Lunch Links: A Techy Thursday

– Cory Booker mayor of Newark, New Jersey, defeated Steve Lonegan (R.) Wednesday in a special election for a Senate seat. Booker is an avid user of social media and tweets about his daily life, you know, like saving a woman from a burning building.

– Booker will be joining the ranks of only four African Americans to have been directly elected to the Senate in American history.

– Meanwhile, Anthony Weiner blames the internet for losing his gubernatorial bid.

– Our phones can now help us communicate via calls, texts, video, snapchats… but hey what about smells? Well, no worries, “vapor communication” coming soon with the OPHONE.

– If technology is moving too fast for you, feel free to step back to Super Mario Brothers for a little blast from the past on your Web browser.

Just remember it’s going to be the future soon.
