F-BOMB $50 surveillance computer hides in your CO detector, cracks your WiFi — Engadget
This is extremely cool and quite unsettling at the same time. Very cheap, mass-produced global surveillance tool.

Quelle surprise: the Wall Street Journal runs a shoddy article by a handful of unqualified climate change deniers, then refuses to publish a rebuttal.
Stressed? It’s the new normal – FT.com
Not really about stress but rather behavioural adaptation to economic instability.
