If you haven't heard, Facebook is now a public company. That means that the experience has, and will continue to change into eternity now that the company has to turn a profit to satisfy shareholders.

Otherwise, the... Read more...

Apple refuses to sell me a computer despite having $1250 upfront.As... Read more...
