Google’s next iteration of Android wasn’t quite the full-point release jump that many of you were perhaps anticipating. Rather than using Google I/O 2012 as the launching pad for Android 5.0, we’re being formally introduced to v4.1 — a mere 0.1 ahead of where Ice Cream Sandwich placed us around six months ago. Aside from grabbing a name change, the minor numerical bump also provides Jelly Bean the opportunity to usher in a few new features for Nexus owners to enjoy.
If you missed yesterday’s keynote, Google revealed that Android 4.1 would arrive on Nexus devices in [...]

Last year, back in April 2008, Facebook introduced Chat to communicate with our friends in real-time right from the Facebook website. For some it proved quite useful, but some people didn’t liked it and keep themselves offline.
Earlier, I used Facebook Chat a lot, but as my friends list got bigger, it started getting annoying that every time I log in Facebook to check my wall, messages etc, 4-5 friends would come by just for a casual chat.
If I go completely offline, I can’t even see those who come online. Looks like this application, Be Invisible!, has finally solved my problem.

This is bad: since yesterday, PlayStation 3′s around the world have been unable to function online or, in some cases, offline. It’s an issue that’s effecting the original PS3, not the PS3 slim, but it’s pretty bad nonetheless.
All online games are unable to be played, as are PSN games that require DRM authentication from servers. Even some offline games like Heavy Rain are unable to be played.
Sony is aware of the issue and claims to be working on it, but the consoles are still down as of this writing.
Its a Tuesday and the Apple Store has gone offline around the world, so there is a pretty good chance that we will see some new products from Apple today, the most likely one would be a new MacBook Pro range with new processors.
The new MacBook Pro’s are likely to feature Intel’s latest Core i5 and i7 processors, and could also possibly come with 3G, which would be a major change for the MacBook and something a lot of Apple fans would like.
We will keep you guys updated as soon as we know what Apple are updating, lets hope it is a new range of MacBook Pro’s.
