A 1937 rare model of Bugatti Type 57s lying in a garage since early 1960's was auctioned at in paris for a whopping 3.4 million euros ($4.4 million).
The supercar was so ahead of its time it could go up to 130 mph (209 kph) when most other cars of its era topped out about 50 mph (80 kph).
This particular car is especially valuable because it was originally owned by Earl Howe, a prominent British race car driver, and because its original equipment is intact, so it can restored without relying on replacement parts.

The "Windows Genuine Advantage" program, which turns the user's screen black if the installed software fails a validation test, is Microsoft's latest weapon in its war on piracy in China, where the vast majority of 200 million computer users are believed to be using counterfeit software.
While most of the people argue that Microsoft should have violating people's rights by trespassing into their computer a few of the lawyers termed Microsoft as the biggest hacker in China with its intrusion into users' computer systems without their agreement or any judicial authority.
