BlueAvatar sent in an e-mail asking everyone to be cautious of a 4GB MP4 player that Aldi is currently selling as his contained a virus. It looked suspicious so I scanned it with clam and it came back as a trojan. I then uploaded it to Virscan.org (after renaming it so I didnt accidentially execute it) to double check. Results are here.

Following on from TweakTown's Guide to Buying Blu-rays from Overseas is the August 2008 Buying Guide. In the first of an on-going series, Ben takes a look at the best and latest overseas titles now available.

NordicHardware have coverage of the Advanced Overclocking Championship held in Berlin. As we were closing in on the end of the Advanced Overclocking Championship a tensed aura was hovering the room. Would Kinc and crotale managed to reclaim the lead from the Polish team?

A recent discussion hosted by NASA's CoLab included topics such as 'can someone own land on the moon?' and 'can one sell the resources gathered from the moon in a mining operation?'. Within the next 10 years, the U.S., China, Israel, and a host of private companies plan to set up camp on the moon. So if and when they plant a flag, does that give them property rights?

AirQ sent in this article on the 'Deus Ex Machina' – "a wearable motorbike that brings superhero-style transport into the real world." The pretentiously named vehicle clamps to the rider like Ripley's exoskeleton in Aliens, and will power them to 60 mph in just three seconds, topping out at 75 mph.

Apparently any Team Fortress 2 updates on the PS3 and the Xbox 360 may not be free. "On the PC side, we've done as many as four updates in a day, and that's great: we can respond very quickly." … "On the consoles, they want us to charge money for them, because that's in their model, and our model is very much more to grow the community by giving out free updates."

Matt sent in this timewaster for a lazy Sunday morning. Shadez: The Black Operations is the first in the series of this game. The player is placed into the role of General of a Mercenary force. This force has been hired by the governments around the world to fight the wars they do not want to fight or they don't want to declare this, keeping it top secret and out of the hands of the press.
