If somebody stole your credit card information and intends to use it online, it’s not all bad news.  You could end up with a very small tax-deduction, or at least that’s what Symantec is claiming.The latest trend for people who steal credit card information (carders) is that they test the stolen information by making small donations.  Whether or not this will save them a few years when they get sentenced is unknown, but it does seem that they may have found a way around all those algorithms that determine what is and isn’t a “normal purchase” for a cardholder.  After all, not many people donate to charity on the same frequency they shop for clothes, food, gas, and so on. “Carders attempting...

Google’s proudly acquired prize YouTube launched nine different versions of its site today to expand its operations. Countries including Brazil, Japan, Italy, Britain, France, and Ireland are some of the nine local-language versions launched today. The local sites feature content that each region can relate to. Moreover, the sites are already translated into the local language, which offers greater accessibility and comfort to local users. YouTube intends to open more local sites in the future. Interestingly, Germany is excluded from YouTube’s business: “YouTube's announcement comes at an interesting time for the international community, as Yahoo's Flickr still seems to be hashing out a solution...

McAfee's semi-annual overview of their on-going security research says that cyber-criminals are becoming more sophisticated, and are banding together in loose associations to swap code and deliver support for their nefarious endeavors. They've got their eye on your smartphone, too. Among the specific trends outlined in the report are expectations for the continued growth of botnets with the cooperation among hackers adding to the problem via group efforts to develop and refine threat code in the same manner that open-source contributors work in a community. The vast majority of botnets will continue to target flaws in Microsoft products and propagate themselves through buffer overflows,... Read more...
SanDisk is partnering with Yahoo to offer wireless downloads from Yahoo's Music service on their Sansa Connect mp3 player. Streaming radio from Launchcast and Flickr photos too. Neat.

In early November of last year, NVIDIA unveiled their successor to the nForce 5, the nForce 600 series. The starting line-up included three solutions supporting Intel's Core 2 processor, each aimed at a different segment of the market and each with a different price point. The most expensive chipset in the series, the high-end 680i SLI provided a host of new features including dual X16 SLI support with a third X8 PCI-E slot. Next comes the 650i SLI, which lacks many of the 680i's fancier features like dual x16 SLI support, but makes up for it with a significantly lower price point. Finally at the low end is the 650i Ultra, which lacks SLI support altogether. While the three boards in... Read more...

In order to combat crime in a world dominated by technology, the Secret Service has announced the opening of the National Computer Forensic Institute. The institute, to be built in Hoover, Alabama, is scheduled to open in 2008. The plan is to turn out about 900 computer forensic law enforcement officers each year. High-tech training is increasingly important for police officers, detectives, and federal agents as crime continues its migration onto the electronic byways of the Internet. Unfortunately, the level of training offered to law enforcement is "diverse," as the Secret Service delicately puts it. To better educate US crime fighters, the Service has announced the creation of the National... Read more...
According to sources at HKEPC, AMD is planning to launch multiple flavors of their upcoming native quad-core processors, codenamed "Barcelona" in June. And if the information they've compiled is correct, the fastest processor in the group will be clocked at 2.3GHz. "The next-generation AMD quad-core Opteron, codenamed Barcelona and fabricated by 65nm manufacturing technology, is natively designed with 4 functioning cores, each of them owns 512KB L2 Cache and share the same 2MB L3 Cache. Barcelona supports for 128Bit FPU and provides a capability of up to 4 FLOPS/clock. The interface remains in Socket F (1207), and therefore it's compatible to the existing Socket F platforms."...

Hello All. ATI is taking the wraps off yet another mid-range product offering today, the Radeon X1650 XT.  Like the X1950 Pro that was released a few weeks ago, the new Radeon X1650 Pro features a new GPU with native CrossFire support. Here's a snip from the article... "Today, ATI is adding yet another member to the Radeon X1K family of products, the Radeon X1650 XT. While its name suggests the X1650 XT is nothing more than a higher clocked variation on the barely 2-month old Radeon X1650 Pro, that's actually not the case.  The Radeon X1650 Pro is based on a new GPU, formerly code-named RV560, that is much more powerful than anything else in the X16x0 family." You can read the rest... Read more...
About two weeks ago, ATI launched the Radeon X1950 Pro, a new mainstream graphics card with a host of new features. This graphics card was equipped with a single-slot cooler, a relatively low-power GPU that was manufactured on TSMC's 80nm fabrication process, and in a first for ATI, native CrossFire support.  Native CrossFire support meant there would be no more confusion over CrossFire Master and Slave cards, and the clunky external dongle previously associated with CrossFire was no longer a necessity. In our evaluation of the X1950 Pro, we praised ATI for producing a high-performance, affordable, single-slot solution, with a more elegant approach to multi-GPU technology... Read more...
It's been only seven short weeks since ATI officially unveiled four additions to the X1K family of products, and here we are again with yet another new Radeon poised to shake-up the mid-range segment of the market. The new Radeon X1950 Pro is based on the GPU formerly codenamed RV570. but unlike the R580 variants used on the other members of the X1900 family which are built on TSMC's 90nm line, the RV570 is built on the company's 80nm node. The RV570 also has a different pixel shader / vertex shader configuration, and in perhaps the biggest departure from the R580, the RV570 has native CrossFire support.  That's right folks - no more CrossFire Master cards and the...

Who's got the hottest hardware? That's hard to say of course, but Apple certainly causes a buzz whenever they release a product of any kind. Steve Jobs definitely makes a commanding figurehead for Apple, as iconic as Bill Gates over at Microsoft. But who's doing the heavy lifting, design-wise, over at Apple? Business Week highlights Jonathan Ive: But the headliner of the show made a decidedly less showy impression. Shambling onto the stage with a nearly shaved head and dark T-shirt, Apple Computer (AAPL ) Senior Vice-President for Industrial Design Jonathan Ive looked like grad student who had gotten lost on the way to Starbucks...

Over the years, Corsair has earned a solid reputation in the PC enthusiast community for consistently offering some of the best system memory kits in their respective classes. Corsair has a myriad of memory kits available in many different capacities and speeds, and virtually all of them rate well versus their competition. Some of Corsair's most sought after modules are the "low-latency" kits in the company's XMS product line. Low-latency memory typically offers better overall performance than similarly clocked memory with higher latencies, but its not easy to produce high-speed memory kits that also have low-latencies, especially when it's DDR2 DRAM. Corsair was first... Read more...
