Malicious QR Code Use On the Rise

DigitalGodBoy Shock Value (234 comments)

A while back, a friend of mine at a university printed up several dozen flyers with a QR code pointing to LemonParty and posted them around campus. Hilarity ensued as he took pictures of people's reactions as they scanned them.

Messaging Apps, VoIP Already Eating Into Carrier Revenue

DigitalGodBoy iMessage (225 comments)

My text usage has dropped about 85% now that iMessage is automatically taking every iPhone user's texts over the Apple's server systems. Pretty handy.

This should help: sudo nano -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.AppleFileServer.plist Add in the following lines: LowPriorityIO This will cause the AFP server on the file share to have only spare access to the disk.

Bach Launches Updated MP3 Format

DigitalGodBoy What? Why? (279 comments)

DigitalGodBoy Works fine on a Mac Pro (279 comments)

Google Upgrades Chrome To Beta For OS X, Linux

DigitalGodBoy Re:Beware Google's penchant for auto-updates... (197 comments)

Google's Keystone agent launchd object resides at ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.google.keystone.agent on OS X. You can remove this file, but I assume Chrome will re-create it. Open it up with TextEdit and change the ProgramArguments string to "/dev/null" and you're done.

DigitalGodBoy Some are more equal than others... (846 comments)

The only reason this is even news is because of the target. If there's no government communication on the account, why are the FBI and Secret Service involved?

How many times a day do bitter exs break into each others accounts? Nothing ever comes of those incidents.
