Quicksilver App Launcher For Mac Hits Version 1.0 After 10-Year Beta | Cult of Mac: "Remember Quicksilver? The lightweight Mac utility used to be the go-to app launcher on the desktop, but that was years ago. A lack of updates combined with the rise of more feature-rich alternatives like Alfred turned the attention away from Quicksilver long ago.
Now the developers behind the app are breathing new life into Quicksilver with a major update. Quicksilver 1.0 has been released, which marks the end of the 10-year beta period the app has been in since 2003.
Quicksilver allows you to easily launch apps and special plugins with programmable keyboard shortcuts. ‘We’ve worked to simplify Quicksilver and add great documentation (a new manual is coming out!), meaning Quicksilver can be picked up by anyone much more easily than before,’ said Patrick Robertson, one of the app’s developers."
T-Mobile finally gets the iPhone | Mobile - CNET News: "T-Mobile USA will offer the iPhone on its network at long last. The company announced the news at its 'Uncarrier' event in New York today. T-Mobile will begin selling the iPhone 5 on April 12 for a $99.99 down payment, and also will offer the iPhone 5 without a contract. Customers who want to finance the phone will pay $20 a month for 24 months. CEO John Legere emphasized that with T-Mobile's new rate plans and the cost of the device, consumers will save more than $1,000 on the iPhone 5 compared to owning the same device over two years on AT&T's network. T-Mobile will offer previous iPhone models on its network, such as the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 will also operate over T-Mobile's 4G LTE network."

Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environmental Office told the Associated Press that, "going on visual reports," the flash was "a single meteor event."
"The thing is probably a yard across. We basically have (had) a boulder enter the atmosphere over the northeast," he added.
The object lit up Twitter last night at about 8 p.m. East Coast time, with numerous people registering their surprise and excitement. And of course, a bogus photo or two appeared as well, triggering hasty retweets and retractions, as well as at least one amusing parody shot featuring an astro cat.

Schmidt: One Google OS to Rule Them All Not Happening Soon | Operating Systems | TechNewsWorld: "Recent leadership shuffles regarding the people in charge of the Android and Chrome operating systems don't mean that an OS merger is on the horizon, according to Google's Eric Schmidt, who was asked about the subject this week during an overseas trip. The company could be waiting for Chrome to gather more momentum, but with desktops and mobile devices sharing more, Google may have to make a decision sooner rather than later.
Google will keep its Chrome and Android operating systems separate, but company executive chairman Eric Schmidt reportedly said this week the two will have more features in common."
