Tech Crunch Interview with Matt Corddry I don’t often share this kind of motivational stuff but there are times when people just make sense and have the same kind of views as you do. Matt Corddry who is the director of Facebook hardware engineering, sums up my thoughts in a short Tech Crunch “Inside Jobs” interview. Here are a few of his quotes if you don’t have time …

My Week with Bing

Michael Microsoft, TechTalk

During a recent trip to the United States I realised how many people use Bing as their primary search engine.
