    Google in the usual fashion of launching products and services via a "field trial" or beta, launched their much anticipated stab at social networking Google+.

    Touted as "Real-life sharing rethought for the web," Google+ is essentially Google's own Facebook. The fundamental difference between Facebook and Google+ seems to be their places of origin. Facebook was a result of Myspace, Friendster, and other social networking sites ...

    Google may have created the death knell for Adobe's Flash, but for now the interesting piece of code known as Swiffy, that can easily convert Flash files into HTML5 friendly ones, remains locked up in the Google vault.

    Swiffy allows Flash authors to run flash code through it, and splits it into a JSON file, then renders it with HTML, scalable vector graphics, and cascading style sheets (CSS). The ...
