You've saved just enough for that ticket to Thailand but barely have enough cash left to pay for a mango smoothie, let alone a hostel. Fortunately you can now crash on a person's sofa using an online travel network. Unfortunately that person might be a batshit crazy rapist. Not to worry, we've compiled a guide to find…
There's nothing like a good DVI to better your watching/gaming/skyping experience.

If Facebook fraudster Iain Wood has taught us anything, it's to distrust thy neighbor. Because sometimes thy neighbor stalks you on Facebook, steals your mail, then uses your personal information to rob you.
Phone numbers are intangible, frivolous things. No one in their right mind would collect them, right? Wrong. Meet Dennis Mykytyn, the man who purchased 100 coveted phone numbers with 212 area codes for $30 a pop in 2007. Yes, this guy spent $3,000 on phone numbers.
As if stock markets of the world needed any more problems after the recent U.S. credit downgrade and the market catastrophe that followed. Yesterday, trading in seven Hong Kong stocks stopped after the exchange's website was shut down by an attack. Poor poor stock market guys.
