Acquisitions galore~ top 60 Aussie web 2.0 apps, No youtube zones

Thursday has arrived~ hail the oh so close end to the week!

Tech Love

The recent trend that has not just caught my attention but the wider audience (you guys) is the acquisition bug. Here’s an article that entails the recent and major acquisitions. Just quickly for those that love to skim read instead of clicking a link… eBay acquires Stumbleupon $75m, Google acquires Panoramio, CBS acquires Last.FM $280m and Fox acquires Photobucket and Flektor. (links all in the URL)

Australia…far away from everyone and everywhere…but still in the groove, or should I say ‘down with the 411’ LOL Here’s the top 60 web apps 2.0 in Australia. I was rather impressed and surprised at the list~

This issue has come up before, Youtube being banned in countries…here’s a list of countries + map that have banned Youtube…Victoria?? WTF?!

I covered Entropia in a previous post (link), but here’s some sweet news, Entropia’s coming to China! It says in the article also that Second Life was in the running but got pwned…lol I like the sound of Entropia better anyways…

Lifestyle Lessons

Now Guy Kawasaki’s blog –  is a blog I admire and always love to check out, here’s a great excerpt from his blog about the 9 biggest myths of the workplace. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

Being bullied? Know how to handle the bully by being in the know with the 411 (LOL sorry sorry sorry) I personally would take up kickboxing so you can pwn them like todays clip!

Pandadan

I Truly TGIF!!!

Let’s get the ball rolling shall we?

Tech Love

I must admit I was rather impressed and a little excited by this entry! Second Life has always been in the lime light due its model, high profile companies and exuberant figures. But Entropia definitely sounds cool, similar to SLit adds first person shooters, missions (if SL had missions it would be awesome), a story line which means a better reason to be…I personally believe this is a nice entry to the market. Check the clip provided on the link. Bad narration and English but still awesome.

Now here’s a nice little addition to the following for the OLPC, the OLPC video channel which broadcasts all things OLPC and the progress being made. Nice.

So which countries have internet censorship? Here’s an interesting read from Yahoo! on countries that block websites.

Lifestyle

So are you sitting at home, there’s a black out and you wish your bloody torch was more powerful? Never fear DIY is here! A short video that shows you how to mod your pissy torch into an annoyingly bright one! Hurray!

Enjoy!

Paris vs Arnie online, I’m telling on u…online, Fake SL numbers? Youtube vs Thailand round 4!

Midweek madness approaches….

Let’s hope we survive the onslaught! This is madness! No…this is SPARTA!!! Sorry, a 300 moment….man i enjoyed that movie as opposed to emo spidey 3….

OK! so let’s get today rollin!

Tech Love

So the words on everyone’s lips is about Paris getting owned and now she wants Arnie’s help…I think this quote summarises my view:

‘The Hilton hotel heiress “provides hope for young people all over the US and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives’

I think not she basicaly has no beauty as a person and is hardly exciting as a freakin’ sea cucumber. I hope she gets noobd in Prison by someone equivalent in strength as Domo kun. Man that would be awesome.

I can already feel today is gonna be a gooood blog….ahhh

So you love being a wuss and hiding behind a keyboard? Well here’s the article you’ve been dreaming of! Basically this article goes through sites where people rat on people…over the net and whinge….wa wa wa kinda like what I am subconsciously doing now. There are 3 websites on there for whingers to unite so get whinging 2.0 style!

Now I had previously covered the Youtube vs Thailand gig (read this link to get in the know) but who would’ve thought it would get to round 4?!!! Here’s the article for round 4…youtube might be headed to court!! (surprise surprise…) This sounds like a royal pain in the arse to me…just let the people speak in Thailand I mean now that you’ve shut em down they’re gonna come back stronger.

Finally, an indepth look into the hyped up SL numbers.  Worth a read plus I found an awesome Second Life parody website…get a First life.com…awesome!

The last topic is basically a tech love and lifestyle tip in one so enjoy!

Today’s pics are dedicated to cool shirts….iPod and LMAO (laughing my ass off u noob!)

Give me a T for Tuesday!

It’s not Monday, which is the main thing and I have training later tonight~

Following on yesterday’s post on MySpace in China, an interesting read came to my attention concerning the Chinese government’s policy/ monitoring of MySpace in China. Basically, the User interface/ look is the same as the US version yet, content is controlled, which contradicts the element of giving a voice to people…read on!

Here’s a popular post that gives out 10 UBER uses for the iPod that are rather unexpected…lol chekkit!

Interested in Web2.0? Here’s some figures on the growth of web2.0 traffic in the US. A growth of 688% to web2.0 sites over the past 2 years~ growl~

What the hell are Sony and Kratos (main character from God of War) doing??!!!! God of War 2 was launched and for their party they slaughter a freakin goat??!! of course the vegetarians, vegans, animal activists and emos are going to get uber pissed! I want to go to that party…..  😦

Youtube hurting teachers, $100 laptop in Nigeria, Ladies wanna warn friends of who to stay away from? Here’s how LOL

GO TO MY NEW SITE!!!!!!!!!!! THIS SITE IS ABANDONED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Today we’re being a little more serious with our issues.

Theres a trend these days with kiddies going a little too far in respect of them hating their teachers or just their lack of respect for their teachers. Sure there’s always that one teacher we always hated, but do you want to ruin their reputation? These kids say yes, here’s an example…totally lame and stupid even if it is a “joke”.

What’s your view?

This is humour. (Disclaimer: Swear words are frequent!)

All-age friendly humour. (awesome!)
The $100 laptop or OLPC is getting started and brought their laptops to a small school in Nigeria.

This is totally sweet and not only are the kids and adults both learning, it’s a kick ass laptop!

I hope this continues and I’ll definitely be supporting them! Here’s their main site.

Now for the random find and rant for today…

Here’s a site for the ladies, and for men to be aware of! A judge threw the case out by a dude who wanted to sue the site…Scary stuff if you’re a bad little boy. Instead of getting coals for christmas you get……pwnership by the female population!

So that’s the wrap for today!

Speaking of getting pwned or owned here’s 2 pics dedicated to pwnership

owned
