google street view appIf you’re looking for directions to somewhere you’re going, Google Maps is a great way to go about it. However what if that location has tons of shops and the one you’re looking for isn’t particularly clear with its signage? That’s when Google Street View comes in handy as you can check out the neighboring shops to get an idea of where it might be in relation to those shops.

That being said, it seems that Google has decided that Street View has stopped being a novelty and has become useful enough to warrant its own app. Yup, if you enjoy using Street View, you might be interested to learn that Google has launched Street View as a standalone app where it more or less functions like how it normally does.

facebook summitWe all know Facebook has primarily being a social network. However it seems that the company has other interests as well, and recently it was discovered that together with Summit Public Schools, Facebook has developed an educational software called the Personalized Learning Plan.

Best of all, it seems that Facebook wants to do their part for society by giving away the software to public schools who want to use it. This isn’t so much about students learning particular topics online, which they do, but rather how the education is delivered. Instead of students coming into class for lectures, the content of the class and its assignments are all posted online. Read full post →Facebook Giving Away Educational Software To Schools



waze LAA couple of years ago, Google announced that they would be acquiring Waze. It was an interesting purchase given that Google already had Google Maps, but the idea of crowd-sourced traffic data appeared to be a bit too appealing for Google to pass up. Not to mention there were reports that Facebook was eyeing the company as well.

However it seems that at that time, Waze’s product might have been hyped up the wrong way. Recently Waze has found themselves in hot water when a lawsuit was filed against them by traffic information app maker PhantomAlert. According to the company, they claim that Waze had copied PhantomAlert’s database for traffic light information and incorporated it into their own product.

mega-manIf you have played video games back in the day, chances are Mega Man was one of them, or at the very least you have heard about. There have been some attempts to modernize the game for today’s gamers and it looks like Capcom and Fox have found a way to do so, which is by creating a movie based on the game.

20th Century Fox, Capcom, and Chernin Entertainment have recently announced their plans to make a Mega Man movie. Unfortunately it appears that this movie is in its very, very early stages of development as there have been no writers or directors attached to it yet, so for now you can think of it more as an idea.
