It's been less than a year since Facebook implemented its online gift giving system, which allows Facebook users to purchase and send physical gifts to their friends and family on the social networking site.

According to TechCrunch, 10 percent of the U.S. Facebook population will see a redesigned version of the Gifts page immediately, while the other 90 percent will start to see it in the next few weeks.

Otherwise, the... Read more...

As the decade winds down, it's fun to look back and think just how different our world is now compared to this time in 1999. One of the easiest ways to see just how drastic the chances have been is to look at Amazon, which just put out some rather staggering fun facts. Without a doubt, the company's own hardware device (the Kindle) was its most popular gift, and just ten years ago e-reading devices were but a pipe dream in some back corner lab that probably wasn't even being taken seriously. The Kindle became the company's most gifted item ever (yes, ever!) this Christmas, and what's crazy is that... Read more...
