A well-known German hacker group has accused the German government of releasing a Trojan horse program into the wild. According to the Chaos Computer Club, the program is the stuff of political fiction: it was designed to allow the government to spy on its citizens.

Apparently, another one of the somewhat all-too-common malware-related problems in the U.S. military has resulted in the systems used by pilots who control U.S. Air Force drones being infected by a "keylogger." Although detected by the military's security systems, they've been unable to wipe it off their systems, at least permanently. A source... Read more...

It's unclear to us why the death of Steve Jobs has hit us hard. We never knew him personally.  We love Android and hate the iOS closed model.  Despite that, while watching the videos when writing this, we would tear up, occasionally.  Is it because his age isn't that far off of ours?   Whatever the reason, farewell, Steve....

While Apple hasn't released exact sales figures yet, AT&T said that in its first 12 hours of sales it sold 200,000 iPhone 4S units. In addition, there is indication that demand is high, and across the board: Apple's online store is now sold out of iPhone 4S pre-orders, on all carriers, with shipping now taking 1-2 weeks.

Exactly one week after the "big" iPhone 4S event, Samsung and Google will introduce Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0?) and the Nexus Prime. At least, that's what their invitation leads us to believe. This will be the next "big" event, and the alternative one for Android lovers, as opposed to iOS lovers. In the teaser video that Samsung has... Read more...
How did Sprint finally score the iPhone? It did so by guaranteeing to Apple that it would purchase 30.5 million iPhones over the next 4 years, amount to $20 billion worth of the handsets, at current pricing.

The text message alerts those affected that they are among... Read more...

In addition, screenshots of AT&T's inventory system showed... Read more...
