Im not going to lie, I have no clue what Instagram is. I may need to join the 10 million new users of Instagram. Shortly after Facebook's billion dollar purchase and Android integration Instagram jumped from 30 million to 40 million users in just ten days.

Amazon is making it very difficult for Best Buy to survive. Best Buy has released the list of 50 US stores that will be shut down this year. At least the Ann Arbor location is not one that will be closing.

Never reveal your Facebook password, even to potential employers. With Facebook being such a popular social network, companies have increasingly been asking workers and potential employees for access to their Facebook accounts. Companies do not care about violating Facebook's guidelines and asking for this private information can lead to additional legal issues. Lawmakers are even taking a stance by creating a bill that would prevent employers from asking a job applicant's password on Facebook and other social networks.

+Bud Gibson you may not be getting your iPad fully charged even if it says you are. Researchers say that the charging indicator is wrong and is not fully charged when it shows it is 100% fully charged. Users are not actually getting maximum running time due to the mathematically incorrect charging indicator. It could take up to an additional 2 hours to fully charge your iPad even when the on-screen display says you are at 100%.

For anyone looking to get an iPhone and can't afford it, Target has lowered the price of the iPhone 4 and 4s by $25. You will still be required to sign up for a two year contract but if you are planning on getting the iPhone you might as well save $25 by getting it from Target rather than getting it from the Apple Store, carrier Web site, or even Wal-Mart.

"It's do or die time for RIM. The company has not had a hit product in some time. And it's been steadily losing market share to rivals Apple and Google." In an attempt to release a new software to compete with Apple and Google, RIM (Research In Motion) plans to give 2,000 devices using BlackBerry 10 to software developers in order to create new apps for the upcoming devices using the new software. The new software update is set to be introduced later this year.

We all know the dangers of texting and driving, but what about tweeting and driving...during a NASCAR race! Driver Brad Keselowski posted a status update via twitter from his car during the Daytona 500 last week. As a safety vehicle explosion halted the race, Keselowski took the time to reach out to his 85,000 Twitter followers. In less than two hours he gained more than 100,000 followers who were eager to see what had been trending in the sports "Twittershere."

If you are a loud cell phone talker watch out for guys like this. In order to have a quite bus ride, a Philadelphia man jams and interrupts cell phone calls with a handheld device. A simple request to lower your volume is not enough, he is "taking the law into his own hands" to reduce loud cell phone talkers on his trip to and from work.

After just over three and a half years of existence, Apple's App Store has reached 25 billion downloads. The person who downloaded the 25 billionth app will be receiving a $10,000 iTunes gift card. Might be hard to spend $10,000 worth in iTunes apps/music but it is indeed a great gift for one lucky recipient.
