We all know how Google Maps Streetview works. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could move around without going from one still picture to another? That’s what Microsoft promises in their latest attempt to topple the king of all things search. Once they drop the silverlight, I think Microsoft can expect widespread adoption.

If you’re thinking of ATM skimming as clunky hardware that’s easy to detect, think again. Taped on hardware and bulky card swipe gadgets are a thing of the past.

The worst situation is where two NFS file systems are mounted in a parent-child relationship.
