Think The Net Neutrality Fight Is Over? Think Again.

When the Obama administration approved strong new net neutrality rules earlier this year, advocates rejoiced. “We have won on net neutrality,” Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told The Guardian. President Barack Obama declared victory and thanked Reddit, the self-proclaimed “Front Page of the Internet” for its community’s activism on the issue.

But these celebrations may have been premature. Telecom and cable companies, which provide broadband access to the vast majority of Americans, are challenging the Obama administration’s actions in court. If they get their way, a federal appeals court will soon delay some rules that aim to protect net neutrality, the principle that all internet traffic should be treated equally. Open-Internet advocates fear that an unfavorable decision may open the door for harmful business practices while the court battle—which could take years—plays out. A stay on part of the new rules would also likely embolden Republicans on Capitol Hill who seek to pass laws gutting the rules.

Friends don’t let idiots snap selfies while driving

Frequency of the word “selfie” in the English language has increased by 17,000 percent in the past year, according to Oxford Dictionaries, which crowned the narcissistic love child of cellphone cameras and social media “Word of the Year 2013” on Monday. But it’s the rising frequency of selfies snapped from the wheel that concerns another venerable organization, AAA, the group formerly known as the American Automobile Association.

“Selfies are a relatively new phenomenon so we don’t have [traffic accident] data specifically related to selfies, but we do know any use of cellphones increases crash risk,” Sharon Gilmartin, a AAA analyst for traffic safety policy, told NBC News.

Professional Glass Porn Is Here And Google Can’t Stop It

Leave a comment

Google doesn’t want porn on Glass, the company’s hotly anticipated (and mocked) eyewear-computer combination.

However, we all know that where there is technology there will be porn.

Earlier this week, Motherboard announced that adult app company MiKandi recently sponsored a professional pornographic video shot with Google Glass. Well-known porn stars James Deen and Andy San Dimas wore Google Glass while having sex. The technique was a clever end-run around Google’s ban on pornographic applications. (You can watch the video on YouTube.)

“While developers cannot share Glass apps that serve sexually explicit content,” Mikandi CEO Jesse Adams told Fast Company, “there doesn’t seem to be any terms that prohibit users from shooting their own adult content.”

Red Hot Dating App Tinder Officially Arrives On Android, Begins Hooking Up With Big Media



Click link below picture


The Digital Dating World has seen its fair share of companies come and go over the years, and few have been able to give the usual suspects, like eHarmony, Match.com and OkCupid, a run for their respective monies. However, since bursting onto the scene in October of last year, Tinder has been making a play to become the next digital dating giant by focusing on an area where few (if any) of its predecessors have excelled: Your phone.

Drawing on the same addictive formula behind Hot or Not, Tinder allows those in search of a date (or a little casual flirting) to swipe through Facebook-powered profiles of prospective matches, accepting or rejecting based on visual appeal. Sure, it’s a bit superficial, but its game-ified approach to flirting is also more than a little addicting and has taken off among the SnapChat generation, beginning with college campuses.

In fact, since launching in October, Tinder has spread like wildfire — a fact that, as we reported in May, has had investors and potential acquirers drooling. Today, Tinder co-founder and CEO Sean Rad tells us, users have rated over seven billion profiles, and the app has served over 100 million matches in all (and is currently adding 1.5 million matches/day and growing, he says.)

How To Stop People From Snooping On You With Facebook’s Graph Search




Click link below picture


On Monday, Facebook officially rolled out Graph Search to everyone on the social network. The new search engine, originally accessible to only a select group after its introduction in March, lets you search through the mountains of information the site’s more than 1 billion members produce daily. Starting this week, everyone with a Facebook account can find “friends from London who like ‘True Blood’ ” or “married people who like prostitutes.”

In Facebook’s attempt to connect friends and friends of friends to one another, your information, now fed into a search engine, is more public ever before. If you’re irked by the the idea of strangers finding out personal details of your life with a few clicks in a search bar, there are steps you can take to ensure your privacy on Facebook.

Cybercriminals Hacked 15 Financial Firms for $15 Million Over 2 Years

At least $15 million was stolen via online infiltration of 15 financial companies — including JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Citigroup (C), E*Trade (ETFC), PayPal (EBAY), TIAA-CREF, and TD Ameritrade (AMTD) — overly a nearly two-year period. The perpetrators of the scheme were a group of hackers and identity thieves led by two Ukrainian nationals, according to authorities. Eight men have been charged, and four are in custody, the LA Times reports.

“Cybercriminals penetrated some of our most trusted financial institutions as part of a global scheme that stole money and identities from people in the United States,” said New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman in a statement. The criminal complaint against the men alleges that they moved money from online accounts onto prepaid debit cards, then used the cards to withdraw cash from ATMs or make purchases throughout the United States. According to the LA Times, “Much of the money that was cashed out was wired to the two leaders.”

How to Make Free International Calls on Your Cell Phone

Leave a comment


Click link below picture


If you have friends, family, and business associates overseas that you talk to, you know it’s not cheap.  Most phone plans have hefty charges for international calling, so staying in touch can leave you with a fat bill at the end of the month.  You can try using phone cards, but the savings are not always impressive, and it can be a hassle to deal with all those PIN numbers.

While there are ways to communicate cheaply through services such as Skype, free calling generally requires both parties to be at their PC when talking, or the use of inconvenient Wi-fi access during the call.

Now however, there is a new company that has developed some very clever programs that allow you to easily call anyone at hugely reduced rates. And, if you’re calling to one of 50 different countries, you can make the call for free. The service is called Rebtel, and they’ve been building their international presence since 2006.  Today, they have over 10 million users—so, they must be doing something right!
