Call of Duty Bundle

I have a deal for Mac gamers today,  The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy Bundle. This is three games, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. That's a lot of first person shooting fun, and you get all three titles for US$39.99, and it's half the retail price. The games come via download through Steam, so you won't have to wait long after buying the bundle to start playing.

Facebook's Disgusting Experiment

Facebook's management has a message for users: you are our playthings and we'll manipulate you in any way that we see fit. That message was made clear when researchers released the results of a "massive experiment on Facebook" that manipulated the newsfeeds of hundreds of thousands of unwitting, involuntary participants.

Bitcoin Faucets

I've gathered 37 different Bitcoin "faucets"—websites that pay out free Bitcoins just for loading up a page full of ads—and tested them to make sure they actually pay out. I started off with eight sites, but this update adds several more and removes some faucets that have gone dark for a total of 37 different Bitcoin faucets that really pay, plus a Dogecoin faucet and a Litecoin faucet.

IK Multimedia Launches Expandable iKlip Xpand for iOS Devices

7:51 PM, Jun. 26th, 2014 · Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

I liked the original iKlip from IK Multimedia, the first product designed to hold the original iPad on a mic stand. I've used it on stage, and it was amazingly handy. On Thursday the company announced what looks to be a big improvement, iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini. The iKlip Xpand ($49.99) is designed for iPad mini and iPad Air. Because it uses a spring-loaded clamping mechanism, as shown in the image,  it has much greater flexibility than the original versions of the device. It will even hold an Android tablet if that's your thing. The iKlip Xpand Mini ($39.99) is designed for iPhone, iPod touch, or Android smartphones. Heck, it would even hold a Windows Phone device. Both devices are available now.
