08/26/2011, Scammers aren’t very nice people, in case you didn’t already know. They’re constantly taking advantage of the uninformed, seizing every opportunity to con a poor soul into revealing their personal details. One of their most common tactics are to take advantage of major events that draw people to their computers, like in this case – Hurricane Irene that’s scheduled to strike tomorrow. Fortunately there’s a solution to the problem of […]

08/17/2011, In today’s day and age of modern technology, it is important that we all watch what we say – especially if we do it in on a public outlet like Twitter. Just last week we had the case of the rapper, Game, jamming up the Compton police station hotline because he (or the alleged hacker) decided to post the number online and invited people to call up for a job. […]
08/15/2011, A rapper named Game (formerly known as The Game), could be in trouble over a Tweet that he sent out last Friday – which caused the Compton police station’s hotline to jam up.

But the phone number he provided wasn’t to his office or agent – […]
08/11/2011, Tired of Twitter? Do you feel like starting over in a brand new, unpopulated micro-blogging social network? Well, you now can.

08/08/2011, While wearable gadgets tend to be over the top and sometimes garish, this “printing dress” by Microsoft is rather chic and pretty classy and if we did not know any better, we would have probably figured this to be just a regular dress.
08/04/2011, If you use Twitter on an iPad and you’re somehow not a fan of the native iOS app on the phone, Twitter has some good news for you.
