In fact, Microsoft has already withdrawn technical support and security updates for the aging browsers, as we speak. To top it further, Microsoft has issued a warning for users using the older versions of IE that you’d probably get your PC infected with a virus if you continue using their old stuff.

With the introduction of the Facebook Like, we’ve seen how the internet is adopting this particular technology in their business.

Facebook plans to launch it in the near future, and I’m already keen to know what this dislike button would do?

Nevertheless, it looks like Google isn’t ready to let go of their Glass project just yet. The Mountain View company was found to be hiring engineers and software developers from Amazon’s Lab126 to work on their Glass project. Furthermore, the Glass has been renamed to Project Aura, according to Business Insider.
