GMail app for iPhone submitted to Apple for review.

Word has been passed to publisher MG Siegler that after four years of the iOS platform existing without an official client for Gmail, one will be released, complete with Push Notifications. Word is that the official Gmail app has not only been developed and prepared for final release, it’s been submitted to Apple for review for the iTunes App Store.
With this first Gmail app for iPhone you should be able to star messages via flags and get these lovely notifications with ease, all of this in what Siegler has been told is the most evolved and nicest look at Gmail that’s thus far been released on the mobile platform as a whole. Perhaps this means a new version for Android is incoming as well.

A few more features can be guessed, most of them having been leaked earlier this month in a video which described changes to Gmail on the web. Contact icons, the deepest search functionality thus far av…

Video: New CPR technique revives man after 63 minutes without pulse.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.
The rules of how to treat cardiac arrest are being re-written at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Technology, new drug treatments, conventional CPR and the use of hypothermia are now being coordinated with great affect - in one case reviving a man who'd been clinically dead for more than an hour.

Transcript: 
Rodney Whitmore is exercising in the physical therapy wing at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. It's part of his recovery regimen. Two months ago in his farm house, Rodney went into cardiac arrest. His heart stopped pumping blood and supplying oxygen to his body. Statistically, Rodney's brain should have been irreversibly damaged after just five minutes. But today, Rodney is fine... and he was clinically dead for more than an hour.

Will Google´s recent acquisition of Motorola Mobility shift  others phone makers to webOS?
In a recent IHS analysis  they said, Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobility may present some new problems for the Android OS in the smartphone market. Other Android licensees might have concerns about Motorola potentially getting preferential treatment when it comes to Google support as well as obtaining favored access to new OS revisions and features. In turn, this could cause Android licensees to shift some of their development efforts to other operating systems, potentially impacting Android's market advance.
Despite, most of the recent possible bidders like Samsung, Sony and HTC that eyed webOS and hesitate at last, may re-think at some point the possibility of license or buy  the OS.
Apple in some way is helping  in favor of shifting  OS to Samsung and HTC from Android  with the bunch of law suits Apple have against them, specially  w…
