Don’t forget to try to Stump the Soup

 

NASA sent what now?

In 1977 NASA sent a time capsule into space, which included 2 records full of “Human Life Sounds”. You can hear what they sent in the article, but do you think it was a good mix?

 

Apple Court Ordered To Unlock Texas Shooter’s iPhone SE

Last monday Apple was served with a search warrant for access to digital photos, emails and other documents on an iPhone SE that was used by the gunman who killed 27 people in a Texas church mass shooting.  Should Apple comply or is this a dangerous slippery slope for privacy?

 

The State Of Hawaii Investigating EA For “Predatory Practices”

“This game is a Star Wars-themed online casino,” Democratic State Representative from Hawaii Chris Lee said from the podium. “It’s a trap.”  What Lee is referring to is loot boxes in games should be classified as gambling.  Recently the Belgium Gaming Commision had declared the same thing.

 

Facebook stealing from Snapchat….again

After basically pillaging every cool feature users love from SnapChat it seems Facebook is now testing out the “Streaks” feature…Who cares how many days in a row you’ve sent messages to your friends. But we have to gamify everything instead of just enjoying personal connections right?

 

Addicted to your phone?

In the most face palm worthy move, there is a new “fidget spinner” for those that can’t stop swiping at their phones.

Cut out the dumb “Government Control of the Internet” explanation that made no sense. LOL.

 

Every Day Carry (EDC)

What do us geeks carry every day?  Tech?  Bags?  Bluetooth devices?  Earbuds? Chargers? Multi-tools?  Knives?  Why do we carry it?
