Is there anything that is impossible or undoable for the developers/hackers? I bet not! Give them anything new and the first thing they would want to do is modify or alter it to be in total command. Nexus S is no exception and some of those smart folks have already Rooted the Nexus S on Gingerbread.

In case you aren’t aware, Rooting your Android based device lets you play around and overclock your CPU, flash desired ROMS, get rid of the lousy Carrier loaded apps, etc. I did that on my HTC Desire and it looks better now and even more smarter folks have done this with the latest, Nexus S.

We have seen how Mark Zuckerberg and his team has taken Facebook from being a social place to a booming business with some bright strategy. Facebook’s virtual currency, advertizing, etc has had a gargantuan impact on the business of the network itself. For any business or advertiser it is a haven serving over 50 billion ads a month and that number is expected to reach a trillion by the year’s end.

The major reason is I had nothing valuable to share with the online community and I definitely couldn’t set myself a task to ramble about randomly and waste our readers’ time.
