Have a router? The FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time in order to inspect it

Have a router? The FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time in order to inspect it

You may not know it, but if you have a wireless router, a cordless phone, remote car-door opener, baby monitor or cellphone in your house, the FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time of the day or night in order to inspect it.

Take this ROM and…

Indie developer Farbs -- creator of 8-bit videogame mashup Rom Check Fail and the later, similarly stylish Polychromatic Funk Monkey -- quit his mainstream job as gameplay programmer at 2K Australia in fitting fashion: he created a playable take on Super Mario Bros that delivers the message far better than any scathing letter could. Play the [...]

“Four Corners” is off by 2.5 miles

Hard to believe it took them this long to figure it out? I wonder if they're going to move the site or keep it where it is and simply hope no one reads the article. SALT LAKE CITY - Tourists who think they're putting a hand or foot in each of four U.S. states at the Four Corners area are apparently missing the mark — by about 2.5 [...]

Court turns down challenge to jury’s use of Bible

A Texas man killed his victim by shooting him and beating him with the barrel of a gun.

Multi-level marketing spam for child fingerprinting operation

Multi-level marketing spam for child fingerprinting operation

This may be the creepiest spam I've ever received. In this multi-level marketing scam, you terrorize local parents into coming to your business to have their children fingerprinted (Why fingerprinted? Presumably to ease identification of their mutilated remains -- don't you feel safer already?) by the local cops. This, in turn, gets you a bunch of [...]

Ron Paul Meets Sacha Baron Cohen

Apparently Bob Barr isn’t the only American libertarian politician to fall victim to Sacha Baron Cohen’s unique brand of comedy: Presidential candidates will do almost anything for publicity. But Ron Paul’s appearance in Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming Bruno movie suggests he draws the line at making sex tapes with gay Austrian TV [...]

Alton Towers, the UK theme park and gardens, has an exciting offering for the whole family. They're offering to track you via RFID and sell you (what I'm assuming is) CCTV footage of your day at the park, both on and off rides. They do say: "We delete any unclaimed footage at the end of your visit so, if you don't buy your personalized DVD before [...]
