After Much Chaos, Google+ Seems To Have Settled

Google+ caught the eye of the world even when the project wasn’t complete. Even though the users were limited to around 750 million, people wanted it like crazy.

Is Google’s social networking service better than its competitors? Or Do people want a change from their old social networks? The answer lies in the latter one. With Google+, users are getting the change they want.

LulzSec Posts Fake Article Claiming Murdoch’s Death

I guess LulzSec never really resigned, and the whole thing was just a way to engage in a cooldown period and get the FBI off their backs (at least a little bit). Then again, members of LulzSec are known to go rogue and just do their own thing.

Rather than simply taking down a website, they decided to post a fake Times newspaper page that masqueraded as the Sun. Following the attack, the hackers tweeted “We have joy we have fun we will mess up Murdoch’s Sun: http://t.co/JArvwg1 | Hi Rupert! Have fun tomorrow at the Parliament! #AntiSec”

Will Google Adopt Hashtags? The Answer May Be ‘Yes’

If you’re unfamiliar with the word ‘hashtag’, it’s basically just the pound sign on a numeric keypad and is used in some social media services such as Twitter as a type of keyword that users can search when they are interested in a specific topic.

Thus a user would type ‘#computers’ to find the most recent tweets that were tagged with #computers. While the use of hashtags didn’t from from Google itself, we do know that Google is interested in sorting.

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.

Is An iPod Touch 3G On The Way ?

The iPod Touch could soon ship with a 3G antenna, bringing the consistently popular MP3 and media player one step closer to the more full-featured iPhone.

That’s the rumor this week from a Dutch tech site called Apple Spot, which claims that consumers would purchase SIM cards from their providers, and snap those SIM cards right into the back of the iPod Touch. And look there! You’ve got 3G.

Is Motorola Xoom Getting Android 3.2 “Within Days?”

Heads up Motorola Xoom owners, you may be seeing another Honeycomb update coming your way in the very near future. Yesterday, a Google employee apparently confirmed Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the update that got unofficially detailed a few weeks ago, will be coming to the Xoom “within days.”

This is one of only a handful of times we have heard mention of Android 3.2, an update that is said to bring support for a wider range of screen sizes and help bridge the gap to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Acer Releases Android 3.1 For Tablets In Germany

Coming Soon : PCs That Argue Back

The computer crashes and we respond angrily at the flickering screen. But we may soon risk being shouted at by the machine we have just cursed.

Scientists are building a voice-activated device that can interact with people in a “natural and intelligent way”. Artificial intelligence will help it become familiar with a user’s voice, with the ultimate goal of understanding a human and speaking and behaving like them.

AntiSec Hacked Into Apple Servers ?

According to AntiSec’s Twitter update they’ve recently hacked into Apple’s servers and obtained user data including passwords. AntiSec used a pretty known and easy method of “SQL injection” to obtain user data from Apple’s servers. And this not for the first time LulzSec also previously claimed to hack Apple’s new iCloud service.

“AntiSec,” a hacking campaign that includes hackers from both the online vigilante group Anonymous and hackers from the now-defunct Lulz Security, posted a document containing a link to a supposed Apple server along with a list of 26 administrative usernames and passwords. AntiSec is Internet shorthand for “anti-security.”

Twitter Reaches 200 Million Daily Tweets

Twitter has just announced that the platform gets 200 million tweets per day from all over the world. Just a year ago, the company was ‘only’ getting 65 million tweets per day. This January? The company received 2 million tweets per day.

All this is happening faster than you can say “growth” and leaves you wondering where the company will be at later down the road. What do you think Twitter will be at by New Years 2012? Kind of frightening when you think about it.
