To support its eco-friendly 100% electric Leaf car model, Nissan has rolled out an original project. The automaker gave ten Leafs to Battersea-based Climate Cars drivers to offer London and Amsterdam citizens a chip—each mile in a Nissan Leaf costs only 1.75p in electricity consumed—taxi service over a weekend. Nissan Leaf is six times cheaper to drive as taxi service and has zero-emission.
The GE company, one of the London 2012 sponsors, has demonstrated its involvement into the upcoming Olympic Games and Paralympic Games by unveiling an interactive map featuring an overview of venues, to which the energy and technology giant has contributed. The new website uses Microsoft’s Bing platform and features a plethora of locations with short description about each of them.
Google, which unveiled a bunch of new products at Google I/O last week, is committed not only to providing its users with more refined services and online experience, but also to sharing its knowledge and expertise with aspiring developers, contributing to the future of the web (and Google itself). The internet giant, which has been engaging younger generation of developers through its programs and seasonal sessions for quite a long time, has launched an online destination, Google Developers Live, which works as “a place for developers to connect face-to-face with Google engineers as well as each other in a live setting,” states the company in a blog post. In addition to this, the king of the web has initiated another two programs, Google Developers Academy and Google Developers University Consortium, which allow users to study when it’s convenient for them, not in real time only.
