Almost everyone in the industry has tried their hand at innovating the same MagSafe, Micro-USB and even type-C, until the actual solution was finally upon us - wireless charging. Even that is hardly popular right now with few consumer devices actually supporting it. Why is that the case? Is there something wrong with how it has come to be?

    It is still nding its feet under the frenetic mass of ever-burgeoning social media interaction however, whilst withstanding the onslaught of censorship policies and cyberattacks at the same time. History notes that this change was not easy, as many operators resisted going from an already working system to something that was just a standard in text.

    With those humble beginnings, the Internet has grown into an entity that is now an integral part of everyones lives. While it may be entirely possible to live a day or two without the internet, it is hard to imagine a life without it. Launched in the beta version at the moment, Graph Search is available to limited users, and will be rolled out slowly across the board.

    The Graph Search results focus on four core points people, places, photos and interests. Facebook can easily create these results after it spent quite a few years urging users to upload information, interests and photographs to their prole online. The premise of people search works on both types of queries Facebook Graph Search Logo Facebook Graph Search Photo Search Facebook unveils Graph Search Facebook in January announced a new search engine on its social networking web site, making search results more relevant to you on a social scale.

    Data accu20 Digit February www. An direct people search example given by Facebook is people named Chris who are friends of Lars and went to Stanford. Alternatively, you could do a generic search like My Friends who live in New Delhi. Apart from direct people related search, you could search for interests that you may have. Apart from the people search, the photo search is surely going to see the privacy brigade go up in arms.

    With this, Google must be worried. Photographs uploaded on Facebook will be found on Facebook, like they always have been. With Graph Search, the process is more varied in terms of how you search and more streamlined in terms of the results that you get. With location search, if you happen to be travelling to a city you do not know a lot about, you could search for bars in Liverpool liked by people who live in Liverpool.

    This is something that could worry the likes of Foursquare and TripAdvisor, because localised ratings, reviews and knowledge about places is what they bank on. Interestingly, Facebook has tied up with Microsoft to provide Bing search results for the queries it may not have answers to. Heavily cloud connected? While announcing the new Graph Search feature, Facebook revealed its users have uploaded staggering billion photos and created 1 trillion connections on the network to date.

    On an average, a normal Facebook user would have uploaded more than pics and made a thousand connections.

    The staggering feat comes months after Facebook announced in October that the company had gone past the 1 billion active users mark. The social networking as a service is also now believed to the most popular online ever. Like who?

    A recent study by the University of Warwick and UC San Diego has shown that people remember posts that they have seen on Facebook a lot easier than they do names, faces, or even information they read in a book.

    The study suggests the gossipy nature of the conversations that happen on the social networking web site make it easier to remember than something that is written in a more formal and informative manner. Abrams is rumoured to be directing the forthcoming Star Wars movie. Modern technologies allow written language to return more closely to the casual, personal style of preliterate communication.

    And this is the style that resonates, and is remembered. The report goes on to say, In the rst two experiments, participants memory for Facebook posts was found to be strikingly stronger than their memory for human faces or sentences from booksa magnitude comparable to the difference in memory strength between amnesiacs and healthy controls.

    The second experiment suggested that this difference is not due to Facebook posts spontaneously generating social elaboration, because memory for posts is enhanced as much by adding social elaboration as is memory for book sentences. Our ndings might not seem so surprising when one considers how important both memory and the social world have been for survival over humans ancestral history. We learn about rewards and threats from others. So it makes sense that our minds would be tuned to be particularly attentive to the activities and thoughts of people and to remember the information conveyed by them.

    Respondents admitted they were frustrated and envious after visiting the social networking web site. The study noted users who browsed Facebook without participating in any sort of active conversations are the most affected by such negative feelings. Friends vacation photos on social the networking site is among the top reasons for the frustration, the study found. Such negative feelings can frequently cause users to work up their Facebook prole and boast about recent successes to compete with friends.

    This however, causes jealousy among other users, which researchers dub as the envy spiral. Google Asia Servers Internet users in India and other Asian nations will soon experience Googles services such as web search and YouTube streaming at about 30 percent faster speeds as the tech giants new data centres installed in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong are slated to go operational this year.

This comes on what is the rst anniversary of his arrest on charges of racketeering linked to the now defunct Megaupload.

Unfortunately, soon after launch in mid-January, the service was unreliable, and people have been unable to log in the system easily. Kim Dotcom tweeted that he apologizes for the poor service quality as his servers where not prepared to handle such trafc for the start-up.

    However, this solution usually tends to be an expensive one since a significant boost in performance can only be obtained by upgrading one or both of your primary components including the CPU and graphics card.

    What do you do when you want a slight performance boost to ensure that you can continue using the same hardware for a few more months or even an entire year? Or maybe you want better performance from your existing hardware than what it offers? Your answer is overclocking. Quite a common practice in the enthusiast PC building community, overclocking can either be your best friend or your worst enemy.

    In the following stories, we will try to ensure that overclocking becomes your best friend and continues to be one. Manufacturers will always ship the components at a fixed stock clock speed. And when you overclock those components, you try to hit a higher clock speed while trying to maintain stability.

    In simpler terms, your components will run faster than what the manufacturer had intended them to. You need to check if overclocking your component will void your warranty or not. Overclocking can potentially damage your components.

    You could have your own reasons for overclocking your components. If you overclock your CPU, you will notice an increase in performance with better responsive and faster load speeds.

    Some of the areas where you will observe a substantial boost in performance is in rendering and editing videos. Overclocking them means boosting the clock speeds in order to churn out An overclocked PC will give you an incredible performance boost www.

    The patient had been coughing up small blood clots over a period of a few days. While extremely rare, this kind of thing has been documented to have happened before.

    The network of tubes was so well preserved in the blood clot, that the medical practitioners were able to recognise which part of the body it originated from just by looking at the structure of the tubes and their orientation. The doctors who treated the patient are not entirely sure how the blood clot survived in its entirety, Bear repellent accident at Amazon Warehouse A robot at an Amazon Fulfilment Center in New Jersey accidentally punctured a can of bear repellent.
