Killing Pinboard and IFTTT Integration
Killing Pinboard and IFTTT Integration

I'm probably done with IFTTT. I've waited for a business model and instead I get crazy service integrations I've never heard of. Now it looks like IFTTT integration with Pinboard will end in the near future and it's ending for bad reasons. Browse through the amusing Twitter feed of @pinboard and you'll see tweets like this:

Tweet Link

I am invited to join their private Developer Platform and feast on the rich analytics therein, which isn’t really my cup of tea

Tweet Link

Final word from IFTTT: do a bunch of unpaid custom API work on your site, or we will break our site for your users. A chilling threat indeed

So I'm moving my Feedbin integration to Zapier. I only integrate my Feedbin favorites and Macdrifter posts into Pinboard. Both of those can be accomplished by Zapier based on RSS feeds. None of it needs to be real-time or even frequent.

Is it better? Probably not. Does it have a business model that's obvious? Yes.

Interesting Lottery Terminal Hack
It was a manipulation of the terminals.

The 5 Card Cash game was suspended in November after Connecticut Lottery and state Department of Consumer Protection officials noticed there were more winning tickets than the game's parameters should have allowed. The game remains suspended.

An investigation determined that some lottery retailers were manipulating lottery machines to print more instant winner tickets and fewer losers....

[...]

An investigator for the Connecticut Lottery determined that terminal operators could slow down their lottery machines by requesting a number of database reports or by entering several requests for lottery game tickets. While those reports were being processed, the operator could enter sales for 5 Card Cash tickets. Before the tickets would print, however, the operator could see on a screen if the tickets were instant winners. If tickets were not winners, the operator could cancel the sale before the tickets printed.
