Uhh... Yeah. This (once it's done being slashdotted) just _screams_ 'beat the shit out of anyone you see walking in to your company with one of these'. Cheap script-kiddie-ware. It's a USB-powered, PowerPC-driven handheld PC that hijacks the monitor, KB, mouse, and NIC of any machine it's connected to via USB. Not like any self-respecting network administrator hasn't already secured anything of any value with at least some user authentication, but that's just cheap. Sure, you could just walk in with a laptop and plug it in to the network, but this makes it look like you're sitting at a mundane company desktop, with some wacky cable coming out of the back and in to your pocket. Any self-respecting hacker would bring his own PC, there's no way you're running brute force apps on that tiny thing. What's really sad is the thinly-veiled "0wn any machine" quote on the front page.
