Should You Accept Mom & Dad’s Facebook Friend Request?

Posted on December 10, 2010. Filed under: Interesting News Articles |

No! Sorry, that was my instantaneous response. The above question presents quite the quandary, but, luckily, Mike Newman and Cool Materialhave provided us all with this nifty flowchart.

Last we heard, around 48% of parents friend their kids on Facebook. That makes sense — parents love stalking, er, keeping tabs on their pride and joy. But does that mean you have to accept said request — especially if you’re prone to posting embarrassing pics (don’t say we didn’t warn you)?

Try out the chart below to see whether you should just avoid, avoid, avoid, or welcome Mom and Dad into your Facebook realm with open arms (or at least a few profile privacy tweaks).

iPad 2 will have two cameras

Posted on December 10, 2010. Filed under: Interesting News Articles |

The next iteration of Apple’s iPad might have a front and a rear-facing camera, Reuters reports, citing multiple sources.

The info originates from four component suppliers for the iPad that are preparing for a new round of production in the first quarter of 2011. Two of them merely say they’ll be producing the same components as in the original iPad. One claims that a new version of iPad is coming, with front and rear-facing cameras, while another source says the iPad 2 will be slimmer and lighter, with a better resolution display,

All these predictions are essentially no-brainers, especially the camera, which is already present in most iPad competitors; not including the camera in iPad 2 would be a big surprise from Apple.

However, with the tablet race heating up – the market is expected to quadruple by 2012 – Apple might want to surprise us with an unexpected feature or two for the next iPad if it wants to keep its lead ahead of the competition.
