What do you think about when the term "memory device" gets tossed around? Kingston DRAM and Corsair’s 16GB DDR3/1600 Vengeance kit in the 2011 Dream Machine pops into our head. Now, sadly, we're going to have pictures of Bill Cosby's wrinkled, funny face dancing around in our skulls whenever memory springs to mind. Curse you, NC State researchers! A team from the University created a new type of memory designed to work in soggy situations, and the chip's reminiscent of everybody's favorite animal-based desert.
Google jumped on the bug bounty bandwagon in January. So impressed it is with the results of that bug bounty program, which offers a monetary reward to anyone who identifies bugs in its Chrome browser, that it has decided to implement a similar scheme for its web properties, including the search engine, Youtube, Blogger and Orkut. However, Google client applications (e.g. Android, Picasa, Google Desktop, etc) are not covered.
“Today, we are announcing an experimental new vulnerability reward program that applies to Google web properties. We already enjoy working with an array of researchers to improve Google security, and some individuals who have provided high caliber reports are listed on our credits page,” the company announced in a blog post.
