Artist Got 380 People To Trade Their Personal Data For A Cookie: Gothamist
"The most compelling exhibit we stumbled across at last week's DUMBO Arts Festival was Risa Puno's "Please Enable Cookies." Puno baked 700 confections iced to resemble the logos of social media companies; to get one you had to turn over personal information, such as your email address, your mother's maiden name, the last four digits of your SSN, and even your fingerprints. ProPublica followed up with Puno and found that 380 New Yorkers participated in the physical phishing performance, 162 of them giving up their SSN info, 117 of them relinquishing their fingerprints, and more than half posing for a photo." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Incredible Close-Up Drone Video of an Erupting Volcano in Iceland | WIRED - http://www.wired.com/2014...
Great videos. "During a second flight, he attempted to get even closere to the eruption, but it was out of range. When the drone would go out of range, its failsafe would trigger, bringing it back to the launch point. Cheng needed to be closer to get the shot he wanted. According to Cheng, “One of the policemen came over to us and said, ‘We checked the rules, and vehicles can’t drive closer. However, you could theoretically walk closer. I have to inform you that we officially do not recommend this, because it’s dangerous.’”" - rönin from Bookmarklet

The Food Lab: Make Your Own Just-Add-Hot-Water Instant Noodles (and Make Your Coworkers Jealous) | Serious Eats
"Wouldn't it be great if you could get all of the convenience and pleasure of instant noodles—the portability, the just-add-water cooking, the lunch-sized portions—but pack it full of fresh vegetables and real, honest-to-goodness flavor? Here's a secret: you can, and it's easier than you think." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Today, I'm going to keep the talking to the minimum, walk you through one flavor—Spicy Kimchi Beef Flavor—give you basic instructions for the other three flavors—Chicken and Dill Flavor, Vegetable With Sesame-Miso Soup Flavor, and Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp Flavor—and leave you a few helpful tips for designing your own instant pot noodles because really, this is a method more than a strict recipe." - rönin
You can quickly and easily make your own cup-a-soup with angel hair pasta, instant bouillon, and dehydrated veggie flakes. Just add enough stuff to make one mug full of soup, to a ziplock snack baggie (break the pasta in short pieces). You can store a few of them in your desk drawer for "emergencies". - April Russo

Britons sign away first-born children for free Wi-Fi - Yahoo News - http://news.yahoo.com/britons...
Britons sign away first-born children for free Wi-Fi - Yahoo News
"Several Britons agreed to give up their eldest child in return for the use of free Wi-Fi, in an experiment to highlight the dangers of public Internet, published on Monday. Londoners were asked to agree to terms and conditions as they logged on to use free Wi-Fi in a cafe in a busy financial district and at a site close to the houses of parliament. The terms included a "Herod clause", under which the Wi-Fi was provided only if "the recipient agreed to assign their first born child to us for the duration of eternity". In the short period the terms and conditions were live, six people signed up." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Seems like a fair trade to me. - Stephen Mack

Anchor mistakes ‘Xi’ for ‘11’, loses job - The Hindu
"A newsreader of Doordarshan News has been sacked as she pronounced the name of Chinese President Xi Jinping as “Eleven Jinping” in a bulletin, mistaking “Xi” for the Roman numeral “XI.” The bulletin went on air at 6.15 a.m. on Wednesday and she was sacked in the afternoon. She was from the casual panel of newsreaders. They stand in for those on regular service and are paid on a daily basis." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - It's My Thing

Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson

this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva

Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal

New idol group exists to pay off debts | The Japan Times
"The members of the group, called the Margarines, are out for money, pure and simple. The gimmick is that they’re pursuing the idol dream in order to pay off their debts. The nine members, ranging in age from 19 to 30, owe a total of around about ¥127 million. They had different reasons for running up their debts, such as taking out student loans, buying products from fraudulent business operators or simply just spending too much on leisure activities." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Paper list most of the time. I do leave it at home about 50% of the time. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I have the Safeway app which has a list, but I find when I'm in the store I have to keep stopping, scrolling, finding stuff...and I don't get a good signal in two of the stores I shop at. So I find myself still making paper lists. And leaving them home more often than not. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Mostly wing it. I got rid of my shopping apps awhile ago and use one of the notepads on my phone for longer lists. - Anika
Paper list, both for Safeway and for the monthly Target run. (But then, we don't have a smartphone so apps aren't in the picture.) The Safeway list is on the back side of the card on which I write that week's meaningful J4U specials, and that one *always* gets taken with us. - Walt Crawford
I use Color Note. It has a check list function that's perfect for this. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I keep a small (6'x9") clipboard on a hook in the kitchen. Add to list as needed, take the whole clipboard with me and prop it in the cart. Last week I left it at the checkout. Got it back this week. I had crossed off all the the items except TP. Somebody had written "Oh no!" next to it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
We use a small, dry-erase board on the fridge, then snap a phone pix before heading to the store. - Ken Morley
I have a meal-planning program I use (Plan to Eat) that tracks my pantry and spits out a grocery list once I've dropped in my meals for the week, so I just use that (I actually transcribe it into a little notebook I keep in my purse rather than print out a sheet every week; I prefer to organize it by the layout of the store I go to). Tried using apps but it just wasn't the same. - Hookuh Tinypants
I resemble this image. But also I don't usually buy much at a time especially as only shopping for one. - Deborah Fitchett
