The significance of this update is the social aspect that gets added in. Namely Twitter, Facebook, and H...

    MySpace: dead. Facebook: still growing but old news. Twitter: here and now. YouTube, Flicker, Wikipedia....the list of entertainment, multimedia, and social networking services goes on for days. You take on each service as to it's relevance in the current online world will differ from mine. However, one thing that we can mostly agree on is that navigating to and signing in to each service can be time consuming and a pain. That's where 44 Tips looks to change things up. (more...)...
  • Twitter down for you? You’re not alone.

    Yes, the real time king is down yet again. Well, for some that is. According to Twitter's Status Blog, some users located throughout the world are experiencing connection problems. It's good to know I'm not going senile. Because of issues with the site, my full attention has been on fixing those problems, not scouring the internet for news goodies -- hence the reason I didn't know if Twitter was down or not. After finally taking a few minutes to check the web, it's worth noting that the Twi...
  • Hollywood exec’s the latest to completely botch the embracing of technology…

    Social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter allow people from all walks of life, pay grades, and geographic locations connect with one another as if they're physically right next to each other. Such things that spur people to keep seeking that bond. The NFL and NBA obviously have no idea about a thing called technology and the internet, but of all places, I would think Hollywood would have some sort of grasp. Apparently I was wrong as major Hollywood executives are bringin...
  • Twitter sees gold in Japan…launches Japanese mobile site

    Since the U.S. can officially be claimed "conquered", Twitter is setting it's sites on a larger, more global scale. Even though other U.S. based social networking giants such as Facebook and MySpace have failed to gain any real following in the east, Twitter is pushing onward in hopes it can do something different. Part of that "different" approach is new measures that aren't employed inside the U.S. For example, banner ads can be seen on the mobile Japanese version of Twitter. Such ads ar...

    Searching for a socially aware phone book that isn't limited to a particular hardware, software, service, or provider? Look no further than Orbit, a socially aware phone book that will tie you and your friends' social activities and social networking accounts into one easy to access location. From the brief time I've spent researching Orbit, I am rather impressed and hoping to give it a thorough, proper review once it officially launches. The feature that strikes me the most is how groups...

Thomas Moen and Arnteriksen (from were over in London for FOWA and managed to get a quick interview in with Kevin Rose. Even better, they got a sneak peak of the upcoming iPhone Digg app which Kevin unfortunately didn't show the rest of us.

  • Facebook getting sued by owner of overly vague, overly infringed patent.

    Copyrights are quickly becoming a joke these days as more and more "no-names" are coming out of the woodwork and suing multi-million dollar companies guessed it...multiple millions of dollars. Facebook has been through their fair share of lawsuits. Though, if you own or manage a large successful company, lawsuits are a given. The latest legal venture for Facebook is rather pointless and again highlights the growing pains the U.S. copyright system is going through. The plaintiff, ...

    One of the coolest Android apps available currently available hands down is that of Layar. This seemingly average socially "aware" augmented reality browser displays real time info about various places using your phone's camera, GPS, compass, etc. isn't sitting still in terms of development and advancement. Come November, this nifty little app will be making a mighty large move into the third dimension. As you can see from the photo above, the possibilities and doors that can be heard openi...
  • Facebook 1.6 for BlackBerry released. Brings OS 5.0 compatibility. OS 5.0 imminent?

    Sometimes, being on the up and up of technology means having to go without. Without your favorite accessory, your favorite theme/skin, or your favorite application. In the case of those loyal BlackBerry users who chuckle at constant reports of OS 5.0 "coming soon" as they've been using it for many weeks now, their cold hard reality of being that tech savvy has meant going without certain applications. Applications that currently aren't compatible with the leaked beta versions of BB OS 5.0 flo...
