Facebook has a creepy new feature called "Nearby Friends." It allows you to see when your Facebook buddies are nearby, in real life, because it tracks the location of everybody who uses the feature AT ALL TIMES. Does anybody out there want such a feature?
Facebook users will soon be able to receive notices on their mobile app when they’re near friends, signaling an effort by the online social network to play a bigger role in real-world interactions.

“This is a known challenge to fingerprint-sensing technology, and these are some of the top researchers in the world. But this is not a scalable exploit. It’s not something most people should worry about.”

You know you should set up 2-step authentication on Google, Apple services, Facebook, Twitter and everything else you can on the web. But it's a pain, and it takes time. Well, here's a guide I put together to help get you started and make the process easier. Take a look...
The "Heartbleed" bug, an encryption flaw that could expose usernames and passwords stored on about two-thirds of Internet servers, has given the Web-surfing world cause for concern and plenty of password changes. But there's another step you should always take where possible to keep yourself safe online: two-step verification.

Anyone out there interested in buying an Amazon smartphone -- that features eye-ball tracking and a glasses-free 3D display?
The retailer has plans to announce the phone in June and to begin shipping by the end of September, according to people briefed on the company's plans.

Dropbox is more than just a place to store stuff -- it's now also beautiful apps like Carousel, which made its debut yesterday. Here are my first impressions of the app, which I think is a definite download for Dropbox users...
If you use Dropbox and have an iPhone or an Android phone, there's a new app you'll want to download called Carousel. The reason? It's a far better way to look at the photos and video you have stored in your Dropbox account.
