Interested in web standards, semantics, communication, history of science, and the - uh - universe...

Increasingly disillusioned by Stack Overflow and the rest of the Stack Exchange system, for reasons overlapping those articulated here by Michael Richter and here* by Benjamin Mako Hill.

*Stack Exchange sites are worse than GitHub in this respect.

Indeed, you are correct. Evidently my Google-fu failed me first time around. Feel free to make this into an answer so that I can mark it as correct.

comment Physical security - responsible disclosure
The manufacturer is currently promoting it as a highly secure product, so either they don't know about the vulnerability, or they are behaving in a manner so unethical as to be indefensible. If informed of the vulnerability, I would expect them, at the very least, to stop promoting this product in that fashion; better still, they could issue a product recall. The manufacturer has other revenue streams, so I doubt very much any companies would need to close.

comment Detecting and removing Absolute persistance technology
I'm not sure what you mean by "protected". Presumably, you mean one with the Absolute rootkit removed. Anyhow, this still begs the question of how to get both a protected and unprotected X60 (for instance) in order to make such a comparison.
