- Facebook Bug Posts All Tweets to Users' Wall
A Facebook issue affected a number of users a few hours ago as they started seeing their posts on Twitter or Friendfeed automatically posted on their Facebook Wall as well. Anyone with the Twitter or Friendfeed apps for Facebook installed was hit by the problem but it has since been fixed. “Earlier this evening, a small Facebook bug allowed a handful of apps to publish to the stream on behalf of users who had previously authorized the app. The situation has now been resolved, and all application settings will remain intact for users,” Facebook's statement read. The issue became apparent after a great number of people tweeted that their Facebook Wall was being cluttered with Twitter and Friendfeed posts regardless of their preferences. Twitter and Friendfeed both provide official Facebook applications that offer integration with the social network. These apps provide users with the option to automatically forward any update to their Wall as well. Most users don't have this option enabled for obvious reasons – they don't want their Facebook profile filled with content they have made available elsewhere. Earlier in the day though these settings were ignored and the apps began pushing entries from Twitter and Friendfeed to the Wall, leaving many confused and even upset. It...
- India to Become the Largest PHP Development Source on the Internet
In a study released by PHPClasses, the number of PHP developers originating from India has been steadily growing in the last tree years, and the website is anticipating that it will dethrone the United States as the main provider of PHP development workforce around the Globe. Since industry giants like Facebook, Yahoo!, Google, Joomla, Wikipedia, YouTube, WordPress or Digg have switched to open source technologies like Linux, Apache or Memcache, a major boom has been noticed around the programming community regarding PHP development. People started paying more attention to the 14-year-old scripting language due to the huge media coverage it got. PHP communities started flourishing around the web, powered by the hype it received. Immediately, on freelancing websites, the number of PHP jobs began to grow, and professionals started taking it more and more seriously. Huge repositories of PHP-driven applications and scripts sprung around the web, and, of course, on Softpedia's scripts section. PHPClasses has a community of more than 785,000 users, and more than 5,500 submitted PHP classes and packages.

- Mozilla Weave Sync 0.5.0 Released
Mozilla does have a habit of releasing new versions of some of its projects at a lightning fast pace. This can't be expected for its main products, like Firefox, but for its more experimental projects, from the Mozilla Labs, new versions can come as fast as within a week. And now, almost a month to the day, Mozilla Weave Sync 0.5.0 is released, bringing mostly improvements to the underlying technology but also some new features. The Firefox add-on isn't exactly a new product but it isn't that well known either. However, it is one of the most important projects at Mozilla, in the long term, as it could potentially change the way we use browsers, and any type of software for that matter, in a pretty significant way by moving the settings and customizations to the cloud to provide a unified experience across several devices and platforms. As of now though, it is just a prototype project aimed at building the technology and infrastructure necessary for any larger scopes that may come in the future. “Weave Sync lets you securely take your Firefox experience with you to all your Firefox browsers — including our mobile browser, codenamed Fennec. It currently supports continuous synchronization of your bookmarks, browsing history, saved passwords and tabs,“ is how Mozilla describes the product.
