Destroy annoying web pages with a simple click 9 July 2012 13:50:29
Have you read something that's annoyed you recently? Maybe it's an irritating columnist spouting off about something. Or someone on Twitter who just won't give it a rest. Instead of leaving a barbed comment below the offending article, or unfollowing them on Twitter, just blow up their musings using fontBomb. It's far more satisfying, in a completely childish way of course.
With fontBomb, you can plant explosives around the web page, The Verge reports. Each counts down from three, then blows the writer's words to smithereens. Now that's criticism.
Next time you're incensed by some nonsense online, just click fontBomb on your tool bar. Then wherever you click on the page (as long as you don't hit a link), a bomb will appear. Hey presto. Let the countdown to wordageddon commence.

Samsung Galaxy II could drive memory card sales29 July 2011 15:35:31
People looking for a stylish mobile phone may be interested to hear the Samsung Galaxy SII is set to be made available in white next month.
That is according to Clove, which suggested the handset will be available to buy in the shade from August 15th.
Is stated: "This model is exactly the same as the 16GB black model, the only difference being the colour. The same stand out features, the same excellent reviews."
That means people looking to get their hands on it could benefit from the opportunity to record and playback videos in high definition.
It points out that it provides the user with 1080p Full HD Recording and suggests "every moment is a potential masterpiece in the making", an assertion that could prompt people into buying a new memory card.
Alternatively, technology fans may prefer to hold out for the iPhone 5, which Mark Gurman, of website 9to5Mac, recently said could feature voice-navigation.
