Mozilla Assembly Line: Firefox 6 And Firefox 7 Almost Here

This is possibly the most embarrassing bit of news I had to deliver. Let me explain why. Firefox has seem to gone downhill ever since Firefox 4 was released. Although I haven’t had many problems on 32-bit operating systems, I have tons of problems on 64-bit operating systems- having the browser crash about 5 times per week.

The mobile version isn’t too good either, and received immediate negative feedback when Firefox 4 was launched for the mobile platform.

Yelp, Should You Follow It?

Duncan Simester posted an interesting blog from the Harvard Business Review. Simester mentions a restaurant he created six years ago with two partners, a restaurant meant to be a grab-and-go food business for more expensive clients. Simester claims that Yelp started around the same time and while he originally saw the newly found website as a blessing (being able to receive feedback and improve), he noticed that some of the comments were quite harsh.

Groupon Found Guilty Of Writing Fake Yelp Reviews

In a Venture Level blog post today, Romil Patel, an entrepreneur discusses his experiences with running Groupon and LivingSocial deals. Overall, he experienced some shadiness going on with Groupon. Apparently a Groupon representative he worked with had asked him to create fake, positive Yelp reviews for his own business.

Yelp Reaches 50 Million Users

Yelp has been the “go to” place for many years. When I first started using the service four years ago, I would only check out restaurants that were a far distance from me, in effort to save myself from any disappointment. Since then, I have “evolved” to use Yelp to check out 90% or more of the businesses and restaurants I go to. I will admit that not all ratings were accurate, and have been duped a couple times into walking into bland American restaurants, but it’s a small price to pay for all the other times Yelp has been right. Yelp started in 2004, and has passed 50 million monthly unique users yesterday, according to their internal Google Analytics, up from…

App Lets You Read Books To Your Kids Remotely

Despite the recent low blow strategy to boost up sales, we cannot deny that Apple is still a key player in the tech world. To take it one step further, they still have innovative software for consumers to use, and the apps that run on their devices are no exception.

Ustwo has released a revolutionary app that truly welcomes human-computer interaction Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime (catchy, isn’t it?). Not only does it allow you to read to your child, remotely, but it gives that extra dimension of magic that a story brings to a child.

Friendly Facebook iPad App — FREE

You’ve waited long enough, you want an iPad app that makes it easier for you to connect to Facebook — considering that you spend 8 hours on the site, and Safari just does not cut it. Well good news, there is an unofficial app that has all the things you might need when you’re using the social site: photos, chat, pokes, feeds, and lots more — check it out. Oh, and did we say it was free?

Andy Rooney Has Not Gotten The Memo on eBooks

Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes does not understand why eBooks will replace paper books. In fact, he seems surprised at the notion that one might even consider buying them. Perhaps he just loves seeing a wall full of hard cover books in his plush office, perhaps he likes carrying a bag full of heavy paper books around if he is reading several. Perhaps he has stocks on a paper company — who knows!!

The point is, eBooks are definitely doing allot better than their paper counterpart (according to Amazon) – partly because they are easier to carry around, they cost much less and allows more people to consider them. They also allow regular people to publish their own stuff removing the bureaucracy of big publishing houses. Oh and did I mention that distribution is more effective and efficient — no shipping or printing cost, and easier to track.

A Glimpse of The Future – Very Interactive

Corning has released a six minute video that provides a glimpse of what the future will be like. Apparently it’s very interactive and filled with touch sensitive, electronically enabled display glass that turn household items like bathroom mirrors, refrigerator doors and counter tops — into interactive surfaces similar to the screens on tablets and phones.

It wants to put these touch screens in vehicle displays and integrate it into their designs, plus use large display for videoconferencing and business collaboration from any where. For example, you could send an e-mail from your bathroom mirror — or any similar surface in your home.
