Privly Wants to Protect Your Content, Anywhere on the Web

Privly Wants to Protect Your Content, Anywhere on the Web
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.

Olly and Molly: Smell and Taste Your Tweets

Olly and Molly: Smell and Taste Your Tweets
People are always trying to figure out ways to make the internet more tangible, and one of the more common ways to do this is to build devices that interact with Twitter or Facebook in some way.

Tweeting Sensor: Posts Temperature, Humidity and Radiation, Eventually

Tweeting Sensor: Posts Temperature, Humidity and Radiation, Eventually
People use Twitter for various reasons. Some users tweet senseless stuff everyday (like “I just farted” or “My cat is sleeping.”) Some re-tweet quotes that they find meaningful, while some just post jokes, rants, and anything that they feel like posting about.

Q-Sensor Bracelet Determines Your Mood and Tweets About It

Q-Sensor Bracelet Determines Your Mood and Tweets About It
Everything’s all about your mood and social networking these days. Remember the heat-sensitive iPhone backing that turns your smartphone into a sort-of giant mood ring phone? Or that creepy Jell-O ad campaign with the giant face billboard that smiled or frowned based on the moods of people in Twitterverse?

Tweet Speaker App Reads Your Tweets

Tweet Speaker App Reads Your Tweets
Reading too many tweets can be hard on your eyes, and besides, when you are reading them, you can’t really do anything else at the same time. It’s much better to have tweets read to you.

Robonaut 2 Tweets from Space

Robonaut 2 Tweets from Space
Well, it took a few months, but now it looks like NASA’s Robonaut 2 is finally tweeting from space. We knew that it had arrived on the ISS a few months ago, and now it looks like he’ll keep his Earth-based followers updated on what’s happening aboard the ISS – via twitter.

Restaurant Kicks Lady Out for Tweeting that Bartender was a Twerp

Restaurant Kicks Lady Out for Tweeting that Bartender was a Twerp
I have been in a restaurant before when someone was generally making an ass of themselves complaining about everything. I have also been in a restaurant before when I have leaned over to my wife and noted that the waiter was a tool.

Get Free Pudding When Jell-O’s (Creepy) Pudding Face Billboard Is Frowning

Get Free Pudding When Jell-O’s (Creepy) Pudding Face Billboard Is Frowning
Fancy a free serving or two of Jell-O? Feeling down in the dumps and firing away tweets laced with “:(” at the beginning, middle, or end? If you answered “yes” to both, then you might just receive a tweet from @JelloMoodMeter with a link to claim your free pudding.

White House Rickrolls Correspondent Who Complained Briefing Was Boring

White House Rickrolls Correspondent Who Complained Briefing Was Boring
I always think of the people that work at the White House as a bunch of bah humbug sorts that have no fun. I might have to change my notions of these political folks though. A White House Correspondent named David Wiggs was sitting though another correspondent brief when he tweeted what he thought.

TweetingSeat: Sit on It! (and Tweet)

TweetingSeat: Sit on It! (and Tweet)
I’ve heard of tweeting objects before, like a tweeting cat door and the tweeting scale, but this is the first time that I’ve seen a tweeting bench. The TweetingSeat was created by designer Christopher McNicholl. The bench creates logs of its usage (must be very pertinent information), takes photos of people who sit on it, and tweets about it over at its dedicated Twitter feed @TweetingSeat.

TinyVox iPhone App Helps You Break Out of the E-mail and Text Message Rut

TinyVox iPhone App Helps You Break Out of the E-mail and Text Message Rut
I get dozens of iPhone app announcements every day, but this one actually made me prick up my ears and listen. That’s because instead of sending text messages, Tinyvox sends voice messages. The cool thing about the little app is that it makes it stupid simple to record personalized voice messages and send them to your friends or post them to social networking sites.

Twitterrific Mascot: Yours For Less Than $140

Twitterrific Mascot: Yours For Less Than $140
…in fact, you can have Ollie for way less than $1 a character.  Just to be clear, Ollie’s the mascot of Twitter client Twitterrific, not Twitter itself. But in a way he’s actually better, because Twitter’s mascot is just a silhouette of a bird.

Google Works Around Egyptian Government with speak2tweet

Google Works Around Egyptian Government with speak2tweet
The Egyptian government still has the country under a web blackout and they can’t access services we have all come to rely on like twitter and Facebook among others. If you want to know what’s going on in Egypt from the mouths of the folks who are there you can use a new service that Google cobbled together over the weekend.

Twitter-Controlled Car: Turns Out You Can Drive in 140 Characters or Less

Twitter-Controlled Car: Turns Out You Can Drive in 140 Characters or Less
Mercedes Benz engineers are developing a system to control cars via Twitter, and they seem to have nailed it. I must admit when I first saw this video I immediately thought it was fake. First of all, the prototype car was an undoubtedly expensive Mercedes Benz CL 550; you’d think they’d use a more disposable car for their tests.

Viewdle Facial Recognition Phone App Tags Faces, Spits on Privacy in Real Time
A start-up company called Viewdle showed off some interesting smartphone software at CES. Their app can recognize faces in real time and automatically tag them, using either data from social networks or a user-created database from videos and photos on the phone itself.
