Oracle CEO Larry Ellison Views on Issues (

Technology News (from CBS News)

Larry Ellison, America’s third richest man and the CEO of tech giant Oracle, took aim at Google in a wide-ranging interview with Charlie Rose, calling out Google CEO Larry Page “specifically” for overseeing Google’s decision to “take our Oracle’s stuff.”

Oracle produces a widely-used database that operates web systems from online banking platforms to airline reservation systems. The company is currently locked in a legal battle with Google, and Ellison maintains that the online search giant used Oracle programming language without permission.

“We don’t compete with Google. We don’t do anything Google does. We just think they took our stuff and that was wrong. That’s a completely separate issue … I think what they did was — was– absolutely evil,” Ellison told Rose.

My Two Cents: I would have to agree with Larry Ellison, Evil are people that copy code and claim they wrote it themselves. We write the coding systems that creates code. Our customers demand systems that do not exist, so we have to create coding systems to code what they request. If someone was to steal that, they should go to jail, and to hell. It seems these days in the news a lot of people want to copy, or take the easy way out and cheat, while we the engineers create and protect our IP from these types of people, corporations and governments.

Password Security flaw discovered in Google Chrome

Password Security flaw discovered in Google Chrome (

Technology News

Web designer Elliott Kember noticed a security flaw in the Google Chrome browser earlier this week. When he went to transfer the bookmarks from his Safari browser to Chrome, he went digging into some simple Chrome settings only to find that when you go to import bookmarks from another browser, the software automatically defaults to bringing over your saved passwords. While there is a check mark to disable the password import, it can’t be unchecked on a Mac, something ABC News was able to confirm.

Google plans to fix that specific problem soon, confirming to ABC News that the automatic syncing of passwords from Safari browsers was a bug in the Mac version of Chrome.

“Thanks to our users, who discovered a bug in Chrome’s import interface, which improperly represents how passwords are handled upon import from other browsers,” Google said in a statement provided to ABC News. “We developed a fix to better represent how passwords are handled across platforms, which will roll out to all users soon.”

However, that fix won’t solve another problem Kember found. He went a step further to point out that if you do import those passwords to Chrome they, and any other passwords you have saved in the browser, are completely unprotected. By typing in chrome://settings/passwords in Chrome address bar, you are able to see the saved passwords and usernames for the websites you visit.
