Memes are more than just pictures with funny words. They're great procrastination tools, and they can easily brighten your mood almost as quickly as Marcel the Shell. Tons of universities and colleges have their own memes as well.
Yesterday, Adobe released an updated version of the favorite product of the internet age – Photoshop. They've unveiled the beta version of Photoshop CS6, which includes all the new features that will be available when Photoshop CS6 has its full release within the next few months. The best part of this news is that you can download the beta version of CS6 now!
Yes, you read that headline right. The web is going on strike! What? Crazy, I know. The internet isn't shutting down completely, don't worry.

As if the devastation from the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami weren’t enough, Japan continues to deal with threats from a damaged nuclear power plant. Ready for some numbers that will stop you in your tracks? The current death toll stands at 8,100, 12,000 people remain missing and 452,000 have been displaced. These figures, unfortunately, are on the rise.
People can learn a lot about you from your Facebook profile. By considering your favorite movies, pictures, quotes and the things other people write on your wall, it is quite easy to get a good idea of who you are as a person. And knowing that, many of us are extremely careful about what we throw on there.
Schools all over have been experimenting with social media lately - some of them getting into it and some of them encouraging their students to stay out of it. Now Harrisburg University of Science and Tech are blocking all social media from the school's network including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and AIM for a week. They're not the first school to try a move like this, but my question is, is it right?
For every hour a student is in class, he or she should be studying for two. That’s what they say, but is that what you do? The Huffington Post reports that students today are studying drastically less than their predecessors.
Have you heard of "dick slang," the newest dance sensation sweeping the nation? No? Well, watch and be all at once fascinated, turned on and disturbed.
While I love the Internet for giving us Facebook, AIM and the ninja way of downloading music without getting caught, there are still some things about going online and the web that I could do without. I've noticed that since I've been going on the web 24/7 for work and internships, I've been getting angry.
Let’s face it: we all make stupid decisions. Like choosing a fifth over a review session, or bringing that guy home…who stole our iPod in the morning. That’s part of college life... and a big part of what makes it so memorable. But there are some choices that have longer lasting repercussions; things we do now that will haunt us later.
Formspring in its current form has become a place where people can talk sh*t, and do some completely anonymously. Apparently, once you set up a page on there, you can comment on just about anything without ever having to list who you are. Postings range from actual questions (i.e. the original intentions) to vicious and evil comments ("You’re so fat," "No one likes you," "Why are you and your friends so ugly?"). Yeah, it's bad.
(Girls, talking at dinner.) Girl: Today was horrible. Girl 2: Yeah? Girl 1: I had the worst headache. It was so bad, I couldn't pee.
Sarabeth here. But only for a short time, because I figured I could have my other half, Matt, write this week's article. I thought it'd be a fun change of pace for those who ever wondered what things were like from his point of view. I already know how great and wonderful he is, but I think it's important for other girls out there to see that there are really good guys to be had and when it comes to serious relationships, guys really aren't that different from us.
Just recently, I heard through the grape-vine about a little video-chat sensation called Chatroulette. Now, we have all heard of Skype, a video chat used to communicate with friends for free. But creators of Chatroulette decided to float to the rebellious side of things and create a video chat for strangers
So according to a recent study, the Internet is making us depressed. While the scientists behind the study link depression to the amount of time spent in a virtual world, I have a few of my own theories as to why the Internet is making us all very, very sad.
I like gossip. You know, the pretty harmless kind: who hooked up with who at that party last week, who has a crush on who, who was spotted doing the walk of shame... Little tidbits that don't really matter. And really, who doesn't like that stuff?
Dear Tuffy Luv, I broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years about a month ago. We chat a few times a week and haven't fought since the break up. But I have a favor to ask of him, and I know it's gonna hurt him because he'll think I don't trust him. I need him to erase the pictures I sent him while we were dating.
We live, breathe and flirt in a world of high-tech, digital romance. And I can’t say with a straight face that I am not a user and abuser of texting/IMing/FB chatting when it comes to communicating with members of the opposite sex. But there are some instances where no Tweet can do justice to a face-to-face interaction when you’re wheeling and dealing in the game of love.
Thanksgiving gets increasingly more stressful for me every single year. If I'm not having nightmares about the stuffing running out before it gets passed to me, then I'm biting my nails over the fact that I'll have to explain my career to my family sixteen times.
Imagine that you move into your new dorm room only to find that your internet connection isn’t working. Do you feel a little frustrated, mildly anxious, or totally panicked? If you chose Option C, you might just be an internet addict. Don’t laugh—a growing number of doctors believe that internet addiction is a serious problem.
Dear Internet, Happy (alleged) Birthday! I hope this letter finds you well and spyware free. It’s been 40 years since you first transferred data between computers and look how far you’ve come! I would like to take this time to tell you how much I cherish you, Internet.
I am, without a doubt, addicted to technology. I spend 10 hours a day in front of my computer and the minute I step away, I'm checking my email/Facebook/Twitter/IMs/stock market reports from my iPhone. (Note: stock market reports are a real downer these days.)
In this digital age, we are never apart from the ones we love, at least not for too long. With smart phones, texting, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Skype, and SMS updates, we are just a press of a button away. We are closer to other people than we have ever been before. Even long distance relationships don’t seem that long-distance anymore.
We have a lot of freedom here in the wonderful U.S.A. Freedom that people around the world would die for. Freedom that people around the world do die for. But do we appreciate that freedom? Not as much as we should. In fact, being that we've been raised to be independent and fearless females, there are a lot of freedoms we have that we don't recognize often enough.
