Amazon Launches Textbook Rentals For Cash-Strapped Students

The popular online retailer, Amazon, today launched textbook rentals for the upcoming Fall semester that hopes to put a serious dent in current textbook prices. As many of you know, textbooks are almost always sold by the college itself, but at much higher prices than you can find elsewhere.

Sometimes you only save $10 or $20, but other times you can save over $100 per textbook, which is a significant savings for any cash-strapped college student.

The Futuristic PlayStation 4!

Sony Playstation 4 will be striking markets by the end of this year. Foxconn and Pegatron would be leading the assembly. Sony’s looking into the next generation hardware designs; the upcoming product would look ultramodern.

Leak: Microsoft Going Social With Tulalip

It looks like one of Microsoft’s research teams accidentally leaked information about an upcoming social platform from Microsoft. The social project is dubbed Tulalip (at least at the present time), and the site was quickly taken down after it had published.

The welcome message states “With Tulalip, you can Find what you need and Share what you know easier than ever.” Which clues us in that Microsoft wants a piece of the social media pie.

MORIS iPhone App Uses Facial Recognition To Catch Suspects

The next time you think about doing something you should be doing, keep in mind that cops now have an app that integrates facial recognition technology while pulling up a person’s criminal record, all with the tap of a button.

The accessory is currently exclusively available for the iPhone and simply requires a photo of the persons phase or iris for identification purposes. Obviously, this app would only be helpful to catch criminals dumb enough not to wear a mask (but you’d be surprised of how many of those, there are).

Professors Focusing On Google+ As A Medium For Study

The previous attempts of Google at social networking (Google Buzz and Google Wave) failed to achieve the expected objectives; with other leading social networks like Facebook, Twitter and somewhat Orkut in the field, they needed to do better to survive.

Google’s most recent attempt, Google+, covered one major flaw of the other social networking sites and that is managing different groups with the same platform. This has made various professors to consider Google+ for connecting with their students.

MIT Prints Durable Solar Cells On Paper

Okay, so it might sound a bit counter intuitive to print solar cells on paper. After all, isn’t the whole purpose of solar technology so we can print less paper and save more trees from being destroyed?

Well maybe so, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find other applications for solar celled paper. MIT has been working on this project since last year, and the findings are quite incredible. The paper itself is an ordinary sheet of paper with a fine layer of colored rectangles, that, when connected to a few designated wires, generates solar electricity.

Windows 8 For Windows 7 Users!

Microsoft is on the move again and Windows 8 is around the corner! The best part is that you do not need to buy new hardware for the Windows 8 but all you need to do is buy and upgrade to Windows 7.

All the Windows 7 PCs will be upgraded to Windows 8 and the requirements of Windows 8 might be equal or even less than Windows 7. So if you already have Windows 7 installed, you most probably will get the Windows 8 next year.

Google+ Adapts To Your Feedback & Suggestions
