On the World Wide Web, a link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Although some link farms can be created by hand, most are created through automated programs and services. A link farm is a form of spamming the index of a search engine (sometimes called spamdexing or spamexing).

This time we have DNA fraud, exploding iPhones, and ….. well a …. not so spectacular performance from tr.im. So with that lets get this started!

The first link on the list is CSI Fraud: researchers craft fake DNA evidence from Ars Technica.

So apparently DNA evidence, the stuff that is almost the absolute yes or no in crime cases, is fake-able. Researchers have faked DNA and have proven that any microbiology lab is equiped to do it. Now what?

Boom. Bang. Whoosh. There goes the iPhone again on a tangent of explosions. So much so that Europe Examines Reports of Exploding iPhones (NYT) and “Exploding” iPhones in Europe prompt Apple-led investigation (Apple Insider).

Now what? Are the iPhones and iPod Touches going to be protected just like nuclear bombs? Just kidding. There are only a few reports of iPhones and iPods exploding or shattering so explosions en mass aren’t a concern. But just what is the problem? I think that its the components heating up the battery to high temperatures and the batteries explode. So is there a safer way to make an iPhone or iPod battery compartment?

With the recent drama with Tr.im claiming that Twitter had killed by promoting Bit.ly as the default url shortening service one might believe that Twitter was just taking sides. But no a glance at a chart by Techcrunch proves that Tr.im was denied because of performance and not because of taking-sides by Twitter. Ow.ly And Bit.ly Fastest, Most Reliable URL Shorteners. Tr.Im Comes Up . . . Short.

And with that I’ll leave you to the rest of your day.
