Traveling Through Time With Location Based Technologies

It’s been a slow week across the social media and search engine world.  Most of the online hype has been about the iPad, which came out over the weekend.  Other than that, nothing.

Mashable.com has been doing a great job of keeping their readers entertained with social media news with a few infographics.  Yesterday, I shared one of those with you, comparing Facebook’s American population to the actual countries population.  Today, I decided to share with you “The History of Location Technology.” (more…)

April Fools On The Web

Today is April 1, 2010, which is also known to many of us as April Fools Day.  And depending on how gullible you are today could turn into a long day.  For me, I was fooled before 6 this morning and I have a feeling I have a surprise or two more coming at me.  Even though I know not to believe anything anyone says today, I still happen to fall for it!

Today however, there are a number of sites trying to fool everyone.  I thought that we would take a look at some of the top online pranks today! (more…)
