Amazon is becoming amazing. No there not changing their name but they are adding a new amazing delivery strategy called Prime Air that promise to get your package to you within 30 min of order. This is now tested in a number of cities in the United States.

What i like about this is not just how convenient is the method but how innovative it is. You see this is what a competitive market do to service where it makes them more innovative. Wish more innovation happens where i live. Great thinking Amazing Amazon :)

old facebook

So yesterday night i was payed a visit by an old college friend we shall call “Zee”.

Zee and i go way back, we lost touch for a long time but where in-touch again ironically thanks to Instagram ;)

We watched a movie “The Social Network” which i posted about back in 2011. Click here.

In the movie there are screen shots of the first generation (Edition) of Facebook is shown and it reminded me of it and i started to miss it :(

the possibility to check out your regional network was great but its not there anymore, many features disappeared with no logical reason. every since FB got more and more complicated it popularity is on the down fall. I bet if Mark Zuckerberg went retro he will jump up again.

Amazing Features in Latest Google Translate App [Apps]

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Google Translate has always been my to-go website / app for various translations from and to different languages and I thought that was perfect enough.. until this.

I’ve been stumped when I’ve learnt Google Translate’s latest features and I though they were too good to be true, but when I’ve tried these features first hand, they’re real and they kick a**!

 

Translate Texts From Pictures

It’s exactly what it says, the latest feature within Google Translate’s App (on Android platform so far) lets you snap pictures of multiple lines of texts, the app then automatically detects legible texts and underline them, you highlight what you want to be translated from that text with your finger and click go. a couple of seconds later and you’ll see the translation on your screen. Heaven!

Some of you might think of this as another Word Lens – like app, but it’s not and the variety of languages within eliminates all sort of comparison between the two.

Translate Texts From SMS

Another useful feature is the ability to translate texts you’ve received through SMS. Steps are fairly simple, click the options menu, select Translate SMS and click on the SMS you want to be translated. DONE.

Can’t wait to see what’s next, as for now, click the link here to get the App from the Play Store. (Again, Sorry guys it’s Android only for now)
