Why you'll never have to pay for Facebook

Have you seen this, on one of your friends wall?.

IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY

Millions of Facebook addicts worldwide worry that someday soon they'll have to pay to use the site. Well It's not true! 


Why? - Because Facebook makes its money bringing together as big of an audience as possible and then selling that audience's attention to advertisers. It's a business that works for them.


According to the article that I read on CNN 
If you go to Facebook.com and search for the terms "Facebook free" or "Facebook charge," you'll find hundreds of groups with names like, "If 1 Million People Join Before 9th July 2010 Facebook Will Stay Free!" or "If Facebook Charges A Fee We Will Discontinue Using It." Some of these groups have dozens of users, others have thousands.


During a recent press conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said while Facebook users do care about privacy, the question of whether or not Facebook will eventually charge for its service is actually a much bigger concern among the site's 500 million users.


But are these fears justified?


No! Facebook will never charge you to be a member and use the site.
Don't take it from me. Here's Facebook spokesman Larry Yu on the issue:
"We have absolutely no plans to charge for the basic service of using Facebook."


He continues : "Last year we saw a similar rumor circulating that Facebook was going to begin charging $1.99 to use the site, but this year we're hearing that fee increased to $14.99 with the spread of this rumor. We look forward to hearing what Facebook might be rumored to cost for use next year."


If you press Facebook employees on this, they will tell you the reason they will never charge for access is that putting up a paywall runs counter to the company's mission to make the world more open and connected.


But even if you don't buy that idealistic hoopla, you should understand Facebook has a deep profit motive to never charge you for access.


So while Facebook may charge you for certain bonus features, such as gifts for your friends, or credits to play games like Farmville, it will never charge for basic access to the site.


Why then do people worry Facebook might start charging soon? Probably because Facebook users feel like they're getting something valuable for free, and everybody knows there's no such thing as a free lunch.


Just remember: The fact that you keep coming back to Facebook makes it easier for Facebook to sell more ads -- and make more money.

Google, Intel engage in tag-team tech play


SAN FRANCISCO—A Windows PC desktop powered by a solar cell the size of a postage stamp, several devices that share display contents such as video, photo and notifications seamlessly, a communication tablet that may replace your traditional phone in theoffice, and Google’s Android OS finally getting into Intel’s space—these are what’s in store for consumers, Intel said during the Intel Developer Forum here.
Over the past several years, Intel has been expanding into the mobile devices space, which is growing more rapidly than personal computers.
Intel’s partnership with Google, whose Android is now the most widely used mobile operating system, is expected to accelerate the Santa Clara-based chipmaker’s stalled presence in the smartphone and tablet space.
Intel president and CEO Paul Otellini said smartphones powered by Intel’s Atom chips and running on Android OS would be available in the first half of next year.
The two tech titans will work together to optimize future versions of Android for Intel’s family of low-powerAtom processors. This means that future versions of the Android platform will support Intel technology, in addition to other architectures.
“Combining Android with Intel’s low power smartphone roadmap opens up more opportunity for innovation and choice,” said Andy Rubin, senior vice president at Mobile at Google. “This collaboration will drive the Android ecosystem forward.”
According to Otellini, “by optimizing the Android platform for Intel architecture, we bring a powerful new capability to the market that will accelerate more industry adoption and choice.”
Intel’s demo of a desktop powered by a postage-sized solar cell reaffirms the company’s effort to reduce not only the size of microprocessors but also its power consumption.
Intel’s processor roadmap has now gone into the 22 nm microarchitecture technology with the introduction of thin notebooks called “Ultrabooks.”
The devices are ultrathin powerful notebooks capable of all-day computing with a single battery charge. The Ultrabook also offers 10 days of connected standby battery life.
The device is powered by Intel’s next-generation microprocessor called “Haswell” and it will hit the shelves next year.
Otellini said the Haswell project is a result of the company’s obsession with power reduction.
He predicted the microprocessor platform power innovation will reach levels that are difficult to imagine today.
