It's called Google Device Policy, but it's only been available for Google Apps for Business users

It's great to have a general user option soon, but for those of you with business needs, the option is already there ;-)

Why not? For all we know their detection may be bayesian based and still has "learning" to do in the field. Maybe this learning can take place in a matter of days with a sampling size as large as Android's. I think a trade-off of some start-up time in return for a system that can cope better with new attempts to circumvent its detection the better. FWIW this article is a beat-up - Google have multiple layers to their malware detection, and they've only tested one layer.

Metro *is* indeed innovative, and beautiful, but it's also very fragile. I was immediately taken by it, like you. I think a huge amount of respect must be given to the team that created something so different to everything else out there, whilst still working well. But sadly, not well enough for me. I found the interface to be too focussed on the zoomed/cropped typography and every app felt to similar and didn't get me thinking in "modes" which I need to do... in many ways it's not a GUI at all... it's a TUI (typographical user interface) and this is ultimately it's downfall... there's definately not enough design vocabulary outside of the type. And the tiles are easily destroyed with hideous work by 3rd parties...

+ - Martin Jetpack Climbs 5000 Feet Above Sea Level->

Well, today that all changed with the first climb test in New Zealand (with weighted crash-test dummy) reaching over 5,000 feet above sea level. The emergency parachute test was also a success. Kiwis can indeed fly."

I know plenty of 'pretenders' designers who claim Wacom and OS X Photoshop with a sense of superiority but are really just cookie cutter wannabe's - yet the best designer I've ever worked with uses a mouse and demands Windows + Photoshop - he runs circles around the others. You know - the old cliches are sometimes true - it's what you do with it that counts / all the gear, no idea etc etc.. Since hiring him I no longer use *any* tool usage as a form of assessment, instead choosing to focus on their actual technique with the tools they use. Which is partly your point, I just don't agree with the apple = better designer myth you continue to propagate...

OCZ intros "world's fastest" 1200MHz PC2-9600 Flex XLC RAM->

Champs don't stay that way long in the computer hardware biz, but one way to ensure that the crown stays in the same camp is to one-up yourself before another firm can beat you to the punch. OCZ seems to be feelin' said mantra, as the company's latest Flex XLC RAM overtakes the previous rendition to claim the "world's fastest" title at 1,200MHz. Of course, we've seen quicker memory stuffed onto graphics cards, but the new motherboard-ready PC2-9600 Flex XLC modules sport a svelte hybrid cooling system that melds passive air and liquid injection systems to give you all the bragging rights you'd ever need. The DDR2-1200 modules are currently available in 2GB (2 x 1,024MB) kits, come with a lifetime warranty, and will run you right around $250.
