Google Calendar, the new Spam Frontier

Apr. 8th, 2008 | 09:07 am

A few searches indicate this isn’t totally new, I’m just getting it for the first time. But I’ve just received an invite to “ATM PAYMENT UPDATE”. And the description was one of the standard spam texts: “This is to officially inform you that we have verified your
contract/inheritance file and found out that why you have not received
your payment..” etc.

The efficacy of spam overall still boggles me. I don’t doubt it works, or it would have stopped by now. I would think someone using an online calendar would be a tiny bit more savvy. I’m probably wrong. :)

iTunes still sucks

Thank you, Apple, for completely breaking iTunes with your last two updates. At least the 2nd time I didn’t have to spend hours trying to figure out how to fix it.

And I don’t know when you introduced the “Diagnostics” option off the “Help” menu, but it crashes when I run it. Which is par for the course, but at least it gave me a chuckle.
