HP Photosmart 7520

 

You'd think that by connecting it to a wireless network that it'd now be secured to said network.  Nope.  It still has another wireless interface *anyone* can connect to. (Airprint?)

 

An arp -a displays its IP address and from there you can connect to its admin page.

 

Neighbour has one.

Stereo systems, speakers etc that are rated in PMPO watts or "music power" watts. Both are completely meaningless in that there is no definitive way to calculate RMS power or another value that can be objectively compared. But they get used anyway as they can be big impressive sounding numbers.

 

Yes I am aware that "RMS power" is not a technically correct term. But I (and many others) use it as it is an easy way of saying - power calculated by VoltsRMS*AmpsRMS

People who have emails or usernames with terms like "sexy" or "babe" in them, they creep me out to an annoying degree, especially as its often pudgy guys in their 40s with weaselly facial hair and BO.

It can easily be reprogrammed to do nothing or imitate any other key. For those afraid of the Registry, there are simple utilities for this. A quick Google search will bring up several.
