In the last month, the world's largest social network has lost 6 million US visitors, a 4 per cent fall, according to analysis firm SocialBakers..."
"Xbox Next isn’t going to be cheap, as we have been telling you for some time now. When it arrives on dealer shelves in November, sources tell us that it is going to carry a $499 price tag. Don’t expect the PlayStation 4 to be that much cheaper, if at all.

"Scientist at Cornell University have been showing the potential for 3D printers by creating a replacement ear using a 3D printer and an injection of living cells...

Apparently if you spend all night on the site, your sperm count drops and you will not be able to inconsiderately sire a brood of screaming babies that will ultimately lead to the end of the world thanks overpopulation.

"Need more proof that the PC market is in trouble? Bellwether Intel has posted some rather lackluster results, disappointing investors, but still managing to beat analyst forecasts.

"A five year old kid was delivered some hardcore porn this Christmas and apparently his parents have written a stiff letter to Santa. While it does not surprise us that a geriatric bloke with a beard who likes small children sitting on his knee might try and groom a five year old, according to 9News the kids parents were not impressed. The kid found photos of porn on his 3DS console he received for his Christmas present this year. Without killing the illusion that Santa delivered the toy to the kid, it appears that the console was purchased from Gamestop and was pre-owned..."
