Opera Mini 5 beta 2 now available!

Using a mobile device to browse the web was nothing short of an excruciating experience not too long ago. In fact, before the iPhone came along, it out right sucked. That is unless you had some flavor of Opera Mini running on your phone. The beauty of this browser was that the main rendering was done on Opera Mini’s servers wit the resulting content arriving at your phone being roughly 10% of the original size cutting loading time and increasing browsing speed…

YouTube to begin streaming full TV episodes for $1.99 a piece?

Are you a fancier of movie rentals or simply rentals in general? Some people like constant change. For those individuals, renting items and services for short periods of time and constantly switching things up is the way to go — for them anyway. I myself am more of a buy/rent-to-own kind of person. iTunes started dipping it’s toes in the streaming/rental program recently giving users $1.99 access to individual TV episodes that could be streamed and stored…

MPAA to FCC: Everyone loves Selectable Output Control. Critics = liars.

Still, end users don’t actively pay up to read as no…

So how heavy is the internet…?

An article appearing on Cnet today presented information trying to put a nice number figure on the actual weight of the internet. Now right off the bat, a lot of people are going to question the plausibility of such a calculation. Can you really weight the internet?

Free Xbox Live Gold service for Silver members.

Free Xbox Live Gold service for Silver members.

If you own an Xbox 360, chances are you more than likely have an Xbox Live gold account giving you free reign on Xbox Live. Without Live, the 360 is still good machine though significantly less desirable in my opinion. Whether the sinking economy stole your Xbox Live money or you simply haven’t ponied up the $50/year entrance fee because you’re “just not sure” it’s worth it, we can all agree that when someone offers you anything for free, you…
