The man behind the success of Apple has certainly come a long way since his first apperance on TV. Though he rarely appears on TV in such interviews now-a-days his presentations for new products are much more polished then this is. The difference in his nerves and excitement show how much he’s changed his approach....
Although you’ve been able to use Facebook on many phones and through many apps, HTC has just confirmed that their new phones ChaCha and Salsa will have a dedicated Facebook button. With so many of use using Facebook it interact with our family and friends, it comes as no surprise that this would be the...
So if you hadn’t heard, Nabisco and Oreo had tried to set the record for most Facebook ‘Likes’ in a 24-hour period. They sent the following message to their followers: ?’Like’ this post to join Oreo fans around the world in setting a Guinness World Record for most ‘Likes’ to a post in 24 hours....
There is a lot of hype and hubbub surrounding IBM’s Watson computer competing on Jeopardy! against two of the best contestants ever, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. It’s quite an interesting idea and it will be fun to see how it spans out in the end. Will computer be able to beat human? Are electronics...
