A Little Tech News

                  It  was very exciting today in the world of technology. I would say first on the list would be that they have finally gotten internet service back in the country of Egypt. Wow, almost a week later and countless amount of injured and lost fatalities, demonstrations, riots, looters, who knows what else. The only downside for them other than those injured or dead, is that they are still without any social media. That’s right still no Facebook or Twitter among other’s it seems.


                It looks as though that the gloves are off. Google and Microsoft are at it again. This time with Google claiming that Microsoft’s search engine Bing is copying Google’s search results to make theirs better. For a very interesting article, take a look at this: http://www.gizmag.com/bing-copying-google-search-results/17759/ 


                Also today for the web, Google opened the Android Market. You can browse and search for great apps, right from your web browser, that can send apps right to your Android device. The website was introduced today from Google headquarter’s, where they also showcased the new Honeycomb 3.0.


               On a lighter note, Apple launched Rupert Murdoch’s new iPad exclusive new’s app, The Daily. Which cost either 99 cents a week, or $39.99 annually. It looks as though that the day is approaching that Verizon will be releasing their iPhone, one week from today. I really don’t see what the big deal is, it should be available for all carriers.


                There was some other very interesting news today in the world of technology. Don’t take my word for it. Just sit back, relax, and fire up your favorite browser and start searching. As always, get out there and enjoy your day!
