Buying OS X Lion With PayPal, That Will Be $3880

It seems like something fishy is happening in PayPal, at least when it comes to people buying Apple’s new operating system OS X Lion, through the platform. According to Apple’s support forums, one person claims that they were overcharged nearly $4,000 on July 28th.

The bill showed up as 122 charges of $31.79 a pop. Apple claims it is PayPal’s fault, and PayPal is saying just the opposite, both are investigating, but in the meantime, the victim claims to be ‘stuck broke’.

Yet Another Privacy Concern With Facebook: Video Glitch

Privacy is one thing upon which social networking sites’ users never compromise. But sometimes, due to some fault, their privacy is breached leading to defamation of the company.

Facebook recently got hit by such a glitch which allowed anyone in one’s friend list to view all of his/her videos including even those videos that were blocked by the user. Videos are usually more sensitive compared to pictures. So you would expect that Facebook’s privacy features would work properly to save the user trouble regarding the content in a video.

Libratone’s Airplay Is Now Compatible W/ iOS

Libratone an audio company released its ultra-sleek and eye catching wireless speakers for Home. The product might be a little expensive starting from $600 for the tower and around $1100 for the Lounge soundbar.

Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.

Leak: Sony Going Deep With Virtual Reality

Hopefully the days of a silly console controller are over. I’ve said it before, but I am getting tired of playing console games with the dual joy-stick. Sure, it was awesome in 2002, but times are changing and we are living in a world where we want to interact more with our media.

Think about how Google+ has their hangouts, a rich way to communicate with one another via videochat, and how about the new Wii U and the touch-screen controller? The Xbox Kinect? The more you think about it, the clearer it becomes- the concept of fun is being defined by how much we can do with our gadgets, and Sony might be catching on.
