      There's nothing more frustrating than rushing to get ready for whatever occasion, realizing you forgot something on the way to the train station, then getting to the station only to realize your train has been delayed. Sure you can sign onto the computer and visit Metra's website for advisories, but who has time for that? Gadget loving readers of mine, if you happen to use Twitter and ride Chicago's Metra train system you can now receive Tweets of Metra train delays.  Read on for the f...
  • Twitter lessons coming to UK primary schools?

    In what would certainly be a bold new direction in education, the British government is proposing that Twitter be taught in primary schools.  Why?  They want children to get a good grasp and understanding of technology, the internet, and social networking at an early age.  They also see the limitless possibilities that Twitter itself could have in the classroom in regards to communication skills.  Besides Twitter, the proposal also highlights teaching how to make podcasts, blogging, and ...
  • Twitter finally starting to make their own money. *Update…not quite*
    by Mike
    Posted March 23rd, 2009 at 3:34 pm
    Twitter has been in our lives for several years now. Through those several years they have grown into an internet giant with millions upon millions of users everyday. One would think that an online outfit such as Twitter would be raking in tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of dollars. If you thought just that, you would wrong. Up until recently, Twitter survived solely on outside money not made by their own services. Today is a new dawn and the young Twitter we have grown old...
  • Yatca + Blackberry = Happy Tweets!
    by Mike
    Posted March 16th, 2009 at 8:23 am
    Yes...another Twitter post.  This time though it revolves around the Blackberry world.  I'm pleased to announce Yatca for Blackberry, the latest and "yet another" Twitter client for the Candian born messaging giant (4.6+ deviecs only).  Yatca litteraly stands for "Yet another Twitter Client Application"...catchy!  Yatca's claim to fame is the fact that it is tied into the Blackberries messaging services meaning all Yatca updates appear in your message inbox as well as giving you the abil...

    Imagine if you were a massively successful website with staggering month over month growth.  You would think that such a website would pay dearly for a recongnizable logo as to identify themselves to the world.  Today we're looking at Twitter, the quickly expanding micro blogging site that is taking the world by storm.  More and more people are signing up for Twitter.  And individuals aren't just the only ones signing up.  Businesses, such as HTC, are using Twitter to announce products ...

    To those of you social bugs out there who happen to own a Mac, you might have heard about a little instant messaging application called "Adium".  Adium is a multi-messaging power house that includes just about every IM service under the sun.  Twitter users who also fulfill the above two requirements will soon have a new reason to spread their happy little wings as Twitter will soon be integrated into Adium.  The new Adium feature will allow you to follow/unfollow feeds, reply to just to n...
  • Twitter to start charging commercial customers?
    by Mike
    Posted February 10th, 2009 at 10:44 am
    Because the U.S. economy is doing amazing (obvious sarcasm), individuals as well as corporations and institutions are hurting for money.  Twitter (a microblogging service...sort of like a mini-facebook if you will) is no different.  What is strange is that even after nearly 3 years of operation, they still don't have any revenue model.  Odd for a company that is growing and as large as Twitter has become.  A company that uses vast amounts of data, has no revenue plan whatsoever, and give...

    Posted January 5th, 2009 at 12:16 pm
    On top of the all-in-one computer I mentioned earlier, Lenovo is releasing 3 new Y series notebooks.  Designed around HD multimedia, the 14" Y450, 15" Y550, and 16" Y650 will all have 16:9 glossy displays and Nvidia GFX graphics to showcase movies in widescreen format and to allow colors to pop off the screen all without breaking a sweat.  A multi-touch trackpad, up to 500GB hard drive, and up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM round out a rather appealing set of notebooks.  The design of the notebooks ...

    Venture Beat, by way of Daily Tech Talk, Twitter has been phished!  Now if you are a twit-a-holic, be careful.  If you receive a twit saying "hey! check out this funny blog about you… jannawalitax . blogspot . com" DO NOT FOLLOW IT!  It takes you to a fake login page that will allow the phisher to steal your login and password so they can send the link to many more people.  According to Daily Tech Talk, the sub-domain of the phony site is based out of China.  As of writing Twitter ...
