The teaser trailers for the movie on Facebook – The Social Network have been doing rounds around the web for the past one month and now the full version has hit the web. “The Social Network” is based on the book ‘The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal’ by Ben Mezrich. From  the trailer the movie looks awesome and I can wait to see this. The Social Network appears to be full of controversial and the punch line of the movie says it all ” You Don’t Get 500 million Friends With Out Making a Few Enemies”.  The movie is bound hit hard on the image of Mark Zuckerberg in particular in Facebook in general which has already been under a lot of media scrutiny lately. The movie is expected to be released in October 2010.

Zynga, the social gaming giant is growing faster than many would have imagined. What Facebook is to social networking Zynga is to social gaming. The recent rivalry and the then patch-up between these two social-brokers (i just coined this word/phrase!) raised a lot of eye brows a while back. But one thing is sure, Zyga wants to grow out of their Facebook era as soon as possible. Possibly Pincus now knows for sure that Zuckerberg will slit or make another attempt to slit his throat.

It is very natural and genuine conversation with the father and son and you will just adore Bill Gates Sr. [father] for being so genuine.

Apple has announced that it has now sold more than 2 million iPad in less than 60 days. This comes in less than a month after Apple announced that it has crossed the 1 million mark. So, basically Apple is selling more than a million iPad every month. Apple crossed the 2 million mark just days after the iPad went for sale in 9 other countries (Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK) apart from US. The trends of this heavy sale might continue for a couple of more months as the iPad still hasn’t rolled out in many other parts of the world.

A Pakistani court has ordered authorities to ban Facebook over a competition encouraging users to post caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed on the social networking site. A Facebook Page – Everybody Draw Mohammed Day! encourages users to draw caricatures of Prophet Mohammed. It is prohibited in Islam to depict the prophet in any form. Lawyer Chaudhry Zulfikar Ali said

“The competition has hurt the sentiments of the Muslims”.

The access to the site will remain blocked till 31st May when the court will begin a detailed hearing into the matter. The page – Everybody Draw Mohammed Day has more than 40k members and apparently the protest page AGAINST “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” has around 60k members and are growing every minute.
