the top 10 most viewed super bowl ads

so i'm a little late to the party (not that i care much for the super bowl itself), but for a bit of fun, this youtube trends blog entry gives you some of the better ads that screened during the event. i'd seen a number of them before via facebook etc but a few were new to me and drew some smiles/chuckles. i guess if a company is going to pay the big bucks to have their ad shown at super bowl, they'd want to make sure their ad is worth watching.

android: remote protection from malware

i'd like to think i'm reasonably careful about the apps i install on my phone, but it's good to know that if i were to ever download malicious apps from the android market, and google found out about the app and removed it from the market, that they also have the ability to remotely remove the application from my phone, as they did in the march 2011 security issue.
