SSL 2.0 broken

SSL/TLS encryption protocols have been broken. I had a feeling this was coming soon. Problem is Chrome and firefox currently only support TLS 1.0 along with over a million other websites like gmail and paypal. Versions 1.1 and 1.2 have existed since 2006 and 2008 but unfortunately most developers are slow to upgrade because everyone else is. It means using different code that might cause a problem later so I can understand the reluctance. Usually when a major weakness is found like this, major companies are quick to path. It's only when these holes are found that they are patched, typically.
This is really just to show you the nature of encryption and security in general on the net. It's a lot of back and forth.

inSSIDer 2.0

Is an rf spectrum analyzer I found for free on The site is mostly bloatware we all know but I was really hunting for an rf analyzer. This will allow you to actually see the wifi in your house and see where the weak points are. Great free tool for wifi optimization. These tools usually run over a $1000.

What kind of ridiculousness is this? When you have to put a lift kit on a car just to put bigger rims on it, you got a problem, and bad taste.

I like ice cream as much as the next guy, maybe less. When Ben&Jerry's came out with Stephen Colbert's amaericone dream I had to get it. To be honest it did taste like freedom. Now Ben&Jerry's is doing it again, this time with the SNL skit starring Alec Baldwin and Molly Shannon. That's right, you will soon be able to taste "Schweddy Balls" yourself. It's made with vanilla ice cream with rum balls and chocolate malt balls. The other ingredients are from a secret Schweddy family recipe.

This post is really just so I can easily find this site later. I have an older Bluetooth headset that I want to be able to use on my car stereo. A2DP is just a Bluetooth profile for streaming music.

Captain Planet

Funny or Die's exclusive Captain Planet video is pretty funny. I put off watching it all last week because Don Cheadle as Captain Planet is kinda weird, and I was afraid it would be lame but I've seen it reposted so many time in the last week I thought I would repost here for y'all who might not have seen it.

White Zombie

I thought White Zombie was ok when I was in high school. I was amused when I came across this article on HackAday. This all electric 79 datsun named White Zombie puts out 500 hp and 1200 lb ft of torque. It smokes this maserati in a 1/4 mile. It runs 11 secs in the 1/4. It is said to go 90 miles on a charge. This is no cheap build though. The batteries are prototypes used by the US navy and cost approx. 125k.
