Biz, Tech: Adbusters wants to “unclick Google” in a new protest

  • They created a subversive Greasemonkey script. Adbusters, who, as you might guess by the name, like to bust the chops of advertisers, dislikes the company’s new customized ad services and to protest, they’ve created a new script that clicks on every single ad on a page. Their end goal? To create a script that clicks on the ads AND removes them from every page they’re on. Ah, to be stupid kids with counterculture ethos. source

Tech: Camera phones could have to click with the law

  • A new bill is making a clicking noise. Republican Rep. Peter King of New York recently introduced a bill to Congress that would force cell-phone-makers to have their phones make a “clicking” noise whenever they’re used, so as to prevent the shooter from using their phones as spy cameras. We’re not sure how we feel about this – it seems like there’s arguments for and against a bill like this. However, there appears that the bill is stuck in committee, so it may not even be an issue. source
