Dausha (546002) writes "According to the World Net Daily, Obama's got your e-mail. It appears that the White House New Media team is seeking to hire a technology vendor to collect data such as comments, tag lines, e-mail, audio and video from any place where the White House "maintains a presence" — for a period of up to eight years. This on the heels of earlier news that the Obama administration is gathering information on American citizens exercising their First Amendment rights."

Dausha (546002) writes "The Tech Web news site reports a story about Botnet turf wars. Botnets have been around for a while, and are increasing in severity. The latest innovation finds Bots capturing and securing host computers from other bots. Security includes installing software patches, shutting down ports, etc."
Dausha writes "As if not enough has been said about global warming, yet another scientist (tm)suggests cosmic radiation is a greater contributer to global warming that human production of CO2. The news article is of interest because it reminds us of how science is rarely 100%, and anything less is subject to a better theory. A related article underscores solar output is at its highest in 1000 years, seemingly supporting those who believe that the Sun is a greater contributer."
