Fifa world cup 2010 merchandise goes on sale in South Africa

I went to a local clothing store today and found a whole section dedicated to Fifa world cup 2010 clothing merchandise.Here are some pictures of the stand and what some of the shirts looked like.

Some of the clothing was really nice and others stuff was something I would never wear unless I was being paid to EG:if I was working for FIFA.

These are the merchandise I personally would not buy,I find the logo to be a bit to big.

The price tag above was from a adidas Jacket which was actually very nice!

Some of the clothing was nice and will be nice memorable for all the soccer fans that are going to be coming down to South Africa.

How safe are you really on facebook-How a friends boy friend started a war online!

With the internet whether you are using forums,blogs,social networking or instant messaging you are going to talk to some rude and self proud people.I myself have had to put up with a few people who don't know what they talking about.

I must warn you that this is more a story and actually doesn't have that much to do with technology,gadgets and the internet.

Facebook as brought so many normally people to the internet on a daily basis to talk,share photos and so much more.Facebook has really showed the none geeks what the internet is all about and how fun it can be.Unfortunately when people mix troubles start due to online clashes and other problems.

A few months ago a good friend of mine started dating a guy who according to her was just amazing.A few weeks latter a few of my friends went to this girls birthday party which was being hosted at her house.My mates and I had got there a bit to early,in fact we were the first to arrive so we sat out side talking.She was so exited about her new boy friend and how cool he is and we were happy for her but then he arrived.

As this new biy friend walked into the door my freind said"I know that guy"I asked him where from and he said he had seen him around at the local shopping centre and that he commented on a photo of me on facebook.My friend did not seem very happy about this so I proceed to ask him what this guy had said.According to my friend this boy friend latter identified as Dane said that my friend looked like a gay or something along those lines.When my friend confronted him over facebook Dane was suddenly all sorry and apologies saying he didn't know it was him.

I didn't think much of this whole situation and Dane seemed like a nice guy however a few days latter I found out otherwise!I logged into facebook only to find that Dane had accessed all my pictures,status updates and comments vie my friends profile!That's right this Dane fellow went onto my friends facebook account and went through all my personal pictures,comments,status updates and just spammed everything!

Dane had gone through all my stuff commenting childish remarks and ridiculing pictures with myself in them.I was shocked,I don't want random"freaks"going through my information and doing what they please.I immediately deleted my friend off my account and SMSed her explaining why I had done so,She couldn't understand what was wrong with him going through my stuff on her account.

In other words,if you think you safe from these ignorant fools you wrong.There is always going to be a friend who will leave their facebook on or who will let their friends and family use the account and then things will go horrible wrong.

Even when you comment on a photo you are allowing others to see that and start up a argument,I call this the "I was first like" effect because when this happens to me I do the following,I type "I was first like 0_o and then I was like :D" and then never comment again...this turns the person trying to argue into a potato,he or she doesn't know what to say and when she or he does its to late!yes soon it will stop working and I wont be able not to comment but hey for now I was first like 0_o and then I was like :D.

I just felt like sharing this story with you.Its nothing big but it could become a big problem if something isn't done!

How stable is facebook?Popular social networking site facebook hardly ever goes down?

I have been a active user of facebook for over 2 years now and to my knowledge I have never had a problem connecting to the social networking site.That's right I have never ever gone to to be turn away with a page that is down or anything similar until tonight.

Tonight I was told by a mate to check out facebook but to my shock I got the following screen error" Sorry, an error has occurred.We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.".This got me thinking,I often go on twitter and the sites down for maintenance in fact I have even been blocked out of my online email which is hosted vie Google(Gmail email) but I have never been shut out of facebook before.

In my opinion this is an amazing thing,facebook is growing at amazing speeds and has never gone down for me!

If you don't think facebook is growing why don't you carry on reading:

1.According to facebook they have More than 200 million active users.This is not your Mother who created an account and never logged in again!This is users who are very"active" on the social networking site.

2.More than 100 million users log on to Facebook at least once each day

3.Average user has 120 friends on the site

4.More than 5 billion minutes are spent on Facebook each day (worldwide)

5.More than 30 million users update their statuses at least once each day

6.More than 8 million users become fans of Pages each day

7.More than 900 million photos uploaded to the site each month

8.More than 10 million videos uploaded each month

9.More than 1 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photos, etc.) shared each week

10.More than 2.5 million events created each month

11.More than 35 million active user groups exist on the site

These stats are mind blowing!I must admit I have given facebook a lot of bad publicity but they have done a awesome job so far and hopefully they will keep it up.
