Welcome to Techotv Fast news episode 5. This week, some of the hot news have taken reverse direction while some on their due direction. Lets take a look at hottest news of the time!
1. No Google Maps officially submitted to Apple’s app store : Earlier, some sources claimed that Google has already submitted for inclusion of Google Maps in iOS apps store but recently Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman, has rebuffed the claim. He also said that Google and Apple are constantly in talks to bring to users a greater map experience. ==> Reports also indicate that Apple has been hiring ex-Google maps employee to strengthen Apple Maps. Well, boy, we’re not going to get official Google Maps app for iOS any sooner.
2. Google and Yahoo might row boat together in future. Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google, said that he’d love to have Yahoo switch to Google as official search partner. ==> Where does that leave Bing? We don’t think this is gonna happen but you never know!
3. Evan Williams, Twitter co-founder, thinks that tweets views and retweets value more than the followers’ count. ==> Dear Evan, we all know this but isn’t this true that the more followers you have, the more views and retweets you’re likely to get? Well, we do know you’re talking about the quality thing but we’re already aware of this. Tell us something new.
4. No messages leaked on to timelines : Says Facebook. Facebook officially confirmed that private messages are safe and are not displayed on any of the profile’s timeline (Earlier, few fb users had reported that their years-old messages were displaying on their timeline). Few fb users are confused between their old posts and messages. Old posts didn’t have likes and comments buttons and that made the wrong impression of being messages. ==> Thank God! I feel safe now ;)
