While thousands upon thousands of new products and technologies will be shown off at CES 2013, getting underway just a few days from now, one thing is clear: Without the work of Vint Cerf, we wouldn't be where we are today.
Cerf and his colleague Robert Kahn developed TCP/IP, or the computer communication protocol that shaped the Internet's architecture.
Cerf, who is often called one of "the fathers of the Internet," today works as Google's Chief Internet Evangelist. He's also delivering the keynote address at the Silver Summit conference taking place at the International CES 2013 on Tuesday.
We had a Google Hangout with Cerf, where he talked about the 30th anniversary of the Int…

Nearly 1,300 art organizations said the Internet has played a major role in today's art world -- from expanding audiences, finding new artists and art appreciators, and even broadening the definition of art itself.
Seventy-seven percent of respondents agreed with the statement that the Internet has "played a major role in broadening the boundaries of what it considered art."

The ads use video shot in January 2012 and later on in the year when the participants had reached their weight-loss goals. For instance, the video above features Kimberley Vandlen, who lost more than 30 lbs. Vandlen has a tearful conversation with herself before and after that's both poignant and kind of weirdly reminiscent of Jeremiah McDonald, the guy who interviewed his 12-year-old self this summer.
As the making-of video below demonstrates, Vandlen's weight loss didn't happen overnight…

Sales figures for mobile devices reached new heights in 2012. Market research firm Gartner predicted tablet sales would near 120 million, about doubling the total sold in 2011.
In addition, the number of active smartphones eclipsed 1 billion during the past year. That's one for every seven people on the planet. And while it took almost two decades to reach 1 billion active smartphones, research firm Strategy Analytics projects there will be 2 billion by 2015, fueled by growth in developing economies…

This new tween duo has a fairly catchy, dubstep-y song about a hot new dance craze called the "skip rope." The video for the song also makes subtle nods to drug dealing and alcoholism. And what's with the kid in the paper mustache?
These Amanda Seyfried and Willow Smith wannabes are prodigies of Patrice Wilson. Wilson was mastermind behind Rebecca Black and her stain on the music industry known as "Friday." He then tried it again with Nicole Westbrook's "It's Thanks…

If you're a Windows Phone 8 user, chances are you are unable to access Google Maps in Internet Explorer. Attempting to access Google Maps from a Windows Phone device redirects the user to Google's main homepage.
Earlier this afternoon, this behavior was noted by forum users on The Verge. We were able to confirm the behavior on our own Windows Phone devices and on a desktop web browser with a modified user-agent string. Sure enough, attempts to access maps.google.com or google.com/maps led to a redirect to the main Google homepage.

Specifically, the petition, which was created Friday, demands the Obama administration "authorize the production of a recurring television program featuring Vice President Joe Biden."
Here's the full request:
"Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner. We, therefore, urge the Obama Administration to authorize the production of a recurring C-SPAN television program featuring the daily activities an…

In an e-mail to staffers, which was later reposted to Hulu's corporate blog, Kilar said he is coordinating with Hulu's board of directors "to ensure there is ample runway to manage this transition" and that his decision "has been one of the toughest [he's] ever made."
Reports that Kilar planned to leave Hulu have been circulating for some time. An internal company memo obtained by Variety over the summer cited a plan to transition to a new CEO.

What if you gave your newest employee access to the same information about your company as you do one of your VPs? That's the idea behind the inner-workings of Square, and one that is contributing to the mobile-payment company's success.
"Whether it's your first day, or third year at the company, you're given the same amount of information and opportunity to contribute," Kyle Zink, director of experience at Square, told Mashable. "We want you to be as valuable and effective as you want to be, as soon as you're ready."
Zink, who came to Square from a career at Google says that, while Google was transparent with its employees, he was shocked at the level of transparency at Square.

StickNFind solves that problem for you. Stick these tiny Bluetooth-enabled, coin-sized discs directly onto an object and then track them through an app. The app basically turns your smartphone into a radar screen so you can track the location of the sticker. In fact, for the really forgetful, you can track up to 20 stickers at one time. The app will be available for both iOS and Android.

The right playlist can make or break your workout.
We've all been that person fiddling with our iPhone or other music player while on the treadmill. It might be worth the temporary lack of focus to change the song to something faster to pick up our pace, but it is still a hassle.
A new app for iOS called Cruise Control bumps up the speed of your music or slows it down based on how fast you're moving. You can set your target pace in the app, and your music will adjust to that desired pace.
There are four ways to use the app. First, you can just launch it and start running. Your music will adjust to yo…

The car's presence, first reported by the New York Post, triggered an outcry among some residents who don't want their wrecked homes on the Internet for all to see. Residents' complaints about the maps ranged from privacy issues to concerns about property value.
However, at least one Staten Island local told the Post that Google's maps might generate more awareness and support. And Google will be making repeat visits as recovery continues -- New York City Mayor's Office Deputy Press Secretary Julie Wood said in a statement that Google…

Earlier this week Mashable told you about a mom who gave her 13-year-old son an iPhone for Christmas, plus an 18 point contract stipulating what he can and cannot do with the phone.
Janell Burley Hofmann posted the contract on her blog.
This post garnered a lot of varied reactions from readers. Some parents thought the contract was a great way to set clear guidelines for the young teen and help ensure he's a responsible smartphone user. Others said they didn't have a problem with the rules but were bothered by the fact she chose to publicize her rules online. And considering how permanent one's digital footprint is, this information could show up throughout her son's life whenever so…

Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani blogger who was shot and severely injured by the Taliban in October 2012, was released Thursday from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, UK. The hospital shared a video on YouTube of Malala leaving inpatient treatment.
Malala will continue her rehabilitation in the UK, living for a few weeks in her family's temporary home in the Birmingham area. The hospital says she will be readmitted to undergo reconstructive cranial surgery later this month.
Members of the Pakistani Taliban shot Malala on her way home from school in the Swat valley region of Pakistan on Oct. 9.
The then 14-year-old had previously won the country's first Peace P…

Forbes Magazine is now available for download on Apple's Newsstand. The move comes just a couple of weeks after The Wall Street Journal finally entered Apple's digital newspaper and magazine service.
Forbes Magazine has long been available on iOS via the third-party magazine app Zinio. Plus, the publication already maintains several supplementary apps in the App Store, including Forbes Photos and Videos and Forbes Lists.
But it's only now that the popular business magazine itself is natively available on iOS -- albeit on iPad only -- via Newsstand.
As an integrated Newsstand app, Forbes Magazine for the iPad offers subscription options. Those costs are directly charged to your iTu…

Star Wars: The Old Republic has always revolved around the choices you make with your character in the video game -- joining the Rebels, embracing the Dark Side. But this year, BioWare will introduce a new dynamic for players to explore: same-sex romance.
Starting this spring -- and leading into further updates that will come later in 2013 -- players will be able to romance more than just the opposite sex. They'll be able to flirt with characters of the same gender, and eventually get to the point that the flirting evolves into a deeper relationship.
It will begin with the launch of the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion pack, which will be released sometime in the next few months. With…
