Created by Rockstar North, the company’s Edinburgh, Scotland-based subsidiary, the latest GTA game takes place “in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California.”

As of next week on Nov. 5, GTA 5 will be available for pre-order. Rockstar will also release more information about the game next month.

Rockstar said, “We’re currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don’t have any details to share about a PC version at this time.”

Bloggabase: The New Directory Service for Bloggers

Bloggabase is a new directory service for Bloggers created by Richard Leigh and Andy Barr. The basic idea is that bloggers sign up and provide a few details about their blogs.

Once 2,000 bloggers have signed up, the service will open to marketers. Marketers will be able to see a number of metrics to help them choose which bloggers they would like to contact dependent upon the information they’d like to propose, including up-to-date unique visitor information and a unique Bloggabase secret algorithm that ranks blogs based on their prominence, search engine optimisation value and more.

With Bloggabase, the bloggers would be given an opportunity to monetize their blogs and even get free review offers by marketers. Each blogger would able to have a Bloggabase profile, giving the marketers an opportunity to see what had been most recently written about.

  So, don’t forget to register your blog on Bloggabase.

Facebook and Cyberstalking

Many of us use the term “Facebook Stalking”. Facebook stalking can become a problem, however, when stalking is less casual. A recent survey reveals that 88% of us regularly check our ex’s profiles and a full 70% of us spy from a mutual friend’s account.

Even if you’re not causing anyone any harm, if cyberstalking disrupts your life in noticeable ways, you may have a problem. Social media addiction is linked not only to extending heartbreak, but contributing to long term depression and low self esteem issues. So, it may be time to step away from the computer.
