Watch: CNN compares traditional Maori greeting to Chippendales and horny emus

How long does it take for the most trusted news source to turn a boring non-story into a racist, xenophobic nightmare?

About 13 seconds it turns out, and that’s only because CNN news correspondent Jeanne Moos takes her time narrating the intro.

The only thing surprising about this is that it wasn’t split-screened with the fucking plane.

How the eff does this get through editors and scripting, and make it through approval for broadcast.

Fingerprint lock in Samsung Galaxy 5 easily defeated by whitehat hackers

We expected we’d be able to spoof the S5’s Finger Scanner, but I hoped it would at least be a challenge. The S5 Finger Scanner feature offers nothing new except—because of the way it is implemented in this Android device—slightly higher risk than that already posed by previous devices.

This is a complete mockery of everything. Samsung is so busy to rush a copy of Apple to market, that they actually weaken user security to do so.

NSA Said to Exploit Heartbleed Bug for Years – Marco.org

If an organized hacker ring sabotaged security standards and major tech infrastructure for years, compromising the security of hundreds of millions of people and many governments including our own (and potentially causing billions of dollars in damages when these exploits were found by others), and exploited any flaws they found or created to spy on millions of people in the world including our own citizens, what should they be charged with?

Mass criminal sabotage, cybercrime, cyberwarfare, and computer fraud? Obviously.

Terrorism? Maybe, but not quite.

At what point do the NSA’s actions qualify as treason?

I’d say they’re well past that point.

So true.

Customer:“I open a document, file, print, wait for it to finish loading, then unplug the printer cable and carry it across the room to the printer while holding the ends up so the data doesn’t spill out, and plug it into the printer and it prints. And it worked like that yesterday.”


Just WOW!!

Unless you say something that a vocal portion of the public don’t like. Freedom of speech is NOT freedom of speech if it must meet your standards.

I said ‘wow,’ I wish we didn’t have a salary cap.

LeBron James, upon hearing about Miguel Cabrera’s new contract that guarantees him $292 million over the next 10 years.

Hard to feel bad for someone making $19 million a year, but pretty crazy how many baseball players are now making more than him.

I'm a .NET Software Engineer currently working for Electronics for Imaging, Inc., New Zealand. I enjoy elegant code, as well as hacking away at HTML5, CSS3, JS et al. and am passionate about social media and mobile technologies.

In my down-time I have been known to allow myself to be dragged away from a computer in order to read a book, or even talk to real people!

Away from computers, I love to cook for friends (and my lovely wife, Naomi) and spend long afternoons dragging into the evening sharing a good wine or two.

I've built sqwi.sh, the WallaBee Store twitter feed, and 1plus1equals1.co.nz amongst other things.
