Norwegian hacker cracks iTunes code
OSLO, Norway (AP) -- A young Norwegian who became a global hacker hero by writing and distributing a program to crack DVD security codes appears to have struck again, this time against Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes online music service. Jon Lech Johansen, 19, faces a new trial that starts Tuesday after prosecutors appealed his January acquittal on charges that he violated Norway's data break-in laws with his DeCSS program for DVDs.

Bush Visit to Iraq Becomes Talk of Baghdad
President Bush's surprise visit to Iraq was the talk of Baghdad's teahouses, kebab shops and mosques Friday, with many Iraqis asking why he didn't take advantage of his trip to see firsthand how his rule has treated them.
This is a website that shows the copiers of the internet who Pirate the designs and that means they copy the design and make and exact but different design, for example I found this on they're website:
OK so you get the point well have a look at this website then:
THIS ONE'S NO DOG
Time Magazine- The Aibo, Sony's toy robot dog, was a huge commercial hit. But it's a quadruped so, by today's standards, no great shakes. Meet Qrio (rhymes with curio), the company's new bipedal "personal agent." More of a corporate showpiece than an actual product (on the market it would fetch about as much as a BMW), Qrio can walk uphill, sing, dance, wave hello, wiggle its fingers and kick a ball with surprising grace. Two digital cameras, one behind each eye, help Qrio map a room for future reference and recognize up to 10 different faces. It can also converse in Japanese. Can you?
Now this is a challenge between they're robot and the Honda Asimo.
Is school always boring?
Its weird how I learn all these stupid stuff in school that I dont think I am going to use any of those things when I grow up. Some things are important such as math which I really try to get all A's and I mostly get A's or B's but you know in science we learn stupid stuff like how light reflects...!! everybody knows that! but we have to like draw all these things and estimate which direction and all that... I really hate Science this year, and I know exactly why! Because its a lot more boring then all my other grades.

Mini-copter stars at robot show
The world's lightest and smallest robot helicopter has been unveiled at a Tokyo exhibition by the Seiko Epson company.
The designers say the 70-mm-tall device could be used as a "flying camera" to enter earthquake-shattered buildings. The prototype four-legged robot weighs 10 grammes and although it flies by remote control, it has to be linked to an external power source via a cable.
New Whale Species Announced by Japanese Scientists
The number of rorqual whale species swimming in the world's oceans has jumped to eight from six, according to new research by a team of Japanese scientists published in tomorrow's issue of the science journal Nature.

TechTv- When we say first look, we mean it. "Tech Live" is the only media outlet in the country so far to play with Fisher's just-announced Pocket CameraCorder FVD-C1. We'll show you first-hand its promising features on tonight's show. This new digital camcorder fits in the palm of your hand. Shooting with it feels like you're holding the barrel of a gun. If you're into firearms, the FVD-C1 might just be for you. Of course, you won't be shooting bullets but precious memories. Oh, one more thing. This camcorder doesn't use tape.

"We have discovered that some of the N-Gage games are available for downloading on a number of Web sites," said Damian Stathonikos, a Nokia spokesperson. "We will work closely with ISPs and authorities, and continue to develop our own copy protection mechanisms to curb this action."
Radar Data Shows Moon Is Dry At Poles
In a potentially serious blow to future lunar colonization efforts, new radar measurements of the poles of Earth's moon show no signs of water there in the permanent shade and shadow of deep craters. Such radar measurements by the Arecibo Radio Telescope in Puerto Rico had previously discovered polar ice deposits on distant Mercury, but similar signals from our Moon are absent.

Apple Helps Napster
Did Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) fear Napster, or what? How else to explain the official press release yesterday, explaining -- in an almost "hey, look at me!" fashion -- that "Music fans purchased and downloaded 1.5 million songs from Apple's iTunes Music Store during the same period that Napster reported selling 300,000 songs during its first week of operation."

Microsoft's Antitrust Settlement Sharply Questioned
Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly said the settlement was so wrong-headed that its approval by U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly represented an abuse of her discretion.
Led by the Attorney General of Massachusetts, Microsoft's antitrust adversaries had another day in court to protest the provisions of the settlement the company worked out with the Bush administration. The antitrust battle was joined Tuesday in oral arguments before the six-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia.

I will be going to Manchester United on April 9 or 8 and stay there for 10 days to play soccer with my team and get trained in the Manchester United Stadium with the Manchester United staff. It is going to be so fun! I'm even going to stay in a hotel for 10 days by myself in 1 room and my whole team is staying in that hotel too.

We are currently training, A LOT like I have practice all week except for Fridays and Wednesdays but that dosn't matter to me because I love soccer! Today I also had a game and I scored a goal we won 3-2 against this team called The Valley. I changed to Dartmouth United for soccer they have such a better coach then Cole Harbour.

Casio's New toy
First Look: Casio Xfer Splash Proof TV
TechTv- Bathtubs and TVs make a deadly mix. But to some people "deadly" also means "totally cool." I'm sure Casio meant the latter when it released a splashproof wireless television. Casio's Xfer Splash Proof Wi-Fi TV, one of the latest Japanese gizmos to invade the bathroom, lets you watch the tube in your tub in relative safety. Tonight on "Fresh Gear," see Becky Worley disrobe to test it out.
