Google just announce the launch of Google Analytics App for Android phones!

With the Google Analytics App, you can access the same accounts and profiles you see when you open Analytics from a desktop browser, but the reports that are optimized for your phone.

iOS 5 Beta 4 Gets Jailbroken

The much awaited release of iOS 5 is now over, at least for iOS developers. A few hours back Apple released the beta 4 version of the much awaited iOS 5 to developers.

But guess what? Just a few hours after the release of this operating system, the hacker community has found a way to jailbreak this OS. Marvelous and very fast indeed.

You Can Try iOS5 Today!

In theory, only developers currently have access to the newest version of Apple’s iOS5 software, for portable Apple devices. However, interested users can now get access to beta versions of the operating system. The first step in the process is knowing how to use Google. The next step is to make sure that your phone’s UDID (unique identifier) is registered with Apple.

While you could spend $99 for a developer account, you could also access the large market of rogue iOS activations that allows anyone who is willing to risk their phone while paying only $5 to $10 to try the new software.

Microsoft IE10 Preview Available For Download Today

Internet Explorer 9 was released only a few weeks ago so I am surprised to see that Internet Explorer 10 Preview is already available for download. This is unlike Microsoft, they were used to releasing browsers every two years, and now it seems that they are releasing a different version every month. Microsoft must be feeling the heat from Google so it decided to up the stakes in the game with an annual release schedule for updates to its browser.

Microsoft Unveils Internet Explorer 10 (Video Included!)

Microsoft unveiled their first Platform Preview for Internet Explorer 10. The new version focuses on boosting CSS3 feature support. The new version will support gradients, grid, and multi-column layouts with the ability to run in a “strict” mode. Microsoft promised to show future preview versions that will support CSS3’s 3D transforms and transitions.

With Internet Explorer 10 just three weeks into development, we cannot view a complete interface yet but we are likely to see fast releases of preview version before it comes out in beta, and obviously before it ships. Although Microsoft hasn’t yet given a final release date,

Beta Testing Open For New TweetDeck

For all the Twitter gurus, there is a new beta for Tweetdeck that is essentially Tweetdeck + 5HTML. If you are unfamiliar with what TweetDeck is, it is basically just a personal browser that allows you to connect with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and Linkedin, making it the ultimate tool in social media. The new 5HTML web application was created to bring the Chrome web Tweetdeck app to other web platforms. The application is built on the same core as Chrome Tweetdeck, on the same user interface, and contains many of the same features.

Windows 8 Test Version Released

Microsoft has just shipped a test version of Windows 8 to PC makers, so based on the timeframe of past releases it should be available to users in late 2012. This version is reportedly being offered through Microsoft Connect, a program for extra-special beta testers. Windows 8 is important for Microsoft because it will be the first version of Windows with special features for tablets, such as compatibility with ARM processors, and a design with touch screens in mind.

Distressing to Microsoft–and fueling its tablet affinity–is the fact that Apple’s iPad is overtaking sales of consumer notebooks running Windows. However, Microsoft seems in no huge hurry to break out any tablets, despite the increasingly crowded market.

Sources say Microsoft is expected to show the first beta of the OS at its Professional Developers’ Conference, set to take place later this year. Similar test versions in the past have had security measures to prevent leaks, such as a one-time use password. However, we should never underestimate the ingenuity of nosy geeks, so I’ll be holding out for some leaks.

Facebook Relaunches Questions Feature

Facebook relaunched it’s Questions feature today, which was originally released in beta to a limited number of users last June. This current version will be available to everyone in the next few weeks, but you can go ahead and opt-in at facebook.com/questions.

What makes Facebook unique from other question and answer sites is that the people reading, and potentially answering, your question are your friends. This is also different from the original Facebook Questions, which did not let users limit viewing of the question to just their friends, instead encouraging them …
