Two items of interest this evening. First, Microsoft Corp. is recalling Xbox Power Cords. Check out the recall website here. Second, after being accused of misplacing a Target giftcard I used to purchase a lamp, it was determined the one in my lovely wife's wallet was the card I used as I told her. Howerver it took checking the balance on target.com to reveal that I was right. I love being right. :-)

Some or all of you may have heard of Spoofing or Phishing. It is an attempt by a rogue email and website to get you to send them confidential financial information. Credit card and account numbers, pins, etc. Very personal information. Un-educated (Dumb, maybe) peole fall for the prank. Below is a image of paypal Phish, the email wants me to think I need to do what it says. However the link in the message does not take me to paypal.com but to this address http://www.carina.sorescu.go.ro/ that is clearly someone in a foreign country trying to steal my shit. Beaware. Bastards.
