UK lambasts Facebook, Twitter and Google for failing to stop spreading of terrorism online

In the first-ever widespread criticism of the US technology giants and social media platforms, the British Home Affairs select committee has slammed the internet behemoths of becoming a "recruiting platform for terrorism" and "passing the buck.” Led by Keith Vaz, the British parliament's longest-serving Indian-origin MP, the panel rapped Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube, saying the companies were deliberately failing to stop terrorists from using their platforms to promote their sinister agenda, The Telegraph reported. "Huge corporations like Google, Facebook and Twitter, with their billion-dollar incomes, are consciously failing to tackle this threat and passing the buck by hiding behind their supranational legal status, despite knowing that their sites are being used by the instigators of terror," Vaz was quoted as saying.

Groklstyle app developed to make furnishings purchase easier

If you want to buy a table just like the one you saw at a friend's place or in a restaurant or wish to choose furnishings the way professionals do, a new app called Groklstyle developed by Cornell University researchers, including one of India-origin, can help. All you have to do is click a picture of the item and submit it. Given a photo of a chair, lamp or some other item, the new service can tell you who made it and where to buy it from, and show you pictures of how it might look in various rooms. In the future, the researchers said, similar systems might be developed for other kinds of products, such as clothing and fashion. More →
