Why is laundry only a mother’s job?

by on Feb.27, 2016, under Film & TV

A new laundry detergent ad by Ariel India that raises questions on how unequal gender roles are passed down across generations is getting attention across the Internet. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg shared the commercial on her Facebook page and praised it for “changing stereotypes and showing that a more equal world would be a better world for all of us.”

Let's All Annoy Facebook

 

How to annoy the employees of FACEBOOK: A step-by-step tutorial.

1. Open this site:

https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=data_requests

2. Enter your personal information

3. Make a reference to the following law:

“Section 4 DPA + Art. 12 Directive 95/46/EG”

DPA is a british law called “Data Protection Act” from 1988

4. Click on SEND

 

FACEBOOK HAS TO send your data within 40 days as this is your personal right following Art. 12 fromt he European Data Protection Directive. You will most likely find out that FACEBOOK knows more than it should! And you’ll also see that FACEBOOK doesn’t delete your data the way it should! And now to the annoying part: They will have to send you a CD-ROM with your data on it. Imagine them burning billions of CDs…

Facial Profiler

by on Dec.26, 2009, under Products

In an effort to somehow tie in the idea of Coke Zero tasting the same as Coke (no, it doesn’t), the Atlanta soft drink company has released their Facial Profiler (sounds like a version of this show with a happy ending?). The premise is: If Coke Zero tastes identical to Coke, could there be people out there that are identical to you?

Ok, it’s a stretch. And a transparent ploy to gain Facebook fans and traffic (the same way people were getting Simpsonized before their movie came out). But, hey, we’ll bite. Why not…

Oh, wait…your site is down again:

Twapple?

by on May.06, 2009, under Internet, Services

Facebook tried to buy Twitter. Google and Microsoft have been giving the red-hot Internet-messaging startup the eye. But we hear it’s Apple that’s closest to sealing a deal, possibly for as much as $700 million.

A source who’s plugged into the Valley’s deal scene and has been recruited by Apple for a senior position says Apple and Twitter are in serious negotiations, with the goal of unveiling a deal by June 8, when Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference launches in San Jose.

Twitter turned down a $500 million offer in cash and stock from Facebook, in part because Twitter’s investors couldn’t agree on whether Facebook’s stock was worth as much as Facebook said it was. But Apple could easily pay cash. A source familiar with the thinking of Twitter’s board says the company would be hard-pressed to refuse an all-cash offer in the range of $700 million. (Is Twitter really worth that? Since it’s business is nothing but a fantasy at this point, any valuation, high or low, is a matter of make-believe.)
