Wheaties Are Totally Boring, But Not Healthy Enough For Boring People
One would think, considering Americans’ sudden love of all things whole-grain, that the classic General Mills cereal Wheaties would be doing well. Instead, sales of the cereal have been falling for years, and no one seems interested in other cereals under the Wheaties brand. It’s all because the cereal is simultaneously, but not boring enough.
What do you think of when you think of Wheaties? Famous sports figures? Plain brown flakes? Kurt Vonnegut? Most likely, you don’t associate Wheaties with much of anything, which is a problem for a cereal charging name-brand prices…
2014 World Cup in Brazil Already Going Social and Mobile
The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is still some 27 months away, but the event is already taking steps into the mobile and social arenas.
FIFA — international soccer’s governing body — announced on Wednesday the launch of a new YouTube channel it will begin to populate with highlights, features and action from past World Cups in the run-up to Brazil 2014. The channel is called FIFA TV. Posts so far include a highlight reel of Argentine star Lionel Messi from World Cup 2010 in South Africa, clips from the Under-20 World Cup last summer, and a welcome video…

Dell Thinks That Second Hard Drive Bay Is Just A Big Hole
Spencer’s Dell laptop has two hard drive bays. That’s pretty cool, and he decided to take advantage of this by using it to install a hard drive. But no one at Dell has ever heard of such a crazy thing, and you can’t order any of the parts needed to actually hold or connect the drive from Dell’s site. Because that would be simple and easy.
If you’re not technically inclined, scroll to the bottom of this entry to see the handy summary chart that Spencer made…
Networks for Remote Contractors See Massive Growth
As more employers embrace telecommuting, marketplaces that connect them with remote freelance workers are taking off.
These sites allow businesses to post projects that can be completed away from an office in a database that workers can browse. They’re different from crowdsourcing sites such as Mechanical Turk that help businesses hire anonymous workers for often-mindless tasks. Rather, jobs listed on them take significant time to complete and typically require professional skills such as programming, graphic design or writing…
Peeved Mass Effect 3 Fans Might Actually Get The Ending They Want
For several years, a growing number of people have enjoyed beating the hell out of Geth, mastering head-shots on husks and trying to save the entire, expanding universe as Commander Shepherd in the Mass Effect series of video games. But without giving too much away, a lot of those same fans are not pleased with how the series finally wrapped up in Mass Effect 3.
There have been online petitions calling for new endings, at least one complaint to the FTC, and seemingly endless stories about whether or not the game’s maker, BioWare (owned by current WCIA contender Electronic Arts), should give into fan pressure, especially considering the huge cost and time it would take to get it right — and the risk that whatever BioWare comes up with might still not please everyone…
