FBI Security Warnings – Too Little, Too Late?

Earlier tonight, I ran across a press release from the FBI. As I read it, I nearly screamed out loud at my computer. In short, the release is warning computer users of the dangers of a malware infection commonly referred to as Zlob. This infection will cause popups on your desktop, warning you that you are infected, and should download such-and-such software to cure this problem. Welcome to our world, FBI folks… a tad late.

Best Tech of the Decade

With 2009 coming to a close this week, many blogs and tech sites are taking a look back at technology over the past decade. I’ve read several of these articles, and each one of them list Cloud computing in their top three. That doesn’t surprise me in any way… computing in the Cloud is a huge development, one that makes life a lot easier for us all.

What does surprise me is the fact that none of the bloggers can agree on anything else. Sure, there have been a lot of innovative, useful gadgets released in the past ten years. And, of course, each has been important in its own right. But did nothing other than the Cloud cause an impact on the World? Was there not a single other product worthy of making everyone’s lists? I happen to think there were.

Snowball Fight – or Police Standoff?

Earlier today, one prolific Twitter user in Washington, DC decided to take advantage of the recent snowfall to organize a giant snowball fight. Yousef Ali posted a Twitter message (as well as one to his blog), asking people in the area to join him at the corner of 14th Street and U Street for a snowball fight of epic proportions. Over 200 people showed up to the event, which was even publicized by the city’s department of transportation.

Passing motorists were getting involved by rolling down their windows and taunting the crowd until they would toss a snowball their way. Things were going well, with everyone having a fantastic time. No one was hurting anyone. No insults were thrown around. No one was in any type of danger… until a police officer charged the crowd with his gun drawn!

Comcast Buys NBC

nbc-logo1On Thursday, it was announced that Comcast will be buying a controlling share of NBC television. Bloggers around the world are speculating as to what this will mean for the future of television – both online and offline. Consumer Right’s groups are protesting to this deal quite loudly. They feel combining Comcast’s power over cable and Internet connections with NBCUs television stations and movie studio will give the conglomerate entirely too much control. Other encampments, meanwhile, applaud this move – hoping that the merger will bring even better programming to already strong NBC.
