Why the hell do companies keep insisting that biometrics is better than a regular password? How quickly did the iPhone 5S get its fingerprint scanner hacked? And, oh wait, the Galaxy S5 is now having its fingerprint scanner hacked. And oh wait, PayPal's app tries to get you to use a fingerprint? WTF!? Sigh.

When it comes to Samsung's fingerprint scanner technology embedded in the home button on the new Galaxy S5, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that we have spent plenty of time testin...

The fingerprint reader hack for both the iPhone 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S5 is pretty damn easy to do. Yeah, you need a fingerprint, but seriously, you leave one of those on everything you touch with your finger.....including, of all places, the screen of the phone they're trying to hack. I believe that biometrics aren't as good as regular passwords due to the fact that the "password" cannot be easily changed if someone does hack it.

There are just over eight days (give or take depending on your local timezone) until all official support from Microsoft for all versions of Windows XP ceases forever.

You have been warned. You should probably take this opportunity to figure out what the heck you're going to do with that aging XP system in your house that no one uses now. (I'm guilty of not doing this myself, but I've got a plan in mind and like everyone else is probably thinking "I've got eight days to do it, right?".)

That was fast! Usually takes them longer.

Note to Maptool: can we stop making the Subversion repository so large that it literally takes multiple cycles of "svn cleanup" and "svn update" after the initial checkout to just get a local sandbox of the most recent revision? Gosh. You even checked-in every single archive distribution of your product. Sigh. Oh well. Here's hoping that I can eventually get a sandbox of the most recent repository revision so that I can fix a few things.

This module was designed by Gygax to be brutal to the players who went through it.

Yet another reason to switch to T-Mobile: AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint all removed Download Booster from the Galaxy S6. T-Mobile doesn't. Yay Reddit for giving me even more reason for switching: http://www.phonedog.com/2014/04/10/samsung-galaxy-s5-to-lack-download-booster-feature-on-at-t-sprint-and-verizon/

Damn it Bethesda. Could you have made the mod system in #Skyrim  any easier? I've had to undo my mod inserts at least a dozen times tonight. Hell, I think I'm just going to hit reinstall again and let it run while I sleep.

1 in 9.2 quadrillion: That's supposedly the odds of randomly completing a perfect NCAA March Madness bracket. Thanks Ebay: http://mashable.com/2014/03/22/march-madness-odds/?utm_cid=mash-com-G+-main-photo
You're more likely to be struck by lightning three times in a year than choose a perfect March Madness bracket this year.

Important: Games for Windows Live is going away in July 2014. However, as the article below states:

"I don't know why this issue isn't a heck of a lot bigger than it is, but take note that any game that does not remove or patch out the Games For Windows Live DRM authentication system for its single-player content will render the game completely and entirely unplayable."
