android-l-emuMuch has been said and done about the recently announced Android L over at Google I/O 2014, where we do know that Android L will be released soon on select Android-powered handsets.

braille-computing-gloveI am a firm believer that the very day in which we stop learning, that is more often than not the day that we die. Learning Braille is definitely not easy at all, especially for someone who has not yet lost his or her sight, and for those who have lost their eyesight and want to pick up Braille, it can be quite challenging, too.

amazon-logo-largeIt seems that France’s Senate has recently approved of an amendment to the “Lang Law”, which so happens to be a 1981 statute that will fix the price of books, in order to prevent online booksellers from coming up with steep discounts for the consumers, or to offer free shipping of books. Both La Cinquième République and Amazon have been duking out over this particular issue for the past eight years, where a Lang Law amendment made last year stopped online discounts that go over the 5% mark as well as free shipping.

putin-iphone5sRussia is a vast country, never mind that it already had many of other smaller countries come out of it when the U.S.S.R. somewhat disbanded.
