Yeah you read it right! The biggest social networking website Facebook, which has over 500 million users, has added a feature that might help in rescuing someone from attempting suicide!

Facebook added this feature in conjunction with Samaritans, a registered charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone who is distressed or is at a risk of suicide. The Samaritans started charity work in UK & Ireland. But in the recent years, it has expanded its work to many countries...

Today I was just browsing through the net and what I found really made me say “<em>yikes!”</em>.  The manufacturers have correctly named this ultimate bike as yikes, because that is what every one who sees it is going to say. Actually this is an electric bike but not just another one. The design of the bike catches everyone’s eyes on the road. So I just thought that I should share this with you guys. Here are the specifications of this awesome electric bike –

Guinness Records confirms that Microsoft Kinect is world's fastest selling consumer electronic gadget ever. I'm sure even Microsoft didn't expect this and anyone would have assumed it would be an Apple product like iPhone, iPod or iPad. Looks like Microsoft beat Apple at least in creating a product that people really love. Ever since its launch,...

I know most of us are addicted to smart cards and may not have more than just few bucks in our pockets. While the plastic money is taking over our wallets, the paper currency won't go away anytime soon. LookTel's developed and released an app for iOS devices that helps blind people count money. This app can instantly identify objects and identify the bills (from $1-$100) instantly using a special object recognition technology. The app instantly reads out the value.

Hey friends, ever wondered how the bottles are produced? Well they are actually produced by the ‘balloon way’. I remember it that way. It is actually an easy process and a little common sense is needed. Now you must be wondering how a balloon which is spherical in shape can be converted to a bottle which is a hollow cylinder?
Blow molding is a process of producing hollow cylinders using a plastic molding technique. You must be remembering that 19th century saw the advent of industrial...

The world is suddenly witnessing a sharp and surprising decline in the Helium-3 availability! This stable isotope of Helium plays a crucial role in MRI lung research, low temperature experimental physics and the most crucial neutron detectors!

He-3 is an isotope of Helium gas that is used in party balloons. One neutron is missing in this isotope compared to the He-4 which is made up of 2 neutrons and 2 protons. The lighter isotope, that is the He-3 is rare in nature and is also a...

These days we hardly find any steam locomotive running carrying bogies. The first electric locomotive was built by Robert Davidson way back in 1837. After that the electric

Recently there has been a quest among the researchers to make a large high energy particle accelerators. But the exactly opposite happened at the MEMS 2011 conference last week. In the conference held at Cancun Mexico, the researchers put forth their efforts to design a small particle accelerator.

Cyclotron is basically a particle accelerator that speeds up the electrons in a spiral path. The chip size cyclotron designed by the researchers can guide the Argon ions with an energy of 1.5...

Nokia recently launched E7 in India and the latest price is Rs. 35019. E7 tries to combine the best of business smartphone and a personal entertainment phone. The phone however fails to impress with the technical features and the price point. Given the competition, we believe Nokia should rethink E7's price. There are better phones available in the market below Rs. 30,000 and it's no brainer that Nokia will have hard time selling it to the target audience. Yes, this phone is for Nokia fanboys...

HP's CEO Leo Apotheker today admitted that the company had lost its soul and it takes too long for HP's innovations to reach to the market. The company will try to get it back by making every PC they manufacture compatible with WebOS along with standard Windows installation.



HP acquired Palm - the company that created WebOS for the 'Pre' devices. HP plans to attract larger base of developers to its own operating system by offering an integrated experience over the...
