commented on Smart Meter Companies Sue Local Activist and City to Block Disclosure of Security Audits
@1 As with a lot of internet connected hardware, security flaws could allow all sorts of issues.
If the security sucks it's reasonable that someone could turn your house's power off from the other side of the globe, or watch which houses are not using a power because no one is home) and then burgle them, or change how much power the meter reports, causing you to get a bill for thousands of dollars with no recourse.

Well, Tim Keck started the Onion, so it's kind of baked in.

I work near the ducks' route and I will say that the number of them has increased dramatically. It's usual for me not to see one when I walk outside, and some times they pass by in a flock of 2-3 at once.
I would assume it's just summer tourist season, and that come October we can all go back to our rainy solitude again.

Great. I hope the democratic caucus comes out in support as well as the governor. Everyone can cheer how bipartisan they were, getting on board with a republican bill.
