'Captcha' Codes Don't Really Work.

No shit genius…Everytime I submit a posting to Craigslist I am always greeted at one point by a ‘Captcha’ (Completely Automated Public Turing tests to tell Computers and Humans Apart) security code; which is used to determine whether I am a spam-spewing robot selling timeshares in Florida. From what I understand, it isn’t uncommon for one to request another generated code. More often than not, squinting and distressing over the lack of necessary symbols has to occur before you can give away your $9.99 IKEA LACK side table.

The Daily Mail posted a story today saying that researchers at Stanford University have been able to break most Captcha codes with their software. The software is aptly able to dissect the code into something far more readable; sans strike-throughs, close spacing and distortion. The boffins at Stanford were able to crack 93 per cent of the codes on big sites such as Visa, eBay and World of Warcraft. It would be wise to roll out this software in app form so I can stop dealing with this:

Because you would have to be a SpamBot to figure some of these Captchas out.

Now playing…Earth, Wind and Fire- That’s the way of the world.

What’s in a name? Hysteria.

Fashion Talk…Recently Vogue Italia was at the center of a backlash after delicately terming a new accessory trend as ‘slave’. The high-fashion magazine featured a new accessories piece on its website showing huge, hooped-earrings under the heading “Slave Earrings, Hoop Earrings: A Classic Always in Evolution.” Vogue Italia has since issued a public apology in an article citing that, “If the name brings to mind the decorative traditions of the women of color who were brought to the southern United States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom.” And, absolute style. But seriously, this is how the fashion industry works and I am still quite impressed that the industry continues to shock. Although, I believe it was an insensitive move, the way forward is dialogue and this isn’t encouraged by silence.

Models, designers and people who can’t afford high-fashion all came out to declare this a racial slur. Vogue Italia also admonished that the incident may boil down to a translation issue. It is fair to mention that Vogue Italia did print an all black model edition back in 2008—maybe they thought that qualified for a pass? 

Former supermodel, icon and wife of David Bowie, Iman said: “They might as well have called them nigga earrings.” What Iman didn’t know is that the item was initially called, “Put two rings in their ears so you can chain ‘em up and they will never leave the land they work on after you whip ‘em.”

But editorially, it didn’t seem to flow as well.

Now playing…The Specials-Ghost Town

Remember how dark and uncomfortable this song made you feel when you first heard it? You know how it always reminds you of the Tories, Thatcher and riots?

Now try and remember the lessons we learned from that time.

Don’t worry, I’ll wait…
