Dismissal of Ticket for Driving in Google glass

(CNN) -- It may have been the most anticipated traffic court date ever. Southern California resident Cecilia Abadie appeared in San Diego traffic court on Thursday for speeding and for wearing Google Glass while driving. It is considered the first time someone has been cited for wearing the face-mounted technology while driving. Commissioner John Blair threw out both charges, stating there wasn't enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Google Glass was turned on at the time. It is only illegal to wear the device while driving if it is operational. Abadie was pulled over in October for speeding by the California Highway Patrol. The officer then cited her for wearing Google Glass under California vehicle code 27602, which prohibits operating a video-display in front of the driver's head rest where it can distract the driver. The law was originally drafted to keep people from watching TV while driving. Google Glass is Google's early version of a head-mounted computer display. A small square monitor sits above the right eye, just out of the normal line of vision. To view information on the display like a map or text message, the wearer must look up. Google Glass defenders claim Glass is safer to use while driving than a smartphone since it can be voice controlled and you only have to glance up to view the Glass display

Facebook Boss- Mark Zuckerberg



 Mark Zuckerberg      
  • Cofounder, Chairman and CEO, Facebook
  • Age: 29
  • Source of Wealth: Facebook, self-made
  • Residence: Palo Alto, CA
  • Country of Citizenship: United States
  • Education: Drop Out, Harvard University
  • Marital Status: Married

The 29-year old CEO and co-founder of the famous social media Facebook  has net worth of $19 B as of September , 2013- this clearly show that age does not determine impact in this world but determination and self discipline.

Hear what Powerful People(October 2013) had to say:

The hoodie-wearing CEO has over one billion "friends" but he's expanding his influence with lobbying group FWD.us, which advocates for immigration reform and technology education. Zuckerberg donated 18 million Facebook shares, worth $500 million at the time, to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in December 2012 for education initiatives.

Also Forbes added as at September, 2013.

Mark Zuckerberg foiled doubters with a strong return to the Top 20 of The Forbes 400. Thanks to strong mobile ad growth, shares of Facebook have more than doubled in the past year, helping to erase the sting of the company's botched IPO in May 2012. The hoodie-wearing CEO expanded his influence beyond Silicon Valley with lobbying group FWD.us, which advocates for immigration reform and technology education. One of the more generous figures in tech, Zuckerberg donated 18 million Facebook shares, worth $500 million at the time, to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in December 2012 for education initiatives.

Billonaires: March 2013 Reported:

Few CEOs of any age are under more media scrutiny than 28-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. Since taking Facebook public in May 2012, the hoodie-wearing founder has seen his net worth rise and fall with every fluctuation of the stock price, which fell under $20 in August 2012. The stock has since rebounded more than 30% as of February on confidence that Facebook may end up figuring out how to make money on mobile ads. Zuckerberg, a signatory of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett's Giving Pledge, showed his generosity during the holiday season, gifting 18 million Facebook shares to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in December for education initiatives. Based on share prices at the time, that gift was worth nearly $500 million and was one of the largest gifts to education in 2012. Zuckerberg has also expressed his willingness to become more involved in the political sphere, hosting a re-election fundraiser with his wife Priscilla Chan for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in February. His big early 2013 exploit was the launch of Facebook's Graph Search, which will allow users to comb their friend network based on shared interests and experiences. 

The war for mobile customers rages- AT&T offers T-Mobile customers $450 to switch





     vs      

It looks rather daunting but its true, AT&T who recently grew bigger than T-Mobile threw a mind-boggling $450 at T-Mobile's customers to switch over to AT&T .AT&T is already bigger than T-Mobile for crying out loud. But that isn't stopping Ma Bell from trying to lure T-Mobile subscribers to switch to AT&T.
CNN Money reports thus:

The war for mobile customers is heating up with AT&T making this pitch directly to T-Mobile customers: Switch to us and get $450.

It's not cash. AT&T (T, Fortune 500) is offering T-Mobile (TMUS) refugees a $200 credit per phone line, plus the chance to trade in their smartphones for up to $250.
It's the latest in the battle between AT&T and T-Mobile, the underdog that's been hounding its larger rival on every front.
With its very public "uncarrier" strategy, T-Mobile has set its sights on AT&T as well as Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500). First, T-Mobile eliminated contracts, opting instead for customers to pay lower monthly rates and buy their own phones. Then came the "Jump" program, which allows customers to upgrade phones twice a year. Then T-Mobile killed roaming fees and slashed per-minute and text charges.
AT&T is fighting back by appealing to T-Mobile customers' wallets. AT&T declined to say how long the $450 offer would last, citing competitive reasons. The company wouldn't say how many customers it expects to gain from the pitch -- or how much it would cost.
T-Mobile did not immediately respond to requests for comment. But CEO John Legere addressed rumors of the AT&T offer Thursday night on Twitter. "I guess we are making AT&T a bit nervous," he wrote.
T-Mobile is currently the fourth largest wireless company in the U.S. But it has always been viewed as a possible takeover target.
In fact, AT&T and T-Mobile agreed to a $39 billion merger in 2011 but AT&T wound up scrapping the deal once it became clear that regulators would block it. Now there is speculation that Sprint (S, Fortune 500), the nation's third largest carrier, may want to buy T-Mobile.
Shares of T-Mobile fell nearly 4% in early trading Friday. But the stock is up more than 20% in the past month due to the reports of a possible Sprint takeover. To top of page

So folks as we have seen this won't be the last we will hear of the war that rages between the two underdogs who so aggressively competes after each other.

The Great African Hero- Nelson Mandela

Biography


Rolihlahla Mandela was born into the Madiba clan in Mvezo, Transkei, on July 18, 1918, to Nonqaphi Nosekeni and Nkosi Mphakanyiswa Gadla Mandela, principal counsellor to the Acting King of the Thembu people, Jongintaba Dalindyebo.
His father died when he was 12 years old (1930) and the young Rolihlahla became a ward of Jongintaba at the Great Place in Mqhekezweni. Hearing the elder’s stories of his ancestor’s valour during the wars of resistance, he dreamed also of making his own contribution to the freedom struggle of his people.
He attended primary school in Qunu where his teacher Miss Mdingane gave him the name Nelson, in accordance with the custom to give all school children “Christian” names.
He completed his Junior Certificate at Clarkebury Boarding Institute and went on to Healdtown, a Wesleyan secondary school of some repute, where he matriculated.
Nelson Mandela began his studies for a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University College of Fort Hare but did not complete the degree there as he was expelled for joining in a student protest.
He completed his BA through the University of South Africa and went back to Fort Hare for his graduation in 1943.

Shares of Microsoft jumped in late August on news that Steve Ballmer will step down as CEO; Gates will remain chairman of the software company. He and Warren Buffett have thus far convinced over 100 of the super rich to sign on to the Giving Pledge, a promise to donate at least half one's net worth to charity.

Below is a report by Forbes as at 2013 on Gates:

Bill Gates remains atop The Forbes 400, a perch he's held since 1994, despite giving away $28 billion, most of it to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He's also again the world's richest person, having reclaimed that title from Mexico's Carlos Slim earlier this year. Gates bolstered his foundation's efforts to eradicate polio in April, securing $335 million in pledges from six billionaire comrades, including $100 million each from Slim and Mike Bloomberg. Shares of Microsoft jumped in late August on news that Steve Ballmer will step down as CEO, but Gates will remain chairman of the software company he cofounded in 1975 with Paul Allen. His stake in Microsoft represents less than a fifth of his fortune. Gates' investment firm, Cascade, owns chunks of tractormaker Deere & Co., Canadian National Railway and Mexican Coke bottler Femsa.
