Cyber warfare is very much a real thing today, with President Obama responding to Russian cyber activity by expelling a number of Russian diplomats from the USA, among other sanctions.

Here's a cool in-depth look at Intel's groundbreaking 8008 processor. Intel's groundbreaking 8008 microprocessor was first produced 45 years ago.1 This chip, Intel's first 8-bit microprocessor, is the ancestor of the x86 processor family that you may be using right now. I couldn't find good die photos of the 8008, so I opened one up and took some detailed photographs. These new die photos are in this article, along with a discussion of the 8008's internal design. Discussion here in our Retro forum.

Android modders will be sad to hear of the demise of CyanogenMod. This isnít the disaster that losing Alan Rickman or Leonard Cohen was, but is a pretty sad development, as CyanogenMod brought a lot of old phones to life, especially those whose manufacturers refused to provide further Android updates for them.

Wired have five achievable security resolutions for the New Year. The challenge of protecting yourself can feel so overwhelming that itís tempting to give up on security altogether. Thereís no disputing that adding more protection to your life does require some work and inconvenience. But emphasis is on some. Just like locking your bike instead of simply leaning it against a tree, taking digital security precautions is slightly annoying but very doable. So do it!

Python fans will enjoy this Radio National interview with Eric Idle and John Cleese. When the Monty Python team came up with The Lumberjack Song, it was their first song. But over the years the role of music increased in the Python output on TV and film, and in live shows, and has since spawned musicals like Spamalot. Andrew Ford talked to Eric Idle and John Cleese about music and songs, getting the rhythm right and the joys of Roget's Thesaurus.
