Robots unleased on English Village this Month.

Easy, easy, it's just a contest called the MOD GUARD CHALLENGE and is the U.K. Ministry of Defense's counterpart to the U.S. DARPA Challenges, except it's military robots that compete against one another instead of robotic cars.

XP Not Dead Yet!

From Engadget:

Engadget Site:
HP's got some new 2133 configs out as of tonight, including options for "downgrading" to Windows XP on models over $700 -- more or less as expected. They're up to eight base configs ranging from $500 to $820, so if you've been thinking of picking one up you've certainly got plenty of options to choose from.

A Hacker Site, I won't tell you where, has an article that shows how you can make a working copy of a key with just a cell-phone photograph. A Step-by-Step How-To.

Really, Do the Bad Guys Really Need This kind of Help?

I don't think so.

Wingman, Way Out!
