Google Reportedly Set To Acquire Mapping Rival Waze For $1.3 Billion Google Reportedly Set To Acquire Mapping Rival Waze For $1.3 Billion

The Google-Waze acquisition deal is going the $1.3 billion route.
According to sources of Israeli financial newspaper
Globes
, the search giant, which is also behind the popular
Google Maps
service, is set to acquire the Israeli social mapping and navigation startup for $1.3 billion.
The deal comes after months of
reports
claiming that Waze would be purchased by either Google or Facebook, with Apple rumored to have been involved as well.
Back in January, Apple was rumored to be looking into buying Waze. But Apple CEO Tim Cook himself said during his interview at the recently concluded D11 conference that his company
did not make a bid
for Waze.
Then, last month, it was reported that Facebook had been in “advanced talks” to acquire Waze. But discussions between the social networking behe

Amount 2.0 Features A Good Amount Of Improvement To Make Unit Conversions Easier Amount 2.0 Features A Good Amount Of Improvement To Make Unit Conversions Easier

The
simple conversion app
Amount
has just been converted to version 2.0.
Released in September last year, Amount has been my favorite iOS conversion app since I
discovered
it last February. And it’s been so mainly on account of its unusual yet effective conversion flow.
You see, Amount is so named because the amount you want to convert takes precedence over any other consideration in the app. As I explained in my
previous post
about the app:
Upon launching Amount, the first thing you have to do is to enter, well, the amount you want to convert. Only then do you have to specify the measurement category in which you want that amount to be converted. The app then shows the conversions for the amount in the different units under your selected category.

Ahead Of WWDC, Apple’s iOS 6 Is Installed On 93 Percent Of iPhones Ahead Of WWDC, Apple’s iOS 6 Is Installed On 93 Percent Of iPhones

Ahead of its forthcoming WWDC keynote, at which Apple is expected to announce its next-generation mobile operating system,
recent data from Chitika Insights
reveals that iOS 6 is presently installed on 92.7 percent of all iPhones in North America. Despite the impressive figure, however, it’s also surprising to hear that versions of the iOS as old as iOS 3 are still being used on a small fraction of iPhone handsets.
While almost 93 percent of iPhones are indeed now powered by iOS 6, 5.5 percent run iOS 5, 1.7 percent run iOS 4, and a minute 0.1 percent run Apple’s archaic iOS 3.
An even smaller fraction of iPhones not covered by the report, we might add,
are already running iOS 7
Apple’s iPad follows a similar trend, with 82.9 percent of iPad users presently hooked up to iOS 6, 13.4 percen

Recently, we told you about an upcoming

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel Now Offering 24-Carat Gold-Plated iPads For In-House Guests Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel Now Offering 24-Carat Gold-Plated iPads For In-House Guests

Burj Al Arab, the world-famous sail-shaped luxury hotel in Dubai, has just begun offering 24-carat gold-plated iPads to its in-house guests.
I repeat: 24-carat gold-plated iPads.
As noted by

The gold iPads are fashioned from third-generation iPads by Gold & Co. The London-based manufacturer of gold-plated products

of its partnership with “the world’s only seven-star hotel”:

Facebook’s New Share Dialog For iOS Features Streamlined App Activity Sharing Facebook’s New Share Dialog For iOS Features Streamlined App Activity Sharing

Facebook has just

Introduced just last month as part of Facebook SDK for iOS 3.5, the Share Dialog can be implemented by developers in their iOS apps with just a single line of code. But exactly what does it do anyway?
Well, the Share Dialog enables users to share activity from apps without the need to log in to Facebook first. As a result, this does away with the one to three steps usually required to log in before being able to share from a Facebook-connected app.

The lock is powered by a set of 4 AA batteries that should last more than a year with normal use. Before the batteries run dry, Kēvo will offer a number of low battery warnings.
