Crack a Combination Bike Lock in Under 30 Seconds

Crack a Combination Bike Lock in Under 30 Seconds
I had one of these locks in college but there really wasn't any issue with bike thefts so I wasn't too worried. Plus it was a cheap Wal-Mart bike so it wouldn't have been a great loss. Now though I go with a good u-lock and usually when I do end up locking it up it's rarely out of my sight long, as I'm either stopping at a store for something quick to eat/drink or stopping at a restaurant with outdoor seating. The major worry is really the quick-disconnect seat. There's actually times where if I'm going to be in somewhere long, like the library, I'll take the seat in with me. I actually expected to get more looks than I do.

Crack a Master Combination Padlock Redux As a locksmith, I have a responsibility to the public to educate folks on things like this. Sorry, friend, but your initial statement is false, unless you're referring to locks which are not considered padlocks. Even then, certain door-mounted cylinders are susceptible to a variation on this attack. While the introduction of ball-bearings in the locking dog has significantly reduced the percentage of locks with which this attack is effective, it still works on a very large number of cheap padlocks without this particular addition.

The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject.

Adobe Muse Lets You Design Websites Without Knowing Code Adobe makes programs like InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, which enable nearly every graphic designer on the planet to create nearly every piece of visual content you've ever laid your eyes on. Naturally, their bread and butter is making graphic designers happy. So their newest product, Muse, hopes to make life even easier for designers--specifically ones working in more traditional mediums who are being tapped to take on more web-based projects--as an ultra-simplified, graphically focused tool for making websites. Muse's biggest selling point is that designers don't have to learn code (or "markup languages") like HTML, CSS, or Javascript to break through the barrier of designing for the Internet. As Muse's engineering director, Joe Shankar, says in the introductory video, "We're going to change the way websites are built for graphic designers." For some design firms, learning code isn't a bonus, it's a requirement.

Kiss Your Keyboard and Mouse Goodbye With The Leap Since Steven Spielberg expertly crafted it a decade ago, the world has been clamoring for a user interface similar to what was found in sci-fi thriller Minority Report. Even the inkling of flipping through applications and swiping screens in mid-air made geeks tingle all over, but aside from expertly developed hacks on the Xbox Kinect, nothing definitive seemed to break through and truly give the public that enticing functionality of the future. That is, until now. After more than five years of development, a proprietary technology has emerged that synthesizes the shape and movement of the human hand to produce movement onto a computer. It's called The Leap — and for an astonishingly low price of $70, you can begin to control a computer with nothing more than your hands, as early as next February.
