How I built a zero energy cost, zero carbon home server

Chris Pollard
FAIL

Just plugging it into the wall would save most of the £1000 electricity bill

Plug the server into the wall for almost the same saving I'm guessing. No solar power needed.

Hackers declare war on international forensics tool

Chris Pollard

Hmm

As far as I can tell this tool doesn't do anything with favourites.... or browsing history. It just dumps running processes, IP address, netstat etc to a text file. I guess its supposed to show what a computer is doing NOW so it can be switched off and sent back to the lab and examined in detail.

Apple tablet spooks world of PCs

Chris Pollard
WTF?

Not convinced

I'm not convinced people need a £800 ipod touch which doesn't fit in your pocket. Even more so if apple go down the "app store / itunes store" evil genius route to milk cash out of their customers.
