patent

A patent application from Apple, entitled “System and Method for Authentication Based on Particle Gun Emissions,” was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week. It states that current DRM methods for authentication, but by their nature they can lack security.

Apple’s solution would employ a particle gun, which would send an emission with unique physical properties to a receiver which would be able to verify the authenticity. The receiver would then generate a second value, and compare it with the first.

Pretty interesting idea. For consumers though, it sounds expensive.  Yea its no i1911 (pictured) but it will have to do.

On a similar note… this youtube parody video makes me cringe:

Pointing a gun at a camera or computer screen is one thing, but putting it against your head and putting the trigger is a whole other level of stupidity.

As some of you know, Dick Swan from A.R.M.S is suing LaRue Tactical

“for using the numerals 1 and 7 in our LT-170 mount part number. He filed for and last spring outrageously got a trademark on “#17″ and then he sued us.”

In that AR15.com thread, Mark Larue generously offered to replace ANY broken A.R.M.S. mount with a comparable mount of his own.  FOR FREE!

I thought that was just plain awesome.. but it gets better.

We are hereby offering to replace any A.R.M.S. mount that the owner intentionally breaks the M.I.M. lever off.

As you can imagine, the response is huge!

One example of awesomeness from the thread:
