Dark Deals? How is using coupon codes and hitting up shopping sites = hacking?
12/01 - TVB-gone, already been talked about in our forums and many other online places since it was announced. Decent topic, but he will act like he invented it or something. I predict he will actually go into a store or sports bar and do a video clip of him turning off the TVs with his "1337 hax0ring skillz".
12/02 - Ummm.....yeah.... WTF is this a "dark tip"?
12/03 - see 12/02
12/06 - I just did an episode on BRR of proxy servers last week. But this is a common topic anyway, so no biggie.
12/08 - Again, long time topic but coincidentally (or is it??) this has been a long running thread with ideas being discussed in the binrev forums. Let's see if he jacks any of the specific ideas from posts in that thread.
12/15 - Vague much? What are you going to do...put one of those holographic stickers on the face and call it hacking?
12/16 - see 12/03
So there you have it. Nothing new or unique and even if he DOES come up with something new and unique, it will be something that someone else did that he will take credit for.
