It seems like just not that long ago, 2 years to be exact, Apple reached a then seemingly impossible milestone, hitting the $1 trillion market cap. Thus, it became the most valuable tech company in the world. Since then, Apple has become worth twice as much, all in the span of two years. Although Apple was not the first company in the world to reach the $2 trillion benchmark, it is the first tech company to do so, along with being the first US company to value at $2 trillion.

Despite the controversies around the name, Google attempts to bring as much comfort and usability to its users as possible. One thing that the internet giant is against are paywalls for content. Many users prefer to browse the net using Incognito mode in Chrome for reasons of privacy. Unfortunately, there was a loophole present in older versions of the browser which allowed websites to detect whether the users were visiting in Incognito mode and many decided to include pages like this: Of course, the “create a free account” is not as free as you think. There is a limit to how...

How to Register Your Site With Yahoo

Search engines rely on an automatic system in order to find and index the sites they show in their search result pages. They do so with the help of computer programs called web crawlers/spiders. Such a system has been proven effective over the time it has been implemented, however, it is not perfect. Without links directing the bots to your site, they may have difficulty finding it. That is why we suggest manual submission of your sites to all the major search engines. Once submitted, it may take two to four weeks for the site to be indexed. In certain cases, manual submission of the site is...

Recently Facebook was granted a patent in the US for a system which detects items like alcoholic drinks and snacks from users’ photos. Facebook plans to turn its users into advertisement stars through this automatic scanning system. Facebook would take those pictures and send them to the respective brands and those brands will use these pictures to post for other Facebook users (if the said brands choose to do this). The way this system works can be explained better with an example: Let us say that you posted the above picture on Facebook. It has Coca-cola, Jack Daniels and Grey...
