Tired of seeing mind numbingly meaningless updates on Facebook and Twitter by people you barely know? Well, you could cut your friends list down by two thirds, or……. just join Path!
Path is a new ‘Personal Network’ which only allows you to add a maximum of 50 friends to your network. This means that you will only have your nearest and dearest seeing what you are up to. The number 50 was decided on because on Oxford Professor claims that 150 is the maximum number of social relationships a human can cope with.
What is Path? Well according to Mashable, “it is a suite of applications (starting today with the iPhone) focused on intimate photo sharing. All you do is share pictures and three pieces of information to give them context: people, places and things”.

Contrary to a serious concern with iPhone 4’s death grip, it’s funny that a bug in the iPhone alarm settings gave many people across the UK an extra hour’s sleep yesterday when Britain reverted back to GMT. The iPhone’s clock automatically made the change but didn’t update the alarm setting, leading to a mass sleep-in.
Many users complained about this issue over twitter yesterday, however, Apple had no words to say about when the bug will be fixed.
Who would complain about having an extra lie in on a Sunday?!
