Mobile Ads Overtake Porn As Most Likely Way To Get Malware On Your Phone

While malware dressed in pornography’s clothing used to be the most tempting for smartphone users, it’s been overtaken recently by mobile ads, says one online security company in its latest report. Which means that either our big clumsy figures are accidentally hitting things or we’d rather look at ads than naked body parts. [More]

One of the PacSun shirts the shopper purchased because she felt they were indecent.

Woman Spends $567 To Buy All The ‘Indecent’ T-Shirts In Mall Store

If you see a product in a store that you think is indecent or should otherwise not be on sale to the public, what’s your reaction? Maybe you complain to the store manager, or take your issue to the local media. If you feel it’s so bad that it violates the law, you might contact the proper authorities. But do you spend quite a bit of cash to rid the store of the items in question? [More]

Early Adopter: Using Google Glass Is A Literal Headache

Early Adopter: Using Google Glass Is A Literal Headache

When Google first opened up the possibility of using its Glass face computers, nerds all over the world were excited about the opportunity. They signed up for the Glass Explorers program, which required them to pay $1,500 and not let anyone else even borrow the device. Almost a year later, many of those early adopters are tired of talking to their face computers. [More]

Click On The Link In That ‘Funeral Notice’ E-mail At Your Own Risk

Most e-mail scams try to take advantage of consumers’ curiosity, which is why phishing messages promising sex and/or porn still dominate the scam spam landscape. But some online jerks are trying to tap into an equally primal, but less crude, instinct by sending out fake funeral notices in the hope that people won’t be able to keep themselves from clicking away.

What If The Cable Guy In Porn Was From Time Warner Cable?

Before you do any kind of clicking away on the video below, please be aware that the content we’re about to laugh over is totally NSFW by way of some heavy breathing, sexytime noises, bad language and because while there’s no nudity, it looks like the setup for a real porno instead of just a comedy video. So really, NSFW, watch it with headphones on and maybe where no one can see your screen. [More]

Porn Company Digitally Removes Condoms From Video

Porn Company Digitally Removes Condoms From Video

In 2012, voters in Los Angeles County narrowly approved Measure B [PDF], a law that requires porn performers to wear condoms. Some fans of adult film fans complain that the use of condoms is distracting, and a number of studios are either ignoring the law or shooting outside of L.A. County. But one porno producer is going the high-tech route, digitally removing the prophylactic devices from its performers’ phalluses. [More]

Is MLK Day Just Another Holiday To Sell Stuff?

Is MLK Day Just Another Holiday To Sell Stuff?

Yesterday, the United States observed our newest federal holiday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The Rev. Dr. King was assassinated in 1968, and we’ve been observing a Monday close to his birthday as a nationwide holiday since 1986, so it must be about time to use his life and legacy as an excuse to hawk sleep meds, sweaters, and interracial porn.  [More]

American Apparel Puts Up Window Display Of Mannequins In Underwear, Pubic Wigs

American Apparel Puts Up Window Display Of Mannequins In Underwear, Pubic Wigs

American Apparel’s advertising has generally been notable, but never for its restrained good taste. They’re best known for the exact opposite of that, actually. This week, the company is getting some very badly-wanted attention with a window display featuring mannequins in thin white panties with lush brunette lady gardens. [More]

When Giving Used Electronics As A Gift, Maybe Check For Porn First

When Giving Used Electronics As A Gift, Maybe Check For Porn First

Buying used or refurbished technology can be a great way to save money, but it can also be a great way to put a great big cache of porn in the hands of your kid. That’s what happened to one man who bought his daughter a Kindle Fire from a pawn shop for Christmas. Worse: it might be child porn. Now police are investigating. [More]

Another Christmas, Another Porn-Filled Nintendo DS Under The Tree

Another Christmas, Another Porn-Filled Nintendo DS Under The Tree

When you buy what is supposed to be a brand-new piece of electronics from the world’s largest retailer, it really shouldn’t come loaded with someone else’s content. And when the supposedly new device is a gift for your 8-year-old son, it certainly shouldn’t come pre-loaded with other people’s porn. [More]

Facebook: Again, It Is Impossible For Old Messages To Be Republished As Wall Posts

At first upon reading the account of a blogger who believed that old, private messages between her and her Facebook friends were showing up publicly on her timeline, there was that same icky, familiar feeling many Facebook users had last year: Were our most private exchanges suddenly being aired out in a crazy, awful security breach?

For better or worse,  Anissa Chan and other Gmail users will never have to click "Display Images Below" again.

Why It May Not Be A Bad Thing That Gmail Will Automatically Display Images In Messages

If you have a Gmail account, you’re more than familiar with opening a commercial e-mail that looks like a strange wireframe with no images. Then you click “Display images below” and the blanks get filled in and (hopefully) it all makes much more sense. Google announced today that it will now automatically load these images, which is a move that has its pros and cons. [More]

How YouTube’s Forced Google+ Integration Devolved Into ASCII Porn

Google’s push to merge YouTube and Google+ was in part an attempt to clean up the notoriously negative (and sometimes nonsensical) comments left on videos, by forcing previously anonymous users to associate their comments with the name of a real-life human. But this story on Ars Technica explains how short-sightedness at Google and clever (if juvenile) YouTube users have instead turned the site’s comments into “a sea of ASCII penises.” [ArsTechnica]

LG Smart TVs Are So Smart, They Might Be Spying On You While You Change Channels

Is this the start of the humans vs. machine war, where our smart devices decide they’ve had enough of sitting back and watching our species click around on TVs and swipe our phones and just revolt? Let’s hope not, but a blogger in England does think he’s figured out that LG Smart TVs are so smart, they’re actually spying on us. [More]

Lawmakers Aim To Stop Patent Trolls From Shaking Down Businesses For Using Basic Office Equipment

Lawmakers Aim To Stop Patent Trolls From Shaking Down Businesses For Using Basic Office Equipment

We’ve written before about the lowest level of patent troll, the kind that claims to have a patent on some widely used technology — like photocopying or scanning — and instead of targeting the companies that make products that allegedly violate those patents, they try to bully small businesses into paying thousands of dollars for the use of basic office equipment.

Porn Troll Lawyers Hit With Legal Fees For Bullying Defendant

Porn Troll Lawyers Hit With Legal Fees For Bullying Defendant

Back in 2012, John Steele of Prenda Law — a firm that specializes in threatening to sue alleged porn file-sharers in order to force a settlement — was publicly bragging about his success, referring to himself in an interview as “the original copyright troll.” Recently, things haven’t gone so well, due in no small part to a disastrous attempt to sue Comcast and AT&T for phony claims of “hacking” one of their client’s websites.

BitTorrent To Saturday Night Live: “We’re Not A Website & We Don’t Pirate Movies”

BitTorrent To Saturday Night Live: “We’re Not A Website & We Don’t Pirate Movies”

While people are always saying “I BitTorrented that movie” or “I used BitTorrent to get my hands on some sweet porn,” they’re not talking about a website or a service. Instead, they’re talking about the method through which the shared file was obtained. This distinction was apparently lost on the writing staff at Saturday Night Live this weekend. [More]
