Yahoo Pipes A free service from Yahoo that allows users to build very complex aggregation tools, called Pipes. The Pipes can be either kept private or shared publically. Yahoo Pipes is a very comprehensive tool, however I would not recommend it for someone without significant technical skills.

yfrog: Since yfrog comes from the guys behind ImageShack(), you can bet it is going to be extremely simple, with a singular purpose in mind. Upload, log in, share — that’s it, but that’s all you need, right?

EU youth prefer video games to social networking

08-Dec-09, 10:08

LONDON – Teenagers are still spending more time watching television than they do online, and only 40% of them regularly use social networks, research suggests.

A report published by Forrester looking at the media habits of 12- to 17-year-olds in the European Union found that teenagers said they spent an average of 10.3 hours a week watching television, compared with 9.1 hours surfing the internet for personal reasons.

Both activities, however, trailed behind videogaming, with kids in the EU playing around 11.7 hours a week playing games on consoles and via computer. Forrester notes in the report that gaming is seen as a social activity, with teens far more likely to play computer games at friends’ houses than adults.
