CipherTrust - Zombie Statistics

Here's a cool novelty. And some scary stats!

Zombies are servers on the net that have been taken over by hackers in some way or another , normally to launch DoS attacks from. This site has a graphical representation of the recent zombie activity.

Apparently they picked up on 172009 zombies in the month of May alone.

Now if only the blasted thing was working in Firefox ...

PCWorld.com - Dual-Core Duel: AMD Beats Intel

So .. we now have the AMD Athlon 64 X2 , dual core. This thing apparently trounces the dual-core Pentium EE 840 on all levels.

Romour has it that the AMD is prohibitively expensive at this stage , so i guess its up to the consumer to decide.

Maybe the Pentium D-based dual core's will be a better bet for now , a lot cheaper then the EE yet plenty fast?

Aaah , finally a proper camera phone that doesn't take pictures that look like they where put thru a blender and then rearranged by a 2 year old with a glue stick! Notice the big screen , and that it has more modes of articulation than a circus contortionist. Cool by me.

Archos AV700

So when's christmas?

Portable Wireless Devices

So there has been a lot of talk on the nokia 770 , but people tend to forget the already released Archos PMA 400.

What a device , pity about the price. Not cheap at around 700 Euro , when the Nokia is expected to retail for about $300.

Then again , the Archos might be more than double the device?
