How to hide your tweets from Google search?

Ever wanted to remove one unwanted tweet of yours from Google Search? Even if you delete the tweet, Google will still keep the tweet in their cache.

To remove the tweet immediately, Twitter has this suggestion:

  1. Copy the Twitter URL you'd like removed (if you already deleted the tweet just follow Google's URL).
  2. Head over to Google's Content Removal page.
  3. Paste in the Twitter link that you copied in the first step and submit your request.

American University Graduate Proposes to Girlfriend During Commencement

Sarah Cooper and Sam Miller met during an American University freshman orientation event. About three months in from the first date, Miller says he knew Cooper was the one to be with for the rest of his life. But their families encouraged the two college students to wait until after graduation to tie the knot. And soon right on Cooper's commencement day, Miller sprang a surprise - dressed in a dark suit and with a ring in hand on the stage. He got down on one knee making a wedding proposal. She said yes.

Google Introduces Knowledge Graph - Intelligent Search

Google introduced Knowledge Graph, a new way to handle queries that replaces keywords with objects. String of characters are treated as objects instead of merely strings.

For more than four decades, search has essentially been about matching keywords to queries. To a search engine the words [taj mahal] have been just that—two words.

But we all know that [taj mahal] has a much richer meaning. You might think of one of the world’s most beautiful monuments, or a Grammy Award-winning musician, or possibly even a casino in Atlantic City, NJ. Or, depending on when you last ate, the nearest Indian restaurant. It’s why we’ve been working on an intelligent model—in geek-speak, a “graph”—that understands real-world entities and their relationships to one another: things, not strings.

The Knowledge Graph enables you to search for things, people or places that Google knows about—landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art and more—and instantly get information that’s relevant to your query. This is a critical first step towards building the next generation of search, which taps into the collective intelligence of the web and understands the world a bit more like people do.

A search on "The Avengers" gives me the below.

Google's new result answers Microsoft's Bing newly revamped design spotting a snapshot and also one having Wolfram Alpha's computational knowledge engine layout.

Knowledge Graph is available only to U.S. English users for now.

Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung unveiled Galaxy S III, making its debut in Europe on May 29 and a 4G LTE-optimized version for the U.S. market during the summer.

Some of the cool features on Galaxy S III as lifted from Samsung website are:

S Voice
Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell GALAXY S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let yourself sleep a bit more. Answer your phone (or reject a call), turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot.

Social tag
Now it’s even easier to keep track of friends and loved ones. Social tag lets you link the faces in your photo album with their social media streams. Once it’s set, all you have to do is look at their pictures and you’ll see their current status appear.

Direct call
Samsung GALAXY S III even knows when you want to talk. When you are messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and direct call will dial their number for you. No more fumbling through call logs or contacts. Let GALAXY S III do the work.

Smart stay
With the innovative smart stay feature, GALAXY S III automatically recognizes when you are looking at the phone, whether it is to read an e-book or browse the web. The front camera looks deep into your eyes and maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure. What a bright idea.

Smart alert
When you pick up your phone, wouldn’t it be nice if it let you know what has been happening since you’ve been gone? Samsung GALAXY S III knows you came back and gives you a brief vibrating nudge to inform you about missed calls and new messages. How thoughtful is that?

S Beam
Sharing your content with friends nearby should be easy, quick, and even fun. S Beam lets you bond instantly so you can transfer documents, contacts, pictures, music, videos, you name it. Just put the backs of your phones together, connect, share and enjoy.

AllShare Play
There’s another way to share content on various devices. It’s called AllShare Play, and it lets us work together through the magic of DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct, giving us remote access to documents and multimedia files when we work on a different screen somewhere else.

Buddy photo share
It couldn’t be easier to manage and share your photos. The phone recognizes faces and links those for you, using your group profiles for guidance. Now you’re once touch away from sharing with everyone instantly.

AllShare Cast
Wouldn’t it be nice to mirror your phone display onto a big screen wirelessly? Now you can. AllShare Cast lets you do it, and it’s perfect for gamers. After the game you are playing appears on the screen, you can even use your phone’s buttons as a controller with gestures. No wires, no fuss.
