Pwnie Express Releases Pwn Pad Ahead of Schedule 24

Posted by samzenpus
from the get-it-early dept.
An anonymous reader writes "The team at Pwnie Express released their Pwn Plug, which combined an off the shelf SheevaPlug with a feature packed open source firmware that turned it into an incredibly capable security tool. Then came the Power Pwn, which hid the same type of functionality into what looked like a standard power strip. Today they've launched their latest product, continuing along the same line of hiding cutting edge open source security tools in plain sight: the Pwn Pad."

    the same type of functionality into what looked like a standard power strip

    A few years ago, I remember a story on slashdot about how a con-man swindled some investors who thought they were supporting the development of a high performance broadband wireless technology. Demonstrations were arranged where data transmission occurred across a bay or some other body of water. When the scam was uncovered, it was discovered that a coax cable was disguised as a power plug and used to fake the data transmission. I have not been able to rediscover the story or anything similar to it. Do any old timers here remember any such caper?
