Lose the fat: Facebook Lite emerges…
Over the last couple years, Facebook has exploded in popularity surpassing the once great MySpace. The draw for many was the slick, quick, and uncluttered interface. Well, with the addition of every quiz, app, and game underneath the sun, Facebook is turning into the bloated giant MySpace still is. What to do? Cut the fat that’s what. Since Facebook started adding all of the frilly junk, many users have been begging for a “Facebook Lite” that gives them the good ‘ol Facebook free from distractions. Well, that time has come…at least for U.S. and UK users. Facebook Lite has officially launched for the previously two mentioned countries giving users a glimpse at simpler times while allowing them to get down and dirty with social networking at its very core free from the fluff that is quickly filling up the regular Facebook. If you’d like to give it a spin and reminisce about yesteryear or are simply tired of the crap filling up your Facebook profile, go ahead and give Facebook Lite a try at Lite.Facebook.com and lets us know what you think of it.
**Update: Reports are coming in that many more countries across the big blue are able to access lite.facebook.com. I’ve been playing around with it for several hours now and can honestly say it is leaps and bounds better — faster, much less cluttered, and overall more enjoyable. Agree?

Even though I wasn’t initially enamored with Twitter, I have come around in the last year. While I’m still by no means a twit-a-holic, I do find myself spending more and more time on the popular micro-blogging network. Since I jumped ship from my iPhone to the Android platform, I’ve been looking far [...]

Thinking of the craziest yet useful gadget wouldn’t normally involve a couch. But the minds behind the USB Sofa are some special breed of human. I mean, couches do nothing but sit, stationary, never moving unless one of us humans move them. Why not make all of that wasted space go to [...]
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? In Cnet’s article they go [...]
One of the few faults I have with the Android platform is the lack of killer apps and polished apps. But one app by Levelup Studios called “Touiteur” looks like it will finally bring awesome functionality and eye candy. Ok, I’ll admit that this app does take some iPhone-esque styling cues. Even [...]
I don’t know about you, but when I see a clever usage of Twitter whether it’s a tweeting beer keg or a tweeting cat, I find myself smiling and realizing the overall joys in life are small, nerdy, and just plain innovative. Innovative isn’t what some would call “GitEmSteveDave’s” crazy Coffee-on-a-car contraption with other [...]

Have you been sitting at your desk staring at Outlook and wondering why you couldn’t view other types of information about your contacts? I’m not talking about the simple information you can find by opening up the address book. I’m talking about integration with outside sources. Sources such as social networking sites. [...]
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 [...]
