Foursquare’s Latest Campaign Pushes the Sharing Envelope

While the MTV Campaign, Get Yourself Tested (GYT) is to be commended for encouraging responsible sexual behavior, it begs the question as to why anybody would be willing to share the location of the clinic they are being tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) via FourSquare? Too Much Information(TMI) or oversharing are two phrases that immediately come to mind. However, this has not discouraged Foursquare from creating it’s very first social badge designed exactly for this...

You’re not being paranoid, you are being Ad Stalked

I had a sneaking suspicion that something wasn’t right a few weeks ago. That’s when I first noticed this particular product advertisment that seemed to pop up on every website I visited. It was everywhere, despite the fact that I had not click any links or visited any websites for that product in some time. My suspicions were confirmed when I read an article titled “Time for a web Do Not Track List?” written by PC World detailing this latest internet craze termed ‘re-marketing’...

AMD about to AX the ATI brand???

The Net is buzzing with rumors and speculation that AMD will ditch the ATI name on its graphics cards.  AMD must be under the assumption that the Radeonand FireGL brands will be recognized just as well under AMD.  The rebranding is not expected to take place until the release of the Fusion processor in the first quarter of 2011.  Time will tell if finicky enthusiast will start flocking to Nvidia in protest.  Read More →

The art of prognostication has been tried before using anything from reading tea leaves to rubbing crystal balls and most would argue neither have resulted in much success.

Playstation 3 Hacked After Nearly 4 Years

Supposedly hacked back in January by George Hotz who dumped the nand but has yet to reverse engineer the process for the public, the PS3 finally has a working mod that allows homebrew and most importantly, backup games to run from the HDD. It looks amazingly simple to install the mod and backup games but the limited number of titles currently supported and the $150 price tag make it difficult to justify the purchase just yet. Verified by staff and forum users over at PSX-Scene, this rather expensive...

Install Flash / Frash On iPhone And iPad (Must Jailbreak First)

There’s definitely times when you’re on the go and need to check out a link from your iPhone only to get there and see flash intro’s and banners that aren’t visible.
