Greetings my fellow aspiring hackers,
Welcome back, my rookie hackers! "How can I travel and communicate over the Internet without being tracked or spied on by anyone?" It's a question many Null Byteans have asked me, so I have decided to write a comprehensive article addressing this issue.
How To: We Tested Out Magic, the Service That Lets You Order Whatever You Want via Text (& It's Awesome)
With the brand new SMS-based ordering service called Magic, anyone with a mobile phone can order whatever they want—really, anything—by sending causal text messages. Who says magic isn't real?
How To: These Auto-Redial Apps Can Call Busy Phone Lines Over & Over Again for You Until You Get Through
Busy phone lines are nothing new. Just ask any radio station that holds a viral call-in contest. These days, however, the most active lines around aren't so fun — your state's unemployment office is receiving record-shattering numbers of calls, making it extremely challenging for you to get through. However, there are apps out there that can help you break through the noise.
Facebook really wants your phone number, nagging you for one as soon as you join. This isn't all bad since it can help secure your account with two-factor authentication. On the flipside, this makes it easy to reveal the private phone numbers of virtually anyone on Facebook, including celebrities and politicians. We're going to look at how a hacker would do this and how to protect yourself.
This video series demonstrates how to fold the origami model "Ground Beetle" that John Montroll designed. John kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you.
Everybody loves a good fair ground ride and so why not give them something to panic about more than a few bloody pranks?
This tutorial is for Ubuntu 10.04 users who want to tether their iPhone 4 (software version 4.2.1). No jailbreak needed! You have two options - you can tether through USB, or tether through Bluetooth.
WonderHowTo is made up of niche communities called Worlds. If you've yet to join one (or create your own), get a taste below of what's going on in the community. Check in every Wednesday for a roundup of new activities and projects.
Here's another Null Byte on hacking our Skyrim game saves. Some of the rarer items in Skyrim are really fun to play with. However, seeing as they are rare, you will probably not see all of the best weapons in the game. Null Byte doesn't take too kindly to games that don't give us the rarest items when we please. Let's beat this game into submission by hacking our game save files via hex editing.
What else is there to say about Search & Destroy other than it is the greatest punk fanzine to have ever lived?
Welcome to the second Goonight Byte! Our second coding session was kindly hosted by th3m, so props to him for letting this happen.
The only thing better than successfully pulling off a new experiment is doing it with household materials. You get to laugh in conceit as professional scientists everywhere spend all their grant money on the same project you just accomplished with some under-the-sink chemicals! However, there are times when DIY gets dangerous. Some household chemicals are not pure enough to use and some are just pure dangerous. Let's take a look at two problems I have encountered in the course of mad sciencing.
You can make homemade pizza with a minimum of tools, or you can buy the entire yuppie menagerie (and let's face it—if you're a foodie, you probably want the toys). Below is a brief rundown of the different options available. Since I'm a relative beginner to the process, I've also linked out to a few in-depth reviews.
Dangers abound in the world of srteet art, however one danger stands out as increasingly dangerous. Gangs around the country use graffiti to mark their terriotory and do not take kindly to street artists. In several parts of los angelos gang members will stop you in the middle of the street and ask you if you have spray paint if you are wearing a backpack or a messenger bag. If you answer in the affirmitive (or if they take your bag and find spray paint or markers) its very likely they will s...
RESPECT - What It Means (in the picture above are my parents, both of whom I respect and cherish dearly)
There's two senile senior citizens disguised from Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville who claims they have "gotten sick of hospital food", and decided to rob a local supermarket. One guy is wearing his sports shorts, walking with a walking stick, and with parts of his genitals exposing, plobbing everywhere. (Johhny) While the other guy's on a wheel chair, just pitifully rolling to the supermarket with his (fake) detures and the hospital gown(steve-O). As they entered the assumed "Cosco", they then p...
