Facebook is all about giving its users a one-stop-shop for all of their social needs, and Facebook Camera is another facet of that.

Once you're logged in to Facebook Camera, all the photos in your News Feed from your Facebook friends appear on the screen. And just like any other status update or post, you can Like or add … Read more

Zortam Mp3 Media Studio is an all-in-one program for managing your MP3 collection, editing song tags, searching for and adding lyrics and cover art, and much more. It accesses and edits a lot more information about your MP3s, including ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags. It's freeware, but when you install it, you actually get the Pro version, which is shareware. If you don't buy the Pro version, it reverts to the standard program after a three-day trial period. But some of the Pro features we can live without or already have tools for, such as Normalization, CD Ripper, and … Read more
Face tags on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 are neat features of the Gallery app. When you take photos of people, the app places yellow boxes over their faces, then allows you to tag them by tapping on the yellow boxes. However, if you're not interested in using face tags, the yellow boxes can be distracting when viewing your photos. Disabling face tags prevents the yellow boxes from appearing. Here's how to disable them:
Step 1: Launch the Gallery app and select a photo to view.
Step 2: Tap the Menu key and select "Face … Read more
We are all driven by compulsions.
They circumvent our normal thinking systems. They propel us toward the objects of our desire. They force us, at times, to pay a terrible price.
Please, therefore, offer sympathy to Richard Almaraoui, a 35-year-old man from Norfolk, U.K., who appears to be driven to steal other people's things.
So much so that after a previous offense he was ordered by a court to wear an electronic tag.
These things tend to monitor your whereabouts in a fairly accurate way. Perhaps, then, it's best not to burgle a stranger's home, as … Read more

Facebook is testing a couple of new features that, as usual, some people may like and others not so much.
The two features would add notices of upcoming events and recently released albums to a user's news feed, according to The Next Web.
The upcoming events feature would suggest nearby events. But these would be events that you wouldn't necessarily have been invited to join, revealed blog site AllFacebook. This is also a follow-up to the upcoming concerts feature that the social network started testing last month.
The recently released albums feature would list new albums by artists … Read more
The lovely thing about technology is that it helps you control children.
They need to be controlled. Otherwise, they will run amok and do all sorts of dreadful things, like go to the restroom, smoke cigarettes, or kiss each other.
Hanging IDs with RFID chips around students' necks isn't exactly new. Some Texas schools have been enjoying it for some time.
However, recently, the Northside Independent Schools District in San Antonio encountered a little consternation when it announced its foray into the idea -- one that is reportedly being instituted to combat truancy (and therefore make the schools more money).
Now that the IDs are in force, a counter-force has emerged: civil disobedience.
I would like to identify MySanAntonio.com as suggesting that most kids happily accept the new tags, as their path through school (if they show up) is made simpler and quicker. For example, in the lunch queue. … Read more
