It's not just the Pentagon, multinationals and high profile politicians who get their computers hacked these days - media organisations are clearly also targets, as the Syrian Electronic Army's recent attacks on AP, CBS News and the Guardian show.

Fergie's time called via Twitter | Media Monkey

www.guardian.co.uk
And so it came: the final curtain on the most successful managerial career in world football, announced not in a frenzied press conference, nor in a ceremonial farewell on the Old Trafford pitch - but in a 97-character tweet. Such is the modern way, the official confirmation of Sir Alex...

Nokia ad promotes peace in our time | Media Monkey

Always nice to see a bit of self-aware advertising.

Another delectable display of Daily Mail digital double standards on its website.
