HP joins that cloud thing that everyone is talking about [VIDEO]

I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to having 5G, in fact all the Gs, available on the cloud.

I mean, every second person you talk to is building something on the cloud, putting something on the cloud or building their own private cloud, which is very Rolling Stones, if you think about it.

Ah, it's good to be Baratunde Thurston.

Friendster spoof likens the barren social media site to a lost civilisation.

According to this satirical video from The Onion, archaeologists have found 'ruins' of a lost internet civilisation called Friendster. You can imagine how the owners of MySpace, Facebook and (still revenue-less) Twitter might not find this as funny as the rest of us.
