Link: “With Creativity, the Computing Industry Can Survive Windows 8″

“For as long as I can remember, the release of a new version of Windows represents an opportunity for the media to opine on the future of Microsoft. The company will either thrive or vanish into irrelevance based on this latest iteration of Windows. Such reasoning tends to look silly in hindsight. After all, Microsoft minted plenty of money during the dismal Vista days and minted plenty of money during the well-received Windows 7 era.” Von Ashlee Vance > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek

““When you leave the house, the three things you usually take with you are your keys, your wallet, and your phone,” says Nadav Aharony. One of those three things is a “sensing and processing machine,” he says. (Hint: not your keys.) The smartphone in your pocket knows where you are, who you’re with, how fast you’re moving, whether you’re standing up or sitting down.” Von Andrew Phelps > Weiter bei Nieman Journalism Lab

Link: “Google’s New Brain Could Have a Big Impact”

“Late last month, Google’s search engine got significantly smarter. A store of information dubbed the “Knowledge Graph” now adds useful context and detail to the list of links that Google serves up. Searching for certain people, places, or things produces a box of facts alongside the regular results. The Knowledge Graph is already starting to appear in a few other Google products, and could be used to add intelligence to all of the company’s software.” Von Tom Simonite > Weiter bei Technology Review

“Google+ is a lonely place. At least according to a new study that paints the social networking site as a virtual tumbleweed town. Using information culled from the public timelines of 40,000 randomly selected members, data analysis firm RJMetrics found that the Google+ population, which currently numbers 170 million, is largely disengaged, with user activity rapidly decaying—at least when it comes to public posts.” Von Caroline Winter > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek

“Flexible displays have tickled our imaginations for years. And before the end of 2012, we’ll finally see companies employing flexible displays in their products. But while the possibilities are tantalizing, don’t let your imagination run wild. The earliest iterations of flexible displays won’t be very bendy, and they won’t appear in Apple hardware as some news outlets have recently speculated. In early March, Samsung announced it would be mass-producing its flexible OLED displays, like the one seen above, by the end of this year. Now flash-forward to this Monday: According to a report from the Korea Times, Samsung is seeing “huge” orders for this display, and Apple is “likely” to be one of the major players.” Von Christina Bonnington > Weiter bei Wired/Gadget Lab

“Users were more likely to click on a Twitter ad than a Facebook ad in the first quarter, according to a recent study. Yet Facebook will likely be valued at more than $100 billion following its initial public offering next month, while Twitter struggles to find a consistent revenue stream and remains several years away from an IPO of its own.” Von Dave Copeland > Weiter bei ReadWriteWeb
