Sony PlayStation Network Hack Resulted In Stolen User Data, but Credit Card Data Was Encrypted.

Sony's PlayStation Network was attacked and lots of personal data was leaked including birth dates, names, e-mail address and it was originally though the hackers had also got hold of user credit card details. The company’s officials reported that “The entire credit card table was encrypted and we have no evidence that credit card data was taken.” But while the encryption is nice, depending on what type it is, it could still be hacked.

Google Docs is available now for Android versions 2.1 and higher

Google has released a Google Docs app, allowing you to compose and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on your Android device. This Android’s native app gives users a bunch of new features that aren't available through the web browser, and it’s available for free through the Android Market (in English only at the moment). The app allows you to share items you have stored within Google Docs with the contacts you have in your phone from within the application.

Here is a list of some of the news features:
  • Designed for Android to save you time finding your docs
  • Edits to your documents appear to collaborators in seconds
  • Make quick changes to spreadsheets
  • View your documents, PDFs, images and more.
  • Upload and convert files to the Google Docs format
  • Take a photo of printed text and convert it to a Google document

Among all these amazing features, perhaps the most notable addition is the new ability to convert words found in images into a document with editable text via Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This feature breathes new life into printed text and may prove deadly to old-school book stores that invite customers to lounge around sampling books and magazines.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be offline support at the moment. Maybe offline support will be added in the future.
