Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Others Release Report on NSA Data Requests

Some of the biggest names in technology, like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, have just released a transparency report into the National Security Agency’s (NSA) data requests. Other tech giants like Yahoo and LinkedIn have also joined the group under new U.S. government rules that allow each company to report on how many requests each company received from the NSA for member data, the percentage each company responds to, and the number of accounts impacted.

Within the last half of last year, Facebook only reported a “small fraction” of a single percent of their users were targeted by the government agency data requests. The social media giant also said that the same “small fraction” of one percent was true for the six months of 2013.

Ladies and gentlemen, dessert is served.
Android Ice Cream Sandwich
Google unwrapped its new Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system at an event in Hong Kong this week. The OS is a massive step forward for Android, bringing a revamped design and staggering number of fresh features into the platform.
So what exactly is new with Ice Cream Sandwich, and what'll it mean for you? Here are answers to all of your most pressing questions.

What looks different in Android Ice Cream Sandwich?
So much has changed with Ice Cream Sandwich, it's hard to know where to begin. The first thing you'll notice with ICS is its completely reimagined design, especially compared with Gingerbread and other past phone-centric versions of the platform.
Ice Cream Sandwich is an evolution of the holographic interface introduced with the Honeycomb tablet OS earlier this year. It has a far more sleek and polished look, all the way down to a brand new font created specifically for the software (Google calls it "Roboto").
Android Ice Cream Sandwich Interface
With ICS, Google is trying to give Android users a more intuitive and consistent experience. Gone are the hidden and layered menus of commands; instead, an on-screen "action bar" presents you with contextual options relevant to the specific process you're performing.

Top Five Newest Smartphones

We check out the best high-tech phones in the market and here is our result:

1. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

It doesn't have the 5.3-inch screen of the recently released Galaxy Note, but the Nexus is no lightweight either, boasting a 4.6-inch high-definition screen and 1.2GHz dual core processor. The real attraction, though, is the fact that the Nexus will be the first smartphone to show off the new Android 4.0 software - also known as Ice Cream Sandwich - and will include advanced new features such as face-recognition to unlock the phone.
