Chat On Facebook Without Logging On

Want more ways to chat with your Facebook friends that don’t require you to be logged on to the social media site?

Israeli start-up Facemoods is launching a toolbar this week that allows you to have a chat window come up on any page you’re browsing (you don’t have to be logged on to Facebook).
Compatible with Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer, the toolbar downloads for free here. As soon as you do that, you see a little Facebook chat icon at the top of the tool bar. Click on it and a new window appears, allowing you to insert an emoticon or animation in your chat, from any browser window.
Facemoods has a variety of emoticons to choose from—everything from a crying guy, to little piggies and cows, to celebrity emoticons (we think we spotted a Justin Bieber doppelganger), to a guy with his pants pulled down (ever wanted to moon someone on Facebook? Now you can).
The emotions and animations can appear both in chats, and can be inserted onto wall posts. The browser add-on works on both PCs and Macs, and you can select from about 12 different languages.
Also, check out Facemoods on Facebook — the page has more than 9 million likes, which proves its growth hasn’t slowed down since August when we wrote that it was one of the fastest growing pages on the social network.
Have you tried this toolbar yet and if so, what do you think of it?

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
