Freak Out Friday: Tombstone Alert, Wig Out, Facebook Dunces, Mouse Assassins, and Walking Fool

Wig Out: Hey, it's about time that one of the world's great tech giants caught up with Leslie Stahl. Smartphone, SmartShoes, SmartClothes, SmartHelmets, SmartGlasses....why not SmartHair (by Sony)?:

Facebook Dunces: Notch another one in the dumb criminal category. I mean, REALLY?

Mouse Assassins: Since this was a military operation, probably a better way to think about this one would be: Death From Above (which is then followed by microchip tracking). Classification: Top Sneak-ert. 

Walking Fool: If there was any doubt about the narcotic-like effect of certain social media endeavors, here's (more) proof. I'm thinking the verse, "I was strolling in the park one day, in the merry, merry month of May..." is going to need an update that reflects the insanity of the tech "savvy" world:
