Dumb code – dumb idea

November 23rd, 2009 Comments off

I saw an article about this new technology that’s supposed to “stop computer viruses in their tracks.”  The idea is interesting, but overall I think it would be useful in only a very limited, focused application.  Things would get far too complicated, far too quickly, for it to be both successful and at all versatile.

So I think the fact that it’s being patented, and the fawning article in New Scientist, are laughable.  I was going to viciously mock them but it turns out David Harley beat me to it.  He added less sarcastic commentary here.
