    Playing Angry Birds on a second generation iPad with a cracked screen, I found the sullen hacker that was my guide in Las Vegas. He looked like a brony with a gluten allergy.  "Come on," I barked, "get up." He looked over the swollen lids of his eyes. He seemed to want to say something but got distracted by the scream of a bird he flicked across the screen. "What’s the WIFI password in this dump?" I asked.  "Guest123" the brony mumbled.  "Seriously? I’m at a hotel hosting a major tech conference with a password like that? I wouldn’t connect to that hornet’s nest with my worst enemy’s Blackberry." I snatched the iPad from his hands. His swollen, greasy fingers didn’t have a chance to challenge me. I opened Safari and was greeted with a hundred tabs of ads for shitty apps. “Jesus.” I thought, “I asked for a hacker and they send this noob.”
