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!

Must-know facts of HDTV, Gun laws in the US? Shrek vs Fat people? Sheep=Poodle in Japan? LOL

Greetings! TGIF (oh come on you should know this by know!) again!

I’ve read so much about HDTV and how awesome it is etc. so I came across this article and seeing as I’m considering getting one it serves as uber handy! Chekkit!

So since the VT shootings (here’s a link back to my views) where do gun laws stand? This article delves into the line where we should or shouldn’t provide certain individuals with firearms especially regards the mentally unhealthy. A good read.

For a fun read people are pissed off that Shrek is the voice for the fight against child obesity.

On a bizarre tip, Japanese people were duped into buying  which were actually sheep LOL pwned!

Today’s pics are given to you by….The Police and Captain America!

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
