Tata Creates $720 House With 1 Week Build Time

The world’s cheapest car is currently manufactured by the Tata Group, and costs about $2,000. While we were amazed when we heard that a brand new car was $2,000, you’ll be even more surprised when you hear this.

Tata has just created a flatpack wooden house that’s built in one week and costs a total of $720. Think of it as a very large IKEA project. Now, before you call BS on this story, do note that the house is only ‘good’ for 20 years.

BitTorrent Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary

A programmer by the name of Bram Cohen invented something very special 10 years ago, the first peer-to-peer BitTorrent protocol, in April of 2011.

Just three months later he posted “My new app, BitTorrent, is now in working order” on Yahoo Groups, along with a URL.

Cohen wrote the first BitTorrent client in Python, and while it received a very slow welcoming, it was just years later when the platform really took off.

Oracle Sues Google For Android Ad Revenue

Oracle Corporation has slammed a case against Google, in attempts of snagging a large portion of Google’s ad revenue through Android’s mobile operating system. Oracle reasons that Google’s Android stole seven of the former’s Java patents, and in a way, they’re seeking damages.

Apple Set To Build Spaceship-Like Campus

Apple has plans to build a new campus with a circular building, that looks a lot like a spaceship. The new building will be based in Cupertino, near the company’s headquarters in Silicon Valley and will house 12,000 Apple employees. Apple claims that the building is necessary to keep up with the company’s growth.

The lot was purchased from HP as the company had to downsize during the recession. Steve Jobs said it was same property he once worked at when he was offered a job at HP in 1969, and that the lot had a special place in his heart.

Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary Edition

If you wanted to get some more Halo action without having to wait till next year for Halo 4, hang tight, because a new Halo game is coming this Fall, called Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary. The new game is actually a remake of the original Halo, with updated HD graphics, new game tweaks and more multiplayer maps.

Although Microsoft seems to be milking the Halo franchise till the very last drop, this will definitely make many Halo fans happy and I am sure gamers will want to re-play the Combat Evolved campaign with the improved graphics.

Get Ready For Halo 4, Due Next Year

Well, what do you know? I was nearly certain that the Halo franchise had ended. Not only was Halo destined to be a trilogy, but its latest game, Halo Reach was a prequel to the trilogy. I remember thinking it was kind of funny how the prequel to the trilogy turned out, in fact to be the best game of the entire franchise.

Fortunately, for Halo fanatics around the world, they’ll be able to rejoice to the news of Halo 4’s release. Assuming your Xbox360 hasn’t had a Red Ring of Death yet, you’ll be able to get more shoot-em-up action and be able to embark on new heroic missions.

Google Works On Addiction To Adobe Flash

Google announced yesterday that it has added Flash support to its Instant Previews feature even though it is cautioned against using Adobe’s plugin too heavily. With support for Flash, users will be able to use a regular web browser to see a Flash-heavy, website’s animations, layout, and videos in the quick view sidebar instead of having plugin errors. The method would implement whenever a website’s details were scraped by Google’s bots but would also be turned off when the preview had to be generated on-demand.
