In the first shot of what we can only wildly assume is a massive war between Friendster and Facebook, Facebook has been rendered unavailable with "DNS Not Available" error messages to the 250 Million people who access the popular social networking website on a daily basis.

If you need your social networking fix here's a tip. The surreptitious back door to Facebook's website is This accesses the websites mobile version which sees less traffic that the primary address. As a bonus, circumvents many an office firewall too.

Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 2.5-inch USB 3.0 Enclosure - Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 2.5-inch USB 3.0 Enclosure

"Shawn just recently finished up the review of the Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 3.5-inch USB 3.0 Enclosure, and today I have the exact same product but in a 2.5-inch frame. This enclosure is sized for smaller notebook drives and designed for fast storage on the go. With up to 4800Mb/s theoretical transfer rate, USB 3.0 should be perfect for a solid state drive even, and whereas the 3.5-inch enclosure doesn't quite fit an SSD correctly, this 2.5-inch version will. Not to mention how much easier it will be to carry around. Immediately we can tell from the pictures that the 2.5-inch version looks nearly identical to its bigger brother, with the same mirror finish and chrome trim, gloss black color and blue LED lighting. The aluminum frame is of course smaller to accommodate the notebook drives, but other than that it's hard to tell the two apart."
