Scientists are hoping that long landslides visible on Saturn's moon Iapetus may provide clues to understand similar movements here on Earth, in particular how earthquake fault lines often slip farther than expected.  Scientists have concluded that flash heating could cause the falling ice to move 10 to 15 times farther than expected.

Anonymity just became even scarcer, at least with YouTube.  YouTube is now recommending that you switch to your full name when posting videos and comments.  They will pull your real name from your Google+ account in fact.  Google+ has not been a big fan of anonymity and prefers to keep online comments free of pseudonyms to try to mitigate things like sexism, racism and other issues.  Now via a pop-up dialogue box YouTube will urge users to use their real names.

On the surface this looks like your typical blocky power strip, but under the hood this device is a full fledged hacking tool designed to let white hat hackers (the good-guy hackers) test the security level of a computer network whether wired or wireless.

The Power Pwn has an entire suite of hacking software built in, for testing Wi-Fi, ethernet, and Bluetooth.  You can add an optional 3G/GSM adapter whcih is compatible with SIM cards from AT&T, Vodafone, Oragne and GSM carriers in 160 countries.  The Power Pwn was partially funded by DARPA, which has a vested interest in protecting the governments networks, but with a pre-order price of nearly $1300, this might make the non-government regular person shy away.

Of its many specs it also includes 16GB of internal disk space, has a fully automated NAC/802.1x/RADIUS bypass.  All 8 outlets are fully functional.  It is preloaded with Debian 6, Metasploit, SET, Fast-Track, w3af, Kismet, Aircrack, SSLstrip, nmap, Hydra, dsniff, Scapy, Ettercap, Bluetooth/VoIP/IPv6 tools and more.

The thick and hazy atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, may hide a geological past similar to erosion seen on Earth according to a new study. 

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville studied images of Titan taken from the Cassini spacecraft and have investigated the erosion of its terrain over millions of years by rivers of liquid methane.
