Flight delayed by terror alert? Watch World Trade Center

A Yahoo! News top tip

Security for virtualized datacentres

You know how it is - you're at Heathrow en route to New York when an announcement comes over the Tannoy that some blokes have been arrested for buying three cans of lighter fluid in one go at their local corner shop and, accordingly, the entire UK is on Defcon al-Qaeda/Taliban Critical Red and you'll have to wait three days in the airport before being allowed onto a plane in nothing more than your underwear having been biometrically swabbed, packed through a millimetre-wave body scanner and relieved of your toothpaste.
