Google and Intel are partnering up to release a new line of Notebooks that will cost just $200, according to a recent report from CNET.
Intel executive VP and chief product officer Dadi Perlmutter recently told the publication that Notebooks running Android priced at $200 are on the way. These devices will utilize Intel's Atom mobile processor. He also stated that Microsoft could make that same move, however, that all depends on if they could charge that low for something running Windows 8.

The handset, recently released by the company formerly known as RIM, apparently shares with friends and family what a user is watching on the internet. It has the ability to reveal the user's actions when viewing certain content online, including pornography.
An earlier report on the BlackBerry Z10 revealed that its deeper integration with BlackBerry Messenger allows a user's contacts to see what songs and videos they are playing. more >>

Shaun King, former pastor and self-described techie-humanitarian, spoke with The Christian Post this week about the new project he's working on, his difficulty leaving pastoral ministry and how churches should be tapping into their members' talents and leveraging social media. The Kentucky native and recent NYC transplant also discusses his Twitter beef with Pastors Mark Driscoll and Rick Warren over statements they've made concerning President Obama's policies and faith.
In 2010, King debuted the first Twitter charity auction, TwitChange (which he no longer owns), to help raise aid for victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti. King, 33, followed up with HopeMob in March of last year, which aims to become "the largest, most active, effective, innovative community of generosity in the world." (Read CP's coverage on how HopeMob). King's crowdfunding platform has won numerous accolades and been spotlighted on Oprah.com, Fast Company and CNN for the way it connects people and organizations with financial needs to people who are able to donate money. Next for the tech innovator is a product called Upfront, a new social platform and possible game-changer King and his colleagues are preparing for launch. Check back with CP for an exclusive report on Upfront.
Below is a transcript, edited for brevity, of CP's phone interview with King, who is married with five children ranging in ages from six months to 13 years old. more >>
