A "master key" that could give cyber-thieves unfettered access to almost any Android phone has been discovered by security research firm BlueBox.

The bug could be exploited to let an attacker do what they want to a phone including stealing data, eavesdropping or using it to send junk messages.

How worrying is the discovery? http://bbc.in/15hODGx

Web site streams the sounds of a coffee shop!

I have always found coffee shops to be the best places to work. They seem to have the right combination of noise and activity for maximum productivity and creativity, according to science.
