EFFYOU.ORG: The EFFYOU this week goes to TSA Chief, JOHN PISTOLE
He looks a little like General Ripper from the Stanley Kubrick classic Dr. Strangelove, doesn’t he? And it’s an ironic likeness since this guy is batshit insane with paranoia.

Got any suggestions for who should get the next EFFYOU? Let me know!
Chinese woman sentenced to a year in a labor camp for a tweet (via Gawker)
I’ve been complaining a lot about the US police state, as mild as it is, but seeing this in my Tumblr stream reminds me of just how mild our police state is in the US.
Apparently, Cheng Jianping, RTed her fiance’s tweet about really sticking it to Japan by destroying the Japanese Expo pavilion in Shanghai—she apparently added a comment that jokingly encouraged China’s youth to go do exactly that. Of course, any moron could see that she was kidding, but the commie bastards that run China’s government stuck her in a labor camp for “disturbing social order.” Ah yeah, by joking.
The only place we can’t joke, here in the US, is during a TSA security check.
Read more about it on Gizmodo. Not sure why they were blogging about this story, but then Gizmodo does waste a LOT of time with posts having jack to do with gadgets. Sounds like SOMEbody needs to spend some time in a Chinese labor camp! ;)
Link: I TOTALLY want to do this: How to Install Android on an iPhone in Six Easy Steps
And I just might!
Seeing how smoothly it works on an iPhone 2G makes me reeeeally want to see how well it works on a 3G—MY 3G. Especially since I’ve been so SICK of iOS and iTunes giving me endless shit about what I can and can’t do.
What’s really great is that, apparently, you can dual boot—so it leaves your iOS install untouched. Pretty cool.
If I do it, I’ll be sure to take pics and/or video…
