  • Ha, Facebook translates Spanish birthday greetings into “Fuck you bitches”. That’s how they roll.

    Of all the instances of things slipping through the cracks or someone "going out with a bang", Facebook's July 29th 2010 snafu will forever stay in my memory. The snafu, discovered by a TechCrunch reader, apparently involved (note the past tense -- Facebook has already fixed the glitch) a small issue when changing your Facebook profile's main language to Spanish. Up in the top right where birthdays are announced, the words "Fuck you bitches" resided instead. Not exactly the Happy Birthday...

    Recall the whole AT&T; upload capping drama from a few weeks back? It turned out that it wasn't some menacing plan by the Death Star carrier afterall. Instead, one of their business partners, Alcatel-Lucent suffered from a software problem that rendered AT&T; uploads on their hardware painfully slow. Good news folks -- a fix is rolling out as I type! According to AT&T;, a mere 2% of their user base was affected. Nonetheless, the current update should restore those blindingly fast (unless you...

    For all of the bitching that people partake of concerning various flips and flops in the tech world, we rarely hear of a follow-up as to what the company in question is doing to things right. Last week, McAfee had a bad week. An update was somehow cleared for public consumption packing a nasty bug -- it incorrectly identified svchost.exe (a critical windows process) as a virus, thus deleting it and causing a repeating boot loop. Uh-oh... (more...)...

    Nothing is ever "perfect", especially in the software world. There's always a bug, a glitch, a security hole or some other failure in the code that lets bad things happen. Apple however, generally has a pretty good grip on such things on the iPhone platform. The iPhone 3.1.3 update on the other hand, isn't one of their better moments. iPhone support forums across the web are voicing problems with battery life and how it's displayed as well as issues with iTunes playlists. Being that the iTu...
  • HTC HD2 going Pink…

    Now before you think this "pink" reference is made to some popular womens lingerie store, I'll come ahead and crush your dreams -- it's not. Instead this is a bit more sinister. Much like the Droid is having issues with it's camera, it seems as if the HD2 (popular device this morning isn't it...?) has problems of it's own. While the Droid currently lacks the ability to focus because of a random, weird ass cycle because of a time stamp bug, the HD2 has a nasty case of the pink halo. This halo...

    Until the Moto Sholes pops into the world, the Sprint branded HTC Hero is the coolest piece of hardware to be graced by Android. Since the launch of the device roughly one week ago, reviews both professional and amateur have been highly praising of the wonder gadget. The only monkey wrench that seems to be appearing is an apparent bug concerning an "always awake" handset after sending a text with the stock SMS app. If you think you're clean and clear because the backlight goes off you may be ...

    Gadgets aimed towards the younger years of our lives are becoming more common place as increasingly complex electronic circuits make their way into said gadgets. While you, a 42 year old individual may not have the slightest clue about gadgets/computers, chances are your 4-year old grandson could wipe the floor with you in regards to geeky knowledge. What better way to reward little Jimmy than to give him something that will allow him to connect a good number of his gadgets all at once: The ...
