02/15/2013, For the past week, news stations around the world have been mentioning an asteroid called DA14 is expected to pass extremely close to Earth some time on February 15.

01/17/2013, Apple’s stock is not the darling of Wall Street at the moment, and it remains to be seen whether the stock price will recover to hit its previous high. Well, the Russian authorities are not too fond of Apple products either, or rather, fake Apple devices as you can see in the video above.

09/03/2012, One of the key reasons for Android’s wild popularity and fame is that it is good, free and well-supported by Google. However, this is not to say that Google does not earn anything in return for it. Rather, the search giant collects personal as well as other information from Android users to provide it to the advertisers who then devise their ads accordingly. Google reportedly made more than a Billion […]

08/26/2011, It appears that there’s yet another lawsuit filed against Samsung, and this time it’s in Russia.
