Myspace Up For Sale, 95% Less Than Its Original Value

The former social networking giant, Myspace, has been in trouble for a while now but it has finally hit rock bottom, with a sale expected to go down within the next few days. News Corp purchased the “then-popular” social media network in 2005 from Co-founder Tom Anderson.

New Google Video-On-Demand Service Arriving Next Week!

I will admit that it is cool to be able to rent older classics or new releases that you may have not had the time to see in the theaters, but overall I wasn’t very impressed.
