There are plenty of valid reasons to not play too many video games, but the idea that you rot the brain already can not be one of them. The Wall Street Journal reports on a new study by scientists at the University of California, San Francisco shows that "older adults improved cognitive controls such as multi-tasking and the ability to maintain attention by playing a specially designed video game". In fact, the study shows even that certain video games can even produce lasting improvements in conditions such as depression and disorder attention deficit. This does not mean that all games are potentially useful for mental illness, of course, and the scientists emphasize that it is too early to tell if the game is a net positive or negative for the mental faculties.

Although the Apple iPhone has been losing market share of Samsung and other vendors of Android in many parts of the world, their remains of solid support in the United States. The latest figures from com Score show that Apple in us smartphone market share increased between April 2013 and 2013 July although it does not release any new device during that time and although both Samsung and HTC both launched high-profile flagship devices. In total, comScore found that Apple accounted for 40.4% of U.S. in July 2013 smartphone market, up 39.2% three months earlier.

No other supplier of smartphone even posted a double-digit market share in July this year: HTC came the closest with 8%, followed by Motorola in 6.9% and LG at 6.8%. Mora continued its fall in the American smartphone market, as its share of the total market in the United States declined to 4.3% in July.

Android was once again the top in July general smartphone platform, with a 51.8% market share, still more than 10 points higher than the iOS platform global market share. Market share of Microsoft Windows Phone not moved between April and July, however, as comScore found remained in exactly 3% of the market.

Previously I wrote about how to use airtel bis on your pc without any software which has been rocketing. MTN BIS is still the best compared to others, because it offers unlimited data, unfortunately it cannot be used on a PC without a proxy tunneling software and most of these software are not free . Furthermore, Glo offers better services compared to Airtel in terms of BIS, With N400 you get 700mb for a week and N1400 you get 3gb of data for one month. I'm currently using the three (MTN BIS, GLO BIS & AIRTEL BIS) on my PC, I chose the one to use depending on the internet speed, so I use all the three networks Bis to surf the internet and it is working perfectly well. So enough of all this crap! Lets get down with the main thing.
profile name: Glo Bis
Access number: *99***1
Password: blank
No additional settings required.
This settings is tested and trusted I used this as of 18 January 2013. CODES FOR SUBSCRIBING GLO BIS For the weekly, send "coweek" to 777 (700mb) at the cost of N400. For the monthly, send "comonth" to 777 (3gb) at the cost of N1400. Pls share this...
