About this comic

While this might be a bit extreme in comic form, it’s not that far fetched in truth. Feels like it’s only getting harder to avoid this sort of thing, but maybe it’s just a sign of a healthy competitive journalistic environment? Dunno. All I know is even WIRED.com is getting into the game. I just read a headline there that reads, “How to Use Your Cat to Hack Your Neighbor’s Wi-Fi”. Awesome.

    Between this and the automatic video playing on CNN, I’m starting to think I just shouldn’t even try to read the news any longer.

    Also, Glove and Boots have an excellent video on this topic.
