8 reasons to love furries, and more, on Linkbait Generator

I'm going to file this one under "social commentary", actually. Linkbait Generator is a pretty interesting tool I found over at the always-interesting MakeUseOf. It does one thing, and does it quite well: generate titles for blog posts that will probably get clicks. For some reason, people seem to be obsessed with lists. If you go to Digg's "Popular" page, you are sure to find at least one...

And now they've got an iPhone app that's even better! It's called Favit and its extremely simple UI delivers the laughs directly to your face, with no clutter involved.

Kanye interrupts Arrington at TechCrunch50

We simply couldn't resist. (In case you didn't catch Kanye West's antics at the Video Music Awards this weekend, here's some context.)...

How to opt out of Google and protect your privacy: Move to remote village

Google may be the top search engine in the world, and it may collect a lot of data about you if you use its email, chat, photo, or video services. Heck, even if you've avoided every Google product, Google probably still knows a few things about you if you've ever done anything that might have possibly left a trail on the web. But America's finest news source, The Onion, lets us know that Google...

Microsoft offers a *cough* totally unbiased comparison of the Big 3 browsers

Oh Microsoft, you and your wacky propoganda! Yes, we know that Internet Explorer 8 isn't the same steaming pile of dung that past versions have been. Yes, we know it has some neat features like accelerators and InPrivate filtering. But we really had no idea that you had such a great sense of humor! If you haven't seen the now infamous chart (and you likely have, thanks to Reddit), it's well...

Free Software Foundation Hiring

Have a doctorate? Hate web design, razors, soap and capitalism? Able to get by in Boston on $53,849 a year? You may be in luck. The Free Software Foundation is hiring a Campaigns Manager! According to the FSF's own site, "The campaigns manager implements the FSF communications strategy and works as part of a team to develop and implement issue campaigns and community resources, acting as a...

DrunkTwt: Tweeting while intoxicated

"Don't drink and tweet" is probably some of the best Twitter advice I can give you. But if you must post to Twitter while intoxicated, at least try to do it from DrunkTwt. DrunkTwt posts your intoxicated Twitter ramblings anonymously, using an enormous text field that you don't have to be at all sober to click on. Once your update is entered, it'll show up in DrunkTwt's Twitter stream, which you...

Full power to the deflector shields! Sophos releases Klingon Antivirus

One thing that I always like to see in a corporate entity is the ability to have a little fun from time to time. If I was going to give an award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Software Vendor," it would go to antivirus developer Sophos, hands down. Why? For their brand-new Klingon antivirus application. The program is no joke - it's real Sophos AV, but it may not be a real benefit for you if...

Broken Picture Telephone - Time Waster

Remember that kids' game, Telephone? You tell something to someone, who tells it to someone else, and so on. The message gets repeated incorrectly, and the person at the end of the line hears something completely different from the original message. Well, Broken Picture Telephone is like that, but online and with pictures. Words and drawings alternate, which adds even more possibility for error...

Weird Wednesday: Real websites making fake stuff

Until we can finally allow robots to craft everything via iPhone CAD/CAM apps, you'll have to get your fix of fake tombstones and dress-up robots online. Here's a roundup of some helpful tools -- maybe. Honestly, several are horrendous to use. Others are merely fugly. One frightened my hamster. Still, if you are looking for a way to express yourself on the cover of TIME magazine, this may be...

Strewth! YouTube's Monty Python channel gets official

Apparently fed up with horrid, low-quality ripoffs of their work being posted to YouTube, Monty Python has decided it's time to act. They're fighting back by uploading high-quality videos straight from their private vault. Though there are currently only two dozen clips available, many have been uploaded recently. It's likely only a matter of time before favorites like the Cheese Shop, Fish...

How we know that Matrix doesn't run on Windows XP

So here's the thing about the advanced computer systems you see in movies like Terminator or The Matrix: They don't crash. They don't ask you to send error reports. And they don't bog down after you've been using them for a few months and the registry is filled with gunk from programs you've installed, uninstalled, and forgotten all about. On the other hand, it'd be kind of funny if they did....

Fonts Personified: Ever wondered what Wingdings would look like?

See more funny videos and funny pictures at CollegeHumor. Have you ever wondered what Comic Sans, Times New Romans, or Futura fonts would look, sound, and act like if they were people? Yeah, neither have we. But after watching the video above, we can't believe the thought had never occurred to us. This video from College Humor probably qualifies as the funniest thing we've ever seen. At least...

When Twitter is Down, a single-serving site seems like a good idea

In the tradition of humorous single-serving site status checkers like istwitterdown.com and downforeveryoneorjustme.com comes a new entry with none of the utility of the others, but about fifty times the comedic value. When Twitter is Down is a site by Adam "lonelysandwich" Lisagor, a well-known Twitter user and one of the hosts of the You Look Nice Today podcast. Sandwich gathered up some of...

Innocent Spam: Displeased with the measurement of your Willy?

Check the junk folder of your email service, and we're guessing you'll find hundreds of messages offering to enhance various body parts, decrease others, or ask for your help withdrawing large sums of money from a bank account. But what if you're simply misreading all of these messages? What if you're the one with the dirty mind, not the marketers? Yeah, we're pretty sure that's not the case,...
