Why Do We Still Tolerate The NSA?

From Bloomberg:

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.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised anymore at this point.

Not All Ideas Are Good

This Kickstarter project is asking for $400,000 to help build a mini PS4 that doesn’t play games but uses Bluetooth to let you print documents… anywhere.


  • You still need to buy ink, which is still one of the most expensive liquids on the planet. It’d actually be cheaper to power this thing with champagne.
  • This pretty much requires a flat surface.
  • Because normal printers weren’t slow enough.
  • Because normal printers weren’t expensive enough.
  • It’s really not a PS4.
  • Hasn’t anyone heard of Kinko’s?
  • Or this?


As of this writing, 908 backers have pledged $152,119.
