PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, Facebook sent out an invite to a press event, to come check Facebook's 'New home on Android'. The press and bloggers went nuts, proclaiming that Facebook would fork Android and create its own phone. However, if you didn't wear the sensationalism-induced glasses, it was obvious from the invite itself that there would no forking of Android, and AndroidPolice confirmed it today.

All my PC's/Mac's block Facebook and Twitter IP's. There is more to life than those two sites.


Maybe you should block the apostrophe on your keyboard, since none of those uses are are correct. ;) (I kid, I kid)

If I cared as much about blocking those sites, though, I'd do it at the firewall instead of on each device. More effective that way.

Doing it at the firewall is all very well but what happens when you take your laptop/netbook/tablet etc out of your cozy home and into the real world?
Then blocking it on the device suddenly seems to make sense.

Fastest and easiest way is to add it to hosts file:

facebook.com 127.0.0.1

:D
