And now for something completely NOT different – Chatroulette 2

Chatroulette came back today after a week offline when we (parents/others) were hoping that they were having a spring clean to dust away all of the cobwebs (Nasty bits). Sadly not, from what I hear it is still the same, the cobwebs still there, in all their glory! One report from Mashable  said that it was a full 4 mins of refreshing before the naked male appendages stopped appearing on the screen.   http://mashable.com/2010/08/30/chatroulette-is-back/   I really did think that’s why they took it offline for so long.  From what I’ve read there are a few interface changes here and […]

Am I an Xbox Widow?

Xbox widows are people that complain that their spouses are playing on the Xbox all the time, that they are in second place to the console. You can read on websites that some people are relegated to the bedroom to watch the 14inch portable TV all night, while their partner plays on the Xbox on the 42inch plasma.

Something else to worry about – Facebook Places

Last night I stayed up to watch the Facebook Event in Paulo Alto, CA, to find out about the new Places product.  Places is a new geo-location or check-in utility that enable users on mobile phones to notify friends of their current location that is initially going to be available in the US but soon to come to the UK. Its all very exciting as I love a new product especially if its free, and for grown ups setting up meetings and such like it could prove useful. However as usual I’m worried about our kids, safety and privacy. Facebook […]

What an exciting day for a certain teenager – Twifficiency

What an exciting day for a certain teenager its been today…… For me it started like this – I logged to twitter this morning and I immediately noticed trusted friends tweeting their Twifficiency scores, ooh I thought, that’s new, the scores are low, I wonder what it means.  And I, like lots of other people clicked on the link to see what my score would be.
