Facebook wins lawsuit against spammerThinking of working out some SPAM scheme to take advantage of users on social networking sites? After last week many would-be spammers may be thinking twice. On Friday the social networking site Facebook was awarded an $873 million fine for damages from an online spammer. This was the largest settlement awarded to date under the CAN-SPAM act of 2003.

A Canadian citizen named Adam Guerbuez with his company Atlantic Blue Capital used different types earlier this year to trick Facebook users into thinking they had messages from other Facebook “friends”. The messages were really from Guerbuez and his company and contained advertisement for sex enhancement drugs, illegal narcotics and sexual explicit materials.

Spam nightmares be gone with The Dream CAPTCHAIt’s tough to get a good night’s sleep when you’re in the middle of a good dream and suddenly you’re assaulted by advertisements. There you are playing poker with Sigmund Freud, Superman and Seinfeld when suddenly you’re looking at an ad for penis enlargement instead of a king of clubs.

The Dream Captcha can help. Inspired by Native American dream catchers, it will protect you and your dreams from pop-ups,viagra ads, and all sorts of other dream-spam. Sadly, you’ll have to make one yourself, since it isn’t available for sale.

Cheeseburger in a can the new spam?

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2008

Cheeseburger in a canWhen char broiling a burger with your tailpipe is just not doing it for you, why not cook up a cheeseburger in a can? This tops my list of bad ideas and has got to be this century’s equivalent to spam.

The entire cheeseburger comes in the can. You just boil the can for a few minutes and pop it open. This comes from a company called Katadyn, a Swiss-based company that primarily deals with mobile water sterilization and desalination equipment. Until now. Now they are focused on strange MREs. They have a powdered wine that when reconstituted has an alcohol content of over 9%, a chocolate mousse, and of course the burger in a can. They all supposedly have a shelf life of 12 months. Gross.
