Why, Sammy?!

Samsung’s SW Update was downloading a program called Disable_Windowsupdate.exe which, true to its name, was disabling Windows Update each time the system started.

I seriously don’t understand why.

The reason that Samsung’s software was doing this in the first place was never entirely clear. A customer service rep told Barker that laptops’ USB 3 ports “may not work” due to Windows Updates, hence the apparent need to disable them. It’s not, however, clear that the rep was suitably authorized or informed to make this statement, and even if true, it’s not clear why Samsung didn’t elect to fix the problem (by issuing the relevant drivers itself) rather than papering over the cracks.

That’s a lame excuse.

Condom That Changes Color

The so-called “S.T.EYE” condom is a conceptual design that changes color when it comes into contact with an STI such as chlamydia or syphilis.

Wow, this is just brilliant!


Oculus Rift

The Rift is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Whether you’re stepping into your favorite game, watching an immersive VR movie, jumping to a destination on the other side of the world, or just spending time with friends in VR, you’ll feel like you’re really there.

Need a rig for this thing to run.

We’ve created Oculus Touch, a new pair of tracked controllers that let you take your VR games and experiences further than ever before.

Just wait for the porn industries…

New Droplet, New Blog

This is really embarrassing, I don’t know how many times I redo my blogs/server.

Ever since Digital Ocean announced FreeBSD, I destroyed my old droplet and tried FreeBSD, but it just seems much slower when compare with other Linux distros. Shouldn’t be this way, did some googling and seems like I am not the only one. Got tired and switched back to CentOS, wasted way too much time playing with FreeBSD.

Anyhow, my old blogs gone, and I think its good, I wanted to redo from fresh anyway. So here I am, a fresh new WordPress blog, and a Ghost blog for my personal site, jimtkm.com.

Welcome to Code & Latte, I will update often.

Updates (10 June, 2015): Both sites are using SSL now.
