*It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what sent the Planet Hollywood audience at The Jacksons show in Las Vegas into frenzy so quickly. At the time of this writing, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon were in the second week of a 40-date show of their RockTellz & CockTails residency.

It could’ve been the pose each brother struck while standing in silhouetted silence behind the sheer,  picturesque screen as seen in the picture below. Or the dramatic thump that landed on our ears as each step lit up when the brothers’ descended in unison.

Then again, maybe it was that “Superhero” stance that Jermaine does. You know – the one with the clinched fist, arm outstretched and slightly raised, which happens instantaneously when that awesome hook to “Can You Feel It?” comes on! Yeah, that one in the picture directly below. Continue reading

woman-embarrassed_400x295_40*Uh boy. You have to wonder sometimes: What is it going to take for some of us to get it through our heads that if we don’t want to live with the threat of our intimate photos and videos being put on blast, there’s only one solution: stop posing for them.

Or at least make sure we have personally erased them from the phone before we trade it in!

Too bad one Los Angeles woman neglected to do this. Now she has put her humiliation aside long enough to file a lawsuit; in which she claims a Sprint employee found two pictures of her engaged in sex and used the Facebook app on her phone to upload them; making them visible to her family, friends and co-workers.

Oh man! Continue reading

Secure Sockets Layers, and more recently, Transport Layer Security protocols have protected web users for years by creating a digital secure handshake to identify and encrypt data from the browser to the secure end site.

Security Tech Firm Strongly Encourage’s User’s to Update Apple’s iOS 7 Software Asap!

ios-devices*On the one hand, the growing technology movement has enabled us to have lives that are much more convenient. We can reach someone across the world at lightening speed via instant message, Skype, Face Time and the like; but let’s face it (no pun intended) on the other hand, the price we pay for these conveniences is extremely high.

Just like someone who feels the painstaking paranoia of constantly looking over your shoulder to see if you’re being followed, technology makes us extremely vulnerable to predators if we neglect to take steps that lead to our successful security.

This means constantly updating our equipment to prevent an intrusion. Hey anything-Apple mobile device users, you might want to pay attention starting now. Continue reading

Good news: There’s an app for that!

Of course you’ll need a car…with a trunk. Continue reading
