Is Social Media a Fad?

May 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Online Social Networking has had a significant impact on the lives of people by and large. It has transformed the way we connect and has propelled  baby faced geeks like Mark Zuckerberg to the  billionaires club.  As we get used to this paradigm shifting movement, it is time to ask the following profound question :

“Is Social Media a fad or the biggest shift since the industrial revolution?”

Although the short clip is not without an agenda–it wants to prove that we’re on the brink of a social media “revolution” from which there’s no turning back–the statistics presented in the animated short are hard to ignore.

Here are just a few of the notable social media stats:

– 96% of millennials have joined a social network.

– Social media has overtaken porn as the number one activity on the web.

– 1 out of 8 couples married in US met via social media.

– The fastest growing segment on Facebook is females 55 to 65 years old

Fizzik: A new baby in the world of browser !


You don’t see many startups these days trying to innovate with new Internet browsers. After all, that’s an area dominated by the likes of Microsoft, Google, Mozilla and Apple. So, I was immediately intrigued when I bumped into a new browser which not only provides you all the features available with most of the browsers these days, but goes miles away in terms of multi tasking and smoothness. While exploring further about the company, named  Spry Hive Industries, I found that team of ex-Microsoft workers have built a new browser called Fizzik, which is entering a public beta today. Here’s the demo

As you can see in the video, the most interesting feature is the split-screen functionality which integrates content from YouTube, Twitter or other content sources. Is that enough to win you over?

Windows 7 based Project got killed !

May 5, 2010 2 comments

With the end of April, one of the most anticipated project by HP has been end, reported by TechCrunch. It has been informed by TechCrunch that Hewlett-Packard allmost killed off its much ballyhooed Windows 7 tablet computer, says a source who’s been briefed on the matter.

The device was first unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at CES 2010 in January and was supposed to hit the market in mid 2010. But source from TechCrunch informed that HP is not satisfied with Windows 7 as a tablet operating system and has terminated the project (something CrunchGear mentioned months ago).

HP may also be abandoning Intel-based hardware for its slate lineup simply because it’s too power hungry. That would also rule out Windows 7 as an operating system.

So what will HP use as an operating system? Look for Google-powered devices, which have already been announced. And HP really does seem determined to make a go of the Palm WebOS. They said how important it was to them yesterday, and they will likely experiment with porting it to a slate-type device.

Will WebOS emerge as a successful operating system for tablet devices? That seems very unlikely given the dominance of the closed Apple OS and the likely success of the open Android and Chrome operating systems from Google. To get traction from third party developers with WebOS HP will need to sell a lot of units. And it’s not clear what they’d gain from all that effort, anyway. HP knows how to build and sell hardware, not operating systems.

Let us know your comments on actual story behind. Here’s the video promoting the HP Windows tablet from January:
