The new iPod Nano has all the old features intact with the new features added to it.The extra features are added but the size remains same and which makes it even more interesting.The new iPod Nano you have a small video camera player and I feel it is an astonishing triumph of technology.Some technolgy experts feel that this effort by Apple is mainly because of the reduction the iPod users but I don't feel so.
The other major features in iPod Nano is FM radio. This up gradation is the most expected by the users and finally it has come out.The new Nano iPod price is $149 for the 8-gigabyte model and $179 for the 16 GB version.I feel it is a bit costlier than expected.Well people who feel you can spend that much will surely have a treat with this.
The technical advancement is so high that we are heading to a world where we will soon see Robots doing operation with the help of Artificial intelligence.Hunterian Museum of the Royal College in England has organized a medical camp for surgeons where they will explain the places where robots are used in the field of medicine.
Doctors are now having surgical instruments and are doing the operations,but very soon robots will be doing that with human assistance.This is totally based on Artificial Intelligence and scientist feel that if that state is attained there will be more precision in the operations carried out.
PROBOT is the name of this project and this idea was started long back in 1988.Since then the process is take one step further but but due to lack of funds the whole idea gets hampered.RI-Man is one robot which I admire the most.It could lift a patient carefully and the main idea was to use this kind of robots as night duty nurse.Unfortunately due to lack of funds this project got shutdown,but they are coming up with a better version called RIBA.Well but very soon we will see a world with robots.
The RIMAN was so famous that it made in to the Time Magazine best invention list in the year 2006.The Robot Saya is another great find since the robot can teach school kids.What I personally feel is that lack of fund is what is hampering these kind of research oriented projects.

Yahoo are now trying their luck in micro blogging platform with Yahoo Meme.Yahoo launched this micro blogging platform in Spanish first and then Portuguese and now finally in English.This is mainly started as a competition for Twitter.
Yahoo Meme is similar to Twitter and Tumblr since you can search in others public profiles and you can post some others entry by clickcing the Repost button.I personally feel that Yahoo Meme lacks something special so that people stop using other services like Twitter and start to use Yahoo Meme.But Yahoo has high hopes on this new micro blogging platform YAHOO MEME
