No Respite for Sony

Since the hacker group calling itself "Guardians of Peace" announced its attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment late last month, things have gone downhill for the company. After confidential documents were leaked to the Internet over several days, a denouement of sorts was reached last week, when a security company examining the stolen data discovered nearly 50,000 Social Security numbers.

FileCloud Now Available Via AWS Marketplace

Austin, Texas, 12/12/2014 -- CodeLathe, the leader in enterprise private cloud, today announced the immediate availability of FileCloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The availability of FileCloud for AWS will allow businesses to host FileCloud in the Amazon cloud infrastructure. Customers will experience the flexibility and total control of FileCloud, as well as the scalability and reliability of AWS.



FileCloud is the leading, self-hosted file sharing, sync, and mobile access solution for small-to-large businesses. By using FileCloud and AWS�EU�s infrastructure (EC2, EBS, S3) businesses can create their own branded file storage solution (complete with company logo and domain) in a few minutes at a compelling price point. FileCloud client apps are available for all major desktop and mobile operating systems including Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Windows, and Windows Phone 8.



FileCloud provides users with secure access, file sharing, and sync from anywhere. It provides endpoint backup, data leak prevention (DLP), and HIPAA compliant auditing. FileCloud can be run under any domain, and easily customized to reflect your organization�EU�s brand. FileCloud�EU�s unique capabilities are: the ability to monitor information; prevent and fix data leakage; and assure corporate data is protected across all devices (including laptops, desktops, smartphones, and tablets).



�EU�In contrast to managed public cloud enterprise file share and sync offerings, FileCloud hosted on Amazon infrastructure provides the best of two worlds: the complete control, flexibility, data separation and customization of FileCloud; and the scalability, resiliency of the AWS infrastructure. Further, FileCloud costs only 25$/user/year, which is 20 percent of the price of other managed EFSS offerings,�EU� said Madhan Kanagavel, chief executive of CodeLathe.



AWS is a collection of remote computing services, also called web services, which make up a cloud-computing platform. AWS was founded in 2006, and operates in 11 geographical data centers, or...

A Federal Administrative Law Judge ruled late last week that Cablevision and its CEO James Dolan broke multiple labor laws in an attempt to stop workers in Brooklyn and the Bronx from unionizing. CWA will now begin the process to get New York City to bring the corporation into compliance with its cable franchise and, if necessary, declare it in default of the franchise for violations of the labor rights provisions of the agreement.

This Life-Size Wall-Hugging Figure Is Actually Only Half an R2-D2

This Life-Size Wall-Hugging Figure Is Actually Only Half an R2-D2


Here's a real head-scratcher from Bandai. If you've always wanted your very own R2-D2, but, only have enough room for the R2 part, there's now this life-size 'action figure' that's actually only half of the droid. Weird.


This Life-Size Wall-Hugging Figure Is Actually Only Half an R2-D2


It's designed to cozy up next to a wall to help hide the fact that half of your droid is missing, but it makes up for it (almost) with motion-activated sounds that trigger authentic R2-D2 sound effects. So what does half a life-size figure go for these days? You're looking at dropping just shy of $300 for this piece when it's available in Japan next year, so you might want to consider keeping it in mint condition inside its gigantic packaging.
