Why I read Lifehacker

Lifehacker had at least two interesting stories today:
1) One Click DVD Rips
2) The Windows File Shredder

I guess with those tools, someone could copy a bunch of rented movies, then securely delete them when the feds came knocking on their door.

I'm, uh, not advocating that. Lifehacker's just an interesting site.

I've also been reading a lot of Get Rich Slowly these days, mostly out of curiousity, and a little amazement that they've been able to keep a blog about personal finance interesting all this time. The emphasis on Get Rich Slowly seems to be on sorta "hacking" your personal finance, and personal stories of financial success (or failure).
