In Pictures: 10 surreal moments in infosec history

A look at moments in infosec history that left us dumbfounded.

The perils of legislating security Though some in infosec have criticized Congress for failing to produce a cybersecurity bill that can pass, others would prefer nothing reaches fruishion. The reason: Congress keeps pumping out legislation that does little to bolster security and much to give the government unlimited power to invade our privacy. For an example of the surreal, take a look at the current version of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).

As written, it would allow private companies to share a wide range of customer information they deem to be related to cyberthreats with U.S. agencies like the National Security Agency.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
