The 404 885: Where we weeze the juice (podcast)

On today's episode, "woot" makes it into the Oxford English Dictionary, juice-hacking threatens user privacy, and a virtual hit-man service charges $10 an hour for DDoS attacks.

"Woot" joins "jeggings," "mankini," "noob," and 400 other new definitions in the 12th edition of the Concise Oxford English Dictionary published today, but what happened to "glamazon," "hangry," and "retrosexual"?

Along with our suggestions for new slang to be added, we're also warning everyone about a privacy breach called juice-hacking and a virtual hit-man service that charges $10 an hour for DDoS attacks. And we talk about whether it's necessary to reboot or shut down your computer at night.

This, plus a handful of Calls From the Public on today's episode--enjoy!
