Facebook Offering Bounty For Every Bug Found

Looks like Facebook is too tired of bugs which strike the social networking site often. Recently Facebook eliminated a bug with video privacy settings after it lasted for the whole week.

Obviously, Facebook doesn’t want to lose their current top spot among social networking websites so the company is keen to keep the website fully functional to avoid any angry users.

Yet Another Privacy Concern With Facebook: Video Glitch

Privacy is one thing upon which social networking sites’ users never compromise. But sometimes, due to some fault, their privacy is breached leading to defamation of the company.

Facebook recently got hit by such a glitch which allowed anyone in one’s friend list to view all of his/her videos including even those videos that were blocked by the user. Videos are usually more sensitive compared to pictures. So you would expect that Facebook’s privacy features would work properly to save the user trouble regarding the content in a video.

The App Store Modifies It’s Ranking System

Apple has modified it’s ranking system for how applications are judged, based on criteria such as number of downloads. Some of the most popular apps include Facebook, Skype, and Pandora.

Google Teaches Computers How To Regret

What makes the human brain fascinating is our ability to learn from everyday experiences and have the option to better ourselves. Due to the organic nature of the brain, our brains constantly re-wire and prune unused neural connections in effort to keep cognitive functions that are truly necessary for our everyday use while “losing” neural circuits we no longer need. This is exactly what is happening at a neurological level when we find ourselves “rusty” in a language we haven’t used in years. Our brains assume we no longer have use for the language due to lack of use, and it prunes those connections it deems unnecessary to “make room” for more relevant stuff.

The human brain also experiences the emotion of regret because the act of regretting welcomes reflection on what we should have done in a particular situation. By feeling regret, we are able to perhaps make a better decision the next time we are faced in a similar situation. What about computers, will they ever be able to function on a human level? Google is interested in answering that question.

No Support For Windows 8 Live ID?

According to GeekSmack’s sources, Microsoft’s current builds of Windows 8 do not offer any type of support for Windows Live ID. Windows Live is a service that allows you to login and enjoy the use of multiple services. For example, Xbox users can use their Windows Live account to log in to their profile on a personal computer, even if they normally use the same account to play on their Xbox 360.

This reportedly confirms Manan Kakkar, Microsoft’s blogger that the feature…
