It can be hard to picture what the neighborhoods of Joplin, MO looked like before a tornado came through and flattened pretty much everything. But this comparison shot using Google Street view makes the destruction painfully clear.
Missouri photographer Aaron Fuhrman went and tok a photo of the scene on a corner in Joplin, then compared it to a Street View shot from the same location. It's shocking, more shocking than the photos of destruction alone. A perfectly normal neighborhood, gone in a span of minutes. Terrifying.

Hard as it may be to believe, Sony has been hacked yet again.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, So-net Entertainment Corp., a Japanese ISP owned by the technology giant, said that hackers accessed its customer rewards site earlier this week and stole customers' redeemable gift points worth about $1,225.
The incident is the latest in a weeks-long string of hacks and breaches of security for Sony. The trouble began on April 19, when the company began investigating and ultimately discovered a massive breach of security on its PlayStation Network, a cyber scandal that compromised the personal information of more than 100 million users.

If you aren’t familiar with who Anonymous is, then let me quickly fill you in. Anonymous is the name of an online group of people that come from all walks of life and stand for social justice. Online or offline. This group of people are made up of ‘hacktivists’ and the curious. But besides the political aspect, they also do things for the “lulz”. Meaning that the group of talented anonymous users like to stage big elaborate pranks.
Operation UFO is one of their latest pranks. On May 22nd, 2011 at around 8:00 pm EST the operation is set to commence. The plan is simple, flood UFO websites with fake reports of a triangular UFO. Then just sit back and watch the world go crazy. LOL.
