Google has silently updated it AdSense policy.AdSense is a revenue sharing program that helps Blogger and website owners to make money online.

This includes but is not limited to the following: clicking Google ads may not result in a new browser window being launched, nor may Google ads be placed in an IFRAME."

You can find this update in Google adsense policy page under Ad Behavior heading.

Google Wallet - Everything You Need to Know

Google Wallet - Everything You Need to Know
Google Wallet
Google has announced its new service Google Wallet and Google Offers.With this new service Google is promising to make your cellphone your wallet.First question that came in mind is what exactly Google Wallet is ? Google Wallet is an Android app and with this app you can pay with your credit or debit card using your phone.

Actually Google Wallet doesn't meant for making payment only.Actually it is a bundle of packages tied together.Google Wallet is a coupon collector and loyalty card system.With this merchants can offer you to new deals and pay your bills.Google Wallet will allow you to pay things as you do now with credit card.

How Google Wallet Works
Google Wallet is based on NFC (Near Field Communications) and PayPass system.So you'll be able to use it anywhere that's hooked up with PayPass.Google says Google Wallet is "more secure than your wallet," because your credit card is never fully displayed, it requires a PIN to access, and the card data is encrypted.
When you add your credit or debit card to your Google Wallet than first it is verified by the bank that you are authorized user.There is 100$ limit until everything is activated via SMS or email.
Google Wallet works on Android phone with an NFC chip.For non-NFC Android phones, Google mentioned using an NFC sticker.For now Google Wallet will not work with non-android phones like iPhone or window phone.

Google Offers
Google Offers, is a service informs you about new deals.You need to subscribe to Google offers and you will get a new deal in your inbox everyday.You can easily redeem those offers with Google Wallet.You can save coupons to your wallet, whether it's a Google Offer you see on the internet or on any NFC enabled shop's poster.

Google is gonna make money off of this whole enterprise, "like Groupon," since they're not making money off of payments themselves-they want to build the ecosystem and get people using Offers, where they pull in ad revenue.

Toyota Friend - Social Networking Service By Toyota

Toyota Friend - Social Networking Service By Toyota
Toyota Friend - Social Networking Service By Toyota

Toyota is going to launch a social networking service "Toyota Friend" with the help of a U.S. Internet company and Microsoft so drivers can interact with their cars in ways similar to other social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Toyota Friend will work for Toyota Car Owners.In a demonstration at a Tokyo showroom, an owner of a plug-in Prius hybrid found out through a cell phone message from his Prius called "Pre-boy" that he should remember to recharge his car overnight.

When the owner plugged in his car to recharge it, the car replied, "The charge will be completed by 2:15 a.m. Is that OK? See you tomorrow."

The exchanges can be kept private, or be shared with other "Toyota Friend" users, as well as made public on Facebook, Twitter and other services, the company said.

The companies did not give details of how the technology, such as the content of the talking car's dialogues, will be managed. But officials said the answers will be automated through sensors in the car.

If your car is up for an inspection, for example, the owner will be notified through "Toyota Friend," which will in turn automatically link to a dealer to set up an appointment.

Toyota is investing 442 million yen ($5.5 million), Microsoft Corp. is investing 335 million yen ($4.1 million) and Salesforce.com 223 million yen ($2.8 million) in the project.

Many cars are already equipped with navigation and other network-linking capabilities, and can function as a mobile device just like an iPhone or a Blackberry.

Such next-generation cars need to be recharged and so drivers may need real-time information, such as the battery level of their cars and locations of charging stations, more than regular gas-engine cars.

Toyota Friend service will increase the interaction between the Car and owner.Maintenance process will be easier with this manipulation.

Toyota will launch this service in Japan by 2012 and later then worldwide.Service will be offered initially with electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.
