Tonight, around midnight, you may see some nerds running around in cloaks and bare feet. The destination will be the movie theater of course, for the first showing of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." The film promises to be full of special effects -- not all of them visual. There are a lucky few who will be watching the movie in theaters fitted with new speaker technology from Dolby called Atmos. Plus, an IP troll targets Germans who watch porn online. And, the challenges facing Adobe after a security leak last month exposed usernames and passwords.
