Security researchers Steven Murdoch and Saar Drimer demonstrated this effectively by replacing the guts of a PIN terminal with a program that can play Tetris.You can watch a video of it on YouTube.The two programmers used the Tetris example to highlight potential security concerns for PIN terminals, although it wasn’t much of a test of the software since they essentially replaced the hardware in the machine and kept only the shell.Security experts have already proven they can have their way with voting machines by reconfiguring the software.But while voting terminals are relatively new on the scene, PIN terminals are a trusted and ubiquitous part of the daily lives of consumers. If they can teach a PIN terminal’s existing software to run Tetris, consider me scared.Thanks to Boingboing and Engadget for the links.Universe hates Higgs boson, Chicago CubsBy John Bowman, CBCNews.

As for the etched sigil. I would change the apoc into meteor dmg. I dont like apoc on this build. We need the new generation of scientists to push for open access to be their method of choice, and for governments to incentivise the open access route by supporting the dissemination and discovery of articles, not just relying on a repository and google to do all the work. If you email a researcher and ask for their paper, they are allowed to send them to you for free and will be genuinely delighted to do so. I used to work, briefly, in this industry, so here is a view of where the money goes in academic publications..
