Facebook as a Social Enterprise

I have been involved with social media since before the days of Friendster. It has come a long way since then and the evolution has taken place in a very short time frame. We are now at the peak of the Facebook Social Enterprise. Our lives are being held hostage by some gurus behind a screen. All our information is laying flat in front of the world. Groups such as Anonymous have vowed to hack Facebook if they don’t change their personal privacy regulation.

Recently I noticed that Facebook uploaded all my contacts phone numbers. I didn’t give anyone permission to do this but they did it anyway. Then it was my obligation to turn off the feature in facebook. Why is that so? Should I have to be always watching as social networking invades every inch of my privacy. The crazy part about it is that we let this happen to us. It is just another experiment to see how far the human can be controlled. It’s almost like a legal holocaust of our information. We are all being stripped down and thrown in front of the world. What’s next?

Is anything safe anymore? Does anyone even care that they are controlling all our information, how we build our personal networks, who we can and can’t see or talk to , where we can turn people off with the click of a button. How imaginative it is to just flip a switch and make your world a better place.

    Unboxing the fake Intel Core i7 that NewEgg was shipping

    By now, you’ve probably seen many of the homemade videos from people who ordered an Intel Core i7-920 processor from Newegg.com and received a bogus processor and hunk of plastic shaped like a fan. Newegg has thrown supplier IPEX Infotech of Freemont [corrected] California under the bus for this fiasco; in a statement released to Information Week, the retailer said, “We have since come to discover the CPUs were counterfeit and are terminating our relationship with this supplier.”

    PCMag.com did not order one. but luckily for us, myneighbor, Microsoft TechNet columnist Greg Steen, just happened to be one of the lucky 200 or so buyers, and he let me borrow it for the day. As you can see, the box looks very real, and the weight of the package is perfect. Lots more images after the jump!

    Jon Fitch vs Ben Saunders at UFC 111 Alves Ellenberger r out


    Dana White has told TMZ.com that Ben Saunders will replace Alves for the bout at UFC 111. If Fitch (21-3) can pull off a win, White says he will next in line for the title shot. This would not be Fitch’s first shot at the title as he lost to current Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre back in August 2008 by unanimous decision.

    Fitch and Alves were scheduled to fight in a featured UFC 111 bout with potential title implications. The duo first met in 2007, when Fitch defeated Alves. however, an irregularity in a pre-fight CT prompted the new Jersey State Athletic Control Board understandably to err on the side of caution and nix the rematch. As we reported earlier today, Alves’ agent, Malki Kawa of First Round Management, said the fighter doesn’t have any serious injuries or ailments and hopes to return at UFC 112 in April.

    Fitch looks for his fourth straight UFC win since a loss to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Saunders, meanwhile, recently rebounded from his first career loss (to Mike Swick) with an impressive KO win over Marcus Davis.

    Penis head texture (keratinization)?

    Sorry for a bit of a graphic topic. Most circumcised males have a keratinized penis head. Which makes it appear dry (you might have little lines or cracks on your head) and a little beat up. this is from the rubbing on your clothing and the exposure to the air. Uncircumcised males have moist skin covering the glans. Does anybody know a way to restore the surface of your head? Ive hear of using udder cream. ANy thing else
