We finally know why the Olympic diving pool turned green

We all have bad days on the job. But when your bad day involves accidentally turning the world’s most famous swimming pool (right now) an unnerving shade of green, it’s not a fair comparison.

The New York Times discovered the truth behind the oddly-colored Olympic diving and water polo pools at the Rio Olympics. A maintenance worker added 160 liters of hydrogen peroxide to the pool 10 days ago, neutralizing the chlorine and letting all manner of nastiness grow in the water.

Comcast wants to charge you for privacy or sell your browsing history to advertisers

As if there weren’t enough reasons to hate internet service providers, Comcast is giving you a brand new one. The company wants to be able to charge you more to better protect your privacy, or offer you cheaper plans as long as it’s able to sell your data to advertisers. And by data, we mean all of your browsing history, which is something most people go out of their way to guard. More →

Kickass Torrents Online KAT Clones

Kickass Torrents is back but don’t trust any of the clones just yet

Kickass Torrents is back but don’t trust any of the clones just yet

Anyone who used to get their movie fix via torrenting sites are probably still mourning the unexpected departure of Kickass Torrents (KAT). The site became the world’s biggest piracy resource after The Pirate Bay went offline for more than a month following a police raid in December 2014. However, the US government led an operation that ultimately took down Kickass Torrents this week. The site went down almost immediately after its alleged owner was arrested in Poland a few days ago.

Since then, Kickass Torrents resumed activity online, but you should be very wary of the unofficial sites that pop up after takedowns like this. Some of them may have ulterior motives in mind apart from simply restoring a renowned piracy site. More →
