In other news, cheaper iPods and mini Macs were announced recently, making those devices accessible (maybe) to even starving students. Of course, I've actually used Mac OSX for a few days and I was left curiously unmoved (and the lack of a right clickable mouse drove me to distraction), but hey, it might yet grow on me.
And finally, it's completely unconfirmed, I can't replicate it but someone is reporting that gmail is hackable. Not much can be done from the point of the users, but it's worth reminding never trust sensitive information to email. And that meshes in nicely with how to secure Thunderbird email with OpenPGP.
