Facebook Is Stealing People’s Work and Making Tons of Money Off Of It [Video]

That's Freebooting. And it's just like stealing music. It's wrong.

What Would It Be Like If We Did Internet Things in Real Life? [Video]

Admit it, we all do some really dumb crap on the Internet.

I'm not talking about posting videos of us doing dumb things -- although we do that. I'm just talking about all the things we do every day: liking posts, hating on posts, stalking people, captchas, watching porn. OK, maybe that last one isn't as weird.

FCC Thinks Our Broadband is Too Slow; For Once Government Gets it Right

The FCC has voted to raise the broadband definition threshold to more than FIVE TIMES the current broadband speeds offered.

This Website Tells You if a Band is Emo or Not (and Plays You Video of a Cat Watching Slayer)

I remember hearing the word "emo" the first time when I was maybe 12. The guy spat it out of his mouth like being emo was the worst possible thing in the world. He was talking about a band I liked... but he was a tool and he smelled bad, so I decided not to pay too much attention.

Since then I haven't really cared if someone dubs a band I like emo. No one seems to agree on what it means anyway.

Well, now it's simple! There's a website that will tell you if a band is emo or not. And It's gotta be correct! Because as we all know, the internet doesn't lie. Ever.
