Unwinnable prices on the internet

r3s - Monheim/Rhein
Roland Meertens
Some websites offer a spinning wheel where you, in return for your e-mail address, can win prices and discounts and products. I dove into the code which powers this 'game', and discovered that many prices can't be won, even when altering the probabilities. In this talk I will discuss what I discovered, what I tried, and what the results were.
Some websites offer a spinning wheel where you, in return for your e-mail address, can win prices and discounts and products. I dove into the code which powers this 'game', and discovered that many prices can't be won. By altering the javascript code which powers these games it's possible to alter the probabilities, but that does not help to win the interesting prices which lure you into giving your e-mail address. In this talk I will discuss what I discovered, how I did this, and what the results were. Last but not least I will try to find what the law says about this practice.

With approaches dating back to the 20th century, the idea of a TPM is simple: An isolated, constrained environment to offload trust establishment in a larger computing environment. That implies cryptography, firmware, hardware, and per application, different requirements. This talk elaborates on how the seemingly simple concept has been expanded over the years, enumerating implementations in hardware, firmware, other layers of software, and even web browsers, explaining why it is in fact far ...

The Blauer Engel 4 FOSS (BE4FOSS) project from KDE e.V. seeks to collect, summarize, and spread information related to eco-certification and resource efficiency as it relates to FOSS development. In this talk I will focus primarily on the energy consumption of software, which is also the focus of the Free & Open Source Software Energy Efficiency Project, or FEEP for short. I will walk the audience through the 3 steps for obtaining *Blauer Engel* certification: (1) *Measure*, (2) *Analyze*, (3) ...

You like tinkering with single board computers, mesh networks and antennas? You've done it all! But what's next? Maybe this talk is for you. Using Linux, software defined radio and dirty little scripts, we built a realtime marine & airborne vehicle tracking network.
