Meet The New Google

Added August 26, 2009 | Tags:

Google: If they ever make any change to their front page, it’s usually just a link to a new product/service or merely swapping out their logo to celebrate some event (including April Fool’s).

Why We Were Offline: The Coffee Desk 4chan DDoS

Added August 25, 2009 | Tags:

As I’m sure some readers noticed, we were temporarily offline for a few hours. Apparently, our recent article that spilled the beans on 4chan’s Facebook account compromises pissed off the lovely folks at 4chan.

The Internet Knows Everything: MIT PersonasWeb

Added August 24, 2009 | Tags:

Remember in the mid-90’s when people were absolutely paranoid about the Internet, believing that the government knew everything about us and that these “hackers” might be able to steal our information?

Added August 22, 2009 | Tags:

Adobe Flash Cookies: Hidden Web History

Added August 14, 2009 | Tags:

Think deleting your web history and cookies from within your web browser deletes all traces of where you’ve been and what you’ve been doing from the prying eyes of peers and advertisers? Think again. Adobe Flash has its own private storage within your computer which is inaccessible from any browser’s history deletion system – regardless […]

Is Chrome OS Too Orwellian Or Big Brother-ish?

Added August 13, 2009 | Tags:

We’ve talked and complained about Google on many other occasions within this blog, but with many discussions of Google also comes discussions of privacy, and the fact that Google aims to distribute an operating system should be no different – that is to say, not only is Google open to almost everything we do on […]

What Your Email Address Says About You

Added August 8, 2009 | Tags:

Email addresses are a bit of an anomaly nowadays: they’re used to identify you almost everywhere on the Internet, but they also trigger an almost immediate conclusion about your character when viewed by others. Here is a comparison of a few types of email, and what they say about you right off the bat. You […]
