Scared? You should be. Why the extreme evesdropping and invasion of privacy? It was all in the name of "national security". Because somehow taking the needle in a haystack idea and multiplying it one thousand fold will make it soooo easy to catch the creepers. Well some sort of good n...

    Twitter is no doubt the latest craze, though a large part of the recent traffic spike could be attributed to all of the media coverage concerning the now infamous Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN race to one million followers. Celebrity draw aside, Twitter has been growing each month at levels that any company or business would die for.

    Verizon FiOS users who once bragged about their insanely fast internet connection will now be left sucking the dust from Optimum Online/Cable Vision subscribers. Just announced, Cable Vision's new Ultra plans put the speed back in speed. With numbers like 101 Mbps down and 15 Mbps up, you can sure put a mighty dent in several RIAA/label/copyright holders' pockets. (Not that we're endorsing that in any way). Speed with such swiftness must cost an arm and a leg and maybe even a sacrificial...
