The Weirdest Thing Happens When Camera Shutter Syncs To Heli’s Rotor

[Editorial] Why The Cybersecurity Industry Is Red Hot Now

Once-upon-a-time, all we had to worry about were the kind of computer security threats that could be swiftly taken care of with a good antivirus and anti-malware application. But today, cyber threats have moved into the big league, and they can take down entire companies, hold governments to ransom, swing elections results, ruin a nation’s infrastructure, and even potentially launch weapon strikes. Technology is a wonderful thing, but sometimes you have to wonder if it’s been worth it. As Oppenheimer, the father of the nuclear bomb, lamented of his technology —”I am become death, the destroyer of worlds,”—we might stop and wonder at the power that we have given the systems that control our daily lives, enabling disruption to those systems that could Continue reading [Editorial] Why The Cybersecurity Industry Is Red Hot Now

A Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog Finally Made Sense

This video is actually nearly a decade old now but hey, if we never heard of it, it is still newsworthy, right? Anyways, I am sure you have heard of the famous pangram, “a quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” You know, the sentence which everyone picking up the art of typing will need to master? Well, if that sentence makes zero sense to you, apart from containing all the alphabets, then Jashi, a quick (and super adorable) brown fox, is here to help you make sense of it. In this video, Jashi playfully tried to jump over Romi, a nonchalant Akita dog and eventually succeeded, and thus dispelling the argument of the pangram makes no sense.

Team Mikeshouts Wishes Everyone Out There A Very Happy 2017!

As we stepped into 2017, we reflect on what we have achieved in 2016 and it was, well, nothing. I know it sounds kind of sad and it is. Initially, there was a huge plan for the site as we were crossing into 2016, but it was shelved indefinitely due to unforeseeable circumstances. The thing is, while you guys saw were just words, there are actually much happening behind the scene. A blog like this, is almost like a movie or TV series (except that it does not end), has a significant amount of inner workings which we shan’t burden you with. Anyways, there’s no point crying over our spilled milk, or in our case, spilled booze. And so, for the very first time, we are going to set a team’s New Year resolution and that’s to bring more contents per day (and hopefully, everyday). Continue reading Team Mikeshouts Wishes Everyone Out There A Very Happy 2017!

Sorry Folks, Electric Cars May Not Be As Green As You Thought To Be

Elon Musk is deeply concerned about how automobile emissions are destroying the world as we know it and hence, the man is a fervent proponent of electric cars (and also, hence Tesla Motors). But are electric cars really as green as we think? Well, you don’t need Adam from truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything to tell it is not quite so. First of all, where do you think the electricity that your lovely Tesla Model 3 needs is from? The grid, of course and where did the grid get the electric energy from? Obviously, the power plants. Now, the source of the electricity pretty much determines whether the electric car you drives is mostly green or not.
