We are all witnessing a number of interesting reactions to the latest scandals revealed regarding this administration, the NSA’s collection of all American Verizon customer’s phone call information and,now, the collection of e-mail and other documents from a host of Internet companies. One of the most telling is the attempt to excuse this intrusion by [...]
It’s been 1 scandal after another for the Obama administration over the past 6-8 months and there remain several serious, unanswered questions about literally every one of them. The bombshell-du-jour centers around the collection by the National Security Agency (NSA) of phone call metadata of all of Verizon Wireless’ customers, suspected of any illegal activity [...]

The post was actually one of HoodaThunk?’s all-time largest [...]
Welcome to the new year. So this is what life after the end of the world looks like. Who knew? 2012 was certainly a year of ups and downs, and plenty of the latter. It’s no secret that the elections didn’t turn out the way I wanted to see them go and I do believe [...]
OK, it’s been a while since I’ve waxxed all techie here at HoodaThunk? so I figure I’m due. Today’s topic: WiFi networks and the importance of channel selection. Most home users of WiFi tend to not worry about the radio channel their wireless routed is using. The router is usually smart enough to seek an [...]
