Lone Star Ruby Conference 2009

I must say that the conference this year was amazing. This is the first time I have been to a Ruby conference. Though I could have easily learned any of the subjects presented myself, the insight and enthusiasm from the speakers gave me better ideas for implementation and more excitement to actually do something.

I have been inspired and now I want to give a talk next year.

I am still stoked from the experience.

Apple Exploits

Hackers are having a seeming field day with Apple products. Between the Apple Keyboard Firmware hack, the Intel processor firmware hack (this one is OS agnostic), and the iPhone SMS hack it's a bad day to be an Apple fanboy or user.

I'll stick to doing my online banking on my Linux machine.
