Application security programs and practises

What gift do you give the Linux nut who has everything? Why, a programmable Linux mascot droid that spins around on its rump, that's what.

Tux Droid

Tux Droid: it squawks! It lights up! It codes Perl!

The ersatz felt-covered Tux is wireless and radio-controlled, courtesy of a fish-styled IR pick up and 2.4GHz transmitter unit that plugs into a spare USB port on your PC. He talks and is capable of relaying VoIP conversations and reading out RSS feeds.

Not enough? His arms flap and his eyes light up. Oh, the hours of pleasure to be had from this one...

Still not enough? Then use the bundled software - open source, natch - and your coding skills to get him working on whatever tasks you see fit.

And for one here's a product the not only works with Linux but only works with Linux. Mac and Windows can clear off out of it - they're not wanted here.

Now available in the UK, the Tux Droid costs £90 from Firebox.
