by darc (#30746052) Attached to: Google Hacked, May Pull Out of China

According to the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/world/asia/13beijing.html):

Google did not publicly link the Chinese government to the cyber attack, but people with knowledge of Google’s investigation said they had enough evidence to justify its actions.

So I think it's a matter of the Chinese government seeking to uncover the identities of human rights activists by actively attacking Google's and other people's corporate network.

Supercomputing

+ - Where are all the cool cell processor hacks?

It has already been demonstrated that linux is capable of running on the PS3 [video]. That itself is pretty pretty cool, and IBM is doing their own fun stuff with the blade server. So from what I understand, the cell is designed such that the PS3, Blade server, and even a cellphone with a cell processor could all link and act as one "super" computer. I'm guessing that the cell cellphone is a few years away, but with linux already running on PS3s in the wild, why haven't I heard about more cool stuff being done with the cell processor?"
