The smallest password cracking device

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

We wrote about the new iPhone last week, but these we only rumors. And now it is officially announced (on WWDC); the sales will start on June 17th (in the U.S.). Additional information is available at Apple web site: general and about iPhone 3.0 software update. But unfortunately, still no tech specs of its GPU; according to the above article, Maybe there is some truth to the rumors that Apple is using OpenCL. If that’s true, there will be (technical) ability to crack passwords on it, and the speed should not be disappointing.

News from the other side: Intel could Atomise handsets in two years. An era of portable password crackers is coming ;)

From COMPUTEX TAIPEI

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Sorry I did not write blog for some time… Just returned from one-week vacation at Rhodos (Greece).

I think you’re aware of COMPUTEX TAIPEI — the largest computer exhibition in Asia and the second largest in the world, next to CeBIT in Germany. It is already running; actually; today (June 6th) is the last day. But this year that was almost nothing really new/interesting (from password cracking point of view, I mean) there. Well, just something about NVIDIA Tegra and ION, Intel Atom and AMD DX11 GPU: here is some coverage. And of course, The Ladies of Computex: part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4; plus even some video :)
