Facebook has recently improved its security for mobile users with features that were desktop exclusive before. An interface redsign, improved payment system, and App Center are all new features. Android login has also changed a bit. Other new features include Reporting Content and Account Recovery. This seems to be part of a larger push by Facebook to imrpove its mobile interaction. 



I decided to choose this particuliar article because it affects me. I use Facebook on my phone, so any mobile changes will affect me. Also, new security measures allow me to feel a slight bit better about Facebook. Hopefully there will be more steps to making mobile Facebook more enjoyable and safer.

We know deflating and disgusting it is to sour milk. Well know there is an app to help you to remember to get more milk. The milk is in a new jug where the amount of milk and quality are monitored. When the amount is low or the pH levels are bad, your phone will send you a text. You can also just simply check up on your milk through the app too.



I chose this article because I thought it was pretty cool. I am not a big milk drinker but using technology to eliminate everyday hassles is something I think is overdue and innovative. I hope more apps like this due come out.

Airport restaurateur OTG is looking to add iPads in airports across the nation. The process has already begun and they are used to order food, check in with social media, and use any other app they can. OTG says all personal information is deleted at the end of every session.



I chose this article because I tend to fly often and many times I have no idea on what to do to pass the time. These iPads seem like a step towards making airports more "fun". I hope to see more news like this.

Facebook has revealed its mobile App center in efforts to improve its mobile business. It is said to allow for personalization for each person by tracking your behavior and giving suggestions. This is probably one of likely new innovations due to the pressure of to please new owners. The company looks to focus on mobile.

Ever have the problem of having a conversation and listening to music at the same time? Well the new earphones from AIRbudz might just solve that. These new buds allow for ambient noise to enter into your ear with being changed by your music. These are prototypes for now and come in small, medium, and large



I chose this article because it addresses a constant problem of mine. I have trouble keeping a conversation while listening to music. This might just solve it. I will be looking to see if these really work when they drop on to the market.

People can now buy more than 2 iPads at once! The restriction has been gone in some places for a few days now. However, online customers will have to wait till June 11. This is likely due to the fact of surplus of iPads available to demanding customers.



I decided to choose this article because I thought it was interesting. The iPad restriction makes it very difficult for customers who were looking to buy multiple iPads at once for their friends and family. I hope that this resolution stays in place.

With this years E3 in full force, we focus our attention onto technology especially video games. Here are the new trends.



Hardware doesn't drive business anymore. New consoles aren't going to be coming out every year.



The big-name games drive the game business. Sequals are often and frequent.



Streaming game delivery isnt big but it's coming.



There is still space for new games. 



Mobile/social games are joining the big leagues.



 



I chose this article because I like to stay on top of my video game news. These trends will likely change the dynamics of video games for the next few years and influence the next set.

The Wii U is the first console of the next generation and the first non-handle from Nintendo since the Wii. There are still may unknowns such as price, internal specs, specific release date, and more. Here is what we do know:



The focal point of the Wii U is the controller. The controller houses a 6" screen accompioned with dual analog sticks and all of your standard buttons. The console itself supports HD, up to 1080p, and has a myriad of ports for cables. A new processor and graphics card are there too. 



 



I chose this article because I am a big gamer myself. I have owned a host of nintendo products of the years and everytime there is new one, I find it exciting. It is also the first next-gen console, so that too is exciting. I hope more information comes out in the coming months.
