Summer has come to an end, and as a result, a lot of us will be spending a lot more time inside. After all, you can say all you like about the winter adventures you will have in the snow, but if you’re honest, the majority of the next few months will be spent with a laptop, a snuggie, and a hot drink. So to help you pass the hours in front of your computer without going outside, here are some of the best winter websites.

Privacy is one of the most pressing issues in today’s insanely public world. With Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and all sorts of other platforms where anyone can share anything, it is rather understandable that some people go to great lengths to protect their privacy.
Then there’s citizen journalism. So many things can be said about this trend, both good and bad, but one thing is for sure: there is a place for privacy in this area as well.
That is the reason YouTube has released a new face blurring tool: to help people deal better with privacy. Now if you’re trying to use YouTube to get your 15 minutes of fame, move on and forget this post. [Read more…] about YouTube Face Blurring Tool Now Available
Who doesn’t get all nostalgic every time the Super Mario theme song plays? I know I do!
That’s exactly how I felt when I watched this stop motion Super Mario video, and as silly as it may sound, I had to watch it several times.

Nope. You won’t see the little drummer boy that you are used to seeing around this time of the year in that picture. You know how some technophobes (and even technophiles) say that people will one day be replaced by machines? Well, this is a great example of how that is totally possible.
YouTube user bd594 apparently had some time on his hands, so he decided to tinker around with an HP scanner – the flatbed kind, obviously, a snare drum, and some other electronic items.

Fruit Ninja is one of those games that gets people hooked for one reason or another. Even those who do not normally like playing video games can easily find themselves getting all excited about playing Fruit Ninja on their iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad. Of course, we cannot discount the Android users who also have Fruit Ninja on their devices.
The game was first released in April of 2010 for the iPod Touch, but it has quickly spread since then. There is no doubt that it is now one of the most popular casual games there are. I have to say, though, that Fruit Ninja is definitely not on the same level as Angry Birds. I think that that game is just difficult to surpass. Still, just because Fruit Ninja is not that popular doesn’t mean it can’t have its own movie, right? And since it’s all about ninjas, a movie about the game just might be better than the Angry Birds movie. [Read more…] about Fruit Ninja the Movie Trailer
