Barbie and Ken Getting Back Together? Will it be Facebook Official???

So, the long and drawn out relationship saga between the two Mattel toys Barbie and Ken is taking a new turn. First off, I didn’t even know that they were broken up, I guess I have been lacking on reading the tabloids to stay informed. Back on track, they apparently broke the relationship off in [...]

Egypt’s Internet Blackout

Unless you live in a hole or you can see Russia from your front porch you have probably heard about the crisis occurring in Egypt. While the events in the country are going out of control, one of the things that I thought was particularly amazing has been the internet blackout. Internet traffic dropped over [...]

Al-Jazeera Wants to Move Network to the US

I would hope that everyone has the global awareness concerning the recent upheavals in Egypt.

Is the Kindle the Future?

I recently read that Kindle books outsold all others on amazon.com. Previously Kindle’s sales only outsold hardcovers, but now they have taken over paperbacks as well.

Woman Who Was Fired Over Facebook Status Begins Trial

Almost two months ago, medical transportation company employee Dawnemarie Souza was fired for posting an “offensive” status on Facebook. In fairness, the post was a vulgar rant about a disagreement at work with her current boss. Souza was fired from the company for violating an “online badmouthing” provision.

Verizon Challenges the FCC: What It Means to You

This past Thursday, Verizon issued a legal challenge towards interned restrictions on broadband providers set forth by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). The gist of the challenge is that the FCC currently mandates that broadband providers stay “neutral” in controlling access on their broadband networks. Verizon wants to lessen this rule, and has fair reason [...]
