Hacker Group Claims to Have Romney's Tax Returns
This is the thought I've had more and more lately: the reason most of us are safe and secure isn't because we're ready to defend ourselves. It's because most people are not out to get us. I mean this in both a self-defense/mugging sense as well as (like in this article) a "no one has burglarized my house" sense. Most houses are incredibly insecure and only haven't been burglarized because no one has tried to.

It's important to protect your important things (and everything is important) in a way that will actually keep them secure and not just in a "Everyone else does it this way, so I can't be blamed if something goes wrong" way.

Lifehacker - Motion Detection Is an Effective, Dead Simple Security Camera App - Featured Windows Download
Windows only: Motion Detection is a free application that turns your webcam into a motion-sensing security camera in just a few clicks.

Assuming you've got a webcam hooked up to your computer, all you've got to do is run Motion Detector, set your preferences (Motion Detector can capture still images and/or movies complete with timestamps whenever it detects motion), and hit Start to run your new security webcam. Motion Detector's sensitivity slider lets you determine just how much motion the app needs to detect before it starts capturing images. As you can see in the screenshot, triggering motion is indicated by the red squares.
