Decide Which Facebook Friends See You Online & Which Don’t, The Easy Way

Facebook is great and the chat function makes it even better. However, we all have at least one “friend” who always talks to us while we’re online. Or, if you’re really unlucky, more than one friend. If you’re that unfortunate, I pity you. But thankfully there is a way to change this. And it’s easy! But, depending on your circumstances, it may not be quick. The process is made up of two parts.

Winter Is Coming, Avoid The Cold Weather Blues By Playing Some Ski Safari [iPhone]

Get The Most Out Of iTunes 11 With These 10 Tips

A few of these tips are work-arounds for features Apple left out in iTunes 11, like iTunes DJ, while others point out a few new handy features you might overlook. iTunes is not a perfect media player, and it still may be a little confusing for some users, but the key to getting the most out of iTunes is to focus on the features you need and ignore the ones you don’t, as I heard iTunes expert Kirk McElhearn once say.

Google Gesture Search: Better Than Your Launcher [Android]

Look at your phone. Now look at me. Now look at your phone. Now me. Okay, how many apps do you have installed on your droid? 50? 100? I bet you don’t even know! To start those, you probably pop open your launcher’s app drawer, and scroll through screen after screen suffocating with a dense grid of icons, looking for the one you need. You could be using Google Gesture Search for those infrequent apps. It’s an official Google app, and it’s free.

The Emoticon Is Thirty! But Where Did It Come From? [Geek History]

In 2012, the emoticon as we know it turned thirty years old.

How did such a prominent feature of modern day communication even come about?
