Twitter has suffered a massive loss in its first published financial results since the social networks highly anticipated US stock market debut last year, and though the company might not have been surprised, punters took a different view, with shares dropping almost 25 percent in value.
Twitter told shareholders it lost $US511 million/$AU573 million in the last three months of last year, that’s despite a doubling of revenue from 12 months ago to a better-than-expected $US243 million/$AU273 Million.
Financials aren’t the only woes the micro-blog are suffering, Twitter seems to be testing a new heavier design and it’s users haven’t been receptive of the changes. The new layout is reported to include a look described by many as a cross between Facebook and Google plus. Format changes in the past – including their most recent small change – have upset a bunch of users :: Read the full article »»»»

This might come as a surprise to regular readers: We Don’t Exist!? We’re ghost writers/bloggers, we pen for people who have either no inclination or time to express themselves, and we do it anonymously – well, we did, anonymity just flew out the window – Not copping kudos or credit doesn’t bother us… ‘it’s a pleasure’
Our people are generally not tech-savvy – that’s where we come in – they are however a lovely bunch and seriously much-loved. From our Mad Hatter, our Alt-model through to our Brain Doctor, they all rely on us getting their word out: As our tagline says, “Blogging, it’s personal…” and for us it truly is.
Anyhoo, we’ve just taken a survey via Intel and it turns out our technology is stuck in 2005, which presents a problem – as previously mentioned – we profess to our much-loved clients that we’re not only clever, we’re at the cutting edge of tech, oops, we thought we were. We’d love to drag our saggies back into 2013, but we need your help, please click on this link: https://t.co/NCTbjOo3Wi and vote to get us up-to-date [it’s painless, and the Intel site is too cute for words]

Ask who invented the Internet and you’ll spark off an argument with everyone championed from DARPA to Nikola Tesla. However, two Stanford scientists claim that the inventor may have had six legs, antennae and a taste for disrupting picnics.
Professor of biology Deborah Gordon and professor of computer science Balaji Prabhakar say that red harvester ants – Pogonomyrmex barbatus – use the same Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in foraging that the internet uses to manage data transmissions – making a sort of “Anternet.”
A common image of an ant colony is that it’s the ultimate dictatorship, with each ant condemned to a life of total regimentation. It’s nice metaphor, but it’s actually false. In fact, in an ant colony, no one is in charge.
True, there’s a queen, but she doesn’t do anything except lay eggs. As to the rest of the ants, no one makes decisions, no one tells anyone else what to do and no one supervises the work. This raises the question, how does anyone know what to do? :: Read the full article »»»»
