A "poorer" brother of Ferrari, Maserati marque unveiled their [url=http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/shanghai-auto-show/maserati-ghibli-shanghai-motor-show-2013]new gun[/url] against Mercedes Benz E-class and BMW 5-series. Look at the pictures, it's a typical Italian design. No sharp edges, fluently flowing design which is highly aerodynamically effective, coupled with the strong engines under the hood and with the latest technologic innovations, it seems the car to beat. I am afraid MB and BMW will not have a quiet sleep. Serves them right!!! :p
I have a technical problem with my password management feature. Webroot is not recognizing my email address, despite the fact that I repeatedly attempted to use it, but each time it was rejected as unrecognizable. So, I sent a ticket to Webroot technical support at 9:50 a.m. eastern time. No response. So, I called tech support at about 2:45 p.m. eastern time and was told by a voice recording that there was better than an hour's wait. I was placed on hold and listened to the music. Half an hour later, I was disconnected. Not good, folks.

[For all of the flexibility and customization that comes with an Android device, there are still plenty of restrictions in place. While Android technically is an open-source platform, the final product is still the result of a phone-maker's skin, the carrier or manufacturer's preloaded software, or even sometimes, a few disabled features. There isn't anything wrong with most out-of-the-box experiences, but more daring and tech-savvy users who tire of being at the mercy and discretion of carriers and handset makers might be interested in pushing their [url=http://www.cnet.com/android-atlas/]Android[/url] devices to new limits.

Tweet, sweet music: Twitter app recommends tunes based on your messages and which artists you follow
[Twitter has released a music service to recommend music to users. The service works with Apple's iTunes and online services Spotify and Rdio to let people listen to music it thinks they will like.

When Nokia first unveiled its [url=http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/nokia-lumia-520-review-50010925/]Nokia Lumia 520[/url] this past February, the Windows Phone proved that Nokia could achieve new lows. That's only when it comes to price, though, not features. As CNET UK discovered while [url=http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/nokia-lumia-520-review-50010925/]fully reviewing the Lumia 520[/url], Nokia has managed to create a very inexpensive handset that will sell in the U.K. for about 100 pounds at full retail price. In U.S. currency, that translates to just under $200 without a contract.

I have been invited by a friend of mine to follow [url=https://twitter.com/Cmdr_Hadfield]Chris Hadfield's Tweet on Twitter[/url]. The man is Canadian Astronaut, currently living in space aboard ISS as Commander of Expedition 35. As many of you know, I am not a big fan of social sites (in fact I hate Facebook but I am quite uncertain about Twitter) but my friend told me that I have to see the tweet because there are amazing pictures of the Earth taken from the ISS daily. I have to admit they are really astonishing and even if I am not going to set up a Twitter account I will surely bookmark this site for my daily visit. Enjoy!

[Take a Windows 8 tablet. Add Nvidia graphics. Mix in a snap-on controller. Toss in a TV-friendly dock.

An interesting article on CNN-Money yesterday is making Facebook look more like Big Brother than every. "For the first time, Facebook ads will target specific users based on their past buying history -- even if the purchases happened offline. Facebook unveiled the new feature for advertisers, called "Partner Categories" on Wednesday." [url=http://money.cnn.com/2013/04/10/technology/social/facebook-offline-ad-target/index.html]Full Article[/url] I think I will go back to making most of my purchases with plain old cash. (Oh, and yes, I generally refuse to give my ID, name, phone number, or any other personal information when making purchases: I keep the receipts in case I need to make a return.)
[b]Posted on: Apr 08, 2013 [/b] [url=http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/springboard/default.aspx]Windows Springboard Series Blog[/url] Today marks the start of the 1-year countdown of when we stop supporting Windows XP. Many of you saw the post this morning on the [url=http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/business/archive/2013/04/08/a-year-from-now-support-for-windows-xp-ends-now-what.aspx]Windows For Your Business[/url]blog. Over the past few months I have gotten a lot of questions on what that means exactly. Here are some answers to help explain what end of support is and what you need to do to move to a modern OS like Windows 7 or Windows 8. [b]Microsoft will end Extended Support on April 8, 2014.

[b]9 April 2013 Last updated at 07:43 ET BBC[/b] A camera able to create 3D images up to one kilometre (0.62 miles) away has been developed by a team in Edinburgh. Physicists at Heriot-Watt University developed a technique which uses lasers to scan almost any object. With extra research, the camera's range could extend to 10km (6.2 miles), the team said. It will primarily be used to scan objects such as vehicles - but is unable to detect human skin. The reason is that skin does not reflect the laser in the same way as most other objects - meaning for those wishing to evade the camera's gaze, stripping naked is an option. Beyond capturing images of objects, the technology could also be used to keep track of the movement of rocks, or foliage growth.
