Some things are so mind bogglingly stupid that they require a profanity laden rant.

Apple 7th Gen iPad + Smart Cover Fix

Perhaps the most frustrating part of using the Apple Smart Cover with the 7th Gen iPad is that the keyboard just randomly stops working from time to time with no real rhyme or reason as to why. After lots of searching around and not getting anywhere I finally found a solution that works like a…

Four Years of Conditioning

So I just started a new job and its made me realize a few things. First is that I was at the previous gig for far too long, just over 4 years to be precise. That is an awful long time now that I actually sit down and think about it, four years of driving…

ComputerCOP and your local police force.

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/09/computercop-dangerous-internet-safety-software-hundreds-police-agencies The fact that the police are distributing this software is absurd (most of them barely know how to use a computer beyond basic web surfing) but the fact that they are pissing away our money on it is the real salt in the wound.
