SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: December 31 2010

Last day of the year! What a year it was! In the morning of this last day of the epic year 2010, our first news story comes from the hacker world, where a brand new BitTorrent-based DDoS tool is introduced as "Lying to the Neighbours." Next, Apple files for a patent on screen-off gesture controls on the iPod Nano, AliveECG connects to your iPhone to keep track of heart, and you can now feel free to load Android onto your HTC HD2 (WinMo 6.5) via a brand new NAND level hack. Hackers of /b/ have to watch their back as FBI raids ISPs looking for servers used in Anonymous DDoS attacks. An RR Auction lets loose large bits of US Outer-Space history while NASA finds more cracks in Discovery fuel tanks but keeps launch on track. On a smaller scale, grab yourself a MeeGo 1.1 install on your HTC HD2. Fun! All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up!
