Transgenic Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes Transfer Genes into a Natural Population | Scientific Reports
Apparently, Yale researchers found that GM mosquitoes released by Oxitec in brazil did not die off as promised by the company, and in fact survived, creating transgenic wild bugs and hybrid bugs with the local bugs. The company is now on a PR offensive to squash this report.

Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
Apparently a bug with this patch nukes VMware VMXNET3 adapters by replacing them with an identical network card but returned to default settings. Which means any static IP servers just went DHCP. Plus a VBscript to fix this seems lame... but this is the major rollup patch you should have so...

You have to call KDDI to opt-out of their Android targeted advertising. CALL, as in you have to do the support center, talk to a human thing. What a pack of FAIL.

Japanese government wants to build 'back-up' Tokyo (Wired UK)
Follow the money, since this smells like pork to keep Itami airport afloat. Unfortunately, the normally sane option of just setting up in Osaka proper faces NIMBY issues for land allocation, and there is something to be said for a green field facility, provided it is actually done right. I don't expect it to be done right though, since that is usually very ugly, and japanese people have become overly concerned about outward appearances these days. Also, what took them so long? The Hanshin earthquake should have been enough to show the need for government continuity facilities, but no one did jack then. It takes a real rumbler felt in Tokyo to get them to move? Typical reactive behavior.

Fuel cells, solar little help in blackouts : Business : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)
So those double hybrid setup Ene-farm fuelcell and solar panel rigs that TEPCO and Tokyo gas have been pimping for the last two years for home use are functionally useless during a blackout because they were designed only as electrical consumption reduction measures and not backup/offgrid power sources. I think my friend described it in one word very well; FAIL.
