It certainly looks exactly like the Arnova Childpad, which i bought for about $130 a couple of months ago. It is now waiting for burial i the electronics graveyard, since it couldn't take a mild beating by a two year old. The screen has no marks, but is broken. I learned a few things about Android on the way though, since I've only had an iPhone and iPad previously (the Childpad was essentially bought so I could have the iPad to myself). "Tabeo store" means it's not Google certified, and thus will not run the Google Play store, and you won't have access to a lot of thing you'd normally take for granted, like Google maps, youtube, Gmail and the likes. The battery time also sucked, and the viewing angles were less than optimal. I won't be buying any Android devices not marked 'Nexus' in the future.

+ - Dateline NBC Mole Caught at DefCon->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: Dateline NBC allegedly attempted to infiltrate the DefCon hackerfest with a producer using a hidden camera. The show allegedly hoped to tape hackers admitting to illegal activities, but DefCon got wind of the plot and displayed the would-be-mole's photo before every presentation. Dateline refused to deny the planned infiltration.
