Instacane Features Sandy Images


Peter Ng of Ricochet Media and Facebook engineer Chris Ackermann grabbed photos that were tagged either #Sandy or #Hurricane. They then created the site Instacane. It is an amazing site and we expect that they will continue to add to it in the weeks to come. And, by the way, how can you not feel the utmost compassion for what they are going through? If you can spare it, please use your phone to text the Red Cross at 90999 to make a $10.00 donation or contact the Red Cross to volunteer and find other ways you can be of assistance.

iPad and iPad mini to Finally Arrive


While Apple finally unveiled both the iPad mini and the 4th generation of iPad, it remains to be seen how well they deliver as the mini white has already sold out. Those who pre-ordered from the Online Store will undoubtedly see a delay and those who still want them are camping out at Apple's retail shops. Those who get them in their eager little hands will have at least four days of play before standing in line at their local Polling Place.

Have Some Twitter Political Index Fun


With only a week to go, we have to admit we will be glad when the election is over. We can get away from annoying commercials and Super PAC offerings, not to mention polls that can reflect whichever political side of the fence you choose. We do have a tendency to peek at Twitter's Political Index that reflects the popularity of the two highest office contenders. It updates daily and we expect there some bias here because of the age range of tweeters and that while Romney has 1.6 million followers, Prez Obama has ten million of them.

Boxee TV To Replace Set Top Box


Boxee has dispensed with their old set top device and replaced it with Boxee TV. The device allows HDTV viewing of the major networks and many other channels with antenna or unencrypted basic cable. Two tuners means that you can watch one movie/program while recording on another. Their No Limits plan means that you can record all you want in a cloud-based DVR and watch when it is convenient on your laptop, tablet or TV.

As a bonus, it will come pre-installed with apps like Netflix, Pandora and YouTube with more to come in the future. It is due out in November with a $99.00 price for the box and a $14.99 monthly subscription rate.
