LogmeOnce launches on Kickstarter!

LogmeOnce launches on Kickstarter!

Tweet LogmeOnce is an all-new encrypted USB and password manager. They just launched on Kickstarter, and you have to check it out. You never have to remember your passwords ever again. You can create very strong passwords (which are very hard for people to remember) and LogmeOnce stores them for you.

Less than 40% of web traffic comes from humans

Less than 40% of web traffic comes from humans

Tweet Do you use Google Analytics? Maybe some other form of tracking traffic to your website? I have some bad news: most of it is nonsense. Statista created the above chart based on data from the cloud application platform Incapsula. Yep, you read that right: Humans make up 38.5% of all web traffic. The other 61.5% is generated by bots. About half of which are estimated as good bots, such as search engines like Google checking your site for information. The other half is bad bots like ads, hackers and spam. I think we all knew that there are plenty […]

Tweet If you’re a lover of sharing videos of yourself on social media, you’ve surely heard about Vine by now. In fact, you may or may not already be addicted to it.

Facebook increases lobbying budget…hooray?

Facebook increases lobbying budget…hooray?

Tweet As we see more online legislation being presented to Congress such as CISPA, PIPA and PIPA, internet giants are going to want more of a say on these matters. And how do you influence policy? With money of course! And Facebook now clearly wants to be heard in Washington, D.C., as they have increased their lobbying budget some 75% over the fourth quarter of 2012. Based on their lobby disclosure form, Facebook shelled out $2.45 million to lobbying costs in the first quarter of 2013. Yikes. That’s on par with what companies like Microsoft and Google spend. We know […]

Copyright Alert System…careful what you upload

Tweet If you haven’t heard about the Copyright Alert System, you might want to check it out. Then again, if you don’t use peer-to-peer sharing sites like BitTorrent, then don’t worry about it. But if you do, you should know that today, the Copyright Alert System kicks in and you should know what triggers an alert.

Facebook app adds free calling

Facebook app adds free calling

Tweet Yes, it’s time for new Facebook features. Many of you have probably already heard about their new Graph Search, which is slowly rolling out in beta and probably won’t affect you any time soon anyway. But, the Facebook Messenger app has a new feature that we may have cared about at one time, but probably don’t know. If you have an iPhone and the Facebook Messenger app, and you have a friend who has the same, you can call them for free. Just tap the little “i” button in the upper right-hand corner and you can instantly call this […]

Facebook to unveil a “want” button

Facebook to unveil a “want” button

Tweet One would have to think that this is Facebook’s answer to Pinterest. Pretty soon, Facebook will be rolling a new feature they call Collections. With this feature comes a “want” button for brands. “People will be able to engage with these collections and share things they are interested in with their friends,” Facebook said in a statement. “People can click through and buy these items off of Facebook.” It seems like it’s rolling out slowly and with little fanfare, so Facebook may be being careful with it. It’s possible, though, that it could change the way we purchase items […]

Anthony Gallo’s Classico speakers reviewed on About.com

Tweet This is great. We recently sent About.com a brand-new Classico 5.1 system to review. He loved it! Some highlights: -The CL-2’s provided a wide sound stage for the left, right, and surround listening requirements for movies, as well as an excellent front stage for music listening. The wide dispersion of both the mid and high frequencies provided a good immersive soundfield for movie surround tracks, as well as good depth and ambience for music-only material. -The CL-S10 Sub is an excellent match for the system. With its 10-inch front driver, the subwoofer provided very deep deep, tight, and detailed […]
