A friend of mine -- we'll call him Rich -- was complaining today that he can't edit the contacts on his iPhone. That ever since he upgraded to iOS 5, the Edit button in the top-right corner of the Phone or Contacts app went missing. After a quick search through Apple's forums, I found the cause.… Read more
It's hard not to be affected by an article titled "Kids Raped, Sodomized on Facebook Pages," the first of a four-part WND series about child porn and Facebook.
The article alleges that the blog "located dozens of child porn images after 'friending' many likely pedophiles and predators who trade thousands of pornographic photos on the social network."
Unlike legal "adult pornography," child porn depicts sexual exploitation of children, in some cases very young children. Child porn is illegal in the United States and many other countries. Anyone who knowingly produces, transmits, stores, or … Read more
It's inevitable when you're adopted that, at some point in your life, you'll try and find out as much as you can about your birth parents -- who they might have been, who they might have become.
For software salesman Steve Carter, 35, that time seems to have come when he decided to have kids of his own.
He knew he'd been adopted from an orphanage in Honolulu when he was 4. As he thought more about his past, he saw the story of Carlina White, who went on a missing-children site and discovered she had … Read more

Love is in the air this week. You can tell by the smell of overpriced roses, highly inflated balloons, and restaurant servers who are in the gym early, training to turn tables over four times in a night.
How touching, then, that Luke DuBois, a digital-media professor at NYU-Poly, has used his vast and loving skills to try to bring together those who seek true love on Craigslist's "Missed Connections."
At LukeDubois.com/missed, you are offered hope if you failed to get the phone number or other personal details of someone who stared a little too long at you in your local library or hookah lounge.
DuBois told The Brooklyn Paper that his site uses an algorithm that attempts to find similar words used in different Missed Connections posts in the very same city.
It does sound so much more ingenious than the methods of that slightly wordy lady on "The Millionaire Matchmaker."… Read more
When you get a chance to interview Kermit the Frog, you don't pass it up.
Kermit has been the most famous frog in the world for decades. And with the success of his new film, "The Muppets," which has already earned $56 million domestically, he's been making the rounds, sharing his thoughts on everything from meeting presidents to why he never seems to age to what it's like to work alongside his girlfriend, Miss Piggy.
But this is CNET. We wanted Kermit to talk about iPhones. And Twitter. Technology, in other words. We couldn't get the frog who has sung so eloquently about rainbows to tell us how he feels about the most famous double rainbow in the world, or about how often Miss Piggy texts him, but he did dish about his preference for Apple's devices. … Read more

If you were among those who bet your office mates that Apple wouldn't come out with an iPhone 5 today, congratulations, give yourself a high five, you win. But if you were on the losing side of that bet and were sure Apple would unveil a truly new iPhone with a new chassis and a number 5 in the name somewhere, you're probably shaking your head a little.

Back on August 31, CNET broke the story that an unreleased iPhone went missing in a bar and that Apple was doing its darnedest to track it down, with a little help from the San Francisco police. While the prototype has yet to turn up, Conan O'Brien, who's poked a little fun at Apple in the past, has a put together a mock Apple ad called "Apple wants its lost iPhone 5" in which Apple's heavy-handed, take-no-prisoners style is satirized with lines like, "We will find this person and redefine the world of genital torture."
