  • Slashdot covers the high ranking of Eminem’s latest on Gracenote – before the CD had been released. See yesterday’s links for more information and links to the ZDNet article.

  • I missed this overblown article at the New York Times discussing security and how easily it seems that digital security can be circumvented.
  • The New York Times has an article on the FBI’s screwup in the use of Carnivore; more post-9/11 finger-pointing, I know, but also more evidence that people really are out there reading your e-mail. Slashdot also has a discussion; and there’s an article at The Register too.

  • EETimes reports that there’s a growing coalition among the Pacific Rim countries to deploy an alternative (and royalty-free) format to DVD. Slashdot has a lot to say about it, too.

  • ZDNet has an interview with Gateway’s Ted Waitt on his stand against the CBDTPA.
