Biggest Threat To Apple iTunes Is 'Google Music' Hitting A High Note

'Gourmet Live' To Serve Up Location-Based Social Networking With A Side Of Gaming?

Condé Nast's Gourmet Magazine closed shop almost a year ago. Like other legacy newspapers and magazines, print content is slowly becoming a dinosaur right before our very eyes.

Betting On The MTV Twitter Jockey Who Will Make It To The Finish Line (POLL)

Will it be Tomicha Cassel from Cleveland, Ohio or Rolfe Norman from Athens, Georgia? Who will be the social media voice for MTV?

BP Blaster App Allows You To Be Master Of Your Domain

Remember the Seinfeld episode "The Contest" aka "Master of Your Domain," when Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer were tasked with controlling sudden urges?

HP's 48Upper Social Network Is The Geek Squad's Latest Watering Hole

Social Networking After Death Becomes You

Taking control of our lives online after death is a rather macabre thought - but similar to last wills and testaments when you commit in writing as to how you want to put your affairs in order in the event of death, you might want to do the same with your social networking presence.

Europe Beats U.S. In Race For Social Networking The 'Internet Of Things'

In the U.S., we are more concerned about disconnecting the Internet than expanding its connectivity to inanimate objects. If Senator Lieberman has his way, the government will have access to a 'kill switch' that will virtually shut down the Internet at will. Europe on the other hand is taking a much more progressive approach.

Will The Internet's 'Kill Switch' Kill Social Networks?

It's hard enough dealing with Twitter's Fail Whale on a daily basis, and the number of phishing attacks occurred on Facebook - now, we might have to contend with the possibility of both networks being turned off with one flip of a switch? When did Big Brother relocate to the States?

Icelandic Law Seeking To Become Epicenter For Journalists' Safe Haven

WikiLeaks' Julian Assange and his flight from the authorities pertaining to his whistleblowing expose on the US military's classified documents gives one pause for concern about the safety of journalists and whistleblowers globally.

Droid Squeaks To Market 24 Hours Earlier Than iPhone 4

Seven months ago, the original Droid reported selling over 100,000 devices during its launch weekend. However, since that was considerably less than the 1.6 million iPhone 3GS phones sold by Apple during its June, 2009 debut - this go-around Google is initiating a preemptive marketing strike to hopefully beat Apple at its own game.

Guggenheim Uses YouTube's Social Media Channel As Casting Call For Video Artists

Who would have thought that one's talent at producing YouTube videos could be considered art that's worthy enough of going on exhibition at the Guggenheim? Starting today, anyone with access to a Web cam, video camera or iPhone can submit YouTube video presentations into a video-art exhibition contest conducted by the Guggenheim foundation of museums in partnership with YouTube.

Onion 'Future News' Replacing Social Media News For A Fee - No Joke!

The slogan for a new news format is: "A lot of networks report the news as it happens, but only one has the power to report the news before it happens." The tag line is: "To stay ahead in today's world, you have to know what's going to happen in tomorrow's." Catchy catch-phrases - but is it enough to warrant a price tag?

World Cup's Vuvuzela Is The Sound Heard Round The World

Vuvuzela (pronouced voo-voo-ZAY-lah) is the horn of plenty. Its name in Zulu roughly translates to "making a lot of noise" — and it sure does. This year's World Cup in South Africa is distinguished by a sound not found in too many other destinations. At best, it's been compared to the sound of a herd of elephants - at worst perhaps, "the traffic jam from hell."

Google BrinBots To Transcend Limitations Of Man's Mortality?

A scientific think-tank in the Silicon Valley, funded by Google, run by thought-leaders in the fields of artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics and computing - may be man's answer to Ponce de León 's Fountain of Youth.

QR Codes Augmenting Our Lives From Tokyo To Manhattan

While Quick Response (QR) codes received some controversy last month when Facebook was rumored using them to generate bar codes on users' profiles, the technology does have merit and continues to enhance the use of augmented reality in our every day lives. Last fall, I even speculated that "tag technology" could potentially replace Google Search at some point in time.
