Shocking everyone — especially Engadget readers — Nokia announced its new N810 this morning. Details are still incoming, but here’s what we know for sure:

* Same WVGA (800 x 480) display as the N800, brightness increased by ~20%
* GPS with particular focus on the “context sensitive web” via Ovi
* 2GB internal storage (not including memory cards), ships with maps for use with GPS
* Has WiFi, does not have WiMAX
* Bluetooth DUNs to capable phones, totally Foleo-like
* Faster processor, more RAM (we don’t have specifics yet)
* Battery life aimed at 4 hours of “typical use” (movies, music, internet access, etc.) and up to 2 weeks totally idle time, and 5 days active standby (“improved compared to previous generation devices”)
* Runs Nokia’s Linux Maemo interface (duh)
* Ships in November, $479

WoW Database Site Sells for $1 Million

WoW Database Site Sells for $1 Million - MattHock writes "Wowhead (a WoW information database) has to ZAM (Affinity Media) for the price of $1 Million. ZAM is the owner of several other WoW databases, including Thottbot and Allakhazam. Until recently Affinity was also the owner of IGE, a highly controversial company that sold in-game wealth for real life money. Affinity recently sold IGE, which Wowhead claims as the reason they allowed the sale to go through. But did ZAM really sell IGE? The blogger who put this story online doubts that IGE and ZAM have actually distanced themselves. He believes that the supposed sale was just actually a means of restructuring to hide the relationship, similar to how IGE's relationship to Thottbot was hidden for a number of months through a convoluted set of parent companies."

US Prepares for Eventual Cyberwar

US Prepares for Eventual Cyberwar - The New York Times is reporting on preparations in the works by the US government to prep for a 'cyberwar'. Precautionary measures are being taken to guard against concerted attacks by politically-minded (or well-paid) hackers looking to cause havoc. Though they outline scenarios where mass damage is the desired outcome (such as remotely opening a dam's gates to flood cities), most expect such conflicts to be more subtle. Parts of the internet, for example, may be unreachable or unreliable for certain countries. Regardless, the article suggests we've already seen our first low-level cyberwar in Estonia: "The cyberattacks in Estonia were apparently sparked by tensions over the country's plan to remove Soviet-era war memorials. Estonian officials initially blamed Russia for the attacks, suggesting that its state-run computer networks blocked online access to banks and government offices. The Kremlin denied the accusations. And Estonian officials ultimately accepted the idea that perhaps this attack was the work of tech-savvy activists, or 'hactivists,' who have been mounting similar attacks against just about everyone for several years."
