Copyright infringement actions are nothing new, pirates who illegally distribute software and content do get slapped with legal action from time to time with punishments ranging from jail time to fine or both. In this particular case the software pirate is unable to pay so he’s now required to appear in a PSA about his life as a pirate and if that video doesn’t get 200,000 views on YouTube he ends up with a big fine.

Swatting is a “prank” that’s anything but funny. For those unfamiliar, basically it involves one person calling the police pretending to have hostages, killed someone, or is having their house robbed. They provide the address of their victim, and minutes later, an entire SWAT team (hence the term swatting) will arrive guns cocked and ready, only to stumble across an innocent victim.

This isn’t funny because you have a group of armed officers ready to open fire, so imagine making the wrong move only to be shot. We have seen this happen many times in the past which like we said, isn’t funny. While it is considered illegal to make false police calls, states have had to deal with it individually, but now Rep. Katherine Clark is trying to make swatting an illegal issue federally across all 50 states in the US. Read full post →Swatting Could Soon Be Made Illegal In All 50 States

amazon-signAn Amazon Prime subscription will cost you nearly $100 a year, but if you think about it it’s actually a pretty good deal. Not only will you gain access to better shipping options, but you will also gain access to other features offered by the website, like music and video streaming via Prime Instant Video.

However according to a report from Bloomberg, they have heard from sources that Amazon’s Prime subscription program could soon get a lot more attractive.

gplay giftsThe concept of gift cards has been around for the longest time ever, and we have also seen the concept applied to app stores like the iTunes App Store and Google Play. However it seems that according to a report from Android Police, there is now a new way of sending Google Play Gifts in the US.

They discovered this in one of Google’s support pages. According to the support page, there is an option called Google Play credit gifts. Basically this allows users to send credits as a gift to other people via email. Like we said, gift cards have been around for a while now but prior to this, users weren’t able to send gifts via email, so this option is a new one and more convenient too.
