- Twitter Finally Rolls Out Night Mode Feature to Linux, Windows and Mac Users
Twitter announced today that it managed to implement the Night Mode feature to the desktop version of its social networking service, available on all Linux and Windows PCs, as well as Macs. The long-anticipated Night Mode feature is ready to conquer your desktop, help stop eye strain, and help you fall asleep after a long night of twittering.

The user also posted a photo with the mosquito squashed on the floor. But as it turns out, Twitter doesn’t allow any kind of threats to be posted on the service, so the @Dayd...

Google accidentally toggled the Internet switch to off in Japan last Friday, with customers of the biggest ISPs in the country unable to connect to the web for several hours. Google’s big oops moment took place after the company broke down a Border Gateway Protocol (also referred to as BGP) with a configuration error causing false announced peer prefixes sent to Verizon. This in turn caused Internet providers like NTT Communications and KDDI Corp. to be left without an Internet connection, with the luckiest of customers “only” experiencing a terribly slow connection. NTT’s Internet service, called OCN, is being used by nearly 7.7 million home users and 480,000 companies and is the largest in Japan. Google: Sorry, fixed! Google admitted the mistake in a statement issued to Japanese media, explaining that it corrected the bad configuration in just 8 minutes. The outage, however, lasted for several hours, and was first experienced at 12:22 PM local ...
