Avoid Facebook notifications

Annoying Facebook notifications: How to get rid of them

Summary: I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of constantly seeing the same app and game notifications over and over and over again. If you're ready to finally get rid of them, here's how.

The more people I talk to, the more it sounds like just about everyone is sick of Facebook. The social aspect of Facebook is great, but then again, so is just, you know... being social, in general. We've all put time and effort into connecting with all the people we have, so we stick around on Facebook and deal with the things we don't like about it -- namely, things like game and app notifications that you couldn't care less about, and receiving them over and over and over and over to boot.
If you're done with the whole rigmarole of trying to figure out how to nix those annoying notifications, you'll be delighted to know there are a couple of ways you can go about it. The first method is something you can exercise as soon as you see a notification from an app/game you want to block. The second method is a way for you to quickly scan through a whole bunch of past notifications and go on an app/game-blocking frenzy. Sound like joyful, delicious fun? Indeed.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

lamborghini sesto elemento picture

Lamborghini has already confirmed that the Sesto Elemento will indeed be headed to the production line, albeit in a very limited run. With such a minute number being produced, anyone would be hard-pressed to get know when Lamborghini is even actively selling it, let alone be able to grab hold of one of those units. The task of purchasing an Elemento got even harder as a high-end dealership in La Jolla, just north of San Diego, confirmed that Lamborghini was already accepting orders for the car and that only three units were headed over to the United States.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be offered at a princely sum and rumors suggest that payment will be taken Reventon-style, which means three equal payments of $300,000 or higher with the remainder being paid at the end of the deal. That kind of price tag will bring its owner a 570 HP V10 engine and a power-to-weight ratio of only 1.75 kilograms per HP. This allows the Sesto Elemento to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a sensational 2.5 seconds, while top speed will be higher than 186 mph.
Anyone willing and able to pay that incredible price tag better have their phone in hand and their bank account numbers handy.
UPDATE 08/21/2012: The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was on display at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours where Lambo representatives have confirmed that the model is priced at a cool $2.2 million. Anyone lucky enough to scrap together enough cash will still be heartbroken when they hear that all 20 units have already been sold. (GT Spirit)

Things you shouldn't say to Your Boss

10 Things you shouldn't say to Your Boss

01. “That's impossible.” When your boss gives an assignment to you or a goal to your team, don't dismiss it as unattainable. Ideally you should find a way to meet your supervisor's expectations, but if something truly is not feasible, suggest an alternative. Example: “I like your plan for moving up the newsletter's schedule, but I'm not sure how we can make that happen this month with the other assignments we have. Is it OK if I postpone the XYZ deadline for a week to make the newsletter a priority?” 09 more after the break...

Life saving Driving Tips

6 Little-Known Driving Tips That Could Save Your Life 

Driving a car, or getting run over by one, is still one of the most popular ways to get killed in the modern world. Despite the fact that cars are safer than ever, they are still driven by human beings who, let's face it, often have trouble retaining even the minimal techniques and rules required to operate a vehicle.
But if you're reading this, hopefully it means that you are intent on doing what it takes to survive in a world full of such drivers by being just a little more careful. So for you, here are some advanced tips that everyone should know, even if most people don't ...

#6. Don't Have Your Car Visible Anywhere in Your Mirrors

This is one of those things that takes next to zero effort to do right, but that almost everyone does wrong.
You hopefully already know that the "blind spot" is the name for the area on either side of a car that is invisible to wing mirrors. It's such a frequent cause of accidents that higher-end car models have adopted fancy radar or camera systems capable of detecting other vehicles in your blind spots and delivering the information to you in furiously urgent beep-screams as you swerve in terror and/or crash anyway.
Just gritting your teeth and flooring it isn't the answer.
However, the technology isn't the problem -- the necessary equipment to eliminate blind spots was around back when Henry Ford was still producing cars and anti-Semitic newsletters. All you need are your car's wing mirrors -- which most people have adjusted incorrectly.
You see, blind spots can be put into full view of your side mirrors, provided that these mirrors are adjusted to contain no part of your own car. Just angle them away from you until the point where your car is no longer visible in either one, and leave them there. That way, there's no overlap between them and the rearview mirror, and any car that's passing you on either side will remain in at least one of your mirrors until it enters your field of vision.
Admittedly, this seems less like a "tip" and more like "the most obvious piece of instruction of all time," but nobody freaking does it. Manufacturers have to let you adjust the mirrors (due to things like differences in driver height), and most people simply don't know how to do it. That's why those same engineers are spending millions on technology meant to eliminate blind spots -- they have simply failed to teach people not to point their goddamned mirrors at the sides of the vehicle they're attached to.

Increase Android Battery Life

12 Android battery life tips and tricks

IN DEPTH Make your Android phone's battery last longer

12 Android battery life tips and tricks
Battery life is one of the biggest issues in the Android world today. Take your SIM card out, turn off Wi-Fi and never touch it and it'll sit there happily, lasting for a whole week on one charge. But try to use it for anything "smart" and, well, that's where the problems start.
It's a pretty sorry state of affairs when we count the uptime of today's smartphones in numbers of hours rather than days, with the standard metric of decent battery life being whether a phone can last a whole working day on a single charge.
So are there any realistic things you can do to improve your phone's battery life, other than just switching it off, putting it a sock drawer and hoping no one ever wants to call you?
Yes, yes there are. Of course it's not possible to suddenly double your Android phone's uptime by magically tweaking a few settings, but you should be able to squeeze out a few more hours of life from even the puniest of batteries without compromising on performance too much.

One… two… three… how many minutes does it take your computer to start up? Hopefully not more than three, but it wouldn't surprise me if you said it surpassed that time.

It may not even be junk – it may just be great programs, but just starting up when they don’t need to. Let’s take a look at some useful programs you can use and some things you can do to minimize your start time and get on with your tasks.

Zeenews Bureau 

Mumbai: Bal Thackeray is no more. The Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray passed away on Saturday after protracted illness at his home ‘Matoshree’ in suburban Mumbai. 

Thousands of Shiv Sainiks who had converged outside the Thackeray residence in Bandra (East) broke into tears on hearing the news and started chanting ‘Jai Shivaji’ in honour of their leader who championed the cause of ‘Marathi Manoos’ cries. 

The passing away of 86-year-old ‘Balasaheb’, as Thackeray Senior was fondly called, has created a void that will be difficult to fill for the Shiv Sena, which has always revolved around him. To party workers he was more like the family patriarch and not just the founder of the Shiv Sena. 

As much as he was revered and adored, he was prone to controversies that he kicked up with his provocative, at times vitriolic, statements meant to fire up Marathi nationalism and Hindu hard line politics. 

Thackeray had been keeping unwell for some time and had been under the care of a team of doctors from the Leelavati Hospital. 

At the Sena's Dussehra rally in Mumbai last week, he addressed party workers via a recorded video message, asking them to support his son Uddhav and grandson Aditya. “I have collapsed physically... I can't walk... I am tired,” he said. 

Hundreds of policemen and RAF personal have been deployed in the area and elsewhere in the city as a precautionary measure. 

Bal Thackeray, a former cartoonist, had founded the Shiv Sena in 1966 as a "sons of the soil" movement. The Shiv Sena later formed government in the state with the BJP from 1995 to 1999.
