Caffeinated peanut butter is truly a complete breakfast all on its own

Truly peanut butter with a buzz that will keep you up at night thinking about it.

Death metal cannot compete with real death. It will continue in the shadow of the terrorism in Paris at the performance of the Eagles of Death Metal band.

Amazing stuff from Eytan Adar (Associate Professor of Information and Computer Science at the University of Michigan):

I can think of several good reasons why some people might feel that this technology needs to be suppressed.

^ I've been checking out some of the LED modules for some of these flashlights. They're pretty darn sexy.

Here's one and another.

Your Phone Is Listening—Literally Listening—to Your TV

Quote from: The Article
(Bhatt said that the smartphone apps that listen for SilverPush audio beacons present the user with a screen asking for detailed permission before using the device’s microphone for the first time.)

This bit strikes me as tactically disingenuous, because the long winded - and I'm sure carefully timed - "detailed request" only servers to inspire people - EULA style - to dismissively agree.

...And to think a year or so ago, we were worried about hackers misusing Acoustic Mesh Networks.

Dell installs self-signed root certificate on laptops, endangers users' privacy  Computerworld

Noooooo - isn't that what Lenovo did as well?
You'd think they'd learn...

I bought a Dell laptop in July, so hopefully I dont have it ...
