WOW Power Leveling

 

World of Warcraft (often abbreviated as WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth released game set in the fantasy Warcraft universe, which was first introduced by Warcraft: Orcs & Humans in 1994. World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft world of Azeroth, approximately four years after the events at the conclusion of Blizzard’s previous Warcraft release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Blizzard Entertainment announced World of Warcraft on September 2, 2001. The game was released on November 23, 2004, on the 10th anniversary of the Warcraft franchise.

 

Trying to pick out five favorite lore moments from WoW is almost an impossible task. The problem with WoW lore is that there is simply so much of it out there that most people will get lost trying to follow it all. While yes, it’s an engaging and very rich story, it’s the sort of complex tapestry that will make you dizzy if you stare at it for too long.

The other problem, of course, is that picking only five from the giant list of lore that we’ve witnessed in WoW means that there are countless other moments that are going to be ignored, and I hate that. But for my list, my personal list, you’ll find very few of those giant, epic, sweeping battles that everyone would automatically call a pinnacle. I tend to like the more personal stuff.

5. The creation of Nightbane

The addition of Karazhan in Burning Crusade was something I looked forward to with a ferocity that has yet to be matched with anything else I’ve seen in WoW. It’s not the tower, sitting alone and forlorn in Deadwind Pass — it’s who that tower belonged to. I’ve been a Medivh fan for a very long time, and finally being able to walk the creepy halls of his long-forgotten home was a moment of sheer joy for me. But Karazhan had its own attunement chain — and within that chain was another chain, to unlock the boss Nightbane on The Master’s Terrace.

What I did not expect, when obtaining my own urn, was a flashback sequence of Nightbane’s creation. Medivh was the Guardian of Tirisfal, an incredibly powerful mage. And he also happened to be possessed by the spirit of Sargeras, something that didn’t rear its head until Medivh fully came into power. But with the incredible powers of the arcane comes the unwanted attention of the blue dragonflight. Medivh was crazy-powerful. So much so that the Blue Dragonflight sent Arcanagos to stop him.

And in one moment, it was demonstrated exactly how much power Medivh had at his disposal. And after that moment, there’s a glimpse of the “real” Medivh — not the power-mad Sargeras-infested Guardian, but the very tired man, uncertain of his actions and barely in control. It was a cool moment, and entirely unexpected.
4. Honor, Krom’gar

The Stonetalon Mountains was one of those areas I always skipped in vanilla. There was barely enough content there to be considered remotely interesting, save for some tree-planting in the Charred Vale that I always took part in. The revamp of 1-60 content in Cataclysm proved to be the best thing that ever happened to this zone. The pinnacle of Stonetalon is the quest To Be Horde… in which Garrosh Hellscream confronts Overlord Krom’gar over his horrific actions in Stonetalon.

For one brief moment, it looked as though Garrosh understood. That the lessons learned from Saurfang were sinking in. Unfortunately, it looks like these days the lessons learned from Stonetalon have long since faded away. But for Horde players, Stonetalon remains an evocative look at Garrosh Hellscream, and the Warchief that almost-might-have-been.

SpaceX scrambles to fix glitches with cargo ship
A SpaceX cargo ship loaded with more than a ton of spare parts, science equipment and crew supplies bound for the International Space Station thundered into orbit Friday, but trouble with the capsule’s thrusters forced flight controllers to delay solar array deployment and replan an already complex rendezvous.”It appears that although it achieved Earth orbit, Dragon is experiencing some kind of problem right now,” John Insprucker, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 product manager, said during a company webcast. “We’ll have to learn about the nature of what happened. According to procedure, we expect a press conference to be held a few hours from now. At that time, further info may be available.”A few minutes later, SpaceX founder and chief designer Elon Musk said in a tweet from company headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif., that three of four maneuvering rockets were being inhibited by the on-board avionics and that company flight controllers were “about to command inhibit override.”A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon supply ship loaded with more than a ton of supplies bound for the International Space Station climbs toward orbit after launch from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.(Credit:NASA TV)He then tweeted that solar wow power leveling array deploy was being held up until at least two thruster pods were successfully activated. The Dragon cargo ship can only function for about 15 hours on battery power alone, not long enough to carry out a successful space station rendezvous.But SpaceX flight controllers were able to get a second thruster pod back on line and shortly before noon ET, Musk tweeted that both solar panels had been successfully deployed.The Dragon cargo ship’s Falcon 9 rocket, also built by World Of Warcraft power leveling Space Exploration Technologies, roared to life at 10:10 a.m. ET and majestically climbed away from launch complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.Trailing a torrent of flame from its nine Merlin 1C engines, the 157-foot-tall rocket launched almost directly into the plane of the space station’s orbit, accelerating through low clouds on a trajectory paralleling the East Coast of the United States.During the first operational SpaceX resupply flight last October, one of the booster’s first stage engines suffered a combustion chamber rupture, prompting an early-but-safe shutdown. The other engines fired longer than planned to make up for the shortfall and the Dragon cargo ship was released into the intended orbit.This time around, all nine engines appeared to work normally and the first stage fell away on time about three minutes after liftoff. The second stage, powered by a single Merlin engine, then continued the climb to space.The nozzle of the Falcon 9's second stage Merlin engine glows as the rocket nears orbit.(Credit:NASA TV)Live television views from a camera mounted at the base of the second stage showed the engine nozzle glowing cherry red against the limb of the Earth as the rocket climbed toward orbit.The second stage appeared to operate normally and another television camera showed the Dragon capsule as it was released from its booster about nine minutes and 46 seconds after liftoff.The capsule’s two solar arrays were expected to deploy about two minutes later, but that ended up being delayed almost a full orbit.The Dragon spacecraft was released into an initially elliptical orbit with a high point of around 200 miles and a low point of around 120 miles. Assuming the thruster issue can be resolved to NASA’s satisfaction, the spacecraft should be able to execute a complex series of rendezvous rocket firings to catch up with the space station for a normal rendezvous.But flight controllers may have to replan a series of rendezvous rocket firings, which could affect how long it might take to catch up with the station.SpaceX Dragon’s quest to the space station (pictures) 1-2 of 20Scroll LeftScroll RightAt the moment of liftoff, the International Space Station was 253 miles above the Atlantic Ocean just east of New England. The flight plan called for the Dragon to pull up to within about 30 feet of the huge lab complex Saturday morning and then to stand by for capture.At that point, station commander Kevin Ford, working at a robotics work station in the multi-window Cupola compartment, planned to use the lab’s robot arm to grapple Dragon capsule around 6:30 a.m. Saturday.Related postsSpaceX overcomes thruster problems with cargo shipInside the SpaceX Dragon capsule (panorama)SpaceX supply ship prepped for Friday launch to stationCanada orbits suitcase-size camera to hunt asteroidsTrekkies conquer contest to name Pluto moons The astronauts typically handle berthing chores, carrying out complex multi-joint maneuvers to move the captured spacecraft to its docking port on the Earth-facing side of the station’s forward Harmony module.But this time around, ground controllers at the Johnson Space Center in Houston were expected to take over, sending commands to remotely operate the arm through berthing to demonstrate their ability to carry out complex arm procedures and to give the astronauts a bit of a break during a very busy day.The Dragon capsule is packed with some 2,300 pounds of equipment and provisions, including 178 pounds of crew supplies; 300 pounds of space station hardware, including replacement components for the lab’s carbon dioxide removal system; and more than 700 pounds of science gear, including a pair of Glacier freezers and experiment components.A spacewalk equipment handling fixture called a grapple bar is mounted in the Dragon capsule’s unpressurized trunk section. The station’s robot arm, again operated by flight controllers in Houston, will be used a few days after berthing to extract the grapple bar assembly and stow it on the station’s exterior for future use.Assuming a successful berthing, Ford and his crewmates plan to re-pack the capsule with 1.5 tons of no-longer needed gear, components that need refurbishment or failure analysis and experiment samples that are needed by scientists back on Earth.The return manifest includes 209 pounds of crew equipment; 1,455 pounds of science gear, including a Glacier freezer and cold bags loaded with experiment samples; and 884 pounds of space station hardware.The SpaceX Dragon capsule is the only space station cargo craft designed to bring cargo back to Earth, a critical capability that was lost when NASA’s space shuttle fleet was retired in 2011.The manned Russian Soyuz spacecraft that carry three-person crews to and from the space station can only bring back a few hundred pounds of cargo. All other station vehicles — unmanned Russian Progress supply ships and European and Japanese cargo craft — burn up during re-entry.

wow power levelingTwitter hit with $50M suit over anti-Semitic tweeter data

Twitter hit with $50M suit over anti-Semitic tweeter data
(Credit:Illustration by James Martin/CNET)The Union of Jewish French Students, UEJF, has doubled down in its battle with Twitter and said it filed a $50 million lawsuit against the social network yesterday. The cause of the suit? User data for anti-Semitic tweets. The fracas goes back to October when Twitter was awash in anti-Semitic French-language tweets tied to the hashtag “#unbonjuif” (“a good Jew”). This prompted the student union and other anti-racism groups to ask Twitter to remove both the tweets and the hashtag. The wow power leveling social network complied by deleting the tweets in France that it deemed racist. While deleting the tweets was part of UEJF’s goal, it also became curious about the users who were sending the anti-Semitic messages. So, UEJF sued Twitter in a civil case in November to get the identities of those users in France so they could then prosecute them under the country’s anti-hate speech laws. In January a French court ruled that the social network had to comply. At the time, Twitter said, “we are currently reviewing the court’s decision.” The court told the social network that it had 15 days to give up the names or file an appeal, but UEJF said the social network didn’t follow the court’s rules. “Twitter is playing the indifference card and does not respect the ruling,” UEJF President Jonathan Hayoun said, according to the Global News Service of the Jewish People. “They have resolved to protect the anonymity of the authors of these tweets and have made themselves accomplices to racists and anti-Semites.”Related stories’Syrian Electronic Army’ hacks a BBC Twitter accountTwitter turns seven, releases greatest-hits videoTalk on Twitter corresponds to higher TV ratingsU.K. budget leaked on Twitter as government restates 4G vowTwitter scores a patent for Twitter The new lawsuit is regarding Twitter not filing in the certain time frame. According to the Global News Service of the Jewish People, it is a criminal suit that was filed with a Paris correctional tribunal. The UEJF has said that if it wins the suit, it will use the damages award to preserve the memory of the Holocaust. For its part, Twitter said that it has followed the rules and had no intention to delay in its filing. “We’ve been in continual discussions with UEJF,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNET. “As yesterday’s new filing shows, they are sadly more interested in grandstanding than taking the proper international legal path for this data. We are filing our appeal today, and would have filed it sooner if not for safe wow power leveling UEJF’s intentional delay in processing the court’s decision.” CNET contacted UEJF for more information. We’ll update the story when we hear back.

Nvidia CEO unveils next two gens of Tegra, dubbed Logan, Parker
Nvidia discussed its Tegra roadmap during its developers' conference.(Credit:Screenshot by Shara Tibken/CNET) Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang today talked up the chipmaker’s next two generations of mobile chip, saying the Tegra chip line will show a 100-times improvement in strength from the first chip to the fifth. Related stories:Nvidia unveils first mobile processor with integrated LTENvidia’s CEO talks Shield with CNET: Yes, there will be future modelsTegra 4, gaming dominate Nvidia’s 2013 plansWhat does a great Windows 8 gaming laptop need? The current Tegra chip, Tegra 4, hit the market earlier this year. The next generation, coming later this year, is code-named Logan, while the fifth generation of Tegra is code-named Parker, Huang said at the company’s GPU developers’ conference. Logan will incorporate Nvidia’s Kepler GPU, which currently is dominating the discrete graphics market. It also will include CUDA, Nvidia’s programming model for GPUs that allows users to do many tasks at once. Parker, meanwhile, will be Nvidia’s first processor from its Project Denver push. That includes full 64-bit capabilities, making it more attractive for use as the brains in one’s computer or in a server or supercomputer. Nvidia first started talking about Project Denver during the Consumer Electronics Show in 2011, but it hadn’t provided many updates since that time. Parker also will incorporate a Maxwell GPU, Nvidia’s next-generation architecture. “In five years time, we’ll increase Tegra by 100 times,” Huang said. “Moore’s Law would suggest an eightfold increase.” Huang also unveiled Kayla, a development platform for CUDA and OpenGL, an API for rendering 2D and 3D computer graphics. Kayla is powered by the Tegra 3 quad-core ARM processor and wow power leveling eu a next-generation Kepler GPU. It will be available this spring from ARM-based PC providers. Nvidia today wow power leveling professions is hosting its GPU Technology developers conference. Traditionally known for making graphics processing units found in computers and game consoles, Nvidia has been counting on its Tegra mobile chips to help offset weakness in its core PC market. So far, it hasn’t been enough. Its presence in smartphones has been minimal, and the bulk of Tegra sales are for a couple of tablets, the Google Nexus 7 and the Microsoft Surface. In addition, Nvidia now is facing more competition in the tablet market. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talks about the company's GPU roadmap. (Credit:Nvidia) Nvidia officially unveiled Tegra 4 at CES in January, while it announced the Tegra 4i the next month. Tegra 4i integrates the app processor and 4G LTE on the same piece of silicon, a step Nvidia hopes will help it gain better traction with smartphones. Meanwhile, Huang today also unveiled Nvidia’s next-generation GPUs. The Kepler architecture, which is currently shipping in devices, will be followed by Maxwell in 2014. That architecture has a unified virtual memory that makes it possible for GPU operations to read and see the CPU memory, and vice versa. All memory is visible to all processors. That’s going to make it easier for developers, Huang said. Volta comes next. That GPU will have a new technology called stacked memory. Nvidia said it will solve one of the biggest challenges today, which is memory bandwidth for GPU. Volta will take a leap forward and will stack the DRAM on the same silicon substrate. It will carry DRAMs stacked on top of one another. “I love that name, because it would suggest that Volta will be even more energy-efficient,” Huang said. Huang also introduced the GRID “Visual Computing Appliance,” which is designed to let businesses deliver ultrafast GPU performance to any Windows, Linux, or Mac client on their network. GRID VCA enables businesses to house graphics-intensive tasks in the cloud. Nvidia noted that it provides “enormous flexibility to small- and medium-size businesses with limited IT infrastructures.” Employees are able to create virtual machines with dedicated, high-performance GPUs.

wow power leveling Slamming used asteroid into moon ‘makes sense’Buzz Aldrin has a plan to get us to Mars by 2035As it turns out

One (alleged) cause of climate change you’ve never heard of
Did messing with the surface of the moon mess with Earth's climate?(Credit:NASA)Last week, the latest IPCC report on climate change said it’s “extremely likely” that humans are to blame for our warming planet, wow power leveling which has been playing host to increasingly freaky and extreme weather in recent years.The evidence in the report is convincing, but doesn’t answer the next logical question: specifically, which humans are to blame?Before you go shouting about coal-fired power plants and the Americans and the Indians and the Chinese, let me clarify the question even further. Who are the actual individual people that set into motion a chain of events that has led to melting permafrost, epic hurricanes, and the past really disturbing year here in the Rocky Mountains, where we’ve been plagued by wildfires followed by floods.I mean seriously, WTF?! Who’s responsible here? I want names!It wasn’t until this weekend, when I was reporting on one NASA scientist’s notion to slam a used asteroid into the moon after we’re done studying it, that my memory was jogged and I realized that I may be one of the few people able to provide such a list.The Koyukuk River, viewed from Huslia.(Credit:University of Alaska-Fairbanks)Ten years ago, I was living in a tiny village on Alaska’s Yukon River. In May of 2003, I was invited to a workshop in a nearby village named Huslia that sits just below the Arctic Circle on the winding Koyukuk River. In attendance were climate scientists from the University of Alaska, as well as local Native Alaskan elders and youth. The idea was to record the traditional knowledge and observations of elders and other locals with regards to the changing weather patterns over the decades.Much of what we heard that day falls in line with scientific evidence and other observations reported around the world, except one thing.A lunar cause?”It all started when they put a man on the moon,” declared one of the elders at the workshop when the dialogue turned to possible causes of climate change.Other elders echoed this belief that climate change was somehow linked to the 1969 moon landing and subsequent Apollo missions to our satellite without the slightest bit of irony or humor. I remember writing the word “moon???” in my notes and then looking up and around the room at the nodding heads of other local elders and the bewildered looks on the faces of the other outsiders and academics in the room. Related storiesGuess what? Global warming is real, and it’s our faultNASA scientist: Slamming used asteroid into moon ‘makes sense’Buzz Aldrin has a plan to get us to Mars by 2035As it turns out, a respected leader had prophesied back in the late 1960s and early 1970s that major social and environmental change would be World Of Warcraft power leveling one of the direct consequences of humans setting foot on the moon. Before you think about snickering, please consider that there would have been little contemporary climate science knowledge available at that time in a remote Arctic subsistence village, and that such a prediction actually makes a lot of sense within the context of the traditional Koyukon (a general term for the Athabascan Native Alaskans of the area) worldview. Not to mention the fact that, well, dude was right — at least in terms of what happened in the decades that followed the Apollo program. Permafrost is melting, animal migration patterns are changing, and summer wildfires are a major nuisance these days in Alaska. One elder I interviewed during my time there lamented the fact he “hasn’t seen a 90 below day in decades.” (These are the kind of things that people who are tougher than you or I are often heard to say — a toughness driven home by the unmistakable tone of melancholy that accompanied the statement.)So, to answer the question scrawled in my notes that day, why the moon?Here’s how some of the academics that were also in attendance the same day as myself would later explain the belief in an Apollo Mission-Climate Change link in the journal Ecology and Society:The moon has considerable power and significance in Koyukon cosmology. Tampering with the moon in the form of lunar space landings was disrespectful and inappropriate and could only lead to negative repercussions… Indeed, the moon landings have a symbolic role, too, in relation to humankind’s pursuit of technological and other forms of progress without careful consideration of the consequences: landing on the moon was a boastful and arrogant thing to do to another spirit.The authors, some of whom were raised in or around Huslia, also suggest that bringing up the supposed link between the moon landing and climate change could have served as a sort of test for the visiting researchers and outsiders like myself. It may not have been meant to be taken completely at face value, but instead as a way of gauging the open-mindedness of the visitors to the differences between the Native worldview and more scientific explanations. Interestingly, it seems that with the latest IPCC report’s strong assertion that humans have contributed to climate change, science could actually be catching up to the traditional knowledge that residents of Huslia have held for decades. Only difference is that the elders can point to specific human contributors. You probably know two of them. Their names are Neil and Buzz.

NSA surveillance retrospective: AT&T, Verizon never denied it
AT&T facility at 611 Folsom Street in San Francisco, which a former technician revealed included a "splitter cabinet" that diverted Internet traffic to the National Security Agency. The company never denied it.(Credit:Declan McCullagh)When Internet companies were recently accused of allowing the National Security Agency direct access to their servers, they strenuously denied it. But when AT&T was accused of allowing the NSA direct access to its network, it did the opposite.Mark Klein, who worked as an AT&T technician for over 22 years, wow power leveling eu disclosed in 2006 (PDF) that he met with NSA officials and witnessed domestic Internet traffic being “diverted” through a “splitter cabinet” to secure room 641A in one of the company’s San Francisco facilities. Only NSA-cleared technicians were allowed to work on equipment in the SG3 secure room, Klein said, adding that he was told similar taps existed in other major cities.AT&T never denied it. Instead, in defending a lawsuit brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the company sought to downplay the reasons NSA-controlled hardware existed on its network.In May 2006, CNET obtained an improperly redacted PDF document (PDF) that AT&T’s lawyers filed in that lawsuit. The redacted portions argued: “Although the plaintiffs ominously refer to the equipment as the ‘Surveillance Configuration,’ the same physical equipment could be utilized exclusively for other surveillance in full compliance with” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.CNET asked AT&T at the time: “Have you turned over information or opened up your networks to the NSA without being compelled by law?” A company spokesman would not answer the question.A few months later, Justice Department attorneys told a federal judge (PDF) that AT&T can “neither confirm nor deny whether it was indeed cooperating safe wow power leveling with the NSA.” (Credit:EFF)That’s the opposite of what Internet companies including Microsoft, Google, and Facebook have done since initial reports — which have since been shown to be incorrect — in The Washington Post and Guardian newspapers alleged the NSA had “direct access” to the companies’ servers. (The Post’s editorial board yesterday acknowledged there was nothing untoward going on.)Not only have the tech companies denied allegations of NSA access, they’ve done so at great length.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg provided a categorical denial, including saying that “we have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk.” Google CEO Larry Page said flatly that “the U.S. government does not have direct access or a ‘back door’ to the information stored in our data centers.” Apple, Yahoo, and Microsoft have made similar statements.Google’s chief legal officer, David Drummond, gave lengthy interviews yesterday to PBS Newshour and Fox News describing how the company complies with legal orders. CNET was the first to disclose last month that Google is currently fighting the FBI over the legality of secret “national security letters” in court in New York and San Francisco.In addition, it turned out that the so-called PRISM program is not the name of a spy program after all: It’s the name of an internal NSA software tool that’s used to collate data collected through a legal process created by Congress in 2008 and last renewed in December 2012. That “702″ process, overseen by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the Justice Department, and Congress, requires companies to comply with orders for information on non-U.S. citizens in investigations related to “prevention of terrorism, hostile cyberactivities, or nuclear proliferation.”That seems to be why Sen. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat who chairs a Senate privacy subcommittee and has a reputation as an outspoken privacy advocate and critic of Silicon Valley companies, told CBS affiliate WCCO that he had been briefed on the 702 process and has no privacy concerns. “I can assure you that this isn’t about spying on the American people,” Franken said.The Internet companies have asked Attorney General Eric Holder to lift secrecy restrictions on 702 orders so they can clear their name, in part by disclosing how many records they have turned over in response to legal process. Google sent an open letter to Holder yesterday, and Facebook and Microsoft have also asked the Justice Department for permission to divulge summary statistics. Holder has not responded.By contrast, AT&T never asked for permission to disclose NSA surveillance. Instead, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Carl Nichols said during a 2006 court hearing in San Francisco that a discussion of all the “facts” about NSA surveillance could only happen in a classified setting. The Bush administration asked that the case be tossed out on “state secrets” grounds.James Bamford, in his 2008 book “The Shadow Factory,” described AT&T’s participation in Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program as:For decades, AT&T and much of the rest of the telecommunications industry have had a very secret, very cozy relationship with the NSA… [NSA Director Michael Hayden] succeeded in gaining the secret cooperation of nearly all of the nation’s telecommunications giants for his warrantless eavesdropping program. Within a year, engineers were busy installing highly secret, heavily locked rooms in key AT&T switches, among them Bridgeton, New York City, and the company’s major West Coast central office in San Francisco. From then on the data — including both address information and content — would flow through the PacketScopes directly to the NSA.Verizon, too, never sent an open letter to the federal government asking that a gag order be lifted. The company secretly hands the NSA daily logs of all customers’ phone calls, according to a court order that the Guardian published last week. When USA Today disclosed this program in 2006, saying that NSA was vacuuming up phone logs, Verizon didn’t deny it. Instead, a spokesman told the newspaper only that “we do not comment on national security matters.”The Bush administration confirmed the existence of warrantless wiretapping with the help of telecommunications companies when it asked Congress to grant retroactive immunity to the providers that participated. Sen. John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), the Intelligence Committee’s chairman at the time, said the providers “should not be penalized for their willingness to heed the call during a national emergency” — despite the fact that any “emergency” by then would have lasted over six years.A 2009 book on the NSA titled “The Secret Sentry,” by Matthew Aid, suggested that executives at AT&T and the other telecommunications providers knew they were violating criminal wiretapping laws. Aid wrote:As one NSA retiree put it, “why then would they need immunity if what they did was legal?” After reading a spate of newspaper reports on the subject, a disgusted NSA official said, “They keep trying to give the telecoms a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card. That tells me there is something illegal about what the companies have been doing. [The immunity deal] stinks to high heaven.”Retroactive immunity — which was supported by then-Sen. Barack Obama despite his earlier statements to CNET to the contrary — finally became law in July 2008.Updated at 3 p.m. PTwith book excerpts.

Twitter triumphs in spam lawsuit settlement
Twitter has won wow power leveling professions a battle in its war against spam. The microblogging service settled a lawsuit on Tuesday with marketing software company TweetAdder, in which the agreement was clearly in favor of Twitter. The terms of the settlement were filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. Under the terms of the settlement, the owners and employees of TweetAdder agree not to take part in “creating, developing, manufacturing, adapting, modifying, making available, trafficking in, using, disclosing, selling, licensing, distributing (with or without monetary charge), wow power leveling updating, providing costumer support for, or offering for use, sale, license, or distribution (with or without monetary charge), any software or technology designed for use in connection with Twitter’s service, the use of which would violate Twitter’s Terms of Service.” Basically, several versions of TweetAdder can no longer be used with Twitter. And, if they are, TweetAdder faces steep fines. Twitter first filed the suit against TweetAdder and five other tool providers last April in San Francisco’s federal court. Besides TweetAdder, Twitter went after TweetAttacks, TweetBuddy, Troption, and Justinlover. According to AllThingsD, TweetBuddy also settled with Twitter last year, but litigation with the other companies is still ongoing.Related storiesTwitter amps up lists feature, lets users create 1,000 lists Gmail tackles inbox clutter with tabsTwitter too complicated for newcomers, says CEOTwitter supercharges tweeting on iOS and AndroidDish Network dishes out social app for its subscribers By working to shut down these tool providers, Twitter hopes to stop other spammers from using those tools. The tools function by providing downloadable software (usually for a fee) that lets users easily tweet posts and direct messages automatically. “Twitter is committed to aggressively protecting its users from spam, and we use all tools at our disposal to shut down spammers, including through the legal action filed last year,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNET. “We are pleased with today’s settlement; we’ve succeeded in getting the TweetAdder defendants to respect our Terms of Service — now and in the future. The stipulated order filed today protects our users and should serve as an example to other parties that try to use the Twitter platform for spam.” As a result of the settlement, TweetAdder said version 3.0 and all prior versions of its service will no longer be available or supported as of April 26, 2013. “Twitter and TweetAdder have mutually agreed upon a final confidential settlement of their legal dispute regarding TweetAdder Software,” a TweetAdder spokesperson told CNET in an e-mail. “All current TweetAdder users will be required to upgrade to the new version of TweetAdder 4.0 by May 24, 2013. As a reminder, TweetAdder users must comply with Twitter’s Terms of Service.” Twitter isn’t the first tech company to go after spammers in court. Facebook and the Washington state Attorney General filed suits last year against alleged “likejackers” that trick users into “liking” sites, and Google has also filed suits against spammers’ online pharmacy scams and work-from-home scams.

New digital comics meet old storytelling tricks
Artwork from Batman '66 will show transitions similar to the classic 1960s Batman TV show.(Credit:DC Entertainment)The high camp era of the 1960′s Batman TV show, and video game-influenced “choose-your-own-adventure” stories, will come to DC Entertainment’s digital comics this summer with new digital storytelling techniques to draw in readers.At a “Future of Storytelling” event that DC Entertainment parent company Warner Brothers held on Tuesday in New York City, DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson said that the new comics will appeal to fans of the classic Batman TV show and the current series of Batman: Arkham video games.”These are our latest steps in a methodical digital strategy,” she told CNET in a phone conversation Tuesday morning. “Three years ago we were essentially nowhere, with no digital business to speak of.”"DC2″ is what the company is calling the new digital comics. They different from its standard same-day digital and print publishing, and its digital-first publishing, in that the DC2 line has added technological tricks to enhance the story. The first DC2 book will be the previously-announced digital-first title Batman ’66, which features the first time ever that the campy Adam West and Burt Ward Batman series from the mid-1960s will appear in comics.How DC makes its comics digital (pictures) 1-2 of 6Scroll LeftScroll RightBatman ’66 will showcase dynamically changing artwork, so that as you tap or click your way through the story, the in-panel artwork will change. In one panel you’ll see Batman squaring off against the Riddler on a bi-plane, for example, and tapping will show you the art changing as the Riddler shoots Batman with a cloud of gas. Normally, the story would move on to the next panel. Batman ’66 will use the famous oversized action sound effects such as “pow,” “biff,” and “bam,” that helped define the show.”The actual conceit of the show is something we can pull off with the technology,” said DC Entertainment’s co-Publisher Jim Lee. “As we started thinking about the next step in our evolutionary digital program, we really wanted the right [intellectual property] to match to the technology.”Related stories:Children’s cancer wing transformed into superhero ward’Life’: A comic book for the blindGrant Morrison: Google Glass is ‘half-fish, half-man’ (Q&A)Comics Web site Comics Alliance to relaunch?Dark Horse dangles 50 free digital comicsWhen the comic is reprinted in physical format, it will contain the same story but obviously without the visual effects, Lee explained.The second title, also a digital-first book, is called Batman: Arkham Origins and is based on the hit Batman: Arkham video game series. Published under the rubric of DC2 Multiverse, Arkham Origins will let readers choose different characters to follow through the story. Who you choose to follow, and which story paths you follow them down, will change your reading experience.You also will be able to add your own soundtrack to Arkham Origins, although it wasn’t clear at the time of publishing how that will work.Where do you get those wonderful toys? (pictures) 1-2 of 7Scroll LeftScroll RightThe title “multiverse” carries a lot of weight in DC Comics lore, as the company’s superheroes have interacted with multiple universes, featuring multiple Earths and therefore multiple versions of themselves. Here, though, the name refers to different paths that you can take the lead characters down.The storytelling structure is not too dissimilar from how a video game is plotted, said Lee. “Same toolset as DC2 but with sounds and choices. Based on your fast wow power leveling choices, you’ll unlock different stories in the story tree.”Digital comics have proven to be big business for DC. The company reports that digital sales have increased 125 percent from 2011 to 2012, while print sales were “up by double-digits,” Nelson said, during the same period. This means, she said, that people buying digital comics are not being cannibalized from print comics sales, a key concern of comics retailers.She also said that digital sales during the first quarter of 2013 were 35 percent higher than sales during the same period of 2012, and that 30 percent of DC’s digital comics readers are new to comics. Ten percent of the digital comics readers are from outside the United States.DC2 Multiverse: Batman: Arkham Origins updates the choose-your-own-adventure storytelling format for digital comics.(Credit:DC Entertainment)While she wouldn’t discuss numbers specific to books, making it hard to tell how DC’s top sellers are doing in comparison to their midlist titles, she did say that the company sells more than one million digital comics every month.The success has not been without controversy. While print comics retailers have been more or less mollified by the success of DC and its competitors in not leeching print sales, cheap wow power leveling as happened with music, the comics creators have had a bone to pick with DC over differences in royalties paid for the same work done digitally versus in print.Lee said that the company is working on the problem, but gave no specifics in a non-committal answer. “When we launched our digital initiative, all our projects were licensed IP. The digital space was growing and a new space for us,” he said. “We decided to start with a different compensation package. It’s something we are adjusting in time.”Back in 2011, just before the company launched its same-day publishing initiative for print and digital, Lee told CNET that the difference in sales between print and digital was like the difference between a sheet of paper and a string of dental floss. That’s changed, he said. “Now it’s like a strip of Wrigley’s gum. It’s wider and broader,” he said. “We’re really happy with the growth of the digital business, because it’s increasing the overall size of the pie.”

Two-factor authentication: What you need to know (FAQ)
Twitter announced on Wednesday that they’ve started supporting two-factor authentication, joining a growing list of major Web services that offer the more secure login method.Twitter’s advice to media after high-profile hacksTwo-factor authentication, or 2FA as it’s commonly abbreviated, adds an extra step to your basic login procedure. Without 2FA, you enter in your username and password, and then you’re done. The password is your single factor of authentication. The second factor makes your account more secure, in theory.”Twitter made the decision to use SMS [to deliver its second factor] because it makes sense from their position,” said Jon Oberheide, a two-factor authentication expert and co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Duo Security, which uses apps to prove identity. “[SMS is] universal in some respects, all you need is a mobile phone.”But Twitter has faced some backlash, he said, because many of the highest-profile Twitter hacks have been against corporate Twitter accounts.”Two-factor authentication does help, but Twitter is a high-value target and it needs to be protected like one,” said Jim Fenton, Chief Security Officer at OneID, an enterprise password replacement World Of Warcraft power leveling system. Here’s a rundown of what two-factor authentication is, how it can work for you, and what its limitations are.What is two-factor authentication?Two-factor authentication adds wow power leveling eu a second level of authentication to an account login. When you have to enter only your username and one password, that’s considered a single-factor authentication. 2FA requires the user to have two out of three types of credentials before being able to access an account. The three types are:Something you know, such as a Personal Identification Number (PIN), password, or a patternSomething you have, such as an ATM card, phone, or fobSomething you are, such as a biometric like a fingerprint or voice printHow old is two-factor authentication?Older than life itself. Okay, not really. But 2FA is nothing new. When you use your credit card and you must enter in your zip code to confirm a charge, that’s an example of 2FA in action. You must provide a physical factor, the card, and a knowledge factor, the zip code.Related stories:Twitter attempts to beef up securityKim Dotcom threatens to sue Twitter, others over patentGoogle security: You (still) are the weakest linkTwitter to roll out new password security control?How to enable two-factor authentication on popular sitesBut just because it’s been around for a long time doesn’t mean that it’s easy to set up or easy to use.Wait, it’s hard to use?It definitely adds an extra step to your login process, and depending on how the account vendor, such as Twitter, has implemented it, it can be a minor inconvenience or a major pain. Much also depends on your patience and your willingness to spend the extra time to ensure a higher level of security. Fenton said that while two-factor authentication makes it harder to log in, it’s not “hugely” so. “An attacker might be able to collect a cookie or an OAuth token from a Web site and essentially take over their session,” he said. “So, 2FA is a good thing, but it does make the user experience more complicated… It’s done when you’re logging into an account on your device for the first time, for example.”Will two-factor authentication protect me?Well, that’s a loaded question when it comes to security. It’s true that two-factor authentication is not impervious to hackers. One of the most high-profile cases of a compromised two-factor system occurred in 2011, when security company RSA revealed that its SecurID authentication tokens had been hacked.Fenton explained both sides of the effectiveness problem. “The thing that concerns me as a security guy is that people don’t look at what the cause of the threats might be. 2FA mitigates the problems, but there are a lot of awful attacks can run on 2FA.”At the same time, he said, two-factor offered more protection than logging in without it. “When you make an attack harder, you’re disabling a certain subset of the hacker community,” he said.How is 2FA vulnerable to hackers?To hack two-factor authentication, the bad guys must acquire either the physical component of the login, or must gain access to the cookies or tokens placed on the device by the authentication mechanism. This can happen in several ways, including phishing attack, malware, or credit card-reader skimming. There is a another way, however: account recovery.An RSA SecurID key fob.(Credit:Via Wikimedia Commons)If you remember what happened to journalist Mat Honan, his accounts were compromised by leveraging the “account recovery” feature. Account recovery resets your current password and e-mails you a temporary one so that you can log in again.”One of the biggest problems that’s not adequately solved is recovery,” said Oberheide.Account recovery works as a tool for breaking two-factor authentication because it “bypasses” 2FA entirely, Fenton explained. “Just after [the Honan story was published], I created a Google account, created 2FA on it, then pretended to lose my data.”Fenton continued: “Account recovery took some extra time, but three days later I got an email helpfully explaining that 2FA had been disabled on my account.” After that, he was able to log back in to the account without 2FA.Account recovery is not a problem without a solution, though. Or at least, solutions are being worked on. “I see biometrics as an interesting way to solve the recovery problem,” said Oberheide. “If I lost my phone, it would take forever to go through each account and recover them. If there’s a very strong biometric recovery method, a passcode of my choosing and a voice challenge or something like that, it becomes a very reasonable and usable recovery mechanism.”(Credit:CNET)Basically, he’s suggesting using one form of two-factor for logging in, and a second, different two-factor combo for recovery.What’s next for 2FA?As two-factor authentication becomes more commonplace, it’s more likely that attacks will be more successful against it. That’s the nature of computer security. But by virtue of being more commonplace, it will become easier to use, too.Oberheide said that many of his customers start off think that implementing 2FA will be expensive or hard to use, but often find that their experience with it is the opposite. “I think that will come faster in the consumer space because they’re not dealing with all this cruft from the legacy of 2FA from the 80s,” he said. But, he noted, that older systems can have a hard time getting 2FA going. “A few months ago we published the bypass of Google’s two-factor scheme,” he explained. “It’s not a ding against two-factor in general, but against Google’s complicated legacy system.”Fenton noted that increased adoption could create opportunities to refine the technology. “Should we be planning now on designing something that can scale to large numbers of sites? It seems that 2FA is really exploding right now,” he said.Despite its problems, Oberheide sounded an optimistic tone for two-factor authentication. “If we can increase the security and usability of 2FA at the same time, that’s a Holy Grail that’s often difficult to achieve,” he said.
