Apple’s iCloud Defense

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:25 am

In light of Fapgate, Apple has announced . . . Well, basically, Apple has said, “It’s not our fault!” But that doesn’t detract from the interesting take on Apple’s security, mulled over in the post linked below.


Disable Image Sync

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Hello female celebrity! This is the blog post you’ve been waiting for, the one that tells you how to disable automatic image synchronization with the cloud. That way, those selfies you shoot in the mirror and all your other nekkid pictures won’t end up on the Internet for the next Fappening.

Computer Pioneer Andy Kay Passes

Filed under: News — admin @ 11:33 am

If you were around in the 1980s, then you probably knew about the KayPro computer. For a while, it was the most popular, “transportable” CP/M system available.

The KayPro was created as a rival to the Osborne computer, which also used the CP/M operating system.

I never did meet Andy Kay, but as the editor of a local computer magazine, I toured the KayPro facilities and saw a sneak-peek of their IBM PC compatible system in the late 1980s. Alas, that computer was too late to market and so KayPro didn’t see the same success with that model as they did their earlier efforts.

One thing I’ll always remember KayPro for was the Leading Edge word processor. It was very popular, and one of the first word processors to feature automatic backup. I found the software box’s photo of Abraham Lincoln odd, but yet I still remember it after all these years.

Mr. Kay also invented a voltage meter, but to me he’ll be remembered as one of the pioneers from the early days of the microcomputer.

The words would strike terror into your hearts. “It’s long distance!” It was important! It was urgent! It’s now a thing of the past.

Text Color

No one makes a big deal about it today, but years ago text color was a big deal. In the dreary world of text mode computer, it was about the only fun you could have.

I Think I’m in Love

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I was wrong about computers. As it turns out, I really enjoy them and I love to program. I find it relaxing, like working a puzzle. Assembly language was my favorite programming language due to its delightfully cryptic nature. Now I’ve found a language even more cryptic, almost to the point of being insane.
