House on Holiday Hill

Posted by    |    December 21st, 2011 at 6:00 am

WARNING: Flashing lights, and lots of them.

‘Tis the holiday season; the period for Christmas lights and inflatable yard décor. In this video, a Utah homeowner takes decorating to a whole new level with a musical light show…on a house. I’m thinking this person has too much free time on his or her hands. Timed perfectly to the song rhythm, this yard wins ‘Most Entrancing Of the Season’ with 45,000 lights brightening up the night all Christmas long.

Thanks to this video, I now feel like a total Christmas decoration slacker. Does lighting a Christmas-scented candle count?

Christmas Mobile Mobile

I don’t know about you, but when I get a new cell phone, the old one goes straight into a box in the back of my closet. I do not recycle them.  I do not donate them. To be completely honest, I doubt I’ve ever looked at them again.

However, this company had a rather creative idea for their old phones. Programmed to the tune of “Carol of the Bells,” this mobile chandelier greets guests waiting in the lobby of a London company.

To add another element of awesomeness to this invention, anyone can go online and create their own mobile jingle to play through the chandelier. All you need is a keyboard and a web browser.

“Take this Lollipop”: A Funny Yet A Real Potential Threat In Today’s World

The Internet is an open form that allows anyone and everyone to access information from sites dedicated to all areas of interest.

However, there are ways of “hiding” information from those outside our social groups.

Facebook, Twitter, and many other social media and blog sites provide users with an option to allow their sites to be viewed privately or publicly.

Despite what many people may think, privacy settings online don’t necessarily ensure you full privacy from the public.

There are ways that the private information you post on the Internet could still be reached by other Internet users. Not only could they find out your friends names, but your location, phone number, and some times bank information.

Nothing is really ever private with concern to the World Wide Web.

Take This Lollipop…for example.

Watch this video and see how information posted on social sites could easily fall into the hands of someone with bad intentions. (And, also, enjoy the reaction from Anthony while he watches. Good stuff.)

Regardless of how public or private you make your content; everything you post will forever be on the Internet, whether you like it or not. Unfortunately, that is a reality we all have to face in today’s technological world.

Word to the wise: If it’s information that you wouldn’t want your mom knowing, it’s best not to publish it online for chance it might just come back to haunt you in the future.
