re: the Morrissey/Diana thing: it gets better. The author of the conspiracy theory posted this description of his life so far. If this is not a carefully thought out hoax, then he is quite an exemplar of psychoceramicity. (Pity he can't afford to get his theory published as a book; it would look great on my bookshelf, right next to Jack the Ripper: Light-Hearted Friend).
Did miserablist pop band The Smiths foretell the death of Diana back in the 1980s, in lyrics, cover artwork and release details? This somewhat psychoceramic page claims so. (via NtK)
Some speculation on what IT might be. Could the mysterious, allegedly revolutionary invention be a personal jetpack? A robot dog? Or a means of downloading pizza?
The NSA have released details of a top-secret encrypted digital telephony system, used by the Allies in WW2. The system used two turntables to hold the encryption key on vinyl records, synchronised with a clock two orders of magnitude more accurate than a modern consumer CD player. Some implementation details are still missing, though (such as the sampling rate used, the speed and capacity of the vinyl records, &c); though nonetheless, this is rather impressive.
