Let’s talk XBOne and PS4 – no one got it right

Posted June 11, 2013 @ 3:33 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Last night I was elated after hearing Sony announce not just the price of the new Playstation 4 (a paltry $399) but their steadfast commitment to consumers – the PS4 was going to support used games! As I’m likely to do after most great evenings, this morning I awoke a little bleary-eyed, tired, dehydrated, and […]

Posterous is dead, save your account!

Posted March 18, 2013 @ 1:14 pm CST by Kevin Jones

About a year ago, you may recall hearing that Twitter had acquired Posterous Spaces. Twitter has been on a tear buying up platforms like Posterous and Tweetdeck for quite some time now, to get rid of competition, to quell the growth of features they deem “not official”, to add features they need to stay competitive (Vine, […]

Big Brother’s Watching: FBI warns Police to monitor THEIR social activity

Posted February 7, 2013 @ 2:32 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Here’s a big “duh!” moment for local police – Watch what you do online! It’s no secret that law enforcement officials have turned to social media to “investigate” crimes. As long as criminals are stupid enough to plan their crimes on Facebook, Twitter, or wherever it is that they share such intimacies, police will continue […]

Porn in Russia’s iTunes Store

Posted December 5, 2012 @ 2:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

But by no means was this intentional, the report from NBC News indicates that the gaffe was a result of an unobservant web designer using an ‘xx.xx.xx’ placeholder for the Foreign Language Movies section in the iTunes Store. The timing of the flub may be worse than the actual error – on the iTunes Store’s […]

Instagram blocks Twitter; is this “a better Instagram for everyone?”

Posted December 5, 2012 @ 11:21 am CST by Alberto Lima

Back when Instagram announced that its sale to Facebook was a done deal, they made a rather lofty promise that their acquisition meant “a better Instagram for everyone.” Today, many Twitter users have noticed that Instagram previews on their time lines appear either cropped or off-center; an annoyance sure, but why?

California passes privacy law protecting your drunk tweets/Facebook updates

Posted September 28, 2012 @ 3:29 pm CST by Alberto Lima

A while back we warned you about those drunk tweets and questionable Facebook status updates you’ve been posting; not because we’re easily offended or anything, but just in case you were looking for a job (or were a university applicant) and those assholes they required you to give up your social media passwords as part of […]

Roundup: Week of Wonder

Posted August 17, 2012 @ 12:41 pm CST by Chris Ness

It’s been an odd week. Team Fortress Mann vs Machine was released, and it’s quite fun if you can find a match.   The Engineering Team behind Curiosity did an AMA. While simultaneously being smart, witty and awesome, these engineers went fairly in-depth about the Mars rover Curiosity, including what programming language they use, and […]

Twitter is our new opinion poll

Posted August 13, 2012 @ 3:30 am CST by Alberto Lima

Suffice to say that the world at large is paying a lot more attention to Twitter these days. From keeping up with famous people to breaking news, Twitter has become the defacto source for quick news-ish updates. This being an election year in the US means that we must find a way to turn our […]
