Startup MovieSwap is seeking to create the world’s largest online video library. MovieSwap is a disruptive and collaborative service that collects physical DVDs from all around the world, puts them into the cloud and allows users to trade or swap and remotely play their videos across their personal libraries. The company, which aims to fight against DVD obsolescence, has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to attract backers and raise awareness.
Just like you can legally lend, swap, or offer a DVD to a friend, MovieSwap works in the same way, but on a much larger scale thanks to its remote playback technology. Users can choose to either send in their physical DVD [...]
We all want that perfect cup of tea or coffee but alas very rarely are able to truly enjoy one or three (yes, we know you’re out there).

An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging ) scan was conducted and it was found that he would need surgery to [...]
After using the relatively new BB 10 OS (well now 10.3 to be more precise) on the Blackberyy Z30 since its launch, we’ve come to the following conclusion:
Well done RIM!
However having said that, we wont be getting into the features and offerings that this new OS has brought but rather a few things we found that it lacked. For starters you cant schedule your messages (emails or SMS). So if you want to be the first to wish your mate a happy birthday but cant stay up till 12 and want to set a time delayed sms , well you cant! Not out of the box with the BB 10 OS.
