According to Bloomberg, Yandex – Russia’s largest search engine – will have its location-search service integrated in the latest version of Apple‘s software used in the iPhone and iPad sold in Russia.
Apple has developed its own maps tools for users of the new iOS 6 replacing the Google maps service.
Alexander Patsay, director of program management at Moscow-based software maker Parallels Holding Ltd., said he has tested the developer version of iOS 6 and noticed that its Maps application is integrated with Yandex’s geographical search.
“When you search for Vladimir Lenin’s Mausoleum, it offers you to get more details on Yandex.Maps application or offers to download the app from App Store if the user doesn’t have it installed.”
The iOS 6 system will be available for download on September 19. Cupertino, California-based Apple said today orders for the iPhone 5 topped two million units in the first 24 hours.

Recently, Apple revealed the latest — and in its words the greatest — version of the iPhone: iPhone 5. The competition is – and has always been – huge between Samsung Galaxy and iPhone. And though Samsung lost the patent battle against Apple, but it doesn’t mean they quieted down.
In a new ad shown to Mashable that will start running in various national and regional papers on Sunday, Samsung – the Korean electronics giant – has stacked the specs of its Galaxy S III smartphone against the newly-announced iPhone 5.
The tagline of the ad: It doesn’t take a genius.
Obviously, Galaxy S III has a much longer list of features than the iPhone 5, and its main advantages over the iPhone are HD resolution, RAM and Talk Time, + NFC (near-field communications) technology, which is not included in the iPhone 5.
Also, pay attention to the last feature of the iPhone 5 – a totally different plug – it’s the key feature and the main advantage of the new iPhone 5.

Microsoft has changed their logo.
Everyone would remember the old one: black, bold, Sans-Serif font:
The new version of Microsoft logo uses a symbol for the first time of the company’s history. It is a square made of four smaller squares of different colors. It reminds Microsoft’s Windows logo, however, it is straight and doesn’t look like waving flag.
New logo is softer-looking and more colorful. It uses Segoe font which looks softer and lighter than the previous font and is more grey than black. As in the previous version of the logotype, in the new one as well, the last two letters -f and t – are linked each other.
Microsoft’s new logo is already used in the site Microsoft.com.. Compare:
Well, I like the new logo, what’s your opinion?

According to Facebook Q2 2012 Earnings Report, the social media giant updated some figures. Well, you won’t see any $ or financial data, we’ll take a look at Facebook users and accounts:
In 2 years (Q2 2010 – Q2 2012) Facebook Users reach 955 million from 482 million. The growth is 473 million in 2 years. Let’s see how many users in average have been registered on Facebook:
However, let’s have a look at this quarter’s performance:
Now, out of that 955 million user accounts a total of 8.7% or 83 million accounts on the network are ‘fake’. And, of that 8.7% there are duplicate accounts (4.8% – 46 million), user-misclassified accounts (2.4% – 23 million) and undesirable (spam) accounts (1.5% -14 million).
83 million fake accounts, by the way, Germany’s population is almost the same…
In March 2012, Facebook claimed about 5% to 6% of its accounts (or 40.3 million to 50.7 million) were fake. So, more than 30 million ‘new fake’ accounts are out there. However, the company also says it bans at least 20,000 accounts daily and estimates about 600,000 accounts per day are compromised. So, according to the latest figures, Facebook’s 955 million active users would reach 872 million.
Yes, time will show…

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and in short it is the process of getting more ‘organic‘ or ‘unpaid‘ traffic and higher rankings on search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. It considers how search engines work, what are their main criteria. So let’s discuss how it works.
Say I am searching for ‘electronic cigarettes’ on the web, for example on Google. In this case ‘electronic cigarettes’ is the keyword and ‘Google’ is the search engine. When I type the keyword on Google’s search bar and hit the enter, it returns an endless list of webpages, images and videos etc corresponding to my keyword. Each of the results surely contains my keyword and I can open each one to find what I am really looking for. The chances certainly are much higher that I will choose a website on the first, second or third page than on the 10th or 200th.
Search engine optimization is managed to increase the visibility of the website in these search results and get more traffic. If you manage a proper SEO strategy, it will increase your website visibility and your website will appear on the first search engine result pages, you will get more traffic, more potential clients and more sales. This means you increase your profit.
