The US Justice Department said late Thursday the charges target an operation that sent out tens of millions of unsolicited e-mails with sexually explicit embedded images and links to pornographic websites.

The nine-count indictment returned in Phoenix, Arizona, names Jennifer Clason, 32; Jeffrey Kilbride, 39; and James Schaffer, 39. They were charged with fraud and related activity under the federal CAN-SPAM Act and criminal conspiracy.

The indictment also charges Kilbride and Schaffer with interstate transportation of obscene material and money laundering.

Ubuntu tablet and smartphone: a personal "mini" review

Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now.
