According to the [Daily Mirror](http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology-science/technology/charlie-hebdo-isis-flag-death-4946579), a number of official websites connected to French municipalities were hacked at the end of last week to coincide with the Charlie Hebdo massacre and the hostage taking at the Jewish supermarket. The newspaper reported that the home screens of websites belonging to the towns of Jouy-le-Moutier, Piscop, Goussainville, Val D'Oise and Ezanville (all surrounding Paris) were defaced with a Jihadist ISIS black flag and a message which translates as "The Islamic State Stay Inchallah, Free Palestine, Death to France, Death to Charlie." The hacker concerned declares himself to be an Algerian using the name …

According to a new survey of more than 2,000 British workers, 38% of them insisted they were 'content' with their career progression. When it comes to the tech sector, 39% were happy with their career ladder climbing which, according to Randstad Technologies which carried out the research, makes them happier than most. The truth is that while tech professionals are happier than average with their career progression, they are not as happy as you might expect given that 'IT and Telecommunications' (bolstered by demand from a 4G licensing boom) is the sector that has expanded the most during the last …

Almost exactly a year ago I was writing about [the development of Google Glass](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/pc-hardware/monitors-displays-and-video-cards/news/426788/no-google-glass-for-most-developers-until-2014) here at DaniWeb. In the meantime, the project has turned into a reality and [actual product has got into the hands of reviewers](http://www.pcpro.co.uk/features/380401/before-iwatch-and-google-glass-wearable-computing-milestones-and-failures/2) and some lucky users with $1,500 to spare. This would all be much more exciting for me were it not for the fact that my vision is severely impaired thanks to suffering from Wet Macular Degeneration in one eye (hence the patch) and the other being very lazy indeed. I get by with the use of a contact lens and high magnification reading …

According to new research from Randstad Technologies, a specialist recruitment company, less than half of those working in the IT and technology industry in the United Kingdom are happy with their levels of pay. By contrast, however, 60% appear to be quite happy with their jobs despite of this. Interestingly, that 60% figure is lower than the national average of 61% across the entire UK workforce whereas the number happy with their pay (47%) is higher than the national average (43%). If you want to be really happy, if you believe the statistics, then perhaps you should quit tech and …

I am pleased to report that DaniWeb, based about half an hour outside Manhattan in Uniondale, Long Island, New York has survived Hurricane Sandy. There were no downtimes or outages, and all staff are OK. Not everyone in the tech space has been so lucky it would seem. ![sandymap](/attachments/small/0/sandymap.jpg "align-right") Four big online names have suffered outages after Datagram, a web hosting and data center outfit based in Manhattan, lost power. Buzzfeed, Gawker, Gizmodo and The Huffington Post were amongst the sites impacted by the power loss after Datagram experienced flooding to the basement of its building last night. Intermap, …

Following on from the news earlier this month that [LinkedIn had suffered a major security breach](http://www.daniweb.com/internet-marketing/social-media-and-web-communities/news/425019/linkedin-confirms-six-million-password-hack-check-if-yours-is-one-of-them) involving the compromise of at least six million user passwords, and then dating site [eHarmony apparently falling victim to the same password hacking compromise](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/425118/dating-disaster-eharmony-confirms-passwords-exposed-by-linkedin-hacker), the latest to be hit would appear to be the UK-based consumer technology news and magazine site TechRadar. ![dweb-techradar](/attachments/small/0/dweb-techradar.jpg "align-right") Late last night the site, owned by magazine giants Future Publishing and which gets in excess of seven million visitors from around the world each month, made the announcement on Twitter and the website forums were closed while an investigation …

Ah, sunny California. Brent Fouch's day starts like many other business owners'. He gets to work, drinks his coffee and slips on a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset. Flipping on his PC, Brent moves the cursor around his computer, opens programs and goes about his day - all with the power of brain waves. Oh, wait - [I]you[/I] don't do that? Well, you could. No, really. And Brent really does do that every day. See, he's the President of Jedi Mind, Inc. - they develop software that links your brain to your PC; it's available now (yes, …

Hi everyone, My name is Jeramy and I am new to the forums. I did a search and tried to find a similar post and one came up with certain search terms - however I forgot which it was =( I'm an independent contractor and I setup HDTVs, PCs, networks, etc. I just purchased an 8GB drive that I plan on using as my technician tool. I've already got the PortapleApps setup pretty well on it, but I was wondering if there are tools out there I am missing? It'd be great to carry a suite of everything I could …

OK, so Apple has done it again. Whipped the technology and consumer media up into a feeding frenzy that is. But has it delivered with the truly magical and revolutionary product that was promised? Er, no dude, not by a long shot and here (in no particular order) are 15 reasons why the iPad is not a game-changer. [LIST=1] [*]According to Steve Jobs the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4219.html"]netbook concept[/URL] has been a fail and the iPad does everything better. Apart, that is, from doing more than one thing at once. Users obviously won't want to have a Twitter app running on that large …

OK, I'm not sure what's going on in the minds of the geniuses over at Yahoo but just today they removed the Linux/Open Source link under News/Tech is gone. Its replacement? Social Media. Thanks Yahoo. That's really clever. NOT! In the realm of things dumb, that takes second place right under iPad early adopters. But that's OK. We still have [URL="http://lxer.com"]lxer.com[/URL], [URL="http://linuxtoday.com"]linuxtoday.com[/URL] and [URL="http://lwn.net"]lwn.net[/URL] where we can get our news. Thanks Yahoo, you helped us. Yes, helped us. You've helped those who're looking for legitimate Linux/Open Source news and not just your rollups of other site's articles and postings. But, …

OK, it is very nearly Xmas now which means, if your household is anything like mine, lots of new tech toys to play with. So I'm starting a thread where you can post both what you are hoping to get and then, after Santa has slid down your chimney with his bulging sack, some words about the best bit of tech kit you actually got. I asked for a Pure Vl-61060 Sirocco 150 sound system and know I got it because I happened to answer the door when the delivery man dropped it off yesterday. A full review will follow …

What can your IT department learn from Microsoft's latest advertising bungles? Plenty. When the company released its "Mojave Experiment" ads (which I'd link to but the site forces you to install Silverlight to view them), the premise was rather sad. It seemed to suggest that at least one of the company's flagship products is so maligned that its existence had to be hidden to get a viewer's attention. In these advertisements, "unsuspecting computer users" are led to believe they're seeing a new operating system called "Mojave." After they claim to like it, they're informed it's actually Windows Vista. Many displays …

Kind of a quiet day in the technology stocks world, which might be considered good news considering the drubbing the sector has taken this week. Sun Microsystems was in the news, signing off on a Solaris 10 distribution agreement with Dell to make the Solaris Operating System and Solaris support services available directly to customers for most, but not all, Dell PowerEdge servers. The multi-year distribution agreement was announced live from Oracle OpenWorld, where Sun President and CEO, Jonathan Schwartz and Dell Chairman and CEO, Michael Dell, are keynote speakers. That should lead to a bum up in Sun’s and …

Is it just me, or is there a rather severe dearth of knowledgeable help at technology stores? I don't think I've ever seen a larger number of know-nothing, computer tech wannabes working at stores where technology products are sold. And God forbid you should go to an office supply store to buy anything computer related; in addition to substandard help, you'll almost always pay too much (I think these office supply stores assume that, if you're enough of a novice to be shopping for computer stuff at a store that specializes in selling pencils, manilla folders and paper clips, you …
