myVidoop going away – BUT you can SAVE your passwords!

July 24, 2014

Originally posted on By the Crick:

I’ve been a raving fan of a little known product called myVidoop for years.  myVidoop is a plug-in for your browser that captures, encrypts, and stores your login credentials in the cloud.  It then fills in log-in information automatically.

myVidoop was founded in March of 2006 by Joel Norvell and Luke Sontag. The application was intended to make life more convenient for internet users juggling multiple usernames and passwords.  At the time, a cloud-based password manager was pretty novel and just the thing for business people using multiple computers as it kept track of passwords across home and office desktops and laptops.

Long story shortened, myVidoop is shutting down permanently on January 31, 2013.Screen Shot 2013-01-24 at 11.19.01 AM

Thankfully, there is a way to salvage your log-in credentials and use them with the modern service, Dashlane.

Watch Avril Lavigne Tear Up Tokyo for “Hello Kitty” Video

July 22, 2014

Originally posted on TIME:

A message to our alien overloads: Who are you and what have you done with Avril Lavigne? Last time we checked on our beloved h8r of sk8r bois, she was riding around town handing out middle fingers like Halloween candy with the propulsive pop-rock of “Rock N Roll” and “17.” Clearly she’s been body-snatched for “Hello Kitty,” a sugar-coated dance jam that sounds like Ke$ha covering “Harajuku Girls”-era Gwen Stefani and looks like an extraterrestrial parody of contemporary pop music.

Lavigne must be in on the joke, though — rocking a full-on Skrillex ‘do with some bass drops of her own, Mrs. Nickelback is clearly having more fun than any of us on the track, which features the best Japanese-language intro to a song since “Get Ur Freak On” (also: the worst Japanese-language intro to a song since “Get Ur Freak On”). Irasshaimase!

ABOVE: Watch the video for “Hello Kitty” by Avril Lavigne

This post has been updated.

TORONTO — Avril Lavigne‘s video for “Hello Kitty” has been officially pulled from YouTube after being savaged online.

The video remains on the Canadian singer’s website (as of Wednesday afternoon) and there is at least one copy of it posted on YouTube.

There has been no comment from Lavigne or her reps.

Criticism of the video started within hours of its debut Monday.

“I adore you avril,” someone tweeted, “but that hello kitty song…”

Rebecca Pahle asked: “How long can you make yourself watch Avril Lavigne’s Hello Kitty music video? I made it to 43 seconds.”

Crispity Crunchity tweeted: “I watched five seconds of that hello kitty video and turned it off as fast if I had been caught watching porn.”

“I’m not quite sure how to process it,” tweeted Patrick Smith.

On the heels of news that Apple would be significantly ramping up its mobile enterprise push in a partnership with IBM, BlackBerry is also looking to step up its game. Today, the company announced that it is appointing a new COO, Marty Beard.

marty beardThis is a poach from the ranks of enterprise startups, but also an example of BlackBerry’s CEO bringing in people he already knows: Beard (pictured right) was most recently at LiveOps, a could-based contact center provider, where he had been the CEO and chairman. But previous to that, Beard worked at Sybase, which is also where Chen was once the CEO.

At Sybase, which is now owned by SAP, he was president of Sybase 365, a unit focused on mobile messaging and mobile commerce services.

BlackBerry says that Beard will be responsible for a number of areas: marketing, BlackBerry 10 apps development, customer care and quality. He…

Peter Schiff on foreign policy; don’t escalate with Russia, and the rise of Hitler was a direct result abuse of Germany after World War I

This is the first time I’ve heard Schiff mention the Holocaust, and he is very much off the Shoah business reservation.

He blames the rise of Hitler and the Holocaust on the treatment of Germany after World War I. Noam Chomsky says the same thing in one of his little pamphlet books.

This is a very revisionist view of the Holocaust. A public school teacher would be fired for saying this.

The Treaty of Versailles and abuse of Germany theory of Holocaust causation means any guilt of Germany is greatly mitigated. Singling out Germany for unique and total guilt is like blaming an abused dog for biting, or an abused child for growing up violent.

Howie: ‘Put God back in politics’- Is it such a good idea?

July 20, 2014

Hiya friends,

 

Do you remember my article from last week on the Hobby lobby protest? Well, if not, you can check it out here.

 

In the article I did my best to express my concerns about the state meddling in religious affairs and visa versa. 

 

We’re seeing more and more that politicians- Christian Politicians- better put, are pushing more and more to break down the wall of separation between the church and state. 

 

On the surface this seems like a great idea for us to have God accepted in the Government and returning back to the foundation on which this great nation was established on.

 

However underneath the lamblike disguise this will be the perfect time for our prosperous nation to begin to speak as a dragon (Revelation 13:11).

 

U.S. Senate candidate Gordon Howie released a one-minute advertisement focused on a religious message yesterday.

RIP Con Devitt

Con Devitt died last Sunday aged 86.

Con was a staunch socialist working class fighter, the like of which  this country has seen too few. Leader of the Boilermakers union and later, the Trade Union Federation, Con improved the lives of many workers and inspired many of the young activists lucky enough to know him. Of all the fine union people I knew, Con made the biggest impression on me.

When I first became a union delegate at Ford Motors I was a green young university dropout, knowing nothing about industrial struggle. Someone told me to go and get some advice from Con. As it happened, his flat at the time was just next to mine, so I went and knocked on the door. Con was getting ready for a party but was prepared to delay mixing with his guests to share some thoughts with…
