North Korea may be helping Syria make a nuclear facility in Syria:

And it looks like Israeli commandos somehow got near enough to the nuclear facility in Syria and directed laser-guided munitions to destroy the facility, leaving a “big hole in the ground”:

After this happened, Syria appears to have placed an $8 mil order with Magal (a company with a perimeter defense solution, which happens to be an Israeli company) to protect several of their military facilities.

Sadly, 2 of the 7 US soldiers who wrote a NY Times Editorial questioning the way that the war was going were killed in Iraq in a vehicle accident:

Amazing news: Qualcomm won a 9- to 18-month reprieve on the ban on importing its chips, preventing the ban until the appeals process is over and giving them a lot of time for a workaround for Broadcom’s patents:;_ylt=AgqumE9Wl_97rwOZQVwzYRAjtBAF

Alcatel Lucent’s 2nd profit warning this year wiped off $2 bil (12.5%) from its market cap this morning:

The Chinese government is letting HP sell more smartphones in China:

The 2008 Beijing Olympics will not be using the latest in technology (XP instead of Vista, all wired networking instead of wireless, WAP instead of GPRS):
