San Francisco seems to currently enjoy more iPad posters than restaurants.
However, a group called Freedom from Porn believes that these posters don't accurately reflect the world as it sees it. So, its members sneaked around in the middle of the night and offered the laps featured in the posters something of a dance.
It seems the group was stimulated to act by Apple CEO Steve Jobs who has repeatedly declared that the iPad should be free from porn.
The group's Web site offers that its members--two of whom are seen in this footage, walking away, dressed in … Read more
Sometimes, statistics can go some way to defining the state of a civilization. This doesn't happen often, but there are small occasions in which even the most drunken, addled reader will sober up very quickly, as pertinent numbers begin to numb.
So please allow me to offer you some numerical information that might just make you rethink your life priorities.
You see, I have just come across this infographic, courtesy of Online MBA, a site "where business education meets the Internet." This is a business blog that tweets occasionally and even adorns its site with a Reuters … Read more
Jasmine picks up the slack on Donald's sick day and gets fab producer Jason Howell and "huge" CNET Labs editor Eric Franklin to co-host the latest Crave podcast. We scoured Crave to bring you only the best gems, and this week, we came up with a luxurious $15K speaker from Bowers & Wilkes, some Twitter-friendly dairy cows, a gadget porn crackdown, and the latest Japanese auto innovation. Also, no Crave podcast would be complete without a little something gross to cap it off. Tune in to find out what.Subscribe in iTunes SD Video | Subscribe in RSS SD Video… Read more
Australia, once a country of rather basic mien, has made great strides in the direction of culture. It makes wine that can mostly be ingested without indigestion. It even occasionally qualifies for the World Cup.
However, I wonder whether a newly noticed Australian cultural wrinkle might set the country back in the perceptions of many international travelers.
The national barometer, the Sydney Morning Herald, is alerting visitors to Australia that their laptops, and indeed the rest of their luggage, might now be searched for porn.
It seems to have taken the Australian Sex Party, which does much sterling work--including promoting green sex toys--to first notice a change to those little cards that aliens must sign before entering one of the jewels of Pacific Rim exploration.
Since September of last year, visitors have been required to answer whether they are carrying "pornography" on their person, place, or thing. This seems a something of a hoary question, as my dim knowledge of such things suggests that some pornography is, indeed, legal.
Perhaps some will be changing their travel plans when they hear that Australian customs officials confirmed to the Herald that they do now have the power to peek inside your laptop, iPhone, or even iPad and check whether you might have some naughty images or, even better, movies.
Others will be relieved that the customs officials declared that they will apply "tact and discretion." Which, presumably would mean no loud exclamations including the words "Cor!" "Blimey!" and "Sheila!"… Read more
And here we'd thought that politicians were finally getting used to the ubiquitous presence of video cameras and YouTube in their lives: a Florida news and politics site called Sunshine State News has posted a video online in which a state senator in a Senate hearing definitely has something open on his laptop that involves partially unclothed women.
Now, we realize that Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown has made it acceptable for the words "senator" and "unclothed" to be used in the same sentence, but looking at risque pictures on the Senate floor is still a … Read more
Then, war, resources, Stephen Hawking, and Cybertron. How are these things related? A better question is, how are they not related?!
Finally, a throwback to some of our 2008 episodes where we got mad political. Hey! If we get a political question in, we're going to answer it! What?! "Righteously indignant"? No, that's Dong's job.
