St Pete's gets to announce a new arrival, but he has to do it like the Notre Dame PA guy-"Or-land-oh-WOOOOOOOOOOOL-ridge." Dying of heart trouble at 52; time flies, it doesn't seem like it was three decades ago he and Bill Laimbeer were taking the Irish deep into the top 20 with Digger Phelps at the helm.
Some white-hat hackers are on the job, following up the Stuxnet worm that messed with Iranian nuke processors with a Flame malware that does a lot of spying on its host. At least it seems white-hat from here, since Iranian computers are the most affected; thus, fingers are pointing at the US and Israel as possible writers. One can only hope the Iranians or other enemies of the US (like the Anonymous folks who trash US policy) are doing the same thing back at us, since the really good hacks go undetected.
This is a bit old, but this story on Google buying Motorola's phone business seems troubling. What's odd is that it was the Chinese government giving the last crutial blessing with the proviso that the Android system stay available to other phone makers rather than become a propriatry Motorola thing.
Vertical intergration need not be bad for the market, but when Google's energy will be focused somewhat onto the Motorola brand, it weakens the rest of the market, letting Microsoft have an easier time of dominating the remainder of the non-Apple universe.
