Submission + - Gmail Now Tells You Who You Should Email (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: "Gmail continues to improve their mail client interface and within the last month, we've seen additions such as an Undo Send feature and YouTube, Picasa, Flickr, Yelp Preview capabilities, as well as many other previous additions. Today, Gmail added a "suggest more recipients" feature which is useful but also a tad creepy. You see, the suggest more recipients feature can suggest people you should email based on previous conversations. In other words, if you've had threads going with a group of people, the next time you add a couple of those recipients to the address field, Gmail can recommend other people you might want to include as well."

Submission + - MacBook Air pwned and owned in 2 minutes flat (engadget.com) 1

jdp writes: "From TFA:

And just think — last year you were singing Dino Dai Zovi's praises for taking control of a MacBook Pro in nine whole hours. This year, the PWN 2 OWN hacking competition at CanSecWest was over nearly as quickly as the second day started, as famed iPhone hacker Charlie Miller showed the MacBook Air on display who its father really was. Apparently Mr. Miller visited a website which contained his exploit code, which then "allowed him to seize control of the computer, as about 20 onlookers [read: unashamed nerds] cheered him on." Of note, contestants could only use software that came pre-loaded on the OS, so obviously it was Safari that fell victim here.
