The blogosphere is abuzz about Zuckerberg's 'Open Compute Project' - his latest innovation of opening  his data center's hardware to the industry at large.

Sucking Less Socially Will Pay More At Google

A lot has been written about Google's lack-luster attempts at social media. From Google Buzz reduced to a whisper to Wave waving good-bye, it's been a hard fought uphill battle trying to compete with the LIKES (pun intended) of Facebook - only to come up empty each time.

Mark Zuckerberg Mad After Justin Bieber To Boost User Numbers

Has the CEO of the number-one social network in the land got Bieber-Fever? Does Facebook want to increase their user base by riding the coat-tails of the pop-star du jour? Highly unlikely.

Send Pigs A Tumbling Down In The Pig Shot iPod Video Game

What do you get if you put a slingshot and a pig together? Pig Shot, that's what. It's an entertaining game for the iPhone and iPod Touch that doesn't require a whole of thinking but a whole lot of pig shooting. All that tumbling makes for one unfortunate and constantly dizzy pig.

Not Again, RIM: The BlackBerry Orlando Leak

I don't know what's up with all these BlackBerry leaks lately but here's another one for you that's just in: the BlackBerry Orlando. Unlike the previous leaks, there aren't too many detailed photos or specifications but a leak is a leak until the phone's been announced by Research In Motion (RIM) and as of this moment, they still haven't done so yet.

GameSalad: Game Creation For Everyone

I love the idea that GameSalad is putting forward.

Will Facebook See The Light Of Day In The Shadow OF China's Firewall?

This month tweets and rumors have been mounting leading to the probability that Mark Zuckerberg might have struck a deal with the Chinese.

USC's ICT Turns Gmail's April Fools' Day Prank A Reality

Google revealed that Gmail Motion was all just a prank once you tried to enable the feature and access it. However, the folks over at the Institute of Creative Technologies (ICT) at the University of Southern California (USC) think differently. It doesn't have to be just a joke because it was possible, and they have an actual system that works.

What's In A Name? Real Names vs NickNames On Social Networks

Remember when the Internet first emerged in the late 90s and "email" was the new shiny thing? So new and so shiny that while we gravitated toward it's light, likes moths to a flame, we were leery of revealing our true identities. So what did we do? We invented nicknames to protect our anonymity. And while we soon realized that real names were not a threat, many of us followed suit when social networks surfaced a few years later.

So here we have the Porn Detection Stick. The name more or less tells you what the software contained on this USB drive can do.
