It was actually mandated by FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2012, Which was signed in to law by President Obama earlier this February.

Adwords – Search As You Type!!!

No wonder Google realizes what its users love the most. It already has a predictive text feature on its Google search product. Instant suggestions on what we’re trying to type. And now Google is planning on bringing this feature to AdWords customers.

The project is being named “Search As You Type,” and it is already made available for Adword customers in the United States.

Hulu Without Ads, But At What Cost?

Hulu has recently dropped a few clues to consumers that it is considering an ad-free version of its video streaming service. The company is specifically looking for a more expensive tier without dealing with the ads from either the free version, nor the $8 mobile plan.

While I am certainly intrigued, I think it’s safe to assume that the company would tack on an extra percentage (to increase, revenue of course)- rather than covering the price of the ads themselves. I mean, they are a business at the end of the day.

BF3 To Feature Online Pass System

Looks like developers are getting more and more greedy with their games. Usually, developers get nothing from the sale of pre-used game copies.

Therefore EA introduced this system which blocks some of the features of the pre used game, for instance, the multiplayer feature. Hence, second hand buyers have access to the limited content only and if s/he needs to access full features of the game, s/he needs to pay some extra money to get a code from the publisher which unlocks these features.

Google Buys IBM Patents

Suing rival tech companies has now become child’s play for big IT companies. Consequently every company is trying to decorate its portfolio with as many patents as it can by buying patents from different companies.

Google, which had recently been sued by Oracle for Java patent infringement in development of Android has also decided to take some precautionary measures.

eBay Gets Aggressive With Social Strategy

Paypal which is now a subsidiary of eBay, earlier this year merged their programming interface and developers with that of eBay for a joint venture, X.Commerce. X Commerce is a cloud based toolkit that allows businesses to innovate the e-commerce industry.

Mozilla Plans New Operating System

There is currently a race going on between smartphones’ operating system companies Google and Apple, both leading with their Android and iOS operating systems. But guess what? Mozilla is also joining the race.

Mozilla has announced that it will be working on development of a new opeating system. This will be an open source operating system. It is code named as “Boot To Gecko” as it is powered by Gecko, a layout rendering engine. It will be a completely open source operating system unlike Android.

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.
