I don't know what this is about, but I once had the "1337 H4X" license plate in Pennsylvania.

Oh, okay. I've read it now. I really wish Yahoo would discover the one glaring obstacle to its being accepted as a serious competitor to Google:

Their obnoxious ads.

Google's ads are unobtrusively-placed and relevant. Yahoo's ads are flashing banners coupled with popunders and popups. They have a lot of good ideas, and I think we would all agree that one or more Google alternatives would be great, but ... my god, Yahoo, consider design once in a while.

Also their customer service is beyond awful.

It's headlines like this that make me sure my mother won't get a whole lot out of Fark. (Except the answer to why her son hasn't married yet.)

There are still hackers out there? You guys really can't find anything better to do?

What I love about that movie is they are always typing and their screens have cool graphics going on at the same time. I don't know about hacking, but I sure as hell don't spend the whole time typing away.

I read the headline, read the article... and have yet to understand how these people were "hackers".

It sounds more like they were freelance programmers, invited into the building and given a set of APIs and told to create applications, a la FaceBook.

FTFA: Musically inclined hackers tested their skills on faux instruments playing pretend rock stars in the Rock Band video game.

Gotta watch out for those musically-inclined hackers. They're the worst sort.

Hackers are shrouded in coolness. Will they work their innovative magic for free? Just to help yahoo stick it to M$? They can come over to my place when they're done and compile a printer driver for me.

Don't worry. Lots of other people also hate you for being able to read and understand that headline.

My kids would be really proud of me for being able to read that headline.

Ouch. Can't even begin to understand that. Does remind me of a t-shirt written in 1337 I saw once that said: If you can read this, you're a farking idiot.

Open is cool.
Especially when it's my wife.

Yeah, I was there, and "hacking" really is a misnomer. There was nothing going on with regards to security, and it looked like a lot of people were misinformed about what was really going on - which resulted in a lot of pissed off script kiddies.

Does this mean that Yahoo is broke and they want people to rework their systems for free?
