Admiral Lazzurs
Admiral Lazzurs writes "In yet another case of computer security causing company embrassment Subway and other retailers have had their P.O.S. terminals compromised recently.

Submitted by
Rob Lazzurs

However I would expect given the issues with the first device the question on most G1 users lips will be "Is the battery life any better?"."
