    How To Undo Facebook Hiding Your Email Address Before Your Friends Use iOS 6 Contact Sync

    Millions of people are downloading iOS 6 right now, and many will use the Facebook contact sync feature to pull in photos and current phone numbers of friends.

These addresses don’t actually deliver to your email, but instead to your Facebook Messages Inbox. Why? Because with… Read More

    Jimmy Kimmel Proves: Apple’s Magic Is In The Brainwash

    Apple has definitely perfected its magic trick. There’s no doubt about that. The company has the ability to brainwash, and I say that as someone who has been brainwashed myself by the beauty and simplicity of Apple products. But it stretches far beyond the actual hardware, software, or services, and delves straight into brand perception. Reports even suggest that fanbois’… Read More

    Uber Screwed Me (But At Least It Bought Me Breakfast!)

    Uber Screwed Me (But At Least It Bought Me Breakfast!)

    I’ve been in a wonderful state of bliss for the past week boating in North Carolina (did ya miss me? I missed you). But I came back today and I’m still pretty pissed at Uber for charging me $97 for a $65 ride to the airport last Friday. More importantly, the charge worries me about the company’s future. Last Friday I needed to get from my apartment (by AT&T Park) to SFO. Read More

    Internet Darling The Oatmeal Wants To Build A Tesla Museum And You Can Help

    Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal (who could, arguably, make more comics instead of being the Internet’s Sarah McLachlan for geek causes) has taken up the ultimate in geek causes: rebuilding Nikola Tesla’s lab in Shoreham, New York.

I arrived at the Aol 770 Broadway offices on Thursday and was met with the above glass situation at the TechCrunch NYC cubicle headquarters. After several moves, the… Read More

    How Google+ Punk’d The Oatmeal

    Since The Oatmeal draws comics like 5 Ways To Fight A Crack Whore, the kids down in Mountain View figured they could play a joke on him. This summer the artist wrote that Google+ comment threads sound like *crickets*, poking fun at the social network’s lack of engagement. He also criticized not being able to “set up a fancy profile URL so I don’t have to link people… Read More

    Kevin Rose began an AMA on Reddit on Tuesday evening and so far has answered zero questions. To be fair, he said ask me anything. He didn’t promise answers. Users have posted questions like, “What is your biggest regret with Digg?” Read More
