Just listened to Windows Weekly, and Leo had forgotten Tim Cook's Fridge/Toaster comment. Microsoft remembers +Leo Laporte, Microsoft. Remembers. https://youtu.be/xgyg1Ywcdc4?t=4320

The past two days have been full of gratitude, prayers of thanks and celebrations (with resting in between, I promise). I started writing a few posts to put down my thoughts about what, at that time, was our new reality. It w...

I know people will shout 'SQRL' or biometrics, but in the meantime is Snowden's take on passwords.

SQRL shows a lot of promise.  One of the primary guys that developed FIDO said that SQRL was the most well thought out authentication scheme he's ever seen, even including his own FIDO.  That said, it's very new and isn't really used anywhere yet and it remains to be seen if it will survive attempts to exploit unforeseen vulnerabilities.

In the meantime, I use 2FA anywhere I can and use KeePass to store my crazy-long passwords for sites (a different one for each site).  I also try to use the high ASCII characters on sites that support them.

Mainly popular science and for the curious, and just for general excellent discussions I see two of my favourite BBC shows are traveling across the pond. Firstly, QI is being shown on BBC America - starting from series* 'J' for some reason. Secondly, I've mentioned the Infinite Monkey Cage podcast a few times and I see they are doing some live shows, details here: http://www.infinitemonkeycage.com/
Anyhoo. Highly recommended, give them a try, and if you don't like it you don't have to watch or download anymore episodes.

*series=seasons, I believe.

Just a friendly reminder for those who 'enjoy' Black Mirror and/or anything Charlie Brooker.
Charlie Brooker's seasonal special is a mind-bending chiller of three interwoven stories brimming with near-future madness

+David Pick Black Mirror isn't really binge-watchable due to each episode being standalone- they can be pretty much be viewed in any order. I agree with you in most parts, there was a lot of S2 where I was intrigued by it, and simultaneously not having a clue what was going on.

I am a huge fan of Charlie Brooker, though. A lot of his other stuff is more commentary, and general rants (like Lewis Black) and I find I agree with all of it! (If I get time I'll have a look for stuff on Youtube).

It's about the brain, I don't think I need to sell it any more than that. I understand it's not super new, but I'm always amazed whenever I'm shown how much work the brain is constantly doing. And this whole perception of reality is, well, just mind boggling.

If you only watch 1 thing today then the Japanese #StarWars trailer really should be it. Then watch it again & again www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdAUiyeJMFQ

I forgot my usual mention of Stargazing Live. It is mainly about the solar eclipse, but also has the great Buzz Aldrin, and great space stories.

Seeing people other than Paul post on the Supersite is just weird.

Sixteen and a half years ago, I hopped on a plane in Phoenix and headed off to a Windows NT 5.0 Reviewer's Workshop in Seattle. Little did I know that this event would forever change my life: It led to the creation of what I thought would be a one-off web site first called the Windows NT 5.0 ...

I'm pretty sure we all know everything that happened here, but it is a nice summary of the landing.

The example requests are quite interesting, I thought.
