Google’s latest doodle celebrates Maurice Sendak & Where the Wild Things Are Google’s latest doodle celebrates Maurice Sendak & Where the Wild Things Are

Google has been cooking up clever “doodles” that celebrate people and events for years. Today’s latest doodle goes for a walk on the wild side by celebrating the 85th birthday of author Maurice Sendak, best known for the 1963 book
Where the Wild Things Are
Where the Wild Things Are
tells the story of young boy named Max who dresses in a wolf costume and is transported to another world of wild creatures. The Google doodle starts with Max walking through scenes related to his tale and then transitions to other characters created by Sendak, including Mickey and the three bakers from
In The Night Kitchen
Senak died two years ago at the age of 83, but his work lives on in his books and other media.
Where the Wild Things Are
was turned into a
2009 film

Here’s a glimpse at iOS 7′s flat new design — it’s all Ive Here’s a glimpse at iOS 7′s flat new design — it’s all Ive

San Francisco, CA

We’re counting down the hours until Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote today, but as usual, details are beginning to leak out.
Apple’s next mobile operating system, iOS 7, is expected to be the highlight of the conference, and now we have a look at its revamped design. 9to5Mac’s
Seth Weintraub has had a look at iOS 7

At first glance, it looks like all of those
rumors of Apple’s Jony Ive pushing a flat design for iOS 7
were accurate. The new icons are cleaner and aim for minimalism, compared to the detailed and colorful icons we’ve seen on the OS so far. As for other ke

Microsoft Outlook will finally land on Windows RT with Windows 8.1 Microsoft Outlook will finally land on Windows RT with Windows 8.1

Microsoft Outlook for Windows RT is real and is coming very soon.
Microsoft announced today
that its email service will finally hit Windows RT with the launch of Windows 8.1 later this year. The app will feature all the Outlook functionality
many users have come to love
, but with a more simplified interface ideal for devices running Windows RT.
For owners of devices like the Surface, this is great news. While Windows RT already has its own versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, a native Outlook app has been conspicuously absent. The lack of Outlook is especially bad in light of the fact that 61 percent of tablet shoppers say that Microsoft Office is the most important factor in their buying decision, according to a

Yahoo ‘reimagines’ Flickr with a bold new design, a free TB of space for all users, & more Yahoo ‘reimagines’ Flickr with a bold new design, a free TB of space for all users, & more

NEW YORK CITY — On the same day as it announced its

Yahoo acquired Flickr back in 2005, but the photo-sharing service

Finding out which friends of yours use Bang With Friends is painfully easy Finding out which friends of yours use Bang With Friends is painfully easy

Hey, you, my innocent-looking Facebook friend. You’re using Bang With Friends, aren’t you. No? Well, thanks to an oversight found by

There was a two week period in 2012 where everybody was talking about Bang With Friends, the Facebook app that connects you to other friends you’ve selected.

But if you play around with Facebook’s URL a little bit, you can reveal all your friends who have installed the app.

How to pick the perfect fitness wristband: FuelBand, Up, Flex, or Basis (comparison chart) How to pick the perfect fitness wristband: FuelBand, Up, Flex, or Basis (comparison chart)

There are four major players in the fitness wristband business now: FitBit, Jawbone, Nike, and Basis. They’re jockeying prices and features to get your dollars, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve created the chart above to help you take the leap.
You should consider three major categories when choosing one of these geek-chic exercise buddies: price, device, and battery life.
Right now, the FitBit Flex is the cheapest, coming in at around $100, followed by the Up at $130, the FuelBand at $150, and Basis at $200. There are, of course, tradeoffs. The Flex can’t tell when you’re on an incline, and while Basis is twice as much, it can monitor other elements such as your sweat and heart rate.
Indeed, the Basis might seem expensive and pared-down on the chart, but it

Windows 8.1 said to include boot-to-desktop option for Start screen haters Windows 8.1 said to include boot-to-desktop option for Start screen haters

Microsoft plans to include the option to boot to the desktop instead of to the Start screen in the next version of Windows, according to
The Verge
One of the biggest complaints about Windows 8 since its launch last October is how the OS pushes you to use the Start screen. Many PC users simply want to use the desktop. The ability to boot to the desktop and bypass the Start screen entirely will likely be included in Windows 8.1 a.k.a. Windows Blue.
Some
recent rumors also suggest
Microsoft is considering bringing back the Start button, another thing users have been clamoring for. (That said, I find these rumors a lot less convincing than the boot-to-desktop option because the Start screen is so important for touch-enabled devices.)

HP’s new Moonshot: 1,800 servers per rack, 3M visitors/day on 720 watts HP’s new Moonshot: 1,800 servers per rack, 3M visitors/day on 720 watts

HP has been looking for a big, ambitious, risk-it-all project to turn its sinking fortunes around, so it’s perhaps fitting that its
new server project is called Moonshot
Today, HP announced that
customers can now buy an HP Moonshot server system
. The company claims that Moonshot use up to 89 percent less energy, 80 percent less space, and will cost 77 percent less than traditional servers.
What does that mean in absolute terms? A single server rack can hold 1,800 Moonshot servers, so you can really cram a lot of the things into a small footprint in a datacenter. Their space consumption is 1/8 that of traditional servers, HP says.

How big brother could make wiretapping mandatory on all VoIP services How big brother could make wiretapping mandatory on all VoIP services

Rachel Greenberg writes about residential and business VoIP solutions and technology for
VoIPReview.org
In mid-January, VoIP service provider VoIP-Pal successfully tested their new Lawful Intercept Technology. Labeled “LI” for short, VoIP-Pal’s intercept technology allows law enforcement agencies to tap into VoIP calls without either the calling or called party knowing. As VoIP gains more and more customers each year, it has become increasingly necessary for law enforcement officials to have access to the same kinds of security protocols with VoIP as they do with analog service.
After the successful test, VoIP-Pal received a patent from the US Patent Office for their LI Technology. Soon, the company will make their technology available to VoIP service providers, who will face growing insis
