Bill Gates to reinvent the Toilet
Posted by Calciu Cosmin on july 20, 2011
Hey guys,

The man who revolutionized the Personal Computer Industry is putting his efforts - and foundation - to revolutionizing toilets. Microsoft founder Bill Gates said he will dedicate 42$ million towards the reinvention of the toilet.

Water hygiene and safe waste disposal are two of the biggest causes for infant mortalities in the developing countries. Gates and his foundation hope to create inexpensive toilets to grately improve the living conditions of millions of people.

"No innovation in the past 200 years has done more to save lives and improve health than the sanitation revolution triggered by invention of the toilet," said Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the president of the Global Development Program at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. "But it did not go far enough. It only reached one-third of the world. What we need are new approaches. New ideas."

About the Twitter API
Posted by Calciu Cosmin on july 09, 2011
Hello,

Twitter, this microblogging service with a strange name is one of the most used web service to date.

Twitter is a website that allows many options, but they offer a limited functional option. The imposed limit of 140 characters per post foces the user to be very brief. This can make some feel limited, and find this service not very useful. Others, however, feel very free within this limit and embrace this limitation with a great passion.

So, for those interested in developing applications for Twitter, I have attached below a tutorial about their API:
