To Re-Enable Flash Support, South Africa's Tax Agency Released Its Own Web Browser

"The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has released this week its own custom web browser," reports ZDNet, "for the sole purpose of re-enabling Adobe Flash Player support, rather than port its existing website from using Flash to HTML-based web forms." To prevent the app from continuing to be used in the real-world to the detriment of users and their security, Adobe began blocking Flash content from playing inside the app starting January 12, with the help of a time-bomb mechanism...

Sigil 1.4.3 - Validation Not Catching Errors Now

I’ve been using Sigil for quite a long time – at least 10 years. I have over 450 books published on Amazon D2D etc., plus I help other authors with their publishing, so I have generated boatloads of EPUBs over this time period. So I’m in general comfortable with Sigil and its operations. I recently had to upgrade to a new computer which got me onto Sigil 1.4.3 on Windows 10. With this change, Sigil altered how it handled the validation process. Where before I could create perfect EPUB files for...

CNN: Tesla's Net Profit 'Doesn't Come From Selling Cars'

"Tesla posted its first full year of net income in 2020 — but not because of sales to its customers," reports CNN: Eleven states require automakers sell a certain percentage of zero-emissions vehicles by 2025. If they can't, the automakers have to buy regulatory credits from another automaker that meets those requirements — such as Tesla, which exclusively sells electric cars. It's a lucrative business for Tesla — bringing in $3.3 billion over the course of the last five years, nearly half of t...

A 25-Year-Old Bet Comes Due: Has Tech Destroyed Society?

"Twenty five years ago I made a bet in the pages of Wired. It was a bet whether the world would collapse by the year 2020." So writes the 68-year-old founding executive editor of Wired magazine, Kevin Kelly. He'd made the bet with a "Luddite-loving doomsayer," according to Wired — author Kirkpatrick Sale. "Sale while a student in the 1950s co-wrote a musical with Thomas Pynchon about escaping a dystopian America ruled by IBM," remembers Slashdot reader joeblog. This month a new article in Wi...
