Posting to Social Media from Devices You Don’t Own with Status Via

When posting status updates on services like Facebook, the more observant among us may notice that the like to share what device you are posting from. In what is probably among the most subliminal advertisement, your Facebook news feed (assuming you still have one) is littered with posts that are sent via Facebook for iPhone, or via Android, and so on. Now, there is an application that lets you choose what what you post your status updates from.

XDA Forum Member smart_desk posted an application that lets users choose what device their Facebook statuses say they were posted from. Here is how smart_desk explains it:

You can also have facebook status updates with a tag like this even if you do not have an actual device . Install this app and update your status update through the app , the status update will look like it was posted from a real device ( that you don’t have ) .
Your facebook friends will be amazed to see your status updates which are posted from different devices like an Ipad , Blackberry etc .

Does this app have any real use? Not even a little bit outside of trolling your friends. The list of devices you claim you own is pretty big, and includes several dozen options. There were also some joke options, like Jupiter, Jingle Bells, MSDOS, Microwave Oven, and others.

To check it out, go to the original thread.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...

What’s Next For Pebble?

It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000.  This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs.     Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
