Sources close to the situation say the number of advertisers is steadily increasing. So whether the spigot truly opens in six, 12 o ...

ClickHole has circumvented that by updating the link on its Instagram profile page each time it shares a new story. It’s a novel way for a new publication to generate some incremental referral traffi ...

Instagram Was First Called 'Burbn'

Source: The Atlantic

Instagram didn't start out as Instagram. It started out as … Burbn.  Kevin Systrom, the creativity researcher Keith Sawyer explains, was a fan of Kentucky whiskeys. So when he created a location-based iPhone app—one driven by the success of networking app Foursquare—he named it after the booze.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
