+ - A New Cryptocurrency: Dogecoin->

Submitted by trexd___
trexd___ (2799583) writes "Dogecoins (DOGES) are a new cryptocurrentcy currently worth millionths of a Bitcoin (almost nothing). For those of you who don't know these coins are based off of the popular meme Doge featuring a Shibu Inu dog with broken English captions spread across the image. While I think this is a stupid meme and it certainly is not professional looking, it's ridiculousness may just be it's key to success."

+ - Pwnie Express Releases Pwn Pad Ahead of Schedule->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The team at Pwnie Express seems to have a lot of trouble standing still, as it doesn’t seem more than a few months go by before they are talking about yet another disruptive open source product that they are about to unleash on the security community.

First it was their Pwn Plug, which combined an off the shelf SheevaPlug with a feature packed open source firmware that turned it into an incredibly capable security tool. Then came the absolutely diabolical Power Pwn, which hid the same type of functionality into what looked like a standard power strip.

Today they’ve launched their latest product, continuing along the same line of hiding cutting edge open source security tools in plain sight: the Pwn Pad."

Comment: hacking with kids (Score 1) 46

These days kids can buy these expensive products and it allows them to easily hack into systems they don't understand. If they really would like to hack it would be better for them to learn how to code and write their own software. This allows them to learn responsibility for hacking and their actions instead of "piggybacking" off of pre-made programs and one button software.
