Hello folks and welcome to another edition of Tech Thursday on Jabber Log! Many things have been going on within the social media world. Facebook has gone public with their IPO (Initial Public Offering) within the stock market, and bought the popular photo sharing app, Instagram. Facebook has done a lot for the social media community, however, they fell flat on their first day of trading. Facebook’s stock continues to drop but they still have a lot to work with. According to Mashable.com, “Facebook has released an iOS app that looks and functions almost identically to Instagram’s.” Interesting isn’t it? Instagram has been doing phenomenal since it hit Apple’s App Store, but almost two month’s ago, Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion dollars. So what does that mean for one of the top photo sharing apps? Well, that means that Facebook is now allowed to duplicate the app without being sued. The app is called, Facebook Camera and so far it’s only for iOS and is almost identical to Instagram but with a Facebook feel to it.
“Like Instagram, your friends’ latest photos are displayed in a single scrolling feed. You can also now simultaneously upload multiple photos to Facebook; Facebook’s main app only allows you to upload photos one at a time. And like Instagram, the app allows you to crop, rotate and apply filters to your photos,” says Mashable.com. Using the app myself, I can see how others see it as more efficient. Facebook has so many features within it’s main site, that it’s only logical for them to break up their services into separate apps. So what does this mean for Instagram? Will this app continue to thrive or will Facebook slowly do away with it? It will all depend on how it’s embraced by Facebook’s users. I have not seen the ability to share an image on Facebook Camera with Twitter or Tumblr like Instagram. If they happen to add more ways to share with competing social networks then I smell the death of Instagram. It’ll be a sad day when and if that happens but for those who would like to try out Facebook Camera on iOS, you can click here. It is unknown when it will come out for Android but I’m sure it’s not too far away. Have a good one folks, photo share it up, and thanks for reading. Cheers!Post Views: 392

Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of Within the Trenches. In this episode we visit some calls from our past and I explain a few key stories from episode 40. We start off cracking up and it pretty much sets the tone for the entire episode. We also play a 9-1-1 tape that was featured in the season finale of A&E’s Panic 9-1-1. This was also an episode that I was flown out for. I recorded a segment with them where I would be the stand in for the dispatcher in the tape but after a few attempts to fit in my angle it did not work out. From what I was told my voice didn’t match the dispatcher on the tape and once you hear it you will agree. Either way it was a great experience and I hope to help them out again. As always you can email the show at email@example.com and don’t forget to check out the new t-shirt campaigns going on at teespring.com. Cheers!

Hello everyone and Happy Friday the 13th from Jabber Log and none other than Jason Voorhees. Today is the day that we try to be a bit more careful. We play it off that there is nothing wrong with this day but in the back of our mind we fear it. We see it as the day of bad luck, the day where everything could potentially go wrong. Maybe that’s why Jason picked this day to kill his victims. I mean, you have to admit that they had some pretty bad luck or maybe there really is something to this day that makes it so shitty for some people.
I was doing a little research and I found a site called hauntedbay.com. There is a section dedicated to Friday the 13th and some interesting incidents that have occurred in the past. Apparently Cain killed Abel on a Friday the 13th, Judas who was the 13th guest who betrayed Jesus who was then crucified on a Friday. Weird huh?
Well here are a few more interesting yet creepy facts. In a hangman’s noose there are 13 twists of rope and 13 gallows. Woman drivers have a 64% increased chance of death when driving on this day. Is this not nuts? Finally the great flood occurred on a Friday and the Apollo 13 shuttle also suffered from this number. Call it what you will but this day sucks a fat veiner! A special thanks to hauntedbay.com and if you are in the woods today watch out for Mr. Voorhees and any females out there driving, please be careful. Happy Friday the 13th my fellow Jabber Loggers.
