In a world where IPv6 lives and IPv4 addresses are scarce, network providers must fight for survival… or at least, claim their IP blocks quickly. The RIPE NCC, the regional internet registry for Asia, Europe and the Middle East, warns that it’s down to assigning its last set of 16.8 million IPv4 addresses as of this weekend. That sounds like a lot, but we’d do well to remember that the registry churned through about 5.2 million addresses in just the past two weeks. What’s left won’t be around for long, folks. To cut back on the number of Mad Max-style battles for dwindling resources, RIPE NCC is rationing out IPv4 for local registries in 1,024-address chunks — and only to those who both have IPv6 assignments as well as proof of a need for IPv4. With just a bit more than half of the RIPE NCC’s customers currently on IPv6, that could still trigger a shortfall among networks that haven’t prepared for the internet protocol apocalypse. We’d advise that companies stock up on IPv6 supplies before launching the raiding parties.
Question by : How do I delete unwanted and unsaved email addresses on my iPad 2? I wrote in an email to forward a message to my cousin, I don’t want their email saved on my iPad, however whenever I type one letter their email pops up. How can I get rid of that? I really don’t want that there. Any Suggestions?
Answer by Fresh PrinceAs with the Mail app on a Mac, the iPad’s Mail app stores all email recipients in a list of previous recipients. The autofill feature for email addresses when addressing an email pulls from contacts and from the list of previous recipients.
Different from the Mail app on a Mac, there is not a way to access the list of previous recipients to remove a previous recipient from the list, or add a previous recipient to the address book or contacts that is not already entered – not at the present time anyway.
To purge the entire list requires restoring the iPad with iTunes as a new iPad or not from the iPad’s backup.
Very weak on Apples part if you ask me. Sorry for the bad news.

Sony’s PlayStation Network has been down for over a week, and it’s a royal mess for all involved — as you’ve no doubt heard, an external intrusion by unknown hackers compromised the personal information (supposedly including everything but credit card numbers) of potentially million of users. This morning, Sony VP Kaz Hirai (formerly of the PlayStation division) will address the world from the company’s headquarters in Japan, and our friends at Engadget Japanese are on the scene to bring us first-hand details in just a few minutes. Additionally, there appears to be an official livestream that will begin at 1AM ET, so keep it locked right here and potentially find some video at our source link.
Update: We’re hearing that Sony’s “goodwill gesture” may not be an incredibly significant one — affected users can expect a free 30-day subscription to PlayStation Plus and a free software download of some sort, while Qriocity customers will get an extra 30 days of service on the house.
Update 2: As many as 10 million credit card numbers may have been exposed, though Sony says it has no proof that any actually have been compromised, and claims that it’s received no reports of credit card fraud thus far. More below.
2:00 JST: It’s begun — following a little bit of Mozart, Sony has trotted out three solemn-looking executives. More updates after the break.
