Google has become such an ingrained part of our lives that virtually all of us have used it at one time or another. When the search giant makes changes to how it returns search results, it’s a big deal.
Most shoppers are governed by the rule of supply and demand. There’s also the rule of majority wants. (If it isn’t obvious enough, that’s something I coined myself.) So basically, my self-made rule states that most people will tend to want something more, if they see that a lot of other people like it.
Social media is everywhere these days. You can’t watch a TV program, enter a store or pass a billboard without being asked to “Like” or “Follow” these entities on Facebook, Twitter or other social networking websites.
Last March, Blizzard released a Diablo 3 skill calculator for excited gamers to tinker and drool over their future characters. But gaming website IncGamers has an even better snack for Diablo fans before the main course arrives.
The Internet has made a lot of things in life easier, like communicating with friends and family overseas, keeping up long-distance relationships, and doing your work while you’re on the go. Now a site is taking things one step further – by letting you get a virtual girlfriend for just $5.
Each website has its own feel, its own audience, and its own style. While MSN is very colorful and vibrant, Wikipedia prefers to focus on basic functionality. These dress designs represent popular websites quite accurately, both in color scheme and the style of dress.
Stores like Gamestop and Best Buy make a ton of money from buying and selling used games, but a new service called Waygoz wants to cut out these middlemen by linking gamers to who want to swap games with each other.
If you’re into iPhonetography (meaning you use your iPhone a lot to take photos), then you’ve probably already heard of Instagram. In case you haven’t, it’s a free app that lets you apply filters and all sorts of cool effects to your shots.
If there’s one thing we can count on Google for ever year, it’s a bunch of hilarious, geeky April Fools pranks, and this might be my favorite of 2012. It’s a new capability for Google Chrome called Multitask Mode.
While we’re reasonably certain that the pranksters at Google have jumped the gun with one of their big April Fools pranks, we’re still the slightest bit hopeful that Google Maps for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a real thing.
Spending the vast majority of my professional life online, I receive an inordinate amount of email messages in my inbox every day. Most days, I get at least 200 to 300 messages, so it’s become very difficult to manage all the stuff flowing through my box and make heads or tails of it all.
This interactive 8-bit-style YouTube game uses the choose-your-own-adventure ethos to prepare you for the next season of Mad Men. It was created by The Fine Brothers with music and animation by pixel artist Doctor Octoroc (Levi Buffum).
Remember how social media accelerated the uprising in Egypt last year? Or how it pushed for action against Libya? It all started with a few Tweets and Facebook statuses that eventually sparked others in the network to speak up and rally against the oppressors.
The new iPad (which some people like to call the iPad 3) was released last Friday. Sure, some people are complaining about how the device gets too hot after continuous use, but that still won’t detract tons of people who will eventually get the device.
Albert Einstein was a scientific bad-ass. I think we can all agree on that. Einstein gave us theories that explain some of the most unexplainable things about our universe. Scientists still live by many of his theories, such as the theory of general relativity despite the fact that Einstein has been dead for nearly 60 years.
