How to cancel, delete, opt-out from LinkedIn 

Posted by Magnetic_dud Thursday, June 30, 2011 4:21:00 AM Categories: Internet

LinkedIn is a social network for sharing work experiences.

It's great for research firms or job hunters.

It's so useful that, even if their annual revenue is about $3 million, the value in the stock market is near to a billion dollars (Yeah, it's unbelievable, it's a bubble)

What I hate about them is that they bug me if a friend of mine will join their website, sending me an invitation, and many reminders to join their website

Of course, as in all "evil" companies, there is no "remove me" or "opt-out" link in the email or website.

You have to contact them and ask to opt-out, and, after a few hours, their customer service will confirm the deletion

WOW!

Microsoft, on their blog, has written that, with the upcoming Windows Phone 7 version, you will be able to - hold up on the chair - choose a custom ringtone!!!

That's a shocking innovation!

And this is not the end of the shocking announcements: they will include nine new default ringtones!

That's awesome, that's the future, custom ringtones, who would have think that 10 years ago?

Wow!!!! I love the future!

Do you remember the SEGA Toylets? I mentioned it 6 months ago

I found an interesting video where it's shown at Digital Signage 2011 in Tokyo:

This system will retail around 140000 yen, with software sold for 10000 yen..

Artificial meat from Japan!

Awesome! Thanks to Mitsuyuki Ikeda from the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama (Geez, finding this link took hours, but at least we know that the guy is not fictional) artificial meat it's here! Finally meat can be really accessible, vegetarians, poor people, thanks to the cheap price, due to the huge amounts of the main ingredient.

This "meat" is light, potentially cheap, with low fat and low calories, but has an huge defect:

The main ingredient!

... in the video they call it "sewage mud"...

Well, we have lots of this ingredient, but will you eat an hamburger like that?
