This is a supreme sports car parking job. But then again, that is a supreme sports car, so maybe it's ok.

Yes. I would write noir detection fic stories set in Amtrak on them.

The CSS Shapes specification has gone to Last Call, which means that hopefully it will get to Candidate Recommendation (the last step before becoming an official W3C Recommendation), in a matter of weeks.

There were a whole host of syntax changes in the process of getting to Last Call, and I've written a post that summarizes most of them.

You know you’re getting acclimated when you go outside, figure it’s not that cold out there, and then check the temp and find out it’s 28F.

At least they believe in insulating your houses out there, so it's not nearly as bad when you're indoors.

This is awesome. The moral of this story is that if you're clever, you can catch anything, no matter how fast it is.

Dear Mac users: 10.9.2 is out, and it finally fixes the SSL issue. So if you're running Mavericks, you should upgrade as soon as you can.

The bug isn't present in iOS 5 nor OSX 10.8 btw. (Just saying for completness's sake).

If you have an iOS device, you should upgrade it now to 6.1.6 or 7.0.6. There's a quite serious security bug that's fixed by these updates.

If you're running OS X, unfortunately, there is no patch yet. You can mitigate it somewhat by using Firefox or Chrome for browsing the web until a patch does come out.

If you want details, follow the link, it has lots.

If you have an older Android phone, be careful, there's an exploit in the wild for the WebView and Android browser. Best advice if you can't get your vendor to patch it? Use Chrome, Firefox, or Opera instead of Android Browser, if you aren't already.

(If you have Android 4.2 or greater, you are safe from this exploit)

Some ad libraries misuse addJavascriptInterface method so it is not just limited to the browser. It is potentially any app which calls up a webview and then has the addJavaScriptInterface set up to give access to internal objects (any one will suffice given the reflection example). 
For Android 4.2 and above you have to worry about developer misuse of the @JavascriptInterface annotation.

I was going to play a game with my kids, but the disk drive in the Wii didn't work. So it turned into showing the kids what's inside session instead. Too bad it doesn't look like there's anything obviously wrong with the drive, but I think I've already got a replacement lined up, thanks to an awesome friend.

+Jose Chung I haven't seen that, but they're not at an age where they would find the binary even remotely interesting. Maybe in a few years.
