Assuming this is all true, it's not the first time an outsourced worker in India has resorted to blackmail. It makes you wonder, however, why we continue to outsource our work to such other regions of the world, as well as about the naivete of the woman involved. In this case, Tara Fitzgerald, 48 and a mother of a 14-year-old of Sacramento,... Read more...

Add NetJets to the list of aircraft where you'll soon be able to surf the Web, check email, and even listen to the latest hits from Pandora at 41,000 feet. This summer, NetJets will install Aircell's technology on more than 250 of its fleet of 800 private aircraft. The service will be installed... Read more...
There's no doubt that the popularity of RIM's BlackBerry handset line has dropped somewhat as newer versions of iOS and Android make the iPhone and the array of Android phones on the market that much more attractive, but for the business people, there's still no real replacement. And you might say that America's President falls into that classification.... Read more...

The past 6 months have shown at the box office that people are willing to pay for 3D, particularly with blockbuster films that really take advantage of the effect. NVIDIA knows this quite well, and they have already seen that people are eager to bring 3D to their... Read more...
WiMAX is still a fledgling service in America. Even though Sprint and Clearwire have invested tons of money in the 4G service, it's still spotty at best and only available in a few locations. But as with anything, it grows in time, and there's no better way to really grow than to get your service in the faces of consumers. And there's hardly... Read more...
Thanks to high definition video, pictures, and other digital files, we need increased amounts of storage. Soon, the storage capacity of Blu-ray discs could double. In fact, companies such as Sharp, TDK, and Verbatim are already making plans to launch new discs that can store up to 100GB of data. According to a statement, Sharp will start selling... Read more...
Apple's fans are so devoted that they have been called a "cult." A pair of researchers at Texas A&M have gone still further. The professors, Heidi A. Campbell and Antonio C. La Pastina have written a paper that says the sheer adoration and lack of fault-finding by Apple fans isn't a cult, but a religion. The iPhone, after all, has been... Read more...
Most of us here behind the scenes roll through the Web with Firefox or Chrome, but for those of you still clinging to Microsoft's Internet Explorer, you'll have a new browser to play with in September. That's when the Redmond software juggernaut will push out the first fully fledged beta (as opposed to that highly limited Preview release floating... Read more...

With Sony leading the 3D push in the home, you shouldn't be surprised that Sony already has a couple of 3D HDTV models headed to market. But when a market leader like Sony makes a move, it only takes a small amount of time for the "other guys" to catch up and do likewise. That's exactly what has happened here, with Toshiba adding some much... Read more...
In need of extra cash? Who isn't, right? If you're a smart hacker, you may be able to make a small fortune by simply tricking an ATM or two into spitting out money for you. We know that sounds crazy, and it certainly is, but it's true nonetheless. At the annual Black Hat conference -- where hackers and security... Read more...
If you're an Android app developer, and you have been troubled in the past by ill-willed people stealing your apps and then hosting them online for others to download, it's evident that Google is listening to your squealing.
