Kodak is bringing its heavy duty imaging technology to utilize the ever popular social media. It is presently expanding in to use micro messaging service Twitter to have a greater influence online and is now using TweetPhoto to share photos by default. That is not a surprise, given that TweetPhoto itself has become a default photo sharing service on Twitter, plus it is also the default service to share photos on TweetDeck.

The Moon bombings might not have gone in vain as all television networks alerted the audiences of NASA finding water on the Moon. The LCROSS mission had uncovered the water on Moon last month in the Cabeus cater on Moon’s South Pole. The image released shows the explosion 20 seconds later and the plume sort of appears to be… a face [watch closely please]. Whatever that explosion may look like, NASA says it has hands on massive amounts of useful data, meaning we might have some other interesting things coming out for us in due time.
One question, is this water drinkable? I mean the astronauts might need some to kill their thirst in later missions.
What exactly is this new strategy of Rupert Murdoch? I mean why would he make News Corps’ content invisible to search engines? Okay, have the ever hungry lovers of News Corps subscribe to get the same news which they can elsewhere? Too many questions, but to be honest this is such a lame move, given that almost every other news service is leveraging the power of search engines to generate that extra bit of traffic along with a few bucks. Apparently Murdoch thinks Google users usually come to the site, thanks to a search, read one article and then disappear. So I guess he is trying to state that every other service should do the same? Bad move, and I hope he reverses it before News Corp is left to be nothing but some once glorified name in the next few years to come.
Now I didn’t know that Google GOing ahead to call its programming language Go would dig out some old ruins. Apparently Google has either been too careless with this or it really wanted to use its massive influence to overrun Frank McCabe’s efforts. Yes, McCabe has stepped out with solid proofs that state he already had a programming language by that name along with a book called Let’s Go! Now this is really annoying given that all your hard efforts just go in vain given that Big Daddy has chosen the same for his language. Google on the other hand is just quite, rather claims to be unaware of any such name to exist.
Offerpal Media has been busy making progress over last couple of years with major partnerships and launch of new services. Today however it made an announcement on a major achievement, on crossing 160 Million users and over 730 Billion Virtual Points it has issued. Offerpal Media launched in 2007 and almost immediately became the online gaming industries first offer based monetization platform. The network itself has grown substantially since then with over 2,000 publishers globally and its pretty popular given that it relieves the developers of the need to manage multiple user accounts and helps them focus on developing and managing their games and web pages. Below are some things it has achieved in the last two years:
Restaurant reservation site, OpenTable is making a big news today as it hit dining 1 million people via its mobile app. This means that the service has made a whopping $50 Million worth of revenue for its partners, given that each customer pays $50. The winning factor here is the massive directory of restaurants it has which total to 11,000 in numerous countries for numerous mobile devices which include the Android, iPhone and BlackBerry.
While Yahoo must have gone through all sorts of trouble in the last one year and waved goodbye to the chief trouble makers, the redesign of the homepage has certainly helped. Yahoo’s SVP, Tapan Bhat stated that users are spending more time on the homepage ever since the redesign. The numbers appear pretty impressive given that the time spent has grown by 20% while the page views have gone up by 9%. This is one good news for Yahoo, which means that the content on the page is engaging enough for users to spend more time, something that also guarantees that a large chunk of users would often return to the site. To be honest I detested the old layout and the redesign comes as a breather, I mean the numbers tell a very positive story as well. I just hope things improve even further in the future and Yahoo is able to stay in the race as a respectable competitor.
Now this can be a mere coincidence but you can’t really put down the chances that Arnold Schwarzenegger had done this on purpose. But lets forget it being purposely done and think what is the probability that if you were to write such a letter and end up with 4W bomb? Very less and I guess it came out in the best possible manner, leaving everyone thinking what made him do that and yet no one can actually accuse him of
literally mistakenly abusing the members. You can read further details on this here, while I try to create a similar letter.
