Binary Nation #01101110: The Case of the Missing Homophone 

The night was gloomier than a BlackBerry corporate earnings call, and wetter than an OtterBox. Normally I wouldn’t have met a client outside of my office. But, this odd Scandinavian would only meet me at a certain diner on a certain evening… and I had a certain empty bank account and certain bills past due to coerce me into meeting with him. Me? I’m Jack Dinn. I’m a private geek. It’s what I do to keep the Internet on. I stepped into the diner and shook rain from my jacket....

Binary Nation #01101101: New Resolution—Vote No on 4K 

A few years ago, everyone involved in the visual entertainment industry was going ape-poop crazy over 3D movies. Hollywood and the consumer electronics manufacturers wanted all of us to run faster than a knock-off Rolex to our local Cineplex Barn (72 screens! Nothing on!) to watch movies with 3D glasses pasted over our peepers. That experience was supposed to inspire all of us to replace our crappy hi-definition home theatre gear with brand new 3D movie players hooked up to brand new 3D...

Hello, my American friends. There has been a lot of talk recently about the gun problem, or the lack of a gun problem, in your country.
