Me and Google

Two unrelated stories:

  • We’ve both recently been the target of hacking attempts originating from China. Of course, the attack they suffered was much more serious and alarming than mine, which appeared to be a bot trying to log into my wireless router (running Tomato) and was mindlessly trying every entry in a password dictionary. I turned off remote access in the admin panel, and that was that.
  • I own a Garmin nuvi 200, and got accustomed to using the Communicator plugin with Google Maps to easily input addresses into it without having to use the touchscreen interface. Tonight, though, I tried to use it and discovered that Google Maps no longer shows the Send link off of which the browser integration hangs. Not sure why it’s no longer there, and an update to the plugin didn’t change anything, so it seems like it’s just broken. Argh.
