Review: Able Planet Clear Harmony SI1000 Sport Earphones

Able Planet SI1000Able Planet recently sent me a pair of their Clear Harmony SI1100 sport earphones featuring their LINX AUDIO technology to test out. These are in-ear earphones with a twist, they have rubber hooks or arms that rotate into place behind your ears to keep the earbuds in place. If you’ve ever worn plain in-ear cans, you’ll know they eventually wiggle out no matter how tightly or far in you shove them, especially if you’re doing something active.

Harmony 1000 Universal Remote w/ Color Touchscreen

If you’re a regular reader of our site, you’ll know we love the Harmony universal remotes from Logitech. This particular one does not disappoint. It’s a bit different from the others that have the standard form-factor of an A/V remote, can be held in one hand and with lots of buttons. It’s more like a game controller or a Nintendo DS, with a 3.5″ color touchscreen.

Review: Logitech Harmony 688 Remote

Review: Logitech Harmony 688 Remote

How many remotes does it take for you to control all of your entertainment devices? Even with ‘universal’ remotes, I still had to use some of my ‘native’ remotes for one function or another, and ended up using three different remotes to control five different devices. This seems to be a common problem in entertainment rooms, the other problem being the difficulty of using the remotes. Harmony has conquered both problems.

Password Breaches Require New Thinking

Password breaches are becoming more and more common on web sites as hacker groups seemingly obtain hashed (and sometimes clear) passwords almost on a weekly basis from various web providers. This past week alone had three high profile password leaks with LinkedIn, eHarmony and Last.FM.

LinkedIn, a professional networking site, may have leaked as many as 6.4 million passwords. The password hashes are one-way encrypted versions of passwords meaning the password cannot be derived from the password hash. Hackers use pre-computed tables called Rainbow Tables to run through a dictionary of hashes comparing against the password hashes to arrive at the cleartext password. By the time the passwords were leaked on the Internet, several password hashes had been altered as the hackers that originally obtained the password dump had compromised those passwords already.

eHarmony was the next victim with as many as 1.5 million passwords stolen. The signs lead to the leak being performed by the same hackers as LinkedIn.
