Facebook Terms Most Users May Be Violating Right Now

"I accept and read the terms and conditions on this site."

People say that this is one of the greatest lies ever existing on the tech world. When you sign up for an account online, or install a program on your computer, you are always asked if you have read and accepted the terms before you proceed to the next step of the registration process. We, who are always in a hurry or are too busy to read all of the statements included on the terms, skipped that part and agree to whatever is written there just to finish the process.

The Works of Román Cortés

If you ever thought that you couldn't do extraordinary things on the web without the use of JavaScript or Flash, you're purely mistaken. While sitehopping, I came across to Román Cortés' portfolio ( and have experienced the jaw-dropping CSS tricks he made. I always believed we need to rely on JavaScript for these kind of tricks, but I was wrong. And so I compiled his must-be-seen works in this post to give you an idea what I'm talking about.

Rework: A Book You Shouldn't Not Read

Workaholism is a sin. Long term plans are useless. 
Meetings are poisonous. Agree?

These are just a glimpse of Rework, the business book by 37signals - the team behind Ruby on Rails, Basecamp, and other powerful web apps you may be familiar with. This book, which was exactly released last year, encompasses short essays and witty illustrations bashing (with sense) the current work culture we have today.

FileDen: Marked by Google as a Malware-Distributing Site

Yesterday, while checking my blog, a malware warning appeared on my browser. It says that the site I'm visiting contains contents from FileDen, a site that is known to distribute malware. I was shocked, then I posted it to Twitter. Someone responded that they are getting the malware warning, too. However, the only files I uploaded on FileDen are photos on my old blog posts. So, I assure you that L-I is 100% safe to browse. Read more to see the details.

L-I Challenge for March 2011: "Search for the Ancient Source"

While reading the feeds from the blogs I've subscribed to, I stumbled to an article. Then I found out that the blog is not the first one who posted it because there's a link to the source. So I went to the source discovering that it isn't the main source either. And so after I've opened so many links, I've found the main source of the article. To my amazement, the first post I read was the 7th reblog of the article. Aha! An idea popped in my head.

How Philippine Officials Should Act Against Cybercrime

Last night, I read a tweet from GMANews that there is a proposal to the Senate that laptops should be registered by the users in order to prevent cybercrimes. The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) wants every laptop, SIM cards, and other devices used to connect to the Internet to be regulated. I'll go direct to the point: (Excuse me in advance.) This is plainly stupid. I doubt NBI has look upon this issue very well. If they think they had, well they really haven't.

Google's New Search Algorithm: Goodbye to Irrelevant Results

Last week, Google announced that it has launched a change in its search algorithm. Their main goal is to return more relevant and more high-quality results. These past few months, Google's reliability has been questioned and doubted as more and more techniques to get into the top ranks are manipulating the results, thus resulting to low quality search results. However, they stated that the change in their algorithm impacts 11.8% of the queries. They said that this will prevent low-quality sites from getting into the top.
