Alarm clocks in mobile phones

I would have chosen death instead

Except that I haven’t smashed the phone… yet.

Social Engineering at Work

Filed under: ¿Pero qué coño?, Fun, Life — Tags: , — jesus @ 19:39

I’ve never had social engineering done at me, but recently there was this guy who phone me by directly calling MX Telecom‘s number. He said he was calling from DHL and that he had a package to be delivered for me. He wanted the name of two other people who would sign the delivery report in case I was not there. I complied and later a colleague told me that this is most likely a recruiter collecting names from the companies. Aha!

So, I had another call yesterday and this time I was quicker to react. The conversation went like this:

Hi, Could I speak to Jesús?

On the phone.

Hi, I’m a promoter who is organising an event at the O2 Arena for Playboy Magazine.

Playboy?

Yeah, the adult magazine, have you ever heard of it?

Barely, go on.

Well, they are organising this event for IT professionals and they wanted as many IT professionals to attend this event. I’ve got 6 tickets so if you could give me 5 names I’ll send them to you guys.

Sure, jot down please:

Juan Perez and Joseph Garcia, they are americans and have just arrived to the company.

Oh, sure. Is there any lady there who would like to attend?

To a playboy event? Yeah, I know of one: Ana Botieso, a nice Spanish girl.

is that all?

Yup, thanks a lot, I’m really looking forward to having those tickets.

No problems bye.

bye.

All of this while my mates at work were looking at me and giggling. Obviously the two first names were made up. The girl’s name stands for “An Erect Penis” in Spanish if you put it all together.

So you know, guys, if you ever receive such a suspicious call, you can be playful and have a bit of fun. You never know if you are going to get a call from one of these dicks.

In a perfect world… spammers would get caught, go to jail, and share a cell with many men who have enlarged their penisses, taken Viagra and are looking for a new relationship.

Wouldn’t it be nice? Yessss

Google Calendar

Filed under: Fun, Internet — Tags: — jesus @ 18:50

So, Google is preparing another web application for all of us to enjoy. A web calendar to keep track of all the things you could put on your calendar, like iCal or simmilar. It looks like it’s going to be possible to sync them from your favourite calendar desktop application.

There are some good screenshots of this Google Calendar here. The cuestion is, if google is owning your email, being the internet search master, and deploying a bunch of other interesting services (Google Talk and Google maps among others)… Isn’t having all this information about you too much? I mean, someday we might end up eating some google snack which would put some RFID or GPS controlled chip inside our body and then, gradually, all of us would be under google control ;-)

Sounds scary, but I am looking forward to testing this new application, hehehe
