Update on Virus Shield app scam
Remember when virus shield was the top seller in the play store? Well Google is not only refunding the original purchase price, but also giving out $5 for the troubles!
Virus shield was previously 2nd in sales even after it had been discovered by other developers in the Android community to only have two lines of code: a launcher and the icon.
Quite literally an "emperor's new clothes" of security apps.

The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.

Having worn semi hard lenses, this makes my eyes hurt thinking about it. It will be quite a while before they'll be able to incorporate prescription lenses not to mention those of us who don't produce enough tears will either be tied to a eyedrop bottle or miss out entirely.
 
Take A Picture With Your Eyeball
Google is building their contact lenses with camera inside!

In the image below, you can see that the camera is below the pupil on the lens. As the wearer's gaze shifts, the contact lens will follow the shift in gaze, capturing/recording anything the user sees.

The contact lens contain a control circuit that includes a processing component that generates image information corresponding to scenes in a gaze of a wearer of contact lens and communicates that to a remote device (such as smart phone) with the camera and sensor.

The captured images can then be processed to detect light, colors, pattern of colors, objects, faces, motion, and more! Google noted that the analysis component can process raw image data to indicate whether the car is in motion and approaching the crosswalk and therefore reduce accident rate. In addition, the camera will be able to recognize faces and transmit that information to an earpiece for the blind.

Thanks for the hat/tip, Nicolette! I'm also confident this technology won't be perfect in the blink of an eye. ;-)

What's sad is still finding men who don't realize how bad this culture is getting, and how much it is seeping into life and out of the internet.
 
Yes.  This.  Now.

I am just glad to no longer be a nubile young hottie. It's not politics, or power, or psychology, it's simple lust. Nature says "go after her" and the boy with poor manners and inflated self importance, or who simply lacks self discipline (and that's getting really common) treats the woman badly.
Mostly it was men who had this crazy idea that they'd get ill if their desire wasn't fulfilled. They call it "blue balls" and I really don't know if it's real or not because they'll make up some pretty big lies. Many men believe they'll suffer pain and illness if they don't clear out their reproductive glands every time they get aroused.
I know that's not true, but it's still a common myth.

Sorry I've been so quiet lately! With all the snow and wedding planning I've had very little free time! Luckily I have very very awesome vendors, as two of which we'd completely forgotten to put a deposit down and were just getting ready to pay our first payments. (This wedding etiquette stuff is sure confusing!)
Now to book a photobooth and book a cake tasting and order invites and....

Loved the entire experience here buying my wedding ring! They worked hard to give me the ring and diamond I loved and stayed very close to our budget! They have won them a lifetime customer for how impressed I was with the service!

Customer service is lacking severely at this location. If I could avoid it I would. I knew more than the employee about my phone, he talked down to me but talked to my fiance at an intellectual level. Never buying a phone from them again just to avoid dealing with them.
