The rumors have been swirling for months of a new iPad, and sure enough, we got one. And not only that, we got a new Apple TV to boot! For this story though, I want to focus on some of the updated features in the iPad. But the kicker, for me, was the 4G LTE capabilities that will be available with this new device.
Tech blog The Verge is reporting a rumor that the popular online gaming service Steam, is getting ready to build a console system for their service, which could be a problem for XBox 360 and the Playstation 3.

Microsoft fans are giddy this week, as the house that Gates built has released a consumer preview of their latest version of the Windows operating system, Windows 8.

If you have kids like me, sometimes you may let them on the computer, if they're old enough, to play a cute kid's game or something. When my daughter was much younger (she's 9 going on 10 now) her games were found on PollyPocket.com or Neopets.com. But now data thieves are targeting those kinds of Flash-based kids' games, not necessarily those sites mind you, to put trojans, malicious software that appears to be something safe, and other malware on your computer to steal your data, making your child an unwitting accomplice to the crime.
A new product hit the shelves recently that has lawmakers taking a close look at the side effects and dangers it can pose to consumers. It's called AeroShot, and it's inhalable caffeine. It's being marketed as a dietary supplement. More caffeine can't be bad, can it?
A few days ago, it was revealed that Google was by passing privacy policies in Apple's Safari web browser. Some privacy advocates and members of Congress are calling for Google to answer why they were doing it. Now, it has been revealed that Google is doing the same with Microsoft's Internet Explorer. So is Google starting to turn to the "Dark Side"? What happened to their motto of "Don't Be Evil"?
Any new technology can be abused and misused out side of it's intended use. I can give you a billion examples of this, but I am focusing on a new one. Give some one a new toy and they'll figure it out all on their own. That's what seems to be going on with the TSA. They are having women step through the body scanners multiple times, to see their "naughty bits" on a computer screen.
Ever since the days of the Mercury flights, there has been "Big Iron" at NASA. "Big Iron" is slang for a computer mainframe, capable of running millions of computations a second. But with the current computer age and the power in a desktop or even a laptop, for what NASA does, those mainframes just are not needed any more. So, they are unplugging the last one.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Facebook would be offering stock, and that the initial amount raised would be somewhere in the $10 billion dollar mark or maybe even more. Now it has been reported that Mark Zuckerberg, will be exercising some of his shares and making a cool $5 Billion dollars, with a bill to the IRS for $2 billion. But he doesn't have to pay tax for the rest of the stock he owns, because he's not selling it.
Remember that embarrassing photo of you that you asked your friend to take down a couple years back? It may not be deleted. Arstechnica first reported and has been following up on a story of how Facebook's systems have not been deleting photos and are still accessible, even though Facebook has said they are gone. Now 3 years later, it's the same story.
The day that many investors have been waiting for may finally be here.
