Facebook’s Vine Whine

Twitter's new Vine social video service, a "video Instagram" of sorts for sharing six second blasts of video content, has fallen afoul of Facebook, with users blocked from raiding their Facebook friends for new contacts. Vine, which launched as a free iOS app yesterday, attempts to kickstart the sharing process by pulling in other users from Twitter and Facebook accounts; however, shortly after the app went live, those trying to import contacts from Facebook were faced with a message that the functionality had been disabled.

Levine: BioShock Infinite won’t have a multiplayer mode

Levine: BioShock Infinite won’t have a multiplayer mode

These days, it seems like publishers are all about multiplayer. They're sticking multiplayer in where it doesn't belong (we're looking at you, Dead Space and God of War) simply because they think a game won't sell as well without it. It's been a major sticking point for a lot of gamers who don't want to see single player modes become less important, but thankfully, not all publishers and developers have been bitten by the multiplayer bug.

Microsoft Vine: “It’s time to get into the bunker”

Microsoft have launched a new service which aims to keep groups of friends and family updated and located during periods of crisis.  Eighteen months in development, Microsoft Vine is a system that integrates local news with status updates from Facebook, presented in a desktop client, by text message or by email.  The concept is that local emergencies can be quickly spotted and then group-wide alerts sent out, with users "checking in" to report that they're safe.

Cortana on Windows 10 will support 6 more countries soon

Windows 10 is bringing Cortana, but only for some users.

Try not to dance as DJ spins a set using Apple Watch

Try not to dance as DJ spins a set using Apple Watch

Algoriddim's DJ app, Djay has finally accomplished the insurmountable--making it possible to DJ from a smartwatch and to cool look while doing it. Djay introduced Apple Watch integration to its iOS app practically as soon as Apple Watch was released. The thought of DJing on a watch face sounds impractical, but as an auxiliary tool in a skilled DJ's arsenal, it's just another way to manipulate sound. In the video below, you can see a DJ control his set from Apple Watch. Like a cowbell mounted on a drum kit, it looks cool, but overuse can lead to an obnoxious set.

This One Photo: Australia’s aurora captured in space

A fantastic photo (and short video) of the Aurora Australis are captured by NASA astronaut Terry Virts. "Flying away from one of the most incredible auroras I've seen," said Virts, "just west of Australia." In addition to capturing the photo you're about to see full size, Virts also captured a Vine. That means he captured one of the most fantastical visions most humans on Earth will never see from his position with a camera that then bashed the video down to miniature size in order for us normal citizens to be able to see, over and over again.

Don’t worry Facebook, you’re still down with the kids

Don’t worry Facebook, you’re still down with the kids

Facebook may be regularly plagued with ominous predictions that teens with short attention spans have moved on to brighter social networks, but according to new research there's still life in Zuckerberg's site yet. The Pew Research Center prized teenagers away from their smartphones to ask them which social sites and apps they frequent, and while Facebook may have been branded passé by some, it's still the most-used among the 13-17 demographic. That's no small audience, either, with 24-percent of teenagers telling the research firm that they are "almost constantly" online.
