Affordable Network Attached Storage

I've been waiting for this for a long time. Fry's has the Tritton Technologies Simple NAS (TRI-NSS001) on sale for $99 with a $30 mail-in rebate. That's $100 before rebate, folks ... for a box that you can populate with a drive of any size ... and access over your network ... SMB (i.e. Windows) or FTP!

And, yes, Outpost.com has it, too. Same price, same rebate.

Got this info from this article on digg.

Firefox Vulnerable to Frame Injection Spoof

Desktop Pipeline reports in this article that Firefox is vulnerable to a bug that was first reported back in 1998. There's no word on that site when the bug will be fixed but they report that the problem can be circumvented if you close all other Firefox windows (and, assumedly, tabs) before opening a window to a secure site.
