Google+ Beating Facebook When it comes to Privacy – For Now

Google’s answer to Facebook debuted on Tuesday, named Google+. The internet giant is presenting it as a Facebook alternative.

Facebook’s most glaring weakness has always been privacy, with its practices constantly under attack as being self-serving, ever-mutating and confusing.

Facebook Poised to Unveil Skype-Powered Video Chat

Downloads of Apple Apps Passes 15 Billion

Apple has announced that their store has now served over 15 billion app downloads.

According to official statistics, their store has grown from zero apps to over 400,000 in the past three years, with a quarter of those being native to the iPad.

These are impressive figures any way you slice it, but looking at them another way makes it even more interesting. Apple lists 200 million iOS users globally, meaning that each user averages 75 apps.
