5 Million Gmail Usernames and Possible Passwords Leaked

 

!!IMPORTANT!!

This is a public tech update for all friends, family and fellows, recently a huge database of gmail usernames were posted online; NO, Google was not hacked! (unlike Apple), but there are affiliated passwords linked to said email accounts. It may not be the same password as your, but it could be.

Anyone who wants to can check if they are listed in the database by going to https://isleaked.com/en and entering in your email (and yes it’s safe). You can also double check the database by looking here and searching for your email (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5Ubvdjb2dQUR0FXM09rWkNCTFU/edit?usp=sharing). Some may have already received the courtesy email from IMDb, and I assure you that this did happen and Google was not hacked.

My Summer 2014 Anime Suggestions

For all my fellow anime lovers out there I thought I’d share my watch list for this summer season.

Sword Art Online II:

Second season of SAO (Gun Gale arc), Kirito is sent into a new MMOFPS game after some strange deaths have happened to the players, and gets a really special avatar that makes him look kind of like a girl, but is starting to get awesome.

Sword Art Online II

Akame ga Kill:

Pretty awesome action fantasy anime about a rebel group of assassins and some fanservice.

Akame ga Kill

Re: Hamatora (Hamatora S2):

Picks up where season 1 left off and is about some awesome super powered evolved humans. Full of action and mystery,  and had some good humor too.

Re: Hamatora

Tokyo Ghoul:

About a kid who gets ghoul organs transplanted into him and he them becomes half ghoul. So far it’s a bit of drama and mystery mixed with some nice action and folkloric themes.

Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo ESP:

Action anime about people being selected by flying spirit fish and then gaining esper powers. Pretty awesome so far.

Tokyo ESP

The Irregular at Magic High School:

All I can say is it’s freaking awesome, watch it!

The Irregular at Magic High

Aldnoah.Zero:

Best mech anime this season. Humans of Mars vs. Earth

Aldnoah.Zero

Also, if you missed last seasons “Black Bullet” or “No Game No Life” You need to go back and watch them.

No Game No Life
Black Bullet

The most honest three and a half minutes of television, EVER… Must watch!


on Jan 16 @Facebook & @Instagram will own & sell your name, likeness, all photos, and more; #DeleteInstagram



Jesse Wojdylo started the: Unofficial Delete Your Instagram Account Grassroots Program

 

Today Instagram unleashed brand-new terms of service, and they are not good ones. They have decided that they are going to use you to make money and pay you nothing…

 

New Instagram ToS: “you agree that a business … may pay us to display your photos in connection with paid or sponsored content … without any compensation to you. “

Some or all of the Service may be supported by advertising revenue. To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you.

http://instagram.com/about/legal/terms/updated/

 

What to do:

First you’ll want to download all of your photos. Instaport will download your entire Instagram photo library in just a few minutes. Currently the service only offers a zip file download of your photos, then you have all your photos to yourself to put in a new place (Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, Streamzoon, etc…)

 

After you’ve removed your photos from Instagram, you can quickly delete your account 


Now What?:

Many people probably are thinking, okay, now how do I share and store my photos? Honestly, there’s a lot of sites that you can store your photos on; Flickr, Facebook, PhotobucketShutterflyDropbox, and SkyDrive, and others, but my personal favorite is Picasa. Picasa has seamless integration into all that is Google (G+, Blogger, emails, Drive, etc…), hence why I like it, but there isn’t a “Share All”/”Share to Facebook”/”Share to twitter” type of button (there should be though).

But most people want to be able to share to Facebook, Twitter, etc and all at once. The best app I know are EyeEm and Streamzoo, but there are others. Streamzoo is a lot like a mixture between foursquare and Instagram. It also has all the photo ability of Instagram (but more) and also has a point and contest/awards system too.

Dealing with @Centurylink and their shit … #win @comcast #android

Get home and Internet isn’t working…
Power cycled router still nothing; rechecked settings and tried to force connect, nothing.
Call Qwest/CenturyLink … get automated answering system
Go through the steps; press 1, press 2, etc…
Tells me Internet is down in the area and they’re working on it, then it hangs up. -.-

I Ended Up Imitating My Girlfriend, But Worse…

I ended up imitating my GF while she was gone, but worse… I had a lot more oil in the wok that I wasn’t paying attention to (well i was next to it, waiting for it to heat up while watching YouTube) and instead of it just catching the bottom of the pan on fire, the entire pot of oil went up and while trying to put it out my sleeve caught on fire; severely burning the crap out of my hand, and then I thought, set it in the sink and try to find a way to cover it. And it spilled into the sink causing a huge fire…. the whole sink was ablaze…. On the Bright side, it was the first time I have ever had a real fire in the kitchen, my hand that got burnt is the one with little feeling, it was an old shirt and the only loss was a plastic container that melted causing all the Black.

And the craziest thing that happened; while the smoke alarm was going off for life 10+ minutes, my neighbors were just yelling at me to be quiet and to shut up lol.

The Best Android Apps for Tablets and Phones

So since a lot of people have come to me to ask about Android and apps, or something else android, I thought I’d put up a list of the apps I use most (free and paid). I use apps that I think are best at what they do, or simply because they’re the most fun to play lol. I will separate the apps into “Tablet”, “Phone”, and “Both” and will discuss the apps I find to be the best and what they do.

 ********My Tablet Contains About 250+ Apps – Hence the Long list ********

(These aren’t all the apps, they are the most used and favored apps I have on my devices & I recommend to others)
Also: Some of these apps have PC/Mac/Linux counter parts.
(Almost all the games do for sure)

Both:
 
Internet Browser: Chrome - my favorite browser onmy PC and my Android devices, works amazing!
Music: Google Play Music - Music stored in the cloud, no storage needed for my music anymore.
Navigation: Maps - Allows you to use GPS navigation, rate restaurant, check-in to venues, and share your location with friends and family.
  • Utility Apps:
    • -= Save my Attach =- - is a great app for saving attachments from those pesky e-mails that have unsupported file types within Android (which as new versions of Android come along is getting to be less)
    • App Cache Cleaner - a necessary tool on all android devices and should be ran a 2-3 times a week (or more if you have very little space on your phone or own a tablet (On my tablet I run this every 2 days or more, but my tablet is also my primary usage device, use it more than my computer even)
    • ES File Explorer - THE best file explore there is anywhere on the market. It can create it’s own FTP for remote access to phone or tablet, it can be a root explorer, as well as you can link to LAN computers, FTP servers, and even has built-in Dropbox, Box, SugarSync, Google Drive, and SkyDrive setups ready to go and allows multiple accounts of each. (It has it all, it is an invaluable tool)
    • DiskUsage - a great app to see how much space is on you SDCard or internal and what is taking up all the space.
    • 920 Text Editor - just your basic text editor, but does one hell of an amazing job
    • Adobe Flash Player 11.1 - if you want to see flash online you’ll need this app (for Jelly Bean you just have to side load the application (download the .apk and install it manually)
    • Irssi ConnectBot - My favorite app for TTS connecting to my home server, a great too that is similar to PuTTy, but for android
    • IVONA Text-to-Speech HQ & IVONA Amy UK English beta - I hate the default Pico TTS voice, it’s too robotic and sucks, so this app makes you like hearing your phone talk and is amazing!
    • MX Player - Best video player on the market
    • TeamViewer - Remote view/control your home PC from your phone or tablet
  • Everyday (Grocery Lists / ToDo etc):
    • Grocery iQ - Tablet // Grocery iQ - a way for my GF and I to share a grocery list and even have it separated by store and be able to not only have a list, but also scan items into the app. Also it allows you to enter in the price of the item too so you can price check when at other stores or see when a product has changed price
    • Any.DO - an awesome ToDo list app that syncs with your Google tasks as well as you can share your tasks with your spouse. It is super simple and sleek, simplistic but still perfect.
    • Key Ring - Remove all those rewards cards from you wallet and purse, go digital with this app and get rid of the clutter!

    • Dropbox - enough said
    • Evernote & Evernote Widget - Evernote is my favorite note taking app ever, the ability it has amazing, not to mention when paired with Skitch you can even draw diagrams to your notes.
    • StudyBlue -  the best app for studying anything there is, is a great companion to Evernote since you can sync the two together and make flashcards, review sheets, and quizzes from your notes easily.
    • myHomework - Keep track of all your homework for every class and get daily reminders (syncs to online for viewing from PC or other android/iOS device)
    • Merriam Webster - the best dictionary around
    • OfficeSuite - Open any office document and even edit right from your phone or tablet
  • Social Media Style Apps

    • Falcon for Twitter - a desktop widget to get an instant view of twitter as well as “share” to Falcon
    • Foursquare - For checking in to my favorite venues
    • GetGlue -  To check into movies, tv shows, books, games, and more (you earn stickers that you can get in real life in the mail for free), it also allows you to mark the things you like, dislike, or favorite and you can write reviews for them.

Anger of Aid and Greed for @WSUPullman && @WSUVancouver Part2

This is one their logos, world class my ass!

This is one their logos, world class my ass!

So I have talked to more financial aid people in the past week than I have ever in my collective time in college. The most fucked up part of it all, is the fact that each person in the office has been blaming the new system, a system which they decided to switch to a few weeks before the new semester started. Tell me, how is this a smart decision and what kind of BABOON! would agree to such a decision!? If this is how the college is being ran, perhaps they need a new president! and some new faces in the boardroom. A bunch of tired old men controlling the functional behavior of a school in the 21st Century that uses computer systems, servers, exchange accounts, and more. It totally reminds me of the United States Government, a bunch of tired old rich bitches that do not understand the technologies of today making decisions that control, regulate, or something, even a child can see that is a problem. A person who doesn’t understand what a “bug report” is should never attempt to ever dictate how technology is used let alone decide to get different systems 3 weeks before classes start. Seriously it is common sense! This is just an unacceptable way to run a school.

In my previous post, I posted about how financial aid is late and telling everyone that it is just a little late, but will be out soon, and now they are calling it a mistake within the system and funds were never going to be distributed till 17th – 20th. Now that they have decided to change their story, guess what? that’s right they still have not done almost anything. Students all over, between Pullman and Vancouver are still waiting for their funds. Students are getting told different things by different people. Some students have been told checks will mail out on Wed, others are being told their DIRECT deposit won’t be in till Friday at the earliest and myself, I was told that I would get my money today, but guess what? it is not here…maybe they meant tomorrow…or the next day.

As it stands Pullman and their financial aid office control everything for all the students at both campuses, and do not really seem to care about the students lives or well beings. Today a student was told by their financial aid counselor that she needs to just use her credit cards instead or borrow from her family, if that were possible do they not realize that we already have thought of that, perhaps we are old enough to know how things work and no longer rely on our parents or family to pay for everything? Right…so let me just fill you in, her as well as many others (myself included) have an estimated family contribution (EFC) score of 0, meaning no one is available to help them out with finances, they are not getting any help. They like myself live off financial aid and some even pick up some part-time work to help pay the rest of their bills. It is hard enough to live off just Aid and a part-time job can help a bit, but it’s still tough going full-time and penny-pinching.

It is their job as our school, they get paid from our private and federal loans (which we have to pay back), yet they can not seem to manage their own systems properly and instead screw every student that is dependant on the aid. Their solution is to borrow from family until your aid come in to survive and get a week behind in class because no one strictly on aid can afford to buy books since there is no aid yet. The money is locked in their systems just sitting there and they are slowly processing each student one by one.

The biggest thing that baffles my mind is other students in my same predicament, we have been processed and they have paid off our tuition, but the rest of the money that we are going into debt over has not been giving to us, instead it is in the system sitting there. How the hell does this happen, they process our funds and pay the school, but they just skip the step of giving us the amount left from our private loans? How does this even happen? Did they decide it was more important to pay themselves before giving their students the money they desperately need!. Seriously, this a big problem!


Anger of Aid and Greed for @WSUPullman && @WSUVancouver

Washington State University/WSU-Vancouver really need to fix their financial aid department!. You do not tell all students they will be getting their money on a certain day and then just not give it to them! Some students live off financial aid, and as hard as it apparently is for the the board to comprehend, even the slightest change in money flow can upset the fine balance a student has developed. Not receiving aid on time can result in loss of food, unpaid bills, not able to buy books (because some of them sell out FAST!), and possibly loosing their apt for late payments. Not only is the financial aid department metaphorically and physically screwing over students with late payment, but the board without student consult decided to raise the tuition by 17%, yet refused to give students extra financial aid. These actions not only make it hard for any student, especially those that have no estimated family contribution currently rely solely on aid for everything (until they can find some work study availability).
 
Way to go guys, a state school that used to be a very great school and have a great reputation is being flushed down the proverbial toilet because the people in charge are greedy sons of bitches. Oh and the kicker of it all is, the only compensation we are recieving for being so inconvenienced, is an extension on late fees! do you really think that helps very much!? Whatever happened to a school that just longed to teach its students knowledge and help progress the collective knowledge of the human race? The only thing that any school seems to care about is money! Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and all the other great minds of the past would be appalled at the change. But if money is what you are oh so worried about, how would you feel if every student decided to change and go to University of Washington or Estern Washington University?  Might put a damper or your wallets, right? Well stop screwing over your students and they might help you save money in other parts of the school.
