Throw away your digital picture frames

Surely time itself has warped and it’s suddenly April 1st. Come on, if you read the following, wouldn’t you first think it was a hoax, as did I? Virus from China, the gift that keeps on giving An insidious computer virus recently discovered on digital photo frames has been identified as a powerful new Trojan…

Bugged Canadian coin story is...wait for it...BOGUS!

Surely you’ve heard, too many times by now, about the radio transmitters “discovered” in some Canadian coins. From the moment I first read about it, the steamy stench of pasture patties loomed large in the air. I watched in amazement as the story grew and the apparent credibility so many “journalists” ascribed to it! Well, the United…

iPods spread disease?

Well well. Looks like a few new iPod owners are getting infected when they attach their players to their computers. I’ll quote the first paragraph from Apple’s web site: We recently discovered that a small number – less than 1% – of the Video iPods available for purchase after September 12, 2006, left our contract…

Must be a slow news day: reporter writes 100% crap

Imagine my surprise to read that Microsoft is removing NAP from Windows Vista! Does this guy actually get paid money to write this drivel? The particular folks quoted in the article all have their own agendas, of course. News flash: we aren’t dropping NAP. It’s in the product now, we’re actually running it on part of…

Mythbusters beat "unbreakable" fingerprint door lock

My good friend Jamie Sharp sent me this link today. It’s amazing: watch how Adam and Jamie easily defeat a fingerprint lock the manufacturer claims has never been broken. As if to snub the claims, they break it three times! Supposedly it monitors pulse, sweat, temperature, and other attributes. First, Adam obtains an impression of…

Yes, everyone knows you're a dog

Amazing how long the legs are on the AOL search debacle. Of course, we in the online community often beat such storeis to death, if only because they deserve it! Recently Kim Cameron posted the search history of user 16006693, which flits “from politics, to retirement, to politics, to religion, to sex, quickly back to religion…

File under: "You've got to be kidding!"

Today I upgraded the brain on my i-mate K-JAM. Which, of course, requires a hard reset, meaning that I get to spend a relaxing day re-installing and configuring all my applications. Usually when I do this (too frequently, it seems) I browse around for new and improved software. While perusing www.pocketgear.com for updated travel-related software, I stumbled…

A CEO who should be fired

So the CEO of an important customer of ours (no, I won’t tell you who it is) claims to be, um, “very technical” and therefore keeps his own Windows domain and refuses to be part of the corporate forest. Go ahead, take a moment to express your astonishment; it took me about a full minute…

New site at the top of my favorites list

You know, stupid security abounds. I just discovered this site today, and I plan to become a regular visitor — and probably a contributor, too! I encourage you to explore it and enjoy. Oh, some advice: it probably would be unwise to read an offline archived version of this site on an airplane. 🙂 Stupid…
