Title: AMD's high-end Zen CPU coming in late 2016 - CNET

AMD is finally ready to get back in the CPU fight against Intel, preparing a new Zen line of processors for late 2016 or early 2017.

[...] Codenamed "Summit Ridge," the eight-core, 16 thread Zen CPU made its first public appearance here in Taipei at Computex. The company claims the new processors will provide a 40 percent performance increase from AMD's Excavator chips.

Be sure to check CNET's Computex hub for all the coverage from the show floors.

As the New York Times is reporting, it seems the Feds managed to arrest a Russian hacker for, among other things, breaking into cash register systems and stealing credit card data. From the article:

Roman Valerevich Seleznev was arrested on charges that he hacked into cash register systems at retailers throughout the United States from 2009 to 2011. The Secret Service would not say whether he was tied to the recent attacks that affected the in-store cash register systems at Target, Neiman Marcus, Michaels and other retailers last year.The arrest of Mr. Seleznev provides a lens onto the shadowy world of Russian hackers, the often sophisticated programmers who seem to operate with impunity. As long ago as March 2011, the United States attorney's office in Washington State identified Mr. Seleznev, a Russian citizen, in a sealed indictment as "Track2," an underground alias that is an apparent reference to the data that can be pulled off the magnetic strips of credit and debit cards. That data includes enough basic information--like account numbers and expiration dates--to make fraudulent purchases. The indictment accuses Mr. Seleznev of hacking into the cash register systems of businesses across the United States and of operating computer servers and international online forums in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere where such stolen data is traded in the digital underground.

It was not yet clear how the Secret Service arrested Mr. Seleznev, and the United States attorney's office in Washington State declined to elaborate.

In other words, the Secret Service is mum about how they got this guy to do something as foolish as going to Guam, an American territory.

Hi Everybody! /drnick

NCommander was kind enough to code up a "notes" feature for stories in the story queue (similar to notes in the submission queue). It appears in a box below the "related stories" box. You need to click "update" for the note to preserver ("preview" seems to delete any un-saved notes).

Also, notes aren't currently preserved from submission - > story, but that is a desired feature as well.
