Bing for iPhone Gets Barcode Scanner and Basic Twitter and Facebook Client

first_imgTags:#Microsoft#news#search#web Not only did Bing arrive as a new search option in Apple’s iOS4 update yesterday, but Microsoft also just launched a new version of its native Bing for iPhone app. The app now features a RedLaser-like barcode scanner and an enhanced social search mode that highlights results from your social network on Twitter and Facebook. In addition, the app now also features a basic Twitter and Facebook client.Twitter Client and Social SearchThe Twitter/Facebook client is very basic and only allows you to respond to tweets, retweet and post new tweets. The app does not feature a URL shortener or any other advanced features. Chances are, you wouldn’t want to use the Bing app as your standard Twitter and Facebook client, but the features are good enough to allow you to interact with your friends when their Tweets and Facebook status updates appear in your social search results. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Barcode Scanner: Fast, Easy – But With Limited ResultsThe most interesting feature addition to the Bing for iPhone app is the barcode and cover art scanner. With this, you can quickly scan a barcode an any product with the iPhone’s built-in camera and compare prices at different online retailers. In our short test, the app was able to read barcodes pretty easily – even on an iPhone 3G without autofocus. While RedLaser and ShopSavvy sometimes take a while before they recognize a barcode (especially if you don’t have a very steady hand), the Bing app quickly latched on to any barcode we threw at it. Sadly, though, the shopping results in the Bing app can’t compete with those in ShopSavvy, for example. While Bing only returned 3 results for this book, ShopSavvy returned over 50 results, including 15 from local brick and mortar stores. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

PH notches win in Tokyo

first_imgJayson Castro William. Photo from Fiba.comStruggling big time in the second half on Friday night, Gilas Pilipinas went to its two most reliable guns when the chips were down to score a 77-71 decision of Japan in the first window of their Fiba Asia 2019 World Cup Qualifying series at Komazawa Olympic gym in Tokyo.Jayson Castro and naturalized player Andray Blatche stepped up big and averted a collapse by the Filipinos, who bungled first half command with a lethargic third quarter and even trailed the under-rated Japanese twice before pulling this one out.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Keys to victory: Ateneo-La Salle Finals series Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 MOST READ Read Next Castro, voted best point guard in Asia twice, hit five straight points inside the final 1:50 that extended a 70-66 lead to a safe margin as the Filipinos gathered some momentum heading into their second match in three days.The Filipinos plane back home Saturday and will have very little time to cool their heels as they take on Chinese Taipei Monday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBlatche epitomized the Filipinos’ offensive struggles but still had the guts to take over at the crunch, hitting a big triple that opened up an eight-point lead halfway through the fourth before issuing two critical feeds the rest of the way.Even with Blatche finishing with just three points after the first two quarters, Team PH still took the half comfortably and looked very fluid until several dry spells in the third allowed Japan to take a 40-37 lead.

WBO review backs up Jeff Horn’s win over Manny Pacquiao

first_imgThe World Boxing Organisation (WBO) has concluded that judges were correct to name Australia’s Jeff Horn the winner in his bout against Manny Pacquiao last week after the controversial points decision in Brisbane sparked calls for a review.Horn took the Filipino great’s welterweight world title after judges scored the bout 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113 in the 29-year-old’s favour but many observers questioned the outcome, saying the officials had made a “hometown decision”.The WBO agreed to review the decision and on Tuesday released its results, which backed up Horn as the victor.”The Jeff Horn vs. Manny Pacquiao bout results were controversial, causing disputes amongst fans. For this reason, transparency is so important,” the WBO said in a statement.”Based on this, five anonymous, competent judges from different countries were asked to watch the bout without sound.”To determine the winner of each round, three out of the five officials have to be in agreement.”From the results, it can be established that Pacquiao won five rounds while Horn won seven rounds.”While there has been talk that 38-year-old Pacquiao may retire, a rematch was written into the contract for the initial fight and the pair are expected to face each other again later this year.Former schoolteacher Horn, who improved his record to 17-0-1 after the win over the eight-division world champion, said he felt vindicated after the WBO’s statement.”It gives me evidence behind me that I can just use now,” he told reporters at Brisbane Airport on Tuesday. “Instead of saying I think I won the fight, now a heap of other people – professionally – think I won the fight.”advertisementHorn will be attending the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday.last_img read more

Colin Cowherd Releases Light-Hearted Farewell To Iowa And Its Fans

first_imgFS1's Colin Cowherd.Iowa’s loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship knocked the Hawkeyes out of the College Football Playoff chase, though the team still earned the No. 5 ranking and a spot in the Rose Bowl opposite Pac-12 champion Stanford. All season long, Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd has mocked the Hawkeyes and challenged their credentials. He’s called the team overrated and “a fraud” even as it started off 12-0. Today, in typical Cowherd fashion, he got in one final parting shot at the black-and-gold clad program and its fans. Cowherd released a light-hearted video set to the tune of Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You.” He stares wistfully into the camera as lyrics poking fun at the Hawkeyes’ wins over lesser opponents play. My heartfelt message to Hawkeye Nation https://t.co/OizoLJnYeu— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) December 8, 2015For Iowa fans still looking for a reason to be mad at Cowherd, here’s another alley-oop for  you, straight from the man himself.last_img read more

Grace-Lee Bolt and Alex Gray are this year’s recipients of Guardian Life Limited’s Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) Top Girl and Boy scholarships.The students, who will be attending St. Andrew High School for Girls and Campion College in September, have received $250,000 each, to cover the full five-year period of study at secondary school.They were presented with their awards, which included a gift basket and a certificate, during a ceremony held today (August 23), at Guardian Life’s head office on Trafalgar Road in St. Andrew.Eight children of employees also benefited from $250,000, each under a programme launched by Guardian Life, which will cover the full five-year period at secondary school.In addition to the GSAT scholarships, the entity has provided grants valued at $25,000 each to 11 staff members’ children who sat the examination.
