"Microsoft's Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor, or COFEE, is thumb drive-based tool set to assist in the decryption of data that law enforcement officials suspect is involved in a crime. Microsoft says COFEE does not constitute a back door to its BitLocker encryption, but privacy advocates worry that what can be used can also be abused -- especially if it's all on a tiny, easily-lost thumb drive."

Now that's funny!  -Carl

"I can understand wanting some tunes while riding your bike. But watching movies while you pedal away is probably not a great idea. The up side is, you’ll have something to do while the EMTs are trying to untangle your legs from your bike spokes."

"CinemaNow's new mobile site lets users browse content, view trailers and buy movies while on the go. Instead of downloading to the users' phones, however, the mobile site sends the content to their home computers, set-top boxes or other devices with CinemaNow's Media Manager technology. It turns the phone into the box office rather than the movie theater itself."

Therefore, preventing restaurant-associated foodborne disease is an important task of public health departments. According to a new article the public is generally unaware of the frequency of restaurant inspections and the consequences of poor inspection results."
