This past weekend, I went to go see Suicide Squad. I was really excited to see what Warner Bros. and DC comics had cooked up for a live-action Suicide Squad movie. A lot of the advanced trailers that people were seeing about the movie looked to be fairly promising. The studio had secured established actors …

Creating a new website account— check the EULA for ‘perfect security’

There was an article that surfaced last week on Ars Technica that talked about the breach of security from Sony; the Sony PlayStation network last year. What’s happening there is amazing.

Movie Review: Total Recall [2012] – Good enough to see twice

Almost immediately following that announcement was a report that LAST.FM, a media website, had been hacked for their user account. And back in December 2010 Gawker media news site was hacked …
