iPhone application: Shazam

Major props to Shazam for letting me use my iPhone to identify random loud music that was being played outside my apartment. It's extremely impressive, 'cause I'm on the third floor, and I think it was being played on the street level. Granted, I could hear the base and melody pretty clearly... but still, spiffiness!

And the music? Duel, by Bond.

I like strings. And the touch of classical melodies with techno.

[edit]
This is kinda pretty: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMdW1o8H9cc

Apparently this genre is "classical crossover music" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bond_(band)). Interesting.

This mail also contains an attachement, a so called report of their illegal activities. Ofcourse the attachement is malicious and appears to be a W32.Mytob@mm variant.

Sneaky tactic since many people actually do use P2P in order to get their (illegal) software from, so they will certainly open the attachement (if not removed by their Antivirus already) to see what exact activities are being logged.
If you recieve similar mail, delete it asap and certainly do not open the attachement.
