comment Can we edit bios properties from desktop?
"Once an attacker has admin rights, the rootkit could be flashed onto the BIOS [...]" -- When this article says acquiring 'admin rights', it's not talking about Windows administrator. It's talking about master control of the CPU. No application has master control - that is reserved for the OS only, and for certain uses following strict security protocol. The only way to get around that is to exploit a security fault in Windows to bypass the OS. If you write a program that manipulates the BIOS, it's a virus, hands down. And I believe it can only flash (reinstall) the BIOS, not edit settings.

comment Is passing the Acid3 test important?
Passing a test such as the Acid test is much more than just "a measure of the ability to pass that test." The Acid test describes web standards. If a browser does not pass that test, it's doing something wrong. It's as simple as that. The Acid test will tell you how correctly or how incorrectly your browser displays websites, based on what the simple rules say it should be. The fact that a significant portion of the world uses IE without problems is because people IGNORE the Acid test and force honest developers to break rules so that things show properly in a faulty browser.
