Apple’s Data Center Makes A Google Maps Appearance



data-center

Apple’s new data center in Maiden, North Carolina, is now visible in Google Maps. The building hasn’t changed at all – it’s the same constriction we’ve seen in different shots during the past months. But it is interesting that only now Apple allowed Google to display the data center in theirs Maps service after Apple’s announcement concerning the WWDC where Apple confirmed that Steve Jobs would appear at the conference keynote and that the company will unveil the iOS 5, OS X Lion and iCloud. It seems that such sudden appearance of the data center in Google Maps may be a confirmation of Apple’s intention to use this massive facility for iCloud and cloud-related services.

Friskies makes iPad web games for cats



app for cats

Yes, it’s true! Now it seems that our pets may really play a game developed for them by Friskies. Originally, discovering that cats liked to play with the iPad was just a matter of coincidence – а cat  just liked to bat around the Magic Piano, and that was fine. But pet food maker Friskies has blown that idea right out, releasing a line of three full web-based games for the iPad meant to be played entirely by cats. Cat Fishing!, Party Mix-Up! and Tasty Treasures Hunt! are all games accessible for the iPad, and all three of them are designed to attract your cat's attention. Friskies even warns that while cat claws can't scratch the iPad's glass screen, certain plastic covers might get scratched, so be careful.
