MySpace is Making a Comeback

I know it might sound like the very early 2000s (I promise it’s not) but MySpace is trying to make a comeback in the social media market. While this is not the first reboot, it does look to be a more promising attempt than past efforts to rebrand the once relevant social media platform. The new site, which can be previewed already, does have a sleeker look, and is being rebranded as more of a hangout for creative types. The question is will it work?
MySpace had a strong following around a decade or so ago, but in the recent years has suffered a huge loss in membership activity. Due to the rising success of Facebook (which has ironically become a lot like MySpace, flaws and all) MySpace suffered at the hand of other social media platforms. It couldn't directly compete with Facebook’s popularity, yet offered nothing unique that users could gather around like Twitter, Instagram, or any other newer social platform. With that said, is a facelift the only thing this plagued brand needs?

Google Nexus VS the Kindle Fire 2 Tablet

While everyone talks about the next generation tablets, only few understand how these differ in terms of their specifications when it comes to comparative advantage of one over the other. Different competitors are trying to take over the revenue market share as well as the market share for potential consumers. In this June when Google announced its Nexus 7, the rumors were that it is going to take the top place in the tablet market given its excellent features and will give tough time to its competitors including iPad and kindle. However, this did not come very true. Kindle still is at the top as it has the mix of features of iPad and Nexus put together in the small package. The good thing is that it not only comes in small package but also has a variety of accessories as well. For example the famous kindle covers coming with the kindle package are excellent for the little good angel’s protection.Screen Size

Incredible World - the augmented reality translation app for Android review

Android users will heave a sigh of relief. Better late than never, the Word Lens app is available for the Android platform.
More about this app This app will be of great respite when you are in foreign land and you cannot comprehend what a sign conveys. This real-time app will translate the same for you. This augmented reality app does full justice in translating almost anything like signs, a paragraph from a newspaper and items on a menu from one language to another in no time. 

However, it is not recommended to use this app to translate huge paragraphs at once. The Word Lens app works wonders when you use it to translate signs and content that does not run into many paragraphs.
It must be admitted that Word Lens is not the first of its kind language translation app available in the market. This app faces tough competition from its predecessor -Google Goggles. Word Lens comes with its price tag; yes it does, while Google Goggles is available for free. However, Word Lens is worth the pri…
