2 Scoops

“Draconian privacy policies hit TWiT” drama2901

This is Judge. Allegedly

Please remember that this website is a bunch of trolls as you read this:  As fans of TWiT we have all learned what some websites do with our information. TWiT has often covered (other reporters reports on) updated privacy policies. Guess who just joined the club of crazy privacy policies?

This policy leaves no stone unturned, they seemingly grab it all and share with practically anyone. We encourage our readers to read the whole thing on their website and not rush to judgement but we clipped the basics for you lazy people. The […] denote where we cut and the italics and boldface are ours.

Wow, remember when Leo went nuts on Facebook for combining information with outside sources. There must be good money in this though. I guess we know how him and his chat mods track us all down.

A close call for Leo Laporte

Update: Leo actually played this video on the pre-show to Sunday’s “TWiT.” Click here to read updated post.

Leo Laporte, known by a dwindling few as “The Tech Guy,” narrowly avoids being “taken.” Thank God he’s OK. Otherwise we’d have to send out a team of highly-trained individuals with a very particular set of skills.

Google Confirms #TotalDrama findings

It seems the nerds at Google, Inc. know what they’re doing. No wonder @profjeffparvis is such a fan. It appears the waning interest in the notorious know-it-all is actually confirmed by science. Based on high-level scripts and [ro]bots combing the entire Internet and meticulously calculating every bit of information, the findings forecast the man will be done by 2015.

#TotalDrama didn’t need to show you this unassailable proof—as we have known this all along—but we felt the few remaining hold-outs in the hellholish #twitlive could use the factoids.
