Mitnick sentenced, sort of

Media outlets gave straight-faced coverage to the restrictions US District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer placed on hacker Kevin Mitnick as she pronounced sentence: In addition to 46 months in prison and a $US4,125 fine, Mitnick is not to be seen circling near any Net gadgetry. That is, no PC, no cell phone, no TV, no Net access. "No way" would seem more like it, although the judge offered Mitnick some leeway. He can use his favorite tools as long as he has a note from his probation officer.
