iZotope, Photoshop for sound, closes another $7.5M in financing

 What does the trailer to Inception, a re-mastered Rolling Stones record and the podcast Serial all have in common?
They’re all awesome. Their creators also all used iZotope products in the background to make them shine.
iZotope, started by a group of MIT undergrads in 2001, hustled their way onto the competitive music scene by first releasing a free plug-in of a record simulator. Read More

Internet Trolls Hack Popular YouTube Channel WatchMojo

An anonymous reader writes: WatchMojo, one of the most popular channels of YouTube with over 12 million subscribers, has been hacked. Subscribers of one of YouTube’s most popular channels, WatchMojo, were greeted with an unusual surprise on Wednesday evening, as a couple of hackers, known only as Obnoxious and Pein, hacked the lineup of the channel’s videos. The two hackers then proceeded to rename almost all of WatchMojo’s videos with the title “HACKED BY OBNOXIOUS AND PEIN twitter.com/poodlecorp.” Since the channel was compromised, the hackers have uploaded two new videos, “Top 5 Facts About the Yakuza,” and a video about Neanderthal myths. Apart from these, however, the hackers have not touched anything else on the channel. Though, most of WatchMojo’s videos still remain hacked as of writing. The popular channel announced that it is fully aware of the hack. WatchMojo further stated that it has already contacted YouTube about the

Comodo Attempting to Register ‘Let’s Encrypt’ Trademarks, And That’s Not Right

Let’s Encrypt is a nonprofit aimed at encrypting the entire web. It provides free certificates, and its service is backed by EFF, Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai and others. Despite it being around for years, security firm Comodo, which as of 2015, was the largest issuer of SSL certificates with a 33.6% market share on 6.6% of all web domains, last year in October filed for the trademark Let’s Encrypt. The team at Let’s Encrypt wrote in a blog post today that they have asked Comodo to abandon its “Let’s Encrypt” applications, directly but it has refused to do so. The blog post adds: We’ve forged relationships with millions of websites and users under the name Let’s Encrypt, furthering our mission to make encryption free, easy, and accessible to everyone. We’ve also worked hard to build our unique identity within the community and to make that identity a reliable indicator of quality.

Battle lines are drawn: IBM prepares Power9 to take on Intel and ARM

IBM has many goals with its upcoming Power9 chip, and one of them is to challenge the dominance of Intel’s x86 chips in the data center.
The company wants chips based on Power architecture to take a double-digit server chip market share by 2020, Doug Balog, general manager for Power Systems at IBM, said in an interview.
It’ll be a three-way battle between x86, Power and ARM, which has a similar goal of a double-digit market share in the next four years. IBM’s Power is off to a better start in terms of socket share, Balog said. IBM already is being used in servers, while ARM server processors are largely still being tested.
Intel dominates the data center server chip market with a 90-plus percent market share. But IDC has predicted that Intel’s share will shrink as ARM-based chips and AMD’s x86-based Zen take away some of that lead.To read this article in

Happy 20th Birthday, Quake

Twenty years. Wow. Where has all the time gone? We’ve all had many adventures during those years and Quake spawned many a game franchise and/or game company whether directly or through its influence.For this 20th I’m going to share a document created by Joost Shuur called QUAKETALK 95. This Quake FAQ was created on 10/22/1995 to keep people up to date on everything that had been posted about Quake up to that point. People wanted to know what the game was about and information was spread thin all over the place: magazine articles, IRC logs, even in hint books.Joost did a great job scraping this information together. You can see the original design thinking behind Quake while we were making it. Just one month after this QUAKETALK 95 FAQ was released was our fateful, big company meeting that determined the final direction of the game into the Quake that was

Defending Our Brand

Some months ago, it came to our attention that Comodo Group, Inc., is attempting to register at least three trademarks for the term “Let’s Encrypt,” for a variety of CA-related services [1][2][3]. These trademark applications were filed long after the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) started using the name Let’s Encrypt publicly in November of 2014, and despite the fact Comodo’s “intent to use” trademark filings acknowledge that it has never used “Let’s Encrypt” as a brand.

We’ve forged relationships with millions of websites and users under the name Let’s Encrypt, furthering our mission to make encryption free, easy, and accessible to everyone. We’ve also worked hard to build our unique identity within the community and to make that identity a reliable indicator of quality. We take it very seriously when we see the potential for our users to be confused, or worse, the potential for a third party to damage
