Mac's Don't Have Viruses... Are you Sure?

Security firm Sophos has discovered a modified variant of the well known darkComet Remote Access Trojan (RAT) that not only affects Windows PCs, but the Mac OS X platform too. Interestingly enough, the nefarious Trojan readily admits it's not yet finished, which could be indicative of more underground programmers finally taking notice of Mac's increased market share. In its current form, Sophos senior security adviser, Chester Wisniewski, describes the Trojan as "very basic" in nature with a mix of English and German in the UI.

Samsung Galaxy S2: Dual-Core, 1GB RAM, 8MP Camera

I've been waiting on this phone ever since rumors about it started flying all over the net. I'm very pick when it comes to dropping some serious cash on anything so I research the crap out of it. The Pros, the cons, and what I think the phone needed. Two cons for far: STILL no LED indicator and still no dedicated camera button (I can live without dedicated button). So far it's been said to only work on AT&T which sucks because I'm pretty sure the Vibrant did a lot better in terms of sales and sevice on T-Mobile's network. I just hope they release different flavors for the big 4.

Intel's Valentine's Day Gift: Non-Defective 6-Series Chipset

News and rumor site Fudzilla is reporting that Intel will begin shipping the B3 stepping for its 6-series chipset part by Monday, February 14th. For those of you who live in a cave under a rock on another planet, the original 6-series chipset contained a "design flaw" that affected several SATA ports. Only SATA ports 0/1 were unaffected, as well as those that might have been provided by a third-party (like Marvell, for instance). The B3 stepping is supposed to address this.

Minimalist ADW Launcher Theme

My favorite theme so far. I'm a huge fan of minimalist designs. I had to download two different themes and switch out the icons for the look I wanted. Still prefer Vanilla Android over everything. What are your favorite themes for your computer or phone?

Blogger App. for Android

It literally took me about 15 seconds to see this app still needs a considerable amount of work. You can only see mobile blog posts (such as this one) and I can't seem to find a way to see my followers or anything of the sort. If all you want to do is post and nothing else, this is the app for you. Me, on the other hand, would love to experience the full power (atleast 70%) of Blogger on this app. If Facebook can do it, so can Google.
My rating:
2 out of 5 stars

P.S. If you are following me and I'm not following you, chances are I couldn't find a link to your blog. Send me the link through a message. Thanks.
P.S. II: If you post an image on the app. it will display below the post. There is no way of changing that as of yet.

Sandy Bridge Mobo's Pulled from Shelves

Intel yesterday announced it discovered a design issue in its 6-Series chipsets intended for Sandy Bridge processors and opted to halt shipments of new boards. News of the flaw spread almost immediately across the Internet, though it took some time for popular vendors to pull potentially affected motherboards from their virtual store shelves. Today is a different story.

Intel, We Have a Problem

Santa Clara, we have a problem. That's the message Intel engineers had to deliver to company execs after discovering a "design issue" in the company's 6-Series chipsets. The issue is severe enough that Intel decided to halt shipments while it implements a fix.
"In some cases, the Serial-ATA (SATA) ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD drives," Intel said in a statement.
