Joe Biden Slumming It, Responding to Questions on Yahoo! Answers

While President Obama fields ridiculous queries from the YouTube-watching public, Vice President Joe Biden gets the "honor" of tackling questions on Yahoo! Answers. Top ranking inquiries include "is Joe Biden challenged? mentally?" and "where are my car keys?" At least when Biden replies with borderline gibberish, as he will inevitably do, there won't be anyone around to read it. After all, who a...

Fightin' Joe Biden Squares Off Against Julian Assange, Anonymous

If there is anybody in the U.S. government hardheaded and hotheaded enough to invoke the wrath of Anonymous, it's Joe Biden. Speaking to Meet the Press about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the vice president said, "[This] guy has done things that have damaged and put in jeopardy the lives and occupations of people in other parts of the world... For example, in my meetings -- you know I meet wi...

Exploring Apple's Divinity, 'You Gotta See This' App Creates Seamless Panoramas

There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web. After decades of fighting, the Mac vs. PC war shows no sign of subsiding. A new paper from Texas A&M's Heidi Campbell examines Apple's apparent divinity, as based ...

As Dems Seek 'Macaca' Vids and Whitman FAILs, We Want Politicians Off Our Memes

Since President Obama's campaign for the Oval Office began back in 2007, we've known that politicians have been made aware of this whole Internet thing, and have found that it can be a useful tool for spreading their truths, half-truths and lies. We've written recently about Obama's new iPhone app, and even how the septuagenarian Senator Ike Skelton has taken to the "Twitters" (Obama's coinage) in...

Hacker Indicted for Sending Terrorist Threats, Child Porn to Vice President

Of all the people to be threatened via e-mail, high-ranking politicians should be at the bottom of your list -- unless, of course, you have delusions of grandeur. Such delusions are likely what spurred Minnesota native Barry Vincent Ardolf to hack into his neighbor's Wi-Fi network -- unless Ardolf was just aiming for the coveted title of "Weirdest Neighbor Ever." According to Information Week, Ard...

U.S. Reveals International Anti-Piracy and Anti-Counterfeiting Plans

For the first time in U.S. history, the federal government has a coordinated strategy for protecting the intellectual property of American companies both here and abroad. The Department of Justice and the FBI will be working closely to enact 30 recommendations put together by the Obama administration, including closely monitoring foreign websites, especially in China, for pirated American music, f...

White House Staffers Slacking With iPads, Bill Gates Leads Energy Research Charge

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... The White House apparently harbors numerous, and already devoted, fans of the iPad, including Vice President Biden, economic adviser Larry Summers and several members of the press staff. They also all seem to be serious procrastinators, as 'Scrabble,' 'Lost' and 'Vanity Fair' rank among the assorted downloads. 'Vanity Fail?' Pfff...

Joe Biden to Use Justin.tv to Stream to the White House From Abroad

When Barack Obama speaks, he gets the attention of every media outlet known to man. When Joe Biden speaks, he gets Justin.tv. Biden, who's currently touring the Middle East, is scheduled to give a speech later in the week at Tel Aviv University in Israel. Because he's not with Obama, though, the official White House camera crew didn't make the trip with him. Without the crew, live-streaming Bid...

Vice President Biden Forgets His 'Web Site Number'

Vice President Joe Biden appeared this morning on the CBS Early Show to raise awareness about Recovery.gov, a Web site that details the monetary breakdown of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Instead, he appeared unfortunately unfamiliar with not only the site but with Web browsing in general, joining the ranks of other well-known politicians like Senator Ted "Series of Tubes" Stevens...

Obama Carries a Zune?

Apparently when Obama talks about "change" he means absolutely everything. It's the only way that we can explain the fact that this confirmed Mac user is lugging a Microsoft Zune to the gym. We know that President Bush has an iPod, so the only reason we can figure that the President-elect is using a music player he can't even sync with his computer (Zunes are not yet Mac-compatible) is out of a ...

Obama's Personal Photographer Posts Election Pics on Flickr

It used to be that the only place you could get behind the scenes photos of political campaigns was from established photo-journalists published in mainstream print media outlets like Time and Life. Much like his methods for fund-raising and grass-roots organizing, Obama seems to be taking a more transparent, Web-oriented approach to photography and the campaign image. The historic night with t...

Candidates Fight Back Against Internet Smears

If you've been getting most of your information this election cycle via the Internet and e-mail, chances are you've come across a series of rumors about the candidates that are just flatly false. The nature of the Web spreads the flames of these lies like the Santa Ana Winds during the dry season. The candidates are fighting back as quickly as possible by using the Web themselves. Obama has a wh...

Spammers Prefer Obama for Spam E-Mails

Politics is one of the most popular topics for spam. Don't believe us? Go check your spam folder. We bet that you'll find e-mails about how Obama is a secret Muslim and Sarah Palin hunts moose from a helicopter in between offers for cheap Viagra and penis enlargement systems . According to a report from Secure Computing, it appears that spammers prefer Obama over McCain and Palin over Biden whe...

Obama Text-Message Reached 2.9 Million People, Says Nielsen

Barack Obama's text message announcement of Joe Biden as his vice president was sent to 2.9 million people. If Obama didn't have an unlimited texting plan, that would have been a pricey $290,000 bill. According to Nielsen, the text messaging stunt was the single largest mobile marketing event in the U.S. Despite the fact that the media reported on Obama's choice before anyone in the campaign cou...
