    It's not really a game, it's just a little replica of the Jurassic Park computer system Dennis Nedry set up (access the site HERE). Three attempts using the 'access' command results in a lockout and Nedry dressed as Elvis reminding you that you didn't use the magic word. Usin... / Continue →

    Because hacking oldschool video games to play as the female and rescue the male is all the rage right now (for the record I am 100% cool being rescued), Kenna W. hacked the original Legend of Zelda to play as Zelda and rescue Link. Fine, but hurry Zelda because it's just Gann... / Continue →

    Ever wanted your own head on top of a PEZ dispenser? Who hasn't? Well now Hot Pop Factory has devised a way to do just that by scanning your dome using an X-Box Kinect and printing it out using a 3-D printer. I just got mine in the mail today, see? "You look like a 3-D ultr... / Continue →

    This is a list of the most popular (read: laziest) passwords of 2012. Changes from last year's top passwords are noted. Somehow this joker "michael" made the list, but "iheartGW" didn't. I dunno, maybe I'm not the catch my mom always told me I was. :( Thanks to Shannon, wh... / Continue →

    Note: Consider this your retroactive freaky-deaky picture warning. A hacker going by the name of Barnaby Jack demonstrated his ability to hack pacemakers at a recent computer security conference in Australia, proving that fake boner pill emails may be the least of your grandpa... / Continue →

    So yesterday the feds busted up Megaupload, the "50-million+ daily visits and 4% of all web traffic" file-hosting website for SURPRISE! copyright infringement (among other things). Then hacker collective Anonymous, displeased with the fed's operation, decided to go on a websit... / Continue →

    This is a hookah somebody made out of an old computer case. Why'd you want to do that is beyond me, but I've given up on understanding why people do things. Except peeing outside, I totally get that. It's like, you're one with Mother Nature, you know? Almost like she's hold... / Continue →

    This isn't the first time a programmable roadsign has been hacked, and it probably won't be the last. How do I know? I'm blogging from the keypad of one of the things right now! Now how do you spell "handsomest"? Is that right -- it looks funny. At least two Florida Depart... / Continue →

    Been waiting for someone to hack a bunch of Roombas to play Pac-Man? Me neither, but somebody did AND YOU'RE GOING TO WATCH THEM OR I'M GOING TO TOOTHPICK YOUR EYES OPEN AND MAKE YOU. The vacuum, long an instrument for chasing cats, has now been turned against its own. What b... / Continue →

    John Pontilillo, a Johns Hopkins undergrad, killed a would-be robber with a samurai sword after finding the thieving bastard attempting to pilfer items from his garage. Nice, John, I would have done the same thing. Except blindfolded because I'm like 30x tougher than you are.... / Continue →

    Another day, another hacked roadsign, this time in Raleigh, NC outside North Carolina State University. Honestly, I have no idea what this bud is of which the sign speaks (you hear that, mom -- no idea!), but if it's anything like banana peels and grape leaves, you count me in... / Continue →

    Apparently somebody hacked a couple DC traffic signs to say dirty words. In case you were wondering, there's a UC missing in the first line and an ALL in the third. Some people, no class. If you think your commute can be offensive, you should have been driving northbound o... / Continue →

    Somebody hacked the ESPN.com site to accept the Konami code (↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A) and then to start adding unicorns and rainbows to the page every time you hit ENTER. I can attest to it working because two tipsters hit me up with the goods before ESPN caught on... / Continue →

    Jerry Jalava is a hacker who lost half his left ring finger in a motorcycle accident and decided to replace the digit with a USB drive. So now he sports a rubber half-finger with thumb(!)drive inside. Awesome. Plus, if he ever has to wear a wedding ring it won't count becaus... / Continue →

    Are you surprised? Of course not. What's there to be surprised about? You post an article about how to hack something, and people try it. Simple as that. (Traffic Controller Bruce) Jones, who has one of only two keys to the locked access panels on the portable signs, sai... / Continue →

    Last week a group of hackers busted all up in the Large Hadron Collider's network and did stuff. Okay, so they didn't really do anything. That we know about. Calling themselves the Greek Security Team, the interlopers mocked the IT used on the project, describing the techn... / Continue →

    A 20-year old hacker that goes by MaddoxX (not the best page in the universe guy) busted up in a third party Valve server and stole the credit card info of Steam Cyber Cafe users. Then he proceeded to "burn 13 million Euros playing poker online and shopping for notebooks, flat... / Continue →

    Tired of only playing Wii Fit on the balance board? Want to use it for something else? Well look no further. A couple of guys from DFKI (the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence) took a Balance Board and connected it to a regular old laptop PC. A custom C# appl... / Continue →

    This video has been around for a while, so you may have seen it already. And if you have, that's awesome, you should definitely mention it the comments section. I saw it some time ago myself, but not with this guy's voice-over, which made it better. It's probably NSFW though... / Continue →
