What's Been Happening In The World Of TechPosted Thursday, November 3, 2011, at 3:07 PM
After a cross country trip and a horrible sinus cold, your personal Technosaurus is back on the beat. I thought it would be a good time to catch up on interesting technology news and happening over the last two weeks.
At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, the rapper, businessman and ordained minister announced he has launched a new search engine called WireDoo. What's different than Google? It generates results based on relationships between subjects that run deeper than keywords.
The rapper and his team have the service in pre-beta now after two years of work. Surprisingly nowhere in the announcement did he say, "You Can't Touch This".
The service costs $5 a month and works differently than other music services. Each paid user of BBM Music can pick 50 songs to post to their BlackBerry Messenger profile, and anyone who is friends with that user can then listen to the posted songs. So, the more friends you have on BBM Music, the more music you can listen to. Users are allowed to swap out 25 of the posted tracks each month.
Is it just me or does this seem about 5-7 years too late? There are so many better options out there to stream music to a portable device.
Featured parks include the world-famous High Line Park in New York City, Koganei Park in Tokyo and Kensington Gardens in London. In all, Google took pictures of parks in 22 different countries. These photos are just the latest addition to Google's growing set of Street View special collections, which includes beaches, ski slopes, world landmarks and now business interiors.
Now that's informative, cool and "Green" all at the same time.
