The Man Behind Pop-Up Ads Is Really, Really Sorry

Source: Business Insider

No one really likes pop-up ads, and now we know who to blame for creating them.  Ethan Zuckerman, the man who made the first pop-up ad, has publically apologized for bringing something into the world that almost everyone hates. "I wrote the code to launch the window and run an ad in it. I’m sorry. Our intentions were good," Zuckerman says in his essay for The Atlantic titled "The Internet's Original Sin." In ...

As the 360 tiptoes toward ...

12-Year-Old Console Gamers are Being 'Raped' by Dorky Weirdos on Grand Theft Auto

Source: Big Government

Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Online has become a sex-saturated virtual dystopia in which hackers have modified or "modded" the game so they can "rape" other players who in real life can be as young as 12 or 13 years old. It's a new low for the video games industry. Why doesn't its developer, Rockstar Games, seem to care?  GTA, which rewards players with in-game currency for having sex with prostitutes, then killing them, is already a bit disturbed. You can ...

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.
