IM Sounds

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Because I hate talking on the phone, most of my communication with my friends tends to go on over IM. One thing that I’ve noticed, though, is that most IM default sounds are barely audible. And, since I’m not usually sitting at my computer, I can’t hear the default sounds. So I’ve changed all of my sounds to louder, more easily audible sounds, and here’s how

It looks like YouTube has started rolling out their new homepage features. These experimental changes add more real-time functionality, such as the ability to delete videos simply by putting your mouse pointer over it and clicking the “x”, and placing recent likes and favorites right on your homepage, so you can find them easily later on.

There’s more, too, but it’s much better if I just… Continue reading

Spokeo: Privacy and Frustration

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

I recently discovered Spokeo, an online reference that contains more personal information than most people would probably like to see gathered in one place. Spokeo describes themselves as, “Not your grandma’s phone book”. I’ll say. The information available for free includes address, phone number, street view of your home (if available), estimated income (we found this estimation to be way off), estimated value of your home (again, not very… Continue reading

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

So, I blocked the newsfeeds of a friend on Facebook a long time ago. It was so long ago, in fact, that I can’t remember why I did it, exactly. The point is, that it’s time for forgiveness. It’s the holidays, after all!

Blogging with Tumblr

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

In this modern era, news media is divided into online news content from Web 2.0 sites and newspaper content that is the traditional news most people prefer to read. However, no matter what ventures newspapers make to establish an online business, they will always be distinct and a step behind blogs.

A newspaper has… Continue reading

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

According to Webroot, who offer the Social Media Sobriety Test to Firefox users, “Nothing good happens online after 1 am”.

Selective Facebook Posting

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Facebook is a wonderful tool to connect with family and friends, problem is that some of the time we’d like the things we post to only be viewable by certain people.
