Breaking Bad Interview

This is the interview with Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring that you’ve been waiting for

This is the interview with Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring that you’ve been waiting for

In the annals of television history, you’d be hard pressed to find a more iconic and arguably beloved “bad guy” than Gustavo Fring from Breaking Bad. Played brilliantly by the talented Giancarlo Esposito, Fring was a ruthless drug kingpin whose understated demeanor only served to make him all the more menacing.

This past Sunday, I was lucky enough to witness Esposito and RJ Mitte (who played the role of Walt Jr.) interviewed during a 45-minute panel discussion about everyone’s favorite meth-based drama. The panel took place during Walker Stalker Con, convention primarily geared for fans of The Walking Dead. More →

How to stop Samsung’s smart TVs from spying on you

By on February 11, 2015 at 11:35 AM.

Last week, we told you about just how scary Samsung’s smart TV privacy policy was. One quote from Samsung’s terms and conditions says it all: “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition.” Yikes.

Samsung has since responded twice to the uproar surrounding its privacy policy, explaining that the aforementioned statement is a precaution intended to cover a scenario that is highly unlikely to occur.

All the same, however, it can occur — but there’s an easy way to make sure that it’s impossible for your Samsung smart TV to accidentally spy on you. More →
