Pocket - The article saving service now has premium service

If you read articles online, than chances are, you know about Pocket, a service that allows you to save articles for reading later. Pocket is one of the services which I personally love using and if you love reading online and still not using Pocket, I will recommend you sign up for the free account.
Pocket was a fully free service, but now they have introduced a premium service with some additional features for the ones who are willing to pay and want to do more with the app. This is surely fair enough, supporting developers for such a wonderful service.
The plan starts from $4.99/month or you can go for a little more saving with $44.99/year.

bye bye Springpad, closing down services

Springpad shutting down
Just a few days back I got a mail form Springpad, describing that it is shutting down its services from 25th of June. From that day the Springpad will not be available online and the sync services in the mobile apps will stop working. Springpad is now providing the option to save the content by downloading an offline copy of all the content in HTML format, which you can open in any web browser. The other popular option which most will prefer is a direct import to Evernote.
You can save your content on Springpad by visiting the Save My Stuff page on Springpad.
There are rumours that it is more of an acqui-hire by Google and it looks like being conformed by Springpad team that now it is moving to Google. The team will be working on Google’s Play Newstand app, which Google recently launched as its main news aggregator.

Google’s car has no steering wheel

You must have heard of Google’s self driving car up till now, the cars that drive by themselves, without any need of a driver.
Google has been working on this car from quite some time now, it has already traveled around 700,000 hours since it was first started in 2009.
It’s an all electric car so the only source of energy is the electrical energy and it is already evident that electric cars are the future.
Google’s self driving car runs on with software, sensors and GPS working together in sync with each other, so as the car drives itself the steering wheel or pedals or even an accelerator is not needed and is absent in the new prototype.
Just push a button and the car starts driving, you just need to sit on the car and relax and with all the usual driving stuff missing you can use the driver’s seat as a new seat in the car to sit and relax, maybe you can keep a check on the car, whether the car is driving well or not.
