So I'm watching the broken...

40 posts in this topic

I've seen the show before and I'm not here to start some "I hate kevin rose" topic. RantTV just got through playing it, and I just started wondering.

Why is it in the third episode they bleeped out the word "fuck". But not "shit"

And in the first episode they didn't beep a fucking shit thing at all?

So again..how is this underground.

I mean what the ****!

Because Kevin Rose is a n00b.

Seriously, it looks like they're using Canadian or British television standards for some reason on the later episodes. You can say "shit" all you want, but not "fuck". It's weird. Write them an email and see what they say. And ask them to do another cool bit on wardriving and SEing free pizza! We need more of that!

I got a cool idea. Lets mass email them and ask them to do something unscripted or hmm... Something technical at least. I'm sure Kevin could dig through his big "pile of stuff I steal" and find some one elses text and regurgitate it back up on camera and suddenly make it cool for the masses (so he thinks) The only useful thing the broken could do for the community in it's next episode is discuss the technology of our modern railways, and then both of them touch the 3rd rail. Good riddance!

Either that or I'd like one of them to get bitten in the ass on camera by they're crappy social engineering.. I'd waste space on the hard drive to see the police on they're show.

If you notice in the first episode, they come out with a completely different pizza.... one that they paid for. It's something like canadian bacon when they wanted their "bad one" to be replaced with the same type.

Fucking noobs, they didn't even get real free pizza, it was all staged.

Dipshits.

Not even counting the three stages of hell they went through to get it instead of doing it the easy way...

When I first saw The Broken, I hadn't been watching TechTV in a while except for X-Play (because I like knowing about video games, but rarely if ever play them because of my work schedule and the fact I don't own an X-Box/PS2/Gamecube...plus Morgan Webb is hot)...so I didn't know who the hell Rose was. I looked at it and thought "How much money do these trust fund babies HAVE to waste on something like this? That's GOT to be at least a 3CCD miniDV camera if not an actual Betacam, and that room looks more like a set than a bedroom...and they STOLE a NOFX song!!" Then the topics of the show were wardriving and SEing free pizza. However, this was before I'd seen HackTV and started listening to the online radio shows really, so I didn't know it'd been done a thousand times before and better. I DO remember thinking "That seems to be a lot of trouble to go through for a shitty pizza..."

I ended up deleting them without burning them because I needed the hard drive space for the old D&D saturday morning cartoon. That's how little I cared about re-watching them.

Yeah, but the bow made out of energy that the ranger has is so cool, so who could blame you...

That show was SO fucking lame...I thought it would be like Transformers, where I re-watch a cartoon I enjoyed in my youth and find out it still holds up. Then I remembered I thought the show sucked even when I was a kid.

It was almost never on when I was a kid, but I doubt it'd hold up. Most of those shows were terrible, though.

Transformers, gijoe, and spiderman and friends are the only shows that can really hold up from that time period, I think. The rest are pathetic. Maybe thundercats is borderline...

I agree, "Hacking with Ramzi" is the only reason to watch the show.

Ramzi is the l337est haxor out there!

If only Kevin had thought of ripping off HaxXxor with Sarah Lane as the star of the show, lol.

Oh, you mean that horrible "hacker porn" thing? Where a girl is obviously reading a textfile while she's undressing....but when she actually undresses the segment ends and goes on to the next one. What the hell is the point of HaxXxor?

I visited the haXXXor site, and amazingly found something interesting...

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money Laundering activities, federal law requires us to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who has a Sellers Account or is/has receiving/ed funds in the capacity of Sellers regardless of the account type chosen at signup. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address and a valid working url/website or other information that will allow us to identify you

Can anyone verify the truth or nontruth of this? I'm a little skeptical about this, because cash is anonymous and has no information about the person spending it, nor the person recieving it. Why would a system like yowcow be different.

<obDigitalCashRant>

We have cash, which for all intents and purposes is anonymous. The cash can be tracked through the system, but individuals making use of it can not be. Cash is also property. Why can we not have the equivilant of this in the electronic world? The algorithms exist, and have existed for a long time. Places like egold could in theory come close, but the partners it works with ensure that personally identifiable information exists, and egold does not guarantee that you have access to your money in all cases except a court order. At their discretion, they can deny you access to your property, so it's not at all the same.

This sort of thing tends to bother me, on so many levels...

I have met the haxxor folks at several cons and they are pretty nice people. The whole point of haxxx0r is to be funny with a little erotica mixed in. They don't want you to believe that these are real haxxor chicks. It is all softcore pr0n with a little bit of a fun niche market edge to it. It is harmless fun.

They even poke fun at themselves and the negative feedback in the second disc, i mean come on...naked dumpster diving? :lol: How is that not the most hilarious thing ever?!? :lol:

HAXXX0R = :voteyes:

The technicalities of having anonymous digital cash have been solved, at least from a theoretical sense. In Steven Levy's book Crypto there's a guy (I forget his name and how it worked) that came up with an ingenious way to impliment this. The problem is that no government, especially in this day and age, is interested in implimenting such a system. Governments want more control, always. They would never go out of their way to impliment something that reduces their control. The government would love to have federally regulated wallets with RFID that automaticly tells the government how much money is on your person at every purchase point. Retailers would be required to have the scanners imbedded near the cash register for this purpose.

But anyway, that's enough of a tangent on government control and the new world order... ;).

The interview with kevin mitnick was pretty cool.

It really would have been had I not seen it done better by Leo Laport before. Kevin even asked alot of the same questions and had him demo the same CID spoof that he did.

When I first saw the broken I thought it was ok, I still do, but I lost a lot of respect for Kevin when I found out that he was regurgitating other hard work without giving proper credit. On the other hand, he has done a million times more than my ass has ever done so I give him credit for that.

Morgan Webb > Sarah Lane

:P

Precisely. Sarah lane looks to be about 5 feet tall. A little short for me. :lol:
