No one expects the Spanish Inquisition, never mind a giant dead blue parrot in London.
Not something you see everyday, but if you were in London recently, you would have seen a 50 foot giant dead parrot being unveiled on London’s South Bank promoting the live broadcast of the final Monty PythonLive stage show on July 20th. It’s been revealed that this famous Norwegian Blue dead parrot was created as a homage of sorts because it was the #1 Monty Python sketch voted on by the nation on British Comedy TV Gold channel. It took a team of three sculptors over two months to create the prop.
Every so often we update an infographic with the latest image dimensions for your Social Media sites. Here is the latest one on record we have. Which will probably change again in 6 months. But, at least for now, you will know all the size dimensions for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube. Enjoy!
Many thanks to the kind people over at Radious for updating this one for everyone.
Granted, this isn’t anything ground-breaking or earth-shattering, but it is nice to know there is a site you can go to that finds the Privacy Settings on all your Social Media accounts so you can make any changes quickly. Sometimes the pages that contain the information on how to adjust your settings can be deeply embedded on a Social Media site and it take a good portion of time to find it.
With AdjustYourPrivacy.com, you can click on to any of the Social Media icons you use, and it will bring you right to that area.
Quick links to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube et al, will certainly help you just get their faster; especially if the situation arises when you have to do it fast because you’ve been compromised.
This is just another great shortcut tip that will help you as the Privacy issues surrounding Social Media just keep getting more pervasive in our lives whenever we are using social networking sites.
Google Fiber just launched today its new 1 gigabit residential fiber network in Kansas City, MO. Internet and HDTV, folks. The network will deliver 1 gigabit connections to homes all over the city. And if you don’t think THAT is fast, then consider it is about 100 times faster than most current residential broadband connections found in the US right now.
This graph really needs no explanation, but it does show how Internet speeds in the US are just not keeping up with all the technology we are throwing on it. We simply need faster speeds to handle the new technology and all the content we want quickly.
Google states that there will not be any overage charges or caps, it will come with 1 terabyte of cloud storage and HDTV. Kansas City residents will have to pay a $300 connection fee to get the service installed in their homes, and the monthly prices are anywhere from the basic with free Internet for nothing per month, just the $300 construction fee (one time or $25/mo for 12 mo), 1 gigabit Internet for $70 per month (waive the $300 connection fee) or you can have the 1 gigabit Internet and tv for $120 a month.
Although if you are looking for Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Walking Dead, AMC is not included on the tv lineup as of yet, along with CNN and ESPN.
The network box is similar to Apple TV and you can use your Nexus 7 tablet as the remote.
Here is the new awesome video:
