The group claimed that they have breached into a database of a big U.S. cyber security contractor linked to the FBI. On Friday morning, Anonymous kept their word by leaking a heap of classified documents obtained from the security contractor Man Tech International.

Nokia Tablet Concept, By Gregory Pizzato

Gregory Pizzatto, the man behind the Nokia BlackBerry concept, once again came up with an innovative concept. However, it is the tablet with the Nokia branding that he designed this time.

The Nokia tablet features a 10 inch screen and a 3D camera. The specific model is available in two colors, the black piano finish and a silver one.

The only real guess is what kind of operating system would be used on the new Nokia concept. The speakers implanted on the back side look bizarre, as if they were copied from some dummy and pasted there on the original.

Finally, the time has come to reward the infamous hacking organizations. Will it be LulzSec or Anonymous? Both the groups have been nominated for Pwnie Awards 2011. Thus far, they are going nose to nose in the category for the most destructive, extensively publicized or entertaining hack of the year.

iPad-Friendly Facebook App Blocked!

The much-anticipated and apparently leaked Facebook app for iPad had a short life. The crack was discovered by TechCrunch. The app was actually a modified version of the already available Facebook iPhone app.

Facebook didn’t really like the leaked application and has now blocked the app. Facebook doesn’t want the app to be used before they officially release it.

If you are the fortunate one to have already activated the app, you can keep using it. The activated app can still be used but those who haven’t early done the hacking cannot activate it any longer; they will have to wait for Zuckerberg and Co to officially release the app.
