Submission + - Huge Hurricane On Saturn

Kailden writes: "According to the BBC, the Cassini-Huygens mission has revealed a large hurricane sitting at Saturn's south pole. Unlike the Great Red Storm on Jupiter, this storm most resembles an earthly hurricane because it has a well defined eye and wall. From the article: 'It looks like a hurricane, but it doesn't behave like a hurricane," Dr Andrew Ingersoll, a member of Cassini's imaging team at the California Institute of Technology said. "Whatever it is, we're going to focus on the eye of this storm and find out why it's there.'"

Kailden writes: The BBC is reporting that McAfee is upset with Microsoft's decision to lock out 'independent security firms' from accessing Vista's kernel. Without access to the kernel, McAfee and other third-party firms can't create their own security tools for Vista. Microsoft reasons that this will 'prevent kernel attacks on Vista.' McAfee will alert Vista decision-makers through a full-page ad in the Financial Times.
