  • True tales of (mostly) white-hat hacking

    Stings, penetration pwns, spy games -- it's all in a day's work along the thin gray line of IT security

  • Hot mobile startups to watch

    Just how big of a deal is mobile? Three years ago there were an estimated 400 venture capital deals for mobile companies, with about $3 billion invested in the industry. Last year, according to Rutberg & Co., which tracks mobile investments, VCs poured more than $6.85 billion into mobile startups across about a thousand deals. Mobile companies captured 40% of venture capital funding last year, Rutberg found.

  • The 19 generations of computer programmers

    If you're searching for a fountain of youth, the easiest way to get that feeling of continual rebirth is to hang around a few tech product launches. Every new rollout comes with the fresh, unabashed feeling that this has never been done before. Ever.

  • Red Hat, Xen, Java, Cloudera software support ready for 64-bit ARM

    There's been a lot of talk from hardware vendors about 64-bit ARM servers, but without software the fledgling platform won't get very far. Several big vendors made announcements this week that show software support is on its way.

  • A year after DigiNotar security breach, Fox-IT details extent of compromise

  • Not IPv6-ready? It's time to start planning

    According to the Internet Society, thousands of companies and millions of websites are now permanently deploying IPv6. So it's safe to say the Internet is officially no longer a homogeneous IPv4-only Internet - it is a dual-protocol IPv4-IPv6 Internet. While the proportion of IPv6 Internet traffic is relatively small today, the composition of today's Internet is already shifting.

  • The 9 greatest IT security threats

    Hacking has evolved from one-person crime of opportunity to an open market of sophisticated malware backed by crime syndicates and money launders

  • Starting a Big Data initiative

    Through many surveys, executives have identified that Big Data initiatives rank high on the projects lists for 2012 and 2013. It's not surprising, since the promise that Big Data can improve and streamline presentations, gain insights to consumer purchasing habits and, in the healthcare industry, even help save lives is simply too important to ignore.

  • What's the fastest browser? Maybe you're measuring it wrong

    Among all those very scientific benchmarks we forget one factor: the user. Our human eye is incapable of distinguishing the 221 ms load time of a JavaScript applet in IE9 from the 220 ms load time in Firefox 17. Do we even notice if Chrome opens a website in 778 ms versus IE's 953 ms? Humans think in seconds, not milliseconds.
