    Dr. Adam Kotsko, an assistant professor at Shimer College in Chicago, Illinois, believes that there is no such thing as sexism against men and that Christianity is just another way to say "White Supremacy." Voicing his opinion on twitter, Dr. Kotsko has repeatedly slammed Christianity, going so far as calling it another name for "White Supremacist Patriarchy." Here is just a small sample of his tweets and retweets on the subject:

    Chris Roberts, a prominent computer security expert, was aboard a United Airlines flight last week when he tweeted about a potential security flaw he found on the plane’s on-board Wi-Fi. Big mistake. Airline personnel saw the tweet and alerted authorities at Syracuse Hancock International Airport where the flight was scheduled to land. Roberts exited the plane and was quickly detained by the FBI. Roberts, the founder and chief technical officer of the Denver security firm One World Labs, said the agents questioned him, confiscated several of his electronic devices, and then let him go. “Lesson from this evening, don't mention...

The potential presidential hopeful on Thursday shared a fan's tweet that read "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" Trump deleted the tweet, but not before actor Lenny Jacobson got a screenshot of it: The deleted tweet was also archived on a Boston Glove live blog that tracked tweets from presidential hopefuls during a New Hampshire Republican Party leadership summit. The tweet Trump quoted apparently originated with Sawyer Burmeister, a competitive equestrian who...

Twitter’s great advantage is its openness. Anyone can join a hashtag at any moment, or send a message to another user on the platform. The only thing that is required for their message to be seen is for others to be watching. Unless there is...

Being shot to superstardom often results in an instantaneous social media vetting, something Noah, Stewart, and Comedy Central were apparently unaware of. ItÂ’s fairly obvious no one in charge vetted NoahÂ’s Twitter feed or they just didnÂ’t care that it is loaded with jokes aimed at gays, Asians, the overweight, and Jews.

The mobile streaming app that had whipped U.S. tech journalists into a frenzy announced $14 million in new funding on Thursday. Money poured in from Jared Leto, Greylock Partners and other illustrious sources. On the same day, Twitter launched its rival streaming app called Periscope. Apparently, investors didn’t stop to ponder why Meerkat...

He says it's a "wonderful practice" that started during the campaign. Tech-savvy Obama is the first president to use e-mail while in office and is seldom seen without his BlackBerry.

    President Obama doesn't need to step foot in a church to find spiritual inspiration -- it comes directly to his BlackBerry. Every day, the president receives "devotionals," or passages meant to bring one closer to God, from Joshua DuBois, the head of his Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. "Whether it's a passage of scripture or a piece out of a book that I think he might be interested in or a prayer, it's something to start his day off on the right note," DuBois told Fox News. When he took office, Obama fought vehemently with his security staff...

    It was only five years ago when Barack Obama fought mightily to keep his BlackBerry — becoming the first president to be connected by email. Now, he may be looking for an upgrade. The White House is in the early stages of testing smartphones, the Wall Street Journal reported on yesterday, with devices from Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics being examined by the White House Communications Agency. If the president leaves his BlackBerry behind for a new smartphone, it’s another sign of the times from when George W. Bush famously sent a farewell message from his AOL address when he...

    Obama was reported not to be operational without his blackberry communication device. He even had a "special", extra secure device configured just for his use. Is it not a requirement that all communications orginating from the President of the United States have some kind of transcript so as to be able to reconstruct events in case of a disaster, or a gross mistake made by our elected officials? How can any kind of transcription made from a blackberry conversation? Is it recorded? Who is Obama talking to in secret on his blackberry? Inquiring minds just asking questions....

    I’m guessing the answer is no—Steve Jobs and geniuses at Apple will release the iPhone 5 (or the iPad 3) whenever they are damn well ready. Until then, I guess we will all be left drooling and craving. Now back to Barack. The President of the United State loves his technology and for many years fanned out over his trusty BlackBerry. But things have changed—Obama now is ready to join the cult of Apple. That’s right—Barack Obama wants an iPhone. I don’t blame him. I was a BlackBerry devotee for years.Then the iPhone came out. I was jealous, but patient—I...

    There's a new "holy grail" for hackers — President Obama's super-secure BlackBerry. Despite warnings from his advisers, the president insisted on keeping his beloved PDA, which now has specially designed superencrypting security software. But that just makes cracking into it more challenging — and, yes, it can be done, says the world's most famous hacker. "It's a long shot, but it's possible," Kevin Mitnick told FOXNews.com. "You'd probably need to be pretty sophisticated, but there's people out there who are."

    WASHINGTON - Before he ran for president Barack Obama quit smoking. Now that he's won the job, he may have to break another addiction: Checking his BlackBerry for e-mail. The president's e-mail can be subpoenaed by Congress and courts and may be subject to public records laws, so if a president doesn't want his e-mail public, he shouldn't e-mail, experts said. And there may be security issues about carrying around trackable cell phones
