    As The Next Web reported, users are finding that their Facebook status messages aren’t being cross-posted to Twitter even though they’ve set up their accounts to do so. I first noticed this the other night, but thought nothing of it, since I’m not really a fan of cross-posting. We reached out to both companies and Facebook let us know that this was indeed a bug and that… Read More

A 12V connection runs the show then you can plug your gaming console, MP3 player, DVD player or… Read More

We’re guessing not at all. Even the cheap-o stuff we fill our bachelor pads… Read More
