5 great content discovery sites which aren't Digg

Despite what you may have heard in the last two weeks, Digg is not dead. It is, however, a very different service than when it started. What used to be a great place to find interesting links and hilarious commentary has become, for almost all intents and purposes, a Twitter clone.

Off the clock: The Ultimate Porn Surfing Firefox Add-ons

A lot of people use the Internet to find porn. A lot of people use Firefox (go download Firefox 3.6!) In fact, I'd go as far to suggest that porn surfers -- or at least the search for naughty, illicit, adult-only material -- account for Firefox's biggest market demographic. The 'young' Internet -- blogs, social networks, porn -- is predominantly ruled by the spotty teenagers of the browser...

I'm hard-pushed to...
