  • 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 […]

  • It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Bitstrips. Today I was inspired. Me and my brother really enjoy going to breakfast every now and then. What was better – there was a restaurant that actually had Wi-Fi access. Therefore, we both would take our laptops and surf while eating. That was two weeks ago. Now we have smartphones that have wireless access. […]
