Corpse under motel bed for 5 years - Boing Boing
"Police in Mount Laurel, New Jersey found a young woman's corpse under a motel bed and it reportedly had been there for at least five years. A guest discovered the body when searching for the TV remote. “I clean that room every day. I noticed a smell several times, and told my manager,” hotel housekeeper Anita Rodriguez told Empire News. “He told me to just use extra Febreeze in the room and it would go away eventually. I always hated cleaning that room.”" - Me from Bookmarklet

That's nastier than nasty. Extra Febreeze? GTFOH - Anika from Android

Terrorist attack leaves dozens dead and wounded in China | Fox News Latino
"Dozens of people were killed or wounded in a terrorist attack in Kashgar prefecture in a new episode of violence in China's conflict-ridden northwestern Xinjiang region, the official Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday. The attack, which was not reported until Tuesday, began on Monday near the police station and other government buildings in the town of Elixku, where a group of people armed with knives carried out a series of assaults. Later, some of the attackers headed for the nearby town of Huangdi, where they stabbed civilians and destroyed about 30 vehicles, "killing dozens of Uighurs and Han Chinese," police said. Security forces managed to kill a large number of the dozens of attackers, Xinhua said. Hundreds of people have died in assorted attacks that Beijing attributes to terrorists and in clashes between the authorities and separatist groups that operate in Xinjiang, a region inhabited by Muslim ethnic minorities such as the Uighurs." - Me from Bookmarklet

"If you’re dying to see what it will be like when Family Guy meets The Simpsons, Fox has released an exclusive teaser for the episode over at Entertainment Weekly. It’s straight from the Family Guy panel at Comic-Con and it’s pretty much what you’d expect from your normal episode of either series. There’s Bart hanging with Stewie, Homer and Peter Griffin having Family Guy-esque cutaway gags (and making fun of them in the process), and a massive fight that tried to top of all of those previous chicken fights. There’s even that extra special cameo we mentioned, the one you can get a taste of above, but it certainly doesn’t end there for the surprises. If anything, I’d say this five-minute clip stuffs too much into it all. How are you going to fill an entire hour with this stuff?" - Me from Bookmarklet

The App I Used to Break Into My Neighbor’s Home | Threat Level | WIRED
"Less than an hour later, I owned a key to his front door. What I didn’t tell my neighbor was that I spent about 30 seconds in the stairwell scanning his keys with software that would let me reproduce them with no specialized skills whatsoever. The iPhone app I used wasn’t intended for anything so nefarious: KeyMe was designed to let anyone photograph their keys and upload them to the company’s servers. From there, they can be 3-D printed and mail-ordered in a variety of novelty shapes, from a bottle opener to Kanye West’s head. Or they can be cut from blanks at one of KeyMe’s five kiosks in the New York City area." - Me from Bookmarklet

You don't even need to get it printed. Just take a picture and grab an empty aluminum can. All you're doing is bumping the pins, either way. - NOT THE CRICKET
The solution would be to use a hermaphroditic pair: key and lock. Male portion of key is only exposed when aligned pressure on the locks male portion and key's female portion, match up to release. - NOT THE CRICKET
Hell, if you've seen the LOCK, all you need to do is pick out a blank with the appropriate keyway, grind it down a bit and, well, James has already mentioned bumping :-) There's no such thing as security given someone with the determination to bypass it and the time to do so. That's why the stuff I want to keep secure stays about my person while I'm awake and under my pillow while I sleep. But then, I'm paranoid. - Slippy: Potato Croquette

Google reportedly seals deal to gobble up Twitch for $1 billion | PCWorld
"It's been nearly two months since Variety and The Wall Street Journal reported Google was "in talks" to purchase popular games streaming site Twitch.tv for a billion dollars. According to VentureBeat, we can now upgrade the status from "in talks" to "sealed deal." The report is unconfirmed currently, with VentureBeat only citing "sources familiar with the matter," but it'd hardly be a surprise if true. Details are scarce though—neither company has spoken on the matter, and there's no news of whether just Twitch or all of the empire formerly know as Justin.tv is also part of the deal. We also don't know whether YouTube's own streaming service would continue to function separately from Google. Here's hoping that if the acquisition rumors are true, Google+ won't become mandatory for Twitch accounts." - Me from Bookmarklet

Found a sweet white dog in my neighborhood. Was running on the busy street. No tags, no microchip. I think its home might be a couple of sketchy homes down the street, but I am hesitant to take him back there to find out. I've seen him around outside a couple of times as has other neighbors.
If the owners are so irresponsible to let such a sweet little dog loose all the time, should they really get him back? Not that I am thinking of keeping him or giving him up to a shelter or the local pound.. it just seems sad to give him back to people that would treat him so badly. - Me
The dog almost got hit a couple of times while out in the street. I am not sure he isn't injured as he is still skittish, but warming up to us. Hopefully we will get to examine him more when he is more used to us. - Me
We took the dog to a 24hr vet and asked them to scan for a microchip, but didn't find any. I posted a pict of the dog on Nextdoor.com and a neighbor commented they have seen the dog running loose the last week around a major intersection. We decided to take the dog for a late night walk over that way and had him lead us to his home. A couple of the neighbors out said he has been running... more... - Me

Contradictory ruling in Gmail case leaves questions of privacy | SiliconANGLE - http://siliconangle.com/blog...
Contradictory ruling in Gmail case leaves questions of privacy | SiliconANGLE
"A judge in a United States District Court ruled that federal law enforcement agencies are allowed to search the entire contents of a Gmail user’s account to find evidence laundering case. The ruling in the case potentially opens up the door for more cloud-related searches and investigations. Gabriel Gorenstein, United States Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York, concluded that email accounts, like hard drives were allowed to be seized and searched in their entirety by police and federal agents. The ruling is directly at odds with other major rulings, including those in the Districts of Kansas and Columbia. In Kansas, the scope of the search was limited to the actual crimes under investigation. In the District of Columbia, law enforcement was not granted the entire contents of an email account because the judge did not believe they had probable cause." - Me from Bookmarklet

"My buddy Dennis Petersen from LEGO recommended Star Wars audiobooks as a great way to pass the time as a family. I was a little suspicious, as I've listened to a lot of Audible audiobooks and it's been hit or miss. It all comes down to having a good narrator. Also, has the producer of the audio book decided that this would be a voice actor just reading the book or is this a radio production with music, voices, and sound effects." - Me from Bookmarklet
