Controversial app Qwitter goes up for sale

Qwitter, the web app that notifies you when people unfollow you on Twitter, is being sold so that the owners can focus on another project.
Qwitter caused quite the splash in social media news in 2008 when it came out, not to mention more than a few awkward silences and broken hearts. After notifications suddenly stopped arriving in its users’ inboxes late that year, the service lay dormant until it was overhauled by Velocis Enterprises in 2010, the company that runs TweetSaver.
Velocis re-released Qwitter last year and notifications began arriving once again. Only one year later, however, the owners have elected to focus on Cardstr, an as-yet unlaunched service that appears to be a potential Groupon competitor, which necessitates Qwitter’s sale.
Qwitter is being auctioned through popular website marketplace Flippa, and bids are heading past $5,000 at the time of writing. The auction has two days left.

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…
