Our least favorite rabble rousers, Anonymous, have finally done something with real meaning. The Hactivist group has taken - excuse the bad taste – back door into a Pedophile site, rumaged around and caused a little chaos. Yeehaa, you guys now rock our world! Lolita City, a child pornography site run on a hidden “darknet,” has been taken down by Anonymous members, and account details of 1,600 users from the site’s database were posted as evidence.
The takedown is part of Anonymous’ Operation Darknet, an anti-child-pornography effort aimed at thwarting child pornographers operating on on the Tor network. Anonymous’ attack was focused on a hosting service called Freedom Hosting, which the group claims was the largest host of child pornography on Tor’s anonymized network. Read the full article »»»»

As always Apple knows how to launch a new product, atmospherically, iPhone 4S launch is shaping up to be the mother of all launches. Apple Stores worldwide have come alive in what can only be described as a festive mood. The stores are abuzz, all lit up with little geniuses scuttling about, preparing the stores for the launch of the year.
Apple co-founder and employee number one, Steve Wozniak took the first place in a line at the Apple Store at Los Gatos, California. He apparently didn’t not get an iPhone 4S direct from Apple because he didn’t want to use his position of privilege. He’s happier sitting in line among ordinary folk and signing autographs on the iPhones and iPads of Apple fans. Read the full article »»»»

Amazon, our favorite – buy any darn thing - behemoth, has been leaking blips on it’s upcoming tablet release. Word on the street is that Amazon is prepping two new tablets to be released by November 2011. According to our insider, Amazon is working on two Droid tablets codenamed “Coyote” and “Hollywood”. Coyote will be aimed at the low-end section of the market, powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip. For the bigger gun Hollywood there’ll be NVIDIA’s super processor, the king of 2011, NVIDIA T30 “KAL-EL”, quad-core which is theoretically run up to five times faster than its ancestor. No other features or tablets have been mentioned so far. As before, any devices would ship sometime before the end of the year. The expectation is that Amazon will focus the new models to compete more directly with the iPad. Amazon’s application store and its online video assets can certainly help level the playing field (somewhat) against Apple. Coyote and Hollywood would be focused on a much more advanced category and would more likely be tied into services such as Amazon Instant Video as much the Kindle Store.
