2024-02-21T14:05:22-06:00February 21st, 2024|Categories: KARL, KARZ, KMHL|

Remember when security breaches were just like, "Oh, your credit card has been compromised" . . . or "your personal information has been sold on the dark web." Well, this seems like a step beyond that. The smart camera maker Wyze told users there was a "security glitch" last week that let thousands of users see footage from OTHER PEOPLE'S cameras. For some, maybe that was boring footage of the neighbor's dog pooping on your lawn.  (Again!)  Or nothing at all.  For others, it could've been an invasive look at their entryway . . . their garage . . . or even [...]

Mixing water with electronics is BAD . . . mixing water with uncooked rice is GOOD . . . so what about mixing uncooked rice with water-logged cell phones?

But Apple is warning you NOT to do it.  iPhones are more sophisticated than they used to be, and some can handle certain levels of water.  They now have a "liquid detection" warning that tells you if your USB-C port gets wet. There are things you [...]

2024-02-20T14:57:34-06:00February 20th, 2024|Categories: KARL, KARZ, KMHL|

It's a new era.  A Navy sailor can now have one hand in their pocket, while the other one is givin' a peace sign.  (???) The Navy has lifted its ban on sailors putting their hands in their pockets . . . which, is a major win for sailors who never know what to do with their hands. A service memo says, quote, "Sailors are authorized to have hands in their pockets, when doing so does not compromise safety, nor prohibit the proper rendering of honors and courtesies." They also announced a few uniform changes, including the return of the female combination [...]

2024-02-20T14:53:49-06:00February 20th, 2024|Categories: KARZ, KKCK, KMHL|

 In the middle of winter, it can feel like all you do is WORK.  There's the job that you get paid for . . . and the job, at home, that you DON'T. A new survey asked people to put a PRICE on all the chores they do . . . both around the house, and out running errands.  And the average person says they value it at $134 a day. That would be almost $2,000 per two-week pay-period . . . because chores do NOT stop on the weekends . . . and it would be almost $50K per year. [...]

Here’s Why One Wheel on Your Shopping Cart Is Always Busted

2024-02-19T14:14:08-06:00February 19th, 2024|Categories: KKCK, KMHL|

One of the biggest mysteries in life is why every other shopping cart at the store has a BUSTED WHEEL.  How have we not solved that yet!?   The old myth was that grocery stores did it on purpose to slow you down and make you buy more stuff.  If you could just zip through the aisles, you wouldn't make impulse purchases.  But that's not really true.   According to one of the companies that makes those carts, the real reason behind stuck wheels is more innocent.  The carts just get used A LOT.  And mistreated.   Stuck wheels aren't as [...]

Is this sweet . . . or like a COW getting a birthday card from a BUTCHER.  (???)   A nursing home in the U.K. got a big batch of Valentine's Day cards for its residents, but they weren't from children.  They were from a FUNERAL HOME.   The cards were tastefully done, with a red heart and a pink bow . . . and the residents were supposedly "overjoyed" to receive them.   On the inside, it said, "Sent with love from T.H.
