The Weekly Tech News
Hi all.
My apologies for getting a little carried away last week folks, this week should be more of a 'summary' as these things are intended to be. Perhaps if people have an opinion on what the minimum and maximum number of articles included should be they could let me know in a reply.
I'm afraid I haven't gotten around to getting code out to Mouse Man for the 'Expand All' button. If I get it done before next week's news and we can actually implement it I'll add it here.
As usual, you can find last week's news here.


1. Facebook Wins Record $873m Fine Against Smut Spammer

2. Security Breach Gives PayPal Phish the Personal Touch

3. Unofficial Fix Issued for Vista Networking Flaw

4. More MS08-067 Exploits

5. Judge Says BU Can't Turn Over Infringers' IPs in P2P Case

6. Key Molecule for Life Found in Habitable Region of the Galaxy

7. Lenovo Kills Notebooks With a Text Message

8. Another Layer of Security for PayPal Accounts

9. New Machines Scan IDs at Border Crossings

Thanks again for this week's issue smiley

Number 6: Cool!  (On a somewhat related note.  There's a pretty interesting-sounding lecture series (expensive) from the Teaching Company named "Origins of Life" -- I haven't seen this series, but I've watched a different series (Joy Of Science) by the same lecturer and thought that was pretty good.)

Oh no, I hope this isn't grounds to kick me out of the tin-foil-hat brigade ohmy Please, at least I mentioned the possibility of it being hacked, have mercy  Wink

Thanks for the compliment tomos, I think I might start a thread about favorite fractals or something, because these are REALLY worth seeing.
