Apple today announced a 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad, which boasts a Retina display and with double the maximum storage.

Rumors began to swirl last week that the Cupertino, California-based technology giant would dish out a new tablet with increased storage capacity, but it was thought on the most part that the device would be rolled out during the March refresh of tablets--or that the rumors were bunk.

Instead, Apple took to the wires to announce the new tablet today, which complements the existing 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB tablets in the iPad 4 range.
It also comes a day after Apple released the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 6.1, which includes support for the 128GB storage model, further support for more 4G LTE markets including Nordic states and Middle Eastern countries, and a range of security fixes.
Apple vice president of marketing Phil Schiller said in prepared remarks:

An Atheist's Letter To Nigerian Muslims; El Rufai's Tweet Didnt Result In Riots

Dear muslims,
Salaam,

We are all Nigerians, whether muslim or christian or pagan. We are all one irrespective of tribe or religion. However, I write this letter with anger and disappointment. I am disappointed and angry at the ease at which extremists have found a stronghold within the religion of islam and have used it to cause terror and mayhem to people in the north. This issue of islamic extremism is really dividing Nigeria into different parts faster than tribalism or the greed for oil have ever done to Nigeria. Concurrently, I am going to use the christian response to El Rufai's tweet concerning Jesus to highlight a possible solution to this case of religious extremism. I believe that muslims can learn from our christian brethren's reactions to the tweet.

LOL! 10 comandments for a youth to be successful


Got this online and i felt i should share it with y'all. 

1. Do not depend on ur parents' wealth. Someone may come tomorrow to dupe you and you will lose everything. Learn to do things on ur own.
2. God has given everyone a talent. Pray about urs, discover it, and work on it. Then it will work out for u.
3. Do not just sit down and ping, tweet, facebook while others are making money with their talents. Be wise for once, the owner of these things are using us to make money.
4. Its good to appreciate good things, but learn to appreciate it wisely and stop arguing unneccessarily about football and players. When will people argue about you also? Think!
5. Don't feel like a don for sleeping with too many ladies, they won't make ur destiny fufiled as some are filled with badluck.
6. Learn to get a lady close to you to be successful as they say: without a woman,a man cannot be successful.
7. Learn to solve problem on ur own, its a good way of making it in life. Don't copy others, tap little from them and modify it.
8.Stop drinking and smoking too much as it may damage ur life too much. Do it socially.
9. Learn to have a good heart, help people around you if you have the power as they'll use their heart to bless you.
10. Think about impossible things, try to make it possible. Bigger people started from somewhere.

Do you agree with these commandment?

Pathetic: Pictures Of The Nigerian Police College, Ikeja

The Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, Lagos State is the first in the country. In a recent video report by ChannelsTV, the very deplorable situation of the College is shown in the following images. While posting this, I cannot but wonder what our leaders have been doing. It is a big shame indeed upon the Nigerian government and all their supporters

You will see the male dormitory 10, constructed in 1940 by colonial masters with its incredibly hellish looks (yes, it looks like hell). The toilets are abhorrent and the bathrooms? I wonder how they manage to take their baths in there.

You will also see some students urinating at the back of the building where the drainage system has broken down completely.

Here, police recruits will spend 13 months for training. In 2013, a sum of N311 billion naira has been budgeted for the Nigerian Police. Enu kalokalo naa ni gbogbo re n lo. There are 7 police colleges in Nigeria and a total of 18,500 constables graduated as at December 2012.

The College once had an Olympic-size swimming pool which is now a breeding ground for toads. It used to win medals for shooting all over West Africa but there is no shooting range anymore.

According to Jonah Mavah, the Deputy Commandant of the College, there has been no major development since establishment except for some few renovations.

The College itself was built for 700 students but today, it contains 2,554.

As for the library, the Staff says they cannot remember the last time books were supplied to the library which is full of museum pieces and antiquities called books bought in the 1970s.

Facebook launches search engine for shared content


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the social network’s beta tool — Graph Search — is available today in limited release. It’s a bigger search bar, within Facebook, that allows members to type in natural language queries and access people, photos, places, and interests embedded within 1 trillion connections. “We look at Facebook as a big social database,” chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said in announcing the so-called “graph search” function. “Just like any database, you should be able to query it.”

For example, users could search who among their friends have recently bought shoes or eaten dinner in a certain city — the theory being that Graph Search could disrupt the business models of platforms like Yelp, Foursquare, or Google Local.

For now, Graph Search isn’t capable of tracking Facebook posts or Open Graph actions like song listens, which means that the few hundred thousand people who have it will be able to only partially use it. Already, analysts and experts are questioning why Facebook is treating this announcement like a big deal. Predicting that Graph Search could become a major threat to Google and Amazon

The search engine aims to help members better navigate the vast amount of information on Facebook, which is not available on Web search engines such as Google.
