SDR is cracking open the world of low-power embedded RF security. Home security systems, keyfobs, garage door openers, etc.

Any system that was relying on the obscurity of the RF protocol, and wasn't doing good cryptographic design, is going to be broken wide open by <$100 USB radios.

These are attacks that are very easy to package and turn into salable tools for professional thieves. Smash and grab type thefts won't bother, but the professional rings that are willing to case beforehand are going to be using these (see the thefts of Jeeps in Houston).

I encourage everyone to sign the #SaveFiltering petition. This is a very simple individual rights issue. Do you have the right to enjoy entertainment on your own terms or should Hollywood dictate how you experience music, movies, books, etc.?

I believe I have the right to close my eyes, plug my ears, fast forward, skip or otherwise choose how I, personally, experience a movie. I also believe I have the right to use technology to help me do that. It's really that simple.

Click the link below and sign the petition if you agree. If you disagree, I'd love to hear your point of view.

Great TED talk about procrastination. Well worth the 15 minutes.

Traveling this summer? Remember, TSA is pure security theater. Their rules make no common sense and have nothing to do with safety or security.

Google records everything you say either to Google Now, via the voice to text prompts, etc. Pretty much anything you've ever said via your phone or though your computer microphone.

The good news is, you can delete all of it. That puts you one step above, for example, Siri where you have no control at all.

The Simpsons got "Simprovised" and made animation history - with the help of a little Adobe magic. Learn more about how it happened and give Character Animator a try yourself: http://www.adobe.com/go/video
