Comment Re:Wrist watch is for style, not gadget (Score 0) 466

I have the same watch (Citizen sky hawk) and frankly its the best I ever got.
My old watch was a Timex that had analog and digital. It took 2 batteries, and as soon as one of the battery dropped a few tenth of a volt, the analog clock would stop working. I had the analog clock battery changed, but it only lasted 3 months. I just relied on the digital clock of the watch.
I got pretty tired of changing batteries. So I got an Eco-Drive, and bonus, it syncs with the nearest atomic clock signal.
Pretty neat.


Submission + - Hackers ‘rip off’ Phishers (

An anonymous reader writes: "Some hackers out there don’t like to do all the hard work of running a successful phishing campaign. Instead, they developed a simple online service to ‘steal’ account details from the hard-working phishers. Named AutoWhaler, the service allows anyone to scan a phishing server for log files that contain juicy information such as usernames and passwords."
