Mariah Carey pays touching YouTube tribute to Whitney Houston

Mariah Carey has paid a poignant tribute to her late friend Whitney Houston by putting together a compilation of their performances together on her official YouTube page.
The singers had teamed up to record 'When You Believe' for 1998 movie 'The Prince of Egypt' and the track went on to win Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

The two of them remained friends over the years and Carey cancelled an appearance on U.S. TV earlier this month after hearing about the demise of 'How Will I Know' hitmaker.

Now the 41-year-old has shared her memories of her dear friend Houston with her fans in a new video of clips posted on her official YouTube.com page, the Daily Express reported.

"RememberingWhitney... Whitney, my friend, I love you, I miss you. Your legend lives on forever," she tweeted. (ANI)

2012 Volkswagen Beetle to arrive in India

Volkswagen has officially announced that they will be bringing the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle to the Auto Expo in January 2012. The company will also use the Auto Expo platform to highlight their BlueMotion technologies and its fuel-efficient cars as a part of the company's 'Think Blue' campaign, which was introduced this year with the launch of VW Passat.2012-Volkswagen-Beetle-1
The VW Beetle in its 3rd generation was first seen on the sets of a popular American talk show and was later officially unveiled at the Shanghai Auto show and the New York Auto show. The 21st century Beetle has been built using the Golf IV platform and the new model will feature some significant changes in terms of design and aesthetics. The new model is 152mm longer, 84mm wider and 12mm shorter than the current model. It improves the rear headroom and bumps up boot space. The typical round headlights of the Beetle will now don an optional bi-xenon headlight with LED daytime running lights. The company is most likely to introduce the new Beetle with three engine options - a 2.5-litre 5-cylinder engine with 170PS of max power, a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine with 140PS of max power and a 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged Sport model with 200PS of max power. A 6-speed manual will be standard while the 6-speed DSG will be an added option. For India we expect the 2.0-litre diesel mated to an automatic gearbox, since the combination is already present in various VAG cars like the VW Passat, VW Jetta, Skoda Laura and Skoda Superb.
The company has not yet revealed any plans to launch the new Beetle in the Indian market. But we are expecting the company to launch the new 2012 VW Beetle in the first quarter of 2012 to contend in the premium small car segment which is about to expand with the upcoming Mini brand.

New app reads you your Twitter feed

Justin-Bieber-Twitter-Feed An app developer has developed a hands-free device that reads you your Twitter feed such as when you are driving or cooking and have floury hands.
Released earlier this month, the 1.99-dollar worth 65MB app dubbed 'Tweet Speaker' is being downloaded in the thousands, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The app has adjustable reading speeds and supports Airplay and creates "a live podcast of your tweets,'' according to App Cubby.

Coupled with the Horn Bike iPhone speaker, cyclists are in in Twitter heaven. For the rest of us, an ordinary pair of ear buds takes care of any privacy or noise issues in a crowd.

Now play CityVille on Google+

Zynga added its most popular title -- CityVille -- to games that can be played at the Google+ social network recently launched in a challenge to Facebook.facebook_farmville_freak_cityville_by_zynga

"It's no secret we're big fans of Google+ here at Zynga," the San Francisco-based startup said in a blog post.

"Last month we announced that we partnered with Google to bring Zynga Poker to Google+, and today we're excited to add CityVille+ to the new game platform," the message continued.

In August, Google+ opened a gaming zone at the fast-growing social network vying with Facebook to be the hub for people's online lives.

Along with global game sensation Angry Birds, the initial array of offerings available at Google+ included Bejeweled Blitz, Zynga Poker, and Dragon Age Legends.

Intel aims to lower PC power consumption by 300 times

Intel Corporation today said it is working on a host of futuristic technologies that would improve the power efficiency of PCs 300-fold in the next 10 years, as well as ensure the security of data and user identities.

Speaking on the final day of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2011 here, Intel Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner said the company was developing technologies to take computing to the next level, with better performance and lower power consumption.intel-2
Energy efficiency was a key theme of the three-day IDF summit this year and a number of Intel executives demonstrated the efforts being taken by the company in this regard. The move assumes significance in light of consumers gravitating toward always-on computing devices with a greater degree of mobility.

Rattner said that Intel's multi-core technology, in which more than one processing engine is built into a single chip, has become the accepted methodology for increasing performance while keeping power consumption low.

These technologies would enable faster web access, improve PC user security and reduce the requirement for wireless infrastructure to provide the optimal online experience, among other benefits, he said.

Rattner demonstrated a new technology for better PC security, wherein users would be able to see images and other data on social networking sites and other platforms only if the computer recognises his or her face.

The technology will enable parallel cryptographic and facial recognition services to improve security on Ultrabooks and traditional notebooks, besides desktop PCs, with the help of Intel microprocessors, he said.

Intel was also collaborating with China Mobile to replace existing "costly base-station hardware used on cell towers today with a fully programmable and far more cost-effective, software-based PC alternative", he noted.

Rattner revealed that Intel Labs was working on a new 'Near-Threshold Voltage Processor' that has enabled an experimental Pentium-class processor unit to deliver five times better energy efficiency levels, with the ability to run a processor with a solar cell the size of postage stamp.

He said the extreme-scale computing technologies that Intel was working on would help achieve the goal of a nearly 300 times improvement in energy efficiency levels in the next ten years and potentially even a 1,000-fold improvement in the future.

Rattner also disclosed a new JavaScript solution that could speed up browser-based content such as 3D games by up to eight-fold and said that Intel would also soon launch the world's first processor with Many-Integrated Core (MIC) architecture, which promises to revolutionise high-performance computing.
