. Now there is another related to an ActiveX control that can make IE and IIS to run any code in the system. The Microsoft solution? kill the related ActiveX control and replace it with a safe one. The Microsoft problem? As this control is Microsoft signed, any site can require it, upload it and replace the “good” one with the vulnerable one. The final recomendation from Microsoft? Don’t trust/run ActiveX controls signed by Microsoft.

The truth really is stranger than fiction!!!

Return to WOZ

Steve Wozniak will appear at this year’s Mac Expo.

Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak is taking the stage at Macworld Expo after a six-year absence and will be giving his first presentation there in more than a decade.

For the 3 people out there that don’t know, [[Woz]] is the super-genius that is responsible for bringing the computer to the masses. Yes, Steve Jobs is a marketing genius that made sure it was seen, but Woz developed it. It’s good to see Woz in action again!

Millions Vulnerable with MS Web Software

A software bug in a common component of Microsoft Web servers and Internet Explorer could leave millions of servers and home PCs open to attack, security researchers said Wednesday.

This is yet another good reason to stick to open standards and open source for things like this. Any flaw is completely visible by the public, and therefore usually gets fixed quickly.

The vulnerability, found by security company Foundstone and confirmed by Microsoft, could allow an Internet attacker to take over a Web server, spread an e-mail virus or create a fast-spreading network worm.

It’s highly unlikely that something like this would happen with Apache!
