GSN must have missed the memo that nobody gives a hoot about apps anymore.
If this listing is to be believed, GSN is currently looking to cast a new reality show called App Wars, wherein a team of programmers will make lucky individuals’

A Florida preschool is facing backlash from a mother of a 4-year-old after her son was expelled because they were mad about a post she made on Facebook.
Twitch.tv users probably weren’t expecting to see one of their video games reenacted in real life. Yesterday, a SWAT team swarmed a Littleton office building after a prankster called in a fake bomb threat — and it was all captured on camera. Read More
