Coming soon to a poker table near you: the Poker Shot Clock


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever played a game with friends – any game, really – where your friends took a ridiculously long time to make their move?

No wonder nobody likes to play Monopoly anymore – if you played by the official rules, the game would be over in an hour.  Web Watch witnessed a Bunko night where the “lead table” decided to stop rolling dice and have a conversation — the other three tables revolted and demanded that the round end after 10 minutes had passed.

Party poopers, it seems.

How to identify The Best electronics for any category


By web gangsta | Published:

Whenever it comes time to buy the Latest, Greatest gadget, you’ll always find yourself wondering if the item you’ve decided upon buying is, in fact, the absolute latest/greatest version of whatever it is you’re purchasing.

Rest assured – no matter when you decide to buy something, a newer version of said item is going to be right around the corner.  So maybe you should be asking yourself, “what’s the best item TODAY” instead of saying “what’s the best item EVER”?

How anonymous is your unlisted phone number?


By web gangsta | Published:

Quick show of hands: how many of you have an unlisted phone number?

Especially in today’s world of cellphones, the notion of a “phone book” that is printed on paper and delivered to your house is almost laughable.  People purposefully have their phone numbers listed in a phone book as part of being neighborly and accessible, but with the Do Not Call list and robocalls and other phone annoyances, more and more people are choosing to go off the grid (for personal or professional reasons).

With a cell phone, your number is pretty much already unlisted.  Nobody should be using your cell number unless you provided it to them.

And so what’s the big deal if someone had your number anyway?
