Tertiary Series: Security for criminals

I always love a good irony and here's a great one:
"Faced against such a highly secure means of transmitting of information, however, it's near impossible for law enforcement to listen in on and nab suspected criminals."
Blackberry is the Smartphone of Choice for Gangs and Criminals
Whoops! Didn't see that one coming..

"Now, if only they can make it smaller.." - some gangster

Try out the new Google Pervert

I didn't know Google was into the peeping-tom business until I read this:

Google camera trolling streets of Canadian Cities

"Strange-looking vans and cars are prowling the streets of 11 major Canadian cities and taking pictures of homes, lane ways, yards and people as part of the controversial "Street View" feature offered by Google Inc.

The feature allows someone using Google Maps or Google Earth to click on a street or a building and see a picture of the area. The service's ability to allow onlookers to swivel 360 degrees even gives Internet voyeurs the ability to take a virtual stroll of neighbourhoods."
A person being interviewed on the radio even said that this feature is not necessary but interesting because it allows you to see your own street, which he claimed is "pretty cool".

Here's what you should do if you want to see your own street live in 3D, HD, and whatever other (expletive) D you can think of..
  1. Go to front door
  2. Open door
  3. Walk outside
  4. Explore using the two cameras between both your nose and adjust your head for a better viewing angle.

Unions gone wild!

France is in a labour dispute involving recently laid off union members who kidnapped their employers and barricaded themselves in workplaces in protest.
"Workers at a factory operated by U.S. firm 3M held their French manager hostage overnight to protest against plans to lay off half the staff."
French manager blocked in office by angry staff

"Hundreds of French workers, angry about proposed layoffs at a Caterpillar office, were holding executives of the company hostage Tuesday, a spokesman for the workers said.

It is at least the third time this month that French workers threatened with cutbacks have blockaded managers in their offices to demand negotiations. Executives were released unharmed in both previous situations."Angry French workers hold Caterpillar execs in offices

If the managers didn't regret hiring these people before, they do now.

Tertiary Series: Terrorism Double-Standard

I'm usually not a fan of biased editorials, especially from a Conservative newspaper, but this piece on the recent Tamil protests raise some interesting points. (re: Protest may affect afternoon rush hour)

Surprisingly, I'm on the fence on this one..

Q&A: Are their things to avoid when applying for University?

I was surfing a forum and noticed an interesting topic. Some had asked, "Are their things to avoid when applying for university?"

A poster simply replied, "Yes, bad grammar."

Editor's Note: On vacation until Tuesday, April 14 - in the meantime, I will be working on my photography so there will hopefully be some original pictures on my blog for a change. I might get my chimps to post something Saturday, we'll see. Have a good Easter weekend.
