Secrets of J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore Website Revealed [VIDEO]

It’s been two months since author J.K. Rowling whipped Harry Potter fans into a frenzy by releasing only the most cryptic details about what would be on her new site, Pottermore.

The Google+ Project Takes Aim at Facebook [VIDEO]

After several prior failed attempts to challenge social media behemoth Facebook, Google introduced a new service on Tuesday that it hopes will finally do the trick.

Called the Google+ project, it’s currently only available to a select group of Google users — they’ll soon be able to invite others — and it will let people share and discuss status updates, photos and links, just like they do on Facebook.
