Submission + - What options are there left for slide style keyboa

Kharny writes: I've been looking around for a decent replacement for my rather aging nokia 6760.

The problem is, there is practically no new qwerty phones coming out from nokia (still my preferred brand due to hardware reliability). The N900 and E7 are both getting a bit older and really aren't worth the money compared to the newer models. Help? :D

Submission + - Google "accidentally" collected wireless data (wired.com)

Kharny writes: A mistake in streetview car software meant that google has been collecting wireless data from any unencrypted sources that their streetview cars passed.

Software meant to collect mac adress and ssid "to improve marketing data" had been programmed in such a way that if a WAN was unprotected, it would also collect surfing and email data transmitted.

Submission + - Blizzard adds timestamps to armory (wowarmory.com)

Kharny writes: In a move that could cause quite serious privacy problems, blizzard added timestamps and a rss feed to world of warcraft characters in their online armory. This new feature will mean that anyone can follow "realtime" developements in a world of warcraft character, and if the user behind the character would be know, even add time and date to playing habits. Many players have already complained about the fact that there is no opt-out option and this opens very big possibilities for online stalking.
