I like sites that descomplicam life users. And with Sony still trying, but failing miserably at the task, delete the huge target that they put back, opened up a space for the creation of such a site. It is called Has Been Hacked Sony This Week?, Which in Portuguese means “Sony was hacked this week?”. Continue reading
The Yahoo Mail followed the trend of PSN and became inaccessible to many users during the afternoon. The staff of the service confirmed that there was a problem, but shied away from explaining what was going on or how many people were affected by the problem. “We appreciate your patience,” wrote Yahoo on Twitter. Anyway, stay calm, because things are already normalized. Unlike PSN it is evident.

Buzz, Yahoo service that tried to compete in the ocean aggregator sites social news like Digg and Reddit will be closed. They failed to garner enough traffic and the service will therefore discontinued. From the day 21 no one else will be able to access the site.

When there was still no good official application of Twitter in iOS platform, I remember well that Echofon led the absolute preference of our readers.

Traveling is always good. Especially when you can actually enter the country you always wanted to know. Too bad that was not what happened to Alberto Azevedo (or Bebeto, as he is known among friends). The businessman, who also attacks DJ as hobby , tried to enter Australia, but his visa was canceled after the police found your Twitter and Facebook.
What is it? An innovative feature has just been implemented in the e-mail service that no one expected? Well, my dear readers. This time it was not Google who went ahead. In a master balcony, Microsoft decided to activate a feature that lets Hotmail about 150% more useful than it is today, when 90% of its users (an estimate completely unofficial withdrawal of fresh air) only create an address service to use the Windows Live Messenger (even if it is not necessary).

The blog Dig Social Media pointed a service rather, that lets you know which are the pages most likes on Facebook from around the world. The differential Facebakers is view the statistics by country, instead of having a more global positioning of the whole thing (which is what usually happens).

Last week the site ArsTechnica released its review of the MacBook Air with information somewhat bombastic, at least for Adobe: Flash sites when opening the battery life fell within 2 hours. Other sites have made similar tests and reached similar results, sometimes identical, to the ArsTechnica. Today Adobe CTO decided that would be a good time to rebut criticism.

And now the same AOL plans to buy one of the major search engines in the world. Yes, yes, it is Yahoo that is in the crosshairs of the American media giant, said the newspaper Wall Street Journal.

They asked me to write here in TB analyzing the current situation of vlogs in Brazil, who promptly refused, after all, far from me wanting to be a “social media analyst”. This function is quite important and requires a high degree of study for me to quit talking as if he had gone through all this intense Herculean training. Continue reading
Much is said about the HTML5, the new HTML version that should come to solve all the standard problems for video display, audio, among other things. The technology has won support from several large companies such as Microsoft, Apple and Google, which have implemented certain aspects in their respective browsers.
