Bangalore: Jotting down on reluctant key pad on mobile turned cooler with touch and swipe; being social touched new height with online social media; work on the go with cloud computing. Technology is no more “the geek thing.” Smartphones, tablets, PCs, internet became the very part of our daily life as fashion and food. Where do all these come from?
CEO, Apple When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997 after a 12-year exile, the company was close to bankruptcy. Thirteen years later it has a market cap of $250 billion and is the world's most valuable tech company, transforming whole industries along the way. iTunes reinvented music. Pixar, now part of Disney, elevated animated films. The iPhone changed telecom.

Over the weekend, the NY Times profiled the fact that Sweden hands its official @Sweden twitter account over to a different citizen each week, and lets them control it. It was the brain child of the Swedish Institute and the national tourist agency -- with the idea of showcasing some of Sweden's quirkiness. And, from the sound of the NY Times article, it had been mostly working.
It can be tough to keep up with all the new apps released each week. But you’re in luck: We take care of a lot of that for you, creating a roundup each weekend of some of our own highlights from the week. This week we found an app that lets you instantly get the opinion of a group of people on everything — from what shirt you should wear out tonight to what you should have for dinner, and another that will help get expert advice on any problems you might have, such as a broken computer or clogged toilet. A new app for good Samaritans rewards you for volunteering in your community, and an update to a popular app helps everyone find deals and friends located around them. If you love to take pictures, another new app helps turn Instagram into a game, and organizes your pictures in calendar form. Check out the gallery for a look at some of the highlights from the week, and let us know about some of your own app highlights in the comments.
For the first time ever, more than half of U.S. adults over the age of 65 are online, from surfing the web to checking email, a new study suggests.

We’re connected digitally as never before and the ubiquitous nature of smartphones and tablets only means that the ability to access and share information must become cheaper and faster. This shift in how we seamlessly integrate technology is the byproduct of a cloud computing revolution that’s been led by some of the biggest names in technology, companies like Google, Apple and Facebook. Consumers may associate these companies with their headquarters in places like Silicon Valley. But the world’s computing power is churned out in monolithic data centers spread across the globe. Some of these sprawling complexes consume enough energy to power a small city.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google is facing suspicion and confusion as it tries to persuade people to entrust personal documents, photos and other content to the company’s new online storage service. That became apparent shortly after Tuesday’s unveiling of the Google Drive service. Before the day was over, technology blogs and Twitter users were seizing on a legal clause in the “terms of service” that could be interpreted to mean that any content stored in Google Drive automatically becomes Google Inc.’s intellectual property. The confusion centered on a passage advising that anyone uploading or submitting content to Google Drive will grant Google “a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.”
Instead of repelling service users, invite them to lead research and policy work. Photograph: guardian.co.uk To quote Paul Mason: it's all kicking off everywhere . From the Arab spring to the Occupy movement, a combination of the ongoing economic crisis, political repression and cheap and accessible networking technologies has helped to create a "surge in desire for individual freedom".
On Friday, we got the December jobs number: +200,000. That’s good, but not good enough. I posted a graph from the Hamilton Project showing that, at that rate, the labor market wouldn’t recover till 2024. But perhaps that’s too pessimistic.

The greediest among us in 2011 probably haven’t been any greedier, as a gang, than any greedy of the recent past. They just seem that way. Why so? We have a whole new frame of reference.
