So... Google Reader shuts down in July.
We're living in a new kind of computing environment. Everyone has a device, sometimes multiple devices. It's been a long time since we have had this rate of change—it probably hasn't happened since th...

Gizmodo author recommends iPhone 5 users switch to WEP. Responds to security concerns w/ "you're not the Pentagon."

This is a grade A example of how most people are willing to trade security or quality for convenience.

I have some news for ya: if your new iPhone can't handle WPA encrypted WiFi, it's your phone that's broken - not the network.

If you have a Pandora account, I highly recommend using a throwaway password for it (assuming you don't do so already).

Why? Because Pandora doesn't even one-way hash their passwords. If your account is logged in on a computer, anyone who sits down at that computer can go and look up your password on Pandora's settings page.

Attached is an image that shows what that settings page looks like upon load - I haven't manually entered anything into the form fields and I don't use Chrome's auto-fill; the text in the fields is populated by Pandora.... including the plaintext of the password.

Things like this are why I wrote a blog post about how to do web app auth correctly:

Thanks to +Dan Boger for bringing this up.

Confirmed. Pandora: You are bad! Why do you even need to show that user password text field inside settings? That's a strange UI decision.

So, this is a thing, apparently. I'm actually rather concerned about the calls from officials to employ similar measures against the Chinese army. Does anyone in their right mind not think that China would retaliate?

I don't think China is as big a threat as people make it out to be.

No! No, OS X! Your filesystem doesn't support forward slashes in filenames, so you put your filenames through s|:|/| in Finder (and ban making files with colon characters from the GUI)! You are terrible!

If you have a LinkedIn account, change your password.
A leak of six million password hashes. allegedly from LinkedIn, is being collaboratively cracked and, due to the lack of precautionary salt, that process is far easier than it should be
