  • 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...

    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 ...
  • About that Pirate Bay/Google snafu…it was just a glitch

    The interwebs were in a tizzy late last week when The Pirate Bay was taken down and removed from Google search results. Many started speculating almost immediately (myself included) that the end was near for the once great site that defied common laws in countries around the globe. However it appears as if TPB has escaped outright death in the near term. Apparently the whole snafu was nothing more than a simple error on Google's part. The DMCA takedown notice that was responsible for TPB's...
  • Is your PSP-3000 screen looking a little unhappy?

    Internet forums have been ablaze the last couple of days with angry psp-300 owners.  At first the screen was something one would sit and simply drool not so much.  It seems some nasty little surprises have popped up. Interlacing, jagged edges, scan lines and some pretty nasty pixelation are rearing their ugly heads in what is quickly becoming a nightmare for Sony.  One would think that Sony would hop to it and issue a fix for their disgruntled customers ASAP.  Sorry disgrun...
