As a fan of live music, I adore this site. It reconstructs concerts from YouTube footage. It’s pretty slow right now due to heavy traffic, but give it a try as soon as you can.

HP Printers Can Be Remotely Controlled and Set on Fire

Jon Brodkin:

Security researchers at Columbia University have accused HP of selling printers with a flaw that could let hackers gain remote control over the devices. Once compromised, the access can be used to steal personal information, attack networks, and even set printers on fire by feeding them a continuous stream of instructions designed to heat them up.

Well that’s just absurd.
