Pioneer gets Sirius with new wearable radio

Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) and Pioneer Electronics are hoping to make some noise with its new XMp3 ($279.99; wearable satellite radio with MP3 playback functionality.
Billed as the smallest and lightest portable satellite radio, the 3.1-ounce XMp3 is the first with multi-channel recording capability, allowing users to schedule up to five channels of simultaneous recording. The 2GB of internal memory can hold up to 100 hours of commercial-free music, talk and sports programming.
Selecting what upcoming broadcasts to flag for recording is as easy as navigating through the new program guide –- a first for a portable satellite radio, says Pioneer –- whereby each channel shows its programming schedule up to two weeks in advance.
Similar to Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), the XMp3 automatically records the most recent 30 minutes of live programming, so at anytime listeners can replay what they just heard, as well as pause, fast-forward or rewind through this buffered audio.

Obama urges cellphone users to vote early

The Obama campaign has linked arms with ChaCha, a free mobile answers service, to urge people across the USA to vote early. Until election day, people who use ChaCha will receive a prompt that offers the option of getting more information on how and where to vote early. The campaign is limited to states where early voting is allowed: Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, Montana and Wisconsin.
How it works: In North Carolina, for example, ChaCha users will see an ad, tagged to the end of responses, that reads: “To vote early, reply OBAMA.” If a user responds affirmatively, he or she will receive a message back that reads: “You can vote early for Barack Obama in North Carolina. Vote today! Find out how at 888-123-1234 or visit on your computer. Vote now!” The general election is Nov. 4.
This is the second time that the Obama campaign has turned to wireless to get the word out. In the summer, just before the Democratic National Convention, th…

Economic woes hit electronic retailers

Circuit City is considering shutting about 150 stores to avoid bankruptcy, says a report in today's Wall Street Journal. The Richmond, Va.-based electronics chain has been struggling, losing $404 million in its most recent quarter. Circuit City has 714 stores in the U.S., and another 772 in Canada.
Circuit City's problems aren't entirely linked to the recent economic malaise. The company has battled everything from increased competition online to Wal-Mart's beefed up electronics department.
But it's not a great sign for a robust holiday shopping season, which most retailers rely on to turn a profit for the year. Electronic sales were flat during back-to-school, the other big buying season, says researcher NPD.
Another worrisome sign: rival Best Buy's recent announcement that same-store sales fell 2% in September.
But there still is hope that the holidays may at least be decent. Electronics are the No. 5 most desired type of gift this year, after apparel, toys, movi…

Sony delays LittleBigPlanet for fear of offending Muslims

Sony has delayed for one week the worldwide release of the much-anticipated video game LittleBigPlanet because the PlayStation 3 contains music that may offend Muslims.
Originally scheduled to be out today, the game will be shipped next week and available at some retailers Oct. 27. "Sorry for the delay, and rest assured, we are doing everything we can to get LittleBigPlanet to you as soon as possible," says Sony's Patrick Seybold on the PlayStation blog.
The problem? A licensed background music track, Tapha Niang, performed by Grammy Award-winning Malian musician Toumani Diabate, quotes two verses from the Quran. Many Muslims consider mixing music and scripture to be offensive.
The translated lines say, "Every soul shall have the taste of death," and "All that is on Earth will perish."
The song will be removed and replaced, Seybold says. A downloadable patch will automatically delete and replace the song in any copies that happen to be sold.

New team to fight cybercrime

McAfee taking its fight against cybercrime to a new level.
Today, it unfurled the McAfee Initiative to Fight Cybercrime, a wide-ranging plan that calls for action from law enforcement, academic institutions, government, the security industry and others to step up investigations and prosecutions of cybercrime.
McAfee is creating the McAfee Cybercrime Advisory Council, a group of experts to be chaired by former White House Cybersecurity Adviser Howard Schmidt. Professors Ian Brown, of Oxford University, and Lillian Edwards, of Sheffield University, have agreed to join the council, along with Parry Aftab, founder and manager of WiredSafety, the world's largest cybersafety help group.
McAfee also is announcing a new McAfee Cybercrime Fighter Grants program and Cybercrime Assistance Unit. It has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into its foray.
"Things are turning (in the fight against cybercrime)," McAfee CEO Dave DeWalt says. "We have a start, but we feel so many m…

Security flaw in Amazon Kindle

I loved my Amazon Kindle e-reader, but learned the hard way that it has absolutely no security provisions to protect personal information if you lose it.
Anyone who picks up your device has full access to any personal documents you may have on it. Do you use the cool feature that allows you to email documents to your Kindle? I did. And guess what? The new Kindle owner has access to all those documents.
Kindle does allow you to go to Amazon and turn off your one-click buying, which will keep a thief from running up a tab on your account. But it does not allow you to password protect your information. And there's no encryption either.
So if you are sending sensitive information to your Kindle, you might want to think twice.

The Force is with BioWare

A couple of weeks back in this space, we discussed an imminent announcement by LucasArts and Edmonton-based BioWare about the development of a massively-multiplayer online role-playing game for the PC.
As expected, Star Wars: The Old Republic has been in development for some time and is set in the same timeframe as BioWare’s 2003 Xbox hit, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. In the new game, players will be able to play as Jedi, Sith or as other roles, with an emphasis on collaborative gaming with others.
"Traditionally, massively multiplayer online games have been about three basic game-play pillars: combat, exploration and character progression," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, general manger and CEO of BioWare, in a company release.
"In Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’re fusing BioWare's heritage of critically-acclaimed storytelling with the amazing pedigree of Lucasfilm and LucasArts, and adding a brand-new fourth pillar to the equation: story. At the same time, we will s…

Microsoft issues emergency patch for giant security hole

Discovery of a gaping security hole in all Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 computers prompted Microsoft on Thursday to issue a rare emergency security patch. The tech giant normally issues security fixes on the second Tuesday of the month. It did so on Oct. 14.
But this newly discovered vulnerability is a whopper. It harks back to the type of yawing Windows flaws that made computing so dicey in 2003 and 2004. Back then bragging-rights hackers launched globe-spanning, headline-grabbing Internet worms such as MSBlast and Sasser.
In fact, the new flaw is in the same mundane Windows component -- Remote Procedure Call -- that was at the root of the infamous MSBlast worm. MSBlast, you may recall, corrupted at least 25 million PCs and probably exacerbated an Eastern seaboard blackout. MSBlast also contained an embedded message to "Billy Gates," chiding the world's most famous tech tycoon to "stop making money and fix your software."
Like the 2003 RPC fla…
