This is a funny story, well mostly for me but i’ll share. I use Chrome daily and for the most part have switched over all my activities to Chrome, although I still enjoy using Firefox from time to time and am a bit forced to use IE to cross-check coding and to see what other users see, since IE is still used globally.
Nokia appears to be the first company to come up with a working prototype of a smart mobile phone that you can bend and flex to perform actions like zoom, scroll or take a picture. I have seen this concept before with the paper thin concept phone or more of a graphical design with the Galaxy Android.
Forbes just published the world’s most powerful list of people. There are 70 people on the list from politicians to religious leaders to drug dealers. Some of the names you might recognize already from the Top 40 under 40. To come up with the list, Forbes has four measurements: how many people does this person oversee, financial resources, influence and power.
Twitter is a linguist’s dream come true: it compiles millions of messages in hundreds of languages daily, making the question “Who speaks what languages where?” easy to answer. That is the question taken up by self-described “map geek” Eric Fischer. He has created a map of the world’s languages used on Twitter by pulling together data collected by Google Chrome. “What a joy these maps are to behold,” writes Big Think’s Frank Jacobs writes. “It’s as if someone took one of those composite satellite maps — you know, impossibly showing the whole world at night, the darkness broken by hubs and strings of artificial light … and gave it the power of speech.”
