TWIL - Week #9
This Week I Learned:
- Microsoft is the first multinational company to make public cloud services available in China.
- One of the reasons for the delayed capture of the Boston Marathon bombers was that the databases contained a misspelling of the suspect’s name — “Tsarnayev” instead of Tsarnaev — and two incorrect dates of birth.
- Wall Street Journal columnist, Walt Mossberg is considered the most influential technology critic in the world. He used to be a journalist covering national and international affairs but (in 1991) switched to consumer technology, a field where he had no educational or professional background, while he was in his 40s.
- With a population of 1.2 billion, India has one sixth the world's population. Bangalore is currently the third most populated city. The Comparisons section of a WolframAlpha search provides a better perspective of facts by making analogies.
