"A Dark Day For Zionism" As Armed Israeli Forces Evict Hundreds of Illegal Jewish Settlers In West Bank

"Amona is the largest of about 100 unauthorized outposts erected in the West Bank without permission but generally tolerated by the Israeli government. Israel's Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that Amona was built on private Palestinian land and must be demolished. It set Feb. 8 as the final date for it to be destroyed.

The woes of Windows 10

It used to be that only free software came with advertising; users paid a fee, if they chose to do so, to get the software free of advertising. Microsoft charges top dollar for Windows 10 ($120 or $200, depending on the edition) and now wants to bombard users with sales pitches to boot—without so much as by your leave, let alone the option to turn the nuisance off. Despite their idiosyncrasies, Macintosh and Linux have never looked so attractive.

The Left Is Self-Destructing

The mindlessness is unbearable. Amnesty International tells us that we must “fight the Muslim ban” because Trump’s bigotry is wrecking lives. Anthony Dimaggio at CounterPunch says Trump should be impeached because his Islamophobia is a threat to the Constitution. This is not to single out these two as the mindlessness is everywhere among those whose worldview is defined by Identity Politics.

Chrome's next release will make DRM mandatory

With Chrome 57, the next major Chrome release, Google will disable the plugin settings page chrome://plugins. That means anyone who wants to disable any built-in plugins, including the DRM decryption module called Widevine, can no longer do so.

It’s likely the vast majority of Chrome users just leave the Widevine decryption setting as is. For those who want to disable it, however, it’s an important setting and one that shouldn’t be removed so easily.

As Cory Doctorow over at Boing Boing points out, a component like Widevine is not immune to security flaws. However, security issues discovered in DRM schemes are harder to publicize due to the legal restraints put in place to discourage their disclosure. That means security issues can exist for months or years without the public finding out. Because of that, some users want to disable Widevine and do without DRM-laden video streaming services on their PCs.

Ohio bloke accused of torching own home after his pacemaker rats him out to cops

Our snark aside, this was the first time the cops had used pacemaker data in this way. The case raises some interesting new lines of inquiry for all police forces probing alleged crimes by people with the life-giving gadgets. (How exactly the search warrant in this case was executed, we're in the process of figuring out.)

Warren Buffet cashes in on Trump success despite backing Clinton in the White House race

BILLIONAIRE investor Warren Buffet snapped up shares worth £9.5 billion after Donald Trump’s election win despite backing Hillary Clinton in the race or the White House.

In an interview with talk show host Charlie Rose, Mr Buffett suggested his company Berkshire Hathaway’s post-election stock purchases overall were even higher, reflecting stocks that his deputies Todd Combs and Ted Weschler bought.

He said: ”We've, net, bought $12 billion of common stocks since the election.

"The guys that work with me, the two fellows, they probably bought a little bit or sold a little bit too."

Market analysts said the speed with which Berkshire is buying stocks was unusual.

In the three months since Mr Trump’s stunning victory Mr Buffet and his colleagues have invested half of their total spend in the previous three years.
