Highly recommended. This is a Chrome extension that checks to see if the website you are using has placed preventative measures against Heartbleed.

How water resistant is the Samsung Galaxy S5?

According to this video, it can last up to an hour under water at 1 meter deep and can withstand a cycle in a washing machine. I have a water resistant Galaxy S4 Active and love being able to carry it around the pool. But I'm not a big fan of Galaxy phones. Why aren't more phones following the water resistant feature?
Ultimate Samsung Galaxy S5 Water Test!

Game developers blame Satan for lack of success.

Developers working on a Bible based game are blaming Satan for their lack of success. Ken Frech, the religious mentor for the project at Phoenix Interactive, stated:
"If Satan is rallying some of his resources to forestall, delay, or kill this project, I think, this must be a perceived threat to his kingdom. I fully would expect something like this to have spiritual warfare. Look at the gospel accounts of demons and so forth. That's reality. Many Americans don't believe it anymore. That doesn't change reality."

The first victim of Facebook's acquisition of Oculus Rift is...

... #Minecraft. Can we really blame the developers though? Notch stated that "Facebook creeps [him] out" and that Facebook's core purpose will always be it's social aspect, not gaming.

Lead singer of Neon Trees comes out as a gay #Mormon.

Neat! 
From Rolling Stone:
"We were always taught, and I hate this word, 'tolerance,'" he says, regarding his church's stance on homosexuality, which is notoriously fraught. "The only time that felt different was when the Prop 8 thing came up," he says, referring to when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spent an estimated $22 million fighting same-sex marriage in California in 2008.

Another #Disney film is being accused of ripping off a Japanese anime.

According to +Kotaku, users on the message board 2ch are claiming that the widely popular movie, Frozen, has many similarities to the Japanese anime Saint Seya

There seems to be a trend of such accusations made towards Disney, most notably with The Lion King and it's anime equivalent Kimba: The White Lion.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield talks about fear.

+Chris Hadfield recently spoke at a TED Conference about fear.
When we begin to understand the difference between perceived danger and actual danger, we have the ability to gain more knowledge, find beauty we would have otherwise missed, and inspire others.

Bonus David Bowie performance at the end!

Dan Cathy wishes to shed anti-gay image of Chick-fil-a.

Yes, I get most people are over this subject. Chick-fil-a was my first place of employment and I actually enjoyed my time there. Because of my experience there, the "CFA Appreciation Day" and boycott are subjects I like to keep tabs on.

The intent of this post is not to tell people it is okay to eat Chick-fil-a now. I have many friends who still refuse to go there and I completely support the decision of an individual to not spend his money there. The reason for me sharing this article is to show how effective boycotts can be, despite the flaws and mudslinging the CFA boycott brought forth.

Dan Cathy, the CEO of CFA, recently stated:
"Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by (recognizing) the mistakes that you make. And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you’re just a fool. I’m thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it. Probably the elements that were stressful for me most is from our internal staff and from operators and how this may be affecting them. The bottom line is we have a responsibility here to keep the whole of the organization in mind and it has to take precedence over the personal expression and opinion on social issues."

Yes, Chick-fil-a had record breaking sales in 2012 because of the love people gave thanks to Mike Huckabee and Dan Cathy's statements. Considering the customer base CFA has, this should be of no surprise. But Dan Cathy and CFA's PR department knows that this image of being anti-gay is not good for business in the long run. Sure, they will always do well in the Bible Belt and other socially conservative areas, but CFA wants to expand business. In order to do so, they will have to shed the image they fairly earned in 2012. Of course, CFA would have never had this image of being anti-gay had a boycott never taken place.

On top of that, CFA has cut donations to anti-gay organizations by 99.2% in 2012 according to ThinkProgress. The initial CFA boycott started in 2011.
