An official statement on the site (in Japanese) explains So-Net has terminated exchanges of points, and asked customers to change their passwords. The story translator says the total lost was "about 100,000 yen," or $1,224. Google's translation of the site reads that as "approximately 10 million yen," or $122,384, which is probably why we shouldn't trust Google Translate.

The two men were discovered when Säpo noticed them tracking people who it was also investigating for suspected ties to terrorist groups, the paper said, quoting several unnamed sources close to Säpo.

Washington had not informed Swedish authorities of the agents' activities in the country, and soon after their activities were discovered, the two US citizens left the country, the paper added."

Ballmer Says Google's Growth Is 'Insane' 420

Posted by Zonk
from the doubling-the-doubled-growth-rate dept.
eldavojohn writes "Steve Ballmer spoke to the Seattle PI this week, commenting that Google's pace of employee growth is 'insane,' and the company has few successful businesses outside of Internet search and advertising. He referred to Google's non-search efforts as 'cute.' Google's current number of employees is nearly doubling each year. 'I don't really know that anybody's proven that a random collection of people doing their own thing actually creates value.' Mr. Ballmer went on complain that, in general, competition for good programmers has become an issue. Even 'hedge funds' are looking for skilled coders, making the HR fight between the two companies that much more challenging."
