A few tidbits today's daily perusal of Slashdot that set the geeky part of my brain all a-flutter.
- RFID viruses - apparently scanning a mere 127 bytes of data (if it's the right data) can really mess up a database. Sounds like RFID systems need more data validation.
- HP's wireless memory chip - Doesn't store much yet, but it has WiFi! How cool is that?
- A Dragonlance movie! - Dragonlance has long been one of my favourites in the D&D inspired books. Now it's being turned into an animated movie! Ooooo...
- Mercury atomic clocks - NIST's current atomic clocks are based on cesium atoms and are pretty accurate (1 second per 70 million years). This proposed mercury clock would stretch that out to 400 million years. How's that for accuracy?
- 3.5 TB NAS - Outgeek all of your friends with one of these and 5 750 GB drives sitting on your desk. Enough to start any geek drooling.
