Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Let's face it the day is probably approaching where we will have near zero control over our computers.
The problem may become winnable if websites cease using infected ad hosts for revenue at the cost of their users sanity and security, let's face in todays internet most infection probably stems from infected advertising.
I see it less of a hobby, I see it as lazy asses that can't be fucked to get off the couch and walk 5 feet to a light switch. Seriously aside from turning lights on/off randomly while on vacation which your neighbors still know no ones home, does it take more time to break out your phone or tablet connect to the website and turn your lights on/off vs getting up and walking to the switch?
I say the hobby is not the reason due to a majority of users probably have it a) to be the first to have it because it's cool or b) to show it off to company. Which if it's b you just blew the security again as word will spread "Fred has an automated house and can work every light in his house from anywhere in the world".
