Facebook is in the news again today having apparently surpassing Google's main search page in traffic, at least for a minute or two. However interesting the news might be however, a lot depends on how we measure traffic, as well as what happens when people arrive at our destinations. Facebook, now in deep to investors to the tune of $716 million, has since its inception 6 years ago still not brought in significant revenue, if any at all. Facebook, regardless of its viability, is one of the most interesting startup companies ever launched. The core value of the platform being... Read More >

The ability to create a universal language sounds like something that can only happen on a Biblical scale. But Google just may be our modern day version of the Tower of Babel. With the large amount of data the search engine company processes on a daily basis, the past ten years have enabled Google to create quite a translation system. Scouring all those web pages to increase its search prowess, Google is looking deeper into its own infrastructure to refine its translation system. And the data Google collects goes beyond text search on web pages. When it comes to building... Read More >

Apple Public Relations

Either Apple lost their mojo, or they really just had it with the army of copycats following in their footsteps like some perverted predators. Or so it seems. In a full-power PR war, Apple decided to protect its brand and the identity it creates within every product at all cost. While still in the middle of a legal dispute with Nokia (that sued Apple for patent infringement in October 2009, followed in December by an Apple contra-suit alleging that Nokia infringed 13 of its patents), Apple turns against one of its main competitors. Directly or indirectly, the following affects Google... Read More >

online vs print media

More people get their news from online resources versus print media, with online news-intake also surpassing other channels including radio. The survey results came from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which took daily tracking surveys from 2,259 adults age 18 or older. So what does it all really mean? I doubt anyone is really surprised that we've reached this point--online media has grown to a large extent, especially in the past few years. The print media has been dreading this day for some time, though the ongoing expectations of news media reaching this level of online permeation has... Read More >

2010-02-26 by Aaron Sarno

It wasn't too long ago that we learned of a lawsuit being brought against a school for the use of webcams for spying on students' behavior on and off campus. Now Gizmodo notes another school teacher that brags about spying on his students at a school in the Bronx, as seen in a Frontline segment that aired earlier this month. The aim of Frontline's coverage was to highlight the use of technology in schools, and how laptops and Google Docs were turning the Bronx school around.
