Initially Microsoft will sell it exclusively to corporate customers, such as hotels, casinos, phone stores and restaurants.

Submission + - The first war in cyberspace.

An anonymous reader writes: The New York Times has an interesting article on the digital war on Estonia following the removal of a Russian war memorial. onia.html?pagewanted=1&th&emc=th

Russia is blamed for launching the war and there are even tracks to Putin.

Interesting description of the attacks and countermeasures that the Estonians took which appear to have been fairly sophisticated. Now that Russia is back in the war business, I think we can expect to see more of this... welcome to the future.

Submission + - Geography

Aventico writes: "Islamatlas We are happy to sell, in the Euratlas Shop, a new atlas by Dr Andreas Birken on a red hot subject: 119 pages, 96 highly detailed maps and several charts on geography, peoples, history, politics, and economy of the Islamic World from 622 to 2007 A.D. The atlas is available only in German, but this should not be a great difficulty for those who are used to reading maps. Cartographic documents about Islam are scarce or inaccurate. So this atlas will fill in a gap."
