    Gadget Club: Round 2

    OK. Let’s try this again. I’ve passed out the first set of prizes to unnamed persons and this is Round 2. TO VOTE COMMENT ON THIS POST WITH THE EXACT NAME OF THE DEVICE YOU’RE VOTING FOR. THAT IS THE ONLY TEXT THAT SHOULD APPEAR. I WILL DO AN SQL QUERY ON THE COMMENTS DB TO FIND THE WINNER. LITERALLY COPY AND PASTE THE NAME OF THE DEVICE INTO THE COMMENT FIELD AND POST IT.

    E-voting system evaluator: "I thought I was going to throw up"

    What a great quote! Ohio’s Secretary of State was interviewed for ComputerWorld and revealed the ridiculous level of error that was present throughout the certification and troubleshooting process. The results of the (deep breath) Evaluation & Validation of Election-Related Equipment, Standards & Testing (EVEREST) analysis were that every single system they looked at had… Read More

  • Google Will Show You Where to Vote

    Google Will Show You Where to Vote

    Google is getting in on the voting season by offering a Google mapplet that will offer a wealth of voter information before the big day in November. The site is not yet complete, but it will provide users with "voting location, registration information, and more." What that more is has yet to be determined since, as the site points out, "all voting location information will be available by… Read More

  • How to spot e-vote tampering?

    How to spot e-vote tampering?

    Our permanent campaign marches on here in the U.S., with preparations for 2012 already well underway. To that end, some dude has asked proto-blog Slashdot what to look for when it comes to electronic vote fraud. (He’s an elections official, so he has some modicum of power to stop any shenanigans.) The suggestions are rich in thought and content. • Look for a paper trail. If… Read More

  • Low Tech: Washington state's caucuses are nuts

    [photopress:CaucusAudience.jpg,full,center] So we were in a room in the basement of a church. There were more people stuffed in there than should have been. There was no place to sit, lean, or kneel. We stood rigid as we got our instructions on how to caucus, and it turns into a popularity contest. The worst part is Newsweek is calling today “Significant Saturday”, to counter… Read More

  • Why I'd trade my vote for an iPod touch

    Why I'd trade my vote for an iPod touch

    About a week ago, Drudge ran a headline something to the effect of: SHOCK: NYU STUDENTS WOULD TRADE THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR IPOD TOUCH. While I wasn’t part of the poll even though I’m in the journalism building pretty much all day (posting to CG, natch), I think it’s safe to say I’d give up my right to vote for an iPod touch. Why, exactly? Because I’d get more out of… Read More

    XM, Sirius shareholders vote on proposed merger today, await "OK" from gov't regulators

    Yes, the painfully original XM-Sirius “logo” strikes again Judging by a number posts from earlier in the year, I can tell that a few of you are fans of, or at least followers of, of satellite radio. It may interest you to know that today is the day when shareholders of both XM and Sirius vote the proposed merger up or down. It’s expected that both groups will give the merger the… Read More
