The many governments around the world are facing a growing concern as the internet gains more popularity and becomes more accessible. You need to provide information or access to services or devices to many different locations across your country or the world, and the only way to do this is through private networks and the internet.

Recently a report by McAfee has been released called the "Virtual Criminology Report" which is a report on Organized Crime on the Internet. Its a nice little read, and has some graphs showing some information about countries and their operations.

The internet is a huge threat to any Government agency, since its open for anyone to access. In recent news you might have seen some articles about how the US Government thinks that the internet is a terrorist tool, and that it should be monitored and controlled. Anything can be a terrorist tool if used properly, its not the medium that is the problem its what travels through it. If you’re not well enough equipped to stop people from gaining access to your network, don’t take the internet down with you.

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.

P2P Remains Dominant Protocol

P2P Remains Dominant Protocol - An anonymous reader writes "Last week, a press release was issued by Ellacotya that suggested something quite startling — HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, aka Web traffic) had for the first time in four years overtaken P2P traffic.
