The Swede has Sundbäck Gideon’s invention certainly changed our lives, Sundback has finally invented the now ubiquitous long zipper. Today he would be 132 years old, Google honors the Swedes so with a witty doodle.
Who today on the ‘ Google Home ‘surfing is there once again facing a very changed and funny side. The lettering of the search engine company looks as if it were embroidered. Far more striking: In the middle of the site is a zipper that can be drawn down and then, as is common with the so-called Doodles, is providing information about the honored person or the corresponding event.
The virtual zipper can drag and drop back and forth, it “pulls” the Google homepage, search for Gideon Sundbäck and finally presents the information “behind” the zipper. The Google search box can be used in a normal way, despite zipper.
So we know who has done this (hugely important) Invention: Gideon Sundbäck (1880 to 1954) made this in 1913. However, he was not the first who came up with this idea, before other inventors experimented with similar closure means. Sundbäck but is regarded as the father of the modern zipper, because you can use the system, including for clothing. But his invention was initially limited to the use and was later further developed.
With the search engine giant Google Doodle honoring repeatedly reminded of celebrities or historical or other memorable events. The first doodle was created in 1998 at the Burning Man festival on the Google homepage, presented, these were a slightly modified version of the (then) Google logos.

As you know, one of the modifications included in the recent redesign Google + includes the alternative of using a single wide picture on our profile, rather than the five previously put images (which may still be used). This new option allows for some creative assembly but not everyone has the skills to make them.
CoverPhotoEditor is an online tool that enables us to create these images. We not only create the image format suited to Google +, but also remove the avatar of the background image, so that both background and avatar are integrated. I think the catch is clearly what I mean (which is optional by the way: everything can go it alone).
Both the avatar and the background banner can be downloaded separately. The service has some modest editing capabilities that allow us to add text, shapes and change things like brightness and contrast. If we do not have anything that we like, we can use that we offer on the site, which are shown before entering the editor.
A free easy to use and allows us to generate images for our profile quickly. Furthermore, unlike other (and at least for now), does not insert any watermarks, or the banner background and not on the avatar.

Open warfare in the courts that maintain Apple and Samsung could end in a civilized manner after both companies this week to accede to their s CEO, Tim Cook and Choi Gee-sung, they feel to talk to try to reach an agreement. A trial judge in San Francisco mediate during discussions with the intention of stopping at a crossing of patent lawsuits that already spans more than twenty cases in ten countries.
The decisive meeting will take place within 90 days and more than one strain can kill for an ear to see what terms are developed. Especially considering it started when Steve Jobs decided to start a crusade against Android focusing on ending the Korean for “blatant copy” of the iPhone and the iPad.
Samsung of course has not been settled, and even while their CEOs are prepared to discuss, lawyers are toiling in their work by submitting a new application that covers eight patents affecting virtually the entire range of Apple products: from iPad iPhone and the Mac, Apple TV, and iTunes icloud.

Although Apple has made continuous efforts to respect the environment, it seems that they have paid to Greenpeace. The organization, in one of his reports called How clean is your cloud?, Said directly to Apple for using energy “mostly dirty” to power the servers of icloud. Amazon and Microsoft also are listed as companies that do not use clean energy in their “clouds”:
Greenpeace refers to the energy from the coal consumption, material which provides much of the energy of the data centers. Apple is preparing a farm of solar panels for your data center in North Carolina, but according to the environmental organization would contribute only 10% of the energy needed and simply represents “a good first step.” In the report, Apple gets a pass rascadísimo in transparency, efficiency and renewable energy, and has a failing infrastructure.
It must be said that, using the huge amount of money Apple has in its coffers now, would be nice to see some investment in ways to minimize the environmental impact they cause their data centers. At the same time, Apple is not alone in this game, and so far can not be accused of having made numerous contributions to save the planet. And I speak not only of solar farms or products without aggressive materials, but “details” like product boxes as small as possible or the introduction of stores like the Mac App Store, although it seems silly that we save millions of boxes and optical disks.

Those of you with an Apple Store near you may know from personal experience or that of a relative or friend: the Genius Bar did not put many obstacles to replace a broken iPhone with an identical immediately (always depending on the fault that has the iPhone, of course). Well according to sources 9to5mac and due to a shortage of white units of the iPhone 4, it appears that in some Apple Store are changing units damaged by white iPhone 4 iPhone 4S units of the same color.
Of course, when the rules indicate that Apple must replace the iPhone and no stock of the exact model you have the client, no other. The iPhone 4S is a model ships repaired, but it’s still a substantial improvement in performance compared to the iPhone 4 you had before. Of course, all this happens when the iPhone 4 that presents problems under warranty.
The bad news is that the shortage of units of the iPhone 4 white only affects the United States and Canada, so now you can remove the coat again and forget the intentions of “having an unfortunate accident” with your iPhone 4 white. I’m afraid the idea would not have worked anyway.

Shortly before the ultimate call of the European Commission, the so-called data retention directive finally transposed into German law, controls the duration of conflict between the FDP and the Union on an escalation.
Although Chancellor Angela Merkel, the main contenders Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger (FDP) and had Hans-Peter Friedrich (CSU) has warned the end of March communicate, to keep the fronts remain hardened, told the news magazine ‘Der Spiegel’ in its current edition.
The Minister of Justice blocked the development of a new law establishing a Vorratssdatenspeicherung some time. It belonged to himself with the plaintiffs, who brought an already existing scheme two years ago before the Bundesverfasungsgericht case.
Merkel Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger tried in person, to bring a change of direction. The minister had sent again but only after their alternative proposal of a so-called quick-freeze model for the coordination of the ministries involved.
Thereafter, available telephone connection data is stored only in specific cases of suspicion. For Internet data, it proposes a store without occasion, but only for a week. Interior Minister Friedrich is in contrast with his view that this model does not satisfy the requirements of EU Directive and therefore could not prevent the threat of proceedings before the European Court of Justice. For this one without occasion, six-month storage of connection data was necessary.
Against this background, the CDU and FDP are likely to be difficult to come before the end of the period from Brussels to a common result. Germany therefore threaten fines totaling several million euros to the EU. However, the policy adopted there is also under fire after the constitutional courts of several other EU countries, their governments have also prohibited the implementation.

Canon had not forgotten the world of film and video. Your new EOS 1D-C is the expected version of the Canon 1D-X focused on video recording, so it is directly subsumed in the division Canon Cinema.
The new Canon EOS 1D-X hit the market with a full format sensor with 18 megapixel resolution and dual-processor Digiv V. This configuration will work very well because the new Japanese SLR with video dares to 4K resolution. That is the main reason.
This resolution is achieved by compressing 8-bit MotionJPEG 24p. If you choose the video recording at 1080p, can reach 60 frames per second and export the uncompressed video stream via HDMI (YCbCr 4:2:2).
Although Canon has not given details of the price of this new “movie camera”, we hope to be around $ 10,000.
