Nearly three months before founder of openplaces.org Fred Lalonde detailed about the Maps API in a tweet that Apple had bought the company that produced it.


Openplaces uses software API called Pushpin made by the company Placebase (similar to Google Maps) and among no response from the company regarding this, makes clear, only this company what Apple bought?

It was featured on GigaOM last year, it is a mapping service and has the world mapped out.  You can zoom in and out and it has different layers you can superimpose over your mapping data.  Added with things better than the existing one called PushPin

•    offering customizations and tons of features that integrated private and public data sets in many diverse ways
•    offer a way to layer commercial and other data sets (such as demographics and crime data) onto the maps using an easy-to-use application programming interface (API).

It all makes anxious, What Apple is to proceed with it?

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
