+ - Germany Seeks Expansion of Computer Spying

Submitted by gooman
gooman (709147) writes "The LA Times reports on a proposal to secretly scan suspects' hard drives which is causing unease in a nation with a history of official surveillance. Along with several other European countries, Germany is seeking authority to plant secret Trojan viruses into the computers of suspects that could scan files, photos, diagrams and voice recordings, record every keystroke typed and possibly even turn on webcams and microphones in an attempt to gain knowledge of attacks before they happen."

+ - Mystery of Exploding German Toads

Submitted by gooman
gooman (709147) writes "What's up in Deutschland? First they pass onerous copyright laws and now this:
The BBC reports that Toads in northern Germany are being killed off by a mysterious disease — they are exploding! The entrails are propelled for up to a metre (3.2ft), in scenes that have been likened to science fiction. The article states that Scientists are baffled. I'm sure the slashdot brain trust can suggest a likely hypothesis in order to help our amphibian friends, and if not, I'm sure we'll have at least a few good Frog/Toad stories to share."
