Really old story, but still...
Let me tell you a story about a QNX-based computer that ran 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 15 years. The computer was running just fine until… well, I’ll get to that part in a minute.
The story begins in the mid 1990s, when a paper manufacturing company installed the computer to monitor pressures, temperatures, and a variety of other parameters at a rate of 5000 times per second. A few years later, the company installed a second QNX computer and configured it as a hot standby for the first. That way, if the first computer ever went down, the second one could immediately take over.
For more than a decade, this safeguard proved unnecessary. But recently, the second computer reported that it could no longer communicate with its partner. Assuming that a software error had occurred, the company called in an IT consultant to fix the problem.

But what they really needed was a detective.
While Google is shutting down Nexus One and some of its services like Knol, the smartphone vendors think what features can be added to the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the devices and (is it worth to make those updates at all?), XDA-Developers adapted ICS to the first Google Phone - HTC Dream. It came out ok for such an old device.
Here are the device’s features for those who have forgotten. Apparently, the developers keep on doing a quite workable integration of this first alpha.
We are continuing the series of posts in the blog Google Inside Search, revealing the features of Google search algorithms, as well as detailing all the modifications thereto, the Corporation’s Lead Engineer, Matt Cutts posted on the official Google Blog the latest 10 changes made to the ranking system, which became effective over the past couple weeks:

A small group of like-minded developers has introduced alpha version software that lets run Android applications on Windows.
The developer’s mission from the company BlueStacks is well expressed in a fun demo video, which can be viewed on the front page of the company: bluestacks.com/home.php. We strongly recommend watching the high quality demo.
It is unlikely that someone would complain on this trip: a team of Google employees recently has traveled across the Swiss Alps to photograph the Albula-Bernina line that is considered one of the most scenic rail routes in the world, and it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The route is known for its mountain sceneries that starts from a Swiss commune Thusis and goes through St. Moritz to the Italian border in Tirano. The panoramas have made with the support of Rhaetian Railway that will appear on the "Google Maps” soon.
Often, there are tasks that require to map a tree structure of interaction of any entity. For example: navigation through the file system, menu of the site or the content of the textbook.
Cinemagraph was created during New York Fashion Week last month.
The rising stars Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg are the duo that stands behind the wildly popular Tumblr blog From Me To You.
(Some people might say that these stars have risen considering their recent campaign with Ralph Lauren and Juicy Couture, a photo-article in the New York Times and the appearance in Lucky Magazine, but we are confident that this is only the beginning.)
