How would you like to use that GMail account for something more than just email. Maybe you’ve thought of sharing pictures through GMail or backing up some important software. Well now you can with GMailFS this brilliantly useful piece of software will allow you to mount a GMail account on your linux system as if it was a secondary harddrive.

According to this article on SecurityFocus, a company by the name of Star38.com will be selling caller ID spoofing. (In case you’ve never heard of this it’s called Orange Boxing in Phreaker circles) the article claims that the service will cost only $0.25 USD per call and $0.07 to $0.14 per minute. Regarding abuse of this service by less than honest ventures Star38 says that it will screen subscribers and initially only offer the service to liscenced private investigators, collection agencies and the like. The scary part (at least to me) is that this business does not appear to violate any criminal law. The service is slated to open up on September 1st.
