Smelly Superfish leaves Lenovo customers with bad aftertaste
~Lenovo Superfish: This catch isn't a "keeper."
Consumers are accustomed to finding "shovelware", "bloatware" or "adware" apps installed on new PCs, mobiles and tablets. Annoying and as hard to remove as bot flies, adware apps needlessly consume system resources. However, if you've bought a new Lenovo PC since mid-2014...
In today's #ITBW  for +Computerworld, bloggers catch and release.

In Soviet Samsung -- TV watches YOU
~Mind your P's and Q's near appliances.
Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean a "third party" isn't after you. Information gathered about consumers citizens from web cookies, CCTV cameras, cell phones, ad nauseum is no longer sufficient. The "third party" needs more information. Enter Samsung.

Her website actually uses Comic Sans MS font -- she's that type of person. He should call off this shit now before it's too late.
This morning, a tipster sent us a local Dallas news story about a bride who is upset that her wedding invitations were delivered with the wrong kind of doilies. The tipster suggested that Gawker "make fun" of this bride, who was so distressed by the mixup that she turned to her local ABC affiliate to air her grievances.

Sometimes you've gotta let go
Back in the 90s, I found this image and used it as desktop wallpaper on my Linux machines. It shows the Linux penguin beating the hell out of Bill G. 
It's odd how the times have changed: Microsoft now embraces linux, its new CEO Satya Nadella stating as much. This was a refreshing and long overdue change of attitude -- something I never thought I would hear a CEO of Microsoft say. I think I can retire this desktop background.

Cool, best luck to the SpaceX team.
SpaceX aims to launch the DSCOVR space weather satellite, land the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket in a reusability test and bring its Dragon cargo capsule safely down to Earth, all in the span of a few hours.

Radio Shack in the 80s
I remember the days when Radio Shack's main emphasis was selling electronic parts -- the insides of the stores were literally packed to the gills with inventory. I would find parts I needed, then check to see if there was a new Forrest M. Mims III Notebook for sale.
After I found my parts, I made sure I got my free 9v batteries (the red ones) at the checkout using my battery club cards. Last, because I was a smartalec kid, I would tell the cashier a goofy mailing address to see if they would enter it into the system -- because they always asked.
Good times.
After nearly 100 years in business, RadioShack is reportedly in talks to sell some stores to Sprint, then put up a CLOSED sign for good.

Whatever happened to console computers? I thought Apple brought them back with their line of froot flavored iMacs, and then they vanished down the memory hole forever.

Ooohh, the CRT went extinct. Okay.
