DRM or How To Punish Your Honest Customers

DRM (Digital Rights Management) does nothing. It stops no one from stealing your book, music, movie, comics. People who are going to break a copyright and post work on a pirate sight are going to do it no matter what. Companies who want to stop piracy (something akin to plugging your finger in the giant […]

Farewell Mr. Jobs

I am a technology geek. I know this is shocking. Probably none of you could tell. It started young for me. When all of my friends were buying the first Atari I was saving up paper route money to buy my first computer (A Commodore Vic 20). I was an early adopter of Apple products. […]

GameStop Suckage

I am going to let all my PC and console game friends in on a big secret. GameStop sucks harder than a Hoover. GameStop may be the single worse place to have to buy a video game in the known universe. GameStop has made a fortune ripping people off for years. Okay, that wasn’t really […]

Apple Police State

I stumbled across an article a few weeks back that talked about an amazing new technology being developed by Apple. It seems they want to put out a commercial device that would disable the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad from recording sound, taking pictures, or video. Apparently, the thought process behind this is to allow musicians […]

It’s A Small World

Social media has made the world a very tiny place. It’s why I have a good laugh anytime some scandal breaks because some “not so intelligent” person put pictures or words out into the world with the ridiculous notion they would remain a secret. I mean seriously people it is time to catch up. This […]

Weiner’s Wiener & Other Tales of Stupid

When stories first started appearing that New York Congressman Anthony Weiner had sent a picture of his love pump to some unfortunate soul on Twitter I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Twitter accounts get hacked all the time. I didn’t totally believe it but I like to wait for actual […]

Holy Hack Batman!

Holy hack Batman! After blasting away at Apple earlier this week, it took exactly one day for my privacy concerns in the age of technology to blaze back onto the front page. It appears Sony has suffered one of the biggest data thefts ever. Somebody hacked their servers and stole personal information of their online […]

Naughty, Naughty, Apple

You ever get the strange, creeping sensation that someone is watching you? You quickly turn around and look but no one is there. The feeling lingers in the pit of your stomach leaving you paranoid and uneasy. Well, I am here to tell you that you are not crazy. Your every move is being watched […]

Ooh Shiny iPad 2

It took awhile for Apple to ship it to me but my iPad 2 finally arrived on Monday. Now I am not saying I rushed home at lunch like a complete salivating technology geek (okay, I did rush home and there might have been some drool) but when FedEx notified me it had been delivered […]

New York Times Slapping Down the Paywall

They said they were going to do it and they have kept their word. Today, the New York Times slapped a paywall on their site effective March 28th in the United States (Canada gets a head start on the whole paying thing because, hell, whose afraid of Canada complaining). That intake of oxygen you heard […]
