Tech News Roundup

  • The Kyoto protocol comes into effect!

  • The SHA-1 hashing algorithm used to verify file integrity has been broken. Eek.

  • There was a proposed eBay strike planned to go ahead from this friday, but it doesn't look like it's going to go ahead. The anger erupted after eBay hiked it's fees, it's since backed down a bit and lowered some of them.

  • A new broadband co-operative has been formed, with 17 small ISP's signing up, allowing them to bulk buy hardware and lower costs, which is good news for us I think.

  • Apple gets all angry, sueing three journalists for refusing to release papers that could identify the source of a leak. Chill out Apple, it's all good publicity.
