How Many Facebook Friends Do You Have? [You Told Us]

I must admit I’m a little addicted to Facebook. Only a little, and certainly less than I used to be, but the need to log in often throughout the day in order to see what all of my Facebook friends have been up to is still present. I say Facebook friends because the idea of friendship has changed thanks to social networks, whether for better or worse. I’m not alone in being just slightly addicted to Facebook, or of social networks in general.

Beware: Sophisticated Obama Scam Can Take Over Your Twitter Account & Computer [Updates]

An elaborate Twitter scam involving a sensational tweet about Barack Obama has been detected by Panda Security. This scam lures its victims with a promise of a video showing president Barack Obama punching a man for cursing him, leads them to a fake Facebook page where it steals their Twitter credentials, and closes the deal by enticing them to download a malicious worm disguised as “an update for YouTube player”.

How To Make Windows Boot Faster Than Ever Before

One… two… three… how many minutes does it take your computer to start up? Hopefully not more than three, but it wouldn’t surprise me if you said it surpassed that time. The thing is, our computers have a lot to do when starting up and I think it’s something we often forget about and take for granted. That said, how can we blame our computers when we’re bogging it down with a bunch of junk?

5 Fullscreen News Apps For Windows 8

Do some reading, Metro-style. A variety of apps from major news sources and beyond give you quick, clutter-free ways to read the news you care about. If there’s one thing Windows 8’s new Metro (sorry, I’m not going to call it “Modern UI”) interface does very well it’s reading. The look is clean and keeps distractions out of the way – at least, once you’ve opened a given app. White space is used liberally and fonts are crisp and easy to read. This was all possible with Windows before, but now it’s the norm.

Is Bing Better Than Google Search? We Find Out

By many accounts, Bing is really giving Google a run for its money. On November 6th of this year, the Guardian reported that Google’s search share in the UK dipped under 90% as Bing’s share continued to climb. Now, I’ve always been one to cheer for the underdog, mostly because I never like the see the formation of a monopoly. However, is this really about real competition? Does Bing really have what it takes to go head-to-head and win against Google?
