The British and Dutch Police stated that they confiscated the OiNk.cd servers in Amsterdam last week, however reports of the site still being active and fully functional 24 hours ago.

The servers of OiNK.cd – one of the most popular private BitTorrent trackers – are raided and the admin, a 24-year-old man from Middlesbrough, is arrested.

The British and the Dutch police both contributed to the investigation that was initiated by the IFPI and the BPI, two well known anti-piracy organizations. The operation was supported by Interpol who coordinated the international cooperation.

According to early reports OiNk’s servers were confiscated in Amsterdam last week. This seems to be unlikely because the site was still fully functional 24 hours ago. The administrator of OiNK was arrested this morning by the Cleveland Police. The BBC reports that his employer and the home of his father were raided as well.

Jeremy Banks, Head of the IFPI’s Internet Anti-Piracy Unit, said in a reponse to the news: “OiNK was central to the illegal distribution of pre-release music online. This was not a case of friends sharing music for pleasure. This was a worldwide network that got hold of music they did not own the rights to and posted it online.”

AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch

AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch -

Never again do I want to hear people complaining that they couldn’t find a summer job. Seems AT&T is so confident that people will show up for the iPhone in droves, it has taken the liberty of hiring an extra 2,000 employees to prepare for the madness. To make sense of how big the iPhone launch is going to be, here are some hot statistics:

  • 1,800 AT&T retail stores exist and will all be selling the iPhone
  • AT&T sales staff have received a total of 100,000 hours of training to sell the device, with each employee receiving about six hours of individual training
  • AT&T stores will close locally at 4:30 p.m. on that Friday to prepare for the launch, then reopen at 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. that night.

  • I’m going to be laughing all the way home if Apple and AT&T do all this training and preparation, only to find three dudes with fat wallets sitting outside a store on June 29. It’s almost here kids.

    Creative Zen Stone Plus lobbed at consumers -

    Filed under:


    It was barely a month ago that Creative pelted the market with its Zen Stone, and now they're rolling out a re-upped and revamped version known as the Zen Stone Plus. While pretty much keeping the form factor the same, Creative has added a blue OLED screen, FM tuner, karaoke mode, and a stopwatch. The capacity has been increased to 2GB, doubling the original Stone's, but the color choices remain the same. Price and release date haven't been mentioned, but you'll know as soon as we do.

    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."

    Video of iPhone Sim Free Unbricking and Unlocking (Verdict: It Works)

    A video of the jail breaking and installation of 3rd party applications, but nothing about the activation and if you can use non AT&T SIM's. Still a pretty neat video.
    Video of iPhone Sim Free Unbricking and Unlocking (Verdict: It Works) - We have tested iPhone Sim Free claims and they work. It still not a process for the faint of heart, as it requires using command line-voodoo for the jailbreak and activation, but it works perfectly. Our iPhone is now completely unlocked and open for apps now under Apple's latest firmware.
