Facebook is Planning to Launch a Snapchat-like App

Facebook is Planning to Launch a Snapchat-like App

Facebook is planning to launch a new messaging service similar to photo messaging application Snapchat, as reported by All Things D based on an anonymous source. Snapchat is also a well known platform for “sexting” or “sexchat”.

Snapchat is a messaging app that allows users to share photos to listed friends. Senders can choose the amount of time the photo will be available to be viewed by receivers (up to 10 seconds). The photo will be removed permanently from the device after the receiver views the photo for the chosen amount of time. Besides photos, Snapchat also allows users to send video. Because of the ability for images to disappear within seconds, many users use Snapchat as a medium for "sexting".

Snapchat

Facebook “Snapchat-like” app will pretty much do the same thing. Users will be able to choose how long a message should be viewable by the message receiver. According to the source, Facebook is planning to launch the app before the end of this year (if the source is correct then Facebook only has less than 2 weeks to launch the messaging app.) 

WhatsApp

Facebook has been highly interested in mobile messaging applications; WhatsApp for example. Facebook, as we reported two weeks ago, has been interested to acquire the most used messaging app Whatsapp, although in the end the deal did not go down.

Update: in the same week when the rumor about Facebook interested to buy WhatsApp came out, Facebook launched its new update for its messenger which made it possible for people to register without Facebook account.

(Update: Facebook Launches Messaging App Poke)

    year sentence for kicking john with his Jordans on

    Sirgiorgiro Clardy is the Portland, Ore. pimp now infamous for suing Nike. Now labeled the "Portland pimp," the Oregonian reported on Jan. 10 that Clardy has filed suit against Nike, claiming their shoes should be labeled as "dangerous weapons."

    This lawsuit comes after Clardy was sentenced to 100 years in prison for brutally beating a john for failure to pay his prostitute. The man was kicked repeatedly and had so much damage to his face that he required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose. Clardy was also convicted for beating his 18 year old prostitute so badly that she bled from her ears.

    Among the list of convictions, Clardy was found guilty of second degree assault with a deadly weapon. The "deadly weapon" in question being the Air Jordan shoes that he had on his feet <a href="http://www.nikertee.com/nike-womens-heels-shoes/wmns-nike-d unk-heels.html" >WMNS Nike Dunk Heels</a> during the beating.

    In the state of Oregon, adding the use of a deadly <a href="http://www.nikertee.com/nike-free-kids/nike-free-run-5-0-ki ds-children-shoes.html" >Nike Free Run 5.0 Kids Children Shoes</a> weapon to charges can add many more years to a sentence upon conviction. Clardy is now housed at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Ore. where he will stay for at least 36 years, which is when he first becomes eligible for parole.

    Sirgiorgiro Clardy is now suing Nike, the Portland pimp alleges that the company failed to label their shoes as being "potentially <a href="http://www.nikertee.com/nike-air-jordan-womens/air-jordan-4 -5.html" >Air Jordan 4.5</a> dangerous." Apparently if there had been a warning label that let wearers know of the potential damage that shoes can do when worn during an illegal assault, he might have taken them off first?

    According to Nike, they have not yet been served with the lawsuit and have not yet had a chance to respond.

Students in Utah are required to take a one semester financial literacy course, but pending legislation could create some of the toughest financial literacy requirements in the country.

    "The decisions they make early on are going to affect their

    financial well being as adults," says Felshaw. "They can get themselves into

    financial difficulties early on and it could take a very long time for them to

    restructure their lives and get back on track."

    Brian Page, who runs FinEdChat, a blog featuring K 12 financial

    education tools and resources, agrees that financial literacy education is essential.

    "We can't claim to be preparing students for the 21st century

    if we are not providing them with 21st century survival skills," says Page, a finance, economics and business teacher at Reading High School in Reading, Ohio.

    3 year old boy saved by Crocs shoes in England

    Can Crocs shoes save somebodys life? Apparently yes. A 3 year old boy was saved by his baby blue Crocs when he was shocked by a faulty hair dryer.

    The little British boy named Harley Sutton Dormer was in their swimming pool cabana in Essex near London, and he picked up the faulty hair dryer. The dryer sent a shock of electricity through him.

    His mother say a bright blue bolt of electricity that went down his arm shotting out his side. The boy was screaming in pain. His clothes were charred. However, his Crocs were no hurt at all.

    In fact, paramedics actually credited the Crocs with saving the poor boys life. You hear so many stories of Crocs causing problems with kids especially on escalators, so it is nice to hear a story of Crocs helping a child. This had to be so scary and [url=http://www.beyteer.com/mens-puma-future-cat-m1-sf-ferrari.html> ;Mens Puma Future Cat M1 SF Ferrari[/url] painful for the boy. Im glad he came out [url=http://www.beyteer.com/womens-puma-drift-cat-sf-shoes.html>Wom ens Puma Drift Cat SF Shoes[/url] of it okay.

    There [url=http://www.beyteer.com/mens-puma-future-cat-low.html>Mens Puma Future Cat Low[/url] has been some discussion that Crocs will go out of business. Hopefully not. Even though some people hate them, Crocs are seriously comfortable shoes.

    3D Printed Shoes By Janne Kyttanen Turn Home Computer Into Cobbler

    Forget that trip to the shoe store. Why not just have your computer make your footwear for you?

    That's the basic idea behind Finnish shoe designer Janne Kyttanen's latest project. He's released a collection of shoes that can be assembled by a 3D printer, Mashable reports. Customers can download the blueprints for Kyttanen's designs then make them on their own 3D printer, a fairly new technology that can create 3 dimensional objects from specified materials based off of digital models.

    Of course, 3D printing remains a relatively rare technology, with home models retailing over $1,000, so using a 3D printing service like Cubify might be a better option, according to Mashable. Or check out one particular UPS in San Diego that began offering 3D printing services around a month ago to help you render one of Kyttanen's designs.

    The collection of wedge heels which includes four models is on display on Kyttanen's Cubify profile. Here's one of them:

    Many expect 3D printing to become increasingly popular since the technology offers small businesses and designers like Kytannan a number of advantages.

    40 million to settle federal toning shoes case

    An employee adjusts a Skechers running shoe with Skechers Resistance Runner (Jay L. has agreed to pay $40 million to settle allegations by federal officials that it misled consumers about the health benefits of its Shape ups and other toning shoes.

    Consumers who bought the shoes, which [url=http://www.beyteer.com/mens-puma-sports-shoes-fashion.html>Men s Puma Sports Shoes Fashion[/url] cost $60 to $100 a pair, will be able to apply for refunds as part of the settlement, the Federal Trade Commission said Wednesday. The settlement is part of a broader agreement resolving an investigation involving attorneys general from 44 states and the District of Columbia.

    The agency said that Skechers, based in Manhattan Beach, deceived consumers with claims that they would lose more weight and get more muscle tone by wearing its shoes than they would with regular fitness shoes.

    "Skechers' unfounded claims went beyond stronger and more toned muscles. The company even made claims about weight loss and cardiovascular health," said David Vladeck, director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "The FTC's message, for Skechers and other [url=http://www.beyteer.com/mens-puma-ducati-shoes.html>Mens Puma Ducati Shoes[/url] national advertisers, is to shape up your substantiation or tone down your claims."

    One ad, which aired during the 2011 Super Bowl, featured celebrity Kim Kardashian dumping her personal trainer in favor of a pair [url=http://www.beyteer.com/mens-puma-future-cat-m1-sf-ferrari.html> ;Mens Puma Future Cat M1 SF Ferrari[/url] of Shape ups.

    Another ad featured a chiropractor named Dr. Steven Gautreau recommending the shoes based on an independent clinical study he conducted comparing their benefits to those of other shoes.

    The FTC said the ad mischaracterized the study and that Skechers didn't disclose Gautreau was paid to conduct it or that he was married to a company marketing executive.

    Under the settlement, Skechers is barred from making claims about the benefits of its toning shoes unless they are true and backed by scientific evidence.
