Humorous SOPA Comment

Category: eGovernment,Humour,Internet,SecurityTeknovis @ 10:29

Happy New Year everybody! I hope that it will be a good one for you! I thought that I would start the year with something light-hearted :)

I have not been following the recent Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) arguments, but I know enough about it to know that I am against it :) Anyway, I came across the following humorous comment by Dave Piscitello:

If #SOPA passes, supporters will seek to change Internet’s TCP/IP to Trademark Copyright Patent/Intellectual Property

English Person Google Bomb

Category: Humour,InternetTeknovis @ 09:46

This week I heard of another fun Google Bomb – a search for “what defines an English person” takes you to the Wikipedia definition of Cunt!

Unsurprisingly, this may not be suitable for viewing in work!

STD Cards

A family friend recently asked me where was the best place to buy a STD Card! It was obvious from the conversation that she really meant a SD Card, but it was still hilarious!

In fairness, it is actually an appropriate name when you consider how many devices these cards are now inserted into!

Facebook and You

Somebody was discussing the virtues and dangers of Facebook with me recently, and he subsequently sent me this cartoon summarising his feelings :)

In fairness, this could equally be applied to Amazon‘s new Silk browsing experience! See Amazon’s Silk looks creepily Phorm-ulaic.
