800 Break-ins at Dept. of Homeland Security

Wow, this is not cool at all. And to think how much information could already be floating around the internet. “Im in ur Homelands Sekcuritys looking at ur filez”. 800 Break-ins at Dept. of Homeland Security – WrongSizeGlass writes “Yahoo is reporting about the computer security nightmare going on at the Department of Homeland Security. Senior DHS officials admitted to Congress that over a two year period there were 800 hacker break-ins, virus outbreaks and in one instance, hacker tools for stealing passwords and other files were found on two internal Homeland Security computer systems. I guess it’s true what they say … a mechanic’s car is always the last to get fixed.” Read more of this story at Slashdot. [Slasdot]

If you're looking for a specific web application to meet your needs, but you're not sure where to find it, you might want to check out SimpleSpark, a catalog of over 3000 useful online services.

For instance, I typed in "organize" and retrieved around 95 different results to help me get my stuff together. You can also browse through the entire catalog (organized by category), browse pending listings, or check out what's just been added. I found this incredibly helpful especially since there's just so much good new stuff coming out; it's somewhat tricky to keep track of what works and what doesn't.

Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors

I remember the first Celerons or 'Cellys' back in the day. Cheap and relatively good for someone who can only work on one task at a time. Not for an uber geek or insane multi-tasker as you would be able to tell whether or not you were using a Celeron by just sitting down and using the PC for 15 minutes. Either way, an affordable alternative to the current Intel Core Duos.
Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors - Multi-core chips are sweeping the processor market and single cores are becoming harder and harder to find. This trend is about to go through the roof while prices plummet to the basement.

iriver W10 revealed on teaser site

iriver W10 revealed on teaser site -

Filed under: ,


We'd probably be more inclined to gripe about iriver stringing us along like this -- five gadgets, five days, hardly any hard facts -- if there wasn't so much sexy to the devices and photographs the DAP manufacturer is tossing up every 24 hours or so. Today's gadget is the iriver W10, a slim little touchscreen number we got to play with at CES, which seems to swipe some of the iPhone's interface ideas for touchscreen VoIP dialing, while still sticking with those WPS (WiFi positioning system) and PDA / e-book / PMP features we heard about before. We wish we had more to tell you, like price or a release date, but two things are certain: iriver seems bent on swiping every gadget dollar we've ever stashed, and is singlehandedly keeping the hand modelling industry in business.
