Stop iMessage showing people if you read their message

By: Marwan Elwaraki, January 21, 2013

iMessage is a growing messaging service for iOS and Mac users. Although it has some stability issues and is generally slower than popular apps such as Whatsapp, iMessage has proved to be a competing service. It is free for users who own an Apple device and has a few limitations. The aim of iMessage is to replace sending SMS on iPhone but instead send an iMessage.

One of the features that may be disturbing to some users is that people can see when they read their message. So in other words, people will know if you ignore them, unless you don't open the Messages app at all, or if you simple toggle the feature off as shown later in the tutorial.

Facebook: The new menace?

By: Marwan Elwaraki, January 9, 2013
This is a guest post by Liza John.
No sleep, low grades, no class concentration, no focus on what’s happening around, being immensely fond of taking photos and losing potential to do anything good. No, these are not symptoms of being a drug addict; these are simply the symptoms of the new phobia people of all age groups, specially teens and youngsters, the fear of logging out of face book.
What is Facebook?
Yeah yeah, I know how stupid this question is but come on; there have to be people who don’t know what Facebook is. Oh! Who am I kidding? Anyways, Facebook is the hottest social networking website of today and is the most used way of communicating. Facebook is the most must have application on Android, iOS and Blackberry and it is with no doubt the most used social networking website. It’s really easy to use and relatively like real life.

App Store hits 40 billion downloads

By: Marwan Elwaraki, January 7, 2013
Apple just announced that there have been 40 billion unique downloads on the App Store. This excludes updates or re-downloads of apps. Apple took this as a chance to brag a little bit about how successful their App Store now is, and to be honest it is. Here are a few of the later statistics that Apple announced today.

The App Store hit 40 Billion downloads with 2 million downloads in December and almost 20 million in 2012.

There are over 775,000 apps for iOS.

Developers have been paid $7 billion. I find this a cheesy way to word it though as it is the developers that earned the money themselves.

Apple then got a few developers to say how awesome the App Store is. This included the developers of Temple Rub who said that their app has received 75 million downloads in the past year.

Apple also quoted what other developers said about the App Store but it's pointless to include them on my blog. Have you developed any app for the App Store?

How Companies Got Their Names

One of the most reliable portals, Business Insider, has collected stories of the strangest names brands.
And today I would like to share the most interesting of them with you.


At the very beginning Twitter was called Status, and then Twitch.

The working Twitter title was Status. And later the founders turned to the dictionary to find a better

Dorsey explains it to the LA Times: «We wanted to capture that feeling: the physical feeling that you
twitch in the pocket of your friend. This is similar to the around the world buzz. Then we did a few
attempts to find a suitable name and came up with the word «twitch», as a variant of the phone
vibration when something is happening. But «twitch» was not a good name for the product, because
it was not associated with any positive feelings or notions. So we looked up in the dictionary for the
words next to it and ran into the word «twitter», and it was just perfect. Its meaning is "a short burst of
inconsequential information," and "birds chirping."
