Is it bad to have or share your information on the internet?

Whenever I get a phone call from an unknown number, I immediately plug it into Google and about 80% of the time, get an answer as to who called. I also tend to search on names, addresses or companies to find out more about them before I do business with them. That brings me to my own information.

Popcorn Hour! Watch your videos or downloaded content on your TV!

So a friend introduced me to "PopcornHour" late last year, and I ordered one. It took a couple of months to get because they were being manufactured. Once I got it, it opened a whole new world to me… Basically, PopcornHour is a "networked media tank".

AfriCam… WOW!

It’s not often that I’m really amazed by technology. And especially not a WEBCAM! But in this case… WOW. This is a LIVE webcam from Nkorho, Africa. They are using an EverFocus camera that will automatically follow the movements of animals in the shot, or, if there are no animals, it will scan the area until it finds something. Also, it zooms in (A LOT!) to get AMAZING video of real African animals. If the image gets boring, the camera will pan back and scan the area for …
