Re: 1931: "Virtual Assistant"

I just want my phone to be in a bad mood from time to time. "Ok, Google-" "What the actual fuck do you need from me that's soooo urgent that you can't just type?" This might be better than what I was thinking. I basically read the comic a second time in Patton Oswalt's voice in ...

Re: 1918: "NEXUS"

Hopefully someone will add this to ExplainXKCD (edit: I just did), but there is another layer of nuance to this comic (Soupspoon vaguely mentioned it).

Re: 0937: TornadoGuard

This is exactly why at NewEgg I filter the 1's first then the 2's before going any farther.

Re: 0936: "Password Strength"

I don't understand all this talk of various automated and computerized password attacks. If we're talking about corporate america as a target the policies are based upon a relatively standardized ruleset based on a person's position and department. More common policies of which to be aware are as fo...
