Submission + - Typing on the Edge

An anonymous reader writes: As tech pervades every aspect of our lives we have started to see a new type of product come about, something that can only be described as tech luxury. The diNovo Edge is the first keyboard to be part of Logitech's Advanced Peripherals line. These are high-end components whose goal is to match style with serious performance. This by itself does not tell us much about the keyboard, but we know that is has been promoted to the same category of items as Logitech's Z-10 speakers and MX Revolution mouse so there must be something to it.

Submission + - Now you see it, now you don't -News Escrow needed?

An anonymous reader writes: This story from computerworld (keyword: scareware) was up for one day and has now disappeared. Infoworld still has the story. The issue is that I posted a comment and not only is my comment gone but the whole story (from computerworld). It's as if they never posted the story. But a search on computerworld.com's site (using "scarewaer") shows the summary of the story but it links to the web root (computerworld.com/). I've seen this a few times before and IMHO destroys the integrity of journalism. They can simply change the story or remove it from their servers when they see fit. And please, I request no argument pertaining to 'private company, capitalism, free market, etc'. You can no longer say "it's there in black and white". You pass the fresh link onto your friends who think you're crazy because no such story exists when they attempt to access it, or even worse; the story's content (and meaning) is changed on the fly without any record of the change. Google it: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=scareware+msn +live InfoWorld: http://www.infoworld.com/article/07/02/20/HNmicros oftscareware_1.html Computerworld search for scareware: http://computerworld.com/action/googleSearch.do?cx =014839440456418836424%3A-khvkt1lc-e&q=scareware&c of=FORID%3A9#479 There should be some sort of editorial escrow site that accepts news and updates but does not allow the "original record" to change.
