  1. Grumpy Cat Challenges Oscar The Grouch to a Grump/Grouch-off in This Video

Well, with the help of Mashable, she's now successfully taken off the grumpiest grump to ever grump -- or, well, grouch.

  2. Entertainment Weekly Ad Includes Embedded Smartphone, Embraces Digital Age in a Weird Way

    What our magazines clearly need are more odd stunts that splice the technology of today with the archaic print model. That's obviously what Entertainment Weekly thought when they embedded a functional smartphone into their October 5th issue. The magazine includes an ad that shows live tweets from the @CW_network Twitter as well as clips of two shows from the network, The Arrow and Emily Owens, M.D. Turns out this digital tomfoolery required the base mechanics of an Android smartphone.

  4. How The World Uses Social Networks [Infographic]

    With f8 come and gone just yesterday and the tidal wave of Google+ buzz only a few months behind us, you may be wondering exactly how social networks stack up all around the world. Well, Mashable has got just the infographic for you. You may know what the case is where you're from, but you might be surprised how different it is somewhere else. Granted, most of the time it's just a question of how much Facebook is crushing the competition, but you might be surprised that that isn't the case everywhere. Unfortunately, information from China and India was hard to find and parse, so they had to be left out. However, there are still plenty of other places to see.

  5. Flash vs. HTML5 Pong

    Ever since Apple began taking over the world, Adobe's Flash has been under a lot more scrutiny, considering Apple overlord Steve Jobs has openly decried it in favor of HTML5. There's been a lot of buzz surrounding the Flash vs. HTML5 debate, so the team over at Code Computerlove decided to put it to a more practical test: Flash vs HTML5 in the form of Pong, with the left side being Flash and the right side being HTML5.

  6. New Twitter Design Based on Golden Ratio

  7. The Rebellion Against Digg v4

    If the comments on almost every Digg frontpage article are to be believed, today marks the day that many Digg users plan to jump ship, if they haven't already done so. "Make RIPP DIGG your profile image Monday is Abandon Digg Day," reads one often copy-pasted comment. Many commenters extol the newfound virtues of Digg's sorta-rival in the social bookmarking business, Reddit, which recently struck a rebellious, pro-user pose by defying its corporate masters at Condé Nast and running free advertisements in support of Proposition 19 when Condé forbid it to "benefit financially"off of the issue of relaxing anti-marijuana laws. Since last Wednesday, when Digg underwent a major overhaul and became Digg v4, the grievance against the site has been that it's sold its user base out to big publishers and advertisers. Whereas Digg content used to be driven by user submissions, now, publishers automatically submit articles via RSS feed, from whence they get Diggs up -- the unit of social currency that determines what content makes it to the site's front page -- primarily from their "followers," the users who subscribe to their feeds. The new Digg looks, therefore, like a mix of Facebook, Twitter, and RSS. Is the new Digg as broken as its detractors are saying? The front page, for its part, does not make the new Digg look like a site that anyone would want to read.

  8. Foursquare Users Worried About Privacy, Continue Providing Locations to Potential Stalkers

    "Investigative reporting" or creeping, you decide: To show Guardian reporter Leo Hickman was able to track down a woman selected at random with her Foursquare account, recent tweets, and personal details acquired from Google searches, including a photo. Needless to say, Louise was quite "unnerved" when a reporter showed up at the central London pub she was in.
