Gold Toaster or Ugly Gold PC?

gold pc with usb

I don’t know what these guys are thinking but here’s an ugly bold box called a PC.  From the front it looks like a toaster for only one slice of bread.  From the side it’s got a handle for only god knows why. With all the fancy gold on the outside, I’m curious what the back looks like.  Probably your standard PC output panel. In case you are wondering, we have no idea how much this gold gem costs but we do know it’s got a Dual Core 2.0 processor, eight USB ports, 100GB HDD and 4GB of RAM.

Unlimited DRM Music from Datz

Digital Rights Management have surrounded music ever since the MP3 standard was set back in the late 90s.  We’ve slowly seen labels and artists go the route of DRM free music, and today Datz.com is trying it again.

The program Datz.com is promoting is a $100 membership fee which gives you access to download as much content as you want.  The membership comes with a CD and a loaded USB stick.  It seems the USB music album continues to grow in popularity.  The fee will last you 12 months, but what you accomplish in downloads is yours for life.  Transfer, burn or copy those MP3 to any number of players you want. Some of the record labels Datz.com is claiming you’ll get include EMI, Warner Bros Records, Beggars Group and The Orchard.
What’s the catch? Well, there’s an ominous phrase in the press release, “…a wide selection of new music released in 2009 will be available to Datz Music Lounge members,” indicating that perhaps not all of the new releases will be available?
In either event, if you love music and can part with a C note – Datz might be worth a shot. Source:  ShinyShiny.tv. Continue Reading

Electromagnetic Eavesdropping Over USB Cables – Crazy!

We saw this post a couple days ago over at Engadget and I’ve been meaning to write about it.  Apparently there is new technology which allows you to eavesdrop through USB cables, Ethernet cables and the like.

electromagnetic eavesdropping

The idea is using electromagnetic radiation shot off by USB cables to decrypt the information flowing over them to crack your security and privacy.  The crew at Security and Cryptography Lab at Switzerland’s EPFL have managed to eavesdrop wired keyboards and track keystrokes made by the user. What gets really crazy, is the electromagnetic eavesdropping, or cracking, can be administered up to 65 feet away.  It’s clear that no one is safe. Continue Reading
