Pioneer App Radio Connect Your Car with a Cool Stereo, Aha Radio – CES 2012

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS At the TPN CES Live show, Harry Kroll from Pioneer Car Electronics joined Andy and Courtney. Harry talked about their new App Radio 2, which connects to iOS, and now Android devices. In dash car CD players with HD Radio, CD players and more. In-dash navigation systems, and of course, App Radio. A capacitive touch screen, with full function of your apps on a much bigger screen.

A little bit of difference, but it’s your account, happening through your device – only amplified through the phone. Of course, you can’t open every app to App Radio. Pioneer works with certain companies to make the apps that you need to work with App Radio. There is an SDK available from Pioneer, so you can...

Firestarter Firewall for Linux–First Run 1

Firestarter Firewall for Linux–First Run

This is the first of two posts on the Firestarter firewall for Linux. See the note at the end of this post for information about getting Firestarter. Firestarter is the easiest Linux firewall front-end I’ve found. I’ve used it off-and-on since I loaded my first Linux box almost six years ago. Unlike many Windows firewall programs I’ve used, it doesn’t nag; doesn’t display useless messages; and, being free and open source, doesn’t ask for money for upgrades. It just sits there and works. I use the term “front-end” because firewall capability is built directly into the Linux kernel; it’s called “iptables.” Linux “firewall” programs do not run the firewall. Instead, they configure the already-existing capability, including setting it to start automatically; the kernel actually “runs” the firewall. When you first run Firestarter, a wizard starts. After a welcome screen, it asks you to select your network connection (generally,...

Firesheep:  Security Exploit as Firefox Plugin

Firesheep: Security Exploit as Firefox Plugin

Now anyone can have L33t HaX0r skilz. A Firefox extension called “Firesheep” automates hacking your wi-fi connection if you are using public wi-fi. Here’s an excerpt from the Guardian’s report: Firesheep, though, has an easy-to-use interface and, perhaps most importantly, a cute name. Surely this can’t be a “cracking tool”? It wasn’t released by someone going by a name like ‘dEvILSp0RN42’. It doesn’t feature white text on a black background. It has well-thought-out and literate documentation. To use it, you simply install it into Firefox and click a few buttons. One minor additional step, installing WinPcap, is required for Windows users. You can watch a demo on YouTube (I was unable to embed the video).
