"Friends Reunited has signed agreements with the Press Association and photographic archive company Francis Frith, which allows users access to 350,000 images which may be relevant to key moments in their lives."
Puts users in control of privacy.

Will it work?

Tempting to go through the process and see what they do know. I see they removed the online form to request this though. - the Austrian has been helpful.

I knew they kept a lot of information but was a little surprised at just how much.

Interesting piece from NPR where Clay Shirky thinks the time has come.

Where can you find those $40k foreclosed townhouses Dogboy?

Try this. Type “church,” “Old Testament” or even “friend” into Google, and the Web site of the LDS church, the Mormons, pops up near the top of the list.

In the age of the Internet, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has found a way to dominate what is arguably today’s most important information source: the search engine.

Blackberry Playbooks taking a price dive to Rogers employees down to $249 for 16GB  and current blackberry owners get A $100 prepaid mastercard from RIM - which could see that price coming down to $149.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out globally.

I noticed that in the UK that Carphone Warehouse got some drips and drabs of the Touchpad in the last week but they sold out quicker than politicians.

I very rarely use it at all and only had the free version on one machine.  Decided it would be better to remove.

RC have you managed to get videos running on the thing other than flash.  I am trying to covert .wtv files without any success.

Interestingly, I went here and connected the touchpad.  It recognized it as a HP touchpad and a webOS device and transferred the files.  Unfortunately it transferred them as .wtv so unable to play them on it.

Has anyone figured out how to get video to play on the bloody things.  From what I've been reading it is thought the encoding should be MP4 AVC H264
