Facebook has gone through series of changes since its inception, not only on the web platform but also on the mobile platform. The transformation that Facebook as gone through over the years have equally paid off but analysts are saying that Facebook continues to lose users especially among teens and young adults. While the above speculation might be true to an extent, it still doesn't change the fact that Facebook is still the most used and popular social media site i n the world.

Lenovo Buys Motorola For $2.91 Billion

The rumour of Lenovo wanting to buy Motorola was confirmed few hours ago and the deal finally went through.  Lenovo which is a strongly emerging Chinese computer company was making a bid to buy Motorola from Google few days back when the rumoured leaked. However, at the end of close of business yesterday, the company was able to successfully buy the handset unit of Motorola which also comes with portfolio of patents.  Lenovo paid Google $2.91 billion to acquire Motorola according to the info on Google's website which is really far away from what Google herself paid to acquire Motorola few years back ($12 billion).  Lenovo will pay cold cash to Google up front, which equates to $660 million, along with $750 million in stock, while the rest of the $1.5 billion will be paid out in the coming three years.   This may suggest a kind of loss by Google in this regard, however, Google doesn't see that way.

Automatic Bra That Can Only Be Opened By True Love

Smartphone apps pop here and there all the time, some are terrible and some are good but some are very hilarious especially when you think of the concept and what it does.You would really laugh while reading this especially seeing the video of how it works here . Usually bra is just bra, with hooks for the females to clip to safely strap the bra to protect and hide their chest. But, this bra is different, its an automatic bra that doesn't electronic hook. The bra works by measuring the wearer’s heart rate, and sending the reading to an iPhone app. The app then determines the true-love quotient (100%) and – if it is reached – pops the clasp, freeing the breasts within. And of course, a raised heart rate is the perfect error-free metric for determining whether to unclasp a boulder holder. Let’s imagine some other situations. Running a marathon? Don’t run too hard, or your support will be magically ejected. Running from a suspicious man in an underground

One of the great things of having a smartphone is that you want to watch videos, sometimes, you don't want to stream the video online but you want to download and watch at your convenient time. While Android devices have a variety of YouTube video download apps, which are not too efficient except for my all time favourite TubeMate , iOS devices can't really boast of much of these apps that are truly efficient in doing what they are supposed to do. Enter MxTube MxTube is an app which you would only find in Cydia meaning that its available ONLY for jailbroken iDevices. If you want to jailbreak your iOS 7 device, follow this guide . The app is hosted under BigBoss packages so chances are that you would find it if your Cydia packages are up to date.

So download it and install the app. The app will create its icon on your home screen. MxTube

Occasionally, I like to go through the Apple app store looking for new apps that stand out. Sometimes, the search isn't too yielding and sometimes, the search is worth it. Today, I happen to stumble upon an app called Confide: Your off-the-record Messenger app created by Confide Inc. What can Confide do for you? It lets you send messages that are can't be spoofed by someone that is not intended. If the original recipient receives the message and reads it, the message gets deleted automatically. This means that the message isn't stored at all. Furthermore, someone can't do a screenshot of the message. If an attempt to do a screenshot is made, the sender would be notified immediately and the message scrambled. Message sent according to the maker are private and encrypted, which means that its not susceptible to sniffing. When a message is receive, you can glide your finger over the message to view what's in the message. Furthermore

iOS 7.1 Beta 4 Is Not Jailbreakable - Stay Away!

iOS 7.1 beta 4 was released just a couple of days back and the feedback from testers and developers is that Apple patched some of the exploits which the Evad3rs used in the Evasion7 tool to jailbreak iOS 7. Evasi0n 7 was the tool released by the Evad3rs team just before Christmas to jailbreak all iDevices running iOS 7.0 to 7.1 beta 2. By the time Apple released 7.1 beta 3, there were indications that Apple have started putting things to start patching the exploits.  On releasing iOS 7.1 beta 4, it was noticed that Apple have patched critical exploits used by the Evasi0n tool used in jailbreaking the new iOS 7. What this means is that it won't be possible yet to jailbreak the iOS 7.1 beta 4. According to @iH8sn0w, there won't be any update to the Evasi0n tool to try jailbreaking iOS 7.1 beta 4. Invariably, people that value their jailbreak should stay away from the iOS 7.1 beta 4. At the moment, there is no word on whether the Evad3rs team will make a
