Burger King Twitter Account Hacked // via mashable.com


Mcdonalds-burgerking-on-twitter1

Hackers took over Burger King’s Twitter account on Monday.

The cyber tricksters changed the fast food company’s avatar and name to “McDonalds” and sent a McFlurry of questionable and offensive tweets. The Twitter mishap isn’t all bad news for Burger King though — the account added 5,000 new followers in the first 30 minutes since the hackers took over.

Mashable has reached out to the company and will update this post with any response.

UPDATE : As of 1:15 p.m. EST, it appears Twitter has suspended the @BurgerKing account.

The Tangled Web of Lawsuits in Mobile [INFOGRAPHIC]


Who’s suing whom in the mobile industry? It can be a tough question to answer, even if you’re closely following all the lawsuits that have been thrown around in the last couple of years.

Nokia sued Apple and vice versa, with both companies claiming the other was infringing on its patents. Both companies have also slapped other companies with lawsuits, again mostly over patent infringement or price fixing. Add other IT giants, such as Kodak, RIM, HTC, Google (Google), Sony Ericcson and LG into the mix, and soon it’ll feel like everyone is suing everyone else.

Name: Sparrow

Quick Pitch: Sparrow is a minimalist mail application for Mac. It was designed to keep things simple and efficient. No fancy stuff here — just your mail and nothing else.

Genius Idea: E-mail has become such a large part of our lives that everyone from Google (Google) to individual developers are looking to build the best solution for faster, better e-mail management. Yet all of the bright new features sometimes make our e-mail inboxes more complex (and sometimes slower) than ever. But not Sparrow.

The free Mac desktop client for Gmail (Gmail) approaches e-mail with Tweetie (tweetie)-like finesse and simplicity. If anything, Sparrow feels like a mobile e-mail client optimized for your desktop, which means it eliminates the chaff to focus on the wheat: exchanging e-mail. Sigue leyendo

With Less than 50% Market Share, IE Is Now Losing the Browser Wars


Jolie O’Dell http://mashable.com

According to data from StatCounter, Internet Explorer has dipped below the 50%-mark in its global share of the Internet browser market.

StatCounter shows IE at 51.34% of the market in August 2010; by the end of September, IE was holding on to just 49.87% of the browser market. The browser also shows a drop of nearly 10% year over year.

This is the first time IE has fallen below the halfway point in market share, and from where we sit, the glass is looking half empty.

These losses come in the face of steady growth from Firefox (Firefox) over the past several years and speedy gains by Chrome (Chrome) in recent months.

During the same month that IE sank to its all-time low, Firefox grew by about half a percent to 31.5%, while Chrome added almost a full percentage point to its share of the market.

10 Dead Simple Gmail Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts


Gmail can be tweaked almost endlessly with various Firefox and Chrome extensions, and offers some pretty nifty Labs options too. However, we’ve taken a look at some simple tips, tricks, tweaks and shortcuts you can use without going down the plugin or experimental route.

These 10 features will help you get so much more out of the webmail service, from an enhanced chat experience, to smarter filters, to offline access.

Have a read through now and let us know any neat Gmail (Gmail) hints you’d like to share in the comments box below.


1. Add Emphasis in Chat


Gmail’s instant messaging Chat function is one of the more basic options around, but there are a few bits of formatting you can use to add nuance to your online communication.

To bold a word, asterisk it like this: *Mashable (Mashable)*

To add italics, just underscore before and after the word like this: _Mashable_

And to strike a word through, add hyphens before and after like so: -Mashable-


2. Customize Your Web Clips


You’ve no doubt noticed the “Web Clips” line of text that appears above your Gmail inbox which contains news, blog posts, ads and other info. But did you know you can personalize it to make it more relevant to you?

Simply go to “Settings” on the top right of your screen and select the “Web Clips” tab. From there, you can search, browse from the categories, and add and remove items to your heart’s content.

Fring Challenges Skype With $0.01 Per Minute VoIP Calls


Samuel Axon | //mashable.com

The mobile voice over IP (VoIP) service Fring now allows its users to make phone calls to land line and cell phone numbers anywhere in the world with prices starting at one cent per minute. Not all calls will be that cheap. Calls to Canada start at 0.4 cents per minute, and calls to India start at 1.1 cents, for example. But it’s more competition in a very small space currently dominated by Skype and to a lesser extent Google Voice.

You used to be able to make Skype calls using the Fring applications for mobile phones like the iPhone and Android devices, but following the launch of the iPhone 4, Skype and Fring got in a bit of a scuffle and Fring users were left in the cold — no Skype access.

Rather than bridge the gap between the two services, Fring has opted to launch its own service to connect its users with outside phone lines. That service is called fringOut, and it’s hard to miss that it sounds a lot like Skype’s own service for that purpose, SkypeOut. Sigue leyendo

Jennifer Van Grove | //mashable.com

As Facebook enters into the location market with Facebook Places, the world’s largest social network will help to make the edgy concept of checkins and location-sharing a mainstream practice.

Facebook (Facebook) is just one company attempting to add location for context; there are countless others going above and beyond checkins to push the space forward. There’s also a noticeable uptick in consumer interest around applications and services that feature location for sharing or utility.

The geolocation space is the one to watch right now — celebrities are flocking to Foursquare (Foursquare), location is finding a unique purpose in many mobile apps, background location is becoming a commonplace feature on smartphones, geofencing is evolving in purpose and function, and location-based social networks are proving to be the perfect platforms for cause marketing. What follows is a more detailed look at these five huge trends in location and how they will influence consumer adoption and inspire developer creativity. Sigue leyendo
