Imagine a life without the Internet for 24 hours. Could this even happen? Yes and even if just for a single day, the prospect sounds terrifying. Imagine a day without email, Twitter, and Facebook. No Google to search for assignments or research, no You Tube to enjoy – in many ways, it seems synonymous with life halting for a day, doesn’t it?
Wondering “Am I addicted to Facebook?” You could be, according to Norwegian researcher, Cecilie Schou Andreasson, who claims Facebook Addiction is a real threat.
Suffice it to say, addictions are rough! People can become addicted to many things: food, video games, the Internet, sex, and drugs, to name a few. Some people are considered to have a clinical iPhone addiction and – believe it or not –there are even people who are addicted to love!
Norwegian researcher, Cecilie Schou Andreasson claims that there is a new type of addiction, a social networking addiction of sorts, also known as “Facebook Addiction.”
Technology meets art. Artist Henry Hargreaves, a still-life art and fashion photographer working out of his studio in Brooklyn, NYC, takes us on a journey of the connection between fast food and gadgets; technology and art, in this deep fried photos series.
Today Geek is Chic. In fact Mark Zukerberg‘s wedding got the Paparazzi as excited as Lady Gaga’s latest world tour. In our day and age it seems as though there’s been a paradigm shift. Techies now draw the same attention as Hollywood celebs. Ironically, unlike many “reality stars,” techies are famous for actually doing (or creating) something.
Etiquette is about more than the correct fork or knife. In today’s society, which is increasingly dependent on technology (with texting more common place than talking), business etiquette is as critical as ever.
In conjunction with National Business Etiquette Week (June 3 to 9), Elizabeth Venturini, a college admissions and career strategist, debuts: ‘Charm School for the College-Bound,’ a workshop for young people on the essentials of business etiquette.
When a woman falls for man, it happens because her heart tells her so –right? Precious! But wait, is that really the case? How many times does the average woman fall in love? I surmise the answer can be derived from intense research of Sex and the City episodes –that’s arguable, perhaps. However, according to new research by the University of Texas at San Antonio, it is hormones that determine how and what kind of man a woman falls for.
- Facebook tops Google in weekly traffic.
- 1 in 5 couples meet online.

- eReaders have surpassed book sales.
- Social gamers will buy $6Bn of e-goods this year; movie theaters will sell only $2.5Bn of physical goods.

Welcome to the social media revolution.
Programming, which has developed into its own language, is now the favorite language of women, as more and more women have become interested in mastering it (even more so than French or Mandarin, for instance). Is it a positive sign of the times?
It began with internet/SMS lingo; and LOL was born. New acronyms followed suit (like OMG). Then emerged terms like Java and Python (no, not the place in Indonesia or the snake). Programming has developed into its own language and more and more women have become interested in mastering it (even more so than French or Mandarin, for instance). Is it a positive sign of the times?
Perhaps, women are tech savvy?
The Facebook wedding of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan raises eyebrows, with curious timing.
Last week, Facebook CEO married his long time girlfriend –but everyone knows that already. The curious timing is that he married her after becoming a billionaire 19 times over. Adding another curious fact is that the wedding was a backyard ceremony attended only by 100 or so of Zuckerberg’s friends. Those close to the couple say that they’ve been together for a decade and there’s no reason to doubt that this marriage will work out. Chan, who just graduated from Medical school, is regarded as a genius, much like her husband.
