bobdehnhardt writes: The Reg reports: Multiple Barracuda Networks products feature an undocumented backdoor, leaving widely deployed network and data center gear vulnerable to hijacking. Privileged user accounts were found in various Barracuda appliances, including its flagship Spam and Virus Firewall, Web Application Firewall, Web Filter, SSL VPN, and other gear. The accounts, which Barracuda claims are necessary for remote customer support, cannot be disabled, are hard-wired into the equipment's operating system, and can be assessed remotely via SSH or the local terminal.

Capacitive. Not IR or Passive. They really are trying a different approach to the device as "social" reading. While the Fire is more a media device, for the US. The only thing I'm concerned about is the Android Market. While they say it's a full and open android device. I suspect they have their own Android store and will have limited you to apps they allow. Whether you can sideload the Kindle app on to it needs to be seen.
