+ - Sony's New root kit in FW 3.56->

Submitted by JonChance
JonChance (1115393) writes "Vagabundo posts:
Apparently, examination of the OFW has found a new feature that will allow Sony to download and run code when you login to PSN. The code they can run is obviously to check for CFW or whatever, but the code could change to check for anything really.

And with the current state of PS3 security there is the possibility that others might be able to run their code on your PS3 without your knowledge.

I don't run CFW and I'm pretty pissed about this. What they are doing might be illegal in the EU."

+ - Female Viagra->

Submitted by JonChance
JonChance (1115393) writes "I was cruising around the net and came across this on the BBC news site.

A drug that failed tests as an antidepressant is being hailed as "Viagra for women" after surprising but not unpleasant side effects. In three separate trials, the drug flibanserin did wonders for women's flagging sex drive despite doing nothing to lift mood.The accidental discovery is akin to Viagra's — it was originally designed as a heart medicine but failed."
