Facebook Video Scam Infects Mac And Windows

Posted by cakosaculuga on Thursday, June 02, 2011 4:15pm

Facebook Video Scam Infects Mac And WindowsIn the tech world, the phrase "gets better with time" is infrequently, if ever, used. Hackers may be the only apart fromion to that rule, and they seem to be on a faster learning curve than Facebook.

A video scam has been circulating on Facebook since Tuesday, tricking users into downloading and installing software by offering up a video of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. On Wednesday, hackers switched the bait to what was supposed to be a saucy video of Hayden Panettiere and Rhianna. Both video links actually lead to a website that attempts to install fake security software.

A Snapshot Of Photo-Sharing Market Share On Twitter

Posted by Karen Thomas on Thursday, June 02, 2011 4:10pm

A Snapshot Of Photo-Sharing Market Share On TwitterAs we heard yesterday Twitter is partnering with Photobucket to allow users to upload a photo attached to a Tweet directly from's web and mobile clients. This, of course, is interesting considering the competition from the existing number of photo-sharing apps that are built on top of Twitter's API. TwitPic, yFrog, Lockerz Photos (previously Plixi), and others all now face competition from Twitter's new photo-sharing feature. Social media monitoring and analytics firm Sysomos took a look at the current photo sharing space on Twitter, examining how and where people are sharing tinheritor photos.

While Sysomos took a snapshot of one day of photo-sharing on Twitter, the firm says that they did a sampling of others days as well and the results were similar. On May 30, 14.9% of all tweets contained a link. Of all the tweets from that day 1.25% contained a link to a picture from a photo sharing service, indicating that one-twelfth of all links shared are photos. On a engaged day, Twitter users send around 170 million Tweets, so 2.2 million Tweets daily link to pictures from third party services.

Report: Whitney Houston Diagnosed With lethal Emphysema

Posted by Tejuhe Yaqekoc on Thursday, June 02, 2011 4:07pm

Report: Whitney Houston Diagnosed With Deadly EmphysemaOn the heels of sub par and canceled live performances, Whitney Houston now has a much more serious low to battle -- emphysema. According to the National Enquirer, doctors informed the singer that she is suffering from early stages of the lung disease, an apparent culprit to Houston's badly received vocal performances, as of late.

"She is developed emphysema -- and her doctors are warning her she'll die a horrible death," a friend of the singer told the Enquirer.

Medical professionals have also told Houston, 47, that if she doesn't totally kick her smoking habit there is no doubt that the disease will take her life. But Houston is not so eager on ditching the cigs, and the task of weening the 'I Wanna Dance with Somebody' singer off of her crutch has fallen to 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristin -- who, fresh off a stint in rehab, is recovering from her own substance addictions.

Nestio Is Like A Tripit For Apartment Searches

Posted by rotatoro on Thursday, June 02, 2011 3:15pm

Nestio Is Like A Tripit For Apartment SearchesWhen you are looking for a new apartment, or a new place to live, there are fairly a few sites you can turn to for real estate listings. There is Craigslist if you are feeling saucy, Redfin, Zillow,, and Trulia, to name a few. As my colleague Erick Schonfeld pointed out final year, there is room for competition in this market, and there is potential for profitability. But not for a clone.

Real estate listings sites can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. it is also tough to keep track of the places you have looked at without creating an outside document or leaving sticky paper money all over your computer screen, which is why Nestio is trying to be something akin to Tripit for the apartment search, rather than just another real estate listings app. Launching today in the app store, Nestio is a service meant to supplement listings sites by adding some much needed association to your apartment search.

Windows 8 Is Gorgeous, But Is It More Than Just A Shell? (Video)

Windows 8 Is Gorgeous, But Is It More Than Just A Shell? (Video)

Yesterday, Microsoft showed off Windows 8 for the first time, and it is gorgeous (check it out in the video above). it is also the biggest change to the look and feel of Windows since Windows 95.

Windows 8 is all designaled around a touch interface, with tiles replacing icons and swiping replacing drag-'n-drop. Instead of a Start button that pops up at the lower lefthand corner of your screen, you're greeted with a grid of tiles as the new Start screen. With this new touch user interface, Microsoft is hiding the complexity of Windows, but that complexity still exists underneath. Whether or not this is a flaw or a feature will be debated.

Posted by Taqad Fibinef on Thursday, June 02, 2011 2:17pm

Has Christopher Plummer Made Peace With 'Sound of Music'? 'Oh, God No'Christopher Plummer's latest role in 'Beginners,' is somewhat of a departure. He plays the father of Ewan McGregor who has two big announcements -- that he has terminal cancer and (surprise!) he is gay. it is a lovely, bittercandy film with yet another winning performance from the 81-year-old Canadian. In a chat with us, the beloved stage, TV and film actor spoke about the motivation behind his latest role, then dips into the past by defending his decision to turn down the role of Gandalf in 'The Lord of the Rings' (too much time commitment) and becomes flustered when reintellected of fans' enduring obsession with the most visible film in his 100-film-plus catalog, 'The Sound of Music.'

"Yeah, it drives me nuts," he says about all the fuss over the 1965 film. "It hasn'thing to do with the film, it is just a relentless pursuing of this film that goes on and on and i have gone on and on, far above and beyond it and then to be reintellected of it. God almighty what is the matter with people?"
