  • LinkedIn launches University Pages, helps students learn more about colleges
    LinkedIn launches University Pages, helps students learn more about colleges

    LinkedIn has already branched out a bit with its own blogging and following features for select groups, and now the popular social networking site has introduced a tool geared towards students. Aptly dubbed University Pages, LinkedIn describes the new service as one that’s part of its strategy to help college-bound pupils “at every critical milestone from campus to fulfilling successful careers.”

    Beginning September 12th, LinkedIn’s set to welcome high school students on its network and provide access to the new University Pages, allowing them to explore and rub elbows with about 200 participating universities, both in the US and abroad. Users will then be able to do things such as receive regular updates about campus news / activities and view notable members of each college’s alumni. If one of your favorite schools isn’t there just yet, fret not — LinkedIn says “thousands more” will be given access over the next few weeks.

  • GlassFrogger makes Glass wearers hop in real life to brave simulated streets

    GlassFrogger gets Glass wearers hopping in real life

    Google may keep a tight lid on Glass development, but that hasn’t stopped coders at the Breaking Glass Hackathon from building some clever wearable apps. Take the event’s winning entry, GlassFrogger, as an example: the HTML5-based game recreates Frogger on Google’s eyepiece by making players hop in the real world to cross virtual roads. It’s a multi-platform title, too, with support for any device sporting a modern web browser. GlassFrogger is free to use today, but try to avoid playing while you’re out on the street — there’s enough roadkill inside the game, thank you.

  • Kogan Mobile to wind down after wholesale provider ispONE goes bust

    Telstra wholesaler ispONE enters administration, leaves Kogan Mobile in limbo

    Virtual carriers are only as healthy as the companies that provide their services — and Australia’s Kogan Mobile is learning this the hard way. Its wholesale cellular partner ispONE has just entered administration following a contract dispute with Telstra, ending all its deals for prepaid 3G services and leaving Kogan Mobile no choice but to wind down. Customers have already lost the ability to add or replenish services; they’ll have up to 60 days after a Telstra notice to use any credit they have left, and 180 days to port their numbers elsewhere. While Kogan’s shutdown may only affect about 100,000 people, it still represents an unfortunate loss of competition in a country with few major providers.
