Nothing is supposed to show up on your Facebook Wall unless it's posted by you or your friends, but it can happen, as Khalil Shreateh just proved.

By posting on Mark Zuckerberg's wall.

Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Page Hacked

Shreateh, a security researcher from Palestine, first reported the bug to Facebook, which pays people to report such things rather than sell them on the black market.

But, instead of fixing the bug and paying the researcher the $500+ fee, Facebook told him "this was not a bug," according to an email that Shreateh shared.

When he tried a second time to warn the company and was rebuffed, Shreateh posted on the Wall of Sarah Goodin - a friend of Facebook CEO Zuckerberg.

That got their attention REALLY fast.

Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, unveiled yesterday, is a concept designed to transport people at up to 800 miles per hour - and at a lower cost than bullet trains.

The billionaire inventor proposed the official concept Monday after teasing the idea of the magnetically propelled, pod-based system for more than a year.

The idea is that pods travel within low-pressure tubes that are nearly airless, hovering on a cushion of air, floating above thin skis of a custom metal alloy.

Air sucked in from an intake in front of the pod would be compressed and ejected beneath to levitate it above the metal sleeve of the device's tube.

Electromagnets would then zap the craft forward at high speeds.

YouTube's Geek Week is already providing quite a bit of entertainment, both amusing and incredible.

Yesterday we had the Breaking Bad musical which was most certainly entertaining and today it's a functioning Wall-E Robot that is mindblowingly awesome.

The video is a little long (seven-ish minutes) but it is quite worth it. Check it out below!

Cool right? The expressive eyes, the details on the body... the fact they took a CGI rendered character and found a way to build him in real life, from scratch? That is some amazing stuff right there.

Who would have imagine there was a "Wall-E Builders Club"? Not I.

Plus, who else now totally wants a Death Star Orange t-shirt?

A Long Island couple was visited by six men from a joint terrorism task force after Googling pressure cookers and backpacks, according to a new report.

How'd the government know what they were Googling - and so fast?

The Suffolk County Police Department released a statement:

"Intelligence Detectives received a tip from a Bay Shore based computer company regarding suspicious computer searches conducted by a recently released employee."

"The computer searches took place on this employee’s workplace computer. On that computer, the employee searched the terms 'pressure cooker bombs' and 'backpacks.'"

In her latest effort, Lady Gaga poses nude on computer equipment ... obviously. Check her out in black booties, futuristic glasses, whiskers and a brown wig:

Mother Monster captioned the photo on her official site "TechHaus."

What that means, who can really say at this point.

All we know is that with a new single dropping and her performing at the VMAs in August, and ARTPOP coming in November, Gaga is back in the Haus of THG.

In news that should come as a shock to absolutely no one, Google Glass has been used to make porn.

Despite Google's assertions that there will be no adult content - porn, nudity, or even language - there is no stopping users from using the device to record and upload their own content.

That is exactly what MiKandi, an online adult app developer, did.

Not surprisingly, Rihanna has topped the list of the Top 50 Most Influential Celebrities on the Web, a study put together by Zimbio determined.

Chart of Influence

In order to be considered, a celebs has to be active on both Twitter and Facebook, be primarily famous in the U.S., and have an individual account.

In other words, no bands, and no brands.

Google+ and YouTube accounts, as well as scores on Klout, were also used to determine which famous figures have the most dominant digital footprints.
