No more cd or usb stick. Boot Linux from your phone with drivedroid.
This little utility is a geek's dream!

"Throw away your USB sticks! Forget about Linux install CDs! Be ever-ready for any data transfer or OS installation need! Install DriveDroid. 

The premise behind DriveDroid is simple. It turns your phone into a USB drive. The application can either use an ISO file (e.g. to make a Linux boot CD - the application includes links to download these from the app itself) or you can create 'empty images' which effectively turn your device into a fully read-writable USB stick.

I tested the application with both those different scenarios - I booted Ubuntu on my machine using only my phone and a microUSB cable and I plugged my phone into my Mac whereby it appeared as an empty USB drive (100MB, because that's the capacity I chose) and I was able to copy files to it, unplug, then plug back in and pull the files off. Awesome!

The application is available in free (ad supported) and paid (80p) versions, although it's recommended that you download the free version to check compatability with your hardware before purchase.

I tested using my HTC Butterfly - all good - let us know how you get on!"

Looks like the new apple maps isn't so great, not everything is about just making things pretty. My opinion it may be OK but nothing compares to Google maps.

Google makes another acquisition. It will be interesting to see how it's incorporated.
Welcome Nik Software!

Today I’m excited to welcome +Nik Software to the Google family! We want to help our users create photos they absolutely love, and in our experience Nik does this better than anyone. Check out the examples from some of the world’s greatest photographers, and you’ll see what I mean.

This week we also hit an important milestone--over 400,000,000 people have upgraded to Google+. It was only a year ago that we opened public sign-up, and we couldn’t have imagined that so many people would join in just 12 months. While Google+ is all about creating a better experience across Google, it’s also a destination. And here too, I’m happy to report that we have just crossed 100,000,000 monthly active users on Google+ (plus.google.com and mobile app).
